    Charley Davidson isn’t your everyday, run-of-the-mill grim reaper. She’s more of a paranormal private eye/grim reaper extraordinaire. However, she gets sidetracked when the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, moves in next door. To further complicate matters, Reyes is her main suspect in an arson case. Charley has vowed to stay away from him until she can find out the truth... but then dead women start appearing in her apartment, one after another, each lost, confused, and terrified beyond reason.

    Like all the books in this series this was excellent. Humor, mystery, and great characters. I love her ADD and her friendships that have built and expanded in each book. My only complaint is that is was TOO SHORT! Now I have to wait forever for the next in the series.

    Although I have LOVED this series for a long time, I'm sad to say I have not been to happy with the last two books. I can't even pinpoint why I was disappointed, the characters are still strong and the family ties are even stronger but I just didn't feel the need to listen to it again to see what I might have missed. Which I have done for many of the previous books. I would actually listen to the latest book then go back and re-listen to the series up to the new book to enjoy it all over again. The last few however left me feeling sadly disappointed and/or disgusted and traumatised over what had happened to my favorite characters.

    This sweet, bedtime audiobook tells a story about the nightly contest between Mama Bear and Little Bear as each compete to come up with various comparisons to express their great amount of love for each other. This book was inspired by a nightly game of “I Love You More” between Bailey Thompson and her mom, Kim. For years, mother and daughter competed to come up with the most unusual and meaningful “I Love You More” comparisons.

    Story

    The story is cute and will hold the attention of a young child (mine is currently 5 and loved it). I was a little disappointed that the story is only about 2 -3 minutes long and the rest is lullaby music. I purchased this for my little one because she enjoys the challenge of "I love you more than"... so I expected a little more out of this than what we actually got. The music is nice and peaceful enough to fall asleep to.

    After being murdered by a mystery assailant, navigating his way through the realm between life and death, and being brought back to the mortal world, Harry realizes that maybe death wasn’t all that bad - because he is no longer Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard. He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness. After Harry had no choice but to swear his fealty, Mab wasn’t about to let something as petty as death steal away the prize she had sought for so long.

    Really enjoyed this one. I was a little disappointed in the last one but this one has Dresden back running from one dreadful encounter to the next and yet he still comes out heroic(ish) in the end. Most of my favorite characters are back in key roles, at least those that are close to Dresden. But best of all there are lots of laughs which is one of the main reason I enjoy this series. And I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that James Marsters is back!!!

    It was just another after-work happy-hour bar downtown, where business professionals unwound with a few drinks, complained about the boss, maybe hooked up with someone for the night. Until something went terribly wrong. At first it was just a friction in the air. The noise intensified. The crowd seemed oppressive. Some sharp words were exchanged, some pushing and shoving. Then the madness descended. And after 12 minutes of chaos and violence, 80 people lay dead.

    Story

    J. D. Robb did not disappoint in this novel. There is a last minute twist towards the end that I hit round about 12 am and was not able to go to sleep! All in all good narrator, good story, and good ending - it feels like Eve is facing some of her issues in this book tying up loose ends. I enjoyed that she feels protective of Belle instead of being terrified of her which made me feel like she is a little closer to considering kids of her own. Which, I know she has said if the two of them reach that point it would mean the end of the series. I hope it doesn’t as I return to this series quite often.

    When we last left the mighty wizard detective Harry Dresden, he wasn't doing well. In fact, he had been murdered by an unknown assassin. But being dead doesn't stop him when his friends are in danger. Except now he has nobody, and no magic to help him. And there are also several dark spirits roaming the Chicago shadows who owe Harry some payback of their own. To save his friends - and his own soul - Harry will have to pull off the ultimate trick without any magic....

    Story

    I enjoyed the book and even got over the new narrator after awhile. Of course as many have already said we want Marsters back he does add the sarcasm to the characters that we have come to know and love so much.

    Through the first half of the book I was basically waiting to find out what exactly was going on with this ghost thing. The 2nd half I was basically waiting for a good close out that would leave a good direction for the next book. By the way really disappointed in how little his brother takes part in this book. The one part he was in felt more like an after thought than an actual inclusion as part of the story line. There are definite religious or at least good vs. bad overtones in this book that is more blatant than in the past. I mean we all know Dresden wins bc he's the good guy right? Overall not one of my favorites in the series but it was a good listen overall and I plan to go back and listen a 2nd time to see if maybe I missed something along the way. For those of you sitting on the fence because of all the bad reviews based only on the narrator (I was one) I would say listen to the clip that is free and if you can get over that I think you will be relatively happy you did so.
    Looking forward to book 14....

    Atlanta would be a nice place to live, if it weren't for the magic. When the magic is up, rogue mages cast their spells and monsters appear, while guns refuse to fire and cars fail to start. But then technology returns, and the magic recedes as unpredictably as it arose, leaving all kinds of paranormal problems in its wake.

    "Story line good but narrator bogs it down"
    Overall

    It's rare that I come accross a narrator that bogs a story down so much that I just can't get into the book. But this is one of them. I have tried listening to it at least 4 times and had to stop because my mind wandered away or I just flat out feel asleep! I've listend to the majority of the first half but that took several weeks and I kept having to back up and figure out where I lost the story line. I think if I could have sped up the pace it might have worked but since that is not an option on either my computer or my curent mp3 player it was a total drag! I've listened to atleast 5 other books before trying this one more time. At this point I'm not sure I'll ever finish this. As one other person pointed out the voice does not match the main character at all. Sorry the story may be good but I think I'd rather read it myself than listen to this narrator any more.

    Already cited on the floor of Congress and discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a book all Americans should read, One Second After is the story of a war scenario that could become all too terrifyingly real. Based upon a real weapon - the Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) - which may already be in the hands of our enemies, it is a truly realistic look at the awesome power of a weapon that can destroy the entire United States.

    Sara says: "A terrifying story"
    "Thought provoking"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this books concept however it did get bogged down in the details. It has so many characters that I often was lost thinking; wait a minute who was that again? It was very thought provoking and makes you wonder about this possible future. At least it made me think what if? Not necessarily go out and buy up a ton of can foods and bullets or anything but wow how would our world work if all our networks broke down? The book is good over all and is a nice long read for a long trip or something but it does get cumbersome in the middle and the end is just sad, no happy ending to tie everything up which I guess is realistic but it stinks! LOL Good read over all and I would recommend it.

She has dark flashbacks in the middle of practice, can't concentrate in class, and has terrifying dreams about Lissa. But Rose has an even bigger secret . . . .She's in love with Dimitri. And this time, it's way more than a crush.

    "Good, but is it really a teen read?"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed the series and listened to all 3 in less than a week. I was shocked in the 3rd book by the sex scene.
    I work with kids and teens and often read books like this to recommend (or not) as I see fit. Up to book two I would recommend this series but book 3 threw me for a loop and really shocked me with that one scene. Nothing like a little teacher/student one on one time to make me doubt the writers' sanity!
    I would compare it to the Twilight series for the "OMG I love him SOOOOOOO much! I'll die with out him!" theme but if you can get past that and the weird sex scene it is a good series.
    I more than likely will look into the next book when it comes out but won't be recommending it to my younger teens at all!

    Overall

    It starts out a little slow at first and is a bit clunkie because it has sooooo many characters but in the end I really enjoyed it. So much so that within a month of buying the first book I had bought the rest of the series and had already finished all of them! Yeah it's a good series. I find my self missing the characters now that I've finished the books.
