    Edgar Award nominee Robert Crais’ L.A. Requiem is a gritty, harrowing look into the minds of a serial killer and the men determined to stop him. Elvis Cole and former cop Joe Pike have been partners in a detective agency for 12 years. After an ex-girlfriend of Pike’s disappears, the girl’s father asks them to help the police with the search. When the missing persons case turns into a hunt for a killer who has been stalking victims in Los Angeles, Cole and Pike find themselves battling both a hostile police department and a madman.

    What made the experience of listening to Honest Illusions the most enjoyable?

    I did not want to purchase this book...it just didn't grab me at first, but I am almost thru all of Nora Roberts extended time books (more than 13 hours). I so enjoyed all of the book. Some a little predictable, but who cares, I didn't. I love the book. Didn't think I would enjoy a book that glamorized thieves, but it was more of a Robin Hood type....it was fun.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The New Orleans scenes. The family created by non biological characters.


    Which character – as performed by Sandra Burr – was your favorite?

    Roxy


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No it's to long...but that's what I like...I feel I get more of my money's worth

    The historic hotel in Boonsboro has endured war and peace, the changing of hands, and even rumored hauntings. Now it’s getting a major face-lift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother. As the architect in the family, Beckett’s social life consists mostly of talking shop over pizza and beer. But there’s another project he’s got his eye on: the girl he’s been waiting to kiss since he was sixteen.

    Owen is the organizer of the Montgomery clan, running the family’s construction business with an iron fist - and an even less flexible spreadsheet. And though his brothers give him grief for his compulsive list making, the Inn BoonsBoro is about to open right on schedule. The only thing Owen didn’t plan for was Avery MacTavish... Avery’s popular pizza place is right across the street from the inn, giving her a firsthand look at its amazing renovation - and a newfound appreciation for Owen.

    What made the experience of listening to The Last Boyfriend the most enjoyable?

    I fell in love with the characters in the book. I felt committed and vested after listening to the first book. The personalities made me laugh and were so relatable


    What did you like best about this story?

    All of it...especially loved Lizzy!


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

    Can't say enough about MacLeod...he must be one hunk of a man to be able to capture the rough and tough and sweet and tender! Amazing!


    Who was the most memorable character of The Last Boyfriend and why?

    Avery...loved her...I want to be more like her...strong yet not full of herself...so real.

    Story

    Ryder is the hardest Montgomery brother to figure out - with a tough-as-nails outside and possibly nothing too soft underneath. He’s surly and unsociable, but when he straps on a tool belt, no woman can resist his sexy swagger. Except, apparently, Hope Beaumont, the innkeeper of his own Inn BoonsBoro.... As the former manager of a D.C. hotel, Hope is used to excitement and glamour, but that doesn’t mean she can’t appreciate the joys of small-town living. She’s where she wants to be - except for in her love life....

    Would you listen to The Perfect Hope again? Why?

    Yes...such a wonderful book...loved the characters, the family, the men, the women, all of it.


    Have you listened to any of MacLeod Andrews’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The best by far! I wish he did more of Nora's books. He is so perfect for the all the characters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laughed.


    Any additional comments?
