    When private detective Dana Cutler is hired by an attorney with powerful political connections, the assignment seems simple enough: follow a pretty college student named Charlotte Walsh and report on where she goes and whom she sees. But then the unexpected happens.

    Lu says: "Entertaining"
    ""Executive Privilege""
    Overall

    The author keeps one in suspense throughout the novel with lots of twists and turns in this "who done it". I never read any of the author's other works as either a hard cover novel or audiobook but recommend this one. The book story flows very well.

    Jamie Fraser knows from his time-traveling wife Claire that, no matter how unlikely it seems, America will win the Revolutionary War. But that truth offers little solace, since Jamie realizes he might find himself pointing a weapon directly at his own son - a young officer in the British army. And Jamie isn't the only one with a tormented soul - for Claire may know who wins the conflict, but she certainly doesn't know whether or not her beloved Jamie survives.

    Charles says: "Read all of Gabaldon's stuff before this one"
    "An Echo in the Bone"
    Overall

    DG engaged us more in American history and less in the character development of existing ones much to the distress of the story. DG could have reduced the historical events to minimal and more on characters. There is less on Jamie and Claire than I desired. The author does establish continuation of the family story by events to Bree and Roger for future books.

    When newswoman Britt Shelley wakes up in bed with the handsome and hard-partying Jay Burgess, a rising star detective in the Charleston PD, she remembers nothing of how she got there...or of how Jay wound up dead.

    Kathy says: "Well crafted"
    "Smoke Screen"
    Overall

    The author outdoes herself for the most part as a story. However, It takes at least 7 hours to discover the plotand wonder who is blackmailing the main character. Needs to move a little faster.

    New York Times best-selling author Diana Gabaldon enchanted scores of fans with Outlander, her electrifying historical saga set in 18th-century Scotland. Now this sequel sweeps listeners back into the past as Claire relates more of her perilous sojourn there with her Scottish warrior husband, James Fraser. Twenty years after her strange journey back in time, Claire has returned to Scotland with her daughter, determined to share with her the secret she has harbored since her time travel.

    Shelley says: "I ADORE this series!"
    "Dragonfly in Amber"
    Overall

    Diana Gabaldon succeeds in her writing of the second book. The author keeps one in suspence at each chapter. There are no novels that compare with this one.

    Jack McClure lost his daughter. Now it's his job to make sure the president-elect doesn't lose his. A new administration is on its way in, but the president has a few power moves left to see his legacy solidified. Moderate conservative Edward Carson is taking the reins, hoping to set America on a new course. But weeks before Inauguration Day, Carson's daughter, Alli, goes missing from her college dormitory.

    Steve says: "Not worth the read"

    I had to re-play/hear the book for the flow and theme.

    Dupont University: the Olympian halls of learning housing the cream of America's youth, the roseate Gothic spires and manicured lawns suffused with tradition....Or so it appears to beautiful, brilliant Charlotte Simmons, a sheltered freshman from North Carolina, who has come here on full scholarship. But Charlotte soon learns, to her mounting dismay, that for the upper-crust coeds of Dupont, sex, Cool, and kegs trump academic achievement every time.

    Eric says: "Decadence through the eyes of a ?good girl?"
    "I am Charlotte Simmons (Unabridged)"
    Overall

    I found this audiobook insulting in that the "f..." word was used frequently for the characters (teenagers)to make a point. This is not necessary and I would not recommend the story to anyone based on this type of language. Should the author had changed this to other ways of communicating his/her ideas that would be great. I really do not feel that I benefited from what I did hear. I feel I should be given another credit for another book as I wasted my time and cds.

    English magicians were once the wonder of the known world, with fairy servants at their beck and call; they could command winds, mountains, and woods. But by the early 1800s they have long since lost the ability to perform magic. They can only write long, dull papers about it, while fairy servants are nothing but a fading memory.

    David says: "Hang in there!"
    "Jonathan Strabge and Mr. Norrell"
    Overall

    Would never recommend this as I found it very hard to get into and never finished listening to it.
