    Charlene Rosalind Carter Grant believes that she will be murdered in four days. And she wants Boston’s top detective to handle her death investigation. It will be up close and personal. No evidence of forced entry, no sign of struggle. Charlie tells a chilling story: Each year at 8:00 p.m. on January 21, a woman has died. The victims have been childhood best friends from a small town in New Hampshire; the motive remains unknown. Now only one friend, Charlie, remains to count down her final hours.

    Stasie says: "Great mystery."

    What made the experience of listening to Catch Me the most enjoyable?

    I love the way that Lisa Gardner brings relationships into her novels. I'm always interested in the solving of the crime, but I'm also interested in the characters themselves.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The most interesting part of the story was the beginning when the character of the mother was defined and the relationship she had with her children. The least interesting was wa relationship between the two sisters.


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

    The narrator brings a clarity of character to the people that wouldn't be there if the story was just read to oneself. She makes each character a distinct and real.


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

    no.

    What did you like best about Gone? What did you like least?

    I really like the narrator. She has a way of making the voices and characters come alive for me. I didn't like the developement of the main character as well in this book. It was probably just my taste but I wanted her to be stronger and less "messed up."


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    N/A


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The ending because you got a sense of a new beginning in the works. It wasn't like everything was suddenly okay, but yet it was like reality where people have to work at fixing their problems with a little sunshine on the horizon.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes

    What do you do when a killer targets the people you love most? How do you protect them when he knows their most secret fears and hidden desires? When he knows just when to strike? And, most of all, when he knows the same about you?

    Would you listen to The Next Accident again? Why?

    I have listened to the book 3 times already and have loved it every time. Each time I find another level of the story and enjoy it even more.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the way the story plot twisted and turned so that you were on the edge of your seat. I also loved the character development and interraction.


    Have you listened to any of Kate Burton’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've not listened to any other Kate Burton's performances before but will look for them in the future.


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

    I thought the scenes when the main chacter realized that his family and loved ones were the ultimate target of the murderer were especially poignant.


    Any additional comments?

    This book and presentation is extremely well done. I would recomment it to anyone.

    Gideon Raintree, a homicide detective, can harness electricity and talk to ghosts. He will need to wield gifts he's kept hidden to solve his newest case, a relentless serial killer unleashed by the dark Ansara wizards. But first he must deal with his reaction to Hope Malory, his alluring new partner. He'd never planned on love in the midst of battle.

    Story
    What did you like best about Raintree? What did you like least?

    I liked the fact that it was different and innovative. I have never read a book like this with this kind of a story line before. Usually anything with a supernatural or science fiction theme is somewhat predictable. This one wasn't. I didn't like the fact that it ended so abruptly. I'm assuming that there is or will be a sequel and the author wants to leave the reader in suspense so that the he/she will continue on with the series. However, this was too much of a cliff hanger. I didn't feel that a lot of the loose ends were tied up enough to make the book understandable. I felt somewhat robbed of an ending.


    Would you recommend Raintree to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would recommend Raintree to my friends but not whole heartedly. I would tell them that it's a good read but will not keep them on the edge of their chairs with either interest or suspense.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked the scenes where Emma apopeared and called Raintree "Daddy." I thought that was an interesting part of the story.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No, probably not. I would watch it if it came on tv, though.

    Would you try another book from the author and/or the narrator?

    NO. The writer didn't develope a good plot and The narrator was too "sing songy."


    Would you ever listen to anything by the author again?

    No, the story was just fluff and not substance.


    What didn’t you like about the narrator’s performance?

    The narrator's voice was too "sing Songy" and too little girlish.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    There is an old saying that "if you suffer, you can do good art." I should be able to do good art now. In fact I should have take Van Gogh's idea and cut off my ear - both of them!

    Everybody knows Cate Cahill and her sisters are eccentric. Too pretty, too reclusive, and far too educated for their own good. But the truth is even worse: they're witches. And if their secret is discovered by the priests of the Brotherhood, it would mean an asylum, a prison ship - or an early grave.

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

    The emphasis on certain parts of the book lent itself to the drama and storyline.

    Tracker must rescue kidnapped heiress Ari Blake and deliver her safely to the Hell's Eight compound - by any means necessary. Turns out that includes marrying her, if he means to escort her and her infant daughter across the Texas Territory. Tracker hadn't bargained on a wife - especially such a fair, blue-eyed beauty. But the erotic pleasures of the marriage bed more than make up for the surprise....

    Tara says: "The best of the series"

    Where does Tracker's Sin rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is one of the best in all areas.


    What other book might you compare Tracker's Sin to and why?

    Sarah McCarty's books are especially good and very consistent in their high quality.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I like the ending because it set up the next book in the Hells Eight Series.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was on the edge of my seat for most of the book. The suspense was pallatible at times and the story moved along with ease.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait for the rest of the Hells Eight Series.
