Takedown Twenty

Author: Janet Evanovich

Review by: Audreyperry, Algoma Public Library

I haven't listened to or read a Janet Evanovich in awhile so thought I would listen to one for an easy summer book. This wasn't as good as I would have hoped for, it was a little kooky.

Dear John

Author: Nicholas Sparks

Review by: ramacitti, Waupaca Area Public Library

Really tried to  get into audiobooks, but I was having problems staying focused on the book. Yes I have read ALL of the Nicholas Sparks books, I choose a book that I have read before, because I knew that I was going to have problems listening instead of reading.When I read a book, I make sure I have the time to sit down and read it. When I was Listeningto the book, I keep finding things to do as I was listening.

I haven't listened to many of Sidney Sheldon's books, but I really enjoyed this one. It kept me going right up until the end and had a great epilogue.

Deadly Heat

Author: Richard Castle

Review by: Audreyperry, Algoma Public Library

I watch the 'Castle' series often on television and thought it would be interesting to compare the book to the tv show. I have to say, they both have the good and not so good things, but I very much enjoyed this book. The characters on tv have done at good job depicting the characters in the book.

Review by: Barb B., Shawano City-County Library

This is the 4th book in the Tradd Street series.  The story,  a mixture of mystery, romance,  humor and even ghosts, takes place in Charleston, South Carolina.  I found the historic background of the area very interesting.  You could almost picture the old mansions and the refurbishing they were attempting.

Good book, but then again I'm a Sue Grafton fan. Plenty of mystery surrounding the adventures of the lead character.

Author: Danielle Paige

Review by: Denise C, (Sturgeon Bay) Door County Library

I love different takes on fairy tales or old children's stories. This time a take on the Wizard of Oz. At some point after Dorothy returned to Oz she  became evil.

She is the one the resident's of Oz chose to kill Dorothy so Oz...
