    Robyn Peltier moved to Los Angeles after her young husband's sudden death. Though she's still grieving, the challenges of her new life as the PR consultant to Portia Kane - the world's most famous celebutante wannabe - can sometimes be amusing, even distracting. But when her client is gunned down in a nightclub, Robyn is suddenly on the run as the prime suspect in the murder. And as more bodies pile up around her, it seems like only Hope Adams, Robyn's best friend, and Hope's somewhat spooky boyfriend Karl are on Robyn's side. But it's not the police Hope is worried about, and the only way Hope can keep her friend alive is by letting her enter a world she's safer knowing nothing about.

    Jonathan says: "Great Story brought down by terrible naration"
    "Enjoyed the book...once you get past the NARRATOR"
    Overall

    I just love all Kelley's books, but it's very difficult to get into when the narrator is so horrible. She even messes up Jaime Vegas' name, pronouncing it, as if Jaime were a Hispanic male name! A previous review called the main character a whiney valley girl, which I completely agree with. These are strong female characters, not young teenagers and it would be great if the narrator took that seriously. Again, once you get past the narrator, you get to enjoy the book...though a little dark and disturbing at points. Still a great book. I'm sort of bumbed to see the same narrator on the next book, but she's not there for the 11th, whoohoo!

    Story

    I found this whole series to be delightful! I read a couple of reviews (prior to purchase) -- on individuals who weren't crazy about the narrator's accents...but I thought she did a great job. On multiple occasions, I found myself laughing out loud. Nora's books are always wonderful, a great escape, and this audio book was done very well.

    Earth has been invaded by a species that takes over the minds of human hosts while leaving their bodies intact. But Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away.

    Keith says: "Great story in a genre only touched upon before"
    "The Host"
    Overall

    What a pleasant surprise! It took me awhile to listen to this book. I struggled with the first chapter twice...and needed to begin again for the third and final time. I struggled with how much I enjoyed the Twilight series and unfairly didn't give this book it's rightful chance. After reading well into the 3rd chapter, I found myself completely drawn in with it's complex story line. Stephanie Meyer proves to impress me yet again...I would recommend this book to anyone!

    When a wealthy man first meets his mail-order bride in 1907, he realizes this statuesque beauty is anything but a "simple missionary's daughter." But he doesn't know of her devious plan to leave Wisconsin as a rich widow. Nor does she know of the furious demons he longs to unleash during the lonely months of snowbound isolation.

    Richard says: "Intriguing story but only average writing"
    "A Reliable Wife"
    Overall

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was rich and painful and full of amazing detail. A testimate to how we can all change, become something good and kind...even when we have such dark shadows that haunt us from our past. Great book!
