    Leslie Anne Greene Carter is the Last Original Wife among her husband Wesley's wildly successful Atlanta social set. His cronies have all traded in the mothers of their children they promised to love and cherish - till death did them part - for tanned-and-toned young Barbie brides. If losing the social life and close friends she adored wasn't painful enough, a series of setbacks shake Les's world and push her to the edge. She's had enough of playing the good wife to a husband who thinks he's doing her a favor keeping her around. Now, she's going to take some time forherself - in the familiar comforts and stunning beauty of Charleston, her beloved hometown.

    Nicole Ashe is the average American girl, except that she happens to work for a vampire and doesn't realize it. But all that changes when her boss sends her to convince a local rock musician – heartthrob, to help them retrieve an ancient relic that could be the answer to the vampire's curse. There is something about Nicole that stirs Alec's hunger nearly beyond control, but he would do anything to protect her...even from himself.

    Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

    After 499 years of existence, Connor Buchanan has arrived at an inescapable conclusion: he is a cold-hearted SOB. He's been watching his friends - those poor romantic fools - plummet off the cliff into love like a dazed herd of sheep. But not Connor. He knows that love leads to nothing but heartache. Until Marielle.... She is an angel cast down from heaven for disobedience. Trapped in mortal form, she finds a protector in Connor, a Scottish vampire haunted by a dark past.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. Wrong narrator for this type of story.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Gabra Zackman’s performances?

    I have heard her many times, but this was the totally wrong book for her.


    Any additional comments?

    The narration made it impossible for me to finish listening. I love this series, but skip this one!

    For centuries, Lucian Daratrazanoff has been the dark guardian of his people, living a bleak existence of violence and horror. But now his kind, the Carpathians, are dying out or falling prey to the soulless life of vampires. Only by finding his destined life mate can Lucien stave off the ever present lure of the soulless evil. Part man, part predator, Lucian will stop at nothing in order to find his mate. Jaxon Montgomery is anything but ordinary. She is stubborn, independent, but a damn good cop.

    This was a great listen and my favourite listen in the Dark series so far

    She's known him since she was 15. Every night, he is with her: his face, his voice. Tonight, Sara Marten will meet the man who is both angel and demon, salvation and temptation: Falcon - the Carpathian, the banished hero. Tonight, Sara will meet the dark-eyed destroyer destined to be her mate.

    Susan L. Rock says: "The Missing Link"
    "Horrible accent!"
    Overall

    I think that I would have enjoyed this book so much more if the narrator didn't give the men such horrific accents! Very unsexy and distracting! Skip this one.

    Rachel Stone is a widow and single mother, broke and alone. Worse, her late husband, a televangelist, stole five million dollars, none of which came to her. Nor did she know about the theft, but it still makes her an outcast, and she is desperate. Then she meets Gabriel Bonner, who gives her a job. Romantic sparks fly, but love is never easy. Gabriel has a tragic loss of his own, and his family, fearing Rachel's motives, campaigns loudly against her.

    Gina says: "Read Nobody’s Baby first"
    "Definitely not her best..."
    Overall

    This was not of the usual calibre that I have come to expect from SEP or from Anna Fields the narrator. There was none of the witty humour and the voice of the hero was not good. Anna Fields is usually brilliant and believable with male narration, but this book was a disappointment.

    In the late summer of a long-ago year, a killer arrived in a small city. His name was Alton Turner Blackwood, and in the space of a few months he brutally murdered four families. His savage spree ended only when he himself was killed by the last survivor of the last family, a 14-year-old boy. Half a continent away and two decades later, someone is murdering families again, re-creating in detail Blackwood’s crimes.

    sadee poulsen says: "Koontz is back!"
    "Silly"
    Overall

    I didn't realize this book dealt with the "supernatural". I found it silly and ridiculously unbelievable. I would not recommend it for those expecting a murder/mystery.

    When the body of a brutally beaten woman is found on the beach in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, Detective Osama Ibrahim dreads investigating another unsolvable murder - chillingly common in a city where the veils of conservative Islam keep women as anonymous in life as the victim is in death. But Katya, one of the few females in the coroner's office, is determined to identify the woman and find her killer. Aided by her friend Nayir, she soon discovers that the victim was a young, controversial filmmaker named Leila.

    Kathleen Rogers says: "Fascinating glimpse into another culture"
    "worth listening to!"
    Overall

    Even though this book is meant as a mystery, I found that I was riveted mostly to the lifestyle description of Saudi's women.

    Step into the powerhouse life of Bull Meecham. He's all Marine -- fighter pilot, king of the clouds, and absolute ruler of his family. Lillian is his wife -- beautiful, southern-bred, with a core of velvet steel. Without her cool head, her kids would be in real trouble. Ben is the oldest, a born athlete whose best never satisfies the big man. Ben's got to stand up, even fight back, against a father who doesn't give in -- not to his men, not to his wife, and certainly not to his son.

    cort says: "an excellent book"
    "Terrific!!"
    Overall

    This has to be one of my favourite audibles thus far! Pat Conroy is a genius that can keep me laughing/crying from the beginning to the end. The narrator was superb!
