    Firefly Summer is the story of four fateful years in the life of a small, sleepy Irish town, beginning in the summer of 1962, when American millionaire Patrick O'Neill comes to town. In particular, this is the story of the family who run the local pub. It tells interlocking stories of love lost and won, hopes raised and dashed, ambitions nurtured, and secrets betrayed.

    "Okay but not memorable"
    Overall

    A good solid 'read' with well developed characters that transported me into a time of enormous change around the world. I did look forward to turning it on, but then when it was all done, I didn't regret that there was no more.

    Given the importance of what they do, and the controversies that often surround them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett has just become number five.... Nothing is as it seems and everything’s fair game in this wickedly clever new novel from John Grisham, the undisputed master of the legal thriller.

    Story

    Oy, this is one of those books where about half way through it is filled with so many details and descriptions, you know it is one of those 'add the words' exercises.
    Unsatisfying ending. Can't believe I didn't bail before it ended.

    It is the cusp of World War I, and all the European powers are arming up. The Austro-Hungarians and Germans have their Clankers, steam-driven iron machines loaded with guns and ammunition. The British Darwinists employ fabricated animals as their weaponry. The Leviathan is a living airship, the most formidable airbeast in the skies of Europe.

    Story

    yes, its a youth book, but quite interesting
    This book capitivated me with its rich characters, balanced descriptives and moving plot line.
    Good listening...even for an adult who usually does the murder mysteries.
    Well narrated. I'm off to get the next two in the series.

    Vanessa “Michael” Munroe deals in information - expensive information - working for corporations, heads of state, private clients, and anyone else who can pay for her unique brand of expertise. Born to missionary parents in lawless central Africa, Munroe took up with an infamous gunrunner and his mercenary crew when she was just fourteen. As his protégé, she earned the respect of the jungle's most dangerous men, cultivating her own reputation for years until something sent her running. After almost a decade building a new life and lucrative career from her home base in Dallas, she's never looked back. Until now....

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Under a Bangkok bridge, inside a bolted-shut Mercedes, a Marine is killed by a python and a swarm of cobras. Two cops arrive too late. Minutes later, only one is alive: Sonchai Jitpleecheep. Now, his partner dead, Sonchai must search for the murderer in the moneyed underbelly of Bangkok - and track a predator of an even more sinister variety.

    It is the week before Christmas. A tanking economy has prompted Dr. Kay Scarpetta - despite her busy schedule and her continuing work as the senior forensic analyst for CNN - to offer her services pro bono to New York City's Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. In no time at all, her increased visibility seems to precipitate a string of unexpected and unsettling events.

    Lee says: "Disappointed"
    "Rehash and confusion"
    Overall

    This story is a rehash and descriptive narrative until the last 30 minutes where all of a sudden a mystery is created, solved and we were supposed to have cheered.
    I found myself checking the timing to see when it would end and I would be taken out of my misery.
    Cornwell was on a deadline to meet a contract for this one.
    Big thumbs down.

    For untold years, the perfectly preserved mummy had lain forgotten in the dusty basement of Boston's Crispin Museum. Now its sudden rediscovery by museum staff is both a major coup and an attention-grabbing mystery. Dubbed "Madam X", the mummy - to all appearances, an ancient Egyptian artifact - seems a ghoulish godsend for the financially struggling institution.

    I used my audiobooks as a way to lure me into exercising. Not allowed to listen unless I am doing something productive. This book was worth it. I kept needing to go back to it and was satisfied with the ending.

    In one year Julia Sweeney got a divorce (amicable), bought a small bungalow in Hollywood, and looked forward to a life that said, "Here dwells a happily single young woman!" But then the axe fell. Her younger brother, Mike, was diagnosed with terminal cancer and moved in with her. Her parents came to be with Mike and moved in with her, too. Julia was now on seriously intimate terms with the people she had spent half a lifetime growing up away from.

    Overall

    Quick, witty, a great distraction for a long walk.

    Berry Knudson had a talent for disaster, but when she climbed a tree to rescue a kitten, she wasn't prepared for the scrumptious hunk undressing in a nearby window, or her dive downward that smashed Jake Sawyer's pizza and won his heart! But was there room in her chaotic schedule for a risk-taking inventor with dreams? She took classes, delivered pizzas, and cared for three eccentric old ladies she rescued from the train station. But Jake thrived on a challenge, and he could be very inventive.

    "AUG! Enough already"

    I am amazed that I had the patience to finish the book...maybe just not the opportunity to go grab a different one for my player.
    The heroine is not likable and the hero simply not worth winning. There was a point where I just wanted it over with.
