    To everyone else, John F. Kennedy Jr. may have been American royalty, but to RoseMarie Terenzio, he was an entitled nuisance—and she wasn’t afraid to let him know it. RoseMarie was his personal assistant, his publicist, and one of his closest confidantes during the last five years of his life. In this, her first memoir, she bravely recounts her own fairy tale interrupted, describing the unlikely friendship between a blue-collar girl from the Bronx and John F. Kennedy Jr.

  • Someday, Someday, Maybe: A Novel

    From Lauren Graham, the beloved star of Gilmore Girls and Parenthood, comes a witty, charming, and hilariously relatable debut novel about a struggling young actress trying to get ahead - and keep it together - in New York City. It’s January 1995, and Franny Banks has just six months left of the three-year deadline she set for herself when she came to New York, dreaming of Broadway and doing "important" work. But all she has to show for her efforts so far is a part in an ad for ugly Christmas sweaters, and a gig waiting tables at a comedy club....

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Very funny fun story with a lot of good life lessons thrown in. I really appreciate the fact that it wasn't trashy either. Not filled with bad language and tacky sex scenes. It was actually a lot deeper than that but light hearted at the same time. Not every writer can combine the two well.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Someday, Someday, Maybe?

    When Frannie was working for the caterers and ran into an old college friend. Who hasn't had a moment like that.


    What about Lauren Graham’s performance did you like?

    Everything


    If you could take any character from Someday, Someday, Maybe out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I would want to have dinner upstairs at the Chinese restaurant with Frannie, Dan and Jane.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait to see if there will be more Lauren Graham novels. Very enjoyable.

    Garrison Keillor's latest book is about the wedding of a girl named Dede Ingebretson, who comes home from California with a guy named Brent. Dede has made a fortune in veterinary aromatherapy; Brent bears a strong resemblance to a man wanted for extortion who's pictured on a poster in the town's post office. Then there's the memorial service for Dede's aunt Evelyn, who led a footloose and adventurous life after the death of her husband 17 years previously.

    Where does Pontoon rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the top ten


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Evelyn. I like how she didnt let her age stop her from persuing her true self.


    Have you listened to any of Garrison Keillor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. They are all good performances because the author is the performer and that brings the characters to life in the way that they are intended


    If you could take any character from Pontoon out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Evelyn. Interesting conversation

    From a top-secret government laboratory come two genetically altered life forms. One is a magnificent dog of astonishing intelligence. The other, a hybrid monster of a brutally violent nature. And both are on the loose....

    Would you try another book from Dean Koontz and/or J. Charles?

    From Dean Koontz yes, J. Charles no


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    listening to Keith Szarabajka. Stephen Lang and David Aaron Baker narrate some of Dean Koontz books, I was disappointed in this narrator for his story. I have listened to him read Monster and it was fine but I could not connect to the characters as they didnt seem to be portrayed the way that Dean Koontz characters usually come across in other stories. I know they are all different characters but alot of them have the same mold and these just came across too dorky


    Could you see Watchers being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    I will be reading this story to see if I get a different feel from the characters
