    A music therapist who thrives on helping others, Kendra Michaels cherishes the ordinary life she has achieved after stem cell surgery restored her sight. The skills she perfected during those sightless years - the ability to pick up the most subtle audio, olfactory, and tactile cues in the world around her - coupled with her laser-sharp mind - have made her a uniquely potent observer and problem solver. Kendra’s uncanny way of connecting the dots is as baffling to law enforcement as it is legendary.

    What disappointed you about Close Your Eyes?

    Rather amateurish, both in writing and in narrator's performance. The story plot was interesting however, the dialogue of the characters lacks dept and maturity. The narration did not help the lack of maturity.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Iris Johansen and Roy Johansen again?

    Sorry, not unless it makes the best seller's list.


    What didn’t you like about Elisabeth Rodgers’s performance?

    Immature inflection.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Sorry, not really!

  • The Glass Rainbow: A Dave Robicheaux Novel

    Why we think it’s a great listen: When it comes to author/narrator pairings, nobody tops James Lee Burke and Will Patton in the Robicheaux thrillers. Beloved Burke hero Detective Dave Robicheaux here returns to New Iberia to solve a series of grisly murders. Seven young women in neighboring Jefferson Davis Parish have been brutally murdered. While the crimes have all the telltale signs of a serial killer, the death of Bernadette Latiolais, a high-school honor student, doesn’t fit.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Glass Rainbow to be better than the print version?

    Did not read the print version but Will Patton does such a great job with each of the characters, especially Clete.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Definitely the suspense.


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

    Everything! Will Patton truly captures the cadence and delivers on inflection.


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

    I love to listen to Clete's ramps.

    Story

    Growing up, the only place tomboy Thayer Wentworth felt at home was at her summer camp - Camp Sherwood Forest in the North Carolina Mountains. It was there that she came alive and where she met Nick Abrams, her first love...and first heartbreak.

    A User says: "Not so great"
    "Burnt Mountain by Anne Rivers Siddons"
    Overall

    While I didn't truly appreciate the disjointed and perhaps a bit too tragic story I won't stop reading Anne Rivers Siddons because she really is an excellent writer and author.
