    Top plastic surgeon Elijah Creem is renowned for his skills in the operating room, and for his wild, no-expense-spared "industry parties", bringing in underage exotic dancers and models for nights of drugs, champagne, and uninhibited sex. That is, until Detective Alex Cross busts one of Creem's lavish soirees and ruins his fun. Now Creem is willing to do anything to avoid going to jail. But Alex doesn't have time to dwell on that case. A beautiful woman has been found murdered in her car, a lock of her hair viciously ripped off. Then a second woman is found hanging from a sixth-floor window with a brutal scar slashed across her stomach....

    Cris says: "Ugh!"
    "Alex Cross on top of his game."

  • The Language of Flowers: A Novel

    Story
    (838)

    A mesmerizing, moving, and elegantly written debut novel, The Language of Flowers beautifully weaves past and present, creating a vivid portrait of an unforgettable woman whose gift for flowers helps her change the lives of others even as she struggles to overcome her own troubled past. The Victorian language of flowers was used to convey romantic expressions: honeysuckle for devotion, asters for patience, and red roses for love. But for Victoria Jones, it's been more useful in communicating grief, mistrust, and solitude.

    Diana - Audible says: "You don't need a green thumb to enjoy this one"
    "Sad, yet beautiful and inspiring."

    Story
    Where does The Language of Flowers rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    My had read this in her book club and recommended it to me. It was well worth the 'read'. High up on my favorites list.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I didn't realize that each flower conveyed a message. Something I will have to consider in future bouquet gifts.


    Which character – as performed by Tara Sands – was your favorite?

    Vanessa Diffenbaugh introduces you to a young girl and gradually but surely adds layer upon layer to her character until the whole girl is shown with all her highs, lows, character strengths and weaknesses.

    The way Vanessa moves between past and present is deliberately timed to give the listener a bit more insight into the young girl exactly as needed.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Language of Flowers and why?

    There was absolutely NOTHING about Tara Sands performance that was lacking. Her timing, energy and delivery were superb. She didn't just read the story, she infused it with life.


    Any additional comments?

    Tara Sands was the perfect choice for the narrator. She was able to make the reader believe that an eighteen + young lady was, indeed, telling her story.

    The surprising twist that takes the Travis McGee series into a whole new chapter.
