    Denise and Derrek Shaw are the perfect American couple. Happily married for 15 years, they have a wonderful daughter, Mackenzie, successful careers, and a beautiful house in a posh Chicago suburb. They are attractive, respected...and hiding a shocking secret: a dangerous addiction to drugs. It started innocently enough. Denise occasionally used prescription drugs to help her deal with the long hours and demanding nature of her job. Derrek, also under pressure at work, began using cocaine socially with some of his colleagues. They can quit whenever they want to. At least, that's what Denise would like to believe....

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    yes and no...
    yes. because there is a friend that would love the whole COP and Mystery part. As well as the point of bring loved

    Would you be willing to try another book from Maya Banks? Why or why not?

    Yes,

    The COUNTRY ACCENTS.. hilairous. just a little too much TWANG..

    Would you try another book from Mary B. Morrison and/or Allyson Johnson?

    I was disappointed in this book. It didnt feel like MARY B work. Also the person reading the book didnt fit with the characters. It makes all the difference when you are trying to give person with a country accent their "Country Accent".


    Would you ever listen to anything by Mary B. Morrison again?

    i love her and will always try or buy her books to listen to or read.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Allyson Johnson?

    yes. this one didnt fit for her.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to It's a Thin Line the most enjoyable?

    The way I could completely understand each character. I love when it takes a little while to figure them out what makes each character tick. But then I don't like to have to wait too long to figure it out. Once it was explained what was going on in the mind set of each of the main characters. I really felt like. I knew each one.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of It's a Thin Line?

    When the Mother found out about her Brain Tumor issue. I just lost my mother to pancreatic and lung caner. We found out what she had due to her getting a brain tumor. The recovery and the things her mother went thru, made me remember everything i went thru with my mom. It was like i re-lived the moment. It just shows that most things that you read. Come from True knowledge. In this instance. If you were to tell me, she made the whole way her mom's life played out. I wouldnt believe that she hadn't experienced or knew someone that experienced this.


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

    I think that I have listend to other books that are narrated by her. She did very well. I would listen to her on other books again.


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

    I WANTED to.. But I have trained myself to only listen during WORK hours. This way i am keeping my mind off the drama and issues in the every day Cubicle life.


    Any additional comments?

    I love and have read almost everything and now listen to That Kimberla Authors. BRAVO!
