    Marcia Brady, eldest daughter on television's The Brady Bunch, had it all. But what viewers didn't know about the always sunny, perfect Marcia was that off-screen, her real-life counterpart, Maureen McCormick was living a very different - and not-so-wonderful - life. Maureen tells the shocking and inspirational true story of the beloved teen and the woman she became.

    Story

    This book was difficult to listen to at times but it was a good story. I have never read "Greg Brady's" story but Maureen McCormicks was rough. She battled through a lot of tough times but being a fan of her's, I am glad that she did find some peace.

    If you want tons of gossip about other celebrities, this isn't really the book. It does discuss the other Brady Bunch members but it stays true to being her story. Overall it was a good book but definitely a story I can only listen to once.

    Where there’s smoke there’s fire, and no one knows this better than New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum. Dead bodies are showing up in shallow graves on the empty construction lot of Vincent Plum Bail Bonds. No one is sure who the killer is, or why the victims have been offed, but what is clear is that Stephanie’s name is on the killer’s list. Short on time to find evidence proving the killer’s identity, Stephanie faces further complications when her family and friends decide that it’s time for her to choose between her longtime off-again-on-again boyfriend and the other bad boy in her life....

    Story

    Overall I liked this story. I found it a bit predictable as I was able to guess the killer pretty early on but it was still a good listen. Lorelei King does a good job narrating, especially Lula's part.

    A serial killer is hunting the Pacific Northwest, murdering victims in a gruesome and spectacular way. The local police suspect "monsters" are involved, and have called in Anita Blake and Edward, U.S. Marshals who really know their monsters, to catch the killer.

    I am so happy that Hamilton moved away from her usual "nothing but sex" writing. Overall, the story was good and the performance was pretty spot on. Thank goodness Edward and Olaf are in this book!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Story

    I started this audiobook a few days after seeing the movie. The movie was good- I got teary eyed a few times. As in most cases, however, the book far exceeded the movie. The narrators were spot on! Especially Octavia Spencer, who also played Minny in the movie. I found myself not wanting the book to end.

    I usually buy the e-books and the audio version so that I can listen while in the car and continue at a faster pace when at home. In this case the story was so well narrated that I only wanted to hear the book and did not want to spoil it by readying ahead. I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone!
