If your looking for some laughs, groans, snickers, giggles, and knee-slappers, this just may be the book for you. The authors has compiled quite a collection of Dad jokes and puns. The narrator obviously had quite a bit of fun while delivering his performance.

What if you could make a change to history that would eliminate the Spanish Inquisition, American slavery, World War II, global warming, and an egomaniacal US president who thought he was smart enough to drop nuclear bombs here and there without negative consequences? What if that change also made the United States and five billion people poof from existence? Would you do it?

Deadly Resentment is a nice short cozy mystery. Chloe, after being cleared of being a suspect, needs to find the murderer... her good friend is a suspect, but she knows that she couldn’t have possibly done it. The author did a nice job of throwing in a few twists and turns and tied up all the loose ends.

An informative book on stoicism. There is a brief discussion on the history of this philosophy, which was great. There were also real world examples that I think really tied everything together.

Leigh Adams did a really nice job with the narration. His voice is really smooth and easy to listen to. I would certainly listen to more of his narrations.

When Dorothy Thompson returns to Cherish, SC, to play piano for her brother’s wedding, memories and fear nearly paralyzes her fingers. If anyone she knew back in high school discovers her secret, the whispers will start. Fake. Fraud. Failure. It’s not as if she can blame God for her troubles. No, she did that all by herself. But, remembering His lessons, she’s fighting to get back on track. All she can do is pray the wedding vocalist—her brother’s friend Ryan, a rising opera star—won’t notice the way her hands shake. When Ryan Edwards sets foot inside a church for the first time in years, he’s no longer the pitiable kid from the poor side of town, but someone who’s made it on his own. Without God’s help—not that He ever cared about misfits like Ryan, anyway.
