    What made the experience of listening to Bloodstream the most enjoyable?

    I love Tess's books and get so involved that my iPod is on at every possible moment


    Who was your favorite character and why?



    Cannot remember, so all must have been good!!!


    What does Richard Poe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His reading this book gave so much more emphasis on parts which I would not have actually realised I was not paying all that attention to.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish more "single" stories were written by Tess and not all the series - I really don't enjoy them as I do not want to waste my credits on 2 of the same books. Difficult to really put what I mean into words.

    Finders Keepers is Jessie's story - the story of a child stolen from a loving home...of a woman lost in a life that is not her own...of a family shattered by an unspeakable crime. Jessie must rip the veil of every illusion before she can reclaim her life, and journey through a maze of heartbreak before she can find her way back to the place she can truly call home.

    What made the experience of listening to Finders Keepers the most enjoyable?

    The reader made the book very listenerable (if there is such a word)!!


    What other book might you compare Finders Keepers to and why?

    Quite a few of Fern Michaels - I just love it when she brings dogs into her stories - makes them so human and loving.


    Have you listened to any of Susan Ericksen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Gosh, I am sure I have, but cannot recall any particular one - she was very good with this book.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reaction, but certainly a few times when I held my breath and could not wait to find out the outcome!!


    Any additional comments?

    I just love Ferm Michaels way of writing - I live it.

  • Don't Leave Me This Way: Or When I Get Back on My Feet You'll Be Sorry

    Julia Fox Garrison refused to listen to the professionals she called Dr. Jerk and Dr. Panic, who - after she suffered a massive, debilitating stroke at age thirty-seven - told her she’d probably die, or to Nurse Doom, who ignored her emergency call button. Instead she heeded the advice of kind, gifted Dr. Neuro, who promised her he would “treat your mind as well as your body.” Julia figured if she could somehow manage to get herself into a wheelchair, at least she’d always find parking. But after many, many months of hospitalization and rehab, Julia not only got into a wheelchair, but she got back out.

    A beautiful woman appears to be just another corpse in the morgue. But when medical examiner Maura Isles looks down at the body, she gets the fright of her life. The corpse opens its eyes. Now very much alive, the woman is rushed to hospital where she murders a security guard and seizes hostages, one of whom is heavily pregnant homicide detective Jane Rizzoli. But who is this woman? What does she want? Only Jane can solve the mystery, if she can survive the night.

    The reader was very pleasant to listen to

    The story was awesome - one of the better ones of Tess's

    cannot remember

    It just kept me interested all the way through

    I hope there are more "non-series" books written by Tess - she is a brilliant thriller writer.
