    Roseanne Barr is a force of nature. Whether taking the sitcom world by storm, challenging accepted social norms, or battling the wild pigs inhabiting her nut farm in Hawaii, she is not to be trifled with. In this audiobook, Roseanne unleashes her razor-sharp observations on hypocrisy, hubris, and self-perpetuating institutions of questionable value - as well as menopause, pharmaceuticals, and her grandkids. And she's as controversial, original, and funny as ever.

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Definitely made me laugh! And also made me think. Roseanne is honest, smart and wonderful. I wish there were more people in this world with her guts. :)

    Declan Fitzgerald had always been the family maverick, but even he couldn't understand his impulse to buy a dilapidated mansion on the outskirts of New Orleans. All he knew was that ever since he saw Manet Hall, he'd been enchanted - and obsessed - with it. So when the opportunity to buy the house comes up Declan jumps at the chance to live out a dream.

    Would you ever listen to anything by Nora Roberts again?

    No


    What character would you cut from Midnight Bayou?

    Lina. So annoying.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't write many reviews. Love Kate Morton's books to give you an idea what types of books I do enjoy. I was looking for something with a little mystery, and a little ghosts/haunted house thrown in to get in the zone for an upcoming trip I'm taking to New Orleans, so gave this a shot. I just felt it was very cheesy. The main female character was extremely irritating, the love story over the top, the accents annoying, and lots of loose ends, I felt. Certain characters seemed pointless. Maybe it's just me, other reviews are so positive. The one element I enjoyed was the historical back story. Would have liked to spend more time with those characters. And the secondary characters, like Remy and Effie, were enjoyable. A few creepy moments. But overall: meh. Not surprised they made a Made for TV movie out of it. This was my first novel by this author.

    Loved the story and Beatty's journey. But the parallel storyline really dragged for me, and the ending felt abrupt and a disappointing. Still really enjoyed the book, just hoped for more at the end.
