    "Very Entertaining"

    Very interesting and unpredictable. The author kept me wanting to see what was going to happen next.

    "I am so very disappointed"

    I waited all month to get my new credits in order to get this book. It was so boring I cried twice, because I wasted a valuable credit. I am so very disappointed, because I also read another book by the same author, so I thought this book might be just as good but it was not. I wish I could get my credit back. In one word this book was very BORING!

    "Narration sucked."

    It was so hard to listen to this book. Ms. Peele sounded like she swallowing and moistening her lips at the end of each sentence. It was so aggravating that after an hour I couldn't stand it anymore and just erased it. I will never buy another audiobook that she narrates.

    "Please... Keep Reading!"

    Overall, I liked the book. It started out a bit slow, and I felt like Jackie was a bit obsessive, but toward the middle and end, I found myself driving/walking a bit longer to hear more on my iPod.

    "A Meeting in the Ladies Room"

    OMG!!!! DO NOT GET THIS AUDIO. THE NARRATOR READS TOO SLOW, AND YOU CAN HEAR HER TAKING GULPS BETWEEN WORDS. I COULDN'T GET INTO THE STORY BECAUSE SHE SOUNDED LIKE SHE HAD A COLD, AND HAD GONE TO THE STORE TO GET A BIG GULP FOR HER READ!

    "Anita Diggs Rocks Hard!"

    I've listened to this story 3x's in 1 month; its just that good. Anita Diggs is an incredible writer who enjoys word play. There were several times when I thought I had a character nailed, only to discover just how wrong I was.

    The dialogue, wit and sarcasm relating to each person in the story was just too funny for words. Just imagine talking to one of your friends and what you'd say to them or even how you'd say it. Each conversation just sounded so real!

    I look forward to more books from Anita!!
