    One day, Callie Vanetta receives devastating news… She needs a liver transplant. But her doctors warn that, in her case, the chances of finding a compatible donor aren’t good. Determined to spend whatever time she has left on her own terms, she keeps the diagnosis to herself and moves out to her late grandparents’ farm. She’s always wanted to live there. But the farm hasn’t been worked in years and she begins to fear she can’t manage it, that she’ll have to return to town.

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    the way she overly accentuated some of the words - it was actuall aggrevating in some points.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from When Summer Comes?

    not a scene, but all the extreme self reflections.

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

    This book was so much like a famous writer that has written dozens like this that it made this book boring to say the least. It had similar names characters even the wedding of the detective. The only difference was that her husband was a senator.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    unknown


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Felicity Munroe?

    not sure


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Fatal Flaw?

    the entre book, I would say it is too much a copy cat!


    Any additional comments?

    Her other books, the series ones were good this one was a total/complete let down!

    Only minutes after Abbie Elliot and her three best friends step off of a private helicopter, they enter the most luxurious, sumptuous, sensually pampering hotel they have ever been to. Their lavish presidential suite overlooks Monte Carlo, and they surrender: to the sun and pool, to the sashimi and sake, to the Bruno Paillard champagne. In the morning's harsh light, Abbie awakens on a yacht, surrounded by police. Something awful has happened - something impossible, unthinkable. Abbie, Winnie, Serena, and Bryah are arrested and accused of the foulest crime imaginable.

    Betsy says: "Ditto - Don't waste your credit."
    "Boring at best!"

    Story
    What would have made Guilty Wives better?

    Not so much detail. It really got bogged down in detail and made the entire thing drag on and become very boring, almost painful to listen to.


    Would you ever listen to anything by James Patterson and David Ellis again?

    I have listened to James Patterson in the past and read his books. This is the second one that I think was absolutely horrible and not worth all the time and effort.


    How could the performance have been better?

    It wasn't the performance as much as it was the story. The french accent and words were done well.


    Any additional comments?

    Rewrite it by taking out some of the detail or making some of it more action orientated. Pattersons work in general is so action orientated and keeps you kind of in suspense. The only part that wasn't as bad was the very end with Abbie finding out slowly who did what.
