    In Battle Station, Kyle Riggs faces new challenges, new alien fleets, and learns the secrets behind the war he has been fighting for years. In the fifth book of the Star Force Series, the Eden system is in humanity's grasp, but can they keep it? Star Force is weak after a long war, and many yearn to go home. Knowing the machines will return with a new armada eventually, Riggs seeks a more permanent solution. Along the way, worlds are won and lost, millions perish, and great truths are revealed.

    Officer Luz is lucky she still has a job after tasering a male colleague where it counts the most. Sure, he had it coming - which is why the police chief is giving Megan a second chance. The catch? Her new partner can't carry a gun, can't drive a cruiser, and can't recite the Miranda Rights. Because her new partner is a big furry police dog. So that's what the chief meant when he called Megan's partner a real bitch...With Brigit out on the beat, Megan is writing up enough tickets to wallpaper the whole station.

    Totally loved this book. I love Megan's feistiness - the first scene says it all! I think most of us can relate to her feelings of loneliness for one reason or another. It's great that she channels those feelings into a determination to succeed in her chosen career - despite her anger issues. Giving Bridgit's point of view added a great touch. I'm definitely looking forward to more from Megan - and we HAVE to find out what happens between Megan and Seth - not to mention Bridgit's and Blast!

    This was a very enjoyable book. I love the female protagonist, who is a general contractor. I also love that she's not afraid to use pink tools. I appreciated the characters of Jennifer and Whitney - I've worked with people who never got out of high school no matter how old they were. Bottom line, I really enjoyed the book and hope Kate Carlisle continues this series.

    Everyone knew the legend of Christopher Sim. Fighter. Leader. An interstellar hero with a rare talent for war, Sim changed mankind's history forever when he forged a ragtag group of misfits into the weapon that broke the back of the alien Ashiyyur. But now, Alex Benedict has found a startling bit of information, long buried in an ancient computer file. If it is true, then Christopher Sim was a fraud.

    I enjoyed the story, but the narrator detracted from it due to many mispronunciations. I don't know how many times I yelled NUCLEAR NOT NUCULAR and DE-MOS-THE-NES NOT DE-MOS-THENES! It became very annoying.

    Whether dueling with new forensics or the local old boys' network, irreverent defense attorney Andy Carpenter always leaves them awed with his biting wit and winning fourth-quarter game plan. But the fun stops the day Andy's dad, Paterson, New Jersey's legendary ex-DA, drops dead in front of him at a game in Yankee Stadium.

    I was looking for a new series to start and stumbled on this one. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and am looking forward to the next one. Like one of the previous reviewers, I noticed a jump in the action where one second they were doing a deposition and the next second they were in court, but otherwise a great book.

    Story

    I thoroughly enjoyed the story line and interplay between the characters. However, I found the frequent use of the F word offensive, I know Marines talk like that, but if I wanted to hear it, I'd be a Marine. For this reason, and for this reason ONLY, I won't be listening to any more of the books in this series. It's a shame because, as I said, the story itself is excellent.

    Pepe may have soft white fur, big brown eyes, and mucho attitude - but he's no furry fashion fad. Pepe can talk - even if his new owner, Geri Sullivan, seems to be the only person who can understand him. When Geri takes on her first assignment for a quirky investigator named Jimmy G and stumbles over a Seattle millionaire's corpse, Pepe proves to be worth his weight in liver treats.

    The book was pretty cute. Not hilarious, like other reviewers said, but cute. Pepe reminded me of my chihuahua, who I had to put down last year at the age of 15, so I guess that's why I don't want to listen to further books in the series just yet.

    A renaissance fair is coming to the relatively quiet college town of Farberville, Arkansas. Though resistant to getting involved, Claire Malloy, local bookseller and mother of the perpetually petulant teen Caron, finds herself drawn into the strange inner workings of the group putting on the fair. But a dark mood falls over the festivities when one of the organizers is a victim of arson, and her body is found in the burned wreckage of her rented house. Someone is definitely dead - but is it murder?

    The book was pretty good. I expected it to be funnier, like Joan Hess' Arly Hanks series, but it was alright. It did get a little confusing when, about 6:45 into Chapter 11, Claire was magically transported from her couch with Peter to her office with Edward. Is that actually in the book, or did the narrator skip a page or 2?

She's a successful blacksmith, known for her artistic wrought-iron creations. But somehow Meg's road to contentment is more rutted and filled with potholes than seems fair.

But she soon finds that her new life isn’t all truffles and bonbons… Clementine Ripley, the defense attorney everyone loves to hate, is throwing a party that calls for several thousand dollars worth of custom chocolates - some made in the image of her champion cat.

    When I read the previous reviews on this book, I was skeptical, but decided to listen anyway. I completely disagree with the previous reviews. I enjoyed the book enough to buy the next one, and Teresa DeBerry did a very good job narrating. I appreciate the main character having a slight Texas accent, since she IS from Texas.

    Adrian Monk has journeyed into the realm of the cult science fiction show Beyond Earth, where he meets fans just as obsessive as he is. Monk is at their convention because there may be a killer lurking in the Beyond Earth community: someone in a starship uniform has very publicly gunned down the show's legendary creator, Conrad Stipe. Could a fan be that furious at him for selling out to an exploitative Hollywood producer? Or is there more going on behind the scenes in Stipe's life?

    The book was OK, but the end didn't make sense. Apparently, some pages were skipped because Natalie was in the building, in the car, then in the building again. And she mentioned driving through the window, which never happened - at least in the reading it didn't! Please be sure the entire book is read; otherwise, why are we buying them from Audible???
