    From Atlanta's wealthiest suburbs to its stark inner-city housing projects, a killer has crossed the boundaries of wealth and race. And the people who are chasing him must cross those boundaries, too. Among them is Michael Ormewood, a veteran detective whose marriage is hanging by a thread and whose arrogance and explosive temper are threatening his career. And Angie Polaski, a beautiful vice cop who was once Michael's lover before she became his enemy.

    "Fantastic Writing"
    Overall

    First...I agree. The accents are bad (another southerner weighs in), but not enough to turn me off of the book. This author really gets into the minds of all of her characters, creating (with one exception), real people. The story is nuanced and well written. A good reason to get up and drive 50 min to work every day.

    The discovery of a dead infant in an Amish barn shakes Lancaster County to its core. But the police investigation leads to a more shocking disclosure: circumstantial evidence suggests that 18-year-old Katie Fisher, an unmarried Amish woman believed to be the newborn's mother, took the child's life.

    "Not so Good"
    Overall

    First the voices. With the exception of the Amish characters, who all sound stilted and puppet-like, the characters all sound smarmy, condescending, angry or disgusted. It was hard to listen to. Second the lawyer. If I ever go on trial for murder, I sure hope I have a lawyer who does far more investigation earlier in the course of her preparation and less quilting. It's a book. I want to see how it turns out, but I am disappointed with the selection.

    From the best-selling author Barbara Freethy comes a story of sisterehood, secrets, and lies. Ten years ago, during a party gone out of control, beautiful Emily fell to her death, leaving her best friends and sorority sisters - Natalie, Laura, and Madison - devastated. Now, an unknown writer has written a novel that mirrors their story. But who is he, and how does he know the personal details of their lives?

    Regardless of the description -this is a ROMANCE novel. I should remember to listen to a sample of anything I think of buying.

    Edith Lavery, the pretty daughter of an accountant, meets gossip-column favorite Charles Broughton (Earl of Broughton and heir to the Marquess of Uckfield) at Ascot. When he proposes and she accepts, does she really love him, or is she merely dazzled by his title and money?

    Lori says: "A Fantastic Beach Read!"
    "Surprise"
    Overall

    I expected light fluffy reading but was really surprised to find the level of ironic insight in this book. It was extremely well written...not heavy, but certainly no formula romance. The reader was great, the characters well drawn and sympathetic. A very enjoyable read.
