It has been two years since the death of Merritt Heyward's husband, Cal, when she receives unexpected news - Cal's family home in Beaufort, South Carolina, bequeathed by Cal's reclusive grandmother, now belongs to Merritt. Charting the course of an uncertain life - and feeling guilt from her husband's tragic death - Merritt travels from her home in Maine to Beaufort, where the secrets of Cal's unspoken-of past reside among the pluff mud and jasmine of the ancestral Heyward home on the Bluff.

When I first chose this book, I wasn't sure what to think, but Karen did not disappoint. This book made you smile, cry & laugh. I did not want to stop listening & I liked the narrator, she really brought it to life.

With 12 hellhounds after her, pregnant Charley Davidson takes refuge at the only place she thinks they can't get to her: the grounds of an abandoned convent. But after months of being cooped up there, Charley is ready to pop. Both metaphorically and literally, since she is now roughly the size of a beached whale. Fortunately a new case has captured her attention, one that involves a murder on the very grounds the team has taken shelter upon.

Every desperate housewife wants an alias. Donna Stone has one - and it happens to be government-sanctioned. But Donna earned it the hard way: Her husband was killed the day she delivered their third child. To avenge her husband's murder, Donna leads a secret life as an assassin. But espionage makes for strange bedfellows, and brings new meaning to that old adage, "Honey, I'm home...."

I really enjoyed this audio book. Great characters, Donna and Jack have great chemistry, this is great thriller, humor and some dark comedy. I like the idea of a housewife assassin, she's a mom who would kill for her kids or the people she loves literally, but she only kills bad guys and usually it's in self defense. The book was well written, keeps you wanting more. I hope her other books in this series are made into audiobooks, because it's easier listening to a book while driving or working around the house, versus sitting down to read. I also enjoyed the narrator for this book.

This story had a good ending, but I think it was a better advertisement for Louisiana for the food and the scenery, more than an actual story line. The narrator was good though. I gave it 3 stars overall for the narrator, otherwise I would have given it 2.

Most people can relax by an idyllic riverside without fishing a dead body out of the water; Bree MacGowan is not most people. And as luck would have it, it's not just any old corpse she's tripped over this time. It's the late wife of Senator R. Carl Wallace, a paragon of upstanding American citizenship to anyone who looks...unless they look too closely. Which is, of course, exactly what Bree does, and what she finds is definitely more trouble than she bargained for.

Kat Porter is a consummate romantic, eager for her chance to find love and commitment. But after her boyfriend of four years, Marc, begins to grow apathetic and sends her calls straight to voicemail one too many times, Kat finally musters the courage to confront her so-called sweetheart, who seems more interested in dodging her than courting her. Though she's no fan of ultimatums, Kat is at the end of her considerable wits, and lobs a massive one his way, completely confident that he'll make the right decision.
