    In the wake of a disastrous affair with her married archeology professor, brilliant Wilhelmina Cooper arrives back at the doorstep of her hippie mother-turned-born-again-Christian's house in Templeton, New York - a storybook town her ancestors founded on the shores of Lake Glimmerglass. Upon her arrival, a prehistoric monster surfaces in the lake, bringing a feeding frenzy to the quiet town. And Willie learns she has a mystery father her mother has kept secret for Willie's entire life.

    "Love this novel"
    Overall

    After reading the novel, I chose it as my selection for my book club. I was a bit leary because of the fantasy elements in the book, but I loved it and thought the women in the club would at least not hate it. To prepare for the meeting, I ordered the book and listened to it driving back and forth to work. I thoroughly enjoyed the narration and liked the book as much the second time through. I highly recommend it. (And several members of the club DID like this poetic, strange, brilliant first novel.)

    Mitch Peabody was learning pretty fast that the life of a private detective was nothing like the movies. He’d envisioned a world of tough-talking detectives and smart-mouthed, stunning dames. Instead he saw case after case of cheating husbands, suspicious wives and unsuspecting mistresses…until she walked through the door.

    It is not Crusie's best, but I still enjoyed it overall. I am reading all of her books. Nice escapism with real insight into relationships.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Would you listen to The Help again? Why?

    It was really interseting, but maybe once is enough.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Abilene and Hillie. Good and evil. And I loved the relationship between Minny and Celia is terrific.

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    What did you love best about A Discovery of Witches?

    I never thought I would enjoy a book about witches and vampires, nearly 30 hours long, and part 1 of a trilogy. But a friend recommended it and I admit she was correct. I look forward to the next book.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Agnes and the Hitman to be better than the print version?

    One of Cruisie's better humorous stories.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!


    Any additional comments?

    Brenda is one of the best female villains of all time. I genuinely hated her, and it is a comedy!

    Craig Johnson's books are some of my all-time favorites! And the series on A&E, "Longmire," looks promising too.


    What about George Guidall???s performance did you like?

    George is my favorite male narrator of all. The ???Cat Who" series, with his narrarion, and the Tony Hillerman books,.... Very special and memorable. Sexy voice!

    At the old family manse in Louisiana, Special Agent Pendergast is putting to rest long-ignored possessions reminiscent of his wife Helen's tragic death, only to make a stunning - and dreadful - discovery. Helen had been mauled by an unusually large and vicious lion while they were big game hunting in Africa. But now, Pendergast learns that her rifle-her only protection from the beast-had been deliberately loaded with blanks. Who could have wanted Helen dead...and why?

    Snoodely says: "Intelligent, spooky thriller"
    "Wow!"
    Overall

    This is my favorite Agent Pendergast book yet! Great suspense, subtle humor, and more background on the brilliant, enigmatic FBI special agent. I will listen to this one again!

    As the widow of an infamous race car champion, Abby O'Hurley shunned publicity. But how could she keep charming, disarming, and ruthlessly cynical biographer Dylan Crosby from uncovering her darkest secrets?

    Jill says: "Good Read"
    "Classic Roberts"
    Overall

    I thoroughly enjoyed "The Last Honest Woman" by Nora Roberts. A story of loss, fear, secrets, love and salvation, it is classic Roberts. The book is part of very nicely priced 4-novel selection about an Irish family of actors who have a son and triplet daughters who grow to have adult adventures and ultimately find true love. Yes, these are fairy tales for grown-ups, but I cannot think of a nicer way to relax after the world's often-harsh realities intrude upon my day. Highly recommended.
