Once again Karen White delivered a good story, based in a clearly described Southern setting with characters that came to life.
I love Mary Kay Andrews - always download one of her books when I want to listen to something that I can not only identify with and also that I know will make me laugh out loud.
Intricate story, solid romance and decent murder mystery! Characters were clear and believable. I keep thinking that one day I will pick up a Nora Roberts book that I won't like - but it hasn't happened yet.
As much as I enjoyed Beth Hoffman's "Saving CeeCee Honeycutt" I think I enjoyed her newest book "Looking For Me" even more. Ms. Hoffman does a great job conveying real Southern scenery & portrays truly charming Southern characters.
"Looking for Me" has a believable yet somewhat mystical story line that had me wanting to drive for just a little a while longer each day (in addition to my normally heinous daily commute to work) in order to hear just a little more of Teddy's story.
I do hope to read many, many more Beth Hoffman novels in the future.
Scott Brick always does a superb job of narration - you truly forget that you are listening to a narrator and not to individual voices. Gregg Hurwitz always provides a phenomenal story with twists & turns that are believeable and scary at the same time. Read more/listen to more Hurwitz - you will not be disappointed!
The pure imagination it must have taken to come up with this plot & storyline. This is old school Nora Roberts - at her absolute best.
That her transition from male to female voices becomes invisible - you don't realize when she is making the voice changes because she is so good at distinguishing between the characters.
Absolutely - but I listen to audiobooks while commuting - so there is a pretty fixed amount of time I listen to audiobooks each week (but liek with this book - I find myself wanting to sit in the car until some "good part" of the book is finishing up before I turn it off!
Loved it! Love her more "romance novel" type books as well, but this book had a great plot, wonderful characterizations and lots of details that made you feel like you in the middle of that small Arkansas town - standing right next to the main characters.
Gregg Hurwitz's plots are so detailed that they become believable and therefore frighteningly real.
Gregg Hurwitz is always enjoyable and scary and real.
Would listen again & again (but don't have time to even listen to all of the new books I want to hear!)
Always Southern in charm & always desriptive enough to bring you right into each scene.
Knowing that this is loosely based on her grandparents early lives makes this sotry all the more real.
I loved how the nuns' early influence was recalled throughout the character's lives.
All of the characters were solid and yet expansive - ever growing over time.
I love all of Adriana Trigiani's books - from Lucia, Lucia to Brava, Valentina - I will snap a new one up as soon as I see it published - do not even have to read a synopsis because I know I will enjoy each and every word.
Stayed on the edge of my seat througout. Would never have guessed who was after this man or his daughter or why.
Shep - the safe cracker - whose motto of "the only things that matter in life are stamina & loyalty".
I think Scott Brick could read me the back of a cereal box and I would stay interested!
A strong case for the fact that life does not necessarily have to "repeat itself"!
Loved the book. Am going to download more Gregg Hurwitz as soon as I have credits!
