    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.

    I multi task while listening, and I admit I had trouble following the family tree as presented. I kept remembering from the prior book where the picture of Sabine's parents was faked so it threw the whole story off for me. Still scratching my head. I still enjoyed the characters and the reader, just the story was a bit off.

    Sorry. The single word is written on a mirror. In front of it hangs a Minneapolis Internal Affairs cop. Was it suicide? Or a kinky act turned tragic? Either way, it wasn't murder. At least not according to the powers that be. But veteran homicide detective Sam Kovac and his wisecracking, ambitious partner, Nikki Liska, think differently. Together they begin to dig at the too-neat edges of the young cop's death, uncovering one motive - and one suspect - after another.

    Suzie Miller, a disillusioned agony aunt, can't believe she's been dumped from a great height yet again (this time by text!). So she decides the time is right to make every one of her exes feel the pain she felt when they carelessly cast her aside. Her methods are unusual but humiliation on a grand scale is no less than they deserve. And then she starts giving the same advice to her readers….

    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.

    Sharon says: "New Liane Moriarty fans!"

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….

    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.
