Psychologist Faith Corcoran is desperate to escape the stalker who's made her life a nightmare for the past year--desperate enough to run to the one place that has been her nightmare for far longer. Both boon and bane, her recent inheritance of her grandmother's old house in Cincinnati offers a sanctuary in which she can start her life anew but requires that she face dark memories that resonate to this day.

I listen to a new book everyday, I own hundreds, and Karen Rose is now my favorite author. I’ve listened to most of her books and have enjoyed all of them. All of her narrators have been great, but Hillary Huber is my favorite, she’s amazing and so is this book. Thank you Karen & Hillary

Al Franken, Giant of the Senate is a book about an unlikely campaign that had an even more improbable ending: the closest outcome in history and an unprecedented eight-month recount saga, which is pretty funny in retrospect. It's a book about what happens when the nation's foremost progressive satirist gets a chance to serve in the United States Senate and, defying the low expectations of the pundit class, actually turns out to be good at it.

I learned so much from this book, and I’m very sad the he’s not still in Washington, fighting the good fight. It’s a tremendous loss for our democracy!

Days after his murder, Chip grabbed his fiancé while she laid sleeping. "I'm not gone, I'm right here," he told her. "You can't see me, but I am here. I'll never leave you. I promise." When Lyn Ragan started hearing from her deceased lover, she thought she was losing her mind. Not only had the love of her life been ripped away, she was seeing dead people.

I love books like this, but this is almost painful to listen to. At first I thought it was just the narration, which is the worst I've heard out of more than a 100 audiobooks, but it's the way it's written. The main character has the maturity of a teenager, which combined with the narrator's 6th grade reading skill, I couldn't get past the second chapter. Very disappointed in this book!
