AUDIO BOOK CHOICE.....

  WINTER STORMS
 WINTER STREET #3
Read by Erin Bennett
BY ELIN HILDERBRAND

ABOUT THE AUDIO BOOK:
Gather under the mistletoe for one last round of caroling with the Quinn family in this heartwarming conclusion to Elin Hilderbrand's bestselling Winter Street Trilogy.

Some of the stormy weather of the past few seasons seems to have finally lifted for the Quinns. After a year apart, and an ill-fated affair with the Winter Street Inn's old Santa Claus, Mitzi has returned to rule the roost; Patrick is about to be released from prison; Kevin has a successful new business and is finally ready to tie the knot with Isabelle; and best of all, there's hopeful news about Bart, who has been captured by enemy forces in Afghanistan.

That doesn't mean there aren't a few dark clouds on the horizon. Kelley has recently survived a health scare; Jennifer can't quite shake her addiction to the drugs she used as a crutch while Patrick was in jail; and Ava still can't decide between the two lovers that she's been juggling with limited success. However, if there's one holiday that brings the Quinn family together to give thanks for the good times, it's Christmas. And this year promises to be a celebration unlike any other as the Quinns prepare to host Kevin and Isabelle's wedding at the inn. But as the special day approaches, a historic once-in-a-century blizzard bears down on Nantucket, threatening to keep the Quinns away from the place--and the people--they love most. Before the snow clears, the Quinns will have to survive enough upheavals to send anyone running for the spiked eggnog, in this touching novel that proves that when the holidays roll around, you can always go home again.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Elin Hilderbrand made a paper angel ornament in third grade that is still in her family's custody. She celebrates the holidays by making batches of homemade mustard and chive pine nut dip and gifting them to her lucky friends. Her favorite carol is "O Holy Night." The Winter Street Trilogy is her first holiday novels. The following rumors about Elin Hilderbrand are true: She writes her novels longhand, she is a good cook and a terrible gardener, and she is fighting breast cancer. Everything else is up for speculation.

MY THOUGHTS/REVIEW:
Best selling author Elin Hilderbrand’s WINTER STREET Trilogy ends with this delightful holiday novel, WINTER STORMS. As with the other stories in the trilogy, WINTER STORMS takes place in Nantucket with the Quinn family. I do not think you have to have read the other two books to enjoy this one but it would be great holiday fun if you could. 
 
Hilderbrand is an expert at drawing readers in by making one feel like you know each of the characters. The Quinn family runs a delightful Inn on Nantucket called Winter Street and Kelley is the head of the family and in this last edition, we find Kelley in poor health and that tends to play a lot into the story. He is still married to Mitzi (who I found to be rather "ditzy" but fun) and remains good friends with his first wife, Margaret, the news anchor for a major television station in New York.

The lives of the children, Patrick, Kevin, Ava, and Bart make up the rest of the story that would seem to go in so many directions but again the author is so skilled as to have them all wind around each other to the delight of this reader. As Christmas Eve nears, storms threaten each of these main characters' lives in one way or another making you turn pages to find out if things will work out for each of them.


I found this to be a quick read and so enjoyed being lost in the holidays with the Quinn family and get my mind off things going on in my own crazy life. If you are like me, reading a good holiday story always helps to launch the Christmas season in a happy and delightful way. WINTER STORMS shouldn't disappoint if that is what you are looking for.

 THE OBSIDIAN CHAMBER
Agent Pendergast Series
BY DOUGLAS PRESTON
and LINCOLN CHILD 

ABOUT THE AUDIO BOOK:
A TRAGIC DISAPPEARANCE
After a harrowing, otherworldly confrontation on the shores of Exmouth, Massachussetts, Special Agent A.X.L. Pendergast is missing, presumed dead.
 

A SHOCKING RETURN
Sick with grief, Pendergast's ward, Constance, retreats to her chambers beneath the family mansion at 891 Riverside Drive--only to be taken captive by a shadowy figure from the past.
 

AN INTERNATIONAL MANHUNT
Proctor, Pendergast's longtime bodyguard, springs to action, chasing Constance's kidnapper through cities, across oceans, and into wastelands unknown.
 

BUT IN A WORLD OF BLACK AND WHITE, NOTHING IS AS IT SEEMS
And by the time Proctor discovers the truth, a terrifying engine has stirred-and it may already be too late . . . 

ABOUT THE AUTHORS:
The thrillers of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child "stand head and shoulders above their rivals" (Publishers Weekly). Preston and Child's Relic and The Cabinet of Curiosities were chosen by readers in a National Public Radio poll as being among the one hundred greatest thrillers ever written, and Relic was made into a number-one box office hit movie. They are coauthors of the famed Pendergast series and their recent novels include Fever Dream, Cold Vengeance, Two Graves, and Gideon's Corpse. In addition to his novels, Preston writes about archaeology for the New Yorker and Smithsonian magazines. Lincoln Child is a former book editor who has published five novels of his own, including the huge bestseller Deep Storm.
 

Readers can sign up for The Pendergast File, a monthly "strangely entertaining note" from the authors, at their website, www.PrestonChild.com. The authors welcome visitors to their alarmingly active Facebook page, where they post regularly.

AUDIO BOOK CHOICE.....

*******************************************

MISSING
A PRIVATE NOVEL
BY JAMES PATTERSON
and KATHRYN FOX 

ABOUT THE AUDIO BOOK:
Even for Private Investigations, the world's top detective agency, it's tough to find a man who doesn't exist . . .

Craig Gisto has promised Eliza Moss that his elite team at Private Sydney will investigate the disappearance of her father. After all, as CEO of a high-profile research company, Eric Moss shouldn't be difficult to find.

Except it's not just the man who's gone missing. Despite the most advanced technology at their disposal, they find every trace of him has vanished too.

And they aren't the only ones on the hunt. Powerful figures want Moss to stay "lost," while others just as ruthlessly want him found.

Meanwhile, a routine background check becomes a frantic race to find a stolen baby and catch a brutal killer - a killer Private may well have sent straight to the victim's door . . .
