    John Carr, aka Oliver Stone-once the most skilled assassin his country ever had-stands in Lafayette Park in front of the White House, perhaps for the last time. The president has personally requested that Stone serve his country again on a high-risk, covert mission. Though he's fought for decades to leave his past career behind, Stone has no choice but to say yes. Then Stone's mission changes drastically before it even begins. It's the night of a state dinner honoring the British prime minister.

    Story

    I love John Carr the character, but he dissappointed me a bit in this story. Maybe he is getting a bit long in the tooth to be as much fun to read/listen to. The story was interesting but a bit too convoluted for me. I didn't particularly like the characters except or course for the basic Oliver Stone gang.

    Nothing can mend a broken heart quite like family. Sherry has struggled all her life to understand who she is, where she comes from, and, most important, why her mother slapped her cheek one summer afternoon. The incident has haunted Sherry, and it causes her to dig into her family's past. Like many family histories, it is fractured and stubbornly reluctant to reveal its secrets. But Sherry is determined to know the full story. In a few days' time, her extended family will gather for a reunion, and Sherry sets off across the country with her mother, Dumpling, to join them.

    Brenda says: "Richly textured and captivating"

    Story

    Stayed up late to listen to the end. Spent the hours learning to love this family. I cried with them, laughed with then. The author came as close as I've ever come to understand the strenth of family and the strengh of character it takes to overcome fractures and become whole.

    I will look for other writings by Ms McFaddon and I would be willing to listen to Robin Miles anytime!

    With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland. County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors’ blood and magic have flowed through generations - and where her destiny awaits.

    Hate the performance. Felt I was 12 years old listening to it. Normally enjoy Nora Roberts but this story and especially the performance were not up to par.

    Eve Dallas is the tough lieutenant hot on his trail, but this is unlike any case she’s ever been assigned - or any killer she’s ever pursued. A police sketch based on eye-witness testimony reveals the killer has green skin, swollen red eyes, goblin ears, and a dislocated jaw-structure that defies the human form. Is it a mask? Is it make-up? Or is the explanation more sinister? Dallas faces off against multiple suspects - all of them students of medicine capable of precisely slicing the ears, noses, and eyes of the three victims.

    Story

    I have in the past, read J. D. Robb and thus had a clear mental picture of how the characters would speak and the emotions they shared or chose not to share. I regret to say my mental picture in no way matched the narration. Sorry Ms. King, I did not enjoy your performance. I will need to continue reading J. D. Robb on my own.

    Craig Johnson’s rough-and-tumble hero Walt Longmire is quickly becoming a fan-favorite and a critical success. Here Walt has his hands full as greedy land developers employ shady, violent methods to reverse their fortunes in recession-racked Wyoming.

    Story

    There are two parts of the story that I laughed until I cried. Mostly charming sometimes hysterically funny, and a decent story to go with it all. I still have a problem matching Craig Johnson's voice to my vision of The Sherriff, but getting there. His interpretation of everyone else is spot on as far as I am concerned.

    When the Lusitania sank, more than one 1,000 people died. One passenger, however, survived to become a changed man, giving up his life as a petty thief but keeping a small silver statue that would become a family heirloom to future generations. Now, nearly a century later, that heirloom, one of a priceless, long-separated set of three, has been snatched away from the Sullivans.

    Enjoyed the story. Norah Roberts always entertains. The narrator, Bernadelle Quigley was wonderful. I could listen to her all day. In fact I'm going to listen again just to hear the Irish. A lovely cast of characters.

    A great escape writer. I enjoyed the story and the performance. 5 Star because it was a story that kept my interest and had a good ending. Sometimes that's all I want and this book delivered just that.
