    Anne Marie Roche wants to find happiness again.

    On Valentine's Day, Anne Marie and several other widows get together to celebrate...what? Hope, possibility, the future. They each begin a list of 20 wishes. Anne Marie's list starts with "Find one good thing about life". It includes learning to knit, doing good for someone else, falling in love again.

    She begins to act on her wishes, and when she volunteers at a local school, an eight-year-old girl named Ellen enters her life. It's a relationship that becomes far more involving than Anne Marie intended. It also becomes far more important than she ever imagined.

    Jane says: "An uplifting, morale boosting book."
    "Pass if you want substance."
    Overall

    Pathetic, insipid and silly. High school reading.

    An explosion rips through New York City's Grand Central Station one morning, destroying the train Karen Friedman's husband, a successful hedge-fund manager, is riding in to work. On that same day, a suspicious hit-and-run accident leaves a young man dead in Karen's hometown of Greenwich, Connecticut. Ty Hauck, a detective, becomes emotionally caught up in the case and finds a clue that shockingly connects the two seemingly unrelated events.

    Overall

    A fun read - characters and storyline are quickly engaging and enjoyable. Good vacation story.

    Since their mother's death, Tip and Teddy Doyle have been raised by their loving, possessive, and ambitious father. As the former mayor of Boston, Bernard Doyle wants to see his sons in politics, a dream the boys have never shared. But when an argument in a blinding New England snowstorm inadvertently causes an accident that involves a stranger and her child, all Bernard Doyle cares about is his ability to keep his children, all of his children, safe.

    Jeanne says: "Disappointing"
    "Captivating characters"
    Overall

    This is a moving and poignant story that captures a reader and engages you with the characters. Well done.

    Richard Novak is a modern-day Everyman, a middle-aged divorce trading stocks out of his home. He has done such a good job getting his life under control that he needs no one, except his trainer, nutritionist, and housekeeper. He is functionally dead and doesn't even notice until two incidents (an attack of intense pain that lands him in the emergency room and the discovery of an expanding sinkhole outside his house) conspire to hurl him back into the world.

    Patrick OBrien says: "Fun entertaining read/listen"
    "very disappointing"
    Overall

    found this book to be boring and disappointing based on the synopsis

    Agnes Crandall's life goes awry when a dognapper invades her kitchen one night, seriously hampering her attempts to put on a wedding that she's staked her entire net worth on. Then a hero climbs through her bedroom window. His name is Shane - no last name, just Shane - and he has his own problems.

    Sharon11675 says: "Ditzy Agnes?"
    "Absolutely Delicious!"
    Overall

    One of the most thoroughly engaging and humorous books I have read in ages. Set in the South, this story takes place in just a few days time, as a wedding extraordinaire is about to be sabotaged by the most devious, malicious, manipulative little bombshell of a Southern Belle done wrong. Throw in some G-Men, mobsters and a heroine with guts and you have a wonderful ensemble of colorful, quirky characters that are the most entertaining group of nut-jobs you could want. I found this reminiscent of an Elmore Leonard tale and would have to say that reading Agnes and the Hitman was just an absolute romp!
