    Myron Bolitar has always dreamed about the femme fatale walking into his office and asking for help. The woman standing in his doorway has killer curves all right: She’s eight months pregnant, which kind of ruins the fantasy. Former tennis star Suzze T and her rock star husband, Lex, are both clients, and over the years Myron has negotiated his share of contracts for the power pair. But now Lex has disappeared and Suzze is in tears, fearing the online rumors questioning the baby’s paternity have driven away Lex.

    What about Steven Weber’s performance did you like?

    It fit the book like a glove.


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

    Totally captured my attention.


    Any additional comments?

    For those of us who love Harlan Corbin and his sports agent books, you should love this one. Not only does it have the usual surprises but we find much personal information about his family and discover a giant surprise decision near the end. I found it to be like his other books and yet different ( in a good way) all at the same time. Do yourself a favor and get lost in Live Wire!!!

Desperate to save the Vatican from a powerful time bomb, Langdon joins forces in Rome with the beautiful and mysterious scientist Vittoria Vetra.

    What did you love best about Angels and Demons?

    This book was fantastic. Full of twists and turns that keep you turning page after page. This is the kind of dream book that I'm always on the search for. The book you can't stop listening to and stay up late into the night because its so good you just can't turn it off.

    In Broken Harbor, all but one member of the Spain family lies dead, and it’s up to Mick “Scorcher” Kennedy to find out why. Mick must piece together why their house is full of cameras pointed at holes in the walls and how a nighttime intruder bypassed all the locks. Meanwhile, the town of Broken Harbor holds something else for Mick: disturbing memories of a childhood summer gone terribly wrong.

    What disappointed you about Broken Harbor?

    I enjoyed listening to the book and the narrator. But the book was long and I had made a large time investment, around 18 hours I believe, and when the book ended I felt as if it ended mid book! It had gone on and on and on in great detail and then . . . . In what felt like two minutes . . . it ended. It left me feeling very unsatisfied.


    Would you recommend Broken Harbor to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. The ending left me hanging.


    What about Stephen Hogan’s performance did you like?

    I liked his accent and the quality of his voice.

    Our hero is Jack McEvoy, a Rocky Mountain News crime-beat reporter. As the story opens, Jack's twin brother, a Denver homicide detective, has just killed himself. Or so it seems. But when Jack begins to investigate the phenomenon of police suicides, a disturbing pattern emerges, and soon suspects that a serial murderer is at work.

    What disappointed you about The Poet?

    I did not finish this book. I read several reviews both on Audible and on other sites. None of the reviews mentioned that the book is told from the viewpoint of a pedophile or even mentioned that this was part of the story line. I was extremely disappointed to discover that this was the subject matter as this is not a topic I find entertaining.

    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?

    I found this book to be different from any other book I have read or listened to. It is hard to explain. There is very little scene description it is mostly what the characters are thinking or saying. But it is captivating and riveting. You can't put it down. It consumes you. It is a thrill ride of a read!!!!

    One question, a split-second decision, and Brian Darby lies dead on the kitchen floor. His wife, state police trooper Tessa Leoni, claims to have shot him in self-defense, and bears the bruises to back up her tale. For veteran detective D. D. Warren it should be an open-and-shut case. But where is their six-year-old daughter? As the homicide investigation ratchets into a frantic statewide search for a missing child, D. D. Warren must partner with former lover Bobby Dodge to break through the blue wall of police brotherhood, seeking to understand the inner workings of a trooper’s mind while also unearthing family secrets.

    Molly says: "Keeps you guessing all the way through!"

    This is probably a great book, and I always wondered what Nora Roberts books were like because they are so popular, so I decided to try one. It just was not a style that I liked. But, hey, you got to keep trying new things, right?


    What could Nora Roberts have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Not a thing. I am just not her customer.
