    Davis Way thinks she's hit the jackpot when she lands a job as the fifth wheel on an elite security team at the fabulous Bellissimo Resort and Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi. But once there, she runs straight into her ex-ex husband, a rigged slot machine, her evil twin, and a trail of dead bodies.

    Would you listen to Double Whammy again? Why?

    Yes. Because some of the character's thoughts are so funny. I would enjoy listening again.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Davis Way. Because of her name, where she is from, her personality and sarcasm.


    Which character – as performed by Dina Pearlman – was your favorite?

    Davis Way, definitely.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Just entertaining overall. The author and narrator did a great job making me feel the characters and understand their thoughts/actions.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait for the next book in the series! Please keep Dina Pearlman as the narrator -- she IS Davis Way.

    Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. "Jess and Jason," she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost. And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good? Compulsively readable, The Girl on the Train is an emotionally immersive, Hitchcockian thriller and an electrifying debut.

    What disappointed you about Guilt by Association?

    It tries hard, but never takes off.


    What could Marcia Clark have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I don't care to know the characters -- make them more interesting.


    What didn’t you like about January LaVoy’s performance?

    Not enough variation in characters.


    What character would you cut from Guilt by Association?

    I only got 1/3 of the way through ... so it's hard to say. I just couldn't finish it.


    Any additional comments?

    Make at least ONE of the characters interesting, if not likable.

    Grace Stanton’s life as a rising media star and beloved lifestyle blogger takes a surprising turn when she catches her husband cheating and torpedoes his pricey sports car straight into the family swimming pool. Grace suddenly finds herself locked out of her palatial home, checking account, and even the blog she has worked so hard to develop in her signature style. Moving in with her widowed mother, who owns and lives above a rundown beach bar called The Sandbox, is less than ideal. So is attending court-mandated weekly "divorce recovery" therapy sessions with three other women and one man for whom betrayal seems to be the only commonality. When their “divorce coach” starts to act suspiciously, they decide to start having their own Wednesday "Ladies' Night" sessions at The Sandbox, and the unanticipated bonds that develop lead the members of the group to try and find closure in ways they never imagined. Can Grace figure out a new way home and discover how strong she needs to be to get there?

    What did you love best about Ladies' Night?

    The premise and character development.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I really liked Ashley, because her self-involvement was so entertaining. It was entertaining to hear her thought process (as she unapologetically thought of no one but herself). Of course, in real life, I would stay as far away as possible!


    If you could take any character from Ladies' Night out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    The dog, of course!

At thirty-five, he is the youngest partner at New York City's most prestigious law firm, with a beautiful wife and a perfect daughter. When Alex's father suddenly passes away, Alex is introduced to Michael Ohlig, a rich and powerful man who holds an almost mythical place in his family lore. But Alex is surprised when Ohlig admits that he's in serious legal trouble, accused of crimes involving hundreds of millions of dollars.

    Would you be willing to try another one of David LeDoux’s performances?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Some good plot twists, but overall I just found the characters' whining annoying.

    FBI Special Agent Kate O’Hare is known for her fierce dedication and discipline on the job, chasing down the world’s most wanted criminals and putting them behind bars. Her boss thinks she is tenacious and ambitious; her friends think she is tough, stubborn, and maybe even a bit obsessed. And while Kate has made quite a name for herself for the past five years the only name she’s cared about is Nicolas Fox - an international crook she wants in more ways than one.

    What made the experience of listening to The Heist the most enjoyable?

    The storyline and narrator's performance. I laughed out loud more than once, which isn't typical.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Heist?

    I don't want to give it away, but it involves El Pollo Loco.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    Sometimes a male doesn't seem to be able to capture a female character's personality, but Scott did. I never found myself rolling my eyes at the way he brought any of the characters to life, including the females. (Same is true for female narrators, by the way. I am an equal opportunity complainer.) :)


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Fall in love with a con man, get played, and come back for more.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait for more books in the series!!! And keep Scott as the narrator, please!

    Nothing. I probably should have realized from the publisher's summary that it would be boring. Just not for me. I couldn't relate to any of the characters.

    Ten excited guests arrive at the Westlake Estate, expecting a lavish retreat. They are the winners of a sweepstakes to "Live Like a Billionaire for a Week." But what was supposed to be a promising escape soon turns into a horrific nightmare. Within hours of arrival, the guests sit down for an extravagant dinner. When they pull their party poppers as instructed, a loud chorus of bangs resounds, followed by earsplitting screams as the guest seated at the head of the table bursts into flames and slumps to the floor.

    Would you try another book from Anthony Zuiker and/or Gildart Jackson?

    No


    What could Anthony Zuiker have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Make it somewhat plausible


    Would you be willing to try another one of Gildart Jackson’s performances?

    No


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I enjoyed the narrator's accent ... probably the only thing that kept me listening as long as I did. I gave up after the fourth murder. Just don't care "whodunnit" enough to keep keep listening.
