    Corinna Chapman likes the quiet life: good food, good company, and her daily work as a baker. She doesn't really want mystery and intrigue in her life. Unfortunately for her, she doesn't have much choice. Corinna's apartment building seems to be a magnet for mystery and mayhem and, with her new lover, Daniel, a private investigator, Corinna seems destined to be involved in solving these mysteries.

    Sires says: "Second Outing for Corinna Chapman"
    "Not for me"
    Overall

    Very hard to follow.Just has nothing of content to hold a listener. I had to stop the book after a few chapters. A waste of my time.

    When Rob Hale wakes up in hospital after a motorcycle crash, he is told that Lena - the gorgeous blonde woman who was on the back of his bike - doesn't exist. The woman he describes bears a striking resemblance to his recently deceased sister, Laura, but has he really only imagined her? Convinced that Lena is as real as he is, Rob teams up with Rebecca Lewis - a London-based PI who has a mysterious connection to Laura - to follow the clues. He learns that even a close-knit community like the Isle of Man can hide dangerous secrets that will not stay safe forever.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Some books are meant to be read; others are meant to be heard – Water for Elephants falls into the second group, and is one of the best examples we have of how a powerful performance enhances a great story. Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days with a circus. It's the Depression Era and Jacob, finding himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.

    Would you listen to Water for Elephants again? Why?

    To see if I missed anything first time.


    What about David LeDoux and John Randolph Jones ’s performance did you like?

    Very Good!


    If you could take any character from Water for Elephants out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    The fellow with the dog, he seemed to have more to offer in the story.

    Best-selling author Christopher Fowler has won a widespread following for his senior citizen detectives Arthur Bryant and John May. Here a woman is found drowned in her basement - with nary a drop of water to explain the crime.

    Cholmondeley says: "Baby Boomers Rejoice: This is a book for our time."
    "Difficult"
    Overall

    Very hard to follow. I am sorry I spent any time or money on this.
