    New York Times best-selling author Suzanne Brockmann, whom USA Today calls “the reigning queen of military suspense”, breaks out a rapid-fire collection of pulse-pounding, heart-tugging stories and novellas featuring the intrepid men and women of Troubleshooters Inc., fiction’s hottest ultimate counterterrorism squad.

    What disappointed you about Headed for Trouble?

    It was just a bunch of repeats and what the author likes about her characters.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I would love for it to be another Suzanne Brockman military, romance, action packed, 5-star book. I truly love her writing.


    What does Patrick Lawlor and Melanie Ewbank bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Patrick Lawlor is soooo good at putting the exact spin on his voice to match the emotion of the character. Truly his reading skill fascinates me. Melanie brings life and emotion to her characters and is consistent with maintaining the correct voice.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Headed for Trouble?

    The entire "book". This should have been just a YouTube interview.


    Any additional comments?

    As I said, I LOVE Suzanne Brockman's writing. Had been waiting a long time for another book in her Troubleshooters series, or maybe even a book to start an entire new series. I feel her fans, her very loyal readers, were duped into thinking this was a continuation of the series. I can't believe her precious writing time was wasted on this.

    When soap opera star Abby Langford leaves Los Angeles for her Minnesota hometown, she’s hoping to give her nine-year-old daughter the peaceful childhood she never knew. But instead of tranquility, Abby finds an old knife hidden between the walls of her new Victorian house. Then the nightmares start: a blood-soaked victim and a killer’s arm slicing through the air, again and again. Police Chief Josh Kincaid assumes Abby is just scheming to get back into the tabloid headlines. But she’s turning out to be nothing like the spoiled diva he imagined. Abby is warm, honest, sexy, and the target of very real death threats.

    What made the experience of listening to Dangerous Affairs the most enjoyable?

    Good flow with this story. There were some twists that added to the intrigue of the plot. Interesting characters, but not so many that it was hard to remember who was who. Any story is better when there are good chuckles. There was suspense, romance, laughs and plot twists. What more could a reader ask for.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dangerous Affairs?

    When she showed her daughter the school where she had gone as a kid. There were memories and suspense and a good laugh about learning to cut with scissors.


    What about Karen White’s performance did you like?

    Karen White is a consistent narrator. I recognized immediately that she had read some of the Miss Julia books.


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

    Yes, I pretty much listened to the book in one sitting. I listen while I do my crafts and find it helps to have a book that keeps me settled in for the long haul. However, it is also difficult when the story is over before my project is done. I hope her next book is longer.


    Any additional comments?

    When is the next book going to be published and recorded?

    With The Look of Love, best-selling author Bella Andre introduces you to a fun and emotional contemporary romance series about the Sullivan family. Because when a Sullivan bad boy falls... he falls hard. And it's forever. Chloe Peterson is having a bad night. A really bad night. The large bruise on her cheek can attest to that. And when her car skids off the side of a wet country road straight into a ditch, she's convinced even the gorgeous guy who rescues her must be too good to be true. Or is he?

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who wants to live vicariously through someone else's sex life.


    What could Bella Andre have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    If only she had developed the characters instead of having one sex scene after the other to take up space. At one point I started to walk out of the room when I realized the book was still playing, then kept on going because it was just another sex scene.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I enjoyed the interaction when the photo secession was in the pool.


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

    All the characters were interesting and worked. They just never got to do anything.


    Any additional comments?

    Because I first listened to the book of how Mary and Jack Sullivan got together, at least I did get to find out what happened to Jack.

    Six months ago, New York restaurant owner Alexis "Lexi" Moreau walked in on her husband, Jeff, and their sous chef mixing business with pleasure.

All she needs is luck, lots of hard work, and a way to avoid the 30 blind dates her matchmaking grandmother arranged. Enter Marco DeLuca - Jeff’s handsome, commitment-phobe best friend who has always had his sights set on Lexi.

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

    At times I was really confused as to what the story line was trying to say? Maybe will figure it out on a return read. There were some really sweet moments that made up for my sometimes confusion. Also a couple off right out loud laughs. Would I listen to it again? Yes.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Summer in Napa?

    All of the moments that included the dog were memorable. Loved Wing Man.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The final scene was my favorite, but I don't want to give it away.


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

    I was particularly moved by the confrontation toward the end when they were in the bakery.
    Truly heart-breaking.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this book enough to check out what else Audible had by this author.
