When an 11-year-old is abducted on her way to school, the FBI doesn't waste a moment, sending agents to scour the area and embedding Special Agent Ava McLane with the distraught family. In the eye of the storm is local detective Mason Callahan, whose life is crumbling to pieces - he's related to the victim, and his longtime confidential informant has just been murdered.

I bought this as a Daily Deal. The story was OK, if a bit worn out but I had a very hard time listening to the female narrator. I did finish the book but wouldn't do the sequel with this narrator. I thought the way she read it made the character sound like a know-it-all when I think on the page she was supposed to sound competent but sympathetic. This one was just not my cup of tea.

Other self-help books claim to reveal the path to happiness, but F*ck Feelings warns that convincing yourself that there is such a path will actually lead you to feel like a true failure. What the Bennetts can promise you is that you can manage any situation life throws at you if you can keep your sense of humor, bend your wishes to fit reality, restrain your feelings, manage bad behavior, and do what you think is right.

I really disliked this book. I agree with many of the points Dr. Bennett makes but the way this book is put together is terrible. It could maybe be a useful pamphlet but I wish I hadn't wasted money on this book. It was unnecessarily drawn out and just very hard to listen to.
