    After a devastating flood orphaned Noelle Brown, she thought her handsome and charming benefactor, Andrew Paige, could be the man of her dreams. So why did his steely-eyed older stepbrother, Jared Dunn, make her heart race and her breath catch in her throat?Desperado turned lawman, Jared had come home to Fort Worth, Texas, ready to leave his dangerous past behind. The green-eyed, feisty young woman his stepbrother had taken in wasn’t the gold digger Jared had expected. Far from it....

    Story

    Noelle is one of those books that starts out slowly, and you wonder if you're going to like it. Then the characters come to life, and you find yourself doing anything you can, just to keep the ear-buds in, so you can listen. It's the typical kind of love story, where they both love each other, but neither one of them is aware of the others feelings. It grows exasperating, waiting for the predictable outcome. But, nonetheless it's an enjoyable read, for those that like Chic Flicks.

    In the mid-19th century, Leonie Russell works alongside her husband, Junius, an oysterman in the Washington Territory. At night she continues her father’s lifelong obsession - collecting artifacts and studying the native culture that once thrived in the area. On her 37th birthday, Leonie discovers a mummy protruding from a riverbank - a mummy that by all evidence shouldn’t exist. As Leonie searches for clues to the mummy’s origins, she begins to feel a strangely mystical connection to it. When Junius’s long-lost son, Daniel, appears one day, a native elder insists that Leonie wear a special shell bracelet for protection.

    Story

    This has to be one of the best stories I've heard lately. Leonie Russell's world is turned upside down, when she discovers a mysterious mummy in the river close to her home. She and her husband Junius find Indian artifacts for a buyer from the Smithsonian. This mummy however, has a message for Leonie that unsettles the life she has known for the past twenty years and she's in no rush to give her up.
    Clue after clue surfaces in this tale and had me speculating throughout as to what the mummy was trying to covey. Then when a link to Jun's past appears at the door, everything completely unravels in everybody's world.
    I loved these characters and the world they lived in was so descriptive you can imagine being there.
    Completely deprived me of sleep, as I couldn't put it down.

    Taryn Warner is a wolf shifter with extraordinary healing skills - and serious problems. First, her father is determined that she mate for life with a wolf shifter named Roscoe Weston, whom the feisty Taryn can’t stand. To make matters worse, she’s also been kidnapped by Trey Coleman, a dangerous alpha male from another pack. And as much as she wants to resist Trey, Taryn is incredibly, maddeningly attracted to him.

    Story

    R rated or X rated, take your pick. This book is not a YA werewolf romance. It's hard core sex, but has it's place in this love story of two very strong alpha wolves. What I like about Taryn, is that she was a strong character, so none of that whiny female always doing the wrong thing and misinterpreting everything going on around her. This female is bold, hardened from her upbringing, but not without her problems. Trey tends to easily go feral from his unfortunate upbringing, until Taryn calms him and his wolf. Not a bad story as the couple form an alliance with their own personal motives, that we all know will eventually end with true love.

    Author of the National Book Award-winning All the Pretty Horses, Cormac McCarthy is one of the most provocative American stylists to emerge in the last century. The striking novel Blood Meridian offers an unflinching narrative of the brutality that accompanied the push west on the 1850s Texas frontier.

    Story

    I have read several McCarthy books and have loved them. However, this one did little for me. I kept wanting to just quit and listen to something else, but was interested in "The Kid" enough to keep going. I wish I would have stopped half way through.
    I'm like some of the other listeners, thinking that if I had read it rather than try to listen, I might have gotten more from the story. I tended to let my mind wander away and ended up lost at points. The narrator did an excellent job, I think it's more in the writing style that made this story hard to follow.

  • Stormy Weather

    Stormy Weather centers on the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew. The devastation of the storm has attracted crowds of voyeurs and impostors to Florida. Drawn by the chance to prey on Andrew's victims, misfits like the murderous ex-con Snapper and the dangerously seductive Edie find easy targets for their insurance scams. They're not prepared, though, when they meet their opposition, led by a hoary ex-governor who smokes toads.

