    I'm so excited that Audible is going to put the first books in this series online. They are a fun light listen and I really like the characters. The narrator is great as well. They aren't deep and engrossing like some books but it's great to listen to something that can make you laugh and just enjoy the act of listening!

    For Lieutenant Eve Dallas of the NYPSD, the job is a useful reminder of what she has to be grateful for this season. Hosting Roarke's big Irish family for the holiday may be challenging, but it’s a joyful improvement on her own dark childhood. Other couples aren’t as lucky as Eve and Roarke. The Reinholds, for example, are lying on the floor of their Downing Street apartment, stabbed and bludgeoned almost beyond recognition. Those who knew them are stunned - and even more heartbroken by the overwhelming evidence that they were murdered by their own son.

    I love these books. This one was as good as the rest. It was great that there was a lot about their family in this one, I really like that side of the stories. Her style is very much the same in all these books but she changes them up just enough to make you want to listen more. Narrator is also fantastic. I'm so used to the voices and the characters if any one else was to narrate the books it would definatly not be the same. Can't wait for the next one! To bad we can't get another one each month!

    FBI Special Agent Griffin Hammersmith, last seen in Backfire, has been recruited by Dillon Savich to join his unit in Washington, D.C. Savich sees something special in Hammersmith, an almost preternatural instinct for tracking criminals. While on his way to D.C., Hammersmith plans to visit his sister, Delsey, a student at Stanislaus School of Music in Maestro, Virginia. Before he arrives, he gets a phone call that Delsey has been found naked and unconscious, lying in a pool of blood, after a wild party. The blood isn’t hers - so to whom does it belong? Griffin must protect Delsey, but from whom?

    I LOVE these books, I wait all year for them to come out and this one left me flat. I'm not sure why, maybe it was the back and forth between 2 different cases and the new characters, i'm not sure, but it was not my favorite Catherine Coulter, I ended up disappointed. I feel really bad saying that. I love Savich & Sherlock, love the interpersonal relationships and this one didn't have it for me. Hopefully the next one will be back up to parr.

    This has been a great series and continues to be. I love a series with the return of key characters and the addition of new one. Love the way the characters evolve and change and grow, it's like an old friend when a new book comes out. Try these books you'll for sure like them.

    Charley Davidson isn’t your everyday, run-of-the-mill grim reaper. She’s more of a paranormal private eye/grim reaper extraordinaire. However, she gets sidetracked when the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, moves in next door. To further complicate matters, Reyes is her main suspect in an arson case. Charley has vowed to stay away from him until she can find out the truth... but then dead women start appearing in her apartment, one after another, each lost, confused, and terrified beyond reason.

    I LOVE this series. Charley Davidson is fantastic, love the banter between characters, it's so funny but at the same time serious. I have been waiting for this book to come out and after listening to it I'm going to go crazy waiting for the next one to come out. If you like Charlene Harris or Janet Evanovich, you will love this series. Read, listen enjoy!

    FBI Special Agent Kate O’Hare is known for her fierce dedication and discipline on the job, chasing down the world’s most wanted criminals and putting them behind bars. Her boss thinks she is tenacious and ambitious; her friends think she is tough, stubborn, and maybe even a bit obsessed. And while Kate has made quite a name for herself for the past five years the only name she’s cared about is Nicolas Fox - an international crook she wants in more ways than one.

    I love Janet Evanovich, love her books, Stephanie Plum is quite the character. Those books make you laugh out loud, this book does not. I keep thinking i'll get into it eventually but it's just not happening. I want to like it, just can't say I do. Characters are Ok, nothing special, just not grabbing me, hopefully others find it better.

But how can she trust that he won’t abandon her again - and her daughter, too?When bodyguard Justice Garrett was a young man, witness protection brought him to this idyllic town and he never forgot its warmth, or the sweet beauty of his childhood friend. He’s returned to open a defense academy, and the Patience he once knew is all grown up.

    Love this series, love these books. I could listen to them all again and probably would. Yes, they are predictable but who doesn't love a good love story! For me books that continue with a town or character just keep readers interested. New characters but old favorites. I love Tanya Eby as a narrator as well so this is a perfect match! Can't wait for the next one!

    Knitting and life. They're both about beginnings - and endings. That's why it makes sense for Lydia Goetz, owner of A Good Yarn on Seattle's Blossom Street, to offer a class called Knit to Quit. It's for people who want to quit something - or someone! - and start a new phase of their lives.

    I have always loved Debbie Macomber books and recently got into this series. I really enjoy the books but I have not loved the different narrators. I especially disliked this one. All the sentences ran together without breath and all the characters were the same voice. I love a good book and a good narrator really brings it to life. For me this one was almost painful to get through.

    Dana Birch vowed never to put herself at the mercy of a powerful man. She became a deputy so that she could take care of herself, and protect those she loved. Especially her best friends, the Titan sisters. Twenty years ago, Garth Duncan swore revenge on Jed Titan for abandoning Garth and his mother. Now he's back to fulfill that promise, even if Jed's daughters get caught in the crosshairs. All that stands between him and his goal is Dana, her gun, and a growing passion that can't be denied.

    I have enjoyed listening to this series so I purchased the last book to complete the series. I never thought to check the narrator. Why would they change the narrator for the last book in the series. You get so used to the voice, the characters. This narrator doesn't even sound at all like the other one, to breathy and so far most characters sound the same. Very dissapointed! I have to listen to hear the conclusion to the series but it's not going to be enjoyable!

    A woman has vanished while digging a dinosaur bone bed in the remote wilderness of Canada. Somehow, the only evidence has made its way to the inbox of Chief Medical Examiner Kay Scarpetta, over 2,000 miles away, in Boston. She has no idea why. But as events unfold with alarming speed, Scarpetta begins to suspect that the paleontologist's disappearance is connected to a series of crimes - much closer to home: a gruesome murder, inexplicable tortures, and trace evidence from the last living creatures of the dinosaur age.

    I traditionally love the Scarpetta books but this one took me awhile to get into. I actually stopped listening twice, but went back to it. In the end it was a good book but not as good as some of her books. A bit slow, not to much action as others. Performance was good just not sure I love the overall story that much.

    After a slow summer of chasing low-level skips for her cousin Vinnie's bail bonds agency, Stephanie Plum finally lands an assignment that could put her checkbook back in the black. Geoffrey Cubbin, facing trial for embezzling millions from Trenton's premier assisted-living facility, has mysteriously vanished from the hospital after an emergency appendectomy. Now it's on Stephanie to track down the con man. Unfortunately, Cubbin has disappeared without a trace, a witness, or his money-hungry wife. Rumors are stirring that he must have had help with the daring escape...or that maybe he never made it out of his room alive.
