    Stacy Justice is your average small-town reporter...who just so happens to be a witch. She’s never had the time or patience to mess around with the magic her grandmother and great-aunts are into, even though Grandma says Stacy has a higher calling. Right now, Stacy has stories to cover, her cousin Cinnamon’s bar to help run, and her cute cop boyfriend and flatulent Great Dane to keep her company. But when someone sets Cinnamon’s bar ablaze - almost killing Stacy in the process - the green-eyed redhead will have to embrace her inner witch after all.

    Story

    Nice book and easy listen. One thing that was quite distracting was that the narrator's voice was so robotic! Overall, the story was entertaining and the protagonist and other characters were likable, if one dimensional. While I generally love book series and usually am anxious to read more, I am not sure that I will continue this one. This may be one that I continue by just reading and not listening to an audiobook, as I have a feeling I would like it more without the narrator's voice.

    Emily Aulenbach is 30, a lawyer married to a lawyer, working in Manhattan. An idealist, she had once dreamed of representing victims of corporate abuse, but she spends her days in a cubicle talking on the phone with vic­tims of tainted bottled water - and she is on the bottler’s side. And it isn’t only work. It’s her sister, her friends, even her husband, Tim, with whom she doesn’t connect the way she used to. She doesn’t connect to much in her life, period, with the exception of three things - her computer, her BlackBerry, and her watch....

    Story

    I want to start this review by saying that perhaps I am not in this book's target audience. While I enjoy nature, I am much more of a city girl. With that in mind, I found this book so boring and repetitive. This book is also slow moving and I think that it could be cut in half and be much more enjoyable. The premise is that the protagonist is tired of her life in NYC and has decided to escape to a small town. While that sounded good to me (We all need a break to recharge at some point) the incessant descriptions of the landscape, of how the air smelled, and of how the ground felt under her shoes became quite tedious to me. Also, the main character was so self-centered. I realize that while most people have time periods of being completely egotistical, this is not something I prefer to read about. During most of the book, I was irritated with her for how she treats the significant people in her life. I like to be able to root for the main character of a book. I waffled between liking the narrator (she did put emotion in her storytelling) to disliking the Kennedy-esque accents of the local townsfolk. Overall, if you really enjoy long winded descriptions of nature or of the protagonists self obsessed feelings this book is for you. If not, buy with caution.

    Heloise considers it a blessing to be a person who seldom attracts attention. In her suburb, she's just a mom, the young widow with the forgettable job, who somehow never misses a soccer game. In the state capital, she's the redheaded lobbyist with a good cause and a mediocre track record. But in discreet hotel rooms throughout the area, she's the woman of your dreams - if you can afford the hourly fee. For more than a decade, Heloise believed she was safe, managing to keep up this rigidly compartmentalized life. But her secret life is under siege. One county over, another so-called suburban madam has been found dead in her car, an apparent suicide.

    Story

    I really enjoyed this book. The book spans from the time the protagonist was a teen to her thirties. The majority of the book uses the format where there is a chapter in the present followed by a chapter in the past. The only reason that I give the story 4 stars is because sometimes it was confusing to know if the story being told was in the past or present. I probably was not paying close enough attention. Based on other people's reviews, I would guess that if you have a strong moral objection to prostitution this book is not for you. The book does not glamorize prostitution or have explicit sexual scenes, but it does play a large part in the protagonist's story. Overall, great book that I could not stop listening to.

    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.

    Story

    This book was a nice, easy listen. The story was good, though a bit predictable. The main character, Jane, can be funny at times. While the main character's voice was fine, some of the other character's delivery was off. For example, every time one of the supporting character's talked it sounded like he was chewing gum! Mild issue, but could be quite annoying over the course of the series. Overall, I will probably listen to the entire series as I do like light books every once in a while that don't require much thinking.

    Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in "The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas". As her family lay dying, little Libby fled their tiny farmhouse into the freezing January snow. She lost some fingers and toes, but she survived, and famously testified that her 15-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, Ben sits in prison, and troubled Libby lives off the dregs of a trust created by well-wishers who've long forgotten her.

    Story

    I'm a big fan of Gillian Flynn and I have listened to her other two books. Like the other two, this is a great mystery; however, the story is definitely DARK. The main character is somewhat frustrating at times and the story starts a bit slowly but overall it is a good read. The story goes back and forth from the present and past. While at first I did not like this format, it really helped flesh out the story in an interesting way. Like the other two books I found myself thinking about the story for days after I finished it. While Dark Places is not as good as Gone Girl or Sharp Objects, it is a solid read. The narrator's performance was good and didn't detract from the story.
