Abandoned by her mother at age seven, Alexandra Winslow takes solace in the mysteries she reads with her devoted father - and soon she is writing them herself, slowly graduating to dark, complex crime stories that reflect skill, imagination, and talent far beyond her years. After her father's untimely death, at 14 Alex is taken in by the nuns of a local convent, where she finds 26 mothers to take the place of the one she lost, and the time and encouragement to pursue her gift.

Did not have a well thought out ending kind of boring and unsatisfying. Book was short like the author got tired of writing and just quit. Good thing it was a daily deal.

Indy Savage is a former wild child (okay, maybe not so "former") and current used-bookstore owner. Lee Nightingale is a former bad boy and now runs a private investigation service. Toss together a quiet barista with a not-so-lawful side-business, a crazy Vietnam Vet, a pothead, a drag queen, family and friends who will not mind their own business, a few stun guns, and a bag of diamonds, and mix them all up with some shootings, a high-speed chase and car bombs exploding, then hang on for your first wild Rock Chick ride.

I usually like Kristen Ashley but this is not an adult book more for teenagers. The girl is supposed to be 30 but she acts like a 19 year old. Not that 19 year olds shouldn't act the way they do but at 30 get over it. Had some good plot twists but I just could not get past the way the heroine talked like a teenager. It did not seem realistic. If you are 19 you might really like it. I am not.

The story is a sojourn from young people working as fire fighters in the Montana woods to the other professions this leads them to. It is an epic from Montana to the war zone in Bosnia, Africa and South America and culminates in an epic love story that is very satisfying and fulfilling and as Evans does mixes it with sadness and happiness along the way. This story really touched me and I have listened to it several times since it came out.

Lots of twists and turns keep you interested, main character anti hero leads a band of ragtag characters on a chase across the west with style and flash. The action would make a good movie and the writing makes it feel like it is a movie. What else could you want if you are a western fan?

No one who roamed the steep green mountains and red-rock canyons of Utah Territory was safe from El Cascabel and his renegade warriors - not Janna Wayland, not the wild stallion Lucifer - not even Ty MacKenzie, the stranger who had come for the stallion, and stayed to capture Janna's heart. Now all three must join forces and make their escape, or die trying.

This is fun and rousing. It was a good enough story that started out with a bang , I could not stop listening until it was over. And the Heroine saves the hero, this is a nice change from the Duke saves the day stories. But it IS still one of those.... If you like that you will like this.
