    Since You're Leaving Anyway, Take Out the Trash is a rollicking Texas mystery debut jam-packed with humor - and a heaping helping of romance to boot! Down in Salt Lick, Texas, a lot of folks got sass, but beauty salon proprietor Debbie Sue Overstreet has a bit more than most.

    "Delightfully Entertaining"
    Overall

    From the beginning I was captured by the author's use of "Texas" colloquialisms. I found myself laughing out loud with "glued zippers" and allergies. Add this to your list this is a fun and entertaining book!

    This mesmerizing first novel tells the epic journey of Lin, an escaped convict who flees maximum security prison in Australia to disappear into the underworld of contemporary Bombay. Accompanied by his guide and faithful friend, Prabaker, Lin searches for love and meaning while running a clinic in one of the city's poorest slums and serving his apprenticeship in the dark arts of the Bombay mafia. The keys to unlock the mysteries that bind Lin are held by two people: his mentor Khader Khan, mafia godfather and criminal-philosopher; and the beautiful, elusive Karla, whose passions are driven by dangerous secrets.

    This is my first exposure to the author Roberts, I pray this will not be his last book!

    I wish I could be as articulate has Roberts to describe to you how incredible and insightful I found this book.
    I never thought much about India, nor it's people, but I now have a new insight and a passion to learn more.
    Roberts described in such vivid details the characters, their personalities and nuances, that you formed a bond with each major character. Just from his discriptions and interaction, you became one with the story, you were there. For a writer to be able to capture the reader and take you with him as though you were experiencing what he was experiencing is a unique talent...many strive for, few obtain.
    I cannot recommend this highly enough.
    Very few times in my reading and listening history have I been so moved and captivated with a book.
    Well worth listening to!!

    "Captivating"
    Overall

    The beginning was slow, and felt like it took too long to set the up the characters, but after the intial staging, I could not stop listening to this book. I was captivated by the hypnotic way she pronounced the names, the places the flamenco. It made me want to research the dance, the places she mentioned and the history of the Gypsy. I was transported back and could hear the guitar the clicking of the shoes and the wailing of poet. I was constantly amazed at the twists and turns as the characters developed matured. I am a romantic, and this book certainly fulfilled my high expectations.

    Three 30-something New Yorkers are smart, sexy divas who seem to have it all. But unfortunately, they look for happiness in all the wrong places. Debut novelist Janine Morris pens this touching story about reevaluating one's life, treasuring what's truly important, and the undeniable strength that comes from sisterhood. Three 30-something New Yorkers are smart, sexy divas who seem to have it all, but unfortunately they look for happiness in all the wrong places.

    Overall

    Although the author beat the subject to death, the funny and witty lines throughout made the audio enjoyable and definetely worth listening to.
