    Story

    She may be a best-selling author, but ex-librarian Jacqueline Kirby's views on the publishing biz aren't fit to print. In fact, she's thinking of trading celebrity for serenity and a house far away from fiendish editors and demented fans, when her agent whispers the only words that could ever make her stay: Naked in the Ice.

    R. R. Roth says: "Great Narrator bad recording"
    "A pleasant Read"
    Overall

    When I first started listening to Elizabeth Peter's books I thought there was way too much detail but as I have listened to more and more of her books, I realize the detail is what hooks you and keeps you feeling like part of the adventure. This was my first Kirby mystery but I know I will be listening to them all before long. The character is engaging, a little sassy and very likable. I would recommend this book and suggest listening to the series to fully enjoy the authors ability to tie the stories together.

    In Dad is Fat, stand-up comedian Jim Gaffigan, who’s best known for his legendary riffs on Hot Pockets, bacon, manatees, and McDonald's, expresses all the joys and horrors of life with five young children - everything from cousins ("celebrities for little kids") to toddlers’ communication skills ("they always sound like they have traveled by horseback for hours to deliver important news"), to the eating habits of four-year-olds ("there is no difference between a four-year-old eating a taco and throwing a taco on the floor").

    Sean says: "Good for Gaffigan fans - better for expecting dads"

    This book is a must read for parents, soon to be parents, people who don't want to be parents and people who just need to read this book so they won't be so darn crabby!! Love the book, (listened to it twice in a row) Jim is funny and yet weird at the same time. Ding-a-Ding-a-Dong!!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dad Is Fat?

    All of it between the beginning word and the last word - Ding-a-Ding-a-Dong


    What about Jim Gaffigan’s performance did you like?

    He's funny - especially while I am eating a Hot Pocket and listening to Ding-a-Ding-a-Dong.

    Edgar Roy - an alleged serial killer held in a secure, fortress-like Federal Supermax facility-is awaiting trial. He faces almost certain conviction. Sean King and Michelle Maxwell are called in by Roy's attorney, Sean's old friend and mentor Ted Bergin, to help work the case. But their investigation is derailed before it begins-en route to their first meeting with Bergin, Sean and Michelle find him murdered. It is now up to them to ask the questions no one seems to want answered....

    What did you love best about The Sixth Man?

    David Baldacci is so much fun to read! He keeps you guessing but also brings the dark vs light of the government into the picture with details and believability. The characters become so real you want to invite them to dinner and ride in a bullet proof car!! Whether it is intrigue or insight David Baldacci is the man!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Well the two main characters are great but I really liked Kelly Paul in this story too! She was tough, smart and fiercely loyal.


    What about Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy ’s performance did you like?

    They brought the story to life - I always listen in my car and there was a couple times I wanted to duck!!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    First I would love to see this book in film! Secondly, I would tag it

    After more than 38 years, Father Tim Kavanagh returns to his childhood home of Holly Springs, Mississippi, on a profoundly personal journey. Whatever became of Tommy Noles, his forbidden childhood friend, and Peggy, the loving woman who was like his second mother? What were the facts behind the court trial that drove the Kavanagh family even further apart?

    Vickie says: "The book is wonderful as always, but....."
    "Disappointed with a capital D -"
    Overall

    Why did they change narrators!!??!! I have listened to all the series and I couldn't even get past the first couple of chapters in this book - the narrator is not horrible but he is completely wrong for this book - Can't really tell you if I liked the book because I couldn't listen to it - too dry and not engaging.

    The first victim was found lying on a sidewalk in the rain. The second was murdered in her own apartment building. Police lieutenant Eve Dallas had no problem finding connections between the two crimes. Both victims were beautiful and highly successful women. Their glamorous lives and loves were the talk of the city.

    Barry says: "Ericksen Steals the Show"
    "Great Book"
    Overall

    I love a good mystery and this series is great - could do without all the graphic sex - can't listen to it when anyone else is in the car with me - but it is a good series. The characters are interesting, the narrator is excellent, and the relationship between Roarke and Eve is evolving slowly. I forget that it is a futuristic novel but that makes it more involving.

    Madeline Deveridge is all too aware of the whispers behind her back, the rumors that she dispatched her husband to the next world and concealed her crime. But Madeline has far more pressing problems than being called the Wicked Widow. She fears that she and her beloved aunt are being haunted!

    This is a good mystery book, a little predictable but enjoyable. Kept me guessing for a while but by the time I figured out what and who the mystery man was the action was picking up and it kept me interested to the end. I recommend this to anyone who likes mysteries set in old time England.
