    Justin and Libby Denbe have the kind of life you’d find in the pages of a glossy magazine: A beautiful 14-year-old daughter. A gorgeous brownstone on a tree-lined street in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood. A great marriage, admired by all. A perfect life. When investigator Tessa Leone arrives at the crime scene in the foyer of the Denbes’ home, she finds scuff marks on the floor and a million tiny pieces of bright green Taser confetti. The family appears to have been abducted.

    This is not a genre I pick often. Lisa Gardner is one of my favorites. This book kept my attention, great storyline, set, etc. Excellent narration. Really there were no negatives if you take a book in the segments we choose to review on. Totally worth the credit.

    Story

    This is an interesting book. And those far between. It has a story, a mystery, and intrigue. I think I will need to listen again because the ending really threw me for a loop, in a good way. The drinking, smoking, tatting, piercing I think is becoming interesting to me. This writer knows how to write a story and I love that. The dialog is good, and it is real. I didn't feel that boring sense of the writer went down a check list. All these character are interesting. Young, quick to react, I was there once. I really appreciated the timing in this book. Some of you may it frustrating but I found it special. Good narration, but some the voice were not enough different for me to figure it out right away. Overall I believe you will enjoy this story. I am going to look forward to the next installment.

    Story

    Many novels are depressing, angst ridden. This one is long on angst. I find it too frustrating. With the exception of the language & sex I would label this YA.
    Narration; It seems the last 3 books I have purchase have this new way of using two narrators. Before the male voice did the male voice/the female doing female. In my opinion David Baldacci's producers do this the best. I do not like this switch back and forth male voice doing both then female doing both voices. When you are blind you have to assign the voice to the character. This story was not as difficult to separate/figure out. But the other two were confusing for me. I just do not care for this and hope it is not a trend.

    Singer-songwriter Lucy Moore thought her life was perfect. At just 21, she's already met her soul mate and together they've landed a recording contract. But when her father dies and the love of her life betrays her in more ways than one she returns home to pick up the pieces. On the shores of Mendocino, California, Lucy has some decisions to make. Should she start a solo career? Or should she leave it all behind for some semblance of normalcy in the quiet town she grew up in? And what about Seth, the tortured artist who always seems to be there when she needs him?

    Story

    I ultimately enjoyed this book but in the beginning I really didn't care for the dialog. I also didn't realize being soul mates (as not in the vampire; shape shifter, or anyother way) in the manner we commonly use it was a paranormal activity. I also didn't think the book was served by using the two narrators, both of them are wonderful but I think the book would have been better served with one voice. I have listened to Jeffrey Kafer many times and really love his narration. The story became better as it moved along.

    This book is probably not for you if you like your books fast and erotic. I loved it. It is a long time mystery, with a little magic and the right characters to draw you in. I enjoyed the timing but it is not a flash. I am counting this as my summer beach read.

But there are some in power who don't trust the pair.

    D.Baldacci has made me feel many emotions, but he has never made me cry before. With all the cruelty, violence, twists, and turns. To find the human spirit still alive is heartwarming. There is so much in this book and it is all rich with story. I believe this one maybe my favorite but it is definitely two thumbs up for the writing. Love these narrators. The productions is so good. I believe the best in the business.

    As a child, Landon Lucas Maxfield believed his life was perfect and looked forward to a future filled with promise - until tragedy tore his family apart and made him doubt everything he ever believed. All he wanted was to leave the past behind. When he met Jacqueline Wallace, his desire to be everything she needed came so easy.… As easy as it could be for a man who learned that the soul is breakable and that everything you hoped for could be ripped away in a heartbeat.

    I accidentally found this book. I loved Easy, and I was tentative about buying this book from Landon Lucas's POV. I have to say the narrator made this book work for me. I think the wrong narrator would have ruined the feel of this tender love story. At least this time I knew what happened but there were many surprises. The mark of a really good author that can bring another story to this couple. Easy and now Breakable will join my favorite romances. Worth the credit and thank you for the pleasure of listening to this well written, well narrated story.

    Waking up in Vegas was never meant to be like this. Evelyn Thomas' plans for celebrating her 21st birthday in Las Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man in her room, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened.One thing is certain, being married to one of the hottest rock stars on the planet is sure to be a wild ride.

    Thirty-three-year-old Shea Rigsby has spent her entire life in Walker, Texas - a small college town that lives and dies by football, a passion she unabashedly shares. Raised alongside her best friend, Lucy, the daughter of Walker’s legendary head coach, Clive Carr, Shea was too devoted to her hometown team to leave. Instead she stayed in Walker for college, even taking a job in the university athletic department after graduation, where she has remained for more than a decade.

    Kylie Scott returns with the highly anticipated followup to international best seller LICK Mal Ericson, drummer for the world famous rock band Stage Dive, needs to clean up his image fast - at least for a little while. Having a good girl on his arm should do the job just fine. Mal doesn’t plan on this temporary fix becoming permanent, but he didn’t count on finding the one right girl.

    I listened to Lick, liked it okay. Didn't find the storyline reasonable but it was entertaining.
    I have been down in my back needed something, found this and bought without too much thought. Even in pain this book was funny. Good story too. I lived with a family member much like Mal. So I could relate to his personality. Also lost our mother to cancer. But even if I hadn't had those things to relate to, this is a good love story. It was fun, entertaining, good characters, and good narration. It made a bad day better for me!

    Your subconscious mind is powerful and will work for you without effort. It also works against you based on programs and concepts learned in childhood. Learn how to reprogram your mind to override these immature programs.

    First most of this info has been published many times before. Second and I admit this is personal but the delivery of this author/narrator is such that I found it difficult/impossible to take him seriously. I personally didn't think this book had merit. But possibly if a different narrator gave the information more weight.
