    Freddie “the Cheerleader,” Phyllis “the Class President,” and Renetta “the Fat Girl” ended their friendship back in high school. So it’s a surprise to all of them when they end up connecting at their 30-year high school reunion. They’ve all changed since those harsh yet tender high school years, and each one of them has her own deliciously scandalous secret. But when those secrets threaten to come to light—and possibly tear apart their less than perfect, but generally content lives—they band together in their sisterhood to stand and fight to keep what’s theirs

    "good summer read"

    This is a summer chick read. a good story about friends and their secrets. I thought the reader did a very good job

    King Peggy chronicles the astonishing journey of an American secretary who suddenly finds herself king to a town of 7,000 souls on Ghana's central coast, half a world away. Upon arriving for her crowning ceremony in beautiful Otuam, she discovers the dire reality: there's no running water, no doctor, and no high school, and many of the village elders are stealing the town's funds. To make matters worse, her uncle (the late king) sits in a morgue awaiting a proper funeral in the royal palace, which is in ruins.

    Growing up with telepathic abilities, Sookie Stackhouse realized early on there were things she'd rather not know. And now that she's an adult, she also realizes that some things that she knows about, she'd rather not see—like Eric Northman feeding off another woman. A younger one. There's a thing or two she'd like to say about that, but she has to keep quiet—Felipe de Castro, the Vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), is in town.

    I have read or listened to ALL of EJD'S BOOKS!! Iv'e enjoyed them all..I have noticed that Sex is very prominate and descriptive in his works for the past few years! I ain't complaining you just need not listen aloud in your car! I have forgotten myself & rolled down my window & a few HOT description of sexy narration escaped for all to hear!

    That said, sometimes sex does overtake the story line. In this story I didn't particularly care for the characters ( too superficial Hollywood types) but the Sex scenes were Hot!!

    Can't wait til the next book, different characters I hope...I'll have my glass of wine ready!!

    Alexander McCall Smith’s No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series has become a worldwide phenomenon thanks to the appeal of endearing protagonist Precious Ramotswe and the author’s charmingly quirky prose. In this 13th installment, Mma Ramotswe’s attention is focused on a pesky disciplinary problem at her adopted daughter’s school - while Grace Makutsi adjusts to wedded bliss and the famed Clovis Andersen arrives in Botswana looking for more than bush tea.

    What did you love best about The Limpopo Academy of Private Detection?

    I always love the easy flow of this series. The people and story line are like old friends that you care for. The mystery is never so far off base that is unbelievable, but everyday troubles and solutions.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    i loved the scenes when Grace as usual is Miss Busy- Body- Know-It-All and states her unsolicited opinions


    Any additional comments?

    I love the story and really love the narrator Lisette Lescat.
    I would love to see the series back on HBO..LOVED JILL SCOTT IN THE PRECIOUS ROLE

    Before Stephanie can even step foot off Flight 127, Hawaii to Newark, she’s knee deep in trouble. Her dream vacation turned into a nightmare, and she’s flying back to New Jersey solo. Worse still, her seatmate never returned to the plane after the L.A. layover. Now he’s dead, in a garbage can, waiting for curbside pickup. His killer could be anyone. And a ragtag collection of thugs and psychos, not to mention the FBI, are all looking for a photograph the dead man was supposed to be carrying.

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    What about Craig Wasson???s performance did you like?

    I was moved often by the things you could change in history and how the results are not what you always think

    Unraveling the madness behind L.A.’s most baffling and brutal homicides is what sleuthing psychologist Alex Delaware does best. And putting the good doctor through his thrilling paces is what mystery fiction’s #1 bestselling master of psychological suspense Jonathan Kellerman does with incomparable brilliance. Kellerman’s universally acclaimed novels blend the addictive rhythms of the classic police procedural with chilling glimpses into the darkest depths of the human condition. For the compelling proof, look no further than Victims....

    Would you listen to Victims again? Why?

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Victims?

    I enjoy the friendship and development of trust between Milo and Alex


    Which character ??? as performed by John Rubinstein ??? was your favorite?

    Rubenstein hits every character just right...I can't think of anyone who could do a better job.


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

    I was moved when Milo was rescued by alex and couldn't quite face his friend to thank him or admit how vulnerable he was to dying. He was no longer the "protector".

    Paranormal private eye. Grim reaper extraordinaire. Whatever. Charley Davidson is back in Darynda Jones' Third Grave Dead Ahead! And she’s drinking copious amounts of caffeine to stay awake because, every time she closes her eyes, she sees him: Reyes Farrow, the parthuman, part-supermodel son of Satan. Yes, she did imprison him for all eternity, but come on.

    Network TV can be murder. Just ask Billy Blessing, famous for his smile, charm, and ability to survive the shark tank that is high-stakes morning TV. His career has just taken a very dangerous turn, however: his show's perky cohost, Gin McCauley, has launched into some brass-knuckles contract negotiations. And then the network's head honcho is murdered in his luxury apartment - and an ambitious D.A. decides that Billy is to blame.

    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Since I knew the main character wasn't the murderer...I was curious to find out from the vast characters who was..It's always curious to find out how many people really don't care for you and may want...you dead!


    Which character ??? as performed by Al Roker ??? was your favorite?

    I enjoyed the main character...The harried chef and talk show host was fun


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

    I enjoy cooking novels and learning tips

    good job by Roker as writer and narrarator
