    Sadie Nettleton fled Slaughter Creek ten years ago, leaving behind the only home she’d ever known - and the only man she ever loved. Unable to cope with her sister's madness, or the terrible secret she and her sister share, Sadie swore never to return. But when her grandfather is murdered, and her sister charged with the crime, Sadie has no choice but to come back and face the ghosts of the past... For Sheriff Jake Blackwood, time has not dimmed the love he felt for Sadie Nettleton - or the pain of her leaving.

    What disappointed you about Dying to Tell?

    Soooo much angst. The same thing repeated over and over. If you insist on reading this, just read the 1st two chapters and the last 3 and you'll get to keep the hours you would have spent on the whole book. How many times do we have to have the female characters kidnapped or drugged or attacked or helpless. Don't waste your time. I feel for the narrator.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Almost anything else.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The narration was fine.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Frustration.

    After a stalker breaks into her home, internet entrepreneur Bee Langston decides Kelly Connolly is the only man who can help her - but seeking help from the former Marine isn't easy, especially after she made a spectacular fool of herself trying to kiss the sinfully sexy bodyguard. When Kelly spots Bee weaving her way through the Houston nightspot where he's working security, all those feelings he's desperately tried to deny for his best friend's sister come flooding to the surface.

    What would have made In Kelly's Corner better?

    A different ending. The story was a little over the top in places but was pretty good until it veered into the land of the ridiculous. The whole story was built around the fight and the stalker. In the end, the fight was really much ado about nothing and the h became a self righteous rich b**ch whose job became to fix everything herself. She lied and sneaked around but was outraged when people didn't believe her. The 'brother' revelations added nothing to the story except to give it a bit of drama at the expense of a dead guy. There was no H in this book. He was totally emasculated by the author.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Clementine Cage?

    Someone who can pull off a Russian accent and who doesn't sound like she's 14.

    Shunned and ridiculed all her life for something she can't control, Samantha Blair hides her psychic abilities and lives on the fringes of society. Against her will, however, she's tapped into a killer - or rather, his victims. Each woman's murder, blow-by-blow, ravages her mind until their death releases her back to her body. Sam knows she must go to the authorities, but will the rugged, no-nonsense detective in charge of tracking down the killer believe her?

    Any additional comments?

    So I'm over halfway through the book and the only thing I know for sure is that I'll get a continuous running commentary of Sam's bumps, bruises, cuts, headaches, and every bite of food she eats. I'm told she is strong and independent but I'm shown that she is needy and can't seem to learn how to manage her abilities. I decided to skip to the last three chapters and did not find any surprises or changes. Narration was terrible.

    Abby Thompson didn't ask to be the First Daughter. And when she's taken hostage, she fears her father's policy of "not negotiating with terrorists" means she'll never see the shores of the Potomac again. Though there is one man who can save her.... Carlos "Steady" Soto has taken part in his fair share of dangerous missions, but nothing prepared him for the roller coaster he faces when he's tasked with rescuing the only woman he ever loved - who also broke his heart.

    Was really looking forward to this book but unfortunately I was really disappointed. It seemed to be directed more toward the YA crowd; too many quips and not much action. The big "secret" was lame and the reveal was worse.

    Would you try another book from Kresley Cole and/or Robert Petkoff?

    No to Cole. Narrator was fine.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Kresley Cole again?

    Don't think so.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Wicked Deeds on a Winter's Night?

    Too many to name.


    Any additional comments?

    Hours and hours of sniping, bitching, whining. While there was a plot buried in here, entirely too much time was spent with this juvenile dialog. Author seems to want us to believe this heroine is brave and resourceful and that the hero is proud of her. What came across to me was hours of spite, selfishness, willfulness. So may the juvenile dialog actually fits. Waste of time.

    Any additional comments?

    The 'heroine' of the story was the least Christian. It's a constant struggle to fine writers who don't feed they must make women either weak or unreasonable, or either subserviant or selfish. I wonder if the author is 15 or is writing for a target group of 15 year olds.
