    Linda Lael Miller captivates fans with rapturous contemporary romances starring the strapping men of the Creed family. Each entry in the sprawling saga finds a place on the New York Times best-seller list and in listeners’ hearts. Here, rodeo cowboy Brody Creed reluctantly returns to Lonesome Bend after a chance meeting with his estranged twin brother. Not much is keeping this free spirit in town, until he meets Carolyn Simmons—a woman with wanderlust of her own.

    What did you love best about The Creed Legacy?

    I enjoyed Linda Lael Miller's smooth easy , ease. in telling the everyday lives of two broken people.


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

    I enjoyed Jack's easy "cowboy' smoothness and charm. This is the first time I've heard him and really, I listened.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Sometimes small town gossip aint always bad or is it?

    Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in "The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas". As her family lay dying, little Libby fled their tiny farmhouse into the freezing January snow. She lost some fingers and toes, but she survived, and famously testified that her 15-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, Ben sits in prison, and troubled Libby lives off the dregs of a trust created by well-wishers who've long forgotten her.

    One of todays best Mystery/Thriller writer, Gillian Flynn, does not disappoint. Her characters are always real, complex. Her storyline straight forward and then without warning comes the plot twists and the drops just like a rollcoaster ride you were sure you knew because you've riden it before... no you haven't. Brillant!!!

    Gideon Cross: As beautiful and flawless on the outside as he was damaged and tormented on the inside. He was a bright, scorching flame that singed me with the darkest of pleasures. I couldn’t stay away. I didn’t want to. He was my addiction…my every desire…mine. My past was as violent as his, and I was just as broken. We’d never work. It was too hard, too painful…except when it was perfect. Those moments when the driving hunger and desperate love were the most exquisite insanity. We were bound by our need. And our passion would take us beyond our limits to the sweetest, sharpest edge of obsession.…

    I truly enjoy Audible Books, gives me chance to to do two things at once whether it be driving to and from or busy doing the everyday household chores audibles make them just go down so much easier. Sylvia never disappoints. And Jill's performance of the heroine really good, not so fond of the of male counterpoint but it's hard to do males without sounding goofy. all in all it didn't hurt the story. Soo Sylvia did they lose any of their new found trust issues or has our heroine subcommed to Mr. Dangerous' "grip" of reality or does she comperhend the danger at all...? Hmmm....
    could be quiet interesting to see her make a left without a turn signal huh? Just a thought.
    Truly,I enjoyed it . It left my mouth hanging open, even if, I saw it coming.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    Would you listen to Gone Girl again? Why?

    Would I read it again, yes. To remember what not to do or...to do.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I definitely was on the edge of my seat and then all of a sudden I found myself on the floor. Gillian, you nailed it - so throughly. I looked for mistakes and well, it's so... if I say to much...I thought I knew what was going on and then again I thought I knew what was happening and again I was wrong. And I can't stop smiling am I twisted or what.


    Have you listened to any of Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not at first. Kirby kind of threw me- not the voice I expected but as I continue listening he fit and very well I might add. He drew me in and made it real. I needed, no wanted to just sit still, stop doing and just listen straight thru and I did.
