    To most people, Fiona Bristow seems to have an idyllic life — a quaint house on an island off Seattle’s coast, a thriving dog-training school, and a challenging volunteer job performing canine search and rescue. Not to mention her three intensely loyal Labs. But Fiona got to this point by surviving a nightmare.

    Overall

    I also bought this book on sale. I usually find Nora Roberts pretty easy reading but this book was/is (because I don't think I can even bother to finish it) pretty awful. The characters are dull; the narration is boring and even though I love dogs, I was bored to death.

    It is 1539, and the court of Henry VIII is increasingly fearful at the moods of the ageing, sickly king. With only a baby in the cradle for an heir, Henry has to take another wife. The dangerous prize of the crown of England is won by Anne of Cleves, who has her own reasons for agreeing to marry a man old enough to be her father. Although fascinated by the glamour of her new surroundings, Anne senses a trap closing around her.

    Caroline says: "I'm glad I downloaded it!"
    "Excellent"
    Overall

    I have read many versions of the life and loves of Henry VIII and I can honestly say, I enjoyed the Boleyn Inheritance more than most. The narrators were wonderful and the girl portraying Katherine Howard was excellent. She did a marvellous job portraying just how silly and immature the poor girl was. I laughed at her many antics and couldn't help but feel sorry for her unfortunate end at such a young age.
    This is the first Philippa Gregory I have read but it won't be the last. She has just joined my list of 'must reads' I can thoroughy recommend this book.

    When beautiful debutante Cathryn Brocklehurst meets dashing aristocrat Nicolas Abingdon, it is love at first sight, even though he is some 20 years older than her. Cathryn’s parents are vehemently against the match, for Nicholas has been married before. The besotted couple defy parental opposition and society’s disapproving whispers to wed, but their happiness is short-lived.

    Overall

    I found this book to be a very easy listen and I enjoyed the storyline - somewhat predictable but still a good "read" on a rainy day. I also loved the voice of the narrator and think she did a great job with all the different characters. I will look for more books by this author.

    Lisbeth Salander lies in Intensive Care with a bullet lodged in her head. She will face trial for three murders and one attempted murder on her release. With the help of journalist Mikael Blomkvist, Salander must not only prove her innocence, but identify and denounce the corrupt politicians that have allowed the vulnerable to become victims of abuse and violence. Salander is now ready to fight back.

    Olga says: "A Fabulous Finale"
    "spellbinding"
    Overall

    I have finished listening to Stieg Larsson's trilogy and am sorry to have it end. I don't know when I have enjoyed a book(s) so much. If only we could look forward to future writings by this author and the narrator, Saul Reichlin, was absolutely fantastic. All in all a wonderful "listen" and I think, after a while, I may re-read all three.

    Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared from a family gathering. Her body was never found, yet her uncle is convinced it was murder - and that the killer is a member of his own family. He employs journalist Mikael Blomkvist and the tattooed, truculent computer hacker Lisbeth Salander to investigate. When the pair link Harriet's disappearance to a number of grotesque murders from forty years ago, they begin to unravel a dark and appalling family history.

    Joe says: "worthwhile"
    "Great Listening"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book; loved the narration and was sorry to have it end. I can hardly wait to read the next one and see what else the characters have in store for us.
