    Junie B. does her best, but life just has so many interesting possibilities, which often land her in trouble with the teacher and her parents. No matter how mixed-up things get, one thing's for sure, you'll have a good laugh listening to Junie B.'s adventures!

    This audio book is great. My 7 year old daughter loves it. Boys will find them funny too. We have listened to it so many times that she can recite parts of it. We have read all of the "paper" Junie B books. This is the only audio book available on this website. I wish there were more. If you are picky about use of grammar and proper pronunciation of words you may have an issue with this book. There is nothing offensive. Junie B is a sweet kindergardener with a very active imagination and spirit. The book is written from her perspective, with her words. I think the author does a great job of describing things from this little girl's perspective. The narrator does a great job too. It is hilarious, and you will find yourself laughing along with your kids. I love this book. I hope Audible will make more of them available very soon!!

    Tia and Mike Baye never imagined they'd become the type of overprotective parents who spy on their kids. But their 16-year-old son, Adam, has been unusually distant lately, and after the suicide of his classmate, Spencer Hill they can't help but worry. They install a sophisticated spy program on Adam's computer, and within days they are jolted by a message from an unknown correspondent addressed to their son: "Just stay quiet and all safe."

    Meanwhile, Betsy Hill is struck by a photo that appears to have been taken on the night of her son's death...and he wasn't alone.

    Overall

    First Harlan Coban book I have listened to. I really enjoyed it and it kept me hooked. I will use my credits towards more of his books. Lots of twists and turns - kept me guessing about how all of the characters were connected. Not too much explicit violence... good mix of mystery and suspense. I really enjoyed this book.

    To survive in a game with no rules at all, John Corey must invent a strategy that includes no luck at all. He and the Anti-Terrorist Task Force must stop "The Lion," an alleged Libyan terrorist with the instincts of a wild animal, the bloodlust of a carnivore, and the boldness and speed of a cat of prey.

    CoCo says: "Excellent and engaging"
    "VERY GOOD"
    Overall

    I loved this book and all of the characters. It kept me interested from the beginning to the end, even though it is very long. This was my first DeMille book, and I will eventually get through them all. I just wish Plum Island was available on Audible.com.

    When Chaz Perron's wife discovers that he is running a scam (posing as a marine biologist to doctor water samples so that an agribusiness tycoon can continue illegally dumping fertilizer into the Everglades), he pushes her overboard from a cruise liner. Unlucky for Chaz, Joey survives clutching a bale of Jamaican pot. Rescued from the Atlantic by a former police officer, Mick Stranahan, she decides not to report him but instead haunt and taunt him, with Mick's help, by playing dead.

    "Great!!"
    Overall

    I loved this book. It is one of his best yet. I listened to it on a long road trip (on my iPod with earphones - it is NOT for kids...) and it provided lots of comic relief while driving. I loved the off the wall characters and and the underlying humor that is always present in Hiassen's books. The characters are so well developed and they all have their own quirks. What a great imagination!!! I just wanted the book to keep going. I hope there are more with these same characters. Being a native Miamian, I appreciate the local flavor of these books. I'd love to get in a boat and cruise out and visit Joey and Stranahan..... but I could get shot if I wasn't careful. :)

    When two unhappy women switch homes for the summer, there are extraordinary consequences, and each learns that the other has a deep secret that can never be revealed. At the end of the summer, when the women at last meet face-to-face, they find that they have become, firmly and forever, good friends.

    Overall

    This was a great book. My first by Maeve Binchy. I listened to it on a very long road trip, and really enjoyed it. I keep wishing there was a sequel, so I could find out how all of the characters worked out the rest of their lives. All of the characters are still on my mind. This is a great story of love and loss. The characters are deeply entwined and loyal to each other... or so you think, right up to the end. The kids in the book are funny. The narrator does a wonderful job with the Irish accents, has distinct voices for each of the characters. The American characters are very well done as well. There were just a few "dry" parts, but they kept my interest as well. I wish I could go and visit both Tara Road and the house on Tudor lane in CT and sit down and have some tea with Ria.
