    This story held my interest from the beginning, despite the rather lame accents the narrator used on occasion. I will definitely look for more by this author.

    Story

    It was hard for me to enjoy this story, because the narrator sounded like she might have been reading the weather. With so little inflection in her voice, it was often hard to follow the dialogue.

    Story

    I expected this to be a feel-good book, but there was too much (admittedly true-to-life) sufering that this dog (and others) endured at the hands of humans. I expected a book written from a dog's perspective to be a feel-good book, but this was not it. I stopped listening because I couldn't take any more.

Defending teenaged runaway Jessie Whitewater against a shoplifting charge, new attorney Tami Taylor must determine why Jessie insists on lying to her—and why the teen is so terrified. But when the hand of evil strikes close to home, Tami finds herself gripped by the same fear.

    Daphne Sweeten left Paris - and a job she loved - to marry the man of her dreams in the U.S. But when he stands her up on their wedding day, she’s left reeling and senseless. Literally. She’s been trained as a perfume creator and now her sense of smell has disappeared along with her fiancé!

    She has to figure out why her nose isn’t working, fix it, and get back to Paris. Meanwhile, she’ll rely on her chemistry skills and just hope her new boss at Gibraltar Products, Jesse, doesn’t notice her failing senses. They’ll be working together on household fragrances, not posh perfumes. How hard can it be?

    This is the first of three I've read by this author, and this was my favorite. I've read other reviews indicating that this was a switch from the authors romance roots, and if that's the case, then it was a good call. The narrator's voice grated on my nerves a bit with some of the characters, but that is likely a personal preference.

    Anthony Spencer is egotistical, proud of being a self-made business success at the peak of his game, even though the cost of winning was painfully high. A cerebral hemorrhage leaves Tony comatose in a hospital ICU. He 'awakens' to find himself in a surreal world, a 'living' landscape that mirrors dimensions of his earthly life, from the beautiful to the corrupt.

Four years later in the midst of his Great Sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend. Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack on a wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    I wish I had known how foul the language was in this book. I never would have wasted the money on a book I ended up trashing because I couldn't tolerate the constant potty-mouth. Here and there for effect is one thing, but this was ridiculous.It's a shame, because I heard it was a good storyline.

    Dr. Laura fans tend to love her direct, no-nonsense yet caring approach, and this book did not disappoint. I enjoyed her examples, and having her narrate the book was a great touch. I can't imagine listening to anyone else narrate her book.

    Story

    I quit listening when he essentially said that churches have given people so many issues that he has a thriving practice. I try to encourage people to incorporate their religious beliefs into their therapy, not get them to abandon them as one of his examples seemed to do, so this book offended me both personally and professionally. I know this book has been popular for a very long time, but I sure don't get it.
