    A walk down the aisle, a resort hotel, a drink on the beach...for these unlucky couples, the honeymoon's over. A newlywed couple steps into the sauna in their deluxe honeymoon suite - and never steps out again. When another couple is killed while boarding their honeymoon flight to Rome, it becomes clear that someone is targeting honeymooners, and it's anyone's guess which happy couple is next on the list. FBI Agent John O'Hara is deep into solving the case, while Special Agent Sarah Brubaker is hunting another ingenious serial killer, whose victims all have one chilling thing in common....

    If you could sum up Second Honeymoon in three words, what would they be?

    Entertaining, exciting and suspenseful


    What other book might you compare Second Honeymoon to and why?

    Oh gosh... it's more of a murder mystery with FBI agents. It's kind of like a CSI tv show.


    Have you listened to any of Jay Snyder and Ellen Archer ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    They are great. I really enjoyed their voices.


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

    Yes, it keeps you hanging. Unfortunately I listened to it on my way work so I listened to it broken up.


    Any additional comments?

    Good book, kind of confusing when they switch back and forth to different people. It take a while before you realize they are all tied together. But it's interesting and the two main characters are relate-able. It's a good book... but not the best ever!

    Jodi Picoult's poignant number one New York Times best-selling novels about family and love tackle hot-button issues head on. In The Storyteller, Sage Singer befriends Josef Weber, a beloved Little League coach and retired teacher. But then Josef asks Sage for a favor she never could have imagined - to kill him. After Josef reveals the heinous act he committed, Sage feels he may deserve that fate. But would his death be murder or justice?

    Where does The Storyteller rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's by far the best book I have listened to ever! It melted my heart, I enjoyed every minute of it. I even had dreams about it and I couldn't wait to listen to it every morning on my way to work.


    What other book might you compare The Storyteller to and why?

    It's a historical mystery and I loved it. I really can't compare it to anything because it's different than other books.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Listening to the grandmother tell her story was so neat. I think at one point I cried.


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

    Bread is food for the heart


    Any additional comments?

    I loved this book. Best book ever! Would recommend students read it in high school it's so good. I just thought it was so well written. The beginning is really slow but once it picks up it is amazing. Will change your life.

    A high-profile attorney in the middle of a leave of absence following a personal tragedy is drawn back into the legal arena amidst a media firestorm when he agrees to represent a popular rap artist accused of brutally murdering his pop star girlfriend. With its powerful voice, pause-resisting tension, and strong cast of characters, Adam Mitzner’s novels are reminiscent of such best-selling authors as Scott Turow and John Grisham.

    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.

    If you could sum up Dark Places in three words, what would they be?

    Creepy, creative, suspenseful


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

    Yes, it definitely did. Creative book with a twist at the end. I really got into the characters and the plot. I liked it better than Gone Girl.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Probably when she is trying to get out of the old girlfriend's house... but there are lots of great parts of the novel.


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

    Time doesn't heal all wounds!


    Any additional comments?

    I thought it was a great book... scary at points but really neat. Definitely a must read or listen to. I really really enjoyed it. A page turner for sure! I would recommend this to all my friends.

    Jodi Picoult delivers the riveting tale of one small town's entanglement with high-school violence.

    New York Superior Court Judge Alex Cormier is assigned to preside over the case of the alleged Sterling High School shooter. Lawyer Jordan McAffee represents Peter, the boy who, on the day of the shooting, was found in the corner of the gymnasium holding a gun to his head with a shaky hand. Detective Patrick DuCharme has one star witness, but her story keeps changing. And then there's the biggest problem of all: the star witness happens to be Judge Cormier's daughter.

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

    Yes, it was interesting. I am not dying to share it with a friend but it's a good read/listen.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Nineteen Minutes?

    The best moments are when you start to sympathize with the killer.


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

    I haven't but she did a great job.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    All the bullying really moved me. Made me nervous about sending my future children to school.


    Any additional comments?

    Good book. I like Jodi's Storyteller better, but this is also a good book. She does a great job developing the characters. I probably could have lived without the mother's new dating relationship. I didn't think it really added much to the plot.
