    A Massachusetts state investigator is called home from Knoxville, Tennessee, where he is completing a course at the National Forensic Academy. His boss is planning to run for governor, and as a showcase she's planning to use a new crime initiative called At Risk; its motto: "Any crime, any time." In particular, she's been looking for a way to employ cutting-edge DNA technology, and she thinks she's found the perfect subject in an unsolved 20-year-old murder-in Tennessee.

    I was excited when I saw Cornwell had started a new series with a new character, but was very disappointed in this book. It does not have the deep or plot that her other books had. The end of the book seemed rushed and was hard to follow. Clearly not up to her standards.

    When Katie appears in the small North Carolina town of Southport, her sudden arrival raises questions about her past. Beautiful yet self-effacing, Katie seems determined to avoid forming personal ties until a series of events draws her into two reluctant relationships: one with Alex, a widowed store owner with a kind heart and two young children; and another with her plainspoken single neighbor, Jo. Despite her reservations, Katie begins to let down her guard, putting down roots in the close-knit community..

    This was a great book to listen to. Suspenful, well writened and had a great ending. I hated for it to end. Nicholas Sparks showed his colors on this one and earns all the credits for being an awesome author.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "The Help"
    Overall

    One of the best books I have listened to this year. The characters are well developed and the pace never slows down. Well written and definitely an author I will follow. I felt like the characters became my friends and I hated to come to the end of this book.

    Fresh from her bruising battle with a psychopath in Florida, Scarpetta decides it's time for a change of pace. Moving to Charleston, South Carolina, she opens a unique private forensic pathology practice, one in which she and her colleagues, including Pete Marino and her niece, Lucy, offer expert crime-scene investigation and autopsy services to communities lacking local access to competent death investigation and modern technology.

    This just was boring. It drug on and on. It is just not the same quality as her first books. I was really disappointed in this one.

    Jodi Picoult delivers the riveting tale of one small town's entanglement with high-school violence.

    New York Superior Court Judge Alex Cormier is assigned to preside over the case of the alleged Sterling High School shooter. Lawyer Jordan McAffee represents Peter, the boy who, on the day of the shooting, was found in the corner of the gymnasium holding a gun to his head with a shaky hand. Detective Patrick DuCharme has one star witness, but her story keeps changing. And then there's the biggest problem of all: the star witness happens to be Judge Cormier's daughter.

    Suze says: "Mesmerizing"

    Overall

    This author really knows how to search out the "soul" in the matter she is writing about. I have now listended to two of her books and can say that her material is well written, and her characters well developed. You will find yourself thinking about these books long afer you have finished listening to them. Her books are consistenly excellent and makes you want to listen to the next one.

    Dean Robillard is the Chicago Stars' hotshot quarterback. Not only does he have lightening reflexes on the field, he is also utterly gorgeous. First seen in the critically acclaimed Match Me If You Can, Dean is trying to recover (both mentally and physically) from a shoulder injury by taking a road trip. Along the way he meets Blue, a beautiful woman down on her luck, and as they spend more time together their attraction grows.

    This was one os ther best books I have ever listed to (I am now up to 218 books). It is so well written, and the characters are so true to life that you feel like you know them. The book is witty and keeps you captivated to the very end. I wanted the book to go on and on and not end. I am now downloading the rest of her books and can not wait to start another one.

    By the time James Frey enters a drug and alcohol treatment facility, he has so thoroughly ravaged his body that the doctors are shocked he is still alive. Inside the clinic, he is surrounded by patients as troubled as he: a judge, a mobster, a former world-champion boxer, and a fragile former prostitute. To James, their friendship and advice seem stronger and truer than the clinic's droning dogma of How to Recover.

    Heath says: "Great Book"

    Overall

    This book is well written and keeps you engaged till the very end. This is not the normal kind of book I read. I selected this book after hearing about it on the Oprah Show and got interested. It is a very moving book about this young man's journey in reclaiming his life. I really admired him and was cheering at the end. This book is very encouraging for all parents who have kids that are doing it "the hard way".

    Clare and Henry have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was thirty-six. They were married when Clare was twenty-three and Henry was thirty-one. Impossible but true, because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he finds himself misplaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity from his life, past and future.

    Boring. I never could get through it. It is a kind of book that you instantly love or instantly start yawning. I started yawning.
