    I just started to listen to books while driving home from work. "La" was a great escape to another time and place at the end of a busy day. McCall Smith captures the small things that make up a woman's life with great insight. He never fails to please. Emily Gray narrates with style!

    Life is not easy for the poor relations of England’s upper crust, but fate and clever schemes bring them together. Lady Fortescue and Colonel Sandhurst hatch a plan: What if they were to transform her decrepit Bond Street home into a posh hotel, offering their guests the pleasure of being waited upon by nobility? With the help of other down-and-out aristocrats, they do just that, and London’s newest hotel, The Poor Relation, is born. The establishment is an immediate hit with London’s most illustrious citizens, save the Duke of Rowcester....

    Story

    Well, I just finished the final book in the Poor Relation series and I shall miss the residents of that unfashionably fashionable hotel. Though not great literature on the scale of a book like The Help, the tales are an entertaining (and often educational) romp through regency London.

    A brilliant stylist known for an uncompromising honesty that challenges conventional wisdom at every turn, Krauthammer has for decades dazzled readers with his keen insight into politics and government. His weekly column is a must-read in Washington and across the country. Now, finally, the best of Krauthammer's intelligence, erudition, and wit are collected in one volume.

    Story

    Dr. Krauthammer is one of the great conservative minds of our time. It love to hear what he has to say. I've listened to most of this book and truly enjoy when the author reads his own work. There are nuances, pathos and humor that come through when he reads, as opposed to large portions of the work that are read by another narrator.

    Still, an excellent work and well worth listening to — or perhaps this is one you should read.

    Not to be missed, but one must listen to all the previous Gamache novels. Louise Penny writes with intelligence and a deep understanding of the human heart. Ralph Cosham is Inspector Gamache.

  • Killing Lincoln: The Shocking Assassination That Changed America Forever

    The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased....

    Daniel says: "History Made Interesting"
    "Fascinating history of a turbulent time in America"

    Story

    A history we should all know puts the final days of the Civil War and Lincoln's death in a new perspective. Much as I love O'Reilly, his choppy delivery can sometimes be distracting, but take this more as a riveting history lecture than a thriller and get into the story.

    A story of youth and promise, of loss and the search for love, of secrets and destiny, Blackwood Farm brings together the Vampire Chronicles and the story of the Mayfair Witches, and is Anne Rice at her mesmerizing best.

    Story

    Interesting enough to get you started but there's little action. Having read all the earlier Mayfair witch books and the Vampire Chronicles, I thought this would be a good blend of the two. Rice gets into so much needless detail as the main character tells his story that one thinks it will never end. Needs more Lestat.

    Chief Inspector Armand Gamache has come to Winter Carnival - not to join the revels but to recover from an investigation gone hauntingly wrong. But violent death is inescapable, even in the apparent sanctuary of the Literary and Historical Society - where an obsessive historian’s quest for the remains of the founder of Quebec, Samuel de Champlain, ends in murder. Could a secret buried with Champlain for nearly 400 years be so dreadful that someone would kill to protect it?

    The intelligence of the entire Inspector Gamache series of Three Pines Mysteries is remarkable. I've fallen in love with this "Brigadoon" of a village and it's quirky inhabitants. What will happen between Clara and Peter? Learning more about the personal lives of the main characters with each revealing book. Only two books left in the series — I hope more are on the way!

    He's one of America's most recognizable and acclaimed actors: a star on Broadway, an Oscar nominee for The Aviator, and the only person to ever win Emmys for acting, writing, and directing, during his 11 years on M*A*S*H. Now Alan Alda has written a memoir as elegant, funny, and affecting as his greatest performances.
