    Serge Storms, that loveable thermonuclear vigilante and one-stop-Florida-trivia-shop, has been leaving corpses strewn across the Sunshine State for more than a decade. The authorities—especially one tenacious state agent—have begun to notice the exponential body count, and send a police task force to track down Serge. Could his luck finally have run out?

    but it took me a couple of months to get through. The performance was good, but the story, I found lacking.

    The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased....

    Story

    Great listen and I was fascinated by how much information contained in the book I had never heard before. At first I thought the narration was a little dull, but I got used to it pretty quickly and the story more than made up for it.

    From the larger, louder half of the world-famous magic duo Penn & Teller comes a scathingly funny reinterpretation of The Ten Commandments. They are The Penn Commandments, and they reveal one outrageous and opinionated atheist’s experience in the world.

    Matter of fact, hilarious stories told only like Penn Jillette can. Listening to him in this book makes me want to hop on a plane to Vegas and see his show and meet him after.

  • Saving Ceecee Honeycutt

    Laugh-out-loud funny and deeply touching, Beth Hoffman's sparkling debut is, as Kristin Hannah says, "packed full of Southern charm, strong women, wacky humor, and good old-fashioned heart." It is a novel that explores the indomitable strengths of female friendship and gives us the story of a young girl who loses one mother and finds many others.

    Jeanne says: "A Wonderful Listen!"
    "Could anyone not love this?"
    Overall

    From the beginning, I cared about this girl and her story - with humor and the perfect narration.

    "Of all of my novels, After the Night remains one of my personal favorites – and Faith Devlin and Gray Rouillard are two of my favorite characters. Faith is strong, proud, and fearless, and Gray – well, he’s just downright sexy. Faith’s search for the truth about the devastating scandal surrounding her mother and Gray’s father blazes with intrigue. Add some sultry Southern hear, and you’ve got a real scorcher of a listen." (Linda Howard)

    Judy says: "Can I give 6 stars?"
    "Hard to warm up to.."
    Overall

    this story about longing after a man who has always treated a woman so badly. First Linda Howard novel for me; most likely last.

    Best Bet is the story of a young woman’s journey to find out about the world, herself, and what she’s left behind. Humorous and heartfelt, the novel underscores the importance of friends, family, and a sense belonging. The characters in this modest but neighborly small town prove that a person need not be well-known or well-heeled to be happy, and that an ordinary existence made up of small but genuine moments can satisfy a soul that is hungry for life in all its glories and disappointments.

    Maryalyce says: "Nice continuation of the series"
    "Nice continuation of the series"
    Overall

    This is the first Laura Pedersen book I have listened to and I have read the first couple of books in this series. I enjoyed them all and the narration was true to what I had imagined from reading the books previously. I am sure you could listen to this without the first two books, but I would definitely recommend getting them all in order. The characters, like the story, are fun and enjoyable.

    Meet 22-year-old Cherry Pye (nee Cheryl Bunterman), a pop star since she was 14 - and about to attempt a comeback from her latest drug-and-alcohol disaster.Now meet Cherry again: in the person of her undercover stunt double, Ann DeLusia. Ann portrays Cherry whenever the singer is too indisposed - meaning wasted - to go out in public. And it is Ann-mistaken-for-Cherry who is kidnapped from a South Beach hotel by obsessed paparazzo Bang Abbott.

    Suzn F says: "Laugh Out Loud"
    "Every bit as good as all Hiaasen"
    Overall

    I loved this as much as every other Carl Hiaasen novel I have read, but the narrator was very dry and disappointing. As always, the characters are over the top and entertaining as heck, but a good narrator could have enhanced the experience immensely.

    From the number-one New York Times best-selling author, a novel about three very different women who become friends while seeking refuge in an old beach house.

    "Judith Light narrating - what a treat!"

    The story was right off the news, interesting, with likable characters. It was a wee bit predictable, but not annoyingly so. The narration was excellent!

    In this darkly funny story, Ray and Jewel Kaiser try (and push) their luck at the Paradise casino. What curious events ensue, what tricks of fortune and misfortune, make up the fabric of this novel about wising up better late than never.

    "What happened?"
    Overall

    This story seemed to have some potential, but instead it was just tedious. And, if someone could explain the ending to me, I would feel better about it. I listened to the last 20 minutes 3 times and still cannot figure out what happened. And trust me, it was not that deep. Skip this one.

    Perry's IQ is only 76, but he's not stupid. His grandmother taught him everything he needs to know to survive: she taught him to write things down so he won't forget them. She taught him to play the lottery every week. And, most important, she taught him whom to trust. When Gram dies, Perry is left orphaned and bereft at the age of 31. Then his weekly Washington State Lottery ticket wins him 12 million dollars, and he finds he has more family than he knows what to do with.

    Lyman says: "lottery"
    "Most enjoyable"
    Overall

    This is a touching story with indelible characters and top-notch narration.
