    Knit Two returns to the Manhattan knitting store Walker & Daughter five years after the death of the store's owner, Georgia Walker. Georgia's daughter Dakota is now an 18 year old freshman at NYU, running the knitting store part-time with the help of the members of the Friday Night Knitting Club. Drawn together by their love for Dakota and the sense of family the club provides, each knitter is struggling with new challenges.

    Overall

    Was interesting to see what happens to these characters, but the book seems so passive. There is a lot of narrative of what the characters are thinking - or their circumstances - but not as much smart dialogue as in the first.
    I was disappointed.

  • Suicide Run: Three Harry Bosch Stories

    Here is LAPD Detective Harry Bosch as we've never seen him before, in three never-before-collected stories. In "Suicide Run", the apparent suicide of a beautiful young starlet turns out to be much more sinister than it seems. In "Cielo Azul", Bosch is haunted by a long-ago closed case: the murder of a teenage girl who was never identified. In "One Dollar Jackpot", Bosch works the murder of a professional poker player whose skills have made her more than one enemy.

    Have you listened to any of Len Cariou???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Really enjoy Len Cariou's voice. Recognizable right away in whatever form.


    Do you think Suicide Run needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    If Connelly has more short stories - it would be great.

    Mickey Bolitar’s year can’t get much worse. After witnessing his father’s death and sending his mom to rehab, he’s forced to live with his estranged uncle Myron and switch high schools. A new school comes with new friends and new enemies, and lucky for Mickey, it also comes with a great new girlfriend, Ashley. For a while, it seems like Mickey’s train wreck of a life is finally improving - until Ashley vanishes without a trace. Unwilling to let another person walk out of his life, Mickey follows Ashley’s trail into a seedy underworld that reveals that this seemingly sweet, shy girl isn’t who she claimed to be.

    kelly says: "Intricate plot, well read - really surprised!"
    "Development of new Character from Coben"

    What did you like best about Shelter? What did you like least?

    Not the best effort from Coben, but as a long time reader of his books, it is interesting to see the development of his story and characters over time. The reader must read the books in sequence to understand this.


    Was Shelter worth the listening time?

    It was OK.
