    Alex Nolan is as bitter and cynical as they come. One of three Nolan brothers who call Friday Harbor home, he’s nothing like Sam or Mark. They actually believe in love; they think the risk of pain is worth the chance of happiness. But Alex battles his demons with the help of a whiskey bottle, and he lives in his own private hell. And then a ghost shows up. Only Alex can see him. Has Alex finally crossed over the threshold to insanity? Zoë Hoffman is as gentle and romantic as they come. When she meets Alex, all her instincts tell her to run.

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

    I enjoyed the 1st two books in the trilogy but this latest installment was disappointing. All of the likeable and charming characters from the first two books are missing from the last of this trilogy. We are left with a fairly unlikeable hero whose redemption is rather unbelievable yet predictable. The heroine, a pathetic Marilyn Monroe wannabe never inspires interest or admiration. The ghost subplot was grating and predictable and Alex's resurrection from death ridiculous. But the worst thing about this audio book was the performance. When simply narrating, Jeff Cummings was pretty good. But he is no voice actor. His female characters were painfully bad and his male characters almost as terrible. I had to force myself to listen to the whole book.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jeff Cummings’s performances?

    No!!


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.

    Ann Silver is a cop’s cop. As the Midwest Homicide Investigator, she is called in to help local law enforcement on the worst of cases, looking for answers to murder. Hers is one of the region’s most trusted investigative positions. Paul Falcon is the FBI’s top murder cop in the Midwest. If the victim carried a federal badge or had a security clearance, odds are good Paul and his team see the case file or work the murder. Their lives intersect when Ann arrives to pass a case off her desk and onto his.

    What disappointed you about Full Disclosure?

    This is Christian fiction. This is not just a mystery/romance. If you're not into devotional and Christian proseletizing don't buy. I am not and as soon as the FBI agent/hero started talking to Jesus I deleted it. If you like that kind of literature you would probably love this.


    What was most disappointing about Dee Henderson’s story?

    As I said in the body of my review, this is Christian fiction mis-described as mystery and romance.


    Would you be willing to try another one of David de Vries’s performances?

    It was o.k. though not great.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Total disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    I want my money back.
