The Corsairs have been driven away but only temporarily. Jillybean knows they'll be back in even greater numbers, lusting for vengeance. Yet she is trapped on the hilltop surrounded by thousands of zombies, and worse, she is out of medicine and fast becoming dangerously unpredictable. Things spiral quickly out of control when she is charged with cold-blooded murder, barely escapes a fire that turns the hilltop and half the state to ash, and flees to a city that is being ravaged by a deadly disease

Another awesome book, with JillyBean . I love the little genius. This book has a different band of heroes, all as lovable as Peter’s other series. Can’t wait for the next book. I hope this series is a really long one.

He hopes to harness her genius for the benefit of the valley, but when the gamble fails he must send the only two people he can trust out into a dangerous world to gather more supplies.

With extraordinary access to the West Wing, Michael Wolff reveals what happened behind-the-scenes in the first nine months of the most controversial presidency of our time in Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House. Since Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States, the country—and the world—has witnessed a stormy, outrageous, and absolutely mesmerizing presidential term that reflects the volatility and fierceness of the man elected Commander-in-Chief.

I Loved this book. I could envision everyone kissing Trumps ass to get their agenda passed. Trump not taking the time to learn anything about the government. It bores him!Then on a daily basis he does something incredibly stupid, and Bannon having to explain to him how much trouble he’s in. It answered a lot of questions why everyone was fired or quit. It reminds me of Animal House This needs to be a movie. With actors from SNL

It's been three months since Amy escaped New Hope. Since she's seen Baby, or Kay, or Rice. And she's been surviving on her own, like she did before she was "rescued" and taken to what she thought was a safe haven. Then, in the midst of foraging for supplies, her former fellow Guardian's voice rings out in her earpiece. And in a desperate tone, Kay utters the four words Amy had hoped she would never hear: Dr. Reynolds has Baby.

Such a great series. I listen to it every year. I wish there were 20 books instead of six. I love Sarah’s sense of humor! She’ll have you laughing and crying. If you like Zombies, adventure, and a great group of survivors. This series is a page turner or if you’re listening ,don’t make any plans, until you’re done.

Great first book of the series, I want the next book? I guess I'll have to read it if I can find the time. I'm already reading Slow Burn because their series isn't in audio. Bummer because I'm an artist and paint for a living, I really use audible constantly, so whenever I find a good series I love it. Or now I'm bummed. I think from now on I am going to check and see if the whole series is recorded before I start!

Would you listen to Spying in High Heels again? Why?

Very funny, and very entertaining. The story was fast moving. I'm a painter and listen to books on tape every night and sometimes days. Sometimes I feel like getting into a long 40 hour book or sometimes I want a book like this. Upbeat,funny,and you don,t want to stop listening. After the first book, I had to get all six books. Definitely worth the credit

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

Caroline is great, I can't imagine anyone else doing a better.job. She has the characters down. From the girly,girls to the gay hairdresser. I really loved the narrator. In fact, I will be looking for more books read by Caroline.
