    When Dr. Mike Scanlon is called to serve as an army doctor in Afghanistan, he’s acutely aware of the dangers he’ll face and the hardships it will bring his wife, Chloe, and their newborn baby. And deep inside, he doesn’t think of himself as a hero, but a healer. However, in an ironic turn of events, as Mike operates on a wounded soldier in a war-torn country, Chloe dies at home in the suburbs, in an apparently freak household accident. Devastated, he returns home to bury her, only to discover that the life he left behind has fallen apart.

    Would you try another book from Lisa Scottoline and/or Jeremy Davidson?

    I would be hesitant. I liked Scottoline's early books that stuck to what she knows, i.e., attorneys


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lisa Scottoline again?

    Possibly


    What didn’t you like about Jeremy Davidson’s performance?

    I found many of the voices annoying. The French accent was okay, but the men sounded all the same.


    What character would you cut from Don't Go?

    The story itself is too unbelievable and twisted. The author knows little to nothing about podiatrists and what they can and cannot do. Is this a story about returning vets, or drug addiction or loss of family or family jealousy?


    Any additional comments?

    If you like Scottoline, do not buy this book. It is not the real author!

    New York Times best-selling and Edgar Award-winning author Lisa Scottoline revolutionized crime fiction when she introduced her all-female law firm of Rosato & Associates, thrilling listeners with her twisty, fast-paced plots and capturing their hearts with her cast of strong and relatable female characters. Now Bennie Rosato, Mary DiNunzio, Judy Carrier, and Anne Murphy are back with all cylinders firing in Accused.

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A better story. This is far fetched. The author should keep to things that actually happen in a law practice. The premise is flawed. The characters get annoying after awhile. Murder is okay. Investigation is okay. The child who is the center of this is really a fantasy. The Italian background is okay, but the yelling and screaming, etc has no place. That might be what Italians do, but this is a mystery and is over played and irritating.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not Scottoline. I just downloaded Michael Connelly.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of January LaVoy?

    Her voice is grating especially when she goes Italian


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

    Emesis

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

    The story is okay. Not one of Lescroart's best, but I remained interested.


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

    Nothing special


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Absolutely. If the book had been uninteresting, I would have tossed.


    Did The Hunter inspire you to do anything?

    No.

    From the best-selling author of Think Twice and Look Again comes an emotionally powerful novel about a split-second choice, agonizing consequences, and the need for justice. Rose McKenna volunteers as a lunch mom in her daughter Melly’s school in order to keep an eye on Amanda, a mean girl who’s been bullying her daughter. In the aftermath of a massive explosion, Rose finds herself faced with the horrifying decision of whether or not to rescue Melly or usher Amanda to safety.

    C. Byrnes says: "The Protagonist Was Shallow and Unbelievable"
    "Too long. Not her typical."
    Overall

    This book was hard to finish. Mushy. I will be hesitant to keep this author on my preferred list. It took me weeks to finish. On and on and on. Yuck!
