    A graduate of a prestigious French culinary school, Peyton has just lost her job as a food critic after rightfully accusing her boss of sexual harassment. Out of work and in a bad place personally, to Peyton a year doing something completely different sounds wonderful. Peyton dives into learning the resort business but is quickly derailed by an escalating chain of events that puts her life in danger. She refuses to be intimidated - until she’s nearly killed. Then she calls on her childhood friend and protector, Finn MacBain, now with the FBI, and asks for his help.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes - I like all of Julie Garwood


    Would you be willing to try another book from Julie Garwood? Why or why not?

    Yes


    How could the performance have been better?

    The Narrator could have been better. She was supposed to be a chef but could not pornounce the name of the place she had studied in France correctly or the name of a high end cooking store - it just bugged me. Still it didnt effect the store line.

    Research scientist Dr. Marina Singh is sent to Brazil to track down her former mentor, Dr. Annick Swenson, who seems to have disappeared in the Amazon while working on an extremely valuable new drug. The last person who was sent to find her died before he could complete his mission. Plagued by trepidation, Marina embarks on an odyssey into the insect-infested jungle in hopes of finding answers to the questions about her friend's death, her company's future, and her own past.

    Any additional comments?

    I like the writing - it really made me feel like I was there but I keep waiting for more to the story. It felt like it was a story about what it was like to live with a tribe in the Amazon. No real story

    When Peter Russell finally meets the woman of his dreams, he falls as madly in love as you can on a flight from New York to L.A. Her name is Holly. She's achingly pretty with strawberry-blonde hair, and she reads Thomas Mann for pleasure. She gives Peter her phone number on a page of The Magic Mountain, but in his room that night, Peter finds the page is inexplicably, impossibly, enragingly...gone.

    Kristina says: "Complete Cheeseville"

    Lame - spent a lot of time rolling my eyes
