    Nestled on the Oregon coast is a small town of rocky beaches and rugged charm. Locals love the land’s unspoiled beauty. Developers see it as a potential gold mine. When newcomer Hank Cooper learns he’s been left an old friend’s entire beachfront property, he finds himself with a community’s destiny in his hands. Cooper has never been a man to settle in one place, and Thunder Point was supposed to be just another quick stop. But Cooper finds himself getting involved with the town. And with Sarah Dupre, a woman as complicated as she is beautiful.

    Music Lover says: "Good new series by Carr"

    If you could sum up The Wanderer in three words, what would they be?

    Charming, picturesque, enjoyable.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Speed it up.


    Which character – as performed by Therese Plummer – was your favorite?

    Landon


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It left me with a cozy feeling, a smile of my face and a desire to read the next two in the series.


    Any additional comments?

    The story has a slow start before any romance gets started. There are four romances in this story of a variety of ages. As in the Virgin River series, the introduction of a character in this book is a teaser for upcoming sequels.

And when he is killed, Claire becomes the prime suspect. District Attorney Robert Cassidy knows Claire is damning herself with lie after lie about the murder, even as he feels her drawing him into her world and her very soul....

    OLIVIA says: "Sandra Brown at her Best!!"
    "Not enough romance and not enough suspense."

    Story
    What did you like best about French Silk? What did you like least?

    I liked the set up of the murder. I liked the character of Yasmine, the troubled ex-supermodel and her obsessive love life with a married man. I liked her story more than the two main characters. I hated that the bad guy was kind of thrown in at the last minute. It didn't make sense after all of the investigation. I didn't feel that there was a romance or any suspense. The female lead character was never in any danger to be rescued by the investigator/love interest. I like that element in romantic suspense.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Sandra Brown? Why or why not?

    Sandra Brown is the absolute best at romantic suspense in my opinion with Nora Roberts a close second. French Silk is not a good example. I will never turn down a Sandra Brown novel.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration made the lead female character sound more like Scarlett O’Hara than a well respected business woman.


    Was French Silk worth the listening time?

    No, it was way too long at nearly 16 hours.


    Any additional comments?

    The book is dated. No cell phones or internet or updated forensics. There is an actual pay phone used. (I haven't seen one of those in a decade) The male lead was an ADA, but he was investigating the murder without any police help. It's Sandra Brown so there is lots of explicit sex.

    Story

    Several million bucks, stolen from the mob... all caught on video, with no chance of redemption.

    Now one man must face the entire Chicago Outfit, a group of hardened Mafia enforcers, a psychotic bookie, the most dangerous hitman on earth, and Detective Jacqueline Daniels.... His name is Tequila. And he likes those odds.

    Patty says: "Not up to standard"
    "More gore, less Jack, no Dick Hill."

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Where is Dick Hill? He's a great Harry!!


    What could J. A. Konrath have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    More of Jack's personal life with her first husband and more humor from Harry.


    What three words best describe Luke Daniels’s performance?

    Not. Dick. Hill.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Shot of Tequila?

    Some of the more gruesome scenes, especially ones involving a particular female character.


    Any additional comments?

    Average J.A. Konrath - gore, violence, dark humor.
