    Marian Caldwell is a 36-year-old television producer, living her dream in New York City. With a fulfilling career and satisfying relationship, she has convinced everyone, including herself, that her life is just as she wants it to be. But one night, Marian answers a knock on the door ... only to find Kirby Rose, an 18-year-old girl with a key to a past that Marian thought she had sealed off forever. From the moment Kirby appears on her doorstep, Marian’s perfectly constructed world - and her very identity - will be shaken to its core.

    After his December 2003 arrest, registered nurse Charlie Cullen was quickly dubbed "The Angel of Death" by the media. But Cullen was no mercy killer, nor was he a simple monster. He was a favorite son, husband, beloved father, best friend, and celebrated caregiver. Implicated in the deaths of as many as 300 patients, he was also perhaps the most prolific serial killer in American history.

    Sorry... but I should have listened to the sample before ordering this book. In my opinion, this is more like a school report than a good book

    The Goldfinch is a haunted odyssey through present-day America and a drama of enthralling force and acuity. It begins with a boy. Theo Decker, a 13-year-old New Yorker, miraculously survives an accident that kills his mother. Abandoned by his father, Theo is taken in by the family of a wealthy friend. Bewildered by his strange new home on Park Avenue, disturbed by schoolmates who don't know how to talk to him, and tormented above all by his unbearable longing for his mother, he clings to one thing that reminds him of her: a small, mysteriously captivating painting that ultimately draws Theo into the underworld of art.

    Such an amazing talent. When I first saw how long this book was, I admit I hesitated. But it was an incredible journey and I enjoyed every minute. The story was great but the skill with the description of everything-- the story, the characters, the surroundings.....wonderful.

    Twelve miles above the Pacific Ocean, a missile strikes a jumbo passenger jet and leaves the flight crew either crippled or dead. This is the story of how three survivors must achieve the impossible and land the plane. Master storyteller Nelson DeMille and veteran pilot Thomas Block collaborated on Mayday, the most terrifyingly realistic air disaster thriller of all time. Also available abridged.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    New York Times best-selling author Rachel Gibson delivers a sordid and quirky romance. Maddie Dupree's mother was once the other woman in a love triangle with Mick Hennessy's parents. It ended tragically. When Maddie returns to Truly, Wyoming, after a long absence, sparks fly between her and Mick. But can white-hot passion erase their painful family histories?

    This book was very entertaining. I really enjoyed it and didn't want it to
    end. Meg's voice was a little annoying but she is not around too much.
    I will look for more Rachel Gibson books from Audible!

So when she's offered a lucrative weekend gig translating at a business conference in a remote château, she jumps at the chance to shake things up.

    Very mundane. I couldn't wait for it to be over. I'm not sure why I didn't give up on this sooner. It was so predictable this story drove me crazy. Sure glad it wasn't longer.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you’ve ever loved a dog - or even patted a dog - this book, told from the perspective of man’s best friend, will tug at your heartstrings...and won’t let go until long after Welch performs the last word. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.

    Lora says: "Enzo (because he's so wize) for president."

    What made the experience of listening to The Art of Racing in the Rain the most enjoyable?

    At first I thought this one is not for me. I'm sure glad I continued. This is the book
    that comes back to you 25 books later, still thinking about how great it was. Loved it!

    In a New York City fifty years in the future, Detective Eve Dallas tracks down those who break the law - including the ones sworn to uphold it. Eve Dallas and her partner, Peabody, are following up on a brutal, senseless crime - an elderly grocery owner killed by three stoned punks for nothing more than kicks and snacks. And for the first time, Peabody is primary detective on the case, which means she has to get used to a new level of authority and responsibility. Good thing she learned the ropes from a master like Eve. But after rounding up the perps, Peabody stumbles upon a much trickier situation.

    Jean says: "Treachery in Death"
    "Pretty boring"
    Overall

    This is just not my kind of book. The narrator was pretty good but the storyline was so plain and simple. No twists no turns. Very predictable and I didn't like the voice of Peabody. I was sorry I waisted the credit!

    To five-year-old Jack, Room is the entire world. It is where he was born and grew up; it's where he lives with his Ma. Room is home to Jack, but to Ma, it is the prison where Old Nick has held her captive for seven years. Through determination, ingenuity, and fierce motherly love, Ma has created a life for Jack. But she knows it's not enough...not for her or for him. She devises a bold escape plan, but what she does not realize is just how unprepared she is for the plan to actually work.

    Kathleen says: "A truly memorable read"
    "Wow"

    At first I wondered if I would like this book but after the first hour I was hooked.
    Very enjoyable. Thanks
