    Freshly laid-off Wisconsinites Patrick and Barbara McDougall are going to sunny Florida for a modest romantic vacation. But the motel they picked isn't quite a pastel paradise, and they have to be midwesterners and make the best of a bad situation. Except bad goes to worse, and a string of misfortunes renders them unable to leave the state. Meanwhile, the next Mexican-American War is being fought, this time in Fort Lauderdale, between the Kentucky mafia and the Oxy cartel over control of the lucrative pain clinic market.

    Where does The Riptide Ultra-Glide rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It was not what I thought. However, I just picked it out without reading much about the actual storyline. I did like it. I thought it was different, and not the same predictalble storyline. I would reccomend it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Riptide Ultra-Glide?

    I couldn't pick one. Just the way the 2 main characters intereacted with each other.

    A bold new Jack The Ripper Story. A love story with time travel that will knock your socks off. Duke Kidwell and Trea set the stage in this time traveling story of intrigue. Jack The Ripper as you never thought of before. Just the beginning; more books to follow.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I'm not sure, possibly people who read sci/fi.


    Has Jack The Ripper - Old Into New: Short Story turned you off from other books in this genre?

    The narrator was very hard to understand with the accent. The book jumped from past to future, which was difficult to understand.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Shandon Shandon Loring’s performances?

    no


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

    I cannot think of any.

    Many self-help books offer a lot of new age platitudes and sappy mantras: Just love yourself. See the glass as half full. Really? That’s not how it works, and you know it. A lifetime’s worth of struggle is not overturned in a small moment of positive thinking. But if you have the right attitude - attitude and skills - you can and will accomplish anything and everything you want. This book gives you both, attitude and action. By its end you will have all the tools you need to change your life. No hype. No false promises....

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I think maybe I had higher expectations. It seemed boring, therefore it didn't keep my interest.


    What could Jillian Michaels have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I'm not quite sure.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I think she was too commanding.
