    I enjoyed the book, but it was not note worthry. The characters are lack luster and you find you self just wishing for the author to get on with it. The book did have a nice ending.

    In Paris, a ruthless descendant of Napoleon has risen to power, hell-bent on restoring France's former glory. His fiery ambitions are cynically stoked by a coterie of cold-blooded Mandarins, plotting behind the gates of Beijing's Forbidden City. Cloaked in secrecy, this unholy alliance devises a twisted global plan, backed by China's growing nuclear arsenal, that will send America and the world to the brink of a gut-wrenching showdown.

    Ten years ago, Lilly Carmichael left town without an explanation, breaking Braden Donnelly's heart. The death of her aunt has brought Lilly home and face-to-face with memories she thought were long buried. Still getting over a traumatic incident from her work as an NSA agent, Lilly initially dismisses the face at her window as a figment of stress-induced paranoia.

    With The Look of Love, best-selling author Bella Andre introduces you to a fun and emotional contemporary romance series about the Sullivan family. Because when a Sullivan bad boy falls... he falls hard. And it's forever. Chloe Peterson is having a bad night. A really bad night. The large bruise on her cheek can attest to that. And when her car skids off the side of a wet country road straight into a ditch, she's convinced even the gorgeous guy who rescues her must be too good to be true. Or is he?

    The first and most bizarre event nearly becomes a monumental catastrophe when something goes awry at an American theme park, wreaking havoc on visitors looking for nothing more than a sun-splashed holiday. In a different part of the country, a USAF F-15 pilot, escorting another jet in the skies over the Midwest, inexplicably loses control of his plane, endangering the lives of several people and deeply puzzling those following his mission on the ground.

    I have followed Ted Bell since his first novel Hawke, I have never been disappointed. Phantom kept me reading till the end. I love his leading man Hawk and the way he gets out of the most dangerous situation. I loved Hawk's new ship and the sea battles. The reader was a joy to listen to and the story was complex but yet I didn't get lost.

    Dr. Charlotte Stone sees what others do not. A sought-after expert in criminal pathology, Charlie regularly sits face-to-face with madmen. Obsessed with learning what makes human monsters commit terrible crimes, Charlie desires little else from life - no doubt because when she was 16, she herself survived a serial killer's bloodbath: A man butchered the family of Charlie's friend, then left the girl's body on a seaside boardwalk one week later. Because of the information Charlie gave police, the Boardwalk Killer went underground.

    I enjoyed the interaction between the gost and charlie. The verbal interaction between the characters was fun. The story line was a bit unusual not what I expected. The end was left asking for another book. By the end of the book you find yourself rooting for bad boy Michael Garland. I hope you give this book a listen.

    Something terrible has happened in the snowbound village of Kingdom Come, Wyoming, where 12 eerily identical houses stand dark and abandoned. Meals remain untouched on dining room tables, cars are still in garages, and the town's residents have vanished into thin air. This is the disturbing setting where vacationing medical examiner Maura Isles and her traveling companions find themselves trapped during a ferocious snowstorm.

    What did you love best about Ice Cold?

    Twist and turns gave interest to the book, kept you reading on.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Tess Gerritsen? Why or why not?

    I liked her style and intend to read some more of her books.


    What about Tanya Eby’s performance did you like?

    The reader did a nice job.


    Any additional comments?

    The book felt unfinished. I wanted to know what happened to Maura. Did she follow through with her plan to leave her relationship with the preist.

    While scuba diving in Tanzania, Sam and Remi Fargo come upon a relic belonging to a long-lost Confederate ship. An anomaly about the relic sets them off chasing a mystery-but unknown to them, a much more powerful force is engaged in the same chase. Mexico's ruling party, the ultranationalist Mexica Tenochca, is intent on finding that artifact as well, because it contains a secret that could destroy the party utterly.

    Would you listen to Lost Empire again? Why?

    I am sure I will be listening to this book again. Characters in the book were interesting, the plot had some twist to it and the reader did a good job.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Just when I was thinking how ever will the characters get out of this mess the author came up with an interesting escape.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorit scene is when the bad guy falls to his death.

    Banner Clairmont hated the idea of her beloved Lyonsgate Plantation being sold, even to dashing Rory Stewart, who seemed to know so much about her. But as they toured the grounds before that evening's costume ball, she sensed the house welcoming the intruder, sharing its ghostly secrets. Rory was fascinated by the estate, and even more by his lovely guide. But who, he wondered aloud, were the early guests?

    Kay does a good job bringing out the people and making you care for them. The story is a light and fun read. Set in the present day with a old southern family plantation as a back drop, gost come and go as two people find love.
