    Wisteria Lane has nothing on these grandes dames of mystery. In the expert hands of two of the mystery world's top storytellers, being a housewife takes on a whole new meaning.These two never-before-published stories by Nevada Barr and Sara Paretsky explore the dark side of the housewife psyche and are guaranteed to delight.

    Crude. Meaningless. I did not expect the bad language. I like Nevada Barr but not everything she write/reads has positive impact.

    When the skeleton of a young girl, not yet a teenager, is discovered in Acadia, Canada, Tempe Brennan is reminded of Evangelina, her best friend in her preteen years, who was mysteriously taken away when she was 12. Evangelina was from strange and faraway Acadia. She was named after Evangeline in the Longfellow poem, and loved poetry. Tempe found her exotic and glamorous, and then suddenly she was gone, and Tempe was told not to try to find her, that she was "dangerous".

    Sent me back to Audible to get more of her books. Great story, got an education and good charaters. Good reader too.

    When Hannah's mother's cherished cake knife is used to kill a beautiful out-of-towner at the town of Lake Eden's annual Christmas party, the stage is set for Hannah to once again unmask a killer.

    Lee says: "Another charming Fluke story"
    "No depth."
    Overall

    The story was too surface - no depth to the characters and the story was too grade school. Maybe that's what was intended - I don't know.

    Goldy Schulz is thrilled to be catering a holiday breakfast feast for the staff of the Aspen Meadow Library. But little does she know that on the menu, alongside the Great Expectations Grapefruit, Chuzzlewit Cheese Pie, and Bleak House Bars, is a large helping of murder.

    Had I read the book I would have kept my image of the charaters. I wish I would have. The reader was too old sounding, too tired. The story was okay - not as good as previous books in the series.

    Born a generation apart and with very different ideas about love and family, Mariam and Laila are two women brought jarringly together by war, by loss, and by fate. As they endure the ever escalating dangers around them, in their home as well as in the streets of Kabul, they come to form a bond that makes them both sisters and mother-daughter to each other, and that will ultimately alter the course not just of their own lives but of the next generation.

    David says: "Somber but gripping"
    "Another Fabulous Book"
    Overall

    Thank you for another view of the conflict in Afganistan. It was riviting. I'll be looking for another to continue to expand my understanding of the conflict.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Never before has an author’s narration of his fiction been so important to fully grasping the book’s impact and global implications. Taking us from Afghanistan in the final days of its monarchy to the present, The Kite Runner is the unforgettable story of the friendship between two boys growing up in Kabul. Their intertwined lives, and their fates, reflect the eventual tragedy of the world around them.

    Joseph says: "A storyteller's story"
    "Fabulous"
    Overall

    I can hardly wait until his next book. I learn so much about the personal conflict in a war zone and in particular about Afganistan and Muslins. And the author as the reader with the accenting of the read was great - it really put me in the moment.

    From the vivid opening vista, high in craggy mountains, to the final haunting glimpse of a moonlit canyon, Nevada Barr's first mystery, Track of the Cat, instantly caught the attention of readers and reviewers. Its popularity gained it both an Agatha and an Anthony Award.

    Overall

    The actual story is very good. I really like Nevada Barr novels. However, it was very irritating to have to listen to the reader swallow constantly - almost after each sentence. I could hardly finish the audio. Was she sick or had a dry throat?
