Three months have passed since the events of The Wrong Woman. Saskia is now working part-time with Jaiden, who is struggling to hide her feelings for her new friend and coworker. Saskia thought Jaiden was flirting with her when she invited her to work "undercover", and she's frustrated that their private investigations have never wandered even remotely close to the erotic. Neither Jaiden nor Saskia have had much luck with love. But when they finally kiss, it feels different...passionate...and unconditional.

This is a wonderful sequel. Her characters and story are well developed and you care to learn more about them. Her stories are not the typical arc of romance novels. I would highly recommend this book.

Brains, guts, and ruthless ambition should be enough for a woman to come out on top in any fight. Except when the battle is over love, all bets are off. Cain Casey was groomed from birth to take the reins of the Casey family enterprises, which just happens to be one of the major crime organizations in New Orleans. Surviving by never turning away from a fight and knowing how to win at all costs, Cain is as careful with her heart as she is with her business - until she meets Emma Verde.

The story was refreshing in the sense it wasn't the typical lesbian romance arc of misunderstandings and then a happy ending. Think of a lesbian Irish godfather theme in New Orleans with a child custody twist. There are some really cheesy moments where you'll roll your eyes but it's a good story and worth the listen.

The narration was a huge turn off. Unfortunately the voice and the story did not connect. It was too high pitched and some of the characters came off childlike. In my opinion this probably caused a lot of folks to turn off listening, which is sad for the author.

Leslie Harris's visit to her upstate New York lakeside family home after a decade of triumphs and disappointment resembles a nightmare more than the quiet vacation she'd hoped for. The unexpected appearance of much-changed town girl, Devon Weber, with whom Leslie shares a secret that haunts them both, rekindles an old heart ache - and reminds Leslie of just why she left.

In 1906, George Soper of the New York Department of Health, was asked to conduct a private investigation of an unusual typhoid outbreak in Oyster Bay New York. This fascinating look into medical detective work forms the backbone of Relentless: The Search for Typhoid Mary. At the same time, Mary Mallon - Typhoid Mary, was leading a life she had built starting as a 15-year-old Irish immigrant as a successful cook for New York's wealthy, powerful and important families.

The narration of the story was excellent. Really astonishing how many times wwII could've been prevented but a sociopath leader could manipulate the entire world out of fear. How so many were led to follow this person and do heinous acts on other humans is terrifying. Also the bizarre relationships with Italy's Mussolini, Russia's Stalin and Japan.

Watergate forever changed American politics, and in light of the revelations about the NSA's wide­spread surveillance program, the scandal has taken on new significance. Yet remarkably, four decades after he was forced to resign, no one has told the full story of Nixon's involvement in Watergate.

After his December 2003 arrest, registered nurse Charlie Cullen was quickly dubbed "The Angel of Death" by the media. But Cullen was no mercy killer, nor was he a simple monster. He was a favorite son, husband, beloved father, best friend, and celebrated caregiver. Implicated in the deaths of as many as 300 patients, he was also perhaps the most prolific serial killer in American history.

I've listened to this book a few times. The story brings the light on so many issues from depression, oversights in administration and patient care. It's scary how a person like Charlie could float in a medical system being fired and hired while killing patients driven by his emotional peaks and valleys.

The narration was fantastic.

Pamela Wright will never forgive her sister for dying in the Afghanistan war or the army for Laura's death or anyone else for making it okay for Laura to go halfway around the world to fight for reasons Pam has never fathomed. Numb with grief, she buries her sister but not her rage. Among the mourners is Trish Tomlinson, who loved Laura long ago and has found the news of Laura's death sharply painful.

Wonderful character development of three women's lives intermingled through the years. For those who do not have any experience of family or friends in the military it opens a window into their perspective of life. The tension between characters is believable. The narration I thought was perfect for this story. Listened to it three times.
