    The small farming town of Hypothermia, Minnesota makes world news when a '62 Chevy Implala is discovered in a trailer full of grain. Government agents quickly impound the Chevy, down playing the incident. Yet when agricultural cooperative photographer Bob Putnam attempts to follow up with a story about the elevator manager who found it, he and his writer/partner uncover an unbelievable plot.

    What disappointed you about Z is for Xenophobe?

    I never listen to science fiction--the write up for this book indicated an interesting story- very bizzare story-


    Any additional comments?

    make the write up cleared that this is science fiction.

    Born to a Las Vegas showgirl, fashion designer Faith Fitzgerald's childhood was not easy, until her father found her and whisked her off to L.A. to join his wealthy family. She works hard, never letting her guard down, until she discovers that someone stole her designs and sold them to her competitor and former mentor. To catch the thief and salvage her collection, Faith turns to her ex-lover, a man who works under the radar and gets results fast. The problem is she has not seen him since she dumped him so unceremoniously.

    What disappointed you about Dangerous Love?

    there is and echo on recording making it sound like the recording was not done in a recording studio. at times you can actually hear horns honking in the back ground. very distracting while driving and listening. story OK- at times the plot changes very abruptly-hard to follow with narration


    What didn’t you like about Valerie Gilbert’s performance?

    hard to follow which charactor she was trying to portray at times


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Dangerous Love?

    ??


    Any additional comments?

    Havew someone listen to this book- why are horns honking in back ground and other noises coming through??

    This 10th novel in Robyn Carr’s New York Times best-selling series features scruffy-looking ex-Navy gynecologist Aiden Riordan and prickly lawyer Erin Foley. While each just wants to get away from it all for the summer, a bear scare, a bizarre concussion, and a hilarious case of mistaken identity thrust them together and kindle an unlikely romance. Then Aiden’s scheming ex-wife shows up.

    Judy says: "Like Catching Up With Old Friends!"
    "good continuation of the Virgin River Series."

    If you could sum up Moonlight Road in three words, what would they be?

    I have listened to all of the Virgin River stories; this is a nice continuation; looking forward to the next!


    What other book might you compare Moonlight Road to and why?

    the other Virgin River Series!!

    The intrepid women of The Hot Flash Club are back for the holidays, soothing jingled nerves and stressed shoppers in their exclusive spa and celebrating the joys of the season. In her witty and delightfully wisecracking prose, Nancy Thayer tells a heartwarming tale packed with fun, secrets, romance, and an ample dose of good cheer.

    What would have made Hot Flash Holidays better?

    I purchased all three in series at same time-wish I would have listened to first one before getting the other two. Very detailed, wordy, kept waiting for something to happen.


    What was most disappointing about Nancy Thayer’s story?

    moved along so slow-not much of a story


    Have you listened to any of Carrington Macduffie’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, very goood


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It made a long road trip go by faster
