    Darcy Rhone thought she had it all figured out: the more beautiful the girl, the more charmed her life. Never mind substance. Never mind playing by the rules. Never mind karma.But Darcy’s neat, perfect world turns upside down when her best friend, Rachel, the plain-Jane “good girl,” steals her fiancé, while Darcy finds herself completely alone for the first time in her life… with a baby on the way.

    If you could sum up Something Blue in three words, what would they be?

    I normally like series of books but was hesitant to listen to this one as the person I thought was the main character in the first book was not the main character in this book.

    I was pleasantly surprised with the book even though you knew the ending almost right from the start.

    Wouldn't be a book to read again but it was a nice listen.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I wouldn't make this a film.

    Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. "Jess and Jason," she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost. And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good? Compulsively readable, The Girl on the Train is an emotionally immersive, Hitchcockian thriller and an electrifying debut.

    Where does The Girl on the Train rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I really enjoyed this book once it got going. It was a little slow at first and the accents were a little off putting. The story itself had you wondering which part was real, which part is her imagination and which part is misrepresented by her view.

    When her ex-husband, Jack, is accused of murdering Becky's first post-divorce date, the Bad Mothers set out to prove his innocence, but only for the sake of her children. These Bad Mothers have faced everything from terrible twos and sleep deprivation to rebellious teens and heartbreak - they're not about to let a mere murderer stop them from winning the Worst Mother of the Month award.

    What did you love best about Murder Is Misunderstood?

    I likes the whole series idea. A bad mother's club in the very best way possible.


    What other book might you compare Murder Is Misunderstood to and why?

    The Housewife's Assassin Handbook is similar but a little more explicit.


    Any additional comments?

    Why don't you have the rest of the series in Audio? I hate getting a first one and liking it to only be shut out of the series.

    Every desperate housewife wants an alias. Donna Stone has one - and it happens to be government-sanctioned. But Donna earned it the hard way: Her husband was killed the day she delivered their third child. To avenge her husband's murder, Donna leads a secret life as an assassin. But espionage makes for strange bedfellows, and brings new meaning to that old adage, "Honey, I'm home...."

    Would you listen to The Housewife Assassin's Handbook again? Why?

    I wasn't sure how this book was going to be. Campy? Silly? Interesting? I found it to be a little of those but mostly interesting. I am a little disturbed that this author is on book 10 in this series and yet there is only one done on Audio. This is the perfect kind of story while driving. You don't have to pay super attention to details to get the story.

    You know Judy Greer, right? Wait, what was she in again? The Wedding Planner, 13 Going on 30, 27 Dresses, The Descendants. Yes, you totally recognize her. And, odds are, if you're like most women in America, you feel like she's already your friend. Thankfully, Greer has finally written a book of essays about all the moments, topics, observations, and confessions that you would hope to hear from your best friend.

  • Good Manners for Nice People Who Sometimes Say F*ck

    We live in a world that's very different from the one in which Emily Post came of age. Many of us who are nice (but who also sometimes say "f*ck") are frequently at a loss for guidelines about how to be a good person who deals effectively with the onslaught of rudeness we all encounter. To lead us through this this miasma of modern manners, syndicated columnist Amy Alkon - The Advice Goddess - gives us a new set of manners for our 21st-century lives.

    G. House Sr. says: "Hilarious and a Direct Hit - Must Listen"
    "Don't judge a book by it's cover OR title."

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

    A different narrator would have helped.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something in the mystery section.


    Any additional comments?

    The title is the reason I bought this one. It started out funny and actually made me laugh while driving. After about 30 minutes, I was over it. I should have returned it.

    From the author who brought us the unforgettable Waverly Bryson and the best-selling Perfect on Paper series. Best-selling author Cassidy Lane walks into her 20th high school reunion with several novels under her belt, but no date on her arm, and deep down she still feels like the smart girl no one asked to the prom. Then handsome Brandon Forrester confesses his teenage crush, and soon Cassidy finds herself swept up in a modern-day fairytale romance not unlike the tales she spins for a living.

    What did you love best about Cassidy Lane?

    This was a fun book to listen to. The main character was flawed and so were her friends.


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

    No. I like to listen to books going to and from work each day.


    Any additional comments?

    I have either read or listened to a number of books by this author and enjoyed this book.
