    The Gingerbreadman, psychopath, sadist, genius, and killer, is on the loose. But it isn't Jack Spratt's case. He and Mary Mary have been demoted to Missing Persons following Jack's poor judgment involving the poisoning of Mr. Bun the baker. Missing Persons looks like a boring assignment until a chance encounter leads them into the hunt for missing journalist Henrietta "Goldy" Hatchett, star reporter for The Daily Mole.

    I read Over Easy: A Nusery Crime and couldn't get enough. This is the funniest book I've read in a while and NEED to read more. Super sharp wit. I would recommend this and any Jasper Fforde story that comes along. Simon Vance gives excellent voice.

    This story was very long and drawn out and really needed someone to condense it. Not really sure why so many good reviews for this book because it took too long to get anywhere and by the time it got there I wasn't interested anymore. Only really why it's getting two stars is because she finally wrapped it up and it wasn't that horrible. Still not sure why we needed to know everything she through in there and the lead wasn't sympathetic and did things you didnt' understand until we got the explaination AT THE END. Don't waste your time.

    Running from an abusive past, nurse Chloe Moreno arms herself with a new identity and seeks an uncomplicated life in Eden Falls. But her security in the once-peaceful community is crumbling fast. Not only is there a kidnapper on the loose, but it seems her worst nightmare has tracked her down. She needs someone to trust…and no one fits the bill better than Dr. Derek Colton. Resident healer and protector: that's all Derek is expected to be. A new relationship - especially with his beautiful, vulnerable new nurse - is a risk he shouldn't take. Yet her life's in his hands....

    Apparently I am a prude I didn’t' think so but I guess I am. I guess I didn't like the fact that she was still married during this. Also some of the conversations between the men didn’t seem like verbiage they would use in real life. I do want to finish the Coltons of Eden Falls story line, I’m also not any worse off from having read this but I wish I knew these characters better. Perhaps that will come with the other books?

    Marketing exec Gabrielle Flannery isn't what you'd call the outdoorsy type. But after an embarrassing incident with a potted plant leaves Gabrielle revealing more leg than a Thanksgiving turkey, she decides it's time to reassert herself. Even if it means going head-to-head with marketing golden boy and the office Hottie McHot, Dell Kingston, over an outdoor gear account.

    It was a good quick listen, didn't have to think much. I also don't think the characters made silly decisions which can be the case in so many of the romances. Wasn't completely blown away but I recommend to a friend.

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    Story

    This was horrible and I feel sad for everyone who thought this was good. Letters to Penthouse have more depth to them than this. It was horribly written, same words (gaze, murmur, mutter) used over and over. When she actually did discover a thesaurus she used the word Ad nauseam. The only people who should read/listen to this are aspiring writers as a "What Not To Do" guide. Really sad I wasted my time on this.

    Darcy Gordon lives in fear of the past catching up with her. So when a horrible accident injures her boss, she can't shake the thought that it was meant for her. And her problems only worsen when her boss's brother, FBI agent Patrick Devereux, comes to town asking questions. If it wouldn't raise so many suspicions, she'd be packing her bags and leaving Chicago. So she does her best to stay under the radar. Patrick's fierce good looks and razor-sharp stare have her stomach in knots...and her heart racing.

    This was my first Whispersync novel and let me tell you I loved that feature. Now I only want books that do that. Only problem is I hated how this book was narrated. If I only listened to the book I don't think I would have been able to get through it. Didn't like the voices she used and thought the accents were bad. But I liked the book was tense when I needed to be and teared up at the sappy part

    The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.

    It was OK. Interesting towards the climax but I wasn’t a big fan of the ending. Plus I couldn’t get into the narrator. All the voices sounded like old men even when it was supposed to be a young woman. I didn’t like the “voice” sounded pompous. I wouldn’t listen to it again.

    In the spring of 1974, Calliope Stephanides, a student at a girls' school in Grosse Pointe, finds herself drawn to a chain-smoking, strawberry-blonde classmate with a gift for acting. The passion that furtively develops between them - along with Callie's failure to develop physically - leads Callie to suspect that she is not like other girls. In fact, she is not really a girl at all.

    Sherlock Holmes is the greatest detective in literary history. For the first time since the death of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, a new Holmes story has been sanctioned by his estate, whetting the appetites of fans everywhere. Information about the book will be revealed as deliberately as Holmes himself would unravel a knotty case, but bestselling novelist and Holmes expert Anthony Horowitz is sure to bring a compelling, atmospheric story to life.

    Derek Jacobi did a wonderful job with the narration on this. His voices were clear and different for all characters and the male and female characters had a distinct voice, not like a man trying to sound like a woman and not a woman trying to sound like a man. The story was good as well, although either I'm getting smarter or they dumbed this one down for me.

    Marked by tragedy, traumatized at the age of eight, Michael, now 18, is no ordinary young man. Besides not uttering a single word in 10 years, he discovers the one thing he can somehow do better than anyone else. Whether it's a locked door without a key, a padlock with no combination, or even an eight hundred-pound safe...he can open them all. It's an unforgivable talent. A talent that will make young Michael a hot commodity with the wrong people.

    If you are looking for something you don't have to put too much thought into you can pick up this book to help you pass the time. Also I get the author is trying to make it suspensful so they don't blab out the entire story in one swoop but still.
