    Tourist season is swinging into high gear in Miami. So are the activities of a bizarre terrorist group determined to keep the hapless "snowbirds" away. Armed with bombs, weed, and jumbled credos, they move toward their grand target, the Orange Bowl Parade, with plans to bring Miami and its tourist trade to a halt.

    "Great Book"
    Overall

    Tourist Season was so great. I have loved all of his books but this one was really really good. I could not wait to get back into the car to hear the rest of the CD. I love to laugh and this one had me laughing out loud several times. A 16 hour trip to FL. went by like a snap!

    "The city of San Francisco is being stalked by a huge shaved vampyre cat named Chet, and only I, Abby Normal, emergency backup mistress of the Greater Bay Area night, and my manga-haired love monkey, Foo Dog, stand between the ravenous monster and a bloody massacre of the general public. Whoa. And this is a love story? Yup."

    Melanie is a very special girl. Dr Caldwell calls her "our little genius". Every morning, Melanie waits in her cell to be collected for class. When they come for her, Sergeant keeps his gun pointing at her while two of his people strap her into the wheelchair. She thinks they don't like her. She jokes that she won't bite, but they don't laugh. Melanie loves school. She loves learning about spelling and sums and the world outside the classroom and the children's cells. She tells her favorite teacher all the things she'll do when she grows up. Melanie doesn't know why this makes Miss Justineau look sad.

    This was a great book, from the story to the voice reading. I don't normally write reviews....but I had to on this one. I was so taken by the story that I listened to it everywhere. I normally reserve audio books only for the car but this one I just could not stop. I wish this author had more published. Please take a chance on this.. It is not just a "zombie" book. It is more a story about a little girl and how she experiences things from a fresh point of view. I loved it.

    Georgina Kincaid has formidable powers. Immortality, seduction, shape-shifting into any human form she desires, walking in heels that would cripple mere mortals - all child's play to a succubus like her. Helping to plan her ex-boyfriend's wedding is a different story. Georgina isn't sure which is worse - that Seth is marrying another woman, or that Georgina has to run all over Seattle trying on bridesmaid dresses.

    Shelley says: "Didn't want it to end!"
    "perfect book"
    Overall

    Anything she writes is fantastic. I read all of her books and can not wait for the next one!

    St. Vladimir's Academy isn't just any boarding school - it's a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They've been on the run, but now they're being dragged back to St. Vladimir's - the very place where they're most in danger.

    Felicity Fairchild says: "Buy it! Vampire fan or not."
    "Awesome!!!!!!"

    I am 36 years old and I know this goes under "teen" books.....but I thought all of this series was so great. There were times that I could not leave my car because I had to find out what happened next. You won' t go wrong by purchasing this book and all her others. What an awesome find!!! I love it when I find a great author who can hold my attention this well!!! Buy it NOW!!!!!

    The girl everybody loves to hate has returned to the town she'd sworn to leave behind forever. As the rich, spoiled princess of Parrish, Mississippi, Sugar Beth Carey had broken hearts, ruined friendships, and destroyed reputations. But 15 years have passed, now she's come home, broke, desperate, and too proud to show it.

    Lydia says: "Another winner from Susan Elizabeth Phillips"
    "Listen to this Now!!!"
    Overall

    Listen to this NOW!!!! You won't be sorry. I promise you that. I have found my favorite Author and I can't wait to listen to all her other books. I only wish that I had started listening to them in the correct order. But thas okay. I am just glad to have found her. I am very picky about the books I listen too. I like them to be funny and interesting and I know that if I don't want to get out of the car then it is a GREAT book!! Read it!! I did not want to get out of the car on this one!
