    Trouble seems to find Stephanie Plum no matter where she goes, and once again she's struggling with her tangled love life, her chaotic family, and her God-given gift for destroying every car she drives. This time, Stephanie has decided to quit her job as a bounty hunter. She wants something safe. She wants something normal. She's tired of creeps, weirdos, and stalkers. But just when she thinks she's out, they pull her back in!

    Overall

    Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum is back at it again...if you've enjoyed past Stephanie Plum books, you'll enjoy this one. If you are new to the series, you really need to listen to or read the first book; and frankly, I recommend reading it as opposed to listening as the reader isn't "the" Stephanie Plum we know and enjoy as portrayed by Lorelei King.

    Lorelei King sets the standard by which any and all readers are to be judged. She breathes life into each of these characters and hands down is the best female reader out there. Period. Her timing and cadence are perfect. Her portrayal of each character is perfect. To have anyone else read these books would be terribly disappointing. (She also does extrememly well in Evanovich's "Full" series.) If you're seeking comedy and entertainment, you'll find it here.

    Stephanie Plum is back in all-new adventure from #1 bestselling author Janet Evanovich.

    Story

    You remember when Fonzie jumped the shark on Happy Days, and you knew the series had exhausted itself? This is the case here. There were jokes word-for-word from other books. The laughs were few. This entry has a very contrived plot with a poor effort to tie it all together in the end. Again Stephanie is bemoaning her life and job. I've heard this book before.

    Let me say that the Plum series is one that I've loved dearly and have listened to the books 7 to current over and over and over when I need a laugh. I listen from 7 on because of the superior reading skills of Lorelei King. She's the voice of Stephanie, family and friends. CJ Critt fell terribly short. I wish they'd re-release the first 6 books with Lorelei King reading.

    As bad as I hate to think that the Plum series is coming to an end, we all know it's time...I'm waiting for a wedding full of mayhem and hilarity which should be the inevitable conclusion to the series.

    Addison Holmes is at it again. When priceless Russian gems are stolen on their way to Savannah and the courier is murdered, all the clues lead back to an escort service that seems above reproach. But looks can be deceiving. Throw in a sexy detective and a dangerous FBI agent, and Addison finds out very quickly that she's in way over her head. But nothing is going to stop her from getting her man.

    ...in the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. But Mrs. Evanovich does it MUCH better. Liliana Heart's attempts to create a romantic tension fall pitifully short and just left me depressed.

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    The way I can best describe my experience in listening to this story is "completely enthralled." I feel like a child listening to a fascinating story told by a master storyteller, and I'm so anxious to hear what's next. I can imagine each detail, I can feel the emotions, and I'm hanging on the edge of my seat! A great narrator and a great author keep you enthralled until the very end. And nothing is lacking here. It's going to be a very short 30 hours! :-) Wow!

    With her knack for being in trouble's way, Sookie witnesses the firebombing of Merlotte's, the bar where she works. Since Sam Merlotte is now known to be two-natured, suspicion falls immediately on the anti-shifters in the area. Sookie suspects otherwise, but her attention is divided when she realizes that her lover, Eric Northman, and his "child", Pam, are plotting to kill the vampire who is now their master. Gradually, Sookie is drawn into the plot - which is much more complicated than she knows.

    "But it's always so sad..."
    Overall

    This particular entry wasn't as enjoyable as previous ones to me. I can't tell you how hard it is to admit this as it's one of my favorite series. But there's that underlying sadness that doesn't seem to be getting any happier. The relationship with Eric was doomed from the beginning. It was never meant to be. It's down to Bill and Sam. And Sam seems to be the best choice for who and what Sookie is. I know it's all building to a climax, but it's just sad each of the last few books. I want to feel better when I read a book--not worse. Well, this was left really open-ended so we'll see about the next one.

    Condemned and shunned for black magic, Rachel Morgan has three days to get to the annual witches' conference and clear her name, or be trapped in the demonic ever-after - forever after.

    But a witch, an elf, a living vampire, anda pixy in one car, going across the country? Talk about a recipe for certain disaster, even without being the targets for assassination.

    Alexi Rain says: "A comment on Credits"
    "Best one yet"
    Overall

    As Rachel grows and matures and learns from her mistakes and successes, this book culminates many of the issues building until now. You'll see resolutions occur and new issues develop for the future. But most surprisingly, and yet again not, you'll see a relationship with Trent develop that begins with learning to trust one another. You'll see a side of Trent that hasn't been apparent until now and a compassion develop in Rachel for him and a new respect begin occur. The battles in this book are some of the most intense to date, and the emotions of the book are very infectious. And Rachel begins to accept who and what she is. No spoilers here. If you enjoy the series, you'll be enthralled by this installment.

    The Arcane Society was born in turmoil when the friendship of its two founders evolved into a fierce rivalry. Sylvester Jones and Nicholas Winters each sought to enhance their individual psychic talents. Winters’ efforts led to the creation of a device of unknown powers called the Burning Lamp. Each generation the Winters man who inherits it is destined to develop multiple talents—and the curse of madness.

    Anne says: "Story is great- narration poor"

    ...but I cannot finish because of the narrator. She sounds like a bucket of rusty nails. Her male voices sound weird and too dramatic. I wish I had not bought this audio and had instead bought the hard cover. I wasted good credits/money.

    The Republicans are coming to St. Paul for their convention. Throwing a big party is supposed to be fun, but crashing the party are a few hard cases the police would rather have stayed away. Chief among them is a crew of professional stick-up men who've spotted several lucrative opportunities, ranging from political moneymen with briefcases full of cash to that armored-car warehouse with the weakness in its security system.

    Tony B. says: "Another winner for Davenport fans"
    "Classic Davenport!"
    Overall

    Always a wild ride with many unexpected curves. A very excellent listen--Ferrone is an awesome reader for this series! One message for Mr. Sandford. WRITE FASTER! :-) Just kidding--but truly can't wait for the next in the Virgil Flowers series later this summer.
