    Andy Barber has been an assistant district attorney in his suburban Massachusetts county for more than 20 years. He is respected in his community, tenacious in the courtroom, and happy at home with his wife, Laurie, and son, Jacob. But when a shocking crime shatters their New England town, Andy is blindsided by what happens next: his 14-year-old son is charged with the murder of a fellow student.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It was a little boring and predictable.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    As a city girl, it's always good to read about the culture of small towns.


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

    The narrator was spectacular.


    Do you think Sharp Objects needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No follow-up book needed unless the pace picks up a little.


    Any additional comments?

    It wasn't a bad book, it was just okay. I'm glad to have listened to it but wasn't one of my favs. Now Gone Girl was OUTSTANDING!

    The cozy little town of Pine Deep buried the horrors of its past a long time ago. Thirty years have gone by since the darkness descended and the Black Harvest began, a time when a serial killer sheared a bloody swath through the quiet Pennsylvania village. The evil that once coursed through Pine Deep has been replaced by cheerful tourists getting ready to enjoy the country’s largest Halloween celebration in what is now called “The Spookiest Town in America.”

    What could Kendra Elliot have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    More suspense would have been great. It had a great storyline and many places to go with it but it just flopped.

    I used to murder people for money, but lately it’s become more of a survival technique. Once an assassin, always an assassin. So much for being plain old Gin Blanco. With every lowlife in Ashland gunning for me, I don’t need another problem, but a new one has come to town anyway. Salina might seem like a sweet Southern belle, but she’s really a dangerous enemy whose water elemental magic can go head-to-head with my own Ice and Stone power.

    I just love Gin especially when she says "sloppy, sloppy, sloppy" and "get dead or getting dead".


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

    Very creative with great characters and explosive personalities.

Since she was old enough to walk, Katy has shared Jake’s love of the outdoors, taking to hunting and fishing as quickly as other kids take to baseball or bike riding. As he packs the truck for a spring turkey hunt, he vows to savor the time with his little girl. But Jake’s hopes for an idyllic weekend are shattered when a band of drug dealers attempts to break into the Crosbys’ remote hunting camp. Desperate to protect his daughter, Jake makes a violent and gut-wrenching decision.

    Catherine has been enjoying the single life for long enough to know a good catch when she sees one. Gorgeous, charismatic, spontaneous – Lee seems almost too perfect to be true. And her friends clearly agree, as each in turn falls under his spell. But there is a darker side to Lee. His erratic, controlling and sometimes frightening behaviour means that Catherine is increasingly isolated. Driven into the darkest corner of her world, and trusting no one, she plans a meticulous escape.
