    Loreen Murphy hadn't meant to hire a male prostitute in Las Vegas. It was all just a big, stupid, expensive misunderstanding. Abbey Walsh never intended anyone to find out about the fact that she's being blackmailed. As a minister's wife, her sordid past was supposed to be a secret. Tiffany Vanderslice Dreyer never dreamed that she'd find herself up to her eyeballs in credit card debt from one mad moment of a shopping spree.

    Wrapped up nice and tidy....this is not "deep" listening or a mind-bending story...was predictable, but still enjoyed it for the entertainment if provided.

    Abby Cooper is a P.I., psychic intuitive. But her insight failed her when she didn't foresee the death of one of her clients - or that the lead investigator for the case is the gorgeous blind date she just met. Now, with the police suspicious of her abilities and a killer on the loose, Abby's future looks more uncertain than ever.

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

    First, I must say the narrator is horrible. I agree with one reviewer it was difficult to distinguish between one character or another. Also the random chapter announcements was a bit odd, they seemed to pop up out of no where around chapter 7 and I honestly can't say I remember noticing them before...I wanted to enjoy this, but the title character was so vapid at times and for a person who is supposed to be intuitive she lacks common sense. I think I would have preferred to actually read the book myself and formulate my own vision of this character, but with the poor narration I was waiting for this story to just simply end.

    Waking up in a tacky coffin and wearing off-brand shoes, Betsy Taylor can't believe the horrible turn her life has taken; then she discovers she's a vampire. Soon, Betsy becomes a participant in a power struggle between the forces of darkness. With only her friend Jessica and the hunky vampire Sinclair to help her, this new "Queen of Vampires" will have a tough time getting her afterlife straight.

    Book Professor says: "Such a fun book!"
    "Was pleasantly surprised...."
    Overall

    I actually enjoyed this story. The narrator is not the best, but if you can get past that point, the listening is enjoyable. Good summer read or for light listening.

    Clare and Henry have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was 36. They were married when Clare was 23 and Henry was 31. 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. His disappearances are spontaneous, his experiences unpredictable, alternately harrowing and amusing.

    Scott says: "Epic Drama & Love Story through Time Travel"
    "Read before seeing the movie..."
    Overall

    At first I was not convinced, I actually started over because I felt as if I had missed something or was confused. With further listening, I was sucked into a world that mirrored my own childhood from Claire's perspective and found the love bittersweet. The ending was not as I expected, but does life end as you expected? Worth the read/listen and also worth an open mind. This is not Science-Fiction, Space Alien kind of reading. This is for looking outside of the box at the posibilities and dificulties of love.

    The son of Warcraft and Hate, Cratus spent eternity battling for the ancient gods who birthed him. He was death to any who crossed him. Until the day he laid down his arms and walked into self-imposed exile. Now an ancient enemy has been unleashed and our dreams are his chosen battlefield. The only hope we have is the one god who swears he will never fight again.

    Overall

    I purchased this book this morning in hopes of having something decent to listen to for my day at work. Well I was so turned off by the narration that I actually could not even get through the first hour of this book. Mr. Dufris makes every word sound vulgar and I felt uncomfortable listening to him slaughter this book. I was not expecting stellar writing, but I did want and easy listen and this was anything but. I am tempted to write Audible for a credit refund.

    When a preacher with a message of hope for the homeless is found brutally executed, reporter Cindy Thomas knows the story could be huge. Probing deeper into the victim's history, she discovers he may not have been as saintly as everyone thought...

    JO A MORTON says: "Another Great Read by Patterson!"
    "Not all Bad...but"
    Overall

    I have been a fan of the "Women's Murder Club" series and I also enjoyed the television show (RIP). This was my first audiobook for the series and it was lackluster at best. The voice of the characters was barely discernable from one to another and felt unmotivated. I understand this is fluff writing, but it is enjoyable, but the listening was not what I expected. Needs better phrasing and the pronuciation is too upper-crust for a cop. Better luck next time, but I will by the paper instead.

    Although a year has passed, not a day goes by without Meggie thinking of Inkheart, the book whose characters became real. But for Dustfinger, the fire-eater brought into being from words, the need to return to the tale has become desperate. When he finds a crooked storyteller with the ability to read him back, Dustfinger leaves behind his young apprentice Farid and plunges into the medieval world of his past.

    Vanessa says: "Inkspell indeed"
    "Ummm....."
    Overall

    As many listeners(readers) I was thrilled with the first adaptation. At first listen I was thrown off and my equillibrium took quite some time to recover. Brendan Frasier took some getting used to, but it seemed he caught his stride by the end of the story. I would be careful next time to take a listen before, I buy, but overall, if listening purely for story sake, it was good and I will purchase the next. Just not sure if it will be something I can actually turn the page of or something I can listen too.
