    Consequences is a love-story-times-three that opens on the eve of the Second World War, with a chance meeting in St. James' Park, London. Wholly in love, Lorna and Matt leave the city for a cottage in a rural Somerset village. Their intimate life together is shattered when the war begins and by Matt's tragic death in action.

    Would you listen to Consequences again? Why?

    Probably not because I don't listen to many books a second time.


    What other book might you compare Consequences to and why?

    It is much like other books by that author.


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

    She had a gorgeous brit accent ( I love that)!


    Who was the most memorable character of Consequences and why?

    I loved the original love story between Lorna and Matt.

    Jasper Fforde's delightfully zany Thursday Next series shows no signs of slowing down with its seventh entry, The Woman Who Died a Lot. Despite being semihappily semi-retired from SpecOps, Thursday accepts the head librarian position at the Swindon library. But soon threats from a supreme Deity, a mnemonomorph, and the nefarious Goliath corporation press Thursday back into active duty.

    Lenny says: "Great continuation of the Thursday Next series"
    "Always a good read..."

    What made the experience of listening to The Woman Who Died a Lot the most enjoyable?

    I really like the narrator, it's so important that the narrator does a good job.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Well, Thursday Next of course. She's a great detective.


    What about Emily Gray’s performance did you like?

    She does all the voices very well. They're all quite different.

    Story
    (1495)

    After a slow summer of chasing low-level skips for her cousin Vinnie's bail bonds agency, Stephanie Plum finally lands an assignment that could put her checkbook back in the black. Geoffrey Cubbin, facing trial for embezzling millions from Trenton's premier assisted-living facility, has mysteriously vanished from the hospital after an emergency appendectomy. Now it's on Stephanie to track down the con man. Unfortunately, Cubbin has disappeared without a trace, a witness, or his money-hungry wife. Rumors are stirring that he must have had help with the daring escape...or that maybe he never made it out of his room alive.

    G. House Sr. says: "Tedious Formulaic with same-old same-old"
    "As Usual..."

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

    Yes if they were a fan of Stephanie Plum. Not for a 'newby' because those books were better at the beginning of the series.


    What could Janet Evanovich have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    She could get some new ideas !


    Which character – as performed by Lorelei King – was your favorite?

    I liked all the characters; I love that dame ! In a large part I still listen to those books because of her.


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

    YES !

    Born in 1901 in the slums of Brooklyn, Francie Nolan has grown up under the burden of suffering that is the lot of the great city’s poor. Romantic like her father, an Irish singing waiter, yet pragmatic like her mother, a housecleaner and fierce survivor, Francie uses her imagination and tenacity to thrive in the world in spite of these harsh conditions.

    Sara says: "Childhood favorite revisited"
