    History has all but forgotten.... In the spring of 1708, an invading Jacobite fleet of French and Scottish soldiers nearly succeeded in landing the exiled James Stewart in Scotland to reclaim his crown. Now, Carrie McClelland hopes to turn that story into her next best-selling novel. Settling herself in the shadow of Slains Castle, she creates a heroine named for one of her own ancestors and starts to write. But then she discovers her novel is more fact than fiction....

    It's hard to believe that this was the first book by this author. I have listened to it twice because it made me laugh, cry and even sometimes holler at it. But I can't wait for her next book, This one should get 10 stars jd

    Would you consider the audio edition of Kill and Tell to be better than the print version?

    Yes!! The reader had a very good voice and knew how to read. Had all the emotions and punc. needed to feel it like i was reading it, really good at her job.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    yes,yes,yes. I caught myself holding my breath a few times.


    Have you listened to any of Natalie Ross???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I didn't recognize her but I have an extensive library which I listen to over and over. I do not reread the so-so or boring ones but all the others I do. I will be listening to this one again.


    Any additional comments?

    I will read other books of this author, if you carry them jd

    Just above the middle...I really had fun listening to this one,


    What aspect of Susan Bennett???s performance would you have changed?

    needs more practice

    Good girls just can't win! High school principal Judy Anne Palmer was always a good girl who never did an impulsive, rebellious thing. Ever. And look where it got her! One night in Dallas, she meets a man and decides to indulge in a liberating night of passion - liberating her from the stigma of being the oldest living virgin north of the Rio Grande. After all, she'll never see her one-night Romeo again. Unfortunately, the night doesn't turn out exactly the way she planned, and her one-night Romeo isn't one-night stand material.

    What disappointed you about Romeo and Judy Anne?

    could not finish the book because the narrator is so bad. The paper back will probably do ok.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Get a different narrator.


    How could the performance have been better?

    use a competent narrator. A good narrator can make or break a booki


    Any additional comments?

    might have been entertaining, but to wooden. The author might make it in 5-10 yrs. jd

    From the moment he beds Desi, Caine knows turmoil will follow. Desi might have the face of a temptress, but she also has a will of iron, and while she needs his protection, she's determined that no man will control her again. They establish an uneasy bond, but it isn't enough for Caine. He wants all Desi has to offer. He wants her screams, her moans, her demands...everything. Yet there's still a bounty on Desi's head, and keeping her sexually satisfied is proving easier than keeping her alive.

    This book wasn???t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This is one of the books that make everyone think they can write. This book is nothing but porn, and very poorly done. Even porn could be written better. people who live unnatural lives.


    What could Sarah McCarty have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Start with a story that hasn't been done before this one. Then include a more normal type and amount of actual sex scenes and not every other paragraph.


    How could the performance have been better?

    This one was very flat. Most people can read, but to do it for others to listen to, they need to learn inflection and tonal nuances.


    You didn???t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    I make notes on authors and readers that I don't like and do not buy them anymore.

    In winter, Brianna Concannon's bed-and-breakfast is a cold and empty place. And that's fine with Brianna. She enjoys the peace and quiet, even when icy winds howl at her window. This year, though, she's expecting an unusual guest: mystery writer Grayson Thane, from America. And sometimes a fire can be born in ice.

    New York Times best-selling author Diana Gabaldon enchanted scores of fans with Outlander, her electrifying historical saga set in 18th-century Scotland. Now this sequel sweeps listeners back into the past as Claire relates more of her perilous sojourn there with her Scottish warrior husband, James Fraser. Twenty years after her strange journey back in time, Claire has returned to Scotland with her daughter, determined to share with her the secret she has harbored since her time travel.

    Shelley says: "I ADORE this series!"

    the author wrote one book over and over again. there are parts that are in every title and very few new parts. I hope she stops now or tries a new subject. Oh yes I am one of the dumbies that keep buying her reprints.

    Woody Allen is at his best here, recounting a recurring dream that casts himself as one of history’s greatest thinkers: the imprisoned and condemned philosopher Socrates. In the face of execution, Allen’s version of Socrates is prepared for an ironic death, if not a noble one.

    His writing is a bad as his movies, this is not worth listening to, even free. jd

    In a Chicago suburb, a dentist is met in his office parking lot by three men and ordered into the trunk of his Lexus. On a downtown sidewalk, Jack Reacher and an unknown woman are abducted in broad daylight by two men - practiced and confident - who stop them at gunpoint and hustle them into the same sedan.

    Keith says: "not the best but okay"
    "Typical Child read"
    Overall

    Tho I am slightly biased, especially of the Jack Reacher books. I almost buy every Child book I see. Wish he were my child (offspring) so I would get them for free. Wish he lives a long and prosperous life and with very good health so he can keep entertaining all his fans. jd
