    Christy finalist Charles Martin writes faith-based novels that engage believers and non-believers alike with their realistic and touching stories of Southern living. In a quiet rural town in South Carolina, the end of summer is bittersweet for Dylan Styles. Faced with a terrible tragedy, he must struggle to understand the dramatic change that has come over him. Life will never be the same for Dylan, but will his soul be darkened by heartbreak or galvanized through hope?

    If you could sum up The Dead Don't Dance in three words, what would they be?

    Feels so good!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Dead Don't Dance?

    I think mentioning what is the most memorable moment to someone reading this review would ruin the story. Each person had to experience it for themselves.


    What does Tom Stechschulte bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The emotion that is brought to life by the reader makes the story all the more compelling.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book made me cry with compassion for the main character.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a must listen book.

    On Sunday, November 29, 2009, more than 12.5 million families fell in love with the television adaptation of the novel A Dog Named Christmas. Within forty-eight hours after the Hallmark Hall of Fame movie aired, the initial run of twenty thousand DVDs sold out. Two years later, when Christmas with Tucker, the prequel to the McCray family stories, was released, it was described by Dean Koontz as “a perfect Christmas read,” by A. J. Jacobs as “lovely and poignant,” and by Publishers Weekly as “cute, hopeful, and heartwarming.” Now, the much-anticipated third installment, A Christmas Home, will prove to be yet another holiday classic.

    I always love Christmas time with the stories that authors come out with to cheer our holidays up. This is a continuation of a dog named Christmas which takes us to when Todd reaches adulthood and how he is coping with his disability and Christmas. A must read all, teary and heart warming story! Thank you Greg Kincaid for not disappointing your fondest readers.

    Plagued by a war between magic and technology, Atlanta has never been so deadly. Good thing Kate Daniels is on the job. Kate Daniels may have quit the Order of Merciful Aid, but she's still knee-deep in paranormal problems. Or she would be if she could get someone to hire her. Starting her own business has been more challenging than she thought it would be - now that the Order is disparaging her good name, and many potential clients are afraid of getting on the bad side of the Beast Lord, who just happens to be Kate's mate.

    Her career in homicide has taken her into the darkest depths of New York City’s underground - and sometimes Lieutenant Eve Dallas feels more comfortable in those kinds of places than in the high-rise, high-society world of her billionaire husband, Roarke. But while she’s no party girl, she’s managing to have a reasonably good time at the celebrity-packed bash celebrating the debut of The Icove Agenda. This time it’s Eve, not Roarke, who’s a guest of honor, since the film is based on one of her famous cases. Her partner, Peabody, is practically giddy....

    Yes was very hard to turn off especially at bedtime.

  • Skippy Dies

    • UNABRIDGED (23 hrs and 41 mins)

    Story
    (891)

    This touching and uproarious novel by author Paul Murray made everyone’s best fiction of 2010 lists, including The Washington Post, Financial Times, Village Voice, and others. Why Skippy dies and what happens next is the mystery that links the boys of Dublin’s Seabrook College (Ruprecht Van Doren, the overweight genius obsessed with string theory; Carl, the teenager drug dealer and borderline psychotic; Philip Kilfether, the basketball-playing midget) to their parents and teachers in ways that no one could have imagined.

    Laura says: "Funny, touching, entertaining"
    "Most boring book I have ever listened to."

    it jumped around so much you couldn't get to know the characters.

    droning voice


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    nope


    Any additional comments?
