    Rachel has always been a good girl--until her 30th birthday, when her best friend Darcy throws her a party. That night, after too many drinks, Rachel ends up in bed with Darcy's fiancé Dex. Rachel is horrified to discover that she has genuine feelings for Dex. She prays for fate to intervene, but when she makes a choice she discovers that the lines between right and wrong are blurry, endings aren't always neat, and you have to risk all to win true happiness.

    The narration by Jennifer Wiltsie is the only thing I enjoyed about this booked. I read this booking thinking that it would explain to me why I would like a character that has an affair with her best friend's fianc??. On the surface this character is not likeable and I thought the book would give her some likeable depth that I could buy in to. It didn't. I hated her more with every chapter and almost stopped listening to the book all together. Rachel whines and complains about being a victim through the entire book. I just felt that if you lie on the floor, you shouldn't complain about being stepped on. Rachel chose her path and could change it but she just blames her unhappiness on Darcy. Plus the writer does everything possible to make sure you dislike the Darcy character; as Darcy is clearly self indulgent and self centered. Then Rachel's friends that are practically gleeful at her betrayal of Darcy mainly because of how Darcy treated Rachel in grade school...COME ON! This book tries to justify deep betrayal with trivial nonsense and it just didn't work for me. Don???t waste a credit on this one; I wish I had read the reviews before I did.

    From internationally best-selling author Alexander McCall Smith comes the seventh novel in the phenomenally popular and endlessly charming series that began with The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency. Once again Botswana's only female detective, Mma Ramotswe, and her invaluable assistant, Mma Makutsi, puzzle out the mysteries of life while finding comfort in steaming mugs of bush tea.

    If you like the series and want to hear more adventures of the characters this is a great continuation. If you are looking for some new and more exciting, it is not in this book. I like series so I plan on reading all the books in it; but as I can tell that it is basically the same story line as the others....I am in no rush.

    City of Fallen Angels take up where City of Glass left off. With Valentine out of the way, Clary thought she and Jace could finally be together--but when someone starts murdering the Shadowhunters who used to be in Valentine's Circle and leaving their bodies around New York City in a manner designed to destroy the new peace between Downworlders and Shadowhunters, she realizes the past can never be left entirely behind.

    Story

    I loved the story. It was a great continuance from the other three books. However, I did not love the switch of the narrators. Ed sounded more like an older experienced man than a teenage boy or girl. Plus he put no effort to changing his tone even a little for the female characters. Most of the time a couldn't distinquish which character was saying what. Then on the other extreme, Molly sounds like a little girl. Plus, she should have at least listened to the other audio books first as she says a lot of the words differently. It took me some time to figure out what she pronounced as "STEELY" was refering to. I loved the story line enough to cringe through it's narration. I hope they reconsider the narration for the next book.

    When Mike Corwin awakens after some wild partying in Vegas $100,000 richer and married to Amber, the gorgeous woman he met the night before, he thinks he's hit the jackpot. The bad news is that Amber's a con who takes his money and runs. Seems the family curse has finally hit him. Hard.

    Overall

    I really liked this book, especially the reading of it. It was almost theatrical enough that I could see this being a movie. If you like the Jane Green books or the shopholic series types, you will love this as it has a slight edgier tale to tell.
