    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    No one else could have read it! Great book - great delivery. I wanted more.

    Making a living reproducing famous artworks for a popular online retailer and desperate to improve her situation, Claire is lured into a Faustian bargain with Aiden Markel, a powerful gallery owner. She agrees to forge a painting - a Degas masterpiece stolen from the Gardner Museum - in exchange for a one-woman show in his renowned gallery. But when that very same long-missing Degas painting is delivered to Claire's studio, she begins to suspect that it may itself be a forgery. Her desperate search for the truth leads Claire into a labyrinth of deceit where secrets hidden since the late 19th century may be the only evidence that can now save her life.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes! And I have. Great story on so many levels. You get an understanding of painting, the gallery/art world politics, a who-done-it and a love story all rolled into this "can't put down" book.

  • The Last Lion: Winston Spencer Churchill, Volume I: Visions of Glory 1874-1932

    Winston Churchill is perhaps the most important political figure of the 20th century. His great oratory and leadership during the Second World War were only part of his huge breadth of experience and achievement. Studying his life is a fascinating way to imbibe the history of his era and gain insight into key events that have shaped our time.

    Wolfpacker says: "Superb - Review of Both Volume I & Volume II"
    "What possessed me?"
    Overall

    What possessed me to get this book? Manchester goes on and on about every detail of each year. The music, the people, who invented what, and blah, blah, blah of every moment in Churchills world. Too much info. And 5 parts later we are only in 1932. I lasted til the 4th part but it isn't worth it.

    When Katie appears in the small North Carolina town of Southport, her sudden arrival raises questions about her past. Beautiful yet self-effacing, Katie seems determined to avoid forming personal ties until a series of events draws her into two reluctant relationships: one with Alex, a widowed store owner with a kind heart and two young children; and another with her plainspoken single neighbor, Jo. Despite her reservations, Katie begins to let down her guard, putting down roots in the close-knit community..

    Ruth Adamson says: "Not Nicholas Sparks best, but ok"
    "Predictable old storyline"
    Overall

    Shelter Island by Robyn Carr has the same plot. I read it last year and this was so predictable that I only kept reading it to find out if it ends the same way. It did.

    All children mythologize their birth... So begins the prologue of reclusive author Vida Winter's beloved collection of stories, long famous for the mystery of the missing thirteenth tale. The enigmatic Winter has always kept her violent and tragic past a secret. Now old and ailing, she summons a biographer to tell the truth about her extraordinary life: Margaret Lea, a young woman for whom the secret of her own birth remains an ever-present pain.

    PA Law says: "Haunting and beautiful tale"

    Loved every second of it. Wishing for heavy traffic so I could spend more time with it.

    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.

    Lisa says: "Excellent"
    "For first time reader too confusing"
    Overall

    Not having read anything else in the series, this was so hard to get into. Very little in setup. Repeated the first part several times. Didn't get better.
