THE CASTAWAYS
By Elin Hilderbrand, read by Katie Hale
Greg and Tess

MacAvoy are one of four prominent Nantucket couples who count each other as best friends. As pillars of their close-knit community, the MacAvoys, Kapenashes, Drakes, and Wheelers are important to their friends and neighbors, and especially to each other. But just before the beginning of another idyllic summer, Greg and Tess are killed when their boat capsizes during an anniversary sail. As the warm weather approaches and the island mourns their loss, nothing can prepare the MacAvoy's closest friends for what will be revealed.




RAVENS
By George Dawes Green,read by Robert Petkoff & Maggi-Meg Reed

When Shaw
McBride and Romeo Zderko drive into the small town of Brunswick, Georgia, their only thought is to fix their car's leaky right tire and continue on to Key West, Florida, away from their dead-end jobs as computer technicians in Ohio. But when Shaw discovers that the 318 million dollar Georgia State Lottery has just been claimed by an ordinary Georgia family, he sees an opportunity - he and Romeo will blackmail the Boatwright family for half their winnings and ditch their deadbeat lives for good.



By James Patterson, Ned Rust, read by Milo Ventimiglia

A terrifying outlaw has just arrived in town, with the goal of throwing it into chaos--and filming the pandemonium for the fellas back home. Only one person can stop him and his thugs from destroying the city and everyone living there. Daniel X assembles an all-star team of his own creation, but not even he could imagine the enormity of this made-for-TV-villain's powers.


THE BINGO CHALLENGE
For this worthy cause I would like to challenge my
fellow bloggers to buy the Mandela FolkTales AND
donate it to one of their giveaways!

If you accept the challenge, please come back

badge I made up...it is for a great cause!
