    Sam Cooper (“Coop”) has just become the most eligible bachelor in New York City. Now that he has foiled a jewelry-store robbery and has been rewarded with the ring of his choice, single women all over the city are fawning over the crime reporter. But Coop isn’t interested in the admirers sending racy underwear his way. His attention is centered solely on Lexie Davis, the only woman in the city who claims not to be interested in his bachelor status.

    What didn’t you like about Sherri Slater’s performance?

    Didn't care for most of the men's voices the narrator used...and the older women all sounded the same.

    When Andie tries to gain closure with her ex-husband, he asks one final favor of her. A distant cousin has died and left North the guardian of two orphans. When Andie meets the two children, she realizes the situation is much worse than she feared. Carter and Alice aren’t your average delinquents, and the creepy old house where they live is being run by the worst housekeeper since Mrs. Danvers. Complicating matters is Andie’s fiancé’s suspicion that this is all a plan by North to get Andie back.

    Eureka "Trinket" Truevine, the newest Diva, gets more than she bargained for when she finds her best Diva girlfriend Bitty Hollandale's ex-husband in Bitty's hall closet. He's dead. Very dead. Now Trinket and the Divas have to help Bitty finger the murderer and clear her name.

    What would have made Dixie Divas better?

    more store and less descriptions I found we were up to chapter 9 and I knew very little about the mystery and TONS of little details about stuff that were not part of the story. It was like listening to a friend tell a story that would never end.

    Manuel Perrine doesn't fear anyone or anything. A charismatic and ruthless leader, Perrine slaughters rivals as effortlessly as he wears his trademark white linen suit. Detective Michael Bennett once managed to put Perrine behind bars, the only official in the US ever to accomplish that. But now Perrine is out, and he has sworn to find and kill Bennett and everyone dear to him.

    I missed hearing Bobby Cannavale as the voice of Michael Bennett. I guess I was spoiled hearing his voice. The story was a bit slower but the ending was good.

    Thriller scribe Sophie Katz is as hard-boiled as a woman who drinks Grande Caramel Brownie Frappuccionos can be. So Sophie knows it's not paranoia, or post-divorce, living-alone-again jitters, when she becomes convinced that a crazed reader is sneaking into her apartment to reenact scenes from her books. The police, however, can't tell a good plot from an unmarked grave.

    This was my first time to listen to Gabra Zackman perform and she was great! Very happy she is the narrator on the complete series. It's been fun listening to her. Just searched her and found she's done many more books so I'll check them out since she's so enjoyable t listen to.

    Dennie Banks is an investigative reporter chasing down the biggest story of her career. Alec Prentice is a government agent working undercover to catch an elusive grifter. When they meet by accident, it’s a case of mistaken identities at first sight. What they don’t mistake is the instant attraction they have for each other, an attraction they’ll do everything in their power to resist - because Dennie thinks that Alec is running interference for her interview subject, and Alec suspects that Dennie is linked to his swindler. As the confusion grows, so do their feelings for each other....

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would recommend...easy listening. good story.


    Any additional comments?

    The author states at the begining it was a story she had written earlier. And you can sort of tell by the lack of 'back story'. You think two characters just meet but then you start to wonder if they have known each other much longer. It was really clear. But I got over that and listed to a good story.

    Lacey Terwilliger's shock and humiliation over her husband's philandering prompt her to add some bonus material to Mike's company newsletter: stunning Technicolor descriptions of the special brand of "administrative support" his receptionist gives him. The detailed mass e-mail to Mike's family, friends, and clients blows up in her face, and before one can say "instant urban legend", Lacey has become the pariah of her small Kentucky town and a media punch line....

    If you could sum up And One Last Thing... in three words, what would they be?

    Light, Fun, Entertaining


    What was one of the most memorable moments of And One Last Thing...?

    When the main character is learning how to write....write sex into her stories as suggested by her neighbor, the Author. As she reads what she has written, as the listener I'm hearing what she's written, imaging and thinking about her words and then LAUGH OUT LOUD when she thows in the name of the neighbor into the story...opps....He's not suppose to be in that Love Scene. That was the funny!


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

    I've not heard Amanda in other books but I am impressed with the differnt "voices" she's been using in this book...the gals, the guys, the old men. Pretty great.

  • Kinsey and Me: Stories

    In 1982, Sue Grafton introduced us to Kinsey Millhone. Thirty years later, Kinsey is an established international icon and Sue, a number-one best-selling author. To mark this anniversary year, Sue has given us stories that reveal Kinsey’s origins and Sue’s past. Kinsey and Me has two parts: The nine Kinsey stories (1986-93), each a gem of detection; and the And Me stories, written in the decade after Grafton's mother died. Together, they show just how much of Kinsey is a distillation of her creator’s past.

    Jean says: "How did Grafton create Kinsey?"
    "Not what I had expected."

    What disappointed you about Kinsey and Me?

    The begining was great...lots of little stories...but too much real life past that and I was wasn't looking for that...I was looking for mystery with Kinsey


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I liked the little Kinsey stories at hte begining
