In the summer of 1862, a group of young artists led by the passionate and talented Edward Radcliffe descends upon Birchwood Manor in rural Oxfordshire. Their plan: to spend a secluded summer month in a haze of inspiration and creativity. But by the time their stay is over, one woman has been shot dead while another has disappeared; a priceless heirloom is missing; and Edward Radcliffe’s life is in ruins. Over 150 years later, Elodie Winslow, a young archivist in London, uncovers a leather satchel containing two seemingly unrelated items.

This book ended all pf a sudden and left me completely confused. I read the other reviews to make sure I wasnt the only one who felt this way. Apparently the book downloaded out of order. I will try to load it again and see it it is better. But I already know the ending and the surprise.

I deleted it and downloaded it again. I just started it again and so far so good....it actually makes sense!

Divorced from his own wife and carrying on halfheartedly with another man's, saddled with a bum knee and friends who make enemies redundant, Sully now has one new problem to cope with: a long-estranged son who is in imminent danger of following in his father's footsteps. With its sly and uproarious humor and a heart that embraces humanity's follies as well as its triumphs, Nobody's Fool is storytelling at its most generous.

Ron McLarty was made to read this book. He made Sully loveable. This was a long book but I was sad when it ended. This is my favorite audio book so far!

To most people, Fiona Bristow seems to have an idyllic life — a quaint house on an island off Seattle’s coast, a thriving dog-training school, and a challenging volunteer job performing canine search and rescue. Not to mention her three intensely loyal Labs. But Fiona got to this point by surviving a nightmare.

I listen to books and podcasts at work and it helps to make my day go by faster.The reader made this book unbearable. She made the main character very unlikeable. I kept hoping the serial killer would just get her and put me out of my misery. I honestly couldn't finish this book and I tried twice.
