    She was the mysterious woman in the long black cloak. He was the sexy guy next door. They shared a common wall between their Capitol Hill townhouses and not much else...until disaster scored a direct hit on the mystery woman's bedroom and the sexy guy's heart. He baked her a cake, she learned to throw a football, there were some misunderstandings in the living room, some mishaps in the yard, and some romantic moments everywhere.

    I usually rip through Evanovich's stories, but this one did not keep me sitting in a parked car with the motor running. It was predictable, scattered and not funny.

    Psmith and his friend Mike are sent by their fathers to work in the City. But work is the last thing on Psmith's mind; surely there are more interesting things to do with the day than spend it in a bank? Unfortunately the natives aren't conducive to his socialising within work hours, but all's fair in love and work as the monocled Old Etonian, with a little grudging help from Mike, begins to rope in allies in order to reform the bank manager and make him A Decent Member of Society.

    What did you love best about Psmith in the City?

    How can you not like Psmith??? It is such a checkout from reality to spend time with him.

    The idyll of Blandings Castle is about to be disturbed, for the Hon. Freddie Threepwood is poised to make his debut as a jewel thief. Freddie, however, is not alone: Blandings is simply brimming with criminals and impostors all intent on stealing Aunt Constance's 20,000 pound diamond necklace. It is left to the debonair Psmith, with his usual aplomb, to unscramble the passion, problems, and identities, of one and all.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Leave it to Psmith?

    It wasn't a single moment, just a few hours of enjoyable fluff.


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

    Half and half. It was one I wanted to go on longer. It isn't a page turner, like some mysteries, but a pleasant escape, like a picnic on a perfect Spring day.

    Dubbed the American Tolkien by Time magazine, George R. R. Martin has earned international acclaim for his monumental cycle of epic fantasy. Now the number-one New York Times best-selling author delivers the fifth book in his spellbinding landmark series - as both familiar faces and surprising new forces vie for a foothold in a fragmented empire.

    What would have made A Dance with Dragons better?

    I enjoyed the Game of Thrones, thought the second book was OK, but maybe was burnt out by this one. I found it predictable, and the characters I wanted to know about were basically gone. I didn't even finish it.


    Has A Dance with Dragons turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Probably, unless I go back and finish it in a few years


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Narrator was fine

    The tomb of China’s First Emperor, guarded by an underground army of terra-cotta warriors, has remained sealed for more than 2,000 years. Though it’s regarded as one of the greatest archaeological sites in the world, the Chinese government won’t allow anyone to open it. Why? That question is at the heart of a dilemma faced by former Justice Department operative Cotton Malone, whose life is shattered when he receives an anonymous note carrying an unfamiliar Web address.

    Jackie says: "Fascinating Ride!"
    "enough action"
    Overall

    I liked the effort to present a feel of the significance and vastness ancient Chinese culture. It was an excellent foil to a straightforward "guns and badguys" book.

    Mikael Blomkvist, crusading journalist and publisher of the magazine Millennium, has decided to publish a story exposing an extensive sex trafficking operation between Eastern Europe and Sweden, implicating well-known and highly placed members of Swedish society, business, and government. On the eve of publication, the two reporters responsible for the story are brutally murdered.

    David says: "irritatingly engrossing"
    "too bad"
    Overall

    "The Girl" books sets the bar so high. I think it will be a while before I find a story as amazing.

  • The Glass Rainbow: A Dave Robicheaux Novel

    Why we think it’s a great listen: When it comes to author/narrator pairings, nobody tops James Lee Burke and Will Patton in the Robicheaux thrillers. Beloved Burke hero Detective Dave Robicheaux here returns to New Iberia to solve a series of grisly murders. Seven young women in neighboring Jefferson Davis Parish have been brutally murdered. While the crimes have all the telltale signs of a serial killer, the death of Bernadette Latiolais, a high-school honor student, doesn’t fit.

    Gardner says: "Best Yet... Almost"
    "oh well, no one is perfect"
    Overall

    It is likely I have read or listened to all of Burke's books. In my opinion this is not his finest moment, but still better than many other in the genre. It would not deter me from reading another.

    Walker & Daughter is Georgia Walker's little yarn shop, tucked into a quiet storefront on Manhattan's Upper West Side. The Friday Night Knitting Club is the ad hoc creation of some of Georgia's regulars, who stroll into the shop looking for tips on knitting and end up finding much, much more. Once a week, they gather to work on their latest projects and to chat - and occasionally clash - over their stories of love, life, and everything in between.

    In A Short History of Nearly Everything, Bill Bryson takes his ultimate journey - into the most intriguing and consequential questions that science seeks to answer. It's a dazzling quest, as this insatiably curious writer attempts to understand everything that has transpired from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization.

    Brent says: "This audio edition is abridged!"
    "Brilliant"
    Overall

    An intense trip through the history of science with one of the few who could make it funny and enthralling. My new passion is slime mold. I will listen to the whole thing again!
