    Best-selling sportswriter and Edgar Award winner John Feinstein is back with another sports mystery featuring Stevie Thomas and Susan Carol Anderson—this one set at the summer Olympics in London. In this book, Susan Carol isn't a reporter—she's an Olympian, competing as a swimmer at her first Olympic games. Stevie is both proud and envious of her athletic prowess. And he's worried by the agents and sponsors and media all wanting to get up close and personal with Susan Carol.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Rush for the Gold: Mystery at the Olympics to be better than the print version?

    My kids and I enjoyed listening to this book together, especially since it's Olympics' Time! The story was engaging and fun.


    Did Josh Feinstein do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    He was an okay narrator, but could not do accents at all! I recommend not even trying the accents or getting another narrator.

    Patrick Davis is a man with troubles. First his Hollywood dreams crumble, then his storybook marriage hits a snag. Finally, DVDs start being delivered to his house – DVDs which show that someone is watching him and his wife, that the two of them are being stalked and recorded by cameras hidden around and within their house. Then the e-mails start, and someone offers to fix everything, to take the mess his life has become and make it all right. Patrick figures it's the offer of a lifetime.

    Great listen which kept my attention throughout! Good pacing, tension and characters. Scott Brick was awesome as the narrator (as always - he can make a grocery list sound suspenseful).

    In the murky shadows of an alley lies a female’s severed hand. On the tenement rooftop above is the corpse belonging to that hand, a red-haired woman dressed all in black, the body nearly decapitated. Two strands of silver hair — not human — cling to her body. They are Rizzoli’s only clues, but they’re enough for her and medical examiner Maura Isles to make a startling discovery: This violent death had a chilling prequel.

    I didn't enjoy this as much as her previous novels. Not really sure why, but the plot and characters weren't as engaging. The narrator did a good job, but the tension and suspense just weren't up to par.

    Detective Lena Adams is the only suspect in a murder in Georgia. One hundred miles away, Police Chief Jeffrey Tolliver finds out that his young detective has been arrested. Jeffrey's wife Sara has no patience for Lena or her dramas. Fighting a malpractice suit, the last thing Sara needs is to see Jeffrey playing Lena's knight in shining armor. Lena has leapt into an underground world of bigotry and rage.

    Would you listen to Beyond Reach again? Why?

    Karin Slaughter's books are fantastic and always a great read/listen. I didn't love the reading of the male characters' voices compared to past readers.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All 3 main characters are great.


    Which character – as performed by Joyce Bean – was your favorite?

    I didn't love her performance overall, but Sarah was the best.


    Any additional comments?

    Wouldn't listen to performance by Joyce Bean again of Karin S's books.

    With the Beauty Killer Gretchen Lowell locked away behind bars once again, Archie Sheridan—a Portland police detective and nearly one of her victims—can finally rest a little easier. Meanwhile, the rest of the city of Portland is in crisis. Heavy rains have flooded the Willamette River, and several people have drowned in the quickly rising waters. Or at least that’s what they thought until the medical examiner discovers that the latest victim didn’t drown: She was poisoned before she went into the water.

    Talia says: "Good. Not great but good."

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I couldn't even finish listening. The reader read with such a monotone that I kept losing interest. I'm pretty sure it isn't the story since I've loved Chelsea Cain's other books.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Chelsea Cain? Why or why not?

    Not with same narrator.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Christina Delaine’s performances?

    NO WAY!!


    Was The Night Season worth the listening time?

    No
