After a long and eventful life, Allan Karlsson ends up in a nursing home, believing it to be his last stop. The only problem is that he's still in good health, and in one day, he turns 100. A big celebration is in the works, but Allan really isn't interested (and he'd like a bit more control over his vodka consumption). So he decides to escape. He climbs out the window in his slippers and embarks on a hilarious and entirely unexpected journey, involving, among other surprises, a suitcase stuffed with cash.

This is the second book by Ledford that I have listened to and this was as good, no...better than the first. She is a great writer who keeps you constantly waiting for more. I just wish she had more books.

The narrator, Christina Cox, did a fabulous job. It's easy to tell she is a professional.

What does a man drugged and slashed to death by an unknown assailant have to do with a woman felled by a fatal heart attack after learning her bank account had been plundered? The cases seem as different as their scenarios - late night in a tavern parking lot and early the next morning inside a bank. But a troubling theory soon unites them: Was the first crime's murder victim the second crime's mastermind?

Faith Greene decides to have her breasts enlarged with silicone implants. It is a mistake she will not live to regret. On December 10, 1990, popular TV host, Connie Chung, interviews several women with severe, debilitating diseases they claim are the direct result of silicone breast implants. Two medical experts on the panel confirm their claims. Shortly after the program airs, the lawsuits begin. First as a trickle, and then as a torrent. And then the brutal murders begin.

If you like medical mysteries, (or any mysteries) this is a must read. Clever subject matter, well-written, and keeps you on your toes. Just when you think you know who did it, it takes another turn. Michael Orenstein did an excellent job narrating the story as well. I look forward to the next novel.

In the autumn of 1558, church bells across England ring out the joyous news that Elizabeth I is the new queen. One woman hears the tidings with utter dread. Amy Dudley, wife of Sir Robert, knows that the bells she hears will summon her husband once more to power, intrigue, and a passionate love affair. Philippa Gregory paints a picture of a country on the brink of greatness, a young woman grasping at her power, a young man whose ambition is greater than his means, and the wife who cannot forgive them.

An arrogant duke does the unthinkable - he falls in love with his mistress.... She raced onto the green, desperate to stop a duel. In the mêlée, Jocelyn Dudley, Duke of Tresham, was shot. To his astonishment, Tresham found himself hiring the servant as his nurse. Jane Ingleby was far too bold for her own good. Her blue eyes were the sort a man could drown in - were it not for her impudence. She questioned his every move, breached his secrets, touched his soul. When he offered to set her up in his London town house, love was the last thing on his mind.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed this book even though I'm not really into romance novels. It helped that it was written in a different era. So if you like romance novels set in historical times, you'll enjoy this. Well written.
