    They were best friends, four talented and charismatic young men who lived charmed lives among the evergreens of Washington state: Kevin, the artist; Steve, the sculptor; Scott, the nature lover and unabashed ladies' man; and Mark, the musician and poet. With their stunning good looks, whip-sharp minds, athletic bodies - and no lack of women who adored them - none of them seemed slated for disaster. But few knew the reality behind the leafy screen that surrounded Seven Cedars, Scott's woodland dream home....

    The first 18 chapters were all about the charecters growing up. I kept wondering she was ever going to talk about the actual crime! I was getting bored and frustrated. After that it got better, but still not her best in my opion.

    In the early morning hours of May 2, 1990, my stepfather, Rich Duncan, checked out of the Motel 6 in Moses Lake, Washington, and traveled over the North Cascades Highway en route to his home in Duvall, Washington. He was supposed to be home by four o'clock that afternoon. Two days later, police discovered his abandoned car in the small town of Darrington, Washington. As my mother desperately struggled to get law enforcement to help find her husband, his killer set out to cover up his crime and evade detection.

    Every mother's worst fear became Sharon Rocha's reality. On Christmas Eve 2002, she received a phone call from her son-in-law saying that her daughter, Laci, was missing. In the hours, days, and eventually months that followed, Sharon struggled to avoid accepting what no parent should ever have to face: the certain knowledge that her child is never coming home.

    Michael Severance survived five tours of duty with the Air Force in the war torn Middle East. But he could not survive five months of marriage to Wendi Davidson. Wendi, a young veterinarian in the isolated city of San Angelo, Texas, decided the solution to her problem was to give her husband a lethal injection.

    Very good listen! I thought the narrater was excellent! The husband killer Wendy Davidson should rot in jail but sadly will be out soon. Huge injustice for husbands family!! They should have been awarded custody of there murdered sons baby! Justice system, cps failed them miserably big time! Sad!!!
    Wendy Davidson and her whole family are a bunch of losers who will never take responsibility for anything in there lives! It's apparent in this book! I don't understand people like this? Bad genes I guess!
    My condolences to Micheal Severances family.

    I thought this was a very interesting story! True crime at its best! I really like this author, he is in my opinion, one of the best true crime writers and I've listened to several. This book made me sad for the victims of this psychopath and mad that our justice system is so messed up! In the end justice finally prevailed but too bad another life had to be taken first! The narrater was awesome! Best narrater I have ever heard! Can't wait to listen to him again! Thanks J. Charles!!

    Beloved, best-selling author Lauraine Snelling weaves a story of holiday romance, which begins with a simple advertisement for a horse's companion. Turner McNeally's daughter has gone off to college, and her horse is demonstrating signs of loneliness. Rebecca Wilkinson's son hasn't spoken a word since his father's death, and the family counselor suggests a pet. What will Christmas bring these troubled hearts? And what is this gift from God that Turner McNeally keeps talking about?

    I bought this book because of the reviews.. Unfortunetly I disagree with such great reviews. At first I thought this was going to be an inspirational story, but right when I thought it was going to start getting good it ended just like that! Like the author ran out of time and cut it short! Very disappointed!

    The story begins in 1962. On a rocky patch of the sun-drenched Italian coastline, a young innkeeper, chest-deep in daydreams, looks out over the incandescent waters of the Ligurian Sea and spies an apparition: a tall, thin woman, a vision in white, approaching him on a boat. She is an actress, he soon learns, an American starlet, and she is dying. And the story begins again today, half a world away, when an elderly Italian man shows up on a movie studio's back lot - searching for the mysterious woman he last saw at his hotel decades earlier.

    Story

    after reading all the reviews I bought this book and it wasnt what everyone claimed it to be. It was interesting at times but definitely not a great love story and way to much detail in certain chapters that was just blah blah blah about certain people that was just boring and I had to ff to get thru it. Overall the story wasn't very good. Very slow
    best part was the reader he was really good!
    Bottom line don't waste your time.

    On November 10, 2008, Dr. Eben Alexander was driven into coma by a disease so lethal that only 1 in 10,000,000 survive. Seven days later, he awakened with memories of a fantastic odyssey deep into another realm that were more real than this earthly one - memories that included meeting a deceased birth sister he had never known existed. Dr. Alexander deployed all his knowledge as a scientist to find out whether his mind could have played a trick on him. In its shutdown state, there was no way it could have.

    An in-depth story of the astronaut love triangle that shocked America. This captivating account casts light on Lisa Nowak's groundbreaking fall from grace. She was accomplished, successful, and heroic - one of the first astronauts to fly a space shuttle mission after the 2003 Columbia tragedy. Then a primitive attack of jealousy led to a fateful confrontation with her romantic rival that destroyed her reputation, ended her career and left a victim dazed and confused.

    So far this book is ridiculous! The first 30 some chapters are dedicated to everything about nasa and the history of the space shuttle! blah blah blah!! I had to fast forward through most of it. I finally just got to the part where the real story begins and now Im just to bored to finish listening to it! This book could have probably been summed up in 5 chapters at best. Booooorrrrrringgg!!!
