    When Lucy Fellowes is offered a dream house in the country she leaps at it. It's hard enough living in London on an uncertain income, but when you're widowed with two small boys it's even harder. And anyway, a rural retreat will bring her closer to Charlie, the only man in four years to make her heart beat faster. Perfect. Or it would be. If only he didn't belong to someone else.

    Pirriwee Public's annual school Trivia Night has ended in a shocking riot. One parent is dead. The school principal is horrified. As police investigate what appears to have been a tragic accident, signs begin to indicate that this devastating death might have been cold-blooded murder. In this thought-provoking novel, number-one New York Times best-selling author Liane Moriarty deftly explores the reality of parenting and playground politics, ex-husbands and ex-wives, and fractured families.

    Rachel Gibson's spunky New York Times best-selling romances are confectionary treats for listeners. Curvaceous Adele Harris is prepared to give up dating forever. But when she travels home to console her sister, whose marriage is on the rocks, she runs into ex-flame Zach Zemaitis - and passions are reignited.

    Enjoyable light read, back story with dead first wife was novel. A bit more to the story than the usual romance fare which is a plus in my opinion. Worth a credit.

    Nessa Dahl lives a sensible life – until, that is, Jeremiah MacNaught comes to town and enlists her help to investigate a string of bank robberies. Only Mac realizes that beneath Nessa’s no-nonsense exterior exists an outlaw spirit, and between them burns a passion far hotter than a sultry summer night. But when she discovers that the handsome investigator is undercover, lying to her about his identity and convinced she’s involved with the crimes, he’ll learn what thigh high in trouble really means….

    Story

    Enjoyed the reader, the New Orleans backdrops was fantastic, but there were some idiotic interruptions that just did not fit in with the story or the presumed intelligence of the characters. I just had to fast forward through those parts, blech!
    The Aunts, as well as the supporting cast were great, I guess the lead characters were the only ones that kept falling off balance.

    Larry McMurtry's American epic, set in the late 19th century, tells the story of a cattle drive from Texas to Montana, a drive that represents not only a daring foolhardy adventure, but a part of the American Dream for everyone involved.

    Would you try another book from Larry McMurtry and/or Lee Horsley?

    Love McMurtys writing, have read about everything he has written. Lee Horsley does a fairly fine job with just about all the characters. But the way he hollars all of McCrays dialouge has made this a book I am unable to complete. I listen through head phones and I have had a headache from it. Even on my car stereo I am constantly adjusting the volume.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Lee Horsley?

    I would just have had him not shout all of Gus' dialogue


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I love a long rolling book. The mini series is a favorite and I have listen to all the others in the series and loved them.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope in the future someone else will record it and I will try again.

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

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

    Great book, I always love everything by Stephen King, no one has ever been able to surpass his character development. The reader did a fine job except for one glaring mistake the producer should have caught. It bugs me to no end when there are mispronunciations in a reading. I still don't know how they were able to mangle Xavier Cugat's name so soundly, but they managed it. But that is a very small thing for such a fantastic book.

    In a scrap heap within an abandoned factory, the greatest invention in history lies dormant and unused. By what fatal error of judgment has its value gone unrecognized, its brilliant inventor punished rather than rewarded for his efforts? In defense of those greatest of human qualities that have made civilization possible, one man sets out to show what would happen to the world if all the heroes of innovation and industry went on strike.

    Mica says: "Hurt version decidedly superior"
    "A tome"
    Overall

    This voluminous book had an enjoyable theme, but I kept thinking as each character rambled their points ad nauseam, that this reader sounds just like the just like the voice of the People Mover ride narrator at Disneyland. I know that ride is not around anymore, at least at the Anaheim location, but man, I just couldn't get past that for some reason.
    Only worth sitting through if you are looking for a book and want to get a lot out of your credit.

    Since half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her undead lover Bones met six years ago, they’ve fought against the rogue undead, battled a vengeful Master vampire, and pledged their devotion with a blood bond. Now it’s time for a vacation. But their hopes for a perfect Paris holiday are dashed when Cat awakes one night in terror. She’s having visions of a vampire named Gregor, who’s more powerful than Bones and has ties to her past that even Cat herself didn’t know about.

    Marla says: "Excellent!!"
    "Great series..."
    Overall

    This series is a great mix of action and sensual romance. I am not one to bear those mooning romance type novels. Although I found there was a bit of a continuity problem with this book. Bones level of strength is supposed to be unheralded because of the merging with his Grand Sires line, but Cat seems to doubt his strength at every turn. If you’re not a stickler for such minute detail, it is a very enjoyable book.
    One bit of advice, although I was excited to see book 5 and rushed to purchase it immediately, I found that there are lots of spoilers for the Night Huntress world books 1 and 2. So I had to stop listening and go back and order those two to catch up.

    Her husband’s suicide left Nora MacKenzie alone, and his shady Wall Street dealings left the Manhattan socialite penniless. By a miracle, she’s held on to their mountainside farm - and she’ll keep holding on, no matter what. The property is Nora’s one chance to wring some dignity out of the sham she’s been living. The Vermont locals think she’s a city girl on a nature kick, but she’s not afraid to get her hands dirty. Nora’s serious about learning the farming business…if she can figure out where to begin.

    What a yawner. Maybe I am getting too old for these trite stories. The only characters worth note were the grounds keeper and his family. Use your credit for a more worthy book.

    Sarah Roberts used to be good. Then she did something bad. Very bad. Now, years later, she’s living a good life. She works as a local newspaper reporter and lives with her saintly boyfriend, Jonathan. She has no reason to think her guilty past will ever catch up with her... until Nick walks back into her life. And suddenly, what’s good and bad aren’t so clear to Sarah anymore.

    Aimee says: "I did a bad thing"

    Predictable story, but love the reader and genre. Suzy Aitchinson always adds a bit more to what ever she reads. Definitely a white bread listen.
