    Grave Sight draws listeners into the intriguing world of Harper Connelly, a woman with a unique gift: she can "see" the deceased and how they died. A teenage girl from a small Ozarks town is missing and feared dead. Hired by local police, Harper locates the girl's body in a nearby forest. But there's more than one corpse in those woods, and the second one raises questions no one wants to ask.

    Overall

    This was the second in the Harper Connolly series I have "read". I messed up in the order, but it didn't make a ton of difference. Since I so loved the Sookie Stackhouse mysteries, I was excited about starting this series. It took be just a bit to get into the story, but the storyline was good,Harper's "gift" is so unusual, the characters well developed and I had a hard time stopping the listen. I basically listened to it non-stop. The narration was the only problem I had as I felt it was too unemotional and made the main character seem very bland. It also made the relationship between Harper and her brother seemed strained, although based on the book that is not the case. The humorous remarks in the story had little emotion due to the narration. All in all, I would recommend this book and the series. It was very enjoyable and I loved the premise!

    A smashing, award-winning debut novel that introduces Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper Charley sees dead people. That’s right, she sees dead people. And it’s her job to convince them to “go into the light.” But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (i.e. murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice.

    What a great story this author has given us and of coure, Lorelei King's narration is always perfect. I loved this book and look forward to more from this author!

    Once a devoted children's librarian, Jane Jameson now works at a rundown occult bookstore. Once a regular gal, she's now a vampire. And instead of a bride, she's an eternal bridesmaid -- which leads her to question where exactly her relationship with her irresistibly sexy sire, Gabriel, is headed. Mercurial, enigmatic, apparently commitment-phobic vampires are nothing if not hard to read.

    Kickez says: "A great continuation from the 1st book!"

    Overall

    I just completed all three of the Nice Girls books. I stumbled across this author and decided to give her and this series a try. I was surprised how much I thoroughly enjoyed it. The writing was amusing and the narrator was a pleasure. If you are looking for a book to read for total enjoyment, these are the books for you! Loved them all.

    Maybe it was the Shenanigans gift certificate that put her over the edge. When children's librarian and self-professed nice girl Jane Jameson is fired by her beastly boss and handed $25 in potato skins instead of a severance check, she goes on a bender that's sure to become Half Moon Hollow legend. On her way home, she's mistaken for a deer, shot, and left for dead.

    In the late summer of a long-ago year, a killer arrived in a small city. His name was Alton Turner Blackwood, and in the space of a few months he brutally murdered four families. His savage spree ended only when he himself was killed by the last survivor of the last family, a 14-year-old boy. Half a continent away and two decades later, someone is murdering families again, re-creating in detail Blackwood’s crimes.

    "Finally, a Dean Koontz that reads as a Dean Koontz"
    Overall

    I have been a Dean Koontz fan for more years than I can count. I had been disappointed in some of his newer stuff, and preperred to re-read his older stories.
    Finally! Here is a new one that was suspensful, great storyline and the dialog was believable. However, in some places in the story, I did get a little confused but was able to catch up quickly.

    I felt this was Vintage Koontz and it was very enjoyable. I may read it again next week!

  • The Glass Rainbow: A Dave Robicheaux Novel

    Story

    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"
    "My New Favorite Hero! Jack Reacher....MOVE OVER!"
    Overall

    This was the first James Lee Burke book I have read. I am now starting to read all of the Dave books.
    Dave is flawed and works with a flawed Clete, which makes them very realistic. They are both "everyday" heros and the novel was so well written and suspenseful, that I was unable to stop listening because I couldn't wait to see what happened!

    At first, I thought the narrator was a little hard to understand but as the book went along, I realized his narration helped make the book.

    What a great read and I am looking forward to more Dave Robicheaux novels.

    Redemption isn't a word Jim Heron knows much about - his specialty is revenge, and to him, sin is all relative. But everything changes when he becomes a fallen angel and is charged with saving the souls of seven people from the seven deadly sins. Vin diPietro long ago sold his soul to his business, and he's good with that - until fate intervenes in the form of a tough-talking Harley-riding, self-professed savior.

    M. M. Robinson says: "Entertaining listen"
    "Love this new series"
    Overall

    This first book was really entertaining and enjoyable. I can't wait until the next one in the series!

    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.

    Curatina says: "Great listening!"
    "WHAT A GREAT BOOK!"
    Overall

    I thought The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was excellent and was not disappointed with this book. The narrator was wonderful and the story was completely entralling. I had problem with the names (Swedish) but that was minor.
    I hope he writes more with these characters! I want more of his stories!

    A summer at his grandparents' South Dakota ranch is not 11-year-old Cooper Sullivan's idea of a good time. But things are a bit more bearable now that he's discovered the neighbor girl, Lil Chance, and her homemade batting cage. Even horseback riding isn't as awful as Coop thought it would be. Each year, with Coop's annual summer visit, their friendship deepens from innocent games to stolen kisses, but there is one shared experience that will forever haunt them: the terrifying discovery of a hiker's body.

    A User says: "black hills"
    "Anti-Climatic and Predictible"
    Overall

    I usually enjoy Nora Roberts but I felt this story dragged and focused on the relationship of the main characters more than what you knew was going to happen eventually. When it did happen, it was not a surprise and the ending was anti-climatic.
    I was disappointed in a story I thought would be very enjoyable.

    Dispatched by the President to report on the state of troubled Kosovo, his trusted agent , Blake Johnson, runs into a military man there named Harry Miller, who has the same task from the British Prime Minister. They band together just in time to stop a Russian officer from torching a mosque - or rather, Miller stops him, with a bullet to the forehead.

    Jesse says: "Suspended in mystery"
    "Couldn't get through Part 1 of this book."
    Overall

    I tried..I really did. The narration was dull, several times the same paragraph was re-read.
    There were so many characters I couldn't keep them all straight and the dialog went on and on. Thank goodness I got this at the $5.95 special price!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    Pamela Murphy says: "COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN"
    "WHAT A GREAT BOOK!"
    Overall

    I loved this story and this book! The names were hard to keep track of, (for me), since they were unfamiliar...but I thought the narration was good and the story was remarkable.
    I can't wait to read the next book!
