enjoyed every moment. But narrator could not pronounce common words such as lovastatin. it was used several times and mispronounced every time. I'm not a medical professional, but it drove me crazy for a while. usually the author has the responsibility to correct the errors.
Over all,. Great Book. Well done. thanks Dr Palmer.

Bennie became real in this story. She was always the tough boss with a good heart, but now her personality is more complete. Her nurturing side came out as she defended an innocent boy and then she fell absolutely, deeply in love with a great guy. The trial drama was realistic and very intense. Loved the whole thing. Thank you Ms Scottolini

Blockbuster author Lisa Scottoline returns to the Rosato & Associates law firm with Betrayed, and maverick lawyer Judy Carrier takes the lead in a case that's more personal than ever. Judy has always championed the underdog, so when Iris, the housekeeper and best friend of Judy's beloved Aunt Barb, is found dead of an apparent heart attack, Judy begins to suspect foul play. The circumstances of the death leave Judy with more questions than answers, and never before has murder struck so close to home.

What can I say. Lisa Scotilini's all-girl firm is winning again. I couldn't help but love Judy Carrier as she pursues the bad guys while worrying about family and juggling responsibilities. Wish the next book was available now. Thanks Lisa

Sandi used to sleep with Jimmy, her man. Now she slept with her AK-47 with a detachable scope. Her Bible lay dusty in the cab of the truck. The nightmares of the past years haunted her. Sandi wasn't the fun, happy, busy girl she used to be. The Opposition took what she most held dear. She could still barely stomach the horrifying images in her head. This time, she was not going to let it go.

Excellent. Great story. Reader became Sandi and used her voice well for other characters. Story held my attention. It was touching and uplifting with a nicely woven plot. I can hardly wait to read the third in this trilogy.

This is not your average EMP story. Enemies of America use unique weapons that destroyed one-third of the US population in just a few short hours. Journey with Sandi, an average conservative mom, who clings to God and her guns to protect all those she loves. With little time to prepare, most families have only a week's supply of food. Preppers have a bunker. Sandi doesn't have a bunker. Adventure with this housewife as she struggles against danger, adversity, and lawlessness - to survive a new normal.

This story grabs your attention right away. The characters are interesting and well defined. I liked that fact that the main character is a forty-something woman who believes in herself and her family, yet is humble enough to ask her creator for help and wisdom. Hope the next book comes out on Audible soon.

Bob Johansson has just sold his software company and is looking forward to a life of leisure. There are places to go, books to read, and movies to watch. So it's a little unfair when he gets himself killed crossing the street. Bob wakes up a century later to find that corpsicles have been declared to be without rights, and he is now the property of the state. He has been uploaded into computer hardware and is slated to be the controlling AI in an interstellar probe looking for habitable planets.

Would you try another book from Dennis E. Taylor and/or Ray Porter?

No. Funny for a while. Then left wing foolishness applied. Just want to return this.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Ruined for me right away. Didn't get to end.
