    After Nina Cormier was jilted at the altar, the empty church exploded. Then someone tried to run Nina off the road, and she realized someone wanted her dead--but who? That's what Detective Sam Navarro needs to find out...fast. With a nightmare unfolding around them, Sam and Nina decipher the stunning truth. Now they're at the mercy of a brilliant madman who plays for keeps.

    What did you like best about Keeper of the Bride? What did you like least?

    The storyline had some promise, but it seemed to be mingled with a sappy love story that overwhelmed the story line at times. There was also some fairly unbelievable behavior, like how people in the story react to death, betrayal, etc., and this detracted from the story and caused confusion about the characters.


    Has Keeper of the Bride turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, but I will watch for reviews about this kind of suspense/romance style of storyline in the future (I think I saw one before I downloaded this book on my phone).


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    More realistic interactions between the two main characters. Too much of the romantic aspect was highly predictable and unnecessary. This part of the storyline was not believeable and made me tune out on several sections. For instance, would a veteran cop who (in the beginning) barely knows this woman really insult her mother and comment on how badly she raised her daughter?

  • The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo: The Millennium Trilogy, Book 1

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    Pamela Murphy says: "COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN"
    "Suspense Thriller!"

    If you could sum up The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo in three words, what would they be?

    suspenseful, addictive, spellbinding


    What did you like best about this story?

    Although it was a little slow starting off, once the story took off, I was hooked! The narrator (Simon Vance) is outstanding and the character development made me feel like I knew Mikhail and Lisbeth. I ended up seeing the movie before I was done with the book and I still listened to the rest of it because it was so good!


    Have you listened to any of Simon Vance’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, this was my first book that he narrated.


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

    This books made me root heartily for Lisbeth and Mikhail!
