    The queen of the street lit genre, De’nesha Diamond pens tales about the toughest ride-or-die chicks ever to roam the streets of the Dirty South. In Street Divas, four powerful women vie for total control of the Memphis hood, and they aren’t about to let past loyalties get in their way. While Lucifer is hitting the streets to get her revenge for a deadly shooting, Essence is hitting the sheets - with her best friend’s man. And Yolanda knows her path to power lies with her baby’s hustler father, but Queen G Leshelle is dead set on keeping this game all to herself.

    This was the 2nd book I've listen to from this author, the story rambled on and on given the fact that it's 15 hours I guess it had to. The story was repetitive on some parts but overall it kept you guessing.

    Dr. Emory Charbonneau, a pediatrician and marathon runner, disappears on a mountain road in North Carolina. By the time her husband Jeff, miffed over a recent argument, reports her missing, the trail has grown cold. Literally. Fog and ice encapsulate the mountainous wilderness and paralyze the search for her. While police suspect Jeff of "instant divorce," Emory, suffering from an unexplained head injury, regains consciousness and finds herself the captive of a man whose violent past is so dark that he won't even tell her his name.

A scientist who studied grief among elephants, Alice wrote mostly of her research among the animals she loved, yet Jenna hopes the entries will provide a clue to her mother’s whereabouts. Desperate to find the truth, Jenna enlists two unlikely allies in her quest.

    Would you listen to Leaving Time again? Why?

    No, I think 1 time was enough. After listening to the way it ended had me questioning where to place the characters and how they matched in the end.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, it definitely kept me on edge, I didn't know if Alice was dead or alive.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I liked hearing the different voices together and how they humanized the characters in my mind.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me sad but happy that Alice and Jenna found peace at the end and that the story was actually told.

    What made the experience of listening to The Storyteller the most enjoyable?

    Very great listen catered with historical facts


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Storyteller?

    There were several moments but the end stood out


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    The narrator's were splendid and depicted the accent perfectly


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

    I like longer books as they tend to last over several days so there's no way I could listen in one sitting due to the amount of hours it is

    Don't miss out on this listen, it's very good.

    It was supposed to be a harmless camping trip. Six wayward teenagers who'd run into trouble with the law, and their court-appointed guardians, Sara and Martin Randhurst. Three nights on a small, deserted island off of Michigan's upper peninsula. A time to bond, to learn, to heal. Then Martin told a campfire story about the island's history. Of the old civil war prison hidden in there, and the starving confederate soldiers who resorted to cannibalism to stay alive. Everyone thought it was funny. They even laughed when Martin pretended to be dragged off into the woods.

    Any additional comments?

    Love that Lester called Georgia "Georgia girl" lol
