Audiobooks by Berenson, Cambron, Christie, Iles, Love, and Mejia | Xpress Reviews

George Guidall’s accents, his smart use of cadence, and his smooth tone make Berenson’s wonderful story even better; Christie is recommended Philippa Gregory fans; Iles’s latest is highly recommended; a detectiveless crime solved by the criminal herself

Audiobooks: Lucey’s Portrait of Sargent’s Women | Xpress Reviews

The author/narrator combination provides nonfiction storytelling at a high level, keeping the listener’s interest throughout the almost eleven hours; highly recommended for medium and large libraries, and small libraries with a strong arts readership

Audiobooks from Craig, Finder, Goodman, Hawkins, and Sincero | Xpress Reviews

Only for true fans of this type of humor; finder’s latest is “highly optional”; unwieldy narrative threads ultimately demand more work than they offer enlightenment; no plot or production missteps will deter Hawkins’s vast audience from demanding access; this motivational book will be popular with Sincero fans

A disappointing effort from Attenberg; flat characters from Foster; Fujimura’s account is for large collections where interest warrants; Healey is for historical fiction and women’s fiction fans; the operation of the Habsburg Empire; Lescroart’s latest: a very good work by an accomplished author; an appealing series entry for cozy fans—cupcakes not included

Despite engrossing true-life experiences, Lee’s work ultimately disappoints, though the book was much better received
