When 28-year-old Lexi Smart wakes up in a London hospital, she's in for a big surprise: Her teeth are perfect. Her body is toned. Her handbag is Vuitton. Having survived a car accident - in a Mercedes no less - Lexi has lost a big chunk of her memory, three years to be exact, and she's about to find out just how much things have changed.

The story was very similar to any other "amnesia" story, but I enjoy that kind of thing. There were far too many "f words" for my liking, like loads, but I ignored it. The plot was not too predictable, so that was nice.
The narrator was decent, but here "male" voices were weird. There wasn't always the right emotion into opinion, but it wasn't unbearable. I still listened to the whole thing.

Jen Dixon is not your typical Kansas City kindergarten class mom - or mom in general. Jen already has two college-age daughters by two different (probably) musicians, and it's her second time around the class mom block with five-year-old Max - this time with a husband and father by her side. Though her best friend and PTA president sees her as the "wisest" candidate for the job (or oldest), not all of the other parents agree.

This book was a wild ride. It was a fun listen, but there were too many random swear words that were totally unnecessary. It deals with some adult content, so don't listen around kids unless you want to explain a few things. Overall, it was a decent book.

Before Sloane, Emily didn't go to parties, she barely talked to guys, and she didn't do anything crazy. Enter Sloane, social tornado and the best kind of best friend - someone who yanks you out of your shell. But right before what should have been an epic summer, Sloane just...disappears. No note. No calls. No texts. No Sloane. There's just a random to-do list with 13 bizarre tasks that Emily would never try. But what if they can lead her to Sloane? "Go Skinny Dipping?" Um...

The Narrator had a bit of a twang and it took me back to my time in Virginia. Instead of saying "didn't," she pronounced it as "di-unt." It's not a problem, it's just personal preference. It bugged me at first, but I got used to it. The story was alright, but I sometimes got confused when there was a flashback and forgot what was going on. I was kind of disappointed with the ending, but it made sense.

Imagine that your husband wrote you a letter, to be opened after his death. Imagine, too, that the letter contains his deepest, darkest secret - something with the potential to destroy not just the life you built together, but the lives of others as well. Imagine, then, that you stumble across that letter while your husband is still very much alive....

If you don't mind the random mentioning of sex, this book was great. The actual secret didn't come soon enough in my opinion. There are some rather random swear words that we could have done without, but it's not too bad.
