    Like the city of New Orleans itself, Claire Laurent is a vibrant beauty laced with a mysterious elusiveness. The founder of French Silk, a fabulous lingerie company, she has fought hard to make it a worldwide success. Then a TV evangelist attacks French Silk’s erotic sleepwear as sinful. And when he is killed, Claire becomes the prime suspect. District Attorney Robert Cassidy knows Claire is damning herself with lie after lie about the murder, even as he feels her drawing him into her world and her very soul....

    I couldn't wait to finish this book because the reader was awful. She overdid the accent, ad nauseum.

  • Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail (Oprah's Book Club 2.0)

    At 22, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother's death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life: to hike the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State - and to do it alone. She had no experience as a long-distance hiker, and the trail was little more than “an idea, vague and outlandish and full of promise.” But it was a promise of piecing back together a life that had come undone.

    Story

    I was captured by her story because it's so removed from anything that I would do. I just couldn't imagine someone daring to do that alone. Bernadette Dunne, the reader, was so great. I don't think that Cheryl, herself, could have given the book more of a personal touch. And I loved the people that she met on the trail. And I loved the happy ending.

    I had a special mother and I shared so many of the same happy moments with my mom as Cheryl did. Loved it!!

    "Of all of my novels, After the Night remains one of my personal favorites – and Faith Devlin and Gray Rouillard are two of my favorite characters. Faith is strong, proud, and fearless, and Gray – well, he’s just downright sexy. Faith’s search for the truth about the devastating scandal surrounding her mother and Gray’s father blazes with intrigue. Add some sultry Southern hear, and you’ve got a real scorcher of a listen."

    Even though the story was simple, I enjoyed listening to it. There were a few twists that made it interesting.

    In The Newlyweds, we follow the story of Amina Mazid, who at age twenty-four moves from Bangladesh to Rochester, New York, for love. A hundred years ago, Amina would have been called a mail-order bride. But this is an arranged marriage for the twenty-first century: Amina is wooed by - and woos - George Stillman online. For Amina, George offers a chance for a new life and a different kind of happiness than she might find back home. For George, Amina is a woman who doesn’t play games.

    Won't keep you up all night reading but I liked it.
    The most interesting part for me was learning something of the culture of Bangaladesh. The reader was convincing as a person from that country speaking English.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    Story

    I made an 11 hour drive while listening to Gone Girl. I remember very little about the trip because I was so enthralled with the book. I stopped once for gas. When I got hungry, I went through a drive-through. Haven't read a book in a long time that captured me from Page 1 and never let go.

    In the romantic suspense novel Second Chance, Karina Harris weaves an intriguing tale of hope and uncertainty in the story of Avalin Summers, an art student who is fiercely loyal to her older brothers, Jaden and Quinn. When Jaden requests a family meeting at their childhood farm in Colorado, she doesn't question him. But what she discovers is something she hasn't dared to dream about for the past five years.

    Jacqui says: "Horrible narrator"
    "Elementary, Predictable"
    Overall

    This book is the worst I've ever downloaded from Audible. The story was immature, the characters were predictable. The bad book was made worse by the reader. I've never heard such a childlike reading. Is she 12?
