    The crash of a Dallas-bound jet wasn't just a tragedy to TV reporter Avery Daniels; it was an act of fate that handed her a golden opportunity to further her career. Mistaken for a glamorous, selfish woman named Carole Rutledge, the badly injured Avery would find that plastic surgery had given her Carole's face, a famous senatorial candidate for a husband, and a powerful Texas dynasty for in-laws.

    Story
    Would you listen to Mirror Image again? Why?

    I don't know if my heart can take on this story again. My heart literally hurt for the main characters in this book. From the prologue, I was hooked. Could not put this book down. Now that I've completed the book; I'm experiencing withdrawal cravings. I need more from the story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mirror Image?

    There were many. But I'll pick the bathroom scene. When he realized it was not Carol,s body he was looking at.


    What does Dick Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Oh my, Mr. Hill makes me hang on to a story like no other. I feel every emotion, every humour. He brought this story to life for me. I was enthralled with the inflictions in his voice,


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The verbal abuse Avery Daniels endured for love.


    Any additional comments?

    Ms. Brown did it again! Anyone, who enjoys romance, suspense, intrigue would appreciate this book.

    The murder of Paul Wheeler has all the elements of a blockbuster: family rivalries, incalculable wealth, and a prominent man dying in the arms of his beautiful mistress. It's a case that could earn Derek Mitchell even greater star power. When the Wheeler family approaches him about defending Creighton for his uncle's murder -- even before he's charged -- he jumps at the chance.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No. Some of the scene were to gruesome for my taste. They were also drawn out too much for impact.


    What other book might you compare Smash Cut to and why?

    James Patterson's Swimsuit novel about a swimsuit model who was kidnapped. Listened one chapter of that book and returned it to the library.


    What about Victor Slezak’s performance did you like?

    Mr Slezak has a very expressive voice.


    Could you see Smash Cut being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    A TV movie. A Brad Pitt look may portray the main character

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This is a Sandra Brown novel; can't help but read her books. Didn't care for the narrator's voice. Story was predictable.

    Good or bad Sandra's stories are captivating. Even it the story may not have depth, it still enjoyable.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The released from captivity and was in the hotel.


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

    Yes.

    If you could sum up Play Dirty in three words, what would they be?

    You'll get caught.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This story could be a life lesson to many star athletes, corporate executives, anyone in power who are arrogant enough to think they are invincible.


    What does Victor Slezak bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Victor has a very expressive tone to his voice. He kept my attention throughout the book. Sometimes when reading, my mind tends to wonder about place described. With a great narrator, like Victor, they bring the story to life.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "You are not bullet proof"

    Sandra Brown's novels never disappoint.
