    Detective Lindsay Boxer's long-awaited wedding celebration becomes a distant memory when she is called to investigate a horrendous crime: a badly injured teenage girl is left for dead, and her newborn baby is nowhere to be found. Lindsay discovers that not only is there no trace of the criminals - but that the victim may be keeping secrets as well.

    I keep telling myself I am going to stop pruchasing his books because they are just ok and some of them downright bombs. This on was just ok. I guess I keep buying them because I keep hoping for the oId James Patterson. I guess he just keeps popping them out to get as much money as he can before he retires. Dissapointed. I wanted to take one star off but it wouldn't let me. 2 stars!

  • The Fast Metabolism Diet: Eat More Food and Lose More Weight

    Haylie Pomroy has helped thousands of clients lose up to 20 pounds in just 4 weeks - all through the fat-burning power of food. Hailed as "the metabolism guru", Haylie reminds us that food is not the enemy, it’s medicine needed to rev up your sluggish, broken-down metabolism and turn your body into a fat-burning furnace. On this plan you’re going to eat a lot. You’re going to eat three full meals and at least two snacks a day - and you’re still going to lose weight.

    What made the experience of listening to The Fast Metabolism Diet the most enjoyable?

    She is a born motivator. If I had read this book myself I probably would not have tried this diet.


    Any additional comments?

    The only thing I will add to Marcie's review is that I was able to complete this diet with strong difficulty. When you complete it if you return to your old ways the weight will come back but not as fast as other diets. When you make the days I would say don't let yourself stray too far from the plan because I was mislead by the "fixing your metabolism" statement. No more than a week and if you have the willpower, go back to it. It is a very healthy diet but somewhat unrealistic for most to continue as a lifestyle. Her recipes suck! lol! But if you can cook you will figure out how to cook the way you like to eat.

    Jenn Corbin appeared to have it all: two dear little boys, a posh home in one of the upscale suburbs of Atlanta, expensive cars, a plush houseboat, and a husband - Dr. Bart Corbin, a successful dentist - who was tall, handsome, and brilliant. But gradually, their seemingly idyllic life together began to crumble. Bart was distraught and Jenn seemed disenchanted. Then, just a few weeks before Christmas 2004, Jenn was found dead with a bullet in her head, an apparent suicide....

    I kept looking at the title thinking I chose the wrong book because the readers gave it such good reviews. Interesting only because it was a true story but boring in the way that it was told.

    Determined to find out what happened to her former deputy chief, Jack Fielding, murdered six months earlier, Kay Scarpetta travels to the Georgia Prison for Women, where an inmate has information not only on Fielding, but also on a string of grisly killings. The murder of an Atlanta family years ago, a young woman on death row, and the inexplicable deaths of homeless people as far away as California seem unrelated. But Scarpetta discovers connections that compel her to conclude that what she thought ended with Fielding's death and an attempt on her own life is only the beginning....

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It started off well but died in the middle the author just did too much explaining and I kept losing interest.


    Would you recommend Red Mist to your friends? Why or why not?

    No not worth it.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator was fine.


    Do you think Red Mist needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No. The author pretty much explained everything.lol!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Fifteen-year-old Amari witnesses the murder of her family and the destruction of her remote African village. She endures countless humiliations as she is beaten, branded, and forced to board a slave ship. The atrocities continue as she struggles through endless days of backbreaking work and daily degradation on a plantation.

    "Good book."
    Overall

    This was my son's summer reading project. I hate slave books. Although I purchased the book for him, I also let him listen to it because I felt for him. Although we both found the action disturbing, my son came to me on several occasions to discuss this book. He also read along on some parts! It was interesting and the narrator did a great job. The only reason I didn't give it five is because it started off too slow. In the beginning I was ready to turn it off. So bear with her.

  • The Glass Rainbow: A Dave Robicheaux Novel

    Why we think it’s a great listen: When it comes to author/narrator pairings, nobody tops James Lee Burke and Will Patton in the Robicheaux thrillers. Beloved Burke hero Detective Dave Robicheaux here returns to New Iberia to solve a series of grisly murders. Seven young women in neighboring Jefferson Davis Parish have been brutally murdered. While the crimes have all the telltale signs of a serial killer, the death of Bernadette Latiolais, a high-school honor student, doesn’t fit.

    This was a good story. Somewhat predictable but who cares, the narrator and the author were totally connected! Kept me interested from the start.

    Mark Darrow grew up in a small Ohio town with no real advantages beyond his intelligence and athletic ability. But thanks to the intervention of Lionel Farr - a professor at Caldwell, the local college - Darrow became an excellent student and, later, a superb trial lawyer. Now Farr asks his still-youthful protégé for a life-altering favor. An embezzlement scandal has threatened Caldwell's very existence - would Darrow consider becoming its new president?

    With each and every new novel, Dean Koontz raises the stakes, and the pulse rate, higher than any other author. Now, in what may be his most suspenseful and heartfelt novel ever, he brings us the story of an ordinary man whose extraordinary commitment to his wife will take him on a harrowing journey of adventure, sacrifice, and redemption to the mystery of love itself, and to a showdown with the darkness that would destroy it forever.
