    Why we think it’s a great listen: Some books are meant to be read; others are meant to be heard – Water for Elephants falls into the second group, and is one of the best examples we have of how a powerful performance enhances a great story. Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days with a circus. It's the Depression Era and Jacob, finding himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.

    Overall

    This book is one of the best books I've listened to in a long time. There was not a moment where I was bored. It also had me hooked from the moment I started listening. I honestly can't say enough good about it. The narrator really made the story even more real.

    This book had me laughing out loud. Definitely worth the read/listen. I read the first 2 Bridget Jones books, but don't remember them being this funny.

    Valerie Wyatt is the queen of gracious living and the arbiter of taste with a successful TV show. Since her long-ago divorce, she’s worked hard to reach the pinnacle of her profession and to create a camera-ready life in her Fifth Avenue penthouse. So why is she so depressed? All the hours with her personal trainer, the careful work of New York’s best hairdressers, cosmetic surgeons, and her own God-given bone structure and great looks can’t fudge the truth or her lies about it: Valerie is turning sixty.

    I'm usually a big fan of Danielle Steele, but I feel she's out of touch with reality. These characters are TOO perfect, nobody's that perfect. Right now I'm just hoping it will end.

    Thirty-four years ago, Violet Sullivan put on her party finery and left for the annual Fourth of July fireworks display. She was never seen again. In the small California town of Serena Station, tongues wagged. Some said she'd run off with a lover. Some said she was murdered by her husband.

    Jeanne says: "A Good Read"
    "Fell Short"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book up until the ending. What was the killers motive? Throughout the entire book we were taken back in time and given a look inside what happen with each character. But the author failed to complete the story by taking us back to exactly what happen in detail to Violet the night she was murdered. All I have to say is there are a lot of unanswered questions and a good story doesn't leave you hanging. Sorry, to the author because I always enjoy her books and this one look very promising, but I still want to know what was the motive.
