    A tragic accident leaves Inspector Monk with amnesia just moments after he solves the murder of a popular Crimean war hero. Forced to redo his entire investigation, a frustrated Monk faces a desperate murderer who will do anything to keep the inspector from discovering the truth twice.

    Overall

    I enjoyed this Monk novel enormously! It extends the plot a little further in a very surprising way, and the details of London's sewers was historically interesting. Ms. Perry has a brilliant way of bringing you into the era as more of a resident than an observer.

    Olivia Kiskey needs a change. She’s been working at the same Nodaway Falls, New York, waffle house since she was a teenager; not a lot of upward mobility there. She’s been in love with Tobias, the cook, for the last four years; he's never made a move. Intent on shaking things up, Olivia puts her house on the market, buys a one-way ticket to Europe, and announces her plans to her friends - but then she meets Davina Granville, a strange and mystical Southern woman....

    What did you love best about A Little Night Magic?

    I really loved the story. A little dumb but so entertaining. It was like a satisfying gourmet breakfast instead of cold cereal, a real treat! The reader was funny and comfy with her story and it came over that way.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tobias, I think.


    What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

    100% enjoyable, it added credence and humer.


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

    Our heroines' refusal to believe in magic.

    Young Jane Silverlake lives with her father in a crumbling family estate on the edge of Hampstead Heath. Jane has a secret - an unexplainable gift that allows her to see the souls of man-made objects - and this talent isolates her from the outside world. Her greatest joy is wandering the wild heath with her neighbors, Madeline and Nathan. But as the friends come of age, their idyll is shattered by the feelings both girls develop for Nathan, and by Nathan’s interest in a cult led by Ariston Day, a charismatic mystic popular with London’s elite.

    Detective Michael Bennett arrests an infamous Mexican crime lord in a deadly chase that leaves Bennett's lifelong friend, Hughie McDonough, dead. From jail, the prisoner vows to rain epic violence down upon New York City - and to get revenge on Michael Bennett.

But instead of the calm and happy town he remembers, they step into a nightmare.

    Would you try another book from James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge and/or Bobby Cannavale and Jay Snyder ?

    Yes, I will always choose his books. One bad applle,, and all that,,


    Would you recommend I, Michael Bennett to your friends? Why or why not?

    Not this time. This time Michael is unbelievable. He's too experienced to be so clueless in this book. He behaved like he's doing drugs, no unity in his personality and since when has his kids played such a small role in his life. ANYONE, even a cop, stays in touch better than this in the story. His family was a dis-jointed afterthought or even worse, a 'filler'.


    Have you listened to any of Bobby Cannavale and Jay Snyder ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Performances were stellar as usual.


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

    ..thinking twice about it..


    Any additional comments?

    I am looking forward to how he's going to 'hide in plain sight' a unique family like this, also it would serve him right to lose Mary Cathrine. All he did in this book was dump his kids on her and then just dump on Her.

    The Prince of Wales has asked four wealthy entrepreneurs and their elegant wives to the palace to discuss a fantastic idea: the construction of a 6,000-mile railroad that would stretch the full length of Africa. But alas, the prince's gathering proves disastrous when the mutilated body of a prostitute hired for a late-night frolic (after the wives have retired to bed) turns up among the queen's monogrammed sheets in a palace linen closet.

    The narrator is good EXCEPT when he reads as a character - ugh. He sounds like Snidley Whiplash. I am so disappointed - it ruined the story for me. Damn.
