    The key to weight loss isn't calories. It isn't fat. It isn't protein. It isn't even carbs. You can count them, cut them, and swap them all you want, but you won't lose weight if you're eating foods that your body can't tolerate. And the most common diet foods - like egg whites, wheat bread, and fat-free yogurt - are some of the worst offenders. These "healthy" foods are actually making you fat! In this book, celebrity nutritionist and fitness expert J. J. Virgin pinpoints the 10 foods that sabotage weight loss. Just by eliminating these 10 diet saboteurs, listeners will see incredible results.

  • Loose Ends: A Mary O'Reilly Paranormal Mystery, Book One

    Dying is what changed Mary O'Reilly's life. Well, actually, coming back from the dead and having the ability to communicate with ghosts is really what did it. Now, a private investigator in rural Freeport, Illinois, Mary's trying to learn how to incorporate her experience as a Chicago cop and new-found talent into a real job. Her challenge is to solve the mysteries, get real evidence (a ghost's word just doesn't hold up in court), and be sure the folks in town, especially the handsome new police chief, don't think she's nuts.

    Karen says: "Great book bad narration."

    If you could sum up Loose Ends in three words, what would they be?

    Interesting, Fun Read


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Loose Ends?

    Mary O'Reilly's interactions with various ghosts, particularly the murder victim.


    What about Erin Spencer’s performance did you like?

    I really like the sound of Erin Spencer's voice, which I feel is important when you are listening to a book. The "wrong" voice can ruin an otherwise good book. I also like the way she pauses a little before saying "he said or she said" and she doesn't read too fast. Occasionally, I thought she put the wrong inflection or emphasis on some words/phrases. I sometimes found myself saying the words/phrases differently in my mind, but that's just my opinion. I think trying to use a man's voice for Bradley and other men in the story didn't really go over very well. It came across as a little silly. However, I would definitely listen to more of these books. In fact, I have put all of them on my Wish List. They are well-written, enjoyable stories and kudos to Terri Reid for keeping them pretty clean. Vulgar language and/or suggestive dialogue causes me to lose interest quickly, even if the book is good. I wouldn't call these books page-turners but they are interesting enough to keep me wanting more.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
