Defense lawyer Andy Carpenter is reluctant to take on more cases. He’d rather spend his time working for his dog rescue organization. However, when a truck carrying more than 70 dogs from the South to the Northeast turns up with a murdered driver, Andy can’t help but get involved. Andy is eager to help the dogs, but it’s the man accused of murder who he has a problem defending. The accused happens to be his wife Laurie’s ex-fiance. Even though he acknowledges having argued with the victim, he swears that he is not a killer, and Andy has to admit he believes he's telling the truth.

Lo Blacklock, a journalist who writes for a travel magazine, has just been given the assignment of a lifetime: a week on a luxury cruise with only a handful of cabins. The sky is clear, the waters calm, and the veneered, select guests jovial as the exclusive cruise ship, the Aurora, begins her voyage in the picturesque North Sea. At first Lo's stay is nothing but pleasant: The cabins are plush, the dinner parties are sparkling, and the guests are elegant. But as the week wears on, frigid winds whip the deck, and gray skies fall.

I almost quit listening about 1/3 into the book. Then it really picked up, and by the last 20% I could not put it down. I am still not entirely clear about the resolution.

Bob Reynolds doesn't recognize the body in the creek, but he does recognize the danger of it. He's a newcomer to town, not entirely welcome and not entirely on good footing with the sheriff. So far he's kept his head down, mostly over the bar at the Crow's Nest. But he has interests other than drinking and spending his inheritance, including one that goes by the name Tammy Fay Smith and who may have caught the sheriff's eye as well.

I still do not know exactly who killed whom, except for Bob killing the sheriff's father. I did not like any of the characters enough to listen again. I may get the Kindle edition for clarification. I greatly enjoyed this author's first book, but am disappointed with this one. I hope he does not use the colostomy bag imagery in his next book.

Fabulous family saga of secrets held through two generations, set against the atmospheric background of the Lake District at Christmas. The year 1936 is drawing to a close. Winter grips Wetmoreland and causes a rare phenonmenon: The lakes freeze. For two local families, the Richardsons and the Grindleys, this will bring unexpected upheaval, as the frozen lake entices long-estranged siblings and children to return home for the holiday season.

What did you like best about The Frozen Lake? What did you like least?

Grandmama had no redeeming characteristics whatsoever. I should have paired the audible version with a hard copy to keep better track of who is related to whom and which group lives on which side of the lake.

Would you recommend The Frozen Lake to your friends? Why or why not?

I did recommend it to my sister.

Which character – as performed by Nicolette McKenzie – was your favorite?

Great Aunt Daphne.

Do you think The Frozen Lake needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No. I would have trouble remembering who everybody was. It was hard enough this time.

On the right side of the law. Sort of. Sebastian Rudd is not your typical street lawyer. He works out of a customized bulletproof van, complete with Wi-Fi, a bar, a small fridge, fine leather chairs, a hidden gun compartment, and a heavily armed driver. He has no firm, no partners, no associates, and only one employee: his driver, who's also his bodyguard, law clerk, confidant, and golf caddy.

All of the police are evil. The prosecutor is evil. The prosecutor and the judge are conveniently stupid. Every single person in the small hick town is stupid and trashy. Not a very credible story. Just a bunch of trite stereotypes.

What disappointed you about Yes Please?

Perhaps I have simply lost interest in the details of the lives of celebrities due to media over exposure. Amy Poehler is very funny and clever on Parks and Recreation, but I quickly lost interest in her book.

Would you ever listen to anything by Amy Poehler again?

No, but I look forward to her performances.
