    This book is truly an excellent read. Jodi P has done it again. I was completely captivated with the believeable characters and the narrators did a great job throughout. I cannot wait until her next book!

    Detective Alex Cross is a family man at heart--nothing matters more to him than his children, his grandmother, and his wife Bree. His love of his family is his anchor, and gives him the strength to confront evil in his work. One man knows this deeply, and uses Alex's strength as a weapon against him in the most unsettling and unexpected novel of James Patterson's career.

    I love the Alex Cross series and this one was no different. The plot was great. The narration was great. Extremely disappointed in the ending.

    The sheriff's deputy at the front door brings hard news to Ree Dolly. Her father has skipped bail on charges that he ran a crystal meth lab, and the Dollys will lose their house if he doesn't show up for his next court date. Ree's father has disappeared before. The Dolly clan has worked the shadowy side of the law for generations, and arrests (and attempts to avoid them) are part of life in Rathlin Valley.

    This had the makings of a good book but the plot was very weak/shallow. I understand the struggles of this family but for goodness sake, give the readers something to hold on to.

    Emma Galvin's narration was the only reason I finished this one. Good job Emma.

    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.

    Mary Boleyn was the mistress of two kings, Francois I of France and Henry VIII of England, and sister to Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII’s second wife. In this astonishing and riveting biography, Alison Weir’s extensive research gives a new and detailed portrayal, in which she recounts that, contrary to popular belief, Mary was entirely undeserving of her posthumous notoriety as a great whore.

    Cariola says: "Weir Seems to Have Lost Her Touch"

    Bored with too much criticism of other historians and very weak plot. Enjoyed the narration of the first part. Couldn't force myself to continue. Would love to have more 'Innocent Traitor-like' books.

    The president's son and daughter are abducted, and Detective Alex Cross is one of the first on the scene. But someone very high-up is using the FBI, Secret Service, and CIA to keep him off the case and in the dark. A deadly contagion in the water supply cripples half of the capital, and Alex discovers that someone may be about to unleash the most devastating attack the United States has ever experienced. As his window for solving both crimes narrows, Alex makes a desperate decision that goes against everything he believes....

    As a huge JP fan, I didn't enjoy this one as much as the others in the Alex Cross series. The plot and narration were good but it had an abridged feel to it. Too short.

    Detective Alex Cross and Bree's wedding plans are put on hold when Alex is called to the scene of the perfectly executed assassination of two of Washington D.C.'s most corrupt: a dirty congressmen and a scheming lobbyist. Next, the elusive marksman begins picking off other crooked politicians, sparking a blaze of theories - is the marksman a hero or a vigilante? The case explodes and FBI agent Max Siegel battles Alex for jurisdiction.

    Andrea D. Thomas says: "Loved It!"
    "Should have read hard copy."

    As a James Patterson/Alex Cross fan, this book does not disappoint. While the content was great, the narration leaves a lot to be desired. I will read the next Alex Cross book but if the narrators are the same, I will most likely buy the hard copy.

    It is the week before Christmas. A tanking economy has prompted Dr. Kay Scarpetta - despite her busy schedule and her continuing work as the senior forensic analyst for CNN - to offer her services pro bono to New York City's Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. In no time at all, her increased visibility seems to precipitate a string of unexpected and unsettling events.

    Lee says: "Disappointed"
    "Great Sleep Aid"
    Overall

    As a long time Scarpetta fan, this book ranks at the bottom of the Patricia Cornwell list for me. I endured the first few hours in the hopes that it would get better but I gave up with a couple of hours left to listen. Bored and disappointed.

    Caretta Rutledge thought she’d left her Southern roots and troubled family far behind. But an unusual request from her mother – coming just as her own life is spinning out of control – has Cara heading back to the scenic Lowcountry of her childhood summers. Before long, the rhythms of the island open her heart in wonderful ways as she repairs the family beach house, becomes a bona fide “turtle lady” and renews old acquaintances long thought lost.

    Jamie says: "Feel good book, not riveting but enjoyable"
    "Couldn't get through it"
    Overall

    I usually love Mary Alice Monroe's work and I'm sure this is a great book. But, the poor narration prevented me from listening to it. I may try to read it later.
