It took me a little bit to really get into this book, but the twists and turns were really awesome once it got into the story. I wasn't a fan of the sound effect because there were points where it was hard to hear the narrator over the screaming tires or the loud car noises and such. It it didn't blast your ears i think it would have pretty great!

Samuel Cooke knows most women wouldn't give him a second glance even if he were the last man on earth. He's the cripple with crutches, the nerdy computer genius every female past puberty feels compelled to mother. So when he leaves his lucrative career to teach programming to high schoolers, romance definitely isn't on his radar. Perhaps that's why Greta Cassamajor catches him off guard. The sarcastic gym coach with zero sense of humor is no beauty - not even on the inside. But an inexplicably kind act toward Samuel makes him realize she is interesting.

I was a bit on the fence with this book at first, but soon fell in love with characters, especially Greta. I could easily place myself in her shoes of wanting to protect herself and not wanting to fall into the trap so to speak of relationships. This book is about second chances and finding who are more than on the surface. Will absolutely listen to this one again!!

What do a Confederate soldier who died on the field of battle, a woman who was driven from her home by the ravages of the Civil War, and a man who perished in a turn-of-the-century asylum have in common? They all contact private investigator, Walt Williams. A bizarre series of events surrounding these paranormal visits culminate in the discovery of a terrorist plot to detonate bombs at a crowded festival. Once again, Lady Justice pairs Walt with forces from beyond the veil to solve mysteries hidden for decades and bring evil-doers to justice.

I loved the history that was brought into this one. I do like ghost stories and all so that i am sure helped me like this one as much as i did. I love that Walt is back to helping people without agenda, just trying to do his best. I laugh out loud when i think of Mary and her fried twinkie experience, that would most definitely have been me (only i never had one before) but i would have had more to say to that mother too... I thought it was funny about the ghosts making requests, but i do like how Walt was willing to just go with it, especially since the last book :)

I didn't laugh through this one as much as i did with books C and D, but i did laugh at parts. This one felt like it was just to here, there and everywhere that i felt more confused at times than humorous. I may have to listen to this again to see if i might have just missed something

The beginning was Amazing! Loved the incorporation of history into it and made it more exiting to think about what if this really happened... Then came introducing the main character. That is where i got a little bored. Ok, things were a bit exciting with a storm and all that but in a lot of ways it was almost too much detail maybe, not really sure, that lost my attention for a little bit. I had trouble following the changes between different characters and where the story was headed because people i thought were actually together were not. Once it got past the storm though it was easier to follow for me and it turned into a really great book. I think that this would make a really awesome movie or tv show just because the details given in the story were hard to follow sometimes because i couldn't picture what was being talked about, where a tv or movie they would just show it to you and i would be like "oh, that!!" Overall worthy read/listen.

The Five Wishes Series is five hot and hilarious novellas about wishes that go terribly wrong…fortunately. Each novella is roughly 100 pages with NO cliffhanger. Five Wishes...A happy ending is just a coin toss away.

I love how these books get to the point fairly quickly and with a very funny take on things. My absolute favorite story has to be the last book though. This one made me laugh soooo hard at times with how the girl was all sweet and innocent while being fun loving and tough. My next favorite was the 2nd book, every girls dream story.... except for the smell... :)

For some reason the book quit playing and deleted itself off my device after listening to just over half of the book. I will have to try it again later to finish it. But what i did listen to was really good! not so much scary, but a little bit creepy or just all out strange which is great too! Sometimes i did get a bit lost in the fact that another story had started, there didn't seem to be much of a pause between when one story ended and the next one started, but after a little while you get used to it. Definitely with listening to especially when you may not have a lot of time to get through a larger book

I will start this review by saying i am not always in love with Ambrose Ibsen's books, Most that i have listed to i have had to push myself to get through but in the end almost all were definitely worth the listen. This one on the other hand had me hooked from the very beginning. Strange things started happening right from the beginning and once the ball was rolling so to speak, it got really really creepy!! A couple times while listening i thought that it would make a great TV movie. I don't think it would be able to be strung out long enough for a full on movie, but a TV movie i think would be perfect!!! The ending though.... I can't wait to listen to the next book in this series!!

Every business starts with a market and a need. It was obvious when Heather got out of a quick stint in county lock-up that there was a need for someone to give karma a little shove in the right direction. We've all been there. We know the pain of moving on. But what if, Heather and Suzie wondered, moving on could be pain - guaranteed - for the ones who'd hurt them? Welcome to The Ranch: A place where clients are encouraged to order justice ala carte. Torture by the stripping of fingernails? That will cost you $100 a nail. Maybe if you're a repeat customer we'll give you a deal.

Twisted thinking of the main characters... bring on the payback! Some spots were more detailed gory than others, but when the details were told it made me cringe and squirm a bit. I would have liked to get to know the ladies just a little bit better before the end of this book, although the mystery about them helps keep it interesting, not knowing exactly where things will lead to. I can imagine something like this really happening, especially in today's day and age which is pretty darn scary. Hope there will be a next book, i would like to see where the road will lead

"Welcome to Conti's. I'm Lia and I'll nguhhhhhhhhhhhhh." I froze. Directly facing me was Olympic swimmer, Jay Morningstar . . . and I just made an idiot of myself. The rest of the table looked up to see me standing there with my mouth practically gaping. His coach, who I recognized from TV interviews, and even two other swimmers from the Olympic team were there. They didn't say anything, they didn't even blink.

This story is very predictable, but assuredly worth listening to. Girl working at her family's restaurant, Famous and very handsome man eat there, They fall in love rather quickly, Something happens to separate them, They get back together with a Happy Ending. It was a nice change of pace that her parents just wanted her to be happy and not some overbearing unwilling to see reason people. I think i would listen to this story again. :)
