    Rumor has it that a collection of priceless ancient relics representing the Seven Deadly Sins have made their way to Boston’s North Shore. Partnered with pastry chef Lizzie Tucker, Diesel bullies and charms his way through historic Salem to track them down - and his mastermind cousin Gerewulf Grimorie. The black-haired, black-hearted Wulf is on the hunt for the relic representing gluttony. Now in a race against time, the pair soon finds out that more isn’t always better, as they battle Wulf and the first of the deadly sins.

    Good example of Evanovich humor with light romanctic undertones. Good to listen to while working. Fun, fabulous, loved it.

    For a thousand years the ash fell and no flowers bloomed. For a thousand years the Skaa slaved in misery and lived in fear. For a thousand years the Lord Ruler, the "Sliver of Infinity," reigned with absolute power and ultimate terror, divinely invincible. Then, when hope was so long lost that not even its memory remained, a terribly scarred, heart-broken half-Skaa rediscovered it in the depths of the Lord Ruler's most hellish prison.

    The Neptune Grand has always been the seaside town's ritziest hotel, despite the shady dealings and high-profile scandals that seem to follow its elite guests. When a woman claims that she was brutally assaulted in one of its rooms and left for dead by a staff member, the owners know that they have a potential powder keg on their hands. They turn to Veronica to disprove - or prove - the woman's story.

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

    Don't miss it!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Completely. It's obvious why this became a movie. Suspensful, sassy, with a good story line. Lots of characters, so keep up. Can't put it down, once you start. Don't suggest operating heavy machinery, you may become distracted. Strong and constant story .


    What does David Colacci bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Not just a reader, he influences your opinion of the character with diverse voices and inflections. A+


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Epiloge.


    Any additional comments?

    Worth the credit.

    What did you love best about The Villa?

    Greatly appreciate the varied locations and detailed of the storyline. Characters strong and believable. A story that could happen. Nora Roberts proves she can come up with something new.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sophie. Strong, indepedant, but human.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene when teens acted and talked like true teens. You know Nora has been around teens herself. Real, yet still funny.

    Slade McCafferty was a bachelor through and through - too busy raising hell to settle down. Case in point: fifteen years ago daredevil Slade had taken wild child Jamie Parsons’s innocence, and then had broken her heart. But Jamie is back in town, a lawyer, all confidence and polished professionalism. And seeing her again is setting off a tidal wave of emotions Slade thought he’d dammed up ages ago. Back then, as now, there’d been something about Jamie that made Slade ache for more. A hell of a lot more…

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

    A re-released book. Should have stayed in archive. Don't waste the hours or credits. Shallow characters, unbelievalbly repetative, a book of feelings with little action. If you enjoy listening to a character argue with herself, immaturely act like a stubborn 4 year old and whine about already stated feelings; this is for you. Felt like hours of someone's therapy session with a commercial hint of skeletal storyline playing in the background. Don't recommend this book, maybe her others a better, this one simply feels like the editor forgot to read it.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lisa Jackson again?

    Never.


    What three words best describe Amy McFadden’s performance?

    Good Performance.


    What character would you cut from Disclosure?

    Burn the whole book.


    Any additional comments?

    Audible, you need to stop taking money for one.

    LAPD cop Scott James is not doing so well, not since a shocking nighttime assault by unidentified men killed his partner, Stephanie, nearly killed him, and left him enraged, ashamed, and ready to explode. He is unfit for duty - until he meets his new partner. Maggie is not doing so well, either. The German shepherd survived three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan sniffing explosives before she lost her handler to an IED and sniper attack, and her PTSD is as bad as Scott’s. They are each other’s last chance.

    Known for making up his own rules of right and wrong, Texas Ranger Sam "Wildcard" MacGregor takes what he wants when he wants it, especially when it comes to women. But seduction is the last thing on his mind the moment he stumbles across an Hispanic beauty crouching in fear beside a burned-out wagon.

    Cheryl says: "These books are really good Westerns"
    "Disappointment Sequal"
    Overall

    A disappointment sequal to the first book of the Hell's 8. Narrator lacks emotion and connection with the story and it's characters. A rather flat production. The writing is surprisingly unsimilar to that of the first book, lacking in excitement and depth.

    Carlotta Wren has always dreamed of taking a vacation from her life as daughter to fugitive parents and mother to her younger brother, Wesley. So when she gets an invitation from hunky body mover Cooper Craft to ride to Florida for some fun in the sun and a VIP body pickup, it seems like a good idea. But then they're greeted on arrival by three different men, each one laying claim to the celebutante's body they've been hired to move.

    Deborah says: "Delicious little romantic mystery series"
    "MORE EXCITEMENT & INJURIES"
    Overall

    Enjoy the Carlotta and Wesley drama. Wesley again cant seem to make a good decision to save his life. Carlotta just needs to fish or cut bait with the 3 men in her life.

    Carlotta Wren's life hasn't turned out as she planned. She didn't plan for her parents to skip bail for a white-collar crime, leaving her to raise her brother. She didn't plan on her blue-blood fiance dumping her. And she didn't plan on still being single 10 years later, working at Neiman Marcus, with no idea where her fugitive parents are. Until her lovable brother is arrested, and the hunky cop decides to reopen her parents' case.

    Corie says: "Makes me want to change my job."
    "MYSTERY-SUSPENSE & A BIT OF ROMANCE"
    Overall

    CAROLTTA AND HER FAMILY GIVE A GOOD STAGE FOR INTERACTION WITH DANGER AND MYSTERY. THE CHARACTERS ARE REALISTIC AND EXCITING
