Where does Psych rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Have not been at the audiobook market for very long, but after I read (listened to) PSYCH, I checked out some NLP and while the people who use NLP are not murderers, they do control minds. I read other books by JTTwerell, but this is the first audiobook and it is outstanding. I found myself liking Dr. Walker, even though she is not a good person. If you love mystery and thrillers, this is the one to add to your library.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Loved Dr. Walker (which says there is something wrong with me) and identified with Detective Joe Stanton. Walkers ability to weave her spell is fantastic.

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

He has a good reading skill and brings some sense of drama to the story.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Made me very worried about my next visit to my therapist!!!

Any additional comments?

I love Twerell’s writing and now his Audiobook opens a new world. Look forward to more

Where does Catch and Release rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It is in my top 10.

What other book might you compare Catch and Release to and why?

A cross between Lee Cross and James Paterson with a romantic angle. About the time you think you know what will happen the story takes a sharp turn in another direction.

Which scene was your favorite?

The main character, Steve, is a psychologist with a great sense of humor. His new friend Jennifer aka “J” is a strong willed woman with a crazy life. In one scene she is caught up in a shoot out in which Steve has to drive to her rescue. His trip is through the wood where he destroys his Hertz rental car. That scene and the new chapter were great.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Not all vacations are created equal.

Any additional comments?

A friend told me about the book and when I found it on audio I used my credits to try it out. Unfortunately I started late in the evening and couldn’t put it down until very late. It was worth the loss of sleep. I am not a huge “romance” fan, but the interaction between Steve and Jennifer was beautiful, especially with Steve’s wit and humor. Highly recommend for mystery and thriller fans.

Couldn’t stop listening - lost a night of sleep!

Would you listen to Signal 30 again? Why?

Yes, loved the story. Able to visualize the characters and have a movie in my head. Twerell is a good story teller even if he is not a professional narrator. I like it when the author reads the his/her story as it seems more authentic.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Signal 30?

Can’t say or it would give away the story but the opening with the little girl was very real and caught me immediately.

Which character – as performed by James Twerell – was your favorite?

Shawn Murphy - a real depiction of a dedicated cop. Twerell must have been part of investigations sometime in his history.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Shawn found his wife and children gone

Any additional comments?

Twerell is a great writer but not professional narrator. Nevertheless, I did love his voice. Bought the book last night and stayed up way too late finishing it. It was worth the loss of sleep.
