  • U Is for Undertow: A Kinsey Millhone Mystery

    It's April, 1988, a month before Kinsey Millhone's 38th birthday, and she's alone in her office doing paperwork when a young man arrives unannounced. He has a preppy air about him and looks as if he'd be carded if he tried to buy booze, but Michael Sutton is 27, an unemployed college dropout. Twenty-one years earlier, a four-year-old girl disappeared, and a recent reference to her kidnapping has triggered a flood of memories.

    "Best Narration"
    Overall

    The book was very good and kept my interest but the very best is the narration. The narrator didn't try to do a different voice for each character which can sometimes be very annoying. I would definitely like to listen to books read by Judy Kaye.

  • The Pride of Jared MacKade: The MacKade Brothers, Book 2

    Jared MacKade believes in taking a stand, and he never turns his back on a fight. So when his work as an attorney brings him up against Savannah Morningstar, her rude behavior and strong defenses aren't nearly enough to scare him off - quite the opposite. Thoughts of the outrageously direct and sinfully sexy woman keep Jared coming back for more. And the more he gets to know her, the more determined he is to stand by her always.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    someone who isn't bothered by the anger


    Would you ever listen to anything by Nora Roberts again?

    yes


    What character would you cut from The Pride of Jared MacKade?

    the male attitude


    Any additional comments?

    I am not sure if my dislike of the series is the story or the narrator. I felt the narrator put too much anger into the characters. I felt very tense and upset listening to the anger and yelling. I wont be listening to the other two book. I thought maybe I was too critical on the first book but after the second book I am done.

    The cloistered grounds of the convent have traditionally represented a place of faith and peace. Now, that peace is shattered as two nuns are found, one dead, one mortally wounded. The killings appear to be without motive, without an obvious suspect, and are further complicated by the murder and mutilation of a third woman. Together, medical examiner Maura Isles and intense, moody homicide detective Jane Rizzoli uncover an ancient horror that connects these terrible slaughters.

    Did Anna Fields do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    She did a great job with all the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    Anna's pronunciation of Rizzoli has a "t" in it. It is not Ritzoli!

    It is a boiling summer in Boston. Adding to the city's woes is a series of shocking crimes that end in abduction and death. The pattern suggests one man: "The Surgeon," serial killer Warren Hoyt, known for his partial dissection of his victims, and recently thrown behind bars. Police can only assume an acolyte is at large, a maniac basing his attacks on the twisted medical techniques of the madman he so admires.

    Mary S. Murray says: "Good Read"
    "Another Ritzoli book"

    What did you love best about The Apprentice?

    I love the series!


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The name is Rizzoli. There is no "t" in it and yet the narrator continually pronounces it with a "t". Quite annoying.

    Returning home from a trip to Paris, Boston medical examiner Maura Isles confronts a nightmarish scene. Police cruisers line her street and slumped in a car at the end of Maura's driveway is a dead woman, her head bloodied by a gunshot wound. Cops and neighbors gape at her as she approaches. Only when Maura looks at the victim does she understand why everyone is so shocked by her arrival. The dead woman looks exactly like Maura.

    Where does Body Double rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I totally enjoy the series and look forward to more of them.


    What three words best describe Kathe Mazur’s performance?

    She was fine except there is no "t" in Rizzoli. She pronounces it Ritzoli and that was quite annoying. Otherwise she did a great job!
