    More than 20 New York Times best-selling authors team up to create a first-rate serial novel -- a collaboration that combines the skills of America’s greatest storytellers to produce a gripping, spellbinding mystery.

    Carrie says: "Not as good as expected"
    "Plenty of rest for the listeners"
    Overall

    Caveat: I don't like improve TV shows, either. Starts off with a beautiful chapter about capital punishment, then moves into flashback mode. (You aspiring writers have, no doubt, done this exercise in your writing groups). Chapters written in such diverse styles don't hold together for a good listen. Might be a good read for aspiring thriller writers. Or, you might like "First Thrills," better. It's an anthology of thriller short stories written by hot-selling authors. It's also available at Audible.com. Please be sure to review it...only three POVs up so far.

    Call Me Irresistible is the book Susan Elizabeth Phillips's readers have long awaited. Ted, better known as "little Teddy," the nine-year-old heartbreak kid from Phillips's first best seller, Fancy Pants, and as "young Teddy," the hunky new college graduate in Lady Be Good, is all grown up now—along with Lucy from First Lady and Meg from What I Did for Love. They're ready to take center stage in a saucy, funny, and highly addictive tale fans will love.

    Amazon Customer says: "SEP is Back In The Game!! Loved It!"
    "Interesting characters, great narrator."
    Overall

    Meg, the main character is delightfully offbeat. Dialogue is witty, setting is unique, themes are contemporary, and erotic scenes are well-written. Shannon Cochran really brings the story to life with her characterizations of the nasty Texas women that Meg has to cope with after her BFF leaves the town's mayor at the altar. Length is just right for the plot. No dead spots...listeners won't need to fast forward.

    Since Darwin's day, we've been told that sexual monogamy comes naturally to our species. Mainstream science - as well as religious and cultural institutions - has maintained that men and women evolved in families in which a man's possessions and protection were exchanged for a woman's fertility and fidelity. But this narrative is collapsing....

    Carolyn says: "Strawmen and Ad Hominems"
    "Argumentation and anthropology at their best."
    Overall

    Very well-written argument for the authors' POV about the evolution of human sexuality. Authors claim we took a left turn with the advent of agriculture. Binobo or chimp--that it the question. It is well-researched and references several of my other favorite researchers, including Steven Pinker. It got a second "listen," and that is unusual for this audiophile.

  • Smokin' Seventeen: A Stephanie Plum Novel

    Where there’s smoke there’s fire, and no one knows this better than New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum. Dead bodies are showing up in shallow graves on the empty construction lot of Vincent Plum Bail Bonds. No one is sure who the killer is, or why the victims have been offed, but what is clear is that Stephanie’s name is on the killer’s list. Short on time to find evidence proving the killer’s identity, Stephanie faces further complications when her family and friends decide that it’s time for her to choose between her longtime off-again-on-again boyfriend and the other bad boy in her life....

    WIpiglet says: "Been there read that!"
    "Still fun...Lorelei King makes it all come alive."
    Overall

    Stephanie is a bit sexier in this book, but still does't own her own eroticism. She blames her new found sexual urges on getting the "evil" eye. Plenty of Ranger and just enough Lula. Nice plot twists...three people trying to kill Stephanie at the same time.

    Story

    Valerie Wyatt is the queen of gracious living and the arbiter of taste with a successful TV show. Since her long-ago divorce, she’s worked hard to reach the pinnacle of her profession and to create a camera-ready life in her Fifth Avenue penthouse. So why is she so depressed? All the hours with her personal trainer, the careful work of New York’s best hairdressers, cosmetic surgeons, and her own God-given bone structure and great looks can’t fudge the truth or her lies about it: Valerie is turning sixty.

    Jan says: "Enjoyed story narrator shocking"
    "Don't bother--unless you have trouble sleeping."
    Overall

    Redundant, preachy, hackneyed. After a character makes a two line statement, Ms. Steele seems to think she needs to write another two paragraphs to explain it to the reader. Danielle must have gotten paid by the word.
