When Arlene Fleet heads up north for college, she makes three promises to God: She will stop fornicating with every boy who crosses her path; never tell another lie; and never, ever go back to the "fourth rack of hell", her hometown of Possett, Alabama. All she wants from Him is one little miracle: make sure the body is never found.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I'm not a writer. This was a bland book.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The voice was annoying.

Do you think Gods in Alabama needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No. Not at all

Curiosity just might be the death of Mrs. Murphy - and her human companion, Mary Minor "Harry" Haristeen. Small towns are like families: Everyone lives very close together. . .and everyone keeps secrets. Crozet, Virginia, is a typical small town - until its secrets explode into murder. Crozet's thirty-something post-mistress, Mary Minor "Harry" Haristeen, has a tiger cat (Mrs. Murphy) and a Welsh Corgi (Tucker), a pending divorce, and a bad habit of reading postcards not addressed to her.

What did you like best about Wish You Were Here? What did you like least?

This book is easy to listen so if one is distracted for a moment, one doesn't lose the plot.However, thinking and talking animals are not my thing.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Kate Forbes?

Narration was decent.

Nate Overbay, a former soldier suffering from PTSD and ALS, goes to an 11th-floor bank and climbs out the bathroom window onto the ledge, ready to end it all. But as he’s steeling himself to jump, a crew of gunmen bursts into the bank and begins viciously shooting employees and customers. With nothing to lose, Nate climbs back inside, confronts the robbers, and with his military training, starts taking them out, one by one. The last man standing leaves Nate with a cryptic warning: “He will make you pay in ways you can’t imagine.” Soon enough, Nate learns what this means.

Where does The Survivor rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I know a book is goos when I don't want to stop my walk so I can keep listening. This book did the trick.
