    When an attack leaves one of the members of the Women's Murder Club struggling for her life, the others fight to keep a madman behind bars before he hurts anyone else. And Lindsay Boxer and her new partner in the San Francisco police department try to stop a series of kidnappings: children and their nannies are being plucked off the streets.

    Overall

    I'm a big fan of Patterson and this installment of The Women's Murder Club series did not disappoint me. His characters are real and their lives are real, Boxer is growing/changing. If you want everything tied up with a bow you will be disappointed. I on the other hand can't wait for the next book. Keep up the good work Mr. Patterson and please do not make us wait to long for the continueing story of Lindsey Boxer and her gal pals.

    Eve Wilson's face was once scarred by a vicious assault. Terrified and ashamed, she escaped to the online realm, where she could choose the face she allowed people to see. Years later, her outer scars faded and inner scars buried, Eve has fought her way back to the real world and is determined to help others do the same. Now a graduate student moonlighting as a bartender, Eve researches the addictive powers of online communities.

    Would you consider the audio edition of I Can See You to be better than the print version?

    I prefer audio version. I tend to get involved in the book, you can multi-task when listening to an audiobook.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of I Can See You?

    Eve finally getting "her" happy ending.


    Which character – as performed by Elisabeth S. Rodgers – was your favorite?

    Hard to tell, I like all the characters but I was rooting for Eve and Noah


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    No movie, usually disappointed. Look at True Blood....


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoy Karen Rose's books. Some complain regarding the length-not so me. I like all the minusha that fleshes out the book. The more details the better, characters become people and you become vested in the book (series). I usually never pass up a Karen Rose audio.

    With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland. County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors’ blood and magic have flowed through generations - and where her destiny awaits.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this audiobook. It's Nora Roberts, her books always hold your attention.


    What other book might you compare Dark Witch to and why?

    Try not to compare books, tend to be misleading.


    What about Katherine Kellgren’s performance did you like?

    Regarding the narrator: I believe she's getting a bad rap. To some it might seem "over the top" but to me she was rather compelling. I definitely know the difference between a really bad narrator and a narrator that has their own style. I like her style.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    N/A


    Any additional comments?

    I almost didn't select this book because of the above reviews-thankfully I followed my own instincts. Reviews sometimes can do more damage than good.
