On their first date back in law school, Natalie and Will Clarke bonded over drinks, dinner, and whether they could get away with murder. Now married, they’ll put the latter to the test when an unchecked danger in their community places their son in jeopardy. Working as a criminal defense attorney, Nat refuses to rely on the broken legal system to keep her family safe. She knows that if you want justice...you have to get it yourself.

This is easily one of the best books I have ever listened to. I'm glad that Bea suggested it for my book club. I immediately got the next book by this author. I hope it's just as good.

Army veteran Sheriff Megan Holloway has a lot on her mind: a dog with a belly full of smuggled diamonds, a terrified woman hiding at the Bailey’s Boarding House, and a mafioso who is likely connected to both. What's that city crook doing in her town, anyway? She saw Aaron, the man in her life, flirting with another woman. Add to that, she relived her personal nightmare of the war in Afghanistan, again. Calling in the proper government agencies, Megan manipulates them, keeping control of the investigation in the background. Fortunately, she has an ace-in-the-hole the Feds don't.

This might be a good story but I can't get passed the narrator. His voice droned on and on and was simply annoying. The lead character is a woman. Why couldn't a woman be used for the narration? I returned it.

When a Dutch art dealer hides the stock from his gallery - rather than turn it over to his Nazi blackmailer - he pays with his life, leaving a treasure trove of modern masterpieces buried somewhere in Amsterdam, presumably lost forever. That is, until American art history student Zelda Richardson sticks her nose in.

I thought I was ready for level 2 but realized that I needed a refresher course. Level 1 is perfect. I went back to the beginning to fill in the gaps and get ready for level 2. I'm pleased with this program. It was recommended by a friend of mine (Beatrice) and I'm happy I listened to her. I recommend this to anyone who learning Spanish.

Pen has just received an extremely rare collection of Edgar Allan Poe's complete works. Rumor has it a secret code, trapped within the books' leather-bound pages leads, to buried treasure. Well, it looks like they got the buried part right because, as Pen sells off the valuable volumes, everyone who buys - dies. Once these books go missing from their owners' cold hands, Pen will need resident ghost and hard-boiled P.I. Jack Shepard to help crack the case. The police are skeptical that the deaths involved foul play - so it's up to them to unravel these shocking endings.

The mystery is pretty good, but, I. don't really care for treasure hunts. I should have read the book description. I did enjoy the mystery from Jack's case file.

This is an average cozy mystery. The characters are stereotypical and the plot is predictable. The narrator is pretty good.

This is a pretty good book. The characters are engaging and the pacing of the story is fast. It's a short, quick, enjoyable, cozy mystery. I like the narrator. He did a good job giving the different characters a separate voice. I'll get the next book in this series.
