    Detective Lindsay Boxer's long-awaited wedding celebration becomes a distant memory when she is called to investigate a horrendous crime: a badly injured teenage girl is left for dead, and her newborn baby is nowhere to be found. Lindsay discovers that not only is there no trace of the criminals - but that the victim may be keeping secrets as well.

    What did you like best about 10th Anniversary? What did you like least?

    Having listened to this entire series, this one was good but a little bit flat compared to other novels in the series. The story-line was a bit lacking but overall, it was easy to listen to, especially if you are already familiar with the "women's murder club".


    Would you be willing to try another book from James Patterson and Maxine Paetro ? Why or why not?

    Yes, probably since I like the series overall.

    Louisa Clark is an ordinary girl living an exceedingly ordinary life - steady boyfriend, close family - who has never been farther afield than her tiny village. She takes a badly needed job working for ex-Master of the Universe Will Traynor, who is wheelchair bound after an accident. Will has always lived a huge life - big deals, extreme sports, worldwide travel - and now he's pretty sure he cannot live the way he is. Will is acerbic, moody, bossy - but Lou refuses to treat him with kid gloves, and soon his happiness means more to her than she expected.

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A timeless story


    Any additional comments?

    I'm so glad I followed the advice of other listeners and "read the book already". I loved it. I cared for the every one of the characters and enjoyed having them in my mind as I listened/drove 12 hours.

    The Good House tells the story of Hildy Good, who lives in a small town on Boston's North Shore. Hildy is a successful real-estate broker, good neighbor, mother, and grandmother. She's also a raging alcoholic. Hildy's family held an intervention for her about a year before this story takes place - "if they invite you over for dinner, and it’s not a major holiday," she advises "run for your life" - and now she feels lonely and unjustly persecuted. She has also fooled herself into thinking that moderation is the key.

    Rhonda Morrison says: "What a great book, Hildy is a great character!"
    "Best listen in a long time!"

    Would you listen to The Good House again? Why?

    I loved this book. I am more likely to recommend than I am to re-listen but I found myself telling people about it so that they could enjoy it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The main character is so down the earth and likable. Just seemed so very. I felt like I "knew" her.


    What does Mary Beth Hurt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She is just so vibrant. So believable and just really came to life.


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

    It reminded me of a functioning alcoholic whom I know and provided me with insight as to what her life may be like when no one is around.

    Catherine has been enjoying the single life for long enough to know a good catch when she sees one. Gorgeous, charismatic, spontaneous – Lee seems almost too perfect to be true. And her friends clearly agree, as each in turn falls under his spell. But there is a darker side to Lee. His erratic, controlling and sometimes frightening behaviour means that Catherine is increasingly isolated. Driven into the darkest corner of her world, and trusting no one, she plans a meticulous escape.

    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, you felt the tensions rise and I like the "sliding-doors" (movie) sort of plot of before/after being told at the same time.


    Have you listened to any of David Thorpe and Karen Cass ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No but I love her accent!


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

    I did become attached to the main character. I felt like she could be a friend.

    Seth Hubbard is a wealthy man dying of lung cancer. He trusts no one. Before he hangs himself from a sycamore tree, Hubbard leaves a new, handwritten, will. It is an act that drags his adult children, his black maid, and Jake into a conflict as riveting and dramatic as the murder trial that made Brigance one of Ford County's most notorious citizens, just three years earlier. The second will raises far more questions than it answers. Why would Hubbard leave nearly all of his fortune to his maid? Had chemotherapy and painkillers affected his ability to think clearly?

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was a good listen and I'm glad I finished it, and I liked the use of the characters and the 80's setting. I've read better from Grisham so I was a bit disappointed, especially after all the positive reviews.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It made sense. I like how it turned out, actually it provided closure.

    The incomparable master of the legal thriller takes us deeper into the labyrinth that is the American justice system, always drawing us in with an irresistible hook, pulling the thread of tension tighter and tighter, and then knocking us out with a conclusion that's never "by the book". Maybe that's why, after more than 20 years of consecutive number-one New York Times best sellers, a new novel by America's favorite storyteller is still a major publishing event.

    What disappointed you about The Litigators?

    Unlike the last Grisham novel I read, which drew me in and kept my interest from start to finish with suspense and enough action to keep me interested, this started out like it would be a cool story but then it just dragged with not enough suspense or excitement. It seemed to give a play-by-play when a summation would have worked in certain areas.


    Would you ever listen to anything by John Grisham again?

    Yes


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Dennis Boutsikaris?

    Sure


    What character would you cut from The Litigators?

    None


    Any additional comments?

    I was glad when it was over.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was better than listening to nothing but I wasn't as eager to listen as I normally am with a good book.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I hate to say it but it wasn't interesting enough. I chose the book because I loved the author's previous book.


    Was A Year and Six Seconds worth the listening time?

    I guess if you are in the mood for a descriptive story of a women's finding love after divorce.


    Any additional comments?

    I LOVED "Happens Every Day" by Isabelle Gillies. Listen to that instead.
