    Lizette Henry wakes up one morning and makes a terrifying discovery: She doesn't recognize the face she sees in the mirror. She remembers what she looks like, but her reflection is someone else's. To add to the shock, two years seem to have disappeared from her life. Someone has gone to great and inexplicable lengths to keep those missing years hidden forever. But the past always finds a way to return.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It started out well but lost something as I got further into the book. Maybe a little too much intrigue for my taste in books. Usually like all of this author's books but disappointed in this one. Took too long for main characters to actually interact.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Linda Howard again?

    Yes but hopefully not like this book


    What about Carrington MacDuffie’s performance did you like?

    I think the narrator did a GREAT job


    Did Shadow Woman inspire you to do anything?

    Stay away from "spy-type thrillers"!!


    Any additional comments?

    I prefer romantic, funny, happy books. Life today & the nightly news are serious enough!

    The beautiful young widow of the president of the United States thought she was free of the White House, but circumstances have forced her back into the role of First Lady. She's made up her mind to escape, if only for a few days, so she can live the life of an ordinary person. An entire nation is searching for her, but the First Lady is in the last place anyone would think to look: in the company of a seductive stranger whose charm and good looks are awakening the forgotten woman within.

    Would you consider the audio edition of First Lady to be better than the print version?

    Absolutely!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of First Lady?

    Deciding to adopt Lucy & Button


    What about Anna Fields’s performance did you like?

    She is absolutely perfect. One of the best performers for Susan Elizabeth Phillips books.


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

    When the First Lady decided to adopt the 2 orphaned children


    Any additional comments?

    I don't generally review books but I decided to make this an exception as I don't think I have ever enjoyed a story this much (and I have read & listened to very many). The characters were so real & likable. When Neelie told Lucy that she would adopt her & her baby sister it left me in tears. Next on my schedule is "The Great Escape"! Can't wait to read about Lucy's antics. She is so likable!!! Susan Elizabeth Phillips books never disappoint & leave me happy.

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone might enjoy this book if they are just looking for some porn but no real content.


    Has Fifty Shades of Grey turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I'm really not sure because I haven't really read or listened too much erotica. If it is like this, I definitely would not be interested.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Sounded childish & boring


    What character would you cut from Fifty Shades of Grey?

    Both the main characters!!


    Any additional comments?

    Even though I am a grandmother in her sixties, I have read my share of some "pretty hot" romance novels but this book put me to sleep. There is no plot or storyline. I made the mistake of buying into all the "hype" & was thoroughly bored & disappointed. Though I would like to know what caused the main male character to be so perverted, I think I will pass on the remainder of the series!!
