    To most people, Fiona Bristow seems to have an idyllic life — a quaint house on an island off Seattle’s coast, a thriving dog-training school, and a challenging volunteer job performing canine search and rescue. Not to mention her three intensely loyal Labs. But Fiona got to this point by surviving a nightmare.

    Overall

    I bought this becuase it was on sale and thought I would give it a try. I enjoyed the interaction of the 2 main characters and the storyline. I did think it was way too long and it went in to too many details about dog training (which I have to admit that I picked up a few pointers). Not bad.

    New York Times best-selling author Katy Evans expands upon the intense love story begun in Real - this time from Remington "Riptide" Tate's point of view. Underground fighter Remington Tate is a mystery, even to himself. His mind is dark and light, complex and enlightening. At times his actions and moods are carefully measured, and at others, they spin out of control.

    Would you try another book from Katy Evans and/or Sebastian York?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    All this book talked about was how Remy lusted after Brook in steamy details. I kept listening hoping a plot or storyline would develop but no. I stopped listening. Wait a waste!

    It begins with a chilling phone call to Casey Woods. And ends with another girl dead. College-age girls with long red hair. Brutally murdered, they're posed like victims in a film noir. Each crime scene is eerily similar to the twisted fantasy of a serial offender now serving thirty years to life - a criminal brought to justice with the help of Forensic Instincts. Call. Kill. Repeat. But the similarities are more than one psychopath's desire to outdo another.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This being the third book in the series, why did you switch narrators? The original narrator, a male. This one, a female, was hard to listen to. She enunciates at the end of each word.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The interaction of the characters.


    What didn’t you like about Angela Dawe’s performance?

    Her enunciation of the last word in each sentence. IT started to get on my nerves.

    For Lieutenant Eve Dallas of the NYPSD, the job is a useful reminder of what she has to be grateful for this season. Hosting Roarke's big Irish family for the holiday may be challenging, but it’s a joyful improvement on her own dark childhood. Other couples aren’t as lucky as Eve and Roarke. The Reinholds, for example, are lying on the floor of their Downing Street apartment, stabbed and bludgeoned almost beyond recognition. Those who knew them are stunned - and even more heartbroken by the overwhelming evidence that they were murdered by their own son.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I truly enjoy this series but I found this one a bit too graphic. Usually the murders have already been committed when Lt. Dallas shows up to solve. This one the reader had to live through the violence.


    What does Susan Ericksen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The voices of the characters - Amazing!

    People start dropping dead around Charlie, giant ravens perch on his building, and it seems that everywhere he goes, a dark presence whispers to him from under the streets. Strange names start appearing on his nightstand notepad, and before he knows it, those people end up dead, too. Yup, it seems that Charlie Asher has been recruited for a new job, an unpleasant but utterly necessary one: Death.

    When Katie appears in the small North Carolina town of Southport, her sudden arrival raises questions about her past. Beautiful yet self-effacing, Katie seems determined to avoid forming personal ties until a series of events draws her into two reluctant relationships: one with Alex, a widowed store owner with a kind heart and two young children; and another with her plainspoken single neighbor, Jo. Despite her reservations, Katie begins to let down her guard, putting down roots in the close-knit community..

    Ruth Adamson says: "Not Nicholas Sparks best, but ok"
    "Loved it!"
    Overall

    This book will have all of your emotions working but it is well worth it! I picked it because it takes place in Southport where I have visited but ended up loving every word.

    The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald's portrait of the Jazz Age in all its decadence and excess, is, as editor Maxwell Perkins praised it in 1924, "a wonder". It remains one of the most widely read, translated, admired, imitated, and studied 20th-century works of American fiction.

    Redhawk Readers says: "Something you won't fall asleep to..."
    "UGH"
    Overall

    I didn't make it through this one. Hard to believe it is a classic.

    P.S. Tim, your interpretation of the female voice is NOT good.

    Music has set the tone for most of Zoe Baxter’s life. And it’s music that brings her back to love. When fertility issues lead to a divorce, Zoe throws herself into her career as a music therapist. As an unexpected friendship with a woman slowly blossoms into love, she makes plans for a new life, but to her shock and inevitable rage, some people - even those she loves and trusts most - don’t want that to happen.

    CDN says: "A Good Listen (except the music)"

    This was not my favoirte Jodi Picoult book. It focused too much on religious issues for me. Good ending.

    Dean Robillard is the Chicago Stars' hotshot quarterback. Not only does he have lightening reflexes on the field, he is also utterly gorgeous. First seen in the critically acclaimed Match Me If You Can, Dean is trying to recover (both mentally and physically) from a shoulder injury by taking a road trip. Along the way he meets Blue, a beautiful woman down on her luck, and as they spend more time together their attraction grows.

    I really enjoyed this book. I was looking for a light read and found the perfect match. I even listened to it a second time. Couldn't get enough of Blue and Dean.

    Nicole Krauss' first novel, Man Walks Into a Room, was shortlisted for the Los Angeles Times Book Award and her short fiction has been collected in Best American Short Stories. Now The History of Love proves Krauss is among our finest and freshest literary voices.

    This is the ONLY audible book I didn't finish. I just couldn't get the connection of the stories.
