    Maggody Police Chief Arly Hanks is all shook up when she hears that her mother collapsed during a pilgrimage to Graceland and is in a Memphis hospital. Another member of the tour is pushed to her death from a hotel balcony. A prominent Maggody citizen stands accused of the murder. Arly's suspicious mind tells her to snap into action--it's now or never--before the touring residents of Maggody are returned to sender ... in a hearse.

    Overall

    A friend of mine turned me on to Joan Hess' Arly Hanks series some time ago and I was more than delighted to find a few of them here on Audible.com.

    "Misery Loves Maggody" is one of the funniest Maggody books yet. I was laughing so hard the tears ran down my face. If you love some great humor with your mysteries, I highly recommend this book (series). Also, the narration by CJ Critt is superb!

    Number-one New York Times best-selling author Charlaine Harris has won numerous awards for her Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire series, which has been adapted into the hit HBO show True Blood. In this 13th and final book, a murder rocks the town of Bon Temps and Sookie is arrested for the crime. After making bail, she sets out to clear her name - but her investigation only leads to more deaths.

    Story

    I just finished listening to Dead Ever After for the second time and loved it more the second time around. Sookie grew up...."I'm Sookie Stackhouse and I belong here." I wanted to cheer out loud for her.

    Charlaine, thanks for Sookie's adventures and the fun ride it was watching her character develop into this self-assured woman who knew she could handle whatever life had to throw at her. I know I'll be listening to the whole series every year or two to enjoy it again and again.

    Johanna Parker, thanks for some of the best narration ever. You are truly the voice of Sookie and her Bon Temps buddies. I loved listening to every word.

    Not so very long ago, Eragon - Shadeslayer, Dragon Rider - was nothing more than a poor farm boy, and his dragon, Saphira, only a blue stone in the forest. Now the fate of an entire civilization rests on their shoulders. months of training and battle have brought victories and hope, but they have also brought heartbreaking loss. And still, the real battle lies ahead: they must confront Galbatorix. When they do, they will have to be strong enough to defeat him. And if they cannot, no one can.

    Story

    I've loved all the Inheritance novels. Gerard Doyle has been the greatest narrator ever. (I especially loved Saphira's voice.) I was tearful at the end of this book, but not without hope. A fine first four books for such a young author and I have to say this last one is my favorite. Thanks, Christopher, for the wonderful journey.

    Longtime defense attorney Mickey Haller is recruited to change stripes and prosecute the high-profile retrial of a brutal child murder. After 24 years in prison, convicted killer Jason Jessup has been exonerated by new DNA evidence. Haller is convinced Jessup is guilty, and he takes the case on the condition that he gets to choose his investigator, LAPD Detective Harry Bosch.

    Andrew Pollack says: "Brilliantly executed"
    "I loved it!"
    Overall

    I've read (listened to) all of Michael Connelly's novels and I felt this is one of his best. I couldn't stop listening. I hope the next novel in this series is in the works to come along soon.

    Story

    For some strange reason the publisher changed narrators, from Marguerite Gavin to Gigi Bermingham, and I found this very difficult to listen to being used to Ms. Gavin's voice for the first 5 books. I wish I had noticed the narrator change before purchasing and listened to the sample first. I totally agree with the other comments here regarding the narrator issue. I had to give up listening and downloaded the book to my Kindle so I could read it instead.

    Madeline Dare, a tough-talking, shotgun-toting ex-debutante, is not your average detective. Then again, not much about her life is what she expected. Born of old money into high society, she married into a Syracuse farming family and a bottom-of-the-food-chain job writing puff pieces for the local newspaper. Her emotional barometer these days ranges from dry irony to whining exasperation.

    Jovanna says: "A lot of fun"
    "Witty and a great mystery."
    Overall

    I loved this book. I laughed out loud at some of the lines in this book. The little twists and turns in the plot plus background information added so much to this novel. I started listening to it yesterday morning and finished it last evening. I couldn't put it down and hated it to end. I can hardly wait to start listening to "The Crazy School."

    The narrator, Hillary Huber, was perfect for this story. She delivered the great lines in this book with perfection. A great choice for this book.
