    Meet 22-year-old Cherry Pye (nee Cheryl Bunterman), a pop star since she was 14 - and about to attempt a comeback from her latest drug-and-alcohol disaster.Now meet Cherry again: in the person of her undercover stunt double, Ann DeLusia. Ann portrays Cherry whenever the singer is too indisposed - meaning wasted - to go out in public. And it is Ann-mistaken-for-Cherry who is kidnapped from a South Beach hotel by obsessed paparazzo Bang Abbott.

    Overall

    Usually I like books by this author but this one went nowhere fast. By the 3/4 mark I didn't care for any of the characters and didn't care what happened to them so I stopped listening. There was some funny lines but the story line was a dead end. I just wanted all the characters to go away and since they couldn't, I did.

    Thomas Lynley is called back to Scotland Yard when the body of a woman is found stabbed and abandoned in an isolated London cemetery. His former team doesn't trust the leadership of their new department chief, Isabelle Ardery, but Lynley may be the sole person who can see beneath his superior officer's hard-as-nails exterior to a hidden and possibly attractive vulnerability.

    Rebecca says: "Interesting Mix for Elizabeth George Fans"
    "A long time fan"
    Overall

    I am gradually getting over Helen being killed off several books ago but I am still reading books about Lindley. This one was a reasonable read but not as good as many of the early books.

  • The Glass Rainbow: A Dave Robicheaux Novel

    Why we think it’s a great listen: When it comes to author/narrator pairings, nobody tops James Lee Burke and Will Patton in the Robicheaux thrillers. Beloved Burke hero Detective Dave Robicheaux here returns to New Iberia to solve a series of grisly murders. Seven young women in neighboring Jefferson Davis Parish have been brutally murdered. While the crimes have all the telltale signs of a serial killer, the death of Bernadette Latiolais, a high-school honor student, doesn’t fit.

    Gardner says: "Best Yet... Almost"
    "Great read"
    Overall

    I am always thrilled when this author writes a new book and eagerly await its arrival on Audible. This one was worth the wait. A compelling story line and for the first time a hint of the supernatural at least in Dave's mind. You won't be disappointed if you are a fan of James Lee Burke. Keep writing JLB!

  • Burn: An Anna Pigeon Mystery, Book 16

    Anna Pigeon, a Ranger with the National Park Service, is on administrative leave from her job as she recovers from the traumas of the past couple of months – while the physical wounds have healed, the emotional ones are still healing. With her new husband busy and back at work, Anna decides to go to stay with an old friend from the Park Service, Geneva, who works as a singer at the New Orleans Jazz National Historic Park.

    Ilah says: "Bring other narrator back!!!!"
    "Ugh"
    Overall

    I am a big fan of Nevada Barr but this one was disappointing. It started off strong and I enjoyed the way she brought the two threads together but the last part was very unpleasant to read. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone unless they have a strong stomach. Also I wish Nevada would stick to stories set in the great outdoors. When she writes about a national park in an urban setting she loses my interest.
