Barbara Gold, a retired CIA agent, is bored out of her skull in Cheerville, a small town in New England -until a man is poisoned during a book club meeting for seniors. Everyone thinks Lucien had a heart attack, but from his symptoms, Barbara knows someone has slipped poisoned into his cake or drink. Even though she is no longer undercover, Barbara feels as if she's only playing the part of a sweet grandmother, but this may just be her most useful cover yet. The clock ticks as she investigates who in the Cheerville Active Readers' Society would want Lucien dead.

l loved the reader's deadpan style of reading I thought it matched the character's laissez-faire retired pace of life. I look forward to continuing the series.

If You're In My Office, It's Already Too Late. James Sexton knows this. After dealing with over 1000 clients whose marriages have dissolved over everything from an ill-advised threesome with the nanny to the uneven division of carpool duties, he also knows all of the what- not-to-dos for couples who want to build - and consistently work to preserve - a lasting, fulfilling relationship. Described by former clients as a "courtroom gunslinger" and "the sociopath you want on your side", Sexton tells the unvarnished truth about relationships. These usually derive from dishonest communication.

I loved the book, filled with lots of war stories and I agree with James' professional assessment, honest and open communication between the partners is the foundation of a successful relationship. I think all my married friends who bemoan their marital circumstances should read this book --- no, they should listen to James read the book.

this is my third consecutive Allen Eskins audible book and I have to say that I now count him among my favorite authors. I am new to audible and his stories have been thoroughly engrossing and keeps you intrgued from the first paragraph to the very end. I loved how he had brought characters forth from his previous two books...this to me is rewarding because I always miss the characters in a great story once a book ends. as for the heaven may fall...oh my, this book kept me on edge in that "I can't put this down" sentiment, everytime I settled in to listen. I was very happy with this purchase and book.
