    Blair Mallory lives the good life. She's pretty, confident, and the owner of a thriving upscale fitness center. But in the shadow of success, a troubled member of the club develops a strange fixation on her, imitating her style and dress. Matters take a darker turn when the look-alike is shot dead - and Blair witnesses the horror.

    Story

    My review follows many of my fellow listeners, good book but bad narration. I found Blair to be a very refreshing character in the book, a true southern bell and her relationship with Wyatt was more believable then some other books. However I did not enjoy Franette Liebow’s voice in this book... I got used to it after a while of listening but each time I stopped and then listened to the book later I had to get re-used to it again her southern accent seemed really fake to me and not believable. But overall I'd say give it a try...

    When Brittany Ellis walks into chemistry class on the first day of senior year, she has no clue that her carefully created perfect life is about to unravel before her eyes. She's forced to be lab partners with Alex Fuentes, a gang member from the other side of town, and he is about to threaten everything she's worked so hard for her flawless reputation, her relationship with her boyfriend, and the secret that her home life is anything but perfect.

    Leslie says: "Perfect Chemisty has perfect chemistry."

    Story

    I love this book. I love the bad boy Alex and Brittney's romance, it goes to show you that you never know who is right for you. I was older when I listen to this (did it to see if it was a good book for a younger cousin) and I felt it was good for a high level high schooler which is what the age of the characters are and above because I've been out of high school for a while and still loved it! It follows true problems, how to be yourself and not what others except of you, the troubles with parents and a disabled sister, also when/who to give "it" to.
    I love the two sided narration of the book and how Elkeles wrote it both view points of the characters makes it very enjoyable. Female narrator I didn't like as much which is why I gave the performance a 2 out of 5.

    Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    Story

    I was unsure if I was going to like 'The Witness' so I put it in my wish list and waited, it went on sale and I decide to give it a try and I'm glad I did. I like the how the story started a girl that had only one act of rebellion and it all goes wrong... Nora keep me going wasn't tons of suspense but I enjoyed listening

    What did you love best about I Can See You?

    as always I love how all of Karen's book characters intertwine and finally we see Eve's life


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes for the most part, the twist into the book and how multiple stories all came together in the end.


    Any additional comments?

    Poor Eve she's had a rough go of it in Karen's book... give her a rest and let her have a normal life like I think David said "third times a charm" let's keep it that way...
