    England, 1959: Laurel Nicolson is 16 years old, dreaming alone in her childhood tree house during a family celebration at their home, Green Acres Farm. She spies a stranger coming up the long road to the farm and then observes her mother, Dorothy, speaking to him. And then she witnesses a crime.

    Would you listen to The Secret Keeper again? Why?

    Yes - knowing how it turns out I found pay more attention to the foretelling elements.

  • Joyland

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 33 mins)

    Set in a small-town North Carolina amusement park in 1973, Joyland tells the story of the summer in which college student Devin Jones comes to work as a carny and confronts the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying child, and the ways both will change his life forever. Joyland is a brand-new novel and has never previously been published.

    Cozy Reader says: "The sweest and creepiest coming of age story!"
    "decent but not his best book by far"

    Where does Joyland rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Its a good book, and interesting, but lacks the real gripping narative I've come to expect from Stephen King. The elements of the mystery at the heart of the story seemed undeveloped, I found myself being uninterested in learning who the real killer was and felt the ending was rather rushed.

  • The Winter Sea

    History has all but forgotten.... In the spring of 1708, an invading Jacobite fleet of French and Scottish soldiers nearly succeeded in landing the exiled James Stewart in Scotland to reclaim his crown. Now, Carrie McClelland hopes to turn that story into her next best-selling novel. Settling herself in the shadow of Slains Castle, she creates a heroine named for one of her own ancestors and starts to write. But then she discovers her novel is more fact than fiction....

    What could Susanna Kearsley have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Given it some sort of hook - I found myself tuning out for 30 minutes at a time - none of the characters were all that interesting.
