    Dmytryk Knight was a respectable man who had followed the blueprints for the American Dream: go to college, find the girl of your dreams, get married, buy a house on the affluent side of Detroit. He’d done it all by the book. But when a crippling recession annihilates the auto industry, Dmytryk and his wife, Cora, suddenly find themselves without jobs and in foreclosure. And after two years of taking any job they can find and trying to live honestly, they realize that integrity just doesn’t pay the bills.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. The main character has the morals of a saint but is so easily corrupted and then seems to lose it by seeing and talking to ghosts......totally unbelievable.

    Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    What did you love best about The Witness?

    The fact that the author really lets you get to know the character as a teenager so that you can understand why she lives the way she does and this also helps you understand why she is so socially awkward.


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

    The plot reminds you a lot of the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo so it's not a brand new plot but the way that it is written keeps you wanting to know what will happen next. For instance, the way the Sheriff pursues her and wears down her resistance is both funny and sweet. At first I was annoyed by his persistance, and his mother's, but then I was rooting for them to get together and stay together. This kind of makes you forget that she needs to lay low and not blow her cover so she will be able to put down roots and won't have to keep running.


    What about Julia Whelan’s performance did you like?

    I enjoyed her tone and the way that she was convincing in both the male voices and female voices.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did and then I didn't. I did because it was very funny, interesting, and entertaining but then I didn't because I didn't want it to end. LOL....


    Any additional comments?

    I haven't read but 2 Nora Roberts novels so far but I like her writing style and the way she introduces and develops her characters. I also like all of the factual details that she brings to the story lines. I think I'm hooked!

Now, Ana and Christian have it all - love, passion, intimacy, wealth, and a world of possibilities for their future. But Ana knows that loving her Fifty Shades will not be easy.

    If you could sum up Fifty Shades Freed in three words, what would they be?

    Captivating, Exciting, Thrilling


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fifty Shades Freed?

    One of the most memorable moments was when Ana delivered the news that she was pregnant.


    What about Becca Battoe’s performance did you like?

    I thought she had good vocal tone and inflection during her performance.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Parts of this book made me laugh and parts made me cry.


    Any additional comments?

    The entire Fifty Shades story was fresh, interesting, and very entertaining! I liked the development of the characters, but some of the details I could have done without. However, I would have liked for the story of the wedding to be better detailed. Though the ending was predictable, all of the crooks and emotional turns that the story and characters underwent made it hard to stop listening and left me wanting to know more about their future together. Me personally, I think there should be at least one more Fifty Shades book told entirely from Christian's point of view!
