    Story

    If you've listened to any of the books in this series, you'll know what to expect...a good mystery, complete with humor, strong female characters and a little bit of sex thrown in for good measure. If you haven't listened to the series and want a fun, easy book, start with the first in the series: Sex, Murder and a Double Latte. Although they're all stand alone books on their own, I always like to start at the beginning of a series. The narrator has a habit of lowering her voice an octave or two at the end of sentences, which was a bit disconcerting, but I would recommend the books to anyone in the mood for a fun, light book.

    Author of the beloved Bubbles Yablonsky mystery series, Sarah Strohmeyer treats listeners to an entertaining novel about making it in hard times. Kat, a compulsive consumer at New Jersey's many malls, loves to shop until she drops - and it's taking a heavy toll on her marriage. Why else would her husband be using a secret bank account of his own? Finally, Kat is persuaded to join the Penny Pinchers Club. But there is such a thing as being too thrifty.

    Story

    This was a fun and entertaining book. A good listen about making ends meet with a believable story line. The main character is a shopaholic and soon realizes the consequences. Her marriage seems to be faltering and she thinks her husband is having an affair. There was a bit of a mystery, romance and a lot of humor. The author also wrote the Bubbles Yablonsky series and several YA books. Recommend the book to anyone looking for a delightful, fun read.

    Abby Cooper is a P.I., psychic intuitive. But her insight failed her when she didn't foresee the death of one of her clients - or that the lead investigator for the case is the gorgeous blind date she just met. Now, with the police suspicious of her abilities and a killer on the loose, Abby's future looks more uncertain than ever.

    Story

    This is the first in the Psychic Eye series and the author did a good job of introducing a fun, interesting protagonist. Abby Cooper is a relatable character...she could be you or me with the exception of one little detail - she's psychic. The author used one phrase ("in my mind's eye") a number of times...so much it was a bit irritating, but other than that, it was definitely a light, fun listen but a great start to the series.

    When an attack leaves one of the members of the Women's Murder Club struggling for her life, the others fight to keep a madman behind bars before he hurts anyone else. And Lindsay Boxer and her new partner in the San Francisco police department try to stop a series of kidnappings: children and their nannies are being plucked off the streets.

    Story

    I like the Women's Murder Club series and have listened to all of them, however this is not one of his best. It's good, but not great and from James Patterson, I somehow expect great. As always, Patterson and Paetro incorporate several story lines in the book...there are a few loose ends at the conclusion of the book, but they didn't annoy me as much as they annoyed some reviewers. Instead, I look to the 7th in the series to follow up on those cliffhangers.

    Media consultant Veronica St. John has been hired to teach a rugged Navy SEAL to impersonate a European prince who's been targeted by terrorists. But one conversation and Veronica knows there's no way she can turn streetwise New Yorker Joe Catalanotto into nobility. Joe, on the other hand, is confident he's got what it takes. Two days isn't a lot of time to get the job done...but it's enough time to fall in love.

    Story

    I wish I had read the reviews (or at least read this was a Harlequin book) before purchasing, but unfortunately, I did neither and bought the book, hoping for a light, fun listen. I lasted about an hour and a half, mainly out of a vain hope that it would get better. The majority of the 90 minutes was spent detailing an attraction between two characters; over and over and over and over. Mental note to self: next time you purchase a book, read the reviews first.
