    Thriller scribe Sophie Katz is as hard-boiled as a woman who drinks Grande Caramel Brownie Frappuccionos can be. So Sophie knows it's not paranoia, or post-divorce, living-alone-again jitters, when she becomes convinced that a crazed reader is sneaking into her apartment to reenact scenes from her books. The police, however, can't tell a good plot from an unmarked grave.

    Overall

    I'm not sure what I was looking at on Audible to find this book & author, but was it ever my lucky day!! This book is so fun and the narrator is terrific, too. I download my books on CDs and listen to them in the car. I sat in the car in my garage (not running of course, did not want to become one of Kyra's next characters) listening to the final disc and couldn't wait to rush up here and write a review.

    Rest assured, I will put all of her books in my wish list.

    I truly think her books are right up there with the Women's Murder Club novels by James Patterson and I adore him.

    Thanks, Audible, for another great female author who writes exceptionally fun and entertaining books.

    Born in the worst suburb in Pittsburgh, Elaine Brogan is bright, beautiful and bold. When her father is falsely arrested for passing counterfeit $100 bills, Elaine vows to become a Secret Service agent and track down the man responsible. After barely surviving the arduous Secret Service Training Academy in Laurel, Maryland, she is transferred to bleak and blustery Great Falls, Montana. But things do not go as planned, and Elaine soon finds herself betrayed and thrown into an adventure that takes her halfway around the world, from dark and mysterious Sofia, Bulgaria, to Moscow Russia, and finally, to Milan, Italy.

    Story
    Would you listen to Lust, Money & Murder again? Why?

    Most definitely! I was anxiously waiting for this book to be on Audible as I am spoiled to listening rather than reading. The wait was not in vain! From the first word of the first disc, it had my rapt attention.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Mike Wells writes such an intriguing plot he kept me enthralled from the first word till the last. All I could think was how much research had to go into writing this book because the things that happened were so detailed and accurate. I felt like I was experiencing a whole new World.


    What does Sue Sharp bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The reason I prefer audio books is because the reader makes you feel like you are there like a little mouse in the corner or a fly on the wall, eavesdropping.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, there was a very moving part in the book that made me cry happy tears but I'm not going to divulge it as it would give away too much and the next reader needs to have my same experience without me ruining it for them.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope Audible is smart enough to get more of Mike Wells' books in audio. I will buy them all and will recommend them to my friends. I love Audible and am very spoiled to listening to my books. I really feel like I am there.

    The inspiration for the hit television series Medium, Allison DuBois now brings listeners into her psychic experiences in We Are Their Heaven. Recalling her communication with spirits who have touched her over the years, she reveals that the dead are trying to reach their loved ones all the time, not because they're bound to us, but because we are their happiness, we are their heaven.

    Allison's audio books are so much better because they are narrated by her and you really feel what she is saying with true meaning.

    So much of what she says happens after death and her connection with spirits, I truly wish I could get a session with her.

    I hope she writes more books after her travels.

    Professional psychic Abigail Cooper is about to discover that some cold cases are better off dead....

    As the FBI's newest civilian profiler, Abby Cooper is using her powers of intuition to help solve a backlog of the bureau's cold cases. But when she's the only one who's convinced that several separate cold cases are related, she'll have to call on every intuitive bone in her body before she's the one put on ice.

    I enjoy ALL Abigail Cooper, Psychic Detective novels. Each one just gets better and I can't wait for the next one. I am so glad to see her relationship with Dutch proceeding. These novels have just enough suspense and action, without being gory.

    I am truly sad that Vision Impossible is her last Abigail Cooper novel, or at least the last one Audible has. Hopefully, Victoria Laurie will read her reviews and see that WE WANT MORE.

    Overjoyed at Maryanne’s engagement, amateur sleuth Sophie Katz can’t wait for the wedding vows and party toasts to begin. But then Dena—best friend, bridesmaid and all-around vixen—is mysteriously shot just after the announcement. Leave this to the authorities? No way. Dena may never walk again, and Sophie vows to marry her fists with the shooter’s face.

    Once again Kyra has kept me in suspense and laughter until the very end. Once I start to listen to one of her books, I can't wait to hear it all and yet, I don't want it to end. It's like she can't write books fast enough for me to listen to.

