A mission gone horribly wrong. A vicious killer who will stop at nothing. Two women on the run for their very lives. After 9/11, an experimental branch of the US government has been tasked with the mission of proactively putting a stop to terrorism. They have sent a team to eliminate a financier responsible for funding the worst of these organizations. Everything is going according to plan. Until it's not. The team is ambushed, and when the mission is looking its darkest, it goes from bad to worse.

I really enjoyed Sharpshooter. I was almost envious of the friendship between Seven and Jenny. Note: Quite a bit of violence. Just giving you a heads up. Leslie McDonel does an excellent job with the narration.

Hayley Carpenter has always dreamed of being a famous screenwriter, but dreams don’t pay bills and LA living isn’t cheap. So when a temp position at a celebrity gossip magazine becomes available, she goes after it. Emerson Sterling has been acting since she was little, but a rough patch as a teenager has given her a bad rap in Hollywood. Just when she thinks her dream role can turn around the public’s image of her, a conflict with her co-star and America’s Sweetheart, Rachel Blanche, puts her on the front cover of every magazine, the villain once again.

I loved Media Darling. Great story. Loved Hayley and Emerson. I hate the fact that the media hounds them. Now I feel justified in not paying any attention to gossip shows or gossip rags. If people stopped supporting gossip writers and photographers. The world would be a better place. Lori Prince does an excellent job with the narration.

When it comes to finding dirt, Evan Reed is the best in the business. She’s a “dust-buster” - a paid operative hired by political campaigns to vet candidates for national office. She’s also a foulmouthed and cranky ex-Catholic - attempting to raise a 14-year-old daughter on her own. When she is hired to investigate the background of a squeaky-clean and charismatic junior senator who might just be the next president, the last thing she expects to uncover is a murder.

I loved Dust. I already knew the story by heart, having read it several times before. Christine Williams takes this novel to a whole new level. Loved Evan's character. Maybe Ann McMan could find another investigation for her? Hopefully? Excellent narration.

Tell is the riveting story of Major Margaret Witt’s dedicated and decorated military career as a frontline flight nurse, and of her love and devotion to her partner - now wife - Laurie Johnson. Tell captures the tension and drama of the politically charged legal battle that led to the congressional repeal of the controversial law and helped pave the way for a suite of landmark political and legal victories for gay rights.

Susanne Wolff isn't thrilled when her mother sends her all the way across the country to Freiburg to save her uncle's stationery store from bankruptcy. Freiburg is too provincial for her taste, and besides, pen and paper are outdated anyway. Anja Lamm, Paper Love's only full-time employee, takes an instant dislike to the arrogant, digital-loving snob who's supposed to be her temporary boss. But thanks to a meddling cat, a business trip to a stationery fair, and an armada of origami boats, Anja soon starts to see beneath Susanne's aloof exterior.

For lesbians in Provincetown, seductive Sable is more than just a bedroom voice on late-night radio. Through her talk show, Nightlight, she is a fun, anonymous friend and confidante, until one mysterious caller attracts her attention. Behind Sable’s “mask,” Murphy Callahan allows herself to enjoy the no-strings radio relationship - she’s mourned the death of her partner for three years - and ignores the growing attachment as their very public conversations push permissible limits.
