    After a family tragedy, Kate Donnelly left the Caribbean behind forever. But a series of bad management decisions has left her family's diving and marine-recovery business drowning in red ink. Now her brother pleads with her to come back to the island nation of St Vincent. Without Kate's financial expertise, the iconic treasure-hunting enterprise started by her grandfather will go under. Unable to say no to the little family she has left, Kate heads back to the beautiful and terrifying ocean that still haunts her nightmares.

    Elizabeth Lowell is one of those authors that I automatically buy whenever a new book is released. I wish I had listenend to a sample of this one because I was ready to abandon the book after the first minute or so. I did finally get through it but I will be sure not to buy another book narrated by this person. The story itself was not one of Ms. Lowell's best but it certainly would have been improved by good narration.

    Instead of saying "I do" to Mr. Irresistible, Lucy Jorik hitches a ride on the back of a beat-up motorcycle with a rough looking, bad-tempered stranger who couldn't be more foreign to her privileged existence. While the world searches for her, Lucy must search for herself, and she quickly realizes that her customary good manners are no defense against a man who's raised rudeness to an art form. Lucy needs to toughen up - and fast. Her great escape takes her to his rambling beach house on a Great Lakes island. Here, she hopes to find a new direction...and to unlock the secrets of this man who knows so much about her.

    I have loved *most* of the books of Susan Elizabeth Phillips but every once in a while she writes one I just can't enjoy. Fancy Pants, the first book in this series, is the only one of her books I've had to leave unfinished and I've tried it twice. This book was another one of those and it was made worse by the absolutely terrible narration -- I didn't like the reader in the last book of this series and she was even worse in this one. If you're like me and you can't resist trying all of SEP's books, I would recommend reading and not listening to this one.

    Dressed in Victorian attire, Juliana Anderson gives guests at her cozy New England bed and breakfast a taste of old-fashioned hospitality. Whether she’s cooking up delights in her kitchen or maintaining the rooms in her beautifully decorated inn, Juliana stays busy and content. Until Webster Donovan arrives - tall, rugged, and sexy beyond belief. The lean, dark-haired author has a bad case of writer’s block and he’s planned a six-week stay to cure it.

    Every once in a while I get a book that I just can't finish. This was one of those. There was no plot -- it was just all feelings and misunderstandings. I usually enjoy Suzanne Brockmann but this must have been an early one of hers and definitely not one of her best.

    In Chicago, an FBI agent is killed in a psychiatrist's waiting room. In New York, the jurors from a controversial trial are murdered one by one. The only connections between the two: a flamboyant shock-jock, whose on-air comments seem to be taking him dangerously close to the edge; and a woman, her body misshapen since childhood, whose job it is to clean up crime scenes, and maybe create them as well. This is a federal case, and Mallory's been told that the FBI wants no part of her.

    Carol says: "Peculiar book"
    "Highly recommended"
    Overall

    The Mallory series of mystery books by Carol O'Connell is definitely an acquired taste. I have read all of them and always look forward with great anticipation to each new installment. For some reason, however, when I read this book the first time, I just couldn't get into it and put it down after a few chapters. When I saw it was available in audio format I decided to try it again and I'm so glad I did. I became thoroughly engrossed in the story and really enjoyed the reading. I would recommend it to any Kathy Mallory fan.

    With her frayed jeans and cascade of tousled dark hair, Lynn Shaw looks more like one of the teenage residents of Horizon House than their counselor. So it's no wonder State Senator Erik Gunther mistakes her for one. Not that he exactly fits the description of a politician, with his movie-star looks and athletic build. Even Lynn, cynical, stubborn, and decidedly not looking for a relationship, can't ignore her body's response to the man.

    sea says: "Boring"
    "Couldn't finish this!"
    Overall

    I've enjoyed all the Tami Hoag books I've read / listened to up until this one. Her books always include some romantic elements, and they're usually pretty well-done but this one was so cheesy and over the top I just had to stop listening before the end. Perhaps it was written for a differnt audience than her other books -- like a Harlequin romance series?
