    In her latest suspense masterpiece, Karin Slaughter weaves together moving, powerful human stories of characters as real as they are complex and unforgettable. At the same time she has crafted a work of dazzling storytelling and spine-tingling mystery - as three people, with their own wounds and their own secrets, are all that stand between a madman and his next crime.

    If you could sum up Undone in three words, what would they be?

    Even though I haven't yet finished this book it's good. Only problem I had is it repeats itself so far 3 different time. I only have 37 min. left but I think I know how it's going to end. Maybe I should of waited until then, but I have enjoyed this book and thought you all should know.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Will Trent of course.


    What about Natalie Ross’s performance did you like?

    I like her voice. She doesn't make me crazy like some.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Wish I could but didn't have 16 hours to spare.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm going to finish this book now. Hope all enjoy it as much as I have.

    Psychologist Faith Corcoran is desperate to escape the stalker who's made her life a nightmare for the past year--desperate enough to run to the one place that has been her nightmare for far longer. Both boon and bane, her recent inheritance of her grandmother's old house in Cincinnati offers a sanctuary in which she can start her life anew but requires that she face dark memories that resonate to this day.

    All of them


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    I have never listen to a book this long before. I always felt I'd get bored with them or become very tired listening to it. BUT on this one I couldn't get enough of it. I never wanted to put it down I didn't even want to put it down to sleep. I never got bored, it held me so tightly in it's grasp. Never listened to Karen Rose before either but I find myself buying 3 more of her books and am hoping they are as good as this one.

    Kate Freeman opened the front door of her vacation villa to a wolf in sheep’s clothing. A few moments later, fifty thousand paralyzing volts shot through her body. Her world went dark; and when she awoke, her family was torn apart forever.After months of agonizing physical therapy to heal the vicious wounds to her body, the Kate who emerged was no longer the loving mother, sister, and friend from before. The Kate who survived was something much different. Something much darker.

Since he left his simple life in the small town of Pico Mundo, California, his journey has taken him to places strange and wonderful, mysterious and terrifying. Across the land, in the company of mortals and spirits alike, he has known kindness and cruelty, felt love and loss, saved lives and taken them - as he's borne witness to humanity's greatest good and darkest evil.

    Any additional comments?

    I am so sorry that Mr. Koontz decided to end Odd Thomas. I have so enjoyed the stories that he made come to life. I really wasn't ready to let him go not just yet anyway. Oh well I guess I'll try and find another good series to sink my teeth into. Thank you Mr. Koontz for Oddy.

    Revelation "Reve" Dyer grew up with her grandmother’s family stories, stretching back centuries to Reve’s ancestors, who founded the town of Hawley Five Corners, Massachusetts. Their history is steeped in secrets, for few outsiders know that an ancient magic runs in the Dyer women’s blood, and that Reve is a magician whose powers are all too real. Reve and her husband are world-famous Las Vegas illusionists. They have three lovely young daughters, a beautiful home, and what seems like a charmed life. But Reve’s world is shattered....

    When it comes to Eve Duncan, never say never…Is she dead or alive? That is the question on everybody's lips. Eve appears to have been the victim of James Doane, the psychopath who kidnapped her and forced her to use her skills as a forensic sculptor to reconstruct the skull of his depraved son. That's what everyone attending her funeral thinks, at least. But not even some of her top-brass colleagues know for sure whether her death is a hoax - a way to ensnare her brutal captor once and for all.

    What does Elisabeth Rodgers bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She has a good voice and I enjoyed her characters accents.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The book was good in alot of places. The thing that turned me off was Jane having to do everything and not wanting (ha ha) anybody else to help. If you love someone as much as she loves Eve why wouldn't you want everyone helping you why did it always have to be only her?


    Any additional comments?

    Don't be so stubborn makes for a better read if all are involved. People like Jane drive me crazy. My way or the highway bull.

College graduate student Molly Monroe is about to release rare butterflies not far from where the FBI used 4,000 bullets in a shootout to kill Ma Barker and one of her gangster sons in 1935. Molly snaps a picture that will frame something she never sees coming.

    Where does The Butterfly Forest rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best, wish there were more.


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

    Not on the edge but firmly planted. Would like to listen to more from Tom Lowe but Audible doesn't have the 2 before nor the 1 after. What gives? The characters were well thought out and enjoyable to see them evolve. I expect Mr. Lowe will have a good long run if any of his other books are like the Butterfly Forest.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I can't chose just one. There are far to many good scenes for that.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Sit back and enjoy. If they make the movie like the book was written.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope to hear more of Sean O'Brien he is a good character.

    Somebody who doesn't have a brain, unless you enjoy listening to the same crap repeating itself over and over. Even free which it isn't don't waste your money or credit.


    Has I Dream of Danger turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no


    What does Seraphine Valentine bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She has a good voice and makes you feel the experience, but even with that the book isn't worth your time.


    What character would you cut from I Dream of Danger?

    none

    The plot (even though I haven't finished the book yet) is interesting and enjoyable. Amy McFadden is making it hard though to finish it. Oh well, she is another narrator that I'll knock off my list of books if she is the narrating, I'll not buy.
