    Olivia Kiskey needs a change. She’s been working at the same Nodaway Falls, New York, waffle house since she was a teenager; not a lot of upward mobility there. She’s been in love with Tobias, the cook, for the last four years; he's never made a move. Intent on shaking things up, Olivia puts her house on the market, buys a one-way ticket to Europe, and announces her plans to her friends - but then she meets Davina Granville, a strange and mystical Southern woman....

    It's about friendships of girls who grew up together and how you dont always know the ins and outs of it. It's a good read for the tests of lasting friendships

    Story
    Would you listen to Deception again? Why?

    For me listening to a book on audio is like watching a movie in your minds eye, each time you listen to it you discover something you missed the first time around


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Deception?

    When the main character discovered who killed her grandmother and why.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the main character meets the Minister who is so self righteous because she knows a very damaging secret that he is not aware of.


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

    The ending because it set you up for the final book in the trilogy and I so hope I won't be disappointed .


    Any additional comments?

    Some of the sex scenes are explicit if you can get beyond that it's a great story.

    If you could sum up Exposed in three words, what would they be?

    Powerfully compelling story


    What other book might you compare Exposed to and why?

    This was the first of its type that I've read


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I liked the performance it was subtle in places allowing the read to second guess the maim character ,wondering how she was going to find her way through.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, what I didn't know when I started was that this was book 1 of a series


    Any additional comments?

    Because this is part of a series I quickly bought book 2 can't wait to see how it all ends.

    Lacey Terwilliger's shock and humiliation over her husband's philandering prompt her to add some bonus material to Mike's company newsletter: stunning Technicolor descriptions of the special brand of "administrative support" his receptionist gives him. The detailed mass e-mail to Mike's family, friends, and clients blows up in her face, and before one can say "instant urban legend", Lacey has become the pariah of her small Kentucky town and a media punch line....

    If you could sum up And One Last Thing... in three words, what would they be?

    The rude awakening


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main character was my favorite because once she found out what was really going on ,she handled her business .


    What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

    She kept it fast moving and perky


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

    I don't quite agree about how the book ended. Based on the authors ending the tag line would be love conquers all.


    Any additional comments?

    I would have enjoyed it even more if at the end she was alone for a while. I believe you need space between relationships, get to reconnect with the essence of who you are and what you want. She went from her mothers house to her husband's house. The short time in the cabin was not enough. She found a new love interest while she was out there, but by the end of the book they are moving in together .nothing wrong with finding love again but no moving in so quickly.

    In The Keeper of Lost Causes, Jussi Adler-Olsen introduced Detective Carl Mørck, a deeply flawed, brilliant detective newly assigned to run Department Q, the home of Copenhagen’s coldest cases. The result wasn’t what Mørck - or readers - expected, but by the opening of Adler-Olsen’s shocking, fast-paced follow-up, Mørck is satisfied with the notion of picking up long-cold leads. So he’s naturally intrigued when a closed case lands on his desk: A brother and sister were brutally murdered two decades earlier....

They are up and running on a new cold case that involves the upper crust many twists and turns , very edge of your seat action and again you won't want to put this book down until the last page. I can't wait for book three .

Why else would she agree to the outrageous charade offered by her buttoned-down workaholic neighbor, Linc Blaise? The history professor needs to have a fiancée in order to capture his dream job, and Daisy is game to play the role. But something funny happens on their way to the altar that changes everything.
