    Coast Guard helicopter pilot Olivia Carver is on a very personal mission. Her twin brother, an undercover officer, was murdered by a drug cartel, and she won't stop until she finds the man responsible for his death. In the course of her own investigation, Olivia meets informant Rico Cortes. He's mysterious and sexy, and despite her reservations, the two share a night of passion. But Rico turns out to be more than a one-night stand....

    What didn’t you like about Gabra Zackman’s performance?

    The main charactor is a Coast Guard helicopter pilot. I realize the word helo (short for helicopter) can be pronounced "hel-lo" (per the dictionary), but in my aviation career I have never heard it pronounced this way. Any helo pilot will tell you that they fly "hee-loh"s not "hel-lo"s. Minor point, but it lends to credibility.


    Any additional comments?

    I guess I should have known from the cover art that this is a "harlequin romance" novel and not serious crime fiction.

  • The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat, and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet

    Dish up the red meat, eggs, and whole milk! In this well-researched and captivating narrative, veteran food writer Nina Teicholz proves how everything we've been told about fat is wrong. For decades, Americans have cut back on red meat and dairy products full of "bad" saturated fats. We obediently complied with nutritional guidelines to eat "heart healthy" fats found in olive oil, fish, and nuts, and followed a Mediterranean diet heavy on fruits, vegetables, and grains. Yet the nation's health has declined. What is going on?

    The information presented was eye opening. The author obviously did her homework in attacking the credibility those pushing the Heart Health "myth". All in all an excellent read and one I personally will be modeling my diet around.

  • The Gunslinger: The Dark Tower I

    Story

    Eerie, dreamlike, set in a world that is weirdly related to our own, The Gunslinger introduces Roland Deschain of Gilead, of In-World that was, as he pursues his enigmatic antagonist to the mountains that separate the desert from the Western Sea in the first volume of The Dark Tower series. Roland, the last gunslinger, is a solitary figure, perhaps accursed, who with a strange single-mindedness traverses an exhausted, almost timeless landscape of good and evil.

    Karen says: "Not a King fan...BUT"

    Overall

    I can't believe I listened to the entire novel. I kept waiting for it to get better, but it never did. Not worth the listen.
