Georgie Quinn and the filly Sweet Bells are an unbeatable team. When they win the Breeders' Cup Classic against colts, the world can't seem to get enough. Overnight, Georgie becomes the face of horse racing, and Sweet Bells becomes its queen. Although they're the morning line favorites, Georgie feels like she's barely keeping her head above water. Her parents' farm is a crumbling has-been, her jockey career consumes her time, Harris Armstrong won't forgive her for telling a lie that kept her family together.

Such a wonderful story ruined by a mediocre narrator... Her monotone droning, sleep inducing voice that stumbled across her words were irritating.

I have heard some bad narration but this takes the case. Very choppy and fake. Love the Cross series but I am greatly disappointed in the acting. Thank god the actors get better in later series.. I don't think I could stand this again.

Love this series however Cassandra Campbell is no Adriana Trigani when it comes to narration. She does the "country" accent too hard. It came off as a southern accent and not Appalachian accent. It goes to show .. if you are not from this area then you have no idea how the dialect sounds. Adriana has Fleeta down perfect. I would have rather listened to the narrator talking in her normal speaking voice then listening to this southern "put on". Other than that she does have a "easy to listen to" voice. Just the dialect makes me cringe like nails on a blackboard.

I have read the reviews but still I was curious..so I downloaded it and WWB. Personally I don't see what the big hoopla is. It's like comparing apples to oranges, Patterson has taken his readers on a different tangent which I find refreshing.. even though it may be far fetched.. it is still entertaining. Do you not go to a sci-fi movie thinking it is reality?
When one goes in with a negative attitude, one is unable to enjoy the story, and the ride it takes one on.

Milk Glass Moon, the third book in Adriana Trigiani's best-selling Big Stone Gap series, continues the life story of Ave Maria Mulligan MacChesney as she faces the challenges and changes of motherhood with her trademark humor and honesty. With twists as plentiful as those found on the roads of southwest Virginia, this story takes turns that will surprise and enthrall the listener.

Adriana Trigiani has Southwest Va down to a art.. I live near Big Stone Gap and know this area really well... I can envision the areas she is depicting with such clarity.
Even when she talks about Europe it all becomes clear in my mind... like you are actually there.

This is a Must read... I loved it

Alex Cross was a rising star in the Washington, D.C., Police Department when an unknown man gunned down his wife in front of him. His desire for vengeance was placed on hold as he raised his children himself. But when a case triggers a connection to his wife's death, Alex may finally have a chance to catch the killer.

I have read/listened to several of Patterson's books and especially am fond of the Cross series.. I found the narration exceptional and the story line captivating.. even though I missed the previous book Mary Mary I backed up to listen to it.. there is where I filled in the gaps.
Kudos to James Patterson!
