The murder of a woman from one of the town's oldest families has Rosedale's upper crust howling for blood, and the prosecutor is counting on Ruby's inexperience to help him deliver a swift conviction. Ruby's client is a college football star who has returned home after a career-ending injury, and she is determined to build a defense that will stick. She finds help in unexpected quarters from Suzanne, a hard-charging attorney armed to the teeth, and Shorty, a diner cook who knows more than he lets on.

I loved this book! It was really 2 books in 1. Loved the narator! Kept your blood pumping and kept you guessing! I hope there’s more books with Ruby and her partner who is hell on wheels!

They meet at a local tavern in the small town of Belleville, Delaware. Polly is set on heading west. Adam says he's also passing through. Yet she stays, and he stays - drawn to this mysterious redhead whose quiet stillness both unnerves and excites him. Over the course of a punishing summer, Polly and Adam abandon themselves to a steamy, inexorable affair. Still, each holds something back from the other - dangerous, even lethal secrets. Then someone dies. Was it an accident or part of a plan? By now Adam and Polly are so ensnared in each other's lives and lies that neither one knows how to get away.

I apologize for wanting a happy ending. As far as I was concerned this book failed me in that respect. Just left me feeling hollow and I like Ms Lippmanns books normally! Felt like I spent all those hours listening and then had the rug pulled out from under me at the end. I cried !!!!

As usual Lee Child has not disappointed with the latest chapter inJack Reacher’s life. This book went by very fast for whatever reason. The end came long before I️ was ready for the story to end.

When Lane Coolman's car is bashed from behind on the road to the Florida Keys, what appears to be an ordinary accident is anything but (this is Hiaasen!). Behind the wheel of the other car is Merry Mansfield - the eponymous Razor Girl - and the crash scam is only the beginning of events that spiral crazily out of control while unleashing some of the wildest characters Hiaasen has ever set loose.

As a part-time PI and full-time grim reaper, Charley Davidson has asked a lot of questions throughout her life: Why can I see dead people? Who is the hot supernatural entity following me? How do I get gum out of my sister's hair before she wakes up? But "how do I trap not one malevolent god but three?" was never among them. Until now. And since those gods are on earth to kill her daughter, she has little choice but to track them down, trap them, and cast them from this dimension. There's just one problem. One of the three stole her heart a very long time ago.

I absolutely love this series. I started on the series by just reading a random description of book #1. I was hooked from the first word and voraciously read all that had been written up to that point and now await each new book impatiently. Charlie reminds me a little of an other worldly Stephanie Plum ((Janet Evanovich). The same zany wit from the heroine! I can't imagine just reading these. By listening to them on Audible I think you get so much more of the dry wit and one liners . Lorelei King has the perfect voice for this series and captures all the characters' different voices just great. Can't wait for #11 in January 2017!!!!!
