    Trenton, New Jersey, bounty hunter Stephanie Plum has inherited a “lucky” bottle from her Uncle Pip. Problem is, Uncle Pip didn’t specify if the bottle brought good luck or bad luck..

    Overall

    This book was disappointing and a bit odd. Who would have thought that you would have to add Hobbits to a book to make it interesting??? The narration drove me crazy with far too many "she said" "I said" "he said" throughout. Lorelei King does a great job with the voices of each character and she doesn't need to add who said what to every single interaction. Someone please tell the editor for the audible version!!!

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    "Psycho Piece of Garbage!"

    With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland. County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors’ blood and magic have flowed through generations - and where her destiny awaits.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This performance is over the top and completely unbelievable. I am usually a Nora Roberts fan, but I really did not enjoy this book at all!


    What could Nora Roberts have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Take more time writing it.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    In every way.

    Giana Van Cleve, the heroine, has fallen in love with a vicious fortune hunter. Her mother, the renowned shipowner and builder Aurora Van Cleve, is desperate to save her daughter. She agrees to support Giana’s wedding if Giana agrees first to spend an unusual three months in Rome with her Uncle Daniele. But Giana’s uncle takes this bargain far beyond what Aurora ever imagined. Thus, Giana first sees Alex Saxton not in a society drawing room, but in a brothel.

    How could the performance have been better?

    The accents were horrible and took away from my ability to tolerate even listening to the story.
