    The honeymoon is over, now the murders can begin. America's #1 thriller writer returns with his sexiest, scariest novel ever. Hotter than The Beach House and scarier than Kiss the Girls, James Patterson's explosive new thriller introduces a bride who is beautiful, talented, devoted, and deadly.

    "OK, not wonderful"
    Overall

    One of those books you read and then forget. It passes the time, is interesting, but certainly not spellbinding.

    Jodi Picoult delivers the riveting tale of one small town's entanglement with high-school violence.

    New York Superior Court Judge Alex Cormier is assigned to preside over the case of the alleged Sterling High School shooter. Lawyer Jordan McAffee represents Peter, the boy who, on the day of the shooting, was found in the corner of the gymnasium holding a gun to his head with a shaky hand. Detective Patrick DuCharme has one star witness, but her story keeps changing. And then there's the biggest problem of all: the star witness happens to be Judge Cormier's daughter.

    Story

    This held my attention from beginning to end. Picoult regularly tackles difficult subjects, and this is no exception. However, I found this one the best so far. She takes a painful situation and looks at it from all angles. At times, I almost had to stop listening because the torment of some of the characters was so real and so difficult to hear. I highly recommend this book, especially to those who like a book that makes them think. I wish this book were required reading for all preteens and teens, that challenging time of life when choices can have very unintended consequences. (And I am a grandmother, so I am not suggesting this is a book written for young people alone; just listen to it and you will understand.)

    his most powerful and intricately-plotted novel yet. Thirteen year-old Johnny Merrimon had the perfect life: happy parents and a twin sister that meant the world to him. But Alyssa went missing a year ago, stolen off the side of a lonely street with only one witness to the crime. His family shattered, his sister presumed dead, Johnny risks everything to explore the dark side of his hometown in a last, desperate search.

    Christine says: "Stick With It!"
    "Very good story. Horrible narration!!"
    Overall

    I am just halfway through this book, and I will continue only because John Hart has written a very good story and I am hooked on it. However, I agree with others who say the narration is absolutely terrible. I'm not sure what Sowers was trying to accomplish, but it almost ruins the book. My 6-year-old grandson could do a better job!! I will avoid other books narrated by Scott Sowers, and that's a shame since Hart's book is good and perhaps I will avoid other good books simply because I fear the narration will be as painful as this!

    As a prosecutor in Houston, Penn Cage sent killers to death row. But as mayor of his hometown - Natchez, Mississippi - Penn will face his most dangerous threat. Urged by old friends to try to restore this fading jewel of the Old South, Penn has ridden into office on a tide of support for change. But in its quest for new jobs and fresh money, Natchez has turned to casino gambling, and now five steamboats float on the river beside the old slave market, like props from Gone With the Wind.

    Corinne says: "Not his best but Iles can't be bad"
    "Not Iles' best work"
    Overall

    I have really enjoyed Greg Iles' other books. Always captivating and well-written. And I've appreciated the narration of Dick Hill in other books also. However, I had to struggle to finish this one. The story dragged to the point where I realized often that I had stopped listening. And I found the narration difficult to understand at times. Liked the story, but was overall disappointed. Do listen to a preview before buying.

    New York book editor Maris Matherly-Reed knows a best seller when she sees one - even if it is just a tantalizing partial manuscript submitted by a writer identified only as P.M.E., with the return address of an obscure island off the Georgia coast. Maris is intrigued enough to search for him.

    This is a fantastic book! Sandra Brown never ceases to amaze me with her writing talent. The weaving together of two stories in this book was wonderfully entertaining. Hated to see it end!

    Featuring an urgent race against the clock, gripping details of psychological manipulation, and the brilliant twists and turns that are trademark Deaver, Speaking in Tongues delivers the suspense punch that has made this author a best seller. It will leave you speechless. Browse more Deaver.

    Dear Listener,
    Have you ever gotten a letter that changed your life completely? It happened to me once. I still can feel the urgency that overtook me as I opened the envelope and the hunger I felt for whatever that letter would say. It seemed as if my entire life hung in the balance as I read.

    I loved this book!!! Beautiful story. I was drawn into the story and the characters almost immediately. The voices were perfect. I fell in love with the story and the characters! Highly recommend.
