    Justin and Libby Denbe have the kind of life you’d find in the pages of a glossy magazine: A beautiful 14-year-old daughter. A gorgeous brownstone on a tree-lined street in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood. A great marriage, admired by all. A perfect life. When investigator Tessa Leone arrives at the crime scene in the foyer of the Denbes’ home, she finds scuff marks on the floor and a million tiny pieces of bright green Taser confetti. The family appears to have been abducted.

    WOW... I loved this book! I would liked to have tweaked the ending just a little bit, but it was still very satisfying. This was my first listen by both the author and the narrator, and they both really impressed me. It was definitely worth the credit. Bravo!!!

    Welcome to the quirky town of Cherico, Mississippi, where potluck meetings at the local library provide a feast for mind and stomach alike. . .If some folks had their way, the Cherico library would have shut down long ago. Councilman Durden Sparks aims to divert funding to a cause dear to his heart - and his wallet.

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Just a very dull, drab voice. She has no distinct voices for characters, which makes it boring.

  • The Profiler's Daughter: Sky Stone, Book 1

    The Profiler's Daughter is a psychologically haunting thriller that combines murder mystery, love triangle, and family intrigue in one satisfying page burner. Sky Stone was born into the wealth and privilege of Boston's oldest Brahmin family but chooses instead to follow in the footsteps of her deceased father, legendary FBI profiler Monk Stone. In the chilly morning hours before the Boston Marathon, when a beautiful university student is found strangled and mutilated, her body left at the base of Heartbreak Hill, Sky returns from self-imposed exile to investigate.

    The narrator really made this a hard listen. She made all characters other than Sky real hard to like and it was very distracting. I might have liked the book with someone else reading it.

    They killed me. They healed me. They changed me. Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn't exactly glamorous, but it was mine. I was doing fine until Chicago's vampires announced their existence to the world---and then a rogue vampire attacked me. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker...and this one decided that the best way to save my life was to make me the walking undead.

    What would have made Some Girls Bite better?

    A different reader might help.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Chloe Neill? Why or why not?

    Maybe, but I really don't see it happening any time soon.


    What didn’t you like about Cynthia Holloway’s performance?

    I can't think of anything I liked about this reader.


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

    Disappointment!

    Anna never knew werewolves existed until the night she survived a violent attack...and became one herself. After three years at the bottom of the pack, she'd learned to keep her head down and never, ever trust dominant males. But Anna is that rarest kind of werewolf: an Omega. And one of the most powerful werewolves in the country will recognize her value as a pack member - and as his mate.

    After listening to the entire Mercy Thompson series, narrated by the irreplaceable Lorelei King, this narrator leaves much to be desired. He makes Charles sound like a dumb jock, and his pronouncement of "Morrock" got on my last nerve. I don't know whose pronouncement is correct, but I liked Lorelei's much better. I loved the story though. I may just have to read the rest of this series the old fashioned way!

    Jane Yellowrock is the last of her kind-a skinwalker of Cherokee descent who can turn into any creature she desires and hunts vampires for a living. But now she's been hired by Katherine Fontaneau, one of the oldest vampires in New Orleans and the madam of Katie's Ladies, to hunt a powerful rogue vampire who's killing other vamps.

    What would have made Skinwalker better?

    A better Narrator, Lorelei King would have been the ideal choice for me. Khristine Hvam mispronounces so many words that it makes her unbelievable as her character. Also, she does very bad voices, especially the male characters. As far as the writing, I had to skip through most of the "Beast" chapters. It was much too choppy for my taste and it got on my nerves. I really tried to like this book, but it just wasn't happening. I won't be wasting any more credits on this writer/narrator combination. If you like this Genre, the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs has this one beat hands down!

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Any additional comments?

    This was by far my favorite Stephen King book to date. My son and I have read many of Kings works, and until this book, my favorites were Doloris Claiborne, Carrie, IT, and Needful Things. This one had all of those beat, which I didn't think would have been possible. To me, 11-22-63 was intriguing from the first paragraph, and kept my attention throughout. The narrator, Craig Wasson, brought the characters to life brilliantly, and for once, I didn't have to write down all the characters and how they tie in to each other so I could keep up with everything going on. In my opinion, King has a bad habit of writing too many characters that weave in and out in all sorts of different directions, but he refrained from doing that with this project. I enjoyed every part of this book ... Bravo Mr. King!!!

    Spanning 40 years, this is the story of turbulent Tom Wingo, his gifted and troubled twin sister Savannah, and their struggle to triumph over the dark and tragic legacy of the extraordinary family into which they were born.

    Ella says: "A "Prince" amongst novels"

    Overall

    I loved listening to this book. I've never read anything by Pat Conroy. I purchased it simply because Frank Muller narrated it. I absolutely loved every minute of it. Frank Muller did a stand-up job, as usual, and the writing was first rate. I haven't seen the movie, so I had nothing to compare it to. Definitely worth the credit!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT"
    Overall

    This is the best book I have read in a very long time! I can't get enough of it. I am a 51 year old white woman who has lived in the Jackson Metro area since 1972. Thankfully, I was not here during the sixties, but I do know that Kathryn Stockett has captured the very essence of what the south was all about during that very trying and shameful time in our history. I can't get over how historically accurate it is. I can't say enough about the readers either. There were only TWO mispronounced words in the whole book, which were both cities, so you can't hold that against them. I HIGHLY recommend this book! I have already listened to it twice, and plan to listen to it again before the movie comes out. IT NEEDS A SEQUEL!
