    For four years, from the election of John Fitzgerald Kennedy until after the election of Lyndon Johnson, Clint Hill was the Secret Service agent assigned to guard the glamorous and private Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy. During those four years, he went from being a reluctant guardian to a fiercely loyal watchdog and friend. Looking back, Clint Hill tells his story for the first time, offering a tender and tragic portrayal of how a Secret Service agent who started life in an orphanage became the most trusted man in the life of the First Lady who captivated first the nation and then the world.

    Story

    PLOT: secret service agent Clint Hill was bodyguard to Jackie Kennedy~

    this is a loving memory of the Jackie Kennedy and the first family by Secret Service Angent Clint Hill. BUT soon it takes a bizarre twist as his comments about his "feelings" about the first lady. He adores her that is clear but comments like "we could read each other's mind she would start a sentence and I could finish it" made you feel very much this agent had some kind of bizarre "emotional ONE sided bond" with Jackie Kennedy. He often uses the tems of how he would have liked to "HUG" her to comfort her and very much is way to familiar in his emotion descriptions in this audio book. Clint Hill appears to have a remarkable memory of events and tells events in glossed over manner about HIS relationship with the Kennedys. The story is an excellent one and moves along very well over the several years and gives us a VERY good look inside the Kennedy Whitehouse. The death of President Kennedy is first rate. What detracts from the events are the "emotions" tells us about in this book. His weird emotion bond with Jackie Kennedy makes you uncomfortable at times. I felt he had some narcissistic ideas when he was so emotional over his dealing with the Kennedys and yet detached when he spoke about his own wife and family. I give it 4 stars over all because I felt Clint Hill was more emotional attached to Jackie Kennedy that is proper for a bodyguard and how little the agent spoke of his own personal attachment to his own wife and children.

Chelsey a very successful romance writer ends up with David the hot ER Doc...and the road to romance has plenty of bumps. This is a fun little romance and holds the interest. I give it 3 out of 5 for early Colter romances. also try After Shocks by Catherine Coulter.

    What does it mean to be a Kennedy? If ever three women would be challenged and changed by marriage into a family, it would be Jacqueline Bouvier, Ethel Skakel, and Joan Bennett. None of these radiant brides could have ever been prepared for the fame, the family, and tragedies that would spring from their lives. As they struggled to cope with their husbands' infidelities, the harsh glare of the media, and the assassinations of John and Robert Kennedy, these women would learn what it meant to be sisters, reaching out to one another with comfort and consolation.

    In 1942, the Brooklyn-born Erickson was a millionaire oil mogul who volunteered for a dangerous mission inside the Third Reich: Locating the top-secret synthetic oil plants that kept the German war machine running. To fool the Nazis, Erickson played the role of a collaborator. He hung a portrait of Hitler in his apartment and "disowned" his Jewish best friend, then flew to Berlin, where he charmed Himmler and signed lucrative oil deals with the architects of the Final Solution.

    This is based in a real live man who was born in the USA and moved to SWEDEN to an oil company mogul. He marries a swede and then World War 2 starts. He is recruited to spy for the allies. Erik Erickson is known as RED......his code name and comes up with the idea of a "oil refinery" in neutral Sweden to gain access to the oil refineries in Germany. This aids in helping the allies fine locations for bombings. This is a good audio. Moves alone well and keeps the interest. I give it 3 out of 5.....

    Actual events during the Cold War inspired this thriller that takes place in a suburb of London during the autumn and winter of 1960-1961. Loyalty, duty, and friendship collide when the Jacksons slowly discover the Krogers, their neighbors and cherished friends, are not what they appear. A gripping play that may leave you wondering exactly what it is those nice people next door are really up to.

After all this time, would Rhy Baines, the news publisher, recognize his wife? Sallie Jerome, a.k.a. Mrs. Baines, had picked up the pieces of shattered dreams after Rhy walked out. She'd become the independent, self-possessed woman he'd always wanted. Only now, she didn't want him. Or did she?

He soon found his travels as a world class journalist more interesting than his little frumpy wife. After she looses her baby she and Rhy part ways........ 9 years later Sarah is now Sallie and still married but only her close friend know it. She is now a slender intelligent reporter and loves her job. When Rhy shows up.... she has not seen in years becomes her new boss she is not happy by any means. She tried to avoid him hoping he will not recognize her. When Rhy soon curtails her adventuresome reporting she gets bored. Rhy wants to get close to Sallie but she find he has a mistress Coral. This is a very dated book complete with "hero Rhy" who we do not like and is very dominate mentally and physically with Sallie. This story is interesting but this early Linda Howard is not one of her best. What makes this book AWEFUL is the reader. I have no idea why Dreamscape is not getting this right. This woman is the WORSE reader in all the hundreds of books I have ever heard. She is speeds up and then way down and then goes to Minnie mouse....LOL...bad....I did the fair thing and listened to the whole book but ONLY because of Linda Howard.....I would not bother with this one....and I can ONLY give it a 1 STARS because of Linda Howard and that is being generous. AVOID this LEMON.....even sugar would 'not' help it. Try Mr. Perfect.....and know what a good audiobook by Linda Howard is......

    Here is a gripping, behind-the-scenes look inside the classic suspense shocker Psycho - and the creative genius who revolutionized filmmaking. First released in June 1960, Psycho altered the landscape of horror films forever. But just as compelling as the movie itself is the story behind it. Stephen Rebello brings to life the creation of one of Hollywood’s most iconic films, from the story of Wisconsin murderer Ed Gein, the real-life inspiration for the character of Norman Bates, to Hitchcock’s groundbreaking achievements in cinematography, sound, editing, and promotion.

    Story

    Plot: soapy look a the Master of suspense.

    1959 and cinema is changing. Studios are looking for cheaper budgets that bring in huge profits. Alfred Hitchcock is looking for his next "project"....and comes across a book about an early serial killer from Wisconsin. The then 'shocking' murders combined with sex and transvestite behavior is all unheard of. So Hitchcock acquires the "right" the murder bio of serial killer Ed Gein. the studios do not want to make this movie....refuse to finance it so Hitchcock takes the huge gamble to finance it himself. He swears the actors and film crew to secrecy about the excellent plot and soon starts to film the classic horror movie Psycho. This goes behind the scenes and gives us details of Hitchcock and his wife and often behind scenes partner Alma. As the methodical shots and plot are given "the masters touch" he also battles for the first time some nudity and blood and yes even a toilet for the first time in film. this is a very good book. You have to like Hitchcock to enjoy it. The plot is most entertaining and gives us look into 1960s life and mentality. His over the top marketing of the film that made him RICH and put this movie as one of the best horror movies ever. I give it 4 STARS.....
