    Carlotta Wren's life hasn't turned out as she planned. She didn't plan for her parents to skip bail for a white-collar crime, leaving her to raise her brother. She didn't plan on her blue-blood fiance dumping her. And she didn't plan on still being single 10 years later, working at Neiman Marcus, with no idea where her fugitive parents are. Until her lovable brother is arrested, and the hunky cop decides to reopen her parents' case.

    Story

    I enjoy a real variety of fiction, so I always try to keep a few series of books going at the same time, depending on my mood - I have loved the Janet Evanovich books for my "light reading", but had read everything she had, so I started searching for "new to me" authors. I did enjoy this book, although, I am sure as the series goes on and the characters are fleshed out/developed more thoroughly, I will get more into the story line. All in all, I do not regret this purchase, and look forward to reading the next in the series.

    Only minutes after Abbie Elliot and her three best friends step off of a private helicopter, they enter the most luxurious, sumptuous, sensually pampering hotel they have ever been to. Their lavish presidential suite overlooks Monte Carlo, and they surrender: to the sun and pool, to the sashimi and sake, to the Bruno Paillard champagne. In the morning's harsh light, Abbie awakens on a yacht, surrounded by police. Something awful has happened - something impossible, unthinkable. Abbie, Winnie, Serena, and Bryah are arrested and accused of the foulest crime imaginable.

    Story

    James Patterson is another of my favorites, but, as with a few other of my favorite series, I have grown tired of Alex Cross. However, I have continued to read all the stand alones, and even some I missed through the years. "Guilty Wives" is another winner, another one you won't want to stop listening to. The story is wonderful, a fun filled girls weekend with unexpected deadly consequences. As for how it happened, let's just say that jealousy can be a horrible thing......give this book a listen - you won't be dissappointed!

    Three people living lives they never wanted, hiding secrets that even those closest to them would never suspect, will find that the past never truly fades away. Even as the terrible consequences of long-ago events crash together in the present and threaten to ruin lives, they will come to the startling realization that they may not want to forget the past at all.

    Story

    I love Harlan Coben, but to be honest, I had grown tired of Bolitar, so I had stayed away for a while. This stand alone novel reminded me of why I fell so hard for his books in the first place. I couldn't stop listening after the first few minutes. Worth the credit!

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Story

    I have been reading Stephen King for over twenty five years, and loved his books.....back then. In all honesty, he "lost" me for the last ten years or so, as I couldn't read and like pretty much anything he put out during that time. I really thought that he was done, had given up. Then a couple years ago, I happened upon "Duma Key", and decided to give him another try. What a pleasant surprise! I could tell that Stephen was on the way back. I also enjoyed finding "Cell", and "Under The Dome". With those recent "successes" in mind, I was anticipating "11-22-63" to be a "decent" read. Boy was I WRONG!! It wasn't a "decent" read, it was WONDERFUL! With all the rich detail that I had loved in earlier reads ("IT"), I knew that Stephen King was back! This story is so unlike anything else I have read of his in other ways, but it kept me very interested from the beginning, and made me think throughout. I have never been a fan of time travel sort of literature, but Mr King has made me rethink that statement, I LOVED this book, and highly recommend it to Stephen King fans from "AGO" ......(listen to the book, you'll get it)

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Story

    Wow! I couldn't stop telling people about this book! This was also another series that I was not sure if i would like, and I was right...didn't like it...LOVED IT! The story was one of survival, perseverance, and fighting the system. The characters were very well developed, especially for youths. I guess i don't really know what to say exactly about this book, except to say that you won't be sorry for listening to it!

    Dexter Morgan appears to be the perfect gentleman. He is handsome and polite, and has been in a relationship for nearly a year and a half. Yet appearances can be deceiving, for Dexter is a serial killer who has slain many people. But in this tale, he's the good guy, for there is one little twist: Dexter only snuffs out other murderers. When another serial killer, with an eerily similar style, starts grabbing headlines, Dexter has a fairly morbid thought. Am I being challenged?

    Story

    I was not sure at first that I would like this series, but after exhausting all of the books in my "comfort zone" I decided to give the Dexter series a try. It did take me a little while to acclimate myself to a main character so seemingly without "feelings", but once I did, the story was wonderfully different and exciting...can't wait to listen to book 2!
