    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in "The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas". As her family lay dying, little Libby fled their tiny farmhouse into the freezing January snow. She lost some fingers and toes, but she survived, and famously testified that her 15-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, Ben sits in prison, and troubled Libby lives off the dregs of a trust created by well-wishers who've long forgotten her.

    Which scene was your favorite?

    It's toward the end when the main character is talking with her mother - letting her mother take care of her


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

    The best stories pull readers in and keep them turning the pages, eager to discover more—to find the answer to the question: "And then what happened?" The true hallmark of great literature is great imagination, and as Neil Gaiman and Al Sarrantonio prove with this outstanding collection, when it comes to great fiction, all genres are equal.

    Miranda Puckett has failed at every job she’s ever had. Her mother just wants her to come home, join the family law firm, and settle down with Jason, the perfect lawyer boyfriend. But when Jason turns out to be a lying cheater, Miranda seizes on a job that gets her out of town: long-distance vampire transportation. Her first assignment is to drive vampire Collin Sutherland from Washington to sleepy Half Moon Hollow without incident—no small feat for a woman whom trouble seems to follow like a faithful hound dog!

    Where does Driving Mr. Dead rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Near the top of my favorite books. downloaded on a whim but will definitely get more of Molly Harper


    What other book might you compare Driving Mr. Dead to and why?

    It's not a book I would normally get, but took a chance on something new. It paid off in an amusing way.


    What does Amanda Ronconi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She really captured Miranda and she was a great performer


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I loved Collin driving the SUV off the cliff....

    Winter Makepeace lives a double life. By day he's the stoic headmaster of a home for foundling children. But the night brings out a darker side of Winter. As the moon rises, so does the Ghost of St. Giles-protector, judge, fugitive. When the Ghost, beaten and wounded, is rescued by a beautiful aristocrat, Winter has no idea that his two worlds are about to collide. Lady Isabel Beckinhall enjoys nothing more than a challenge. Yet when she's asked to tutor the Home's dour manager in the ways of society, Isabel can't help wondering why his eyes seem so familiar - and his lips so tempting.

    Would you listen to New Moon again? Why?

    Yes, because I love this book. It would be great if someone else read it. I do not care for the performer


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I like Alice - she's the sister Bella never had. I love all Emmett - he is the perfect brother. I love Edward - he is very complex. I love when Bellas goes to save him and they save each other.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Ilyana Kadushin’s performances?

    No


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I cried when Edward left. It was well done in the book. If you have ever had your heart broken - you can relate.

    About three things I was certain. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him, and I didn't know how dominant that part might be, that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.

    What would have made Twilight better?

    Cannot tolerate the performance. She put her own spin on the characters and makes them seem childish and immature. I love the book and the series and it is not how I would of read it to someone else.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Edward Cullen - complex character. He is a vampire who wants to be good but will never see himself as anything but a monster. he is so much more than that. If you have ever met your soul mate you can relate to their story.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Ilyana Kadushin’s performances?

    Absolutely not


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was moved by the love they have for each other - they want to be together through very defining differences and they find a way to make it work.

Elizabeth has found her footing as the chatelaine of the great house. They have two fine sons, Fitzwilliam and Charles. Elizabeth’s sister Jane and her husband, Bingley, live nearby; her father visits often; there is optimistic talk about the prospects of marriage for Darcy’s sister Georgiana. And preparations are under way for their much-anticipated annual autumn ball.
