As New Orleans recovers from Hurricane Katrina, Detective Sept Savoie recovers from a gunshot wound with the help of her new love Keegan Blanchard. As the city returns to normal, so does the crime rate. Sept’s first case back on the job is a strangely ritualistic killing, which quickly escalates into serial murder. As the bodies start to pile up, the last thing Sept needs is the city’s newest celebrity crime writer, Nicole Voles, poking into the case looking for information for a new bestseller, especially when Nicole appears just as interested in Keegan as she is in murder.

Susanne Wolff isn't thrilled when her mother sends her all the way across the country to Freiburg to save her uncle's stationery store from bankruptcy. Freiburg is too provincial for her taste, and besides, pen and paper are outdated anyway. Anja Lamm, Paper Love's only full-time employee, takes an instant dislike to the arrogant, digital-loving snob who's supposed to be her temporary boss. But thanks to a meddling cat, a business trip to a stationery fair, and an armada of origami boats, Anja soon starts to see beneath Susanne's aloof exterior.

Amazing writing and incredible research. The narrator was simply amazing. I cannot say enough about how well written this book is. I of course want the story to continue and to see if happiness for Mary was ever reached. I cannot wait to listen to your next piece of work.

Jeanie Brooks is a small town history teacher who sometimes looks before she leaps, but when she books a last minute river cruise for lesbian singles, she knows she'll have no regrets. Eleanor Fielding is an actuarial accountant from Manhattan, and an expert at assessing risk from every angle. Analytical and reserved, the only thing worse than spending the summer floating around with a gaggle of desperate single women is the prospect of her sister nagging her for all eternity if she refuses to go.

Like the premise of the book and thought it was very cute. my only thought would be the narrator. I live Stephanie's voice and she reads well but I could not tell the characters apart. They sounded the same, otherwise I really enjoy the narrator.

Left with scraps from several broken relationships, carpenter Avery Greene builds herself a safe and steady life in upstate New York. No love. No loss. No problem. But when she makes a jarring discovery in her grandmother's attic, it cracks her stable life at its vulnerable foundation. In search of a permanent fix, Avery finds herself at the Sea Springs Inn, a bed and breakfast in the Outer Banks - where rip currents roll, sand dunes shift, and her strikingly gorgeous hostess throws her plans completely off course.

Have you ever passed an accident on the road that is just horrible and you know you shouldn't look but can't help yourself? I think that applies to the audible version of this book. It truly was a train wreck but I could walk away from it. The narrator has a sexy voice and it is appealing but all female characters sounded alike and if there were a heated part if the book with yelling the narrator still read in her low sexy voice. like I said I could not stop reading it. I felt really bad for the warden, she did not have to be the bad person and. the writer should have let her find love in spite of what she said on the stand. I really did not like that part at all. I would recommend this book to others and I would read it with an open mind.

Kate is a rapidly rising star of the trauma therapy world - London based, shy, uptight, and with an air of aloofness that masks a deep sense of insecurity. When she has to relocate her "Traumatology for the 21st Century" conference to Horton Hill "Deluxe" Hotel and Conference Centre in the heart of industrial West Yorkshire, she is understandably horrified by the state of the place.
