    When Stone Barrington embarks on a trip to Bel-Air to check in on some business and personal concerns, he expects a relaxing break from the fast pace and mean streets of New York. But trouble never takes a vacation, and it has a way of finding Stone. A case that had seemingly been resolved has returned in full force - with lethal results. And this deadly situation makes for strange bedfellows when Stone finds himself teamed with the least likely ally…a gentleman of unique abilities, who can fly below the radar and above the law.

    Story

    I have always enjoyed this series and this was better than the last two. But it is becoming a little annoying to have everything always perfect. The kids are perfect. The women are perfect. Stone is perfect. Even real rich people aren't this perfect. I'd love to see the old Stone again.....the non rich one on the edge of the society page. Accepted by the beautiful people without actually being one of them. Tony Roberts was excellent as usual. Good to see Teddy back. I always liked that character. But this time even Teddy was perfect!

    Repo man Nick Reid had a seemingly simple job to do: talk to Percy Dwayne Dubois about the payments he's behind on for a flat-screen TV, or repossess it. But Percy Dwayne wouldn't give in. Nope, instead he saw fit to go all white-trash philosophical and decided that since the world was stacked against him anyway, he might as well fight it. He hit Nick over the head with a fireplace shovel, tied him up and stole the mint-condition calypso coral-colored 1969 Ranchero that Nick had borrowed from his landlady. Road trip!

    I absolutely loved this book! It's fresh and funny and written in a Southern vernacular that the narrator hits perfectly. The story is just complicated enough to keep you interested.

  • A Case of Bad Taste: A Morning Shade Mystery

    Award-winning author Lori Copeland has published dozens of romances and inspirational novels. A Case of Bad Taste, set in a small Arkansas town, brims with homespun humor and unforgettable characters. When a series of break-ins shakes up the town, novelist Maude Diamond spots fresh material for her next book. A crook is sneaking into people’s houses - and redecorating them!

    Kat says: "Whiny, preachy, dissappointing"

    Overall

    I thought I was getting a nice cozy mystery. Imagine someone breaking into houses and redecorating them. Sounds like a hoot.
    What I got was a whiny, boring piece of Christian fiction that takes a long time to end. The main character is a Christian writer who can't seem to get on the bestseller list and whines about it all through the book. She also has her mother inlaw and daughter, both widows, like herself living with her. This has so many possibilities but sadly went nowhere. Plus, more whining. The mystery wasn't even mentioned till the third chapter or so. And not a lot after that. I didn't really want to finish the book, but I did want to find out who was behind the break ins. Sadly, even the ending was pretty senseless.
    This book is about this woman and her problems and how everything happens for a reason and how God has a plan...and that's it. If you are looking for a good mystery then skip this.

    The wizard Margle the Horrendous takes special pride in never killing his enemies. Instead, he transforms them into various accursed forms and locks them away in his castle. It's Nessy's duty to tend this castle. Its a lot of work, but she manages, taking pride in housekeeping talents that keep the castle from collapsing into chaos. But when Margle suddenly dies, everything begins to unravel.

    Overall

    This is such a fun and enjoyable listen. The story is as crazy as you would expect from A. Lee Martinez. The characters are so off the wall you can't help but love them. The book would not be nearly as much fun without the wonderful narration. The different voices are what really sets this book apart. As previously noted, if you don't enjoy imaginative narration then you won't enjoy this.

    New York Times best-selling author Lisa Lutz conspires with - or should we say against? - coauthor David Hayward to write an original and hilarious tag-team crime novel. Meet Paul and Lacey Hansen: orphaned, pot-growing twentysomething siblings eking out a living in rural Northern California. When a headless corpse appears on their property, they can't exactly dial 911, so they move the body and wait for the police to find it. Instead, the corpse reappears, a few days riper... and an amateur sleuth is born. Make that two.

    Overall

    I must repectfully disagree with the other reviewers. I found the concept and story outstanding! The back and forth between the two authors was fresh and funny. Their reactions to each others chapters were some of the funniest things in the book. The concept of two authors taking turns writing chapters is awesome. I love the way the story changes depending on which one wrote the chapter. I looked like an idiot while grocery shopping because I was laughing so hard! The narration was perfect. If you only like traditional mysteries then skip this, If you want something new new and different try it. I hope this is only the beginning!!

    Lillie St. Claire is a Talent, one of the rare few who can permanently dispatch the spirits of the dead that walk the earth. Her skills are in demand in a haunted country, where a plague of ghosts is becoming a civic nuisance.

    "Great storyline.....but"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed the storyline and this could be the start of a great series. Having said that, I have to admit that I was eager for it to end. It was just too wordy. It seemed that the author used every obscure adjective available that could or would describe any given thing or situation. I found myself becoming irritated at sentences that were twice as long as they needed to be. I'm no english major, but I do know that sometimes less is better. I was also confused by the use of both American and British slang. It was difficult to decide where the story took place. The characters are well thought out and there is a lot of depth to them. Lots of room to develop backstories and it leaves you wanting to know what happens next. Watson Heintz does a wonderful job on the narration. She is truly talented. Looking forward to a second book. I may go for a print version if it has as many extra words as this one. You can't skim over an audiobook.

    Overall

    I wish I had read the other reviews. I just bought all of these books after listening to the first one because I liked it so much. After a little over an hour I have had enough. If this narrator had done the other books it would have been okay. If she had listened to one of the other books before performing this one it might have been okay...but I don't want to listen to the rest of this...not 15 more hours of mispronounced words and strange grating voices. I am going to get the print edition of this book and read it tomorrow. Then I can move on to the next audiobook in the series....
