The year is 2008 and Samantha Kofer's career at a huge Wall Street law firm is on the fast track - until the recession hits and she gets downsized, furloughed, escorted out of the building. Samantha, though, is one of the "lucky" associates. She's offered an opportunity to work at a legal aid clinic for one year without pay, after which there would be a slim chance that she'd get her old job back. In a matter of days Samantha moves from Manhattan to Brady, Virginia, population 2,200, in the heart of Appalachia, a part of the world she has only read about.

What disappointed you about Gray Mountain?

Everything. No drama, weak female lead, voiced by a soft spoken female

Would you ever listen to anything by John Grisham again?

I have listened to all his courtroom books. I was ready to turn this off at chapter 3. I suffered through it's entirety for the simple reason I am loyal to John Grisham. I will not recommend this book to any one

How could the performance have been better?

to start with the book could have been written better

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

major disappointment.

Any additional comments?

John,
I will continue to spend my money on your books. Please bring back the excitement

Tonya has just received a phone call from Darla, an old school mate, asking her to come to a class reunion. Feeling guilty about leaving and never looking back Tonya decides to go. The reunion is all about catching up with old friends. One friend though, is quite upset with the different paths people chose after graduation. They feel it is their duty to keep the reputation of the class and school intact. Through the years they had done exactly that.

What would have made Class Reunion better?

being read by anyone other than the author

Would you be willing to try another book from Tammy Vreeland? Why or why not?

I have, she is good but does she really know that her reading style is well horrible. Tammy if your reading this I really don't mean to hurt your feelings but just do what you do best -write- and leave the reading to someone else. I just cannot afford to by another audible book from you if you are the author. Hmmm, I wonder how the last book ended- can't bring myself to listen to the end

What made the experience of listening to You're Next the most enjoyable?

I had this book for a while in my library. I tried on several occasions to get past the first two chapters and couldn't get into it. Finally, on my 3-4 attempt I plugged away- glad I did the story was enjoyable.

What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

Always like Scott Brick. Maybe he can call and we can chat!
