    Interesting history. Good plot with great twist at the end. I enjoyed the authors take on what happened to the Templars. He made this a good mystery with action and suspense! Quite pleased!

    In The Second Assistant, readers across the country found a heroine they loved to love in Lizzie Miller, the smart and witty East Coast girl clinging for dear life to the bottom rung of the Hollywood ladder. But no more coffee runs and sorting thumbtacks by color for Lizzie; she's been promoted. As first assistant to Scott Wagner, now president of The Agency and one of Hollywood's premiere movers and shakers, she's making decisions and learning the ins and outs of the business.

    As sequels go...this was good. I was a little sorry not to relive the Hollywood drama that was in the Second Assistant...instead she ran away to avoid everything. But I still thought the story light and engaging. The author still managed to be funny without being corny and unbelievable.

    Being dead sucks. Make that being undead sucks. Literally. Just ask Thomas C. Flood. Waking up after a fantastic night unlike anything he's ever experienced, he discovers that his girlfriend, Jody, the woman of his dreams, is a vampire. And surprise! Now he's one, too.

    Overall

    I enjoyed seeing characters repeated from the author's book Dirty Job. The characters are quirky and outrageously funny. This is my favorite narrator so far. He does an awesome job of carrying you along from character to character with great verve. I have even gone so far as to listen to something just because he is the narrator!

    Anna has waited a long time to fall in love and now that she has, she's not going to let her boyfriend Charlie's mother stand in her way. Meredith Granger is frighteningly well-cultured and impossible to impress. So far, Anna hasn't even been allowed to meet her. But when Charlie leaves the country on business for the summer, Anna decides to take matters into her own hands. Reinventing herself from top to toe, Anna embraces a whole new life.

    Overall

    I was a little disappointed with this book...It started out okay with the girl going after what she wanted - to be with her guy. In order to do this she had to tackle her "hoping she was her soon-to-be-mother-in-law". This is fine...she made her plans to become her new bestfriend while Charlie is out of town and then proceeds to bumble her way through meeting after meeting. Finally she goes so far as to cancel her plans to meet Charlie to hang out with his mother so that she can have her invite to the final party. However I bummed out that the ending was predictable in the fact that Charlie finds another girl and Anna and him break it off... Well dah!!! Predictable plot and not very imaginative characters. Put I enjoyed the narrators animation of this story. She alone kept me sucked in - sort of...

    Mma "Precious" Ramotswe sets up a detective agency in Botswana on the edge of the Kalahari Desert, making her the only female detective in the country. At first, cases are hard to come by. But eventually, troubled people come to Precious with a variety of concerns. Potentially philandering husbands, seemingly schizophrenic doctors, and a missing boy who may have been killed by witch doctors all compel Precious to roam about in her tiny van, searching for clues.

    Overall

    This story drug on and on and on. I thought - Hey! this will be a great little mystery book, but instead she puts down each of her clients saying that because she was a woman she could figure everything out. Irritating!!! It started with the crocodile seen and went on til the very end, one tedious plot after the next. After I read this I found out that my sister wasn't able to finish it and I asked her why she hadn't warned me!

    When Chaz Perron's wife discovers that he is running a scam (posing as a marine biologist to doctor water samples so that an agribusiness tycoon can continue illegally dumping fertilizer into the Everglades), he pushes her overboard from a cruise liner. Unlucky for Chaz, Joey survives clutching a bale of Jamaican pot. Rescued from the Atlantic by a former police officer, Mick Stranahan, she decides not to report him but instead haunt and taunt him, with Mick's help, by playing dead.

    I loved this book...was a little leary after listening to NNNNN, but was ecstatic that I couldn't stop laughing. I change each disc eagerly waiting to find out what other trouble her bumbling husband could drum up. A definite MUST read!!!

    A smart, deeply satisfying romantic comedy about a woman's obsession with the return of her fiancé's ex. On her way to a simpler life in Washington D.C., Elise, a veteran of New York women's magazine publishing, meets Donald, a reformed investment banker. Donald is perfect in every way - except one: his ex is Elise's worst nightmare.

    This story was a struggle...The storyline drags and I am not really sure that I can feel for the main character. I felt blah listening to her trials and her fiance is a drip. I didn't make it very far into the story because of them. A total snore!!!!!!

    People start dropping dead around Charlie, giant ravens perch on his building, and it seems that everywhere he goes, a dark presence whispers to him from under the streets. Strange names start appearing on his nightstand notepad, and before he knows it, those people end up dead, too. Yup, it seems that Charlie Asher has been recruited for a new job, an unpleasant but utterly necessary one: Death.

    I was so surprised about this book! Didn't know what I was getting into when I first started listening - even thought this is kinda crazy and the character is borderline psychotic, but muddled through the first chapter or so and ended up laughing my way to the end. Charlie's sister is one of my favorite characters, stealing her brother's wardrobe... Also Charlie's daughter is a blast with her "Hellhounds". Have already recommended this book to all my friends and have gone on to read "Lamb" by Christopher Moore as well. Great author...I look forward to reading more from him!

Maura's expecting a straight forward business trip. But what she gets is a whirlwind of mishaps, misunderstandings, rivals and revelations, and Dominic Hanrahan, who's giving her plenty of food for thought.

    I really enjoyed this great comedy of errors. The main character was funny in an unassuming way and really kept you enthralled. Enjoyed this book thoroughly!

    Thirty-four years ago, Violet Sullivan put on her party finery and left for the annual Fourth of July fireworks display. She was never seen again. In the small California town of Serena Station, tongues wagged. Some said she'd run off with a lover. Some said she was murdered by her husband.

    I liked this story. It was fast-paced and kept you guessing as to who the culprit was. I was compelled after listening to this book to read others by the same other and am currently reading R is for Ricochet. Would recommend this book to anyone.
