    The Reverend Lee Barker went missing 19 years ago. And the people of Stillwater, Mississippi, believe they know why. They're convinced he was murdered by his stepson, Clay Montgomery. But only Clay, his mother, and sisters can say for sure. They were the only ones there that fateful night, the only ones who know what really happened. And they're not talking.

    For Kimberly Quincy, FBI Special Agent, it all starts with a pregnant hooker. The story Delilah Rose tells Kimberly about her johns is too horrifying to be true; but prostitutes are disappearing, one by one, with no explanation, and no one but Kimberly seems to care.

    Would you listen to Say Goodbye again? Why?

    Yes, to see what clues I missed


    Have you listened to any of Ann Marie Lee and Lincoln Hoppe ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I'm not sure however it was a great mix. I wasn't sure about multiple narrators before but I really enjoy them now.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Cry for sure. The serious nature of child abduction and this story of how children can be broken and brainwashed. It was a great book. It will make you more aware of the things in your life you thought were safe.


    Any additional comments?

    A serious book but I love the twist and turns of it. I enjoy all of her books as they are very well written and researched. A great listen.

    Dallas cop Gray Montgomery is on a mission: find the guy who killed his partner and bring him to justice. So far, he's found a link between the killer and Faith - and if Gray has to get close to her to catch the killer, so be it. Faith is sweet and feminine, everything Gray wants and desires in a woman, but he suspects she's playing games. No way would she allow a man to call the shots in their relationship. Or would she? Faith sees in Gray the strong, dominant man she needs, but he seems determined to keep her at a distance.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone into erotica


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I have no idea.


    What didn’t you like about Caroline Wintour’s performance?

    I couldn't tell you I was so overwhelmed and shocked by what I was hearing I don't think I made a distinction about her.


    What character would you cut from Sweet Surrender?

    The entire book


    Any additional comments?

    The description for this book leads you to believe its just another romance book. It does not indicate the sexual nature. I think there should have been a warning about the type of material that was in this book.

    Gwen may have left Louisiana a starry-eyed innocent, but now she's returned successful and accomplished. And with enough sense to deal with her mother's maddening boarder, Luke Powers. But once Gwen meets Luke--a man reputed to be an expert in both words and women--her composure disappears. Now she has stars in her eyes but isn't so innocent.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A better story as well as the accents. I couldn't get into the story at all and I love Nora Roberts.


    What could Nora Roberts have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I have no clue. Maybe this was written on a bad day or just the narrator


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The simpleton Louisiana accents. It made me think of a civil war plantation house. Ugh


    What character would you cut from Her Mother's Keeper?

    Have no idea I stopped half way through


    Any additional comments?

    It was cheap, it's the only reason I got it but I have never stopped listening to a book before. I just couldn't take it. The accents were killing me

    It was a case guaranteed to spark a media feeding frenzy: a young mother, blond and pretty, disappears without a trace from her South Boston home, leaving behind her four-year-old daughter as the only witness and her handsome, secretive husband as the prime suspect. But from the moment Detective Sergeant D. D. Warren arrives at the Joneses - a snug little bungalow, she senses something off about the picture of wholesome normality the couple worked so hard to create.

    What made the experience of listening to The Neighbor the most enjoyable?

    I really enjoyed all of the "who did its" ....you never knew what part each person played until the end. The narration was great. If you enjoy suspenseful , plot thickening books you will love this. Those who wrote about the wife's infidelity and so forth. This is fiction...if you want predictable happy tales listen to a regency romance. Hey it's nothing you haven't heard about on NCIS or Law and Order before, or the news for that matter.

    Great book, I really enjoyed it...now I'm downloading the next one in the series. I started at the first one and I'm just going down the list. Can't wait to listen to the next one!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Neighbor?

    The ending. How all of the peices of the puzzle came together


    Have you listened to any of the narrators???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I wasn't sure about 3 narrators at first, but they really helped you relate and follow who was speaking.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was wanting to fast forward to the end so I could see who did what, I was so into it!

    The girl everybody loves to hate has returned to the town she'd sworn to leave behind forever. As the rich, spoiled princess of Parrish, Mississippi, Sugar Beth Carey had broken hearts, ruined friendships, and destroyed reputations. But 15 years have passed, now she's come home, broke, desperate, and too proud to show it.

    This narrator was the best! The book made me feel for the characters and I even found myself laughing out loud, and then crying buckets of tears!! Very good story! Well worth your listen!
