    It's been a long, rainy summer for Goldy Schulz, who is engaged in planning wedding receptions for what seems to be all of Aspen Meadow. It's bad enough that Billie Attenborough, the bride from hell, wants to move the location to the Gold Gulch Spa just a scant two days before tying the knot to her doctor fiance. Then Doc Finn, best friend of Goldy's godfather Jack, is killed when his car tumbles into a ravine. But Jack thinks Doc was murdered because of research he was doing at the spa....

    K.D. Keenan says: "Goldie is fun, and fun is all you get"
    "fabulously entertaining!"
    Overall

    The combo of Goldy Bear and Barbara Rosenblat is unbeatable for non-stop entertainment and light intrigue. This is the type book that makes me smile and forget the stress of the workday. The food references and recipes at the end are a great touch. I highly recommend this series if you read for pure entertainment and enjoy women sleuths as much as I do!

    An ordinary snapshot causes a mother’s world to unravel in an instant. After picking up her two young children from school, Grace Lawson looks through a newly developed set of photographs. She finds an odd one in the pack: A mysterious picture from perhaps twenty years ago, showing four strangers she can’t identify. But there is one face she recognizes—that of her husband, from before she knew him. When her husband sees the photo that night, he leaves their home and drives off without explanation.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Without a doubt I would change the female narrator.She absolutely ruined the book. It grated on my nerves so badly that I had to listen in short bursts.


    Would you recommend Just One Look to your friends? Why or why not?

    I love Harlan Coben's standalone books - he is one of the greatest out there in my opinion, but I would not recommend this audio book to anyone. The female narration absolutely ruined the audiobook. I would have to recommend that one read the book on this occasion and that is rare for me. I'm a diehard audiobook lover - just have never experienced a read this bad.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Angela Dawe and Luke Daniels ?

    Anyone at all instead of Angela Dawe and I really didn't care for Luke Daniels either. My favorite is Dick Hill and there are lots of wonderful female narrators out there.


    Was Just One Look worth the listening time?

    Not with the female narration. Read the book.


    Any additional comments?

    Great story from Coben - please improve the narration on subsequent books.

    Two dead bodies changed the course of my life that fall. One of them I knew and the other I'd never laid eyes on until I saw him in the morgue. The first was a local PI of suspect reputation. He'd been gunned down near the beach at Santa Teresa. It looked like a robbery gone bad. The other was on the beach six weeks later. He'd been sleeping rough. Probably homeless. No identification. A slip of paper with Millhone's name and number was in his pants pocket. The coroner asked her to come to the morgue to see if she could ID him.

    What would have made W Is for Wasted better?

    I used to love these ABC books and Kinsey was a real pleasure to read. Author needs to get off her bandwagon and just get back to writing enjoyable books. This was a real bore as have been the last several. As soon as she started writing about causes, the stories became slow and boring. I'm not sure anything could have made this book worth the waste of time - it's only saving grace was Judy Kay's narration. She is wonderful!


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Sycamore Row by John Grisham.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The end.


    What character would you cut from W Is for Wasted?

    This storyline was too boring to get into the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    Please make Kinsey interesting again with the x,y,z books.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Highly entertaining and keeps you guessing about what happened to the first wife.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tess


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

    Good - some of the voices were not as good as others - the southern accent was not done well at all and the heroine was too sappy.


    If you could take any character from Moonrise out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    The husband, He sounded like a dream in the quiet, sultry way that drives women crazy.


    Any additional comments?

    Some parts of it were too sappy and some of the scenes were not very believable or well constructed, but overall the book was a very enjoyable read. Not anywhere near the quality of Rebecca, but entertaining from a more modern perspective.
