    New York Times best-selling author Tana French has won the prestigious Edgar, Barry, Macavity, and Anthony awards. As her third novel featuring the Dublin Murder Squad opens, 19-year-old Frank Mackey is waiting in vain for Rosie, who he’s supposed to run away to London with. But when she doesn’t show, Frank leaves Dublin without her—thinking never to return.

    What disappointed you about Faithful Place?

    The love story is appealing, and the mystery is captivating, but the story itself and the dialogue between the characters is never ending. I listened to all of it, but don't see myself recommending this book to anyone. Long after you find out the "who done it" details, the story drones on.


    What was most disappointing about Tana French’s story?

    The details that don't add anything to the story. The constant focus on dysfunction in the family and the inability for the main character to move on.


    What does Tim Gerard Reynolds bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Just the right accent.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment.

    When the family-owned furniture firm, including the mansion where priceless antiques are kept, explodes into flames in the middle of the night, Kate must escape to save her life. But the suspicious circumstances point to her involvement. Was the explosion set deliberately? Why was Kate, a gorgeous CPA for one of the biggest accounting firms in the country, on the premises at that hour? And why was Gus, a retired and trusted employee, with her?

    What disappointed you about Daddy's Gone A Hunting?

    The plot was terrible, a lot of detail in the story line that was repetitive or didn't add anything to the story.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The narrator was fine.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. With this author you normally get lots of twists and turns, as well suspense and intrigue. That was lacking in this book.


    Any additional comments?

    Save your credits, not typical MHC.

    A woman has vanished while digging a dinosaur bone bed in the remote wilderness of Canada. Somehow, the only evidence has made its way to the inbox of Chief Medical Examiner Kay Scarpetta, over 2,000 miles away, in Boston. She has no idea why. But as events unfold with alarming speed, Scarpetta begins to suspect that the paleontologist's disappearance is connected to a series of crimes - much closer to home: a gruesome murder, inexplicable tortures, and trace evidence from the last living creatures of the dinosaur age.

    What disappointed you about The Bone Bed?

    It was long and pointless. I am a long time fan of this series and had to start this book over several times to stay tuned in. I must say it didn't get any better.

    When the body of a young woman is discovered deep beneath the icy waters of Lake Grant, a note left under a rock by the shore points to suicide. But within minutes, it becomes clear that this is no suicide. It's a brutal, cold-blooded murder. All too soon former Grant County medical examiner Sara Linton - home for Thanksgiving after a long absence - finds herself unwittingly drawn into the case.

    Story

    If I could give this review less than 1 star in each of the categories I would. Its long, and tedious, less about the story and mostly about a couple of the characters who are less than interesting. It pretty much led up to nothing. I really can't say that I enjoyed the narration as I thought it was overdone, a LOT.
