    Hot off the success of her best-selling Can You Keep a Secret?, Sophie Kinsella delivers another hilarious Becky Bloomwood novel. When last we left Becky Brandon (nee Bloomwood), she and Luke had just married and she'd unveiled her big honeymoon surprise...around-the-globe plane tickets. World-weary 10 months later, the newlyweds return home filled with excitement to share the details of their amazing escapades.

    "A Pleasant Surprise"
    Overall

    I really didn't expect to like this book......although I am definitely a Sophie Kinsella fan and enjoyed all the others. I expected it to be something sappy about sisters bonding and going on long shopping trips together. What a pleasant surprise to find such a fun read.....one of my favorites of the series. I am amazed that Ms. Kinsella has been able to keep this series going for so many books.....and I'm already looking forward to the next one.

    Catherine has been enjoying the single life for long enough to know a good catch when she sees one. Gorgeous, charismatic, spontaneous – Lee seems almost too perfect to be true. And her friends clearly agree, as each in turn falls under his spell. But there is a darker side to Lee. His erratic, controlling and sometimes frightening behaviour means that Catherine is increasingly isolated. Driven into the darkest corner of her world, and trusting no one, she plans a meticulous escape.

    Took me a little while to get into this book but enjoyed it after I did. Hard to follow until you pick up on the swing between the two time frames. The reader's accent put me off at first because it was different from the British accents I am used to hearing. Does deserve the four stars!

    When Dr. Mike Scanlon is called to serve as an army doctor in Afghanistan, he’s acutely aware of the dangers he’ll face and the hardships it will bring his wife, Chloe, and their newborn baby. And deep inside, he doesn’t think of himself as a hero, but a healer. However, in an ironic turn of events, as Mike operates on a wounded soldier in a war-torn country, Chloe dies at home in the suburbs, in an apparently freak household accident. Devastated, he returns home to bury her, only to discover that the life he left behind has fallen apart.

    I was very disappointed in this book. First half was OK. Ending was terrible.........unbelievable characters and actions. Narrator was OK for some parts but definitely not OK for others. French accent didn't bother me as much as the Philadelphia accent, which was demeaning. I'm from Philadelphia and I don't speak that way.

    International best-selling author Linwood Barclay delivers pulse-pounding suspense that puts him among the masters of the genre. A Tap on the Window finds private investigator Cal Weaver making an ill-advised decision to pick up a young female hitchhiker who reminds him of his dead son. But something is off about the girl, and Cal is soon drawn into a host of nightmarish secrets.

    Several years ago I read The Accident........and really liked it. A few months ago I reread it and liked it so much that I began to read all of the author's books. I thoroughly enjoyed every one of them until I got to this one. It was slower than the others but I could live with that. But the ending was just totally beyond belief. In most of his books the final solution is at least reasonable..........this one not so!

    Overall a good book..........will probably go back and read the first one in the series. A bit impausible in spots.............a General participating in a "breaking and entering" to help out a friend????

    Sound effects were annoying but most of all, the female voices were beyond irritating. Each one was worse than the last one. I have heard other narrations by Orlagh Cassidy where she is using her natural voice and they are fine......obviously she has a problem with multiple characters.

    Lottie just knows that her boyfriend is going to propose during lunch at one of London’s fanciest restaurants. But when his big question involves a trip abroad, not a trip down the aisle, she’s completely crushed. So when Ben, an old flame, calls her out of the blue and reminds Lottie of their pact to get married if they were both still single at 30, she jumps at the chance. No formal dates - just a quick march to the altar and a honeymoon on Ikonos, the sun-drenched Greek island where they first met years ago. Their family and friends are horrified. Fliss, Lottie’s older sister, knows that Lottie can be impulsive - but surely this is her worst decision yet.

    I am a huge Sophie Kinsella fan..........believe I have read just about everything she has written. Definitely preferred the Shopoholic books to her stand-alones.

    Wedding Night is a quick read and fun.........the narrators play a huge part in making this true.

    Mike Wingate had a rough childhood  —  he was abandoned at a playground at four years old and raised in foster care. No one ever came to claim him, and he has only a few, fragmented memories of his parents. Now, as an adult, Mike is finally living the life he had always wanted  —  he’s happily married to Annabel, the woman of his dreams; they have a precocious eight-year-old daughter, Kat.

    I really expected to like this book........but I didn't. The daughter really annoyed me. Even accounting for the circumstances, she acted like no 8-year-old I've ever known! I know there are violent people in this world, but the actions of some of the characters in this book strained my imagination. The hero was transformed from a middle-of-the-road substantial citizen to a violent-beyond-belief character in the blink of an eye.

    Didn't even listen to the last three or four hours. I know how it ends because I fell asleet while it was playing and heard the end...........but I just wasn't interested enough to go back and find out what happened in between.

    An up-and-coming African American artist has been murdered on Sheriff Joanna Brady’s turf in Cochise County, Arizona. Unfortunately the victim happens to be in the Washington State Attorney General’s Witness Protection Program. As the most recent hire in AG’s Special Homicide Investigation Team, J.P. Beaumont gets the call. He reluctantly heads to Bisbee, Arizona where he tangles not only with Joanna Brady and a contract killer but with some of his own personal demons as well.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the pair-up of Joanna Brady and J.P. Beaumont. I feel that this was one of the best J A Jance books and I have read a great many of them. I did have a problem with the dual narrators, though. Some of the voices were excellent and others were like chalk on a blackboard.

    More than a million listeners have thrilled to Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln, the can't-stop-listening work of nonfiction about the shocking assassination that changed the course of American history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts in gripping detail the brutal murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy—and how a sequence of gunshots on a Dallas afternoon not only killed a beloved president but also sent the nation into the cataclysmic division of the Vietnam War and its culture-changing aftermath.

    Judge Daniel Brennan is only days away from achieving a seat on the Second Circuit Court of Appeals bench when he's brutally stabbed to death in his garage. An army of media and law enforcement descend on the case, and thousands of tips pour in from the public. When one tip leads New Jersey policeman Luke Somers to Steven Gallagher, things quickly go wrong, but Luke is instantly glorified for solving the case. But to one man, Luke is no hero. Chris Gallagher raised his brother, Steven, almost single-handedly, and, certain that Steven is innocent, he won't rest until he sets the record straight.

    David Rosenfelt should stick with the Andy Carpenter stories.........which are super!! I have read every single one. However, this book was hard to follow, hard to believe.............and totally missing the Rosenfelt humor found in the Carpenter books.
