    What do you do when you fall through the loopholes in the system and all you have to rely on are your own wits? Lois and Sophie have scrambled and saved for years, planning for their retirement in Florida. But now they've lost it all, and Lois' sniper training from her long-ago service as an Army nurse leads to a desperate career choice. When Detective Morgan Holiday is assigned to investigate a spate of sniper killings, it's just one more stress point in her already overburdened life.

    Harper Lee’s Pulitzer prize-winning masterwork of honor and injustice in the deep south - and the heroism of one man in the face of blind and violent hatred, available now for the first time as a digital audiobook. One of the best-loved stories of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has been translated into more than 40 languages, sold more than 30 million copies worldwide, served as the basis for an enormously popular motion picture, and was voted one of the best novels of the 20th century by librarians across the country.

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

    Having read it many times over the years, I thought I had seen it from every angle. Hearing Sissie Spacek narrate just brought it to a whole higher level.

    Twenty-eight-year-old Brooklyn Campbell is having a bad day. A speeding ticket, a towed car, and a broken heel are all working against her laid-back vibe. To top it all off, her birth mother, whom she's never met, has requested contact. The only bright spot is an impromptu date with a beautiful and mysterious brunette. Jessica Lennox is what you would call a high-powered executive. She's the head of a multimillion-dollar advertising firm in New York City, and it didn't happen by accident.

    Over the past 18 months, Syd, Maddie, and little Henry have become a family, and things are going surprisingly well for most of Jericho's residents...if you don't count the devastating storm that whips through town. In the weeks and months to come, Syd, Maddie, and all of Jericho are forced to pick up the pieces and rebuild their homes, their lives, and their town.

    Would you listen to How Sweet It Is again? Why?

    Yes, I would. I liked the characters and the story, in parts long winded, was a good story dealing with love and loss.


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

    I liked her as narrator. Her voice was perfect for the characters.

    Madison Lansford and Shannon Fletcher met when they were 10 years old. Madison - daughter of wealthy parents and Shannon, daughter of their live-in maid and cook - became fast friends, yet both knew their place in life. There was never a doubt that they would become lovers... there was also never a doubt that Madison would marry and maintain her social standing in the community. Little by little, they grew apart, their love affair ending with Madison's marriage and pregnancy.

    When you're the president's daughter and the closest thing the country has to a first lady, your life is never really your own. When you're the woman charged to guard the first daughter, and you also happen to be her lover, every moment of every day is filled with challenges - and a mistake could cost you everything.

    Story

    Can Radclyffe not remember the character's names? I am so sick of hearing "her lover" or "my lover," over and over rather the names. Names are a good thing for a reason and that is so it is not like reading some trashy soft core porn. I wanted to like this story. I've listened to 1-4 hoping the characters would get some substance but that has yet to happen. Cam is almost as much of a whiner as Blair but Blair isn't supposed to a strong butch. I prefer the secondary characters as they are not as annoying as Cam and Blair.

    I am still trying to figure out how Cam and Blair fell in love. When they met, Cam was using an escort and Blair had indiscriminate sex at the drop of a hat. Both knew yet that wasn't enough to make either of them think perhaps neither would be a great catch. By book 4 they still to me have no reason to be so head over heels. They have spent minimal time together. It's just not realistic that they would fall in love.

    There is a lot of sex. If I cared nothing about a story then this book would be ideal. I do care though about the story. This one was disappointing.

    >Goldy Schulz knows her food is to die for, but she never expects one of her best friends to actually keel over when she's leaving a birthday party Goldy has catered. At first, everyone assumes that all the fun and excitement of the party, not to mention the rich fare, did her in. But what looks like a coronary turns out to be a generous serving of cold-blooded murder. And the clever culprit is just getting cooking. When a colleague - a woman who resembles Goldy - is stabbed, and Goldy is attacked outside her house, it becomes clear that the popular caterer is the main course on a killer menu.

    Glad that Goldy is back but the premise of her having so much involvement in a police investigation makes the whole story unrealistic for me. The story itself was entertaining and I was looking for entertainment. Love Barbara Rosenblat as the narrator.

    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.

    Story

    This book is one that got it right all around. The story was exceptional and gave me a glimpse into a time I didn't live. My mother was the daughter of a housekeeper and this was her reality. I'm happy to have a better understanding.

    Most audiobooks are hit or miss with the narrators and this one hit it in all areas. The voices and accents throughout the book made me want to keep listening. This is definitely one of my all time favorites

    Everything can change in a heartbeat.Hunter Roswell thought she had left her past behind. But her carefully structured world starts to fall apart when a serial killer connected to her past emerges from the shadows and begins stalking her. Already responsible for the deaths of five women, the killer now has Hunter firmly in his sights. And he’s picked a target date - the night of October’s full moon - also known as the blood moon or hunter’s moon.

    I too was enticed by the beginning on the story but it quickly became mundane. Hunter was a character that I felt could have been developed into so much more. Sara was flat. Both characters were like able but neither made you want to go the extra mile. The pace of the romance was unrealistic and the backstory, felt contrived. I would give the author another shot because the premise of the book was good.
