I have limited mobility so the kindle has allowed me freedom to buy and enjoy materials without leaving home. Love it.

    During an afternoon of baptizing over 800 people, Pastor Rick Warren realized it was time for change. He told his congregation he needed to lose weight and asked if anyone wanted to join him. He thought maybe 200 people would sign up, instead he witnessed a movement unfold as 15,000 people lost over 260,000 pounds in the first year. With assistance from medical and fitness experts, Pastor Rick and thousands of people began a journey to transform their lives.Welcome to The Daniel Plan.

    Would you try another book from the authors and/or Tom Parks?

    I did not like this book because I was not able to follow along, neither was I able to check back to previously read sections. The marterial was useful, just could not coordinate with the study guide. Guess I need the book in hand so that I can mark it, as needed


    Would you be willing to try another book from the authors? Why or why not?

    Not an audio book


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I think it was just not the format for me


    Did The Daniel Plan inspire you to do anything?

    Yes, I am doing it online. It is a good plan. It makes you think about what you are eating and why
    It also helps you to grow spiritually.

    Colorado caterer Goldy Schulz cooks up bigtrouble as she tries to help her longtime friend and fellow chef Yolanda Garcia. When the rental house shared by Yolanda and her irrepressible aunt Ferdinanda is destroyed by arson, the pair move in with cop-turned-PI Ernest McLeod. But then Ernest is shot dead and his house is set on fire, nearly killing Goldy, Yolanda, Ferdinanda, and nine beagle puppies that Ernest had recently rescued from a puppymill. Concerned for her friends, Goldy invites them to stay with her while the sheriff’s department investigates. Yet even Goldy's house isn't safe....

    Would you consider the audio edition of Crunch Time to be better than the print version?

    Did not read the print version.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    As always my favorite character was Goldie, she gets into tangles that seem impossible to get out of, but she does with flair.


    Have you listened to any of Barbara Rosenblat’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This performance was exactly as expected, very good and expressive.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was light hearted, but there periods of sadness.


    Any additional comments?

    Glad they finally got rid of the jerk, he was no longer relevant. Can not wait to see who will replace his character.

    Two dead bodies changed the course of my life that fall. One of them I knew and the other I'd never laid eyes on until I saw him in the morgue. The first was a local PI of suspect reputation. He'd been gunned down near the beach at Santa Teresa. It looked like a robbery gone bad. The other was on the beach six weeks later. He'd been sleeping rough. Probably homeless. No identification. A slip of paper with Millhone's name and number was in his pants pocket. The coroner asked her to come to the morgue to see if she could ID him.

    Before Stephanie can even step foot off Flight 127, Hawaii to Newark, she’s knee deep in trouble. Her dream vacation turned into a nightmare, and she’s flying back to New Jersey solo. Worse still, her seatmate never returned to the plane after the L.A. layover. Now he’s dead, in a garbage can, waiting for curbside pickup. His killer could be anyone. And a ragtag collection of thugs and psychos, not to mention the FBI, are all looking for a photograph the dead man was supposed to be carrying.
