Cover ArtAvenger
by Frederick Forsyth
Great audio CD! A bit confusing at times towards the beginning as the story goes from 1995 to 2001 to the 1960’s to 1975 and back to 2001. Many intriguing threads come together to make for a great story. For me, when you have a novel with all this excitement the ending is huge and can make or break the story. The ending on this one--probably the last two to three sentences--make this novel all worth while! I don’t give a 10 out of 10 very often, and right up to the end I was at an 8 out of 10, but the ending on this one earned the book a 10!! Well done, Mr. Forsyth!!   posted Apr 14, 2014 at 10:07PM

Cover ArtA heartbeat away [sound recording] : a novel
by Palmer, Michael
This story actually made me nervous listening on audio CD because the story was so believable I could actually see something like this happening. Some authors have a true talent for building out a story and Michael Palmer does just that. Great story, great characters, and for me the most important part of a great story--a great ending! 8 out of 10 for me.   posted Apr 9, 2014 at 9:10PM

Cover ArtKiss and tell
by Michaels, Fern
Blindsided (Sisterhood #22) was just a so-so read for me, but after having read all the previous stories in this series, I had to move forward. Very good decision--this story was a great read! Intriguing tale of a boy’s humble beginnings in an orphanage to a well thought out ponzi scheme, the story keeps you guessing up until the end. And goes to show that your past can really come back to haunt you!! 8 out of 10 for me on this one.   posted Apr 9, 2014 at 8:56PM

Cover ArtThe dance of anger : a woman’s guide to changing the patterns of intimate relati
by Lerner, Harriet Goldhor.
"Women have a long legacy of assuming responsibility for other people’s feelings and for caring for others at the expense of the self". How true is this for so many women out there? I picked up this book because I felt I was having anger management issues and found instead that a female’s role in society often causes women to suppress anger. This book shows women how to effectively express that anger in non-combative ways. Society encourages certain behaviors in women, mostly to their detriment, so this book was really an eye-opener for me and helped me understand some of the feelings I’ve been experiencing. This book should be a must read for every woman--from age 15 on!! 8 out of 10.   posted Apr 5, 2014 at 10:36AM

Cover ArtSplit image [sound recording]
by Robert B. Parker
Really enjoyed this story, with the added bonus that it was just a 4-disk audio CD. Great story with many twists and turns; however, the ending was a bit predictable and anti-climatic for me. Really liked the concept of the identical twins and would have like to see this part of the story line developed and used a bit more. 7 out of 10.   posted Mar 25, 2014 at 8:34PM
