    Lacey Terwilliger's shock and humiliation over her husband's philandering prompt her to add some bonus material to Mike's company newsletter: stunning Technicolor descriptions of the special brand of "administrative support" his receptionist gives him. The detailed mass e-mail to Mike's family, friends, and clients blows up in her face, and before one can say "instant urban legend", Lacey has become the pariah of her small Kentucky town and a media punch line....

    What made the experience of listening to And One Last Thing... the most enjoyable?

    There was plenty of humor to offset the seriousness.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main character was, of course, my favorite. She was funny and down to earth. Listening to her struggle while she kept her sense of humor was entertaining. Ms. Harper can make her characters shine.


    What does Amanda Ronconi bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    When listening to the book, you believe that the reader is the main character. Some times when I read rather than listen I might not put the same spin on the dialog as Ms. Ronconi does.


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

    I laughed a lot.


    Any additional comments?

    Thoroughly enjoyed the book. Have gotten other Harper books since listening to this one.

  • No Turning Back: Kathleen Turner, Book 1

    It’s the middle of the night when Kathleen hears fighting coming from her neighbor Sheila’s apartment. As disturbing as that is, it’s the ominous sound of silence afterwards that keeps Kathleen from falling back to sleep. Slipping from bed with the intention of making sure everything is okay, Kathleen knocks on her friend’s door, only to find Sheila murdered, her naked body sprawled on sheets stained crimson with her blood. Shock and horror are followed by gritty determination when it becomes clear that Sheila’s death isn’t random and it isn’t the result of a jealous boyfriend.

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    As a book to read, yes. As a book on tape, no. The story is fine, but not the narration.


    What didn’t you like about Angela Dawe’s performance?

    Her inflection was irritating, for instance, she would emphasize the wrong word in a sentence. Also, if I set the volume for the main character's voice, I could not hear the other characters' voices. I was constantly having to change the volume depending on which character was speaking. Since I listen to my books as I travel, it was irritating.


    Do you think No Turning Back needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Would probably read a follow-up.

    As a former Navy SEAL turned cop, Joe Quinn has seen the face of evil and knows just how deadly it can be. When he first met Eve Duncan, he never expected to fall in love with a woman whose life would be defined by her dual desires to bring home her missing daughter and discover the truth behind her disappearance - no matter how devastating. With the help of CIA agent Catherine Ling, they make a shocking discovery that sheds new light on young Bonnie’s abduction and puts Quinn squarely in the crosshairs of danger.

    I don't think that too many readers will like this ending. I am not sure I will even read the next book. Disappointed.
