    Trenton, New Jersey’s favorite used-car dealer, Jimmy Poletti, was caught selling a lot more than used cars out of his dealerships. Now he’s out on bail and has missed his date in court, and bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is looking to bring him in. Leads are quickly turning into dead ends, and all too frequently into dead bodies. Even Joe Morelli, the city’s hottest cop, is struggling to find a clue to the suspected killer’s whereabouts. These are desperate times, and they call for desperate measures.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Got 40 hours to kill? You’ll find the time when you start listening to Lee’s take on Follett’s epic – and widely celebrated – novel of 12th-century England. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...and of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame....

    What did you love best about The Pillars of the Earth?

    I enjoyed Aliana and Ellen !


    What other book might you compare The Pillars of the Earth to and why?

    The Clifton Chronicles,(Jeffrey Archer) many parallels only a different time period.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There were so many, hard to pinpoint one without it being a spoiler for anyone who has not read/listened to this yet.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I had to skip the entire chapter when William was stoning the cats, I couldn't listen.


    Any additional comments?

    I LOVED THE NARRATOR !!! He is in my top five of favorites !

    What disappointed you about Chilled?

    It was very predictable.


    Has Chilled turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, they are an easy listen, like a filler, better if they are on sale for sure.


    What didn’t you like about Emily Sutton-Smith’s performance?

    Too many men in this story for one voice of a woman.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Irritated that they didn't try and get down the mountain with more urgency.

    Detective Tess McCrae investigates a grisly crime scene in the ghost town of Credo, Arizona. The evidence suggests a cartel drug hit. But Tess, with a nearly faultless photographic memory, sees what others might miss: This is no drug killing. Someone went to gruesome lengths to cover their tracks. The killer’s trail leads from Tucson to California - from anti-government squatters to the heights of wealthy society. As Tess follows the trail of gore and betrayal, perfect and indelible in her memory, she uncovers far more than one man’s murder and solves much more than one isolated crime.

    Charley Davidson isn’t your everyday, run-of-the-mill grim reaper. She’s more of a paranormal private eye/grim reaper extraordinaire. However, she gets sidetracked when the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, moves in next door. To further complicate matters, Reyes is her main suspect in an arson case. Charley has vowed to stay away from him until she can find out the truth... but then dead women start appearing in her apartment, one after another, each lost, confused, and terrified beyond reason.

    Will Robie is a master of killing. A highly skilled assassin, Robie is the man the U.S. government calls on to eliminate the worst of the worst - enemies of the state, monsters committed to harming untold numbers of innocent victims.No one else can match Robie's talents as a hitman...no one, except Jessica Reel. A fellow assassin, equally professional and dangerous, Reel is every bit as lethal as Robie. And now, she's gone rogue, turning her gun sights on other members of their agency.

    What did you love best about The Hit?

    The sense of emotion that happened on the plane, the parts that included Julie, the ending.


    Would you be willing to try another book from David Baldacci? Why or why not?

    Of course. Loved The Innocent !!!


    What about Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy ’s performance did you like?

    I loved Orlagh's there was just enough inflection change for each different character to be believable. McLarty's was perhaps tainted by what I "thought" Robie might sound like.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The parts that included Julie, the plane to Dublin and the ending. "close your eyes."


    Any additional comments?

    Usually I hate it when the author repeatedly refers to background on the main character, but this time he barely referred back.

    A smashing, award-winning debut novel that introduces Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper. Charley sees dead people. That’s right, she sees dead people. And it’s her job to convince them to “go into the light”. But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (i.e. murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she’s been having about an Entity who has been following her all her life...and it turns out he might not be dead after all.

    Nothing it was a perfect set-up for the subsequent books !!!

    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Theres six books, it would have to be epic from the start.

    Its fun, the narrator is FANTASTIC, its an easy listen and a great way to forget that you are driving 500+ miles.
