    When FBI agent Grayson Kincaid first encounters Olivia MacKenzie, she makes quite an impression. The beautiful, tough young attorney has stumbled into the middle of an FBI sting operation and reduced it to chaos. Months of surveillance and careful planning down the drain, Kincaid’s partner is furious and lets Olivia know that she’s ticked off the wrong guy. After all, he’s FBI. But Olivia isn’t intimidated by his partner’s bullying because she’s something even scarier...she’s IRS.

    What did you like best about Sweet Talk? What did you like least?

    I love all of Julie Garwood's books. I just wish I had read the book on this one instead of listening to it. The narrater has an annoying habit of ending words and sentences with an upward tinny pitch.

    There isn't really any difference in her voice when she is narrating female dialog and giving background information. Her male voices are not very good.

    The story is good except the author tells you the main character has a "touch of Asthma" but through out the book she is desperately seeking her emergency inhaler. This got old fast. I think she used the emergency inhaler several time each day. All I could think of was the main character needs to see a pulmonary specialist.

    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 listen to Dark Witch again? Why?

    I am only half way through the audio book. I love the story but I have had to stop several times to rest my ear drums. The narrator keeps yelling in a high pitch voice through most of the book so far.It's like listening to a high pitched drama queen narrate a good book.

    Might be a better book to curl up on the couch and read instead.


    What didn’t you like about Katherine Kellgren’s performance?

    Stop yelling!

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    Can say much about the book without giving away any of the twist and turns this author takes you on! Great book!
