    There's a body buried behind a Mississippi farmhouse. Grace Montgomery knows who it is, and she knows why it happened. She was only 13 the night it all went wrong. And now, like then, she has no choice but to keep her mouth shut.

    Overall

    I bought the first two books in this series because they were highly rated and we were terribly disappointed. The plot is weak, the characters are shallow and inconsistant and we didn't bother finishing either of them.

    Sometimes in life you need a little breathing room, especially when your life has just fallen apart. Dr. Isabel Favor, America's diva of self help, knows this all too well. She's lost her fiancé to an earth mother, her accountant has absconded with her money, and her self-help empire is in shambles. She flees the country to Tuscany, waiting for life to settle down, but the biggest disaster lies just ahead. On one unforgettable night, she's about to meet Lorenzo Gage, Hollywood's favorite villain.

    Brenda says: "An enjoyable read."
    "unbearable"
    Overall

    I was not able to finish this book. The plot was lame, the characters were unlikeable and cliche and the sex scenes made me cringe they were so badly written. Sorry. I tried to like them. I hate to give anyone a bad rating, but I just did not like this book.

    Story

    Tananarive Due, author of The Living Blood won the American Book Award and is praised as Stephen King's equal by Publishers Weekly. In The Good House, Due sets a story of ancient powers and modern retribution in a small Pacific Northwest town. When a young woman returns to her grandmother's empty mansion, she is pitted against demonic forces that have poisoned her family for generations.

    Rebecca says: "FABULOUS!"
    "lukewarm"
    Overall

    I am having a difficult time caring enough about the characters to continue listening. The plot is sketchy, not easy to follow, and the comparison to Stephen King is superficial at best. She lacks his command of language and falls way short in flashbacks, descriptions and characteriziation. I usually will read anything that crosses my path, and can find something to recommend about it, but this one is an exception.

    Summer 1924: On the eve of a glittering Society party, by the lake of a grand English country house, a young poet takes his life. The only witnesses, sisters Hannah and Emmeline Hartford, will never speak to each other again....Winter 1999: Grace Bradley, 98, one-time housemaid of Riverton Manor, is visited by a young director making a film about the poet's suicide. Ghosts awaken, and memories, long consigned to the dark reaches of Grace's mind, begin to sneak back through the cracks.

    Overall

    This is my first review and I don't like reading long reviews, so this will be very brief. The writing style is classy, the story and characters drag you into their world so you don't want to stop listening. You may think you know, but you don't know how it will end until the very end. All in all a very tight story, classic mystery setting, believable characters and compelling pace. (and it was on SALE!)