    I LOVED this book and I love the fact she brings back all the main characters each time giving her books continuity.

    Please keep writing, Kyra. Thanks for using your talent so well.

    In this rollicking tale, best-selling author Dixie Cash - author of My Heart May Be Broken but My Hair Still Looks Great - sets Salt Lick's own sleuthing cosmetologists on a collision course with the Big Apple. On an all-expenses-paid trip to a New York PI convention, the Texas Tornadoes hope to do some serious shopping. But that's before they stumble across a serial killer.

    I could not stop laughing while listening to this book. I didn't want it to end. I know there is another one out as I went on Lone Star Audio to check. I sure hope Audible gets this one and real soon.

    Please don't stop writing.

    Debbie Sue Overstreet and Edwina Perkins-Martin are two of the sassiest hairdressers in Salt Lick, Texas. But these two spunky ladies do more than spice up the do's of their gossipy patrons. They also moonlight as the Domestic Equalizers, P.I.s with the best hair in the Lone Star State. Not ones to turn down a juicy assignment, Debbie Sue and Edwina get involved in a case of missing horses.

    This review is really for all 3 Dixie Cash books I've read so far. These are so funny, they are what I call, "be careful or you will have to change pants" funny. I really LOVE these books and can't wait to download the one after this that I have purchased. My days are so much more fun and my smile is even brighter than before when I am listening to one of their books. I don't want them to end and can't wait for the next one, which I hope is forthcoming. Being a Texas girl misplaced into Nevada, I love hearing books that sound like home.

    Please keep up the good work and keep writing. I love all the characters so keep bringing them back, too.

    Mystery writer and dabbling recreational sleuth Sophie Katz is head over heels in love--with a three-bedroom Victorian. She's just got to have it, despite a few drawbacks. Her slimy ex is the Realtor. The rich, creepy seller wants her to join San Francisco's spirited Specter Society. And her first tour of the house reveals, well, a lifeless body clutching a cameo with a disturbing history of its own.

    Overall

    This was the best Sophie Katz yet. I didn't think they could get any better but they did. My friends and I are into supernatural and paranormal so I could relate to this one the most.

    Now that I have finished all of the Sophie Katz novels that Krya has written so far, I just hope she keeps writing these for many years to come.

    She really makes my long commute to work just fly by.

    Sophie Katz's relationship with the irresistible and occasionally insufferable P.I. Anatoly Darinsky is on the fritz when a friend recruits Sophie's investigation skills to decode her possibly two-timing husband's strange behavior. When Sophie shows up in a short, red cocktail dress and her friend's hubby winds up dead, the loveable would-be sleuth can't help but take on the job.

    TRACY says: "Not as engaging as previous books"
    "REALLY DARK REVELATIONS"
    Overall

    I just can't get enough of Kyra's books. I am really upset that there is only one more Sophie Katz novel to listen to, but I am going to listen to her other books too.

    I never considered myself to be naive or lacking in worldly knowledge but this book sent me to Google to see if this was only Kyra's imagination or if this world really existed - guess what, it does.

    Another great and wonderful book from Kyra. Please continue to write Sophie Katz books.

    The last time Sophie saw sexy P.I. Anatoly Darinsky, he practically danced a jig when she waved goodbye; a normal reaction for a man who'd nearly bought the farm trying to protect her from her own foolishness. What are the chances he'd agree to take incriminating pictures of her sister's philandering husband? Or that he'd let her tag along, you know, for research?

    Jessica says: "Great Chick Lit Mystery"
    "HOE DO KYRA'S BOOKS JUST KEEP GETTING BETTER?"
    Overall

    Just finished this second book in the Sophie Katz series today and it is better than the first.

    I have become addicted to Kyra's books.

    I loved the ending to this book, which I'm certainly not going to give away in a review.

    I have already favorably compared Kyra to James Patterson in my last review; but, now I am putting her right up there with my 3 favorite female authors, Kate Wilhelm, Dana Stabenow & J.D. Robb.

    Please keep writing Sophie Katz books, Kyra.

    Sincerely, Sandi
