Presumption of guilt follows attorney Dani Trumbull's work with the Innocence project. This is book 2 in a series. This book is the second in a series of 4. The "cast" of the series is great with a variety of characters. I love the narrator!! Her voice is clear and she voices multiple accents well. I highly recommend the series!

I listened to this for about 10 minutes before I gave up. The narrator isn't the right voice for the character. The story is slow and not what I imagined it to be.

Lucy Wakefield is a seemingly ordinary woman who does something extraordinary in a desperate moment: She takes a baby girl from a shopping cart and raises her as her own. It's a secret she manages to keep for over two decades - from her daughter, the babysitter who helped raise her, family, coworkers, and friends. When Lucy's now-grown daughter, Mia, discovers the devastating truth of her origins, she is overwhelmed by confusion and anger and determines not to speak again to the mother who raised her.

What Was Mine is a story about Lucy, who spontaneously abducts a baby after experiencing hew own tragedy with a daughter. Eventually, Lucy writes a novel with a similar story and the birth mother uncovers the truth. The story is told in the ever-popular mode of he said she said chapter by chapter (though in this case it's she said she said). I fast forwarded the story because I found the storyline simplistic and boring.

Cherringham is a series of 3 short--2 hour--mysteries. It reminds me a little of Agatha Christie. It took me a little while to get into the first story as the cadence is slow, but I quickly fell in love with the narrator, who really makes you visualize the characters.

But someone cut her dreams short. Solving the mystery behind the murder isn’t Tracy’s only challenge. The detective is keeping a secret of her own: she’s pregnant.

For Mercy Kilpatrick, returning to rural Oregon has meant coming to terms with her roots. Raised as a prepper, Mercy is now relying on her survivalist instincts to defend her town from the people the law can’t reach. But this time, an investigation calling up a dark past for her and police chief Truman Daly may be hitting too close to home. A rainstorm has uncovered the remains of five people - a reprise of the distinctive slaughter of two families twenty years ago. Except the convicted killer is in prison. Is this the case of a sick copycat, or is the wrong man behind bars?

Oh, this book was so fun! Good read is propelled by a great narrator and witty writing. Author Duncan Whitehead has developed the main characters, 5 older women bonded by their lust for good looking men and dogs, so that you can amost see them walking their dogs in a hot Savannah park. The narrator voices each character distinctly. The story wraps up with a mystery--who killed ? OVerall really, really entertaining and a light look at aging.

Sin is a very amateurish novel. IT's a story about 2 young kids who decide to go camping and then find themselves in a cabin with very moralistic people. There's some supernatural drama. It has a weird and sily ending. The only redeeming thing about this book is the great narrator Joe Hempel, who voices all his characters so close to who they are.
