    Abby Cooper is a P.I., psychic intuitive. But her insight failed her when she didn't foresee the death of one of her clients - or that the lead investigator for the case is the gorgeous blind date she just met. Now, with the police suspicious of her abilities and a killer on the loose, Abby's future looks more uncertain than ever.

    This feels like a great start to a great series. The main character is very likeable right away and the story sucked me in. This is a very easy breezy read with a nice twist... Perfect for summer reading!

    Darrow is a Red, a member of the lowest caste in the color-coded society of the future. Like his fellow Reds, he works all day, believing that he and his people are making the surface of Mars livable for future generations. Yet he spends his life willingly, knowing that his blood and sweat will one day result in a better world for his children. But Darrow and his kind have been betrayed. Soon he discovers that humanity reached the surface generations ago. Vast cities and sprawling parks spread across the planet.

    Story

    Once again I fell into the 'daily deal' trap and bought the first book of a series without realizing it was a series.

    Even though I didn't like that fact, I still enjoyed this book immensely.

    The idea of the color-coded society is great. The way how in the game the evolution of society was shown, was very interesting, especially because we can recognize so many patters from past and present societies. The references to our known culture and history (Roman empire, book names etc) are a nice touch. Brings it closer to home.

    The only reason why I didn't give this 5 stars is the fact that the end felt kind of rushed while other topics and areas where drawn out... and that I now have to wait until the next book is available. ;-)

Now Beth must navigate the underbelly of a city she doesn't know, and the only one who can help her is Nick Vargas, a disgraced newspaper reporter on the trail of a dangerous and deadly cult with big plans for its annual celebration...on the Day of the Dead.

    Story

    I did enjoy this book a lot... The plot was fast paced and had a couple of good twists and turns. Just the last quarter was a little too constructed for my taste.

    I wasn't much impressed with the narrator... the reading was very cliché in my opinion.

    Story

    I actually enjoyed this book until I realized that it is just a very long prologue to rest of the series. While I don't mind reading a series, I prefer each part being a story with a beginning, a middle and an end. This doesn't apply here and therefore I don't think I'll be picking up the next part.

    As for the premise of the story, I thought it was really interesting, to have these biblical themes reiterated in an alternative setting.

    Now a modern classic, as gripping in its tautly plotted action as it is penetrating in its exploration of a criminal mind, it tells the shocking tale of a young man who will stop at nothing--not even murder--to get where he wants to go. For he has dreams; plans. He also has charm, good looks, sex appeal, intelligence. And he has a problem. Her name is Dorothy; she loves him, and she's pregnant. The solution may demand desperate measures.

    This story was written in the 50s and feels timeless and modern still. It keeps the reader thinking and engaged the whole time, trying to figure it out along with the main character.

    In this mystery series by Dana Stabenow, the Edgar Award-winning author returns to the Alaskan setting she's famous for, with a wonderful character - state trooper Liam Campbell. Liam's just been transferred from Anchorage to the small fishing village of Newenham, Alaska - where a local pilot seems to have lost his head.

    In a Japan still rigid with tradition, an apprehensive 15-year-old tea-house girl prepares to welcome her first client. In his gleaming white uniform, Lieutenant Pinkerton walks up the hill to a house in Nagasaki to find the female he has purchased for a few weeks. When he sails away, she waits, aching for his return. It is one of the world’s great love stories. And, as the curtain falls on Madame Butterfly, Cho-Cho hands over her son to his American father, before killing herself...

    Pocket has been Lear's cherished fool for years. So naturally Pocket is at his brainless, elderly liege's side when Lear demands that his kids swear to him their undying love and devotion. Of course Goneril and Regan are only too happy to brownnose Dad. But Cordelia believes that her father's request is kind of...well...stupid, and her blunt honesty ends up costing her her rightful share of the kingdom and earns her a banishment to boot.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

    Story

    This book has a great idea, but for my taste, it's poorly executed.
    Firstly, I think it needs editing for length... There is no need for this book to be 33hrs, there is just not enough substance.
    Secondly, there is too much graphic violence in this book. I personally avoid graphic violence in movies and books and some of the scenes made me feel sick to my stomach, so I ended up deleting it from my device about half way through.

    With a career, a boyfriend, and a loving family, Piper Kerman barely resembles the reckless young woman who delivered a suitcase of drug money 10 years ago. But that past has caught up with her. Convicted and sentenced to 15 months at the infamous federal correctional facility in Danbury, Connecticut, the well-heeled Smith College alumna is now inmate #11187-424 - one of the millions of women who disappear "down the rabbit hole" of the American penal system.

    Story

    Beyond hearing Piper Kerman's own story, it also gives insight to every day life in a low security prison and the people that she encounters in this time. On top of that, the author supplemented the story with statistics and facts about the prison system in general.

    The performance of Cassandra Campbell really brings this story alive.
