    Zola Denise Norwood is the hot young editor in chief of Bling Bling magazine. She's at the top of her game, ruling the roost in business as well as the bedroom. Having discovered "the power of three" (not tying herself down to just one guy), Zola surrounds herself with a coterie of men. Still, she dreams of finding true love.

    Overall

    A quick, easy and typically enjoyable E.Lynn Harris write. I am so hoping we haven't heard the last of Raymond and Basil. I never was crazy about Yancey B so I hope she and her Mom have been laid to rest. Crazy people!! Zola and Hayden were fun as were some of the other characters introduced. You know you are into a book when you feel like hugging (Raymond), slapping (Davis), kissing (Basil) or hugging (Hayden) someone! On to Just To Good to be True and then Basketball Jones!!

    Shane Scully and his partner are assigned to the case of "the Fingertip Killer", a serial murderer preying on homeless veterans in Los Angeles. Every two weeks he strikes: he beats his victims, then shoots them in the back of the head. Once they're dead, he cuts off their fingertips, closes their eyes, and tosses them in the river.

    Jerret says: "Above average detective thriller"
    "Can I have some more Scully please..."
    Overall

    Shane Scully solves another one... An interesting read. Lots of twists and turns. Very enjoyable - and as usual, when it was finished, I wished there was just one more chapter.

    Leaving L.A.'s Parker Center, Shane Scully and his wife, Alexa, agree to meet at home in one hour. Shane gets there; Alexa doesn't. In the middle of the night, he's called to a crime scene on Mulholland Drive: The African-American victim, who appears to be a Crip gangbanger, has been executed gangland style. Shockingly, the body is in Alexa's car and her gun is found nearby. But Alexa is missing.

    Lisa says: "Sad it's over"
    "His characters are like family"
    Overall

    Another excellent book by Stephen Cannell. This one I wish I could see on the big screen or as a DVD. The character John Bodine was hilarious. This book confirmed why I love reading books audibly unabridged. There is just no way you can get the appreciation of a character like John Bodine without the right dialect/diction. I got emotional in some parts. Scott Brick is an excellent reader. I highly recommend this book to Scully fans.

    New York Times best-selling author Jodi Picoult is widely acclaimed for her keen insights into the hearts and minds of real people. Now she tells the emotionally riveting story of a family torn apart by conflicting needs and a passionate love that triumphs over human weakness.

    Lisa says: "Wonderful Book, Very Emotional"
    "There is nothing like a sister's love..."
    Overall

    This is an amazing book. I think the reading would be good for teenagers and older. As a mother and having sisters that I am very close too, this story tugged at my heartstrings and yes ... I cried at the end too!

    Life would seem to have gone well for George Mason. His days as a criminal defense lawyer are long behind him. At 59, he has sat as a judge on the Court of Appeals in Kindle County for nearly a decade. Yet, when a disturbing rape case is brought before him, the judge begins to question the very nature of the law and his role within it. What is troubling George Mason so deeply? Is it his wife's recent diagnosis? Or the strange and threatening e-mails he has started to receive?

    Suzn F says: "behind the scenes in the courthouse"
    "Good but too short"
    Overall

    This was a good read. It seemed too short - as if there was a story just on the edge of being told but just not enough time or inspiration. I did enjoy it though as I do most of Scott Turow's writing and would recommend it for someone just finishing a hefty novel and wanting something light before moving onto another big read.

    Tom Dunleavy has a one-man law firm in America's wealthiest resort town: legendary East Hampton. But his job barely keeps him in paper clips. His clients make a living serving the rich. The billionaires and celebrities swarming the beaches already have lawyers on their payroll.

    K. Jacob says: "Why??"
    "An intriguing and exciting listen!"
    Overall

    This book will definetely weed out the James Patterson diehards. If you can get through the first...say 40 chapters...you'll be hooked and won't be able to put this listen down. The most frustrating thing about this book is the number of chapters. Several short chapters in a row have the same title so why not just one big chapter? But once you get used to this it's an easy intriguing listen. Waiting for the verdict had me on pins and needles and I wasn't ready for the ending but once it came it all seemed to make perfect sense but I didn't want it to.
    Another amazing creation from James Patterson. Don't give up on this book or you'll miss some really amazing story telling!

    Working as a lifeguard at a Florida resort, Ned Kelly meets a woman he is wild about, the woman of his dreams. It feels perfect in every way, except that she is used to caviar and Manolo Blahniks, and he is used to burgers and flip-flops. She is a guest at the luxurious hotel, he lives above a garage.

    "I loved it!"
    Overall

    A quick, enjoyable, suspenseful read. I couldn't put this one down. Finished in record time. I loved the storyline, twists and turns. A great book to read in between embarking on a heavier two or three part read. James Patterson continues to impress me.

    I can't remember what made me chose this book. Perhaps I wanted to try out the author. Was just o.k. Seemed to jump around. Thought it was going to get to a point eventually so I read the whole thing but it just never seemed to get there.

    In Shane Scully's most terrifying case to date, two elite SWAT units from the L.A. Sheriff's Department and the ATF appear to be engaged in a deadly midnight war. Officers from both agencies are being sniped at and murdered in vertical coffins. As the violence escalates, the mayor directs the LAPD, the only uninvolved and unbiased law enforcement agency, to investigate. Shane's wife, Alexa, under orders from Chief Tony Filosiani, assigns him to the case.

    Matthew says: "Thrill To The Last Minute"
    "Loved my first taste of Shane Scully"
    Overall

    I couldn't put this one down. I loved the twists, turns and suspense. A wonderful 'read'. I have already downloaded more from Stephen Cannell. I knew I would love him as an author also.

    A woman is found murdered in the woods with a very special watch on her wrist, and what seemed a simple case soon escalates into a nightmare. The criminal methods of some of the most infamous killers of all time are being replicated by a new predator who stalks and strikes victims with a cunning brilliance. No one can understand the murderer's motives or who the next victim will be.

    Patricia says: "Disappointing"
    "An entertaining read!"
    Overall

    This story was so intriguing from beginning to end. Just when you thought you had figured it all out, there was a new, exciting twist. Scott Brick is an amazing narrator and his Southern accent was entertaining. I found myself imitating the accent and enjoying the read even more. This is the first Baldacci novel I have read but can't wait to read more of his work. I loved the main characters esp Michelle and Sean. Please - tell me when the movie is made!
