    Brooklyn has always been a little obsessed with food, but it was her sister, Savannah, who became a chef, graduating from the prestigious Cordon Bleu school in Paris. She and her classmates all went on to successful careers, but none of them achieved culinary superstardom like Savannah's ex-boyfriend Baxter Cromwell. When Baxter invites the old gang to participate in his new restaurant's gala opening, in San Francisco, Savannah asks Brooklyn to restore a tattered cookbook as a present for him. Shortly after receiving the gift, Baxter is found dead, with Savannah kneeling over him, bloody knife in hand, and the rare cookbook has disappeared....

    If you could sum up A Cookbook Conspiracy in three words, what would they be?

    I love Brooklyn! She is so amazing. I hated that Audible didn't have the other three books, so I went and ordered the other 3 not on audible. Brooklyn and her odd family are so enjoyable.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I hated that Audible didn't have the other three books, so I went and ordered the other 3 not on audible. Brooklyn and her odd family are so enjoyable. I find myself rereading these books so often. This one showcased a different sister, and More to our Mysterious Derrick's background.


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

    This book didn't have Minka in it, that made me sad. But I so didn't like how it was more about cooking than it was about books. But, its ok, once I got past the food fact I loved the book mystery, still Less About Books!

    Tom Knox, the best-selling author of The Genesis Secret, delivers a spine-tingling novel that “may well be the most controversial thriller since The Da Vinci Code” (Jeff Abbott). When David Martinez inherits an ancient map from his dying grandfather, the map—and the promise of two million dollars—leads David into the Basque heart of the treacherous Pyrenees.

    Would you try another book from Tom Knox and/or Steven Crossley?

    Steven Crossley -- I would surely recommend
    Tom Knox -- not so sure I would suggest him to anyone


    What could Tom Knox have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    This book was exciting, but way too graphic. I didn't ever want to know what burning human smells like.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm not prudish or objective, but wow! This book was graphic in the extreme. The story is fanatical, give strange extra extraordinary powers to the guys hunting down the running guy that he wants to kill. So, hated it.

    A new urban fantasy featuring a man working on the right side of the law - with talents that come from left field. Psychometry - the power to touch an object and divine information about its history - has meant a life of petty crime for Simon Canderous, but now he's gone over to the good side. At New York's underfunded and (mostly) secret Department of Extraordinary Affairs, he's learning about red tape, office politics, and the basics of paranormal investigation. But it's not the paperwork that has him breathless.

    What made the experience of listening to Dead to Me the most enjoyable?

    I had a hard time getting into David DeVries' voice. He reminded me of a Simpson's character voice, but getting past that the book was very good. I enjoyed it alot.


    What other book might you compare Dead to Me to and why?

    The Harry Dresden series. The world setting reminds me of Dresden and the way that butcher told the story seemed to be linked in my mind.


    What about David DeVries’s performance did you like?

    I was not to happy with his voice.
