    Mercedes Hildebrand Ware is a member beyond reproach...until her life begins to unravel. When her husband betrays her, steals her money, and runs off to places unknown, it's something Frede would prefer to keep under wraps. The last thing she needs is to become fodder for the JLWC gossip mill. And to make matters worse, there's only one person in town who stands a chance at helping her get revenge - Howard Grout, a tasteless, gold-chain-wearing lawyer who has bought his way into Frede's tony neighborhood.

    Overall

    This is a little light "reading", but the narration is excellent. Jenna Lamia also narrated "The Secret Life of Bees", which led me to this book. She does such an excellent job with the southern accent, that it makes me slip back into my own-even though I have not lived in the South now for over 30 years. I also discovered, accidentally, that she is one of the narrators in "The Help", which I thoroughly enjoyed.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    "Hard to stop listening!"
    Overall

    This was my first book by Stieg Larsson, but after listening to this one, I purchased his next book, "The Girl Who Played with Fire" and can't wait to start it. The narration is excellent and made the book that much more exciting. There was much depth of character and a "page-turning" mystery, not easily guessed. I couldn't stand to put it down.

    Story

    The U.S. Speaker of the House is assassinated in a terrifyingly precise execution in the heart of Washington, D.C. In a quieter corner of the nation's capital, the rare book room of the Library of Congress, a reclusive, wealthy scholar drops dead under mysterious circumstances that leave no clues. Following on the heels of the natural death of the Speaker of the House, the city and the nation begin to tremble.

    "Get a new narrator"
    Overall

    I like the Baldacci books and have listed to 2 others on Audible, but the narrator on this one is not good at all. The inflections are off, and it is just distracting. It is hard to enjoy the story when the narration is so poor. I should have listened to the sample before choosing. If I had, I would have downloaded it to my Kindle instead.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Overall

    When I bought this book I had no idea how good it was going to be or I would not have waited to enjoy it. I had listened to other books before this one, until friend after friend told me I HAD to read it. I am from the South and remember the period encompassed by the story, although I was quite a bit younger than the main characters. It was quite an accurate portrayal of Southern women (white and black) and all four of the narrators were excellent. This is one of those rare books that is better in audio than if you read it in print format. You will not be sorry if you choose this book. Enjoy!
