    When Susan Richards adopted an abused horse rescued by the local SPCA, she didn't know that the memoir she would write about the experience would become a best seller - or that she would fall in love.

    William H. Franklin Jr. says: "Ugh!!!"
    "Great continuation of Chosen by a Horse"
    Overall

    A well read sequal. I enjoyed it as much as the first book.

    Tim Wallace's wife died in a New Jersey boating accident several months ago and the cops suspect Tim murdered her, though they have no real case against him. Now it's New Year's Eve, and Tim's life is about to go from bad to worse.

    Deborah says: "The weakest of David Rosenfelt's works"
    "Great story!"
    Overall

    Although not as much dog interest as some of his other stories, this had a good plot and was well read.

    New York Times best-selling author Stephen Hunter returns with his most riveting Bob Lee Swagger volume to date. The stakes are high - and personal - because this time, Swagger's daughter's life is at stake. Forced off the road and into a crash that leaves her clinging to life in a coma, Nikki Swagger had begun to peel back the onion of a Southern Fried scandal.

    Cletus van Damme says: "Let Bob Lee Swagger Retire"
    "You go, Bob Lee!!!"
    Overall

    We love Bob Lee Swagger. Despite his age, he still gets his man or should we say men. Devoted to his family - and tough as nails on top of it.

    Donald Thornton was a ditchdigger who wanted more for his six daughters. "I love you better than I love life," he assured his children. "But I'm not always gonna be around to look after you, and no man's gonna come along and offer to take care of you, because you ain't light-skinned. That's why you gotta be able to look after yourselves. And for that you gotta be smart."

    shirley K. Bigham says: "straight forward"
    "Wonderful story of achievement"
    Overall

    Not the best reader, but the story of the Thornton family was very inspiring.

    Thirty-eight year old Cassandra is lost, alone, and grieving. Her much loved grandmother, Nell, has just died and Cassandra, her life already shaken by a tragic accident 10 years ago, feels like she has lost everything known and dear to her.

    avid reader says: "Hours of enjoyable, fun listening"
    "I loved this one!"
    Overall

    A great story developed by going back and forth in time to discover the reason for a child's abandonment aboard a boat to Australia. The story is well written and executed. Also - very well read. I am hooked by Kate Morton's writing style and want to listen to more.

    Known by his alias, "Oliver Stone," John Carr is the most wanted man in America. With two pulls of the trigger, the men who destroyed Stone's life and kept him in the shadows were finally silenced. But his freedom comes at a steep price: The assassinations he carried out prompt the highest levels of the U.S. government to unleash a massive manhunt. Behind the scenes, master spy Macklin Hayes is playing a very personal game of cat and mouse. He, more than anyone, wants Stone dead.

    Graham S. Stafford says: "Love the Camel Club"
    "Another great Camel Club story"
    Overall

    Lots of twists and turns. A good listen!

    The horse Susan Richards chose for rescue wouldn't be corralled into her waiting trailer. Instead, Lay Me Down, a former racehorse with a foal close on her heels, walked right up that ramp and into Susan's life. This gentle creature, malnourished, plagued by pneumonia and an eye infection, had endured a rough road, but somehow her heart was still open and generous.

    Deanna says: "Loved, loved, LOVED this book"
    "Awesome writer and awesome reader"
    Overall

    Lorna Raver does an excellent job of reading this wonderful book so that you feel like you are actually hearing the author Susan Richards tell her story. Although Richards has faced some difficult issues in her life, she presents them using a wonderful sense of humor. A great tribute to how the animals in our lives help us to define ourselves as human beings. I highly recommend this book, especially to animal lovers. Richards is a talented writer. I am looking forward to listening to "Chosen Forever".

    Few can rival attorney Andy Carpenter's affection for golden retrievers, especially his own beloved Tara. After he astonishes a New Jersey courtroom by successfully appealing another golden's death sentence, Andy discovers that this gentle dog is a key witness to a murder that took place five years before. Andy pushes the boundaries of the law even further as he struggles to free an innocent man by convincing an incredulous jury to take canine testimony seriously. It will take all the tricks Andy's fertile mind can conceive to get to the bottom of a remarkable chain of impersonations and murder, and to save a dog's life - and his own - in the process.

    Amazon Customer says: "Brilliant, Funny, a GREAT READ"
    "Good listen"
    Overall

    I've become a huge David Rosenfelt/Andy Carpenter fan. I love dogs and his cases are a fun way to get my dog fix.

  • World Without End

    In 1989 Ken Follett astonished the literary world with The Pillars of the Earth, set in 12th-century England. Readers and listeners ever since have hoped for a sequel. At last, here it is. Although the two novels may be listened to in any order, World Without End also takes place in Kingsbridge, two centuries after the townspeople finished building their exquisite Gothic cathedral. The cathedral is again at the center of a web of love and hate, greed and pride, ambition and revenge.

    Laura says: "Repetitive, but still enjoyable"
    "Great Saga and sequel to Pillars of the Earth!"
    Overall

    Pillars of the Earth was one of my all-time favorite reads and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to World Without End. It's always a good sign when you are sad that the book has ended - that you will miss reading or hearing about the characters each day. Ken Follett accomplished that with both of these books.
