A mother’s love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity, it dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stand in its path. Amelia Bell is thrust into every mother’s worst nightmare. She has a child who is fatally ill and no one knows of a vaccine that will cure him. Her son was one of the first infected with the virus that changed life and the world as we know it. Her son transformed into a monster with a ravenous appetite for human flesh. Believing he will become healthier if she feeds him what he craves, she enlists her alter ego.

Mrs. Kim is an excellent story that kept me riveted from the beginning. While there are zombies in it, the main character is the mother of a boy who becomes infected with the disease that is turning people into zombies. The narration and audio production quality is excellent .

House flippers Jack and Juniper agree to lend and help prep their latest purchase - the Doctor's House, an old Victorian mansion - to act as the eerie setting for the town's Halloween bash. They're expecting to find missing floor boards and pesky bats, not the ghostly specter of the murdered doctor's wife. But when the head of the council is found stuffed in a trunk in the attic, it appears history is repeating.

Cara Snow is newly divorced, stuck working for a jerky boss at a pet boutique, and dreading her soon-to-be-empty nest with only her beloved corgi for company. Worse still, her ex just got engaged. Doesn’t she deserve some romance, too? Or, at least a date for the Fur Ball. She’s always enjoyed the annual pet rescue gala, but this year her ex will be there with his fiancée. Meanwhile, Cara hasn’t met anyone — other than the irresistible dogs at the boutique’s adoption events. Cara is shocked when her wish to fall for a man as easily as she does for those mutts summons Vincent. His velour track suit, paunchy belly, and tough-guy accent don't exactly fit her childhood image of a fairy godfather. Not exactly on top of his game, he admits to being twenty-five years late.

I am a dog lover ( I have 3) so any cover with a dog on it will attract my attention. But this book surprised me because the story went where I didn’t expect it would. I did not expect fairy godfather involvement. The story is excellent and , for me, very relatable. The narrator is awesome and managed different voices and different dialects very well.

As if he doesn't have enough to handle between running outlaws out of Cheyenne, keeping his brothers out of trouble, and avenging his father's death, Sheriff Sawyer McCade's meddling mother just dumped a mysterious mail-order bride on his doorstep. One woman can be more trouble than a band of renegades, and while this one has him all stirred up, he'd rather get to the bottom of the story she isn't telling. Rose Parker had it all - until a web of danger and deceit sends her running to Cheyenne posing as a mail-order bride. Escaping the evils of New York seems sensible until she meets the unsuspecting sheriff who didn't ask for her, has no intention of marrying her, and won't rest until he uncovers her secret and sends her back home.

Where does Sawyer's Rose rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I’m don’t usually listen to romances but Sawyer’s Rose is more than a romance. Good plot and twists that I did not see coming.

What other book might you compare Sawyer's Rose to and why?

Sawyer’s Rose reminds me of Louis L’Amour somewhat. Tough but hurting cowboy and an equally tough woman trying to make her way in the West.

Any additional comments?

Narrator was awesome. I don’t think there could be a better voice for a western. Honestly, he reminded me of San Elliott.

After a failed marriage, Kelly Winters moves to the strange Californian coastal town of Haven to join her younger brother, expecting nothing more than a quiet life, new beginnings, and perhaps a little love. Instead, she enters a world of magic and murder. Not only does she learn she's a witch and has a powerful destiny linked to her long-lost parents, but she soon discovers the quaint town is full of secrets, lies, and an underlying darkness.

Kelly Winters moves to Haven, California looking for a new start after her divorce. What she finds though, is a thousand years of family history that she knew nothing about.
Very good book. I listened to it in one sitting. Maybe would have liked a little bit more but as this is a first book in a series, I’m hoping the next books will be longer. Narration and production were both of high quality.

If you love Jack Reacher...it's time you met The Preacher, the one-eyed ex-priest and Vietnam vet turned professional gambler who wanders the country seeking redemption. The Preacher is playing the highest stakes poker game ever dealt. His opponents are mobsters, arms dealers, and terrorists. The jackpot is an atomic bomb. And if he loses, the entire city of Las Vegas will be dealt the Dead Man’s Hand. It's non-stop action and suspense featuring the most original hero in crime fiction.

Would you listen to The Preacher: Aces and Eights again? Why?

I definitely would. The story is intelligent and action packed.

Which character – as performed by Shawn Compton – was your favorite?

The Preacher . Shawn Compton does a great job with him and all the other characters. I can see the them clearly in my mind.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

This book is a little king to do that with but , if I had whole day I probably would do it.

Any additional comments?

This is the second book in a series. I haven’t listened to the first one and that’s not a problem. This stands alone. Definitely will go back and listen to the first

Is hip hop a dance, a music style, a dressing code, a whole cultural phenomenon - or all of these combined? What does "hip hop” mean, and where does it come from? Answer these and any other questions you may have about this genuine notion that has inspired an incredible number of people, from directors and poets to songwriters and performers - and find out what lies beneath these two small albeit worldwide famous words!
