    Having been a fan of this actor in "Golden Girls" I thoroughly enjoyed learning more about her life, both past and present. It is funny, inspirational and heartwarming.

    Story

    At the onset of the novel, the author bounces back and forth too much as she introduces the different characters of the story, making it difficult to get a grip of the plot. It drags along for over an hour of listening before the reader actually finds out what crime the main character was accused of committing. However, once at the halfway point, it does pick up enough to hold your interest.

    When college kids hiking near an abandoned military industrial complex in West Virginia mysteriously disappear, special agent Janet Carter - earnest, honest, and fed up with the stifling chauvinistic environment at the Roanoke FBI headquarters - is called in to investigate. Unfortunately, there are no leads - it's as if the three just vanished into thin air.

    This was one terrific book and for anyone who loves their pet, it is a must read. How many times have I talked for my dog or cat ,as if knowing exactly what they are thinking. This novel will go right up there with Dewey the Library Cat and The Art of Racing in the Rain.

    This is a great read for anyone, who likes suspense. I really enjoyed the way the main character gets into a fix, without realizing it, until it is too late and constantly having to use his street smarts to keep from getting caught. With many unexpected events, it definitely kept you on the edge of your seat.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Story

    This was truly an inspirational story and I enjoyed every minute of it. When I finished listening to it, I wanted to find out more about the author and was surprised to learn that the nanny to the author's brother was suing her about being depicted in the book (Abileene). The same theme came up as in the story - - it's only fiction, it's not you. But this individual, as in the story, had some clues to make her believe otherwise. I thought all the characters were beautifully depicted and Aibiliene was my favorite. From my perspective she showed real character, so why the real life individual would want to sue is beyond me.
