I enjoy story being read to me. It relaxes the soul and mind at the end of the day, especially when you have a great reader/narrator.

    It's Christmas Eve and Detective Alex Cross has been called out to catch someone who's robbing his church's poor box. That mission behind him, Alex returns home to celebrate with Bree, Nana, and his children. The tree decorating is barely underway before his phone rings again - a horrific hostage situation is quickly spiraling out of control. Away from his own family on the most precious of days, Alex calls upon every ounce of his training, creativity, and daring to save another family.

    Nestled on the Oregon coast is a small town of rocky beaches and rugged charm. Locals love the land’s unspoiled beauty. Developers see it as a potential gold mine. When newcomer Hank Cooper learns he’s been left an old friend’s entire beachfront property, he finds himself with a community’s destiny in his hands. Cooper has never been a man to settle in one place, and Thunder Point was supposed to be just another quick stop. But Cooper finds himself getting involved with the town. And with Sarah Dupre, a woman as complicated as she is beautiful.

    Story
    Would you listen to Fifty Shades Freed again? Why?

    Yes, it brings closure to one brilliantly written story.


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

    The story line was very consistent...However, the ending of this story was not the best, and not all stories are happily ever after considering everything this couple went through.


    What about Becca Battoe’s performance did you like?

    Wonderfully narrated....I actually felt Ana's passion


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

    My Fifty
