    This one is better than the first one I listened to.


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

    On a fateful summer morning in 1986, two 11-year-old girls meet for the first time. By the end of the day, they will both be charged with murder. Twenty-five years later, journalist Kirsty Lindsay is reporting on a series of sickening attacks on young female tourists in a seaside vacation town when her investigation leads her to interview carnival cleaner Amber Gordon. For Kirsty and Amber, it's the first time they've seen each other since that dark day so many years ago. Now with new, vastly different lives - and unknowing families to protect - will they really be able to keep their wicked secret hidden?

    Story
    If you could sum up The Wicked Girls in three words, what would they be?

    Engrossing, heartbreaking, realistic


    What other book might you compare The Wicked Girls to and why?

    I have not read anything like this before. It was a very original story.


    What does Anna Bentinck bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Listening to the narrator helped me understand some of the expressions I was unfamiliar with. The book was written using a lot of phrases used more in England then the US. This narrator was excellent and brought the story to life for me. If I read the book instead of listened I think I would have been lost. Anna is a fantastic narrator.


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

    When Vic told Amber he knew her secret all along and he mocked her.


    Any additional comments?

    The story was heart breaking and the ending was an unhappy one but it was a good book. I was routing for Amber all the way through. The world can be such an unfair place. This book really makes you think about how we judge others unfairly in the media.

    Little else in life is as dangerous as fire jumping. Flying past towering pillars of smoke, parachuting down to the edge of an all-consuming blaze, shoveling and sawing for hours upon hours, days at a time, all to hold the line and push back against the raw power of Mother Nature. But there’s also little else as thrilling - at least to Rowan Tripp. The Missoula smoke jumpers are one of the most exclusive firefighting squads in the nation, and the job is in Rowan’s blood: her father is a legend in the field. She’s been fighting fires since her eighteenth birthday.

    M. Davis says: "Another winner by Roberts!"
    "Loved this book and the narrator too!"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Chasing Fire to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version of Chasing Fire but the audio version was outstanding! I loved all the twists and turns the story took and the narrator was very good.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Gulliver was my favorite character because he was such a calm and steady man in the book. Very trust worthy and reliable and honest. He made me laugh and his character made this book a great listen.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scenes were the scenes with Rowan and her father. They were so well written I could get lost in the story. Hours passed like minutes and since I listen while working at my second job (cleaning offices) I loved the distraction!


    If you could take any character from Chasing Fire out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Rowan's father. Because I never had a dad like that and I would want to pick his brain a bit and seek advise from him if he were real!


    Any additional comments?

    This book had everything. Romance, mystery, and action. I couldn't ask for more!

    Thanks to paper-thin walls and the guy’s athletic prowess, Carolyn is gaining an - um - intimate knowledge of her new neighbor's nocturnal adventures. And since Caroline is currently on a self-imposed "dating hiatus," and her neighbor is clearly lethally attractive to women, she finds her fantasies keep her awake even longer than the noise. So when the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts Simon Parker, her heard-but-never-seen neighbor.

    What did you love best about Wallbanger?

    This book had everything. It was funny, romantic and it kept my attention all the way through. The characters were original and this book reminded me of nothing I have ever read or listened to before.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The best part of the story was the originality. Lately it seems like everyone is just writing a "50 Shades of Grey" wanna-be. But not this story. Original and funny!


    What about Heather Smith’s performance did you like?

    I liked Heather Smith's performance because she made it easy to follow which character was speaking and the emotion in her voice just sucked me right in to the story.


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

    When Simon came home early and surprised Caroline after the trip because he was worried about her.

    For almost two years now, Kiera’s boyfriend, Denny, has been everything she’s ever wanted: loving, tender, and endlessly devoted to her. When they head off to a new city to start their lives together - Denny at his dream job and Kiera at a top-notch university - everything seems perfect. Then an unforeseen obligation forces the happy couple apart. Feeling lonely, confused, and in need of comfort, Kiera turns to an unexpected source - a local rock star named Kellan Kyle. At first, he’s purely a friend she can lean on, but as her loneliness grows, so does their relationship. And then one night everything changes....

    What made the experience of listening to Thoughtless the most enjoyable?

    This book kept me wondering what would happen next. I enjoyed it very much even though Kiera drove me nuts. I think that was part of the reason I kept wanting to hear more.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the way the author make me feel both Kellan and Denny's side of the story and still not hate Kiera (a least not too much)


    What does Rebekkah Ross bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    With some audiobooks I get lost trying to figure out which character is speaking. Not this one. The narrator was excellent and I easily got lost in the story without thinking. It was a lovely escape from reality.


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

    YES!


    Any additional comments?

    I saw some bad reviews but decided to try this book anyway. I am so glad I did. The reviewers were annoyed with the main character not the book itself. If you can get mad at a character that is the sign of a great story to me. Read this. You won't be sorry.

    Would you listen to The Witness again? Why?

    Yes I would listen to The Witness again. It was entertaining and very well read by the narrator.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot kept me on the edge of my seat because Nora Roberts does a great job of making you feel for the characters in this book. I couldn't wait to see what would happen next!


    What does Julia Whelan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Julia did a great job of pronouncing all those foreign names. Reading this myself would not have gone so smoothly for me. I would have gotten hung up on those names but the story just flowed along the way the narrator read.


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

    YES!


    Any additional comments?

    This would be a great movie!

    Lunacy was Nate Burke's last chance. As a Baltimore cop, he'd watched his partner die on the street - and the guilt still haunts him. With nowhere else to go, he accepts the job as chief of police in this tiny, remote Alaskan town. Aside from sorting out a run-in between a couple of motor vehicles and a moose, he finds his first few weeks on the job are relatively quiet. But that's about to change.

    "Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness… He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily…Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds…and desires."

    What would have made Bared to You better?

    There was nothing in this book that made me like the characters. It just jumped into the desriptions of the characters sexual acts. There were too many ideas stolen from 50 Shades of Grey and they were not done nearly as well.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator didn't really detract from the book. I guess she did the best she could with the very limited story line.
