    Orphaned while onboard ship from Ireland, seven-year-old Lavinia arrives on the steps of a tobacco plantation where she is to live and work with the slaves of the kitchen house. Under the care of Belle, the master's illegitimate daughter, Lavinia becomes deeply bonded to her adopted family, though she is set apart from them by her white skin. Eventually, Lavinia is accepted into the world of the big house, where the master is absent and the mistress battles opium addiction.

    Overall

    I so enjoyed this story! I usually listen in the car to and from work, but this was one I had trouble leaving in the garage. I could not stop listening. The characters draw you in to their world, and I felt connected to them. I did not think it was sad. The story is told so well that you really do feel for these characters, their happiness and sadness. Naration was great, I will definitely listen again. Wish the author would write a sequel and continue this great story!

    When her four year old daughter informs her a sick man is in their yard, Honor Gillette rushes out to help him. But that "sick" man turns out to be Lee Coburn, the man accused of murdering seven people the night before. Dangerous, desperate, and armed, he promises Honor that she and her daughter won't be hurt as long as she does everything he asks. She has no choice but to accept him at his word.

    I downloaded this book based on previous reviews, and boy was I disappointed! I have enjoyed other Sandra Brown books, but this one was so predictable. And slow! I could not wait for it to be over, did a lot of fast forwarding. The ridiculous and repetitive banter between Coburn and Honor drove me nuts! I actually laughed hysterically at the end when the identity of the

    Tananarive Due, author of The Living Blood won the American Book Award and is praised as Stephen King's equal by Publishers Weekly. In The Good House, Due sets a story of ancient powers and modern retribution in a small Pacific Northwest town. When a young woman returns to her grandmother's empty mansion, she is pitted against demonic forces that have poisoned her family for generations.

    "Too Long!"
    Overall

    I have never done so much fast forwarding(and not missed anything!) Too long with too many unnecessary details. I don't know if I'll make it to the end.
    Would not compare to Stephen King! Just when things start moving, and the suspense builds, the author drones on with unnecessary details. 5 minutes loaded with synonyms about how bad his stomach hurts. We get it! Move on. While there were parts in the book that captivated, I'ts just too slow and long to keep me captivated. Maybe a better read than listen.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    I,ve listened to this twice now and will probably listen again! Narration was great, I became very attatched to these characters. What a wonderful story, I hated to see it end!!

    One of America’s most popular authors, Jodi Picoult has earned a reputation for crafting riveting, topical fiction. In House Rules she examines how being different can have dire consequences. Teenager Jacob Hunt has Asperger’s syndrome. A forensic science wizard, he follows his scanner to show up at crime scenes and give law enforcement officials his advice.

    Charlotte says: "Great book until the ending"
    "Not my favorite audio book!"
    Overall

    Very rarely do I wish for an audiobook to end, but this one seemed to go on forever! Not much mystery involved, I knew how the "murder" occured pretty early on. I waited until the end though, and it just did'nt deliver. The "lists" drove me crazy. Odd way of telling a story!
