Lita Mendez was a thorn in the LAPD's side. An aggressive police critic and gang activist, she’d filed countless complaints against the department. So when she's found dead in her home, Detective Scully and his partner Hitchens fear the worst: that there's a killer in their ranks. Outside the crime scene, Nixon Nash and his television crew have set up shop. Nash is the charismatic host of a hit reality show called "Vigilante TV," dedicated to beating the cops at their own game: solving murders before they can.

This was a fund read that held my interest. I would recommend this book for a light listening experience. Scott Brick is one of my favorite narrators.

Acclaimed musician and painter Stephen Tunney is also the author of Flan—a surprise hit that drew positive comparisons to William S. Burroughs’ Naked Lunch and Miguel de Cervantes’ Don Quixote. Sixteen-year-old Hieronymus Rexaphin has an amazing talent—he has the ability to see the fourth primary color, and therefore the unique future paths of time and matter.

For years, guitarist Quinn Porter has been on the road, chasing gig after gig, largely absent to his twice-ex-wife Belle and their odd, Guinness records-obsessed son. When the boy dies suddenly, Quinn seeks forgiveness for his paternal shortcomings by completing the requirements for one of his son's unfinished Boy Scout badges. For seven Saturdays Quinn does yard work for Ona Vitkus, the spry 104-year-old Lithuanian immigrant the boy had visited weekly.

Beautiful story. Excellent narration. I loved every moment spent listening. Sincere without being at all sappy.

On a night flight from London to Boston, Ted Severson meets the stunning and mysterious Lily Kintner. Sharing one too many martinis, the strangers begin to play a game of truth, revealing very intimate details about themselves. Ted talks about his marriage that's going stale and his wife, Miranda, who he's sure is cheating on him. Ted and his wife were a mismatch from the start - he the rich businessman, she the artistic free spirit - a contrast that once inflamed their passion but has now become a cliché.

Berry Knudson had a talent for disaster, but when she climbed a tree to rescue a kitten, she wasn't prepared for the scrumptious hunk undressing in a nearby window, or her dive downward that smashed Jake Sawyer's pizza and won his heart! But was there room in her chaotic schedule for a risk-taking inventor with dreams? She took classes, delivered pizzas, and cared for three eccentric old ladies she rescued from the train station. But Jake thrived on a challenge, and he could be very inventive.

...and that's probably an understatement. I thought I couldn't go wrong with Janet Evanovich for some light hearted amusement. I was wrong. There was nothing good about the story line or the writing. "Berry" was annoying and "Jake" was nauseating, a perfect example of the guy who doesn't understand that no means no.
The only fun characters (the old ladies) were completely under developed, almost as if they were a last minute idea.
Even the narration by CJ Critt (whom I usually like) was awful. Probably because she had such awful material to work with.

Poppy Wyatt has never felt luckier. She is about to marry her ideal man, Magnus Tavish, but in one afternoon her “happily ever after” begins to fall apart. Not only has she lost her engagement ring in a hotel fire drill but in the panic that follows, her phone is stolen. As she paces shakily around the lobby, she spots an abandoned phone in a trash can. Finders keepers! Now she can leave a number for the hotel to contact her when they find her ring. Perfect! Well, perfect except that the phone’s owner, businessman Sam Roxton, doesn’t agree.
