    Jack and Melissa McGuane have spent years trying to have a baby. Finally their dream has come true with the adoption of their daughter, Angelina. But nine months after bringing her home, they receive a devastating phone call from the adoption agency: Angelina's birth father, a teenager, never signed away his parental rights, and he wants her back.

    Stephanie says: "A struggle to the end."
    "Couldn't stop listening."
    Overall

    As soon as I figured out the story, I didn't want to listen to it, knowing that the subject matter would break my heart. But, I couldn't stop, and the story didn't disappoint. This book was riveting.

Max vows to be Ellie’s shadow until the trial, and it isn’t long before sparks fly....

    John Carr, aka Oliver Stone-once the most skilled assassin his country ever had-stands in Lafayette Park in front of the White House, perhaps for the last time. The president has personally requested that Stone serve his country again on a high-risk, covert mission. Though he's fought for decades to leave his past career behind, Stone has no choice but to say yes. Then Stone's mission changes drastically before it even begins. It's the night of a state dinner honoring the British prime minister.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    What made the experience of listening to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo the most enjoyable?

    All of the foreign names and words spoken with the proper accent and ennunciation.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The girl, of course. She is quite a mystery and a very complex character.


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

    No. It is too long. But I listen to Audible books in the car, and this one was particularly good for a my 700 mile trip.

    It exists at the fringes of Washington, D.C., has no power, and consists solely of four eccentric and downtrodden members whom society has forgotten. Their simple goal is to find the "truth" behind their country's actions.

    Love the character of Oliver Stone, and acts of federal government is so totally believable. Story has a diverse set of characters.

    In the early 1870's, the young state of Texas was struggling to survive. Its vast, undeveloped land of over 260 thousand square miles became a haven for the lawless. Murderers, rustlers and renegade bands of hostile Indians and Comanchero roamed the vast wastelands of west Texas with only a narrow river separating them from the sanctuary of Mexico. One group of dedicated lawmen stood between this element and the law-abiding citizenry - the Texas Rangers. This is the story of one of those men.

    Jean says: "Good western"
    "Great Western"
    Overall

    This was excellent in developing both plot and characters. Gave a real incite into every day life in the 1800's. Great read.

    Russia gains a new tsar, a signal to the world that the imperial Russia is back and plans to have her day. In America, a killer known only as Happy the Baker brutally murders an innocent family and literally flattens the small Midwestern town they once called home. Just a taste, according to the new tsar, of what will happen if America does not back down. Alex Hawke is the only man who can stop the madness.

    Ted Bell writes excellent, fast paced stories that always deliver. This was no exception. Loved both the plot and characters.
