Carla is an up and coming country music star when she boards a plane for Denver in the year 2014. After the plane crashes in the year 2064 she learns that nuclear war destroyed technology and unleashed a plague that devastated the female population. Even now, decades after the plague has dwindled to isolated outbreaks, women are precious commodities to be fought for, and Carla finds herself offered as the prize in a Bride Fight.

I enjoyed listening to the book and the narrator did a good job.

Carla and Trey were easy to like. I only wish there had been a little more conflict, either between Trey and Carla or from outside troublemakers, in the story to liven it up a bit.

A movie deal for the devil's autobiography slash romance? Priceless. Maybe I should choose George Clooney to play me in the movie.... No. Too gray. As much as I can't see anyone playing me but me, I have far more important issues on my agenda - like finding the woman who stole my soul. Well, not exactly stole.... I might have made the switch and taken hers, but the siren Elle Rinoa has my soul nonetheless. Maybe Brad Pitt would be a good Lucifer.... No. Too blond.

He aches for her when they are apart, and is insatiable when they are together. Yet as the years pass, Greg has begun to suspect that Fiona is a ninja. A ninja mom. A ninja wife. A ninja friend. After 14 years of marriage, Greg is trying not to panic.

Teddy, who is ironically enough a bear shifter, has finally found her mate. There's one big problem though. He doesn't like what he sees. Reece never imagined his chosen mate would be a woman with extra curves, but all it takes is one taste to realize the benefits and turn his world upside down. Their arguments are many, their lust for each other fiery, but while he's ready for the next step, Teddy keeps running. What will it take to win her trust and heart?

The author used just about as much plot line as a stereotypical porn movie. The book was more loosely woven together sex scenes than a novel with plot or character development. I looked around Pinterest while I listened. I’m pretty sure I didn’t miss anything while reading an article or two.

This was my book club suggestion for 2017. Everyone was pleased with the book. It was interesting to read a different perspective on women’s roles during war than is generally portrayed. It inspired me to research more about women spies starting with the U.S. Civil War and continuing through both world wars.

I like the Mary and Martha type conflict between the two sisters, even though I had a hard time liking Nina at first. (Not sure what that says about me!) Gradually, I came to appreciate both sisters. The ending is a little contrived, but I was willing to suspend belief since I liked the rest of the book.

An intimate portrait of a family and an epic tale of hope and struggle, Sing, Unburied, Sing journeys through Mississippi's past and present, examining the ugly truths at the heart of the American story and the power - and limitations - of family bonds.

Certainly this is a well written book. My dislike for the novel stems from the fact that no character has even a glimmer of hope or happiness. Even the remembered birthday cakes are presented from the perspective of the character’s current miseries. The world can certainly be an awful place, but in many bad situations there can still be a tiny ray of light. I’d even settle for a dandelion growing up through broken concrete.
