    The Good House tells the story of Hildy Good, who lives in a small town on Boston's North Shore. Hildy is a successful real-estate broker, good neighbor, mother, and grandmother. She's also a raging alcoholic. Hildy's family held an intervention for her about a year before this story takes place - "if they invite you over for dinner, and it’s not a major holiday," she advises "run for your life" - and now she feels lonely and unjustly persecuted. She has also fooled herself into thinking that moderation is the key.

    Rhonda Morrison says: "What a great book, Hildy is a great character!"
    "I just wanted it to get to the point!"

    Story

    Turns out.. there was no point . It was like sitting with an old lady listening to her drone on about all of her friends and peers with way way too many details. That being said the story about the alcoholism was very interesting very real very raw I just wish that there was more to it. The voice of the lady who's was Reading was captivating I loved every second of it I actually want to read I mean listen to more books that she read it was great I think it's why I continue to listen

    While his successful wife goes off to her law office each day, Simon Connolly takes care of their kids, Jake and Laney. Now that they are in high school, the angst-ridden father should feel more relaxed, but he doesn't. He's seen the statistics, read the headlines. And now, his darkest fear is coming true. There has been a shooting at school.

    Story

    very lacking emotion.. very little character development.. no suspense.. long drawn out story.. I didn't root for anyone.. characters are all unlikeable.. even Jake.. I usually enjoy every book.. this one not at all
