    Internationally best-selling author Francine Rivers—winner of a Christy Award and the ECPA Gold Medallion—crafts a riveting tale of mother/daughter bonds stretching across decades. Strong-willed Marta leaves Switzerland early in the 20th century and settles in California. Though Marta loves her eldest daughter Hildie, they often clash as they attempt to find their places in the world.

    Story
    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The story line was great but I expected there to be more reference to Christian beliefs. Also, the mom is so mean to the daughter that it often is hard to keep listening as you are hoping that will change.

    Although these books are somewhat predictable, there is always a twist and Therese Plummer is my favorite audio author. She captures the characters perfectly every time!

    From the author of the critically acclaimed New York Times best-selling Archie Sheridan/Gretchen Lowell thrillers: The first in a nail-biting new series featuring Kick Lannigan, a young woman whose complicated past has given her a very special skill set. Famously kidnapped at age six, Kick captured America’s hearts when she was rescued five years later.

    Too much detail and not enough action...I do not like books that have too much violence or are too graphic and this one was too much for me.

    In Swimming to Catalina, ex-cop-turned Manhattan attorney and investigator Stone Barrington is back, still smarting from his sudden breakup with brilliant, beautiful magazine writer Arrington Carrington, who has left him to marry Hollywood's hottest male star, Vance Calder. Then Calder calls Stone for help: Arrington has vanished without a trace, and Calder, refusing to call the police, wants Stone to find her.

    What did you like best about At First Sight? What did you like least?

    I liked the way the character kept trying to get to the girl.


    What was most disappointing about Stephen J. Cannell’s story?

    It would have been better to leave out some details (like running over the ex with the car) until later in the book. That would have been more exciting.

    After a shocking loss, Stone Barrington is at loose ends, unsure if he wants to stay in New York and continue his work as a partner at Woodman & Weld. It comes as a welcome relief when he's summoned to Washington, D.C., by President Will Lee. The president has a special operation that calls for Stone's unique skill set, and it's a mission that will reunite him with his former partner in crime and in bed, Holly Barker.

    Where does D.C. Dead rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Stuart Woods is my favorite audio author. I keep trying to branch out to others but love the story lines and the narrator!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Stone and Holly together in the books.


    Which character – as performed by Tony Roberts – was your favorite?

    Dino!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Of course...but didn't get to...

    Dexter Morgan has been under considerable pressure. In trying to avoid the deep suspicions of the dangerous Sergeant Doakes - who believes Dexter is a homicidal maniac (which, of course, he is) - Dexter has had to slip further into his foolproof domestic disguise. While not working as a blood-spatter analyst for the Miami Police Department, he now spends nearly all his time with his girlfriend, Rita, and her two children. But how long can Dexter play Kick the Can instead of Slice the Slasher?

    I couldn't listen to more than a few chapters of this book as the graphic details were too much for me to handle. After talking with friends, I understand this is typical of the Dexter series so I will not be listening to any other Dexter books.

    was a case guaranteed to spark a media feeding frenzy: a young mother, blond and pretty, disappears without a trace from her South Boston home, leaving behind her four-year-old daughter as the only witness and her handsome, secretive husband as the prime suspect. But from the moment Detective Sergeant D. D. Warren arrives at the Joneses - a snug little bungalow, she senses something off about the picture of wholesome normality the couple worked so hard to create.
