    New York Times best-selling author Carl Weber is a master at portraying unforgettable characters and complex, passionate relationships. Voluptuous Loraine Farrow is as successful as she is curvy, but life is never easy when you want to have your cake and eat it too. With her husband Leon confronting issues from his past, trouble arises on the homefront - and more drama is on the way in the form of Michael, an ex-lover desperate to rekindle his and Loraine’s once torrid flame.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is - she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

    Not really well spent. Did not keep my attention. I suspect the movie will be better.

    Not really although I have her next 2 books on my wish list.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    No


    Do you think Divergent needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Absolutely.

    There's always a man around the corner, and church trustee James Black should know - he's usually that very man. Meet a deliciously dysfunctional family in this riveting new novel, filled with intrigue, sex, and surprises.

    Story
    Where does Up to No Good rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book was more predictable but still enjoyable.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I pretty much predicted the ending especially with James and his son. His son was kind of crazy!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When James recognized Sonya was a gold-digger. Glad that he was hurt like he hurt other woman.


    Who was the most memorable character of Up to No Good and why?

    James. I admire his honesty even though he was a "man-whore" but he was honest about it. A lot of the reasons why James' children was so crazy and had difficulties trusting others in relationships is because of his behavior toward women. It's no wonder his son went nuts!

    On the surface, it appears that Sunny has got it all: looks, money, a beautiful home, a healthy daughter, and friends who love her. But Sunny has a secret—something she hasn’t even told her best friend. The truth is Sunny is unhappy. She still misses her beloved Dorian and worries that no other man will ever captivate her the way he did. She’s dated some very powerful and successful men since Dorian’s death, but will she ever find love again?

    Story
    Where does White Lines II: Sunny rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    What I liked about this audiobook is the narrator and the way she distinguished between the characters. This book kept my attention all the time. I enjoy books about being a survivor of your circumstances. I would rank this as a 5 star listen.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Tracy Brown? Why or why not?

    Yes. I hope she writes a White Lines III as this book did end abruptly and left you hanging.


    What does Allyson Johnson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Yes she does. I really liked the way she can change her voice.


    If you could take any character from White Lines II: Sunny out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I would take Jada. She appears to be a more interesting character.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoy Tracy Brown's books. The only problem is her abrupt endings that kind of leave you hanging. Now I am hoping there will be a White Lines III because I want to know what happened to Sunny, did Jada get married, how is her son doing, etc?
