    Only minutes after Abbie Elliot and her three best friends step off of a private helicopter, they enter the most luxurious, sumptuous, sensually pampering hotel they have ever been to. Their lavish presidential suite overlooks Monte Carlo, and they surrender: to the sun and pool, to the sashimi and sake, to the Bruno Paillard champagne. In the morning's harsh light, Abbie awakens on a yacht, surrounded by police. Something awful has happened - something impossible, unthinkable. Abbie, Winnie, Serena, and Bryah are arrested and accused of the foulest crime imaginable.

    Would you listen to Guilty Wives again? Why?

    The story was really good. Even though you could guess "who done it" you weren't sure why or how. The narrator's accents were amusing.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Guilty Wives?

    I don't want to spoil it with my favorite part.


    What does January LaVoy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The voices and accents of the different characters!


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

    Being a mom the children killed me.


    Any additional comments?

    I listen to books for amusement when I am driving or getting ready for work. I am busy and don't have a lot of time to read(even though I love to read.) I could not stop listening to this book. Anytime any of my family members heard parts of this book they wanted to know what was happening. It pulled them all in.

    Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Witness to be better than the print version?

    I have only listened to the audio so I couldn't say.


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

    The girl's mother trying to take her out of witness protection. So cold.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The raspberry vinegar discussion


    Any additional comments?

    The main character reminds me of Temprance Brennam from Bones. Her wording and phrasing made me laugh. It was an interesting story. A fun listen.

  • Deadlocked: A Sookie Stackhouse Novel, Book 12

    Story

    Growing up with telepathic abilities, Sookie Stackhouse realized early on there were things she'd rather not know. And now that she's an adult, she also realizes that some things that she knows about, she'd rather not see—like Eric Northman feeding off another woman. A younger one. There's a thing or two she'd like to say about that, but she has to keep quiet—Felipe de Castro, the Vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), is in town.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    If they were into the series they'd read it anyway. As a stand alone no.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Who knows? I hear Susan Elizabeth Phillips has anew book out she always makes me laugh. I will listen or read the next book in this series even though I was disappointed by this one.


    What three words best describe Johanna Parker’s voice?

    a little cheesy


    Do you think Deadlocked needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes, this one just kinda ended abruptly. It seemed like somethings were just cut off because the author didn't want to deal with them. The thing with Claude and other faeries just leaving kinda left me feeling like the author didn'tknow what to do with them anymore. Then there is the Eric and Sookie relationship issues which just felt cold. The whole book felt wrong and just needs to be made right. It felt as if the author didn't know what to do with the series and just wanted to put something out to keep it going.


    Any additional comments?

    It wasn't what I expected from the other books in the series, I was disappointed, especially after the long wait for it to come out. Now I have to wait again and hope the next is better.
