    Pike commits himself to protecting the girl, but when they immediately come under fire, he realizes someone is selling them out.

    As the body count rises, Pike's biggest threat might come from the girl herself, a lost soul in the City of Angels, determined to destroy herself - unless Joe Pike can teach her the value of life...and love.

    Andrew says: "A Quick Read! Both Drama and Action!"
    "A great addition to an already great series"
    Overall

    Read the Elvis Cole series before you rad this book. I enjoy the Elvis Cole mystery series and never really gave much thought to his silent partner.

    Watchmen has changed that completely. We are now presented with the human side of Joe. Elvis Cole plays a supporting role in this novel giving the novel a little brevity.

    Trenton, New Jersey, bounty hunter Stephanie Plum has inherited a “lucky” bottle from her Uncle Pip. Problem is, Uncle Pip didn’t specify if the bottle brought good luck or bad luck..

    Mo says: "16... is a fizzle not a sizzle!"

    Overall

    No surprises in this book... Stephanie is surrounded by wacky characters carrying guns, some of the gun toters are friends and some are bad guys.

    All of the Stephanie Plum novels are intricately woven in details but still are entertaining and an easy listen.

    I highly recommend the Stephani Plum Series I am a true fan of this comedic mystery series and fully intend on attending a book signing next year!!

    No matter how sophisticated or wealthy or broke or enlightened you are, how you eat tells all. Geneen Roth's masterwork, Women, Food and God explores the relationship between how we eat and how we see ourselves in the world.

    Anastasia Burke says: "Couldn't put it down!!!"
    "It is not the food, it is how you eat the food"
    Overall

    As a long-time dieter with varying degrees of success, I liked this book.

    One of the tips regarding hunger is to really look at why you are eating. If it is not for hunger then you should follow the source of what is causing you to eat. I truly felt fearful as i looked inward.

    This travel to the source is helpful for anyone. I was never beaten or abused or suffered devastating losses but yet I can see the voids I created in my life.

    Even if you think your relationship with food is completely normal it will open your eyes to other areas in your life.

    Valentino's travels, truly Biblical in scope, bring him in contact with government soldiers, janjaweed-like militias, liberation rebels, hyenas and lions, disease and starvation, and a string of unexpected romances. Ultimately, Valentino finds safety in Kenya and, just after the millennium, is finally resettled in the United States, from where this novel is narrated.

    Susan says: "A Story Aching to be Told"
    "Moving Novel"
    Overall

    A candid raw story of human survival. The plights of the children in this story are unbelievable to someone born in America.

    It is a sad and terrifying journey for the boys of Sudan but by the end of the book there is a sense of hope and amazement for all that they overcome. I was so moved I went to the author's site and donated money to his organization.

    One of this country's leading political satirists dangles before us a tantalizing novel whose protagonist has a great deal in common with a recent First Lady. Beth MacIntyre, First Lady of the United States, has been charged with the murder of her husband, a Presidential Lothario of the first water. She is accused of throwing a historic Paul Revere spittoon during a bedroom spat, putting an unfortunately fatal dent in the President's lust-filled head.

    M. S. Cohen says: "Buckley has no endgame"
    "Must be a guy thing"
    Overall

    I bought this book based on the reviews saying how funny the text. I found the book intriguing, humorous and very very well written.

    Although I liked the plot of a philandering dead president at the hands of a first lady who often threw objects at her husband. Not at one point did I laugh out loud hysterically.

    Now my boyfriend entered the room and listened to a few minutes and he couldn't stop laughing. I couldn't hear the book he was laughing so loud and frequently. Very annoying.

    The humor reminds me of Carry On Jeeves and The hitchhiker's Guide series. Mush more modern and entertaining.

    I gave it 5 stars because it is so well written and I will probably read another from the author.

    Ever had one of those days? A surprise visit from her father - who's on the run from the law - has given Carlotta Wren a lot to think about. Should she join her former fiancé, Peter, in proving her father is innocent? If she does, are her body-moving days over?

    Brenda says: "Not as good as Body Movers 1, 2, or 3"
    "A good series but I am suffering burn out"
    Overall

    This series is one in which you must start from teh begining with Body Movers. The entire series builds upon the characters and is really one long plot line.

    This one long plot line is also why I am getting burned out. The author insists on cliff hangers for the final line in the series. For the first three books that was great but now I feel like there will never be a "conclusion".

    There are so many sub plots in this book that no single plot is really propeled forward. I will read the next in the series but not for awhile.

    Body Movers 1,2,3 are really good sexy romantic mysteries that are intriguing to read.

    Andy Carpenter gains possession of an adorable Bernese puppy whose owner was brutally murdered. Few can rival Andy's affection for dogs, and he will do whatever it takes to insure that this little pup doesn't fall into the wrong hands. However, his playful new friend is valued by several people, many of whom are willing to resort to violence to get what they want.It will take more than Andy's usual courtroom theatrics to save this dog, including a little help from his beloved Golden Retriever, Tara.

    John says: "New Tricks"
    "A Friendly lawyer"
    Overall

    I like this series, I have only read three but i gave it 5 stars because I will definitely read the next in the series.

    Andy and his dog tara are gentle and kind with a dry sense of humor that makes me chuckle. The mystery plot is well written and all of the clues are there if you can catch them. I can never figure out the murderer but once revealed it is an obvious choice.

    The other reviews are right, there could not be a more perfect narrator.

    Carlotta Wren's life hasn't turned out as she planned. She didn't plan for her parents to skip bail for a white-collar crime, leaving her to raise her brother. She didn't plan on her blue-blood fiance dumping her. And she didn't plan on still being single 10 years later, working at Neiman Marcus, with no idea where her fugitive parents are. Until her lovable brother is arrested, and the hunky cop decides to reopen her parents' case.

    Corie says: "Makes me want to change my job."
    "A really good series"
    Overall

    This book is the first in the series. As with any series the characters aren't fully developed but they are interesting and the plot is good.

    A little romance between 3 possible suitors, a little mystery that seems to involve murder, and family drama as her parents are on the run and she tries to care for her 19 year old brother who lacks personal judgement and self-control.

    I quickly bought the second in the series and am really glad that I did.

    Recipe for disaster: Celebrity chef Stanley Chipotle comes to Trenton to participate in a barbecue cook-off and loses his head - literally. Throw in some spice: Bail bonds office worker Lula is witness to the crime, and the only one she'll talk to is Trenton cop, Joe Morelli. Pump up the heat: Chipotle's sponsor is offering a million-dollar reward to anyone who can provide information leading to the capture of the killers.

    Connie says: "A little Disappointed"

    I totally enjoy the series and have read the Stephanie Plum series a couple of times. Finger Lickin Fifteen is both funny and tantalizing. After reading the book I didn't feel satisfied-- I wanted more. It is a frustrating feeling but shows how the series is well written.

    Steady weight loss and improved self-image are not impossible. Anyone can do it. If you're fed up with miracle herbs and fad diets that always fail, try these proven techniques from real people who swear by them.

    Antoinette Brush says: "Mediocre"
    "Light hearted and enjoyable"
    Overall

    You will listen to hundreds of diet tips submitted by real life dieters. Some of the tips are quite useful others are just quite funny. The narrator did an amazing job of keeping the list flowing.
