    Chick Bowdrie could have been an outlaw, but he rode a different trail. The Texas Rangers recruited Bowdrie to help pursue the most wanted men in the Southwest. And Bowdrie knew the terrain all too well: the dusty trails, bitter cattle feuds, the desperate killers, and the weather-beaten towns that could explode into chaos at the wrong word. The Rangers were called in to handle the tough cases, and Bowdrie was the toughest and smartest.

    Bowdrie and Louis L'Amour are classics from an era long gone. I LOVE listening to the stories and going back in time to when men were cowboys and gentlemen. LOTS of fun!

    "You'd think a midnight prowler would have sense enough to get out after being discovered by a group of middle-aged women armed with flower vases. Or at least stop what he was doing. Not this one. Despite our menacing appearance, he kept opening cabinet doors and drawers. Our intruder wore what looked like a black Ninja outfit. It did not flatter. He was a bit chunky and not much taller than me. Nor did he move very fast as Gaynelle and I bore down on him like a freight train."

    The bestselling Dixie Divas mystery series continues! Trinket and her pals are, once again, caught in the middle of a murder scene... "Professor Sturgis is dead. What I'd thought was an untidy pile of clothing tumbling out of the closet turned out to be a professor with whom Bitty had just quarreled that very morning."

    Volume two in this series consists of one novel, The Hound of the Baskervilles, and two collections of short stories, which include "Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes" and "The Return of Sherlock Holmes" (a total of 23 stories). These creations by Doyle represent the finest work of his Holmes series, and certainly the most famous.

    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.

    This was a wonderful story that shed alot of light on the system of help in the united states and what it was like from different points of view. I've learned in classes about how the governer said those awful things and didnt understand how anyone could support him but now it makes more sense. All in all terrific read!

    A young woman with a foothold in two cultures, Rei Shimura has gone wherever fortune and her unruly passions have led her throughout her chaotic 20s.

    The Typhoon Lover is a thrilling adventure full of Japanese custom and heritage along with sexy adventurous fun. While the main character Rei is both alluring and morally aprehensable at times it is an interesting read with ups and downs twists and turns. Definately worth both time and money.

    The Lorax is a classic book that my son loves to read over and over. All our children should be as environmentally concious. It always suprises me that there are people who have never read The Lorax and it is wonderful that it is available on audible.

    Here are the confessions of a vampire. Hypnotic, shocking, and chillingly erotic, this is a novel of mesmerizing beauty and astonishing force - a story of danger and flight, of love and loss, of suspense and resolution, and of the extraordinary power of the senses. It is a novel only Anne Rice could write. From the Paperback edition.