    Both hilariously funny and deadly accurate, Carl Hiaasen's novel will take you into a Florida that is far from the frilly palms and pink flamingos of its post cards.

    Story

    Kept me in stitches, as usual. Another madcap zany tale from Carl Hiaasen brought to life superbly by George Wilson. There's no way to tell all the antics in this story, other than there's been a major hurricane in Florida, and everyone is either suffering from the effects or out to make a quick buck from residents suffering. Somehow Carl Hiaasen makes tragedy humorous with everyone getting their just due in the end. A favorite character of mine is back in this tale, Skink (the ex-governor) with the help of Trooper Jim straighten out the criminals and help to play match maker in the process. If you enjoy 'off the wall' humor, then give this one a listen.

    When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, Mrs. Quine just thinks her husband has gone off by himself for a few days - as he has done before - and she wants Strike to find him and bring him home. But as Strike investigates, it becomes clear that there is more to Quine's disappearance than his wife realizes. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows.

    Story

    This is turning out to be a great series to follow. I hope she keeps up the good work. This book deals with a missing person that Cormoran is hired to find, of course he's found dead very early, which puts Cormoran's client on the suspect list.
    This book picks up where the first one left off, with Cormoran dealing with his own engagement breakup and Charlotte's quick engagement to another man, along with his personal struggles with his own abuse of his leg. Robin is engaged to Matthew, and he doesn't like Cormoran, along with Cormoran not understanding Robin's pursuit to be a private eye.
    We see all the personal things going on in the middle of solving the murder case, and what a complex list of suspects we have. All authors or publishers with their own set of little eccentricities that delights the listener as the story unfolds. The book keeps you wondering til the very end, and the narrator couldn't be better.

    Story

    Not since Outlander have I enjoyed this series so much. This novel was right back to the roots of Jamie and Claire's love. A deeply romantic novel that makes you sigh, chuckle, and rejoice, bringing all the key characters together helping one another throughout their individual hardships. A few old characters, thought to be lost make cameo appearances here and there, for a fun and unique spin in the story.
    As usual, this is a long one that could have been shortened a bit by leaving out some boring surgery and filler in the last part of the novel, that just didn't seem to have much relevance. Luckily though, the majority of the novel dealt with character development making the 45 hours fly by, and not leaving us with a dozen chliffhangers like the previous book. A couple of threads are left dangling for the next installment, but for the most part we did see a conclusion to this novel, which I will probably listen to again just for the mere pleasure of it.

    Story

    I really like the story this author has to tell, but don't know that I'll continue with the series. This story starts out with an open-shut case for Jackson, that ends up being a 'who Really done it?'. You think you have things figured out, but she tends to drop a rather unknown character in the mix at the end, which I'm not complaining about. I don't enjoy always knowing the ending in advance, which happens quite often.
    What I don't like about these books is the way the author is constantly preaching her beliefs, to us, the readers. In this story the author sets out to clear up everyone's misconceptions about homosexuals, as well as what natural remedy to take as a sleep aid, and how grilling meat is bad for you. It's just TOO much at times, and tends to ruin the whole book for me. It's a shame because I really thought the murder mystery was a good one.

    A very English book, so I had to accustom myself to the wording, in which the narrator did a great job of delivering all the appropriate punch lines.
    It's about a new graduate from his police internship, that finds himself paired with the wizard of the squad, soon to learn that magic really exists. Peter Grant is now the newest apprentice helping to solve a rash of murders leaving it's victims faceless.
    In his new line of work he meets some really interesting characters guaranteed to give the reader a chuckle at times, when they're behaving themselves.
    Dresden fans will most likely also like this story.

    Story

    This series is on the order of the Midnight Breed and the Black Dagger Brotherhood. We have a group of good dragon warriors fighting against the other group of bad dragon warriors out to take over the world and kill all the humans. Of course along the way, the good dragons find the loves of their lives converting them to dragon ways, becoming part of the dragon commune. It all sounds cliche, which it is, but I enjoy a series like this now and then just for the fantasy, and a break from my usual crime thrillers. This being the second of the series, we are introduced to a couple new characters and the old ones are becoming familiar urging me to read the next installment to see if eventually good will triumph over evil.
