    Min Dobbs knows that happily-ever-after is a fairy tale, especially with a man who asked her to dinner to win a bet. Cal Morrisey knows commitment is impossible, especially with a woman as cranky as Min Dobbs. When they say good-bye at the end of their evening, they cut their losses and agree never to see each other again. But Fate has other plans.

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

    If you like boring books, this one is for you. I have listened to some of her other books, and they have been enjoyable, but not this one. It just was very predictable, and should have only been about 4 hours long, just kept trying to add chapter to this book that was not needed.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment, and some anger


    Any additional comments?

    Not her best

    Prodigal Summer weaves together three stories of human love within a larger tapestry of lives in southern Appalachia. At the heart of these intertwined narratives is a den of coyotes that have recently migrated into the region. Deanna Wolfe, a reclusive wildlife biologist, watches them from an isolated mountain cabin where she is caught off-guard by Eddie Bondo, a young hunter who comes to invade her most private spaces and her solitary life.

    Jack Ryan has only just moved back into the Oval Office when he is faced with a new international threat. An aborted coup in the People's Republic of China has left President Wei Zhen Lin with no choice but to agree with the expansionist policies of General Su Ke Quiang. They have declared the South China Sea a protectorate and are planning an invasion of Taiwan. The Ryan administration is determined to thwart China’s ambitions, but the stakes are dangerously high as a new breed of powerful Chinese anti-ship missiles endanger the US Navy's plans to protect the island.

    Amelia Peabody inherited two things from her father: a considerable fortune and an unbendable will. The first allowed her to indulge in her life's passion. Without the second, the mummy's curse would have made corpses of them all.

    What did you like best about A Voice in the Wind? What did you like least?

    This book tells a great story about evils of that time period and the horrible way Romans viewed non-Romans. The characters were well developed, but the book went on to long. I have not read other books by this author, but if all her books show God as being a god that makes people suffer in order to get other people to turn away from sin and except him as the true God, than I would not want to read another. Bad things happen to good people, but not all the time. When I read fiction I like to finish a book on a happy note, if I wanted to read about the reality of that time period and the loss of life and hatred for Christians I would have picked a historical book about the era.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main character


    Would you be willing to try another one of Richard Ferrone’s performances?

    yes


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No one knows why Lara Mallory opens up her medical practice in the rowdy Texas town where Tackett Oil owns everything. But everyone remembers her role in the well-publicized scandal that caused the downfall of White House hopeful Senator Clark Tackett. Now the ironfisted matriarch of Tackett Oil intends to use her money and power to drive Lara out of town...especially when Lara meets Key, the hell-raising, youngest Tackett son.

    I just wish that the authors would stop using such foul language in their books. I can understand a few word now and then, but when almost every line has several off colored words, it gets very annoying. Most of the time, these words do not add anything to the content of the book. I have read books with very little foul language and the book was just as interesting and enjoyable, probably more so. I am more likely to read more books from those authors than from the ones that only have a limited vocabulary, and that vocabulary is one of disgusting words. It is a shame, as this author wrote a good plot and the people in the book were well developed. I would like to read more of her books, but will think really hard before purchasing one again.

    Decision Points is the extraordinary memoir of America's 43rd president. Shattering the conventions of political autobiography, George W. Bush offers a strikingly candid journey through the defining decisions of his life.

    "Good Book"
    Overall

    This book is very informative. It lets you see his thoughts on what he did and why. I feel that it was hard to keep up with the time frame at times, he moves from topic to topic and this causes the book not to flow as easy at it should. Maybe it is just because he lists so many dates and talks about the wars and conflicts a lot.

    In A.D. 327, a Roman galley barely escapes a pirate attack with its extraordinary cargo. In 1916, a British warship mysteriously explodes in the middle of the North Sea. In the present day, a cluster of important mosques in Turkey and Egypt are wracked by explosions. Does anything tie them together? NUMA director Dirk Pitt is about to find out.

    Clive Cussler writes some of the best books and this one is no exception. Loved this book, one of his best

    When Arlene Fleet heads up north for college, she makes three promises to God: She will stop fornicating with every boy who crosses her path; never tell another lie; and never, ever go back to the "fourth rack of hell", her hometown of Possett, Alabama. All she wants from Him is one little miracle: make sure the body is never found.

    This was an OK book, but I will not purchase any of the other books this author has written. I do not enjoy listening to excessive sex scenes or a lot of foul language, plus it was much longer than it needed to be. She seemed to ramble on for no reason. The book could have been several chapters shorter, and not have affected the ending.
