I love a good mystery thriller, but do not like graphic descriptions of violence. I wish audible would let a potential reader know the level of the violence in the book in the description.

Joseph Bridgeman - a reclusive insomniac with a weakness for The Beatles on vinyl - accidentally discovers he can time travel. With the help of Vinny, a local record shop owner, an old school friend, and Alexia Finch (his hypo-time-travel guru), Joe sets out to change the course of his life. He needs to get back to 1992, the year his world fell apart, the year his sister went missing. The only problem (apart from his clothes disappearing) is that the further back he goes the less time he gets to stay there. Can Joe master his new-found gift before time catches up with him?

Scott McKenzie's father killed his mother and himself. Scott vowed to do anything in his power to stop similar murders. He longed to be a police officer, but a tour in Vietnam in 1970 derailed that career. Two years later, wounded in body and soul, Scott died. He didn't go on to what was next, though. Instead, he woke up with a chance to live his life over and over until he got it right. Murderers will never see him coming. But, by using violence to save others, is he losing his own soul?

The Bird children have an idyllic childhood: a picture-book cottage in a country village, a warm, cosy kitchen filled with love and laughter, sun-drenched afternoons in a rambling garden. But one Easter weekend a tragedy strikes the Bird family that is so devastating it tears them apart. Many years later something will call them home, back to the house they grew up in - and to what really happened that Easter weekend all those years ago.

I loved Then She Was Gone, so when I saw this book I quickly bought it. It is as though it was written by a different author. I found the story line slow , all the characters unlikeable and I can't wait for the next 90 minutes of listening to be over so I can move on.

When Carly Sears, a young woman widowed by the Vietnam War, receives the news that her unborn baby girl has a heart defect, she is devastated. It is 1970, and she is told nothing can be done to help her child. But her brother-in-law, a physicist with a mysterious past, tells her that perhaps there is a way to save her baby. What he suggests is something that will shatter every preconceived notion Carly has. Something that will require a kind of strength and courage she never knew existed. Something that will mean an unimaginable leap of faith on Carly's part.

It’s been five years since Summer Marks was murdered in the woods. Everyone thinks Mia and Brynn killed their best friend. That driven by their obsession with a novel called The Way into Lovelorn the three girls had imagined themselves into the magical world where their fantasies became twisted, even deadly. The only thing is: They didn’t do it. On the anniversary of Summer’s death, a seemingly insignificant discovery resurrects the mystery and pulls Mia and Brynn back together again, and the girls must confront what really happened in the woods all those years ago.

Lauren Oliver is one of my favorite authors. However I feel this book fell short of her talent. I think that the story is very disjointed and not because it is told by several different characters and takes place in different timelines (then and now). In fact that is my favorite way of listening to a book (ever since Gone Girl changed the way a lot of books are written now) The story just did not flow and I find none of the characters are very likeable. I will not give up on Ms. Oliver, though I think I might wait to purchase her next book until I read what other reviewers are saying. #Disappointed #noflow #tagsgiving #Sweepstakes

It's been over a decade since Nora left her hometown of Scupper Island, Maine, and very seldom looked back. She's carved out a successful life in Boston, where no one knows her as the awkward girl with the delinquent sister and the dad who left, but a not-as-dramatic-as-it-sounds brush with death has her taking stock of her life. Inspired to reconnect with her prickly mother and snarky teenage niece, Nora returns home for the summer, where she's forced to face the people she's spent the last ten years trying to avoid.
