    There’s deadly trouble in the corn country of Nebraska... and Jack Reacher walks right into it. First he falls foul of the Duncans, a local clan that has terrified an entire county into submission. But it’s the unsolved case of a missing child, already decades-old, that Reacher can’t let go. The Duncans want Reacher gone - and it’s not just past secrets they’re trying to hide. They’re awaiting a secret shipment, and they have the kind of customers no one can afford to annoy.

    Overall

    I love Jack Reacher books and have read them all, this one is one of my favorites. I love his thought processes and how he anticipates what the other guy is going to do and the subtle humor. Dick Hill does an EXCELLENT job of narrating.

    Known for making up his own rules of right and wrong, Texas Ranger Sam "Wildcard" MacGregor takes what he wants when he wants it, especially when it comes to women. But seduction is the last thing on his mind the moment he stumbles across an Hispanic beauty crouching in fear beside a burned-out wagon.

    Cheryl says: "These books are really good Westerns"
    "Narrator not up to par for female part"
    Overall

    The narrator has a very deep voice and I love his portayal of Sam, however, Isabella's character comes off as stilted, monotoned and hard to distinquish. I'm having a hard time getting the chemistry between the two because of her voice. It probably would have been better to read this one with my eyes. I will definitely finish it though because I loved Caine's Reckoning and want to stay in touch with the story. I've just gotten to the first sexual scene and it's pretty hot, I have to say!

    I have read this book many times over the last 20 years, it is my all time favorite by Sandra Brown and getting to hear Dick Hill be the voice of Cash Boudreau was a real treat!

    Swan Peak finds Detective Robicheaux far from his New Iberia roots, attempting to relax in the untouched wilderness of rural Montana. He, his wife, and his buddy Clete Purcell have retreated to stay at an old friend's ranch, hoping to spend their days fishing and enjoying their distance from the harsh, gritty landscape of Louisiana post-Katrina.

    Deborah says: "Christmas/Birthday in July"
    "Loved it!"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book; Clete and Dave are getting up in years but still vital, believable characters. This book does get into Clete's head more. I love how he attracts all these women. I also was impressed with the redemption aspect of some of the characters.

    When 18th-century young lady Bella Rushdale finds herself fierely attracted to handsome landowner Lucerne Marlinscar, she does not expect the rival for her affections to be another man. However, the handsome and decadent Marquis Pennerley has desired Lucerne for years, and when they are brought together at the remote Lauwine Hall for a country party on the Yorkshire Moors, he intends to claim him.

    Meg says: "Risque Period Romance"
    "Urgh!"
    Overall

    I agree with Jud 100 percent. This book has no worthwhile storyline. I also wondered how an 18th century young woman could have so much sex and not even give a thought to the ramifications. I enjoy a good erotic book once in a while but it has to have some discretion. I quit reading after the first hour or so, I saw no point in continuing

    The Executive Board of an exclusive men's club meets to talk about 9/11 and finalize a retaliation plan, known by a code name: Wild Fire. That weekend, a member of the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force is found dead. It's up to Detective John Corey and his wife, FBI Agent Kate Mayfield, to unravel a terrifying plot that starts with the Custer Hill Club and ends with American cities locked in the crosshairs of a nuclear device.

    Joseph says: "Good, but the series is getting forced."
    "Corey and Mayfield what a combo"
    Overall

    I just finished the fourth novel in the Corey/Mayfield series and I loved it as much as all the others. My only objection to the story was that I thought Kate should have been a little stronger. She's his boss yet she always gave in to him. Everytime she gave a command that they should report in to the boss, he rejected it. It got on my nerves a little, but then after all - we wouldn't have much of a story if he followed her lead or I guess I should say - he wouldn't have been the hero in the end. I hope DeMille writes more about this dynamic duo.

    A simple black-and-white photograph, taken during the 1964 Clay-Liston fight in Miami Beach, sets off a modern-day murder spree that reaches from the quiet neighborhoods of Miami to the back corridors of the White House. When the last remaining copy falls into the hands of Thorn, a Key Largo recluse, he and everyone he loves become the targets of madmen and trained killers, each of whom has his own powerful motive to see the photograph destroyed forever and its secrets kept hidden.

    Overall

    I'm not much of a reviewer, but I really enjoyed this book. The plot was well done, it amazed me that one photo could bring about such tragic events. I thought the narrator did an excellent job, especially with Laughton. I could picture him as a cop in his lucid moments and in his confused state he was at times a crack up with his attitude toward Thorn and sad when he was over tired. The ending left an opening for a sequel. I will definitely look forward to more from this author.

    At the end of a long day battling street traffic, bike messenger Jace Damon has one last drop to make. But en route to delivering a package for one of L.A.'s sleaziest defense attorneys, he's nearly run down by a car, chased through back alleys, and shot at. Only the instincts acquired while growing up on the streets of L.A. allow him to escape with his life, and with the package someone wants badly enough to kill for.

    Bethany says: "An entertaining read"
    "Loved it"
    Overall

    I've read some of Tami's older novels, this is the first audio I've listened to of hers and will listen to some of the others she has available. Scott Brick did a great job of narrating, I'll listen to some of his other work. I would enjoy reading more about Kevin Parker, I think there's alot that could be done with his character. The two youngsters in this book were very well done, I especially enjoyed Tyler.

    Buckle your seat belts. New York Times best-selling author Janet Evanovich is moving into the fast lane with Metro Girl, a thrilling, high-octane misadventure with high stakes, hot nights, cold-blooded murder, sunken treasure, a woman with a chassis built for speed, and one very good, very sexy NASCAR driver who's along for the ride.

    Judie Cosentino says: "what metro?"
    "Metro Girl"
    Overall

    This is my first Janet Evanovich book, I know other people who really enjoy her but I doubt I'll read any other of her books. The narrator of this story is really ruining it, I keep thinking it might have been better to read this book with my eyes and then I might have enjoyed it more. She does a terrible job with NASCAR guy and the other males.
