For his victims, for their families and for the investigators tasked with finding him, the senselessness and brutality of the Golden State Killer's acts were matched only by the powerlessness they felt at failing to uncover his identity. Then, on April 24, 2018, authorities arrested 72-year-old Joseph James DeAngelo at his home in Citrus Heights, Calif., based on DNA evidence linked to the crimes. Amazingly, it seemed, evil finally had a name. Please note: This work contains descriptions of violent crime and sexual assault and may not be suitable for all listeners.

If you are into true crime I highly recommend this book! Incredibly deeply researched, then told by the original victim/survivors, family members, and, most importantly, law enforcement personnel. Interesting listening!

When Claire Parker left Sanctuary, West Virginia, she thought it was for good. But now she’s back, reeling from an ugly divorce. Readjusting to small-town life is harder than Claire expected, so she’s surprised, and grateful, to find companionship in Willow, an abused Thoroughbred mare. Willow is Claire’s "whisper horse", and they share a special, rare bond. Except Willow isn’t the only one helping Claire heal; Willow’s ruggedly handsome veterinarian, Dr. Tim Arbuckle, is sympathetic…and secretive.

I am not ordinarily a romance reader, but the backdrop of horses drew me in. I enjoyed the interwoven story line, with twists I didn't expect. I'll look for more like this!

Charlie Keefe is not just your typical dog lover - he's a world famous dog painter, a.k.a. "The Picasso of Pooch Portraits". Unfortunately, Charlie's beloved muse Pete, his lovable Jack Russell terrier, has just died. So, after months of suffering over his dearly departed soulmate and wondering if he ever made it to The Rainbow Bridge, Charlie reluctantly agrees to foster a new puppy - a cute Cavalier King Charles named Brownie from the local animal shelter.

I can get into the idea of spirit dogs, even talking ones; but this dog was not very likable from the start, but was worse when dead???

And the narrator seemed to forget which character was 'speaking' at times.
