    The Women's Murder Club is stalked by a killer with nothing to lose. San Francisco Detective Lindsay Boxer is loving her life as a new mother. With an attentive husband, a job she loves, plus best friends who can talk about anything from sex to murder, things couldn't be better. Then the FBI sends Lindsay a photo of a killer from her past, and her happy world is shattered. The picture captures a beautiful woman at a stoplight. But all Lindsay sees is the psychopath behind those seductive eyes.

    Story

    I cannot stand listening to the narrator. When did these girls become such over-the-top swoony, sweet saps? "I'm sooooooo in love" blah, blah, blah....Carolyn McCormick did a much better job portraying these women as strong, independent, intelligent, tough women - is it the narrator or what the narrator has to work with in the writing? I don't know for sure, but I do know that this is likely my last WMC on audio - unless Carolyn McCormick comes back.

    Story

    I am having a very difficult time getting through this installment of the series. I cannot relate the narrator's voice to the character. Her accent, pronunciation and inflection are all wrong. If this is the narrator of the next books in the series, this will be my last. Bring back Michele Pawk!!!!

    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.

    Story

    I totally enjoyed the writing style which flipped back and forth from the past to present day. The author created a great deal of suspense - we know something bad happened to the heroine but never learned details until much later into the story. The british accents of the narrators were most delightful and I don't think I would have enjoyed the story as much had I simply read it.

  • A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail

    The Appalachian Trail trail stretches from Georgia to Maine and covers some of the most breathtaking terrain in America - majestic mountains, silent forests, sparking lakes. If you’re going to take a hike, it’s probably the place to go. And Bill Bryson is surely the most entertaing guide you’ll find. He introduces us to the history and ecology of the trail and to some of the other hardy (or just foolhardy) folks he meets along the way - and a couple of bears. Already a classic, A Walk in the Woods will make you long for the great outdoors (or at least a comfortable chair to sit and read in).

    Loved the self-deprecating humor included in the trials and tribulations of the journey. I also enjoyed the history of the AT included in the story. I thought the narrator did a wonderful job and made me laugh out loud with some of this characterizations. Very nicely done!

    Lindsay Boxer is pregnant at last! But her work doesn't slow for a second. When millionaire Chaz Smith is mercilessly gunned down, she discovers that the murder weapon is linked to the deaths of four of San Francisco's most untouchable criminals. And it was taken from her own department's evidence locker. Anyone could be the killer - even her closest friends. Lindsay is called next to the most bizarre crime scene she's ever seen: two bodiless heads elaborately displayed in the garden of a world-famous actor....

    Story

    After listening to the first 10 books in this series, I was greatly disappointed to have a new narrator. I had become accustomed to the various voices Carolyn McCormick used with the different characters and with January LaVoy that was all lost. I don't know if I will continue the series on audio if Carolyn McCormick does not come back.
