It's been over a decade since Nora left her hometown of Scupper Island, Maine, and very seldom looked back. She's carved out a successful life in Boston, where no one knows her as the awkward girl with the delinquent sister and the dad who left, but a not-as-dramatic-as-it-sounds brush with death has her taking stock of her life. Inspired to reconnect with her prickly mother and snarky teenage niece, Nora returns home for the summer, where she's forced to face the people she's spent the last ten years trying to avoid.

Would you consider the audio edition of Red Notice to be better than the print version?

The Narrator, Adam Grupper, did a fantastic job!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes...a lot of intrigue...Well written and narrated.

Any additional comments?

This really brings to light our current struggle with Russia. This shows that they are ruthless and a bunch of thugs!

Life as a ship's boy aboard HMS Dolphin is a dream come true for Jacky Faber. Gone are the days of scavenging for food and fighting for survival on the streets of 18th-century London.

And she will have to use every bit of her spirit, wit, and courage to keep the crew from discovering her secret.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Narrator...too childish

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Story line was good...but made the smart woman seem dumb

What didn’t you like about January LaVoy’s performance?

Should read children's books

Do you think Accused needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Not unless they elevate the intelligence of Judy...a lawyer writing Jr. High notes about the clients...give me a break!

An innocent man is about to be executed. Only a guilty man can save him. Travis Boyette is such a man. In 1998, in the small East Texas city of Sloan, he abducted, raped, and strangled a popular high-school cheerleader. He buried her body so that it would never be found, then watched in amazement as police and prosecutors arrested and convicted Donté Drumm, a local football star, and marched him off to death row.

The first 3/4ths of this book was read like a manuscript from a court case...needed more dialog!
