Sisters. Strangers. Survivors. More than twenty years ago, Claire and Lydia's teenaged sister Julia vanished without a trace. The two women have not spoken since, and now their lives could not be more different. Claire is the glamorous trophy wife of an Atlanta millionaire. Lydia, a single mother, dates an ex-con and struggles to make ends meet. But neither has recovered from the horror and heartbreak of their shared loss—a devastating wound that's cruelly ripped open when Claire's husband is killed.

This is my favorite book by Karin Slaughter. Her story presented and her characterization of events are extremely well researched and factual. I have had the pleasure of knowing crime investigators that describe similar situations. Heart full and well told! I have read this a few times, as well as listened to this reader half a dozen times. Great reader!

The man standing watch over Dr. Tina Jamison was an imposing, scarred figure. Even more frightening was what would happen when her kidnappers discovered they'd taken the wrong woman. Only she didn't realize this same guard was an undercover agent, or that Drew Lancaster left no fellow Elite Operations agent behind. Running handcuffed together through Texas, Drew vowed to protect Tina against all dangers. For a man who'd fought so many battles, he couldn't afford to lose this one. She'd need to follow his orders to stay alive.

The story about 3 women who meet on a trip and make a decision to change their lives together. Upon arriving in Maine, the gang finds out that things are all as they appear. Between whale watching excursions and a historic home, the story takes many turns. Loved this book. Great story and solid characters.

There are a lot of sub stories going on in this story. All women. Plots, by-lines, and settings. There is definitely a killer in the midst because people keep dying and being murdered. Overarching question is why and by who. The novel weaves through the various women, and attempts to determine who holds the key to murder.

It appears to be set in a classic olden day tale style, yet has modern day folksy happenings. The talk and lingo, a bit too hillbilly for Montana but a cute story. Setting should be more in West Virginia somewhere, not Montana. But it is a cute story. The little orphan Annie girls and the ex-FBI daddy work a low key general store in town. Story has a few good bylines woven in. This would make a great real life tale of a Little House on the Prairie neighbor, time period and style of writing.

Taming the Lyon

This book has an “Out of Africa” feel. The writer is able to move the listener to a location, as well as bring believable feeling of desire for romance in an otherwise undesirable place. Dr. Margaret Boynton leaves England on an unforgettable quest for an adventure, and she finds one in many ways. From romance, to medicine, to cannibals, this is a story not to be missed. The reader was great too.

Really enjoyed this story. To be loved by admirers, and choose based on family guidance is never an easy way to love. Writer researches time period very well.

Story itself was good. Took awhile to get into due to background information. The editing was not done on this book. You can hear the reader many times patch into and out with her signal “beep.” Odd.

Reader had good flow, as did the story. This was well written with many twist and turns.

An ending we don’t see coming between Christina and Steven. How can someone do such cruel things to someone they love? Love makes people do strange things. In this story we are captivated by Christina and her work. She had really worked for a career, seized early on by someone, she prevails not only professionally but personally too. Worth the listen. Reader was good, too.
