I just finished Before He Finds Her, by Michael Kardos, read by Julia Whelan. This is the third thriller I took a chance on based on the glowing professional reviews (the others being the horrid One Step Too Far and the marginally acceptable Descent), and although it was the best of the bunch, it didn't come close to being a riveting, thrilling, can't-put-downable page turner. It started oddly and rather slowly, with shifts in time and POV, but once it really got going, the story--involving a teenage girl who's been hidden away and presumed dead since her mother was murdered 15 years before--became quite intriguing. There were surprises along the way, but not a lot of suspense; if I graded books, this one would be a solid C.

Now reading Cannary Row, by John Steinbeck, narrated by by Jerry Farden. His voice is perfect for this time and place, and I'm enjoying his reading. The book, of course, is a classic and a good read under any circumstances, but is the MobileRead Book Club selection for this month.
BTW, this can be had as a WhisperSync for Voice book if you buy the correct version of the eBook. The one you want is: Cannery Row, but it's not easy to find. For some reason, Amazon only shows the non-WhisperSync edition, even though they're from the same publisher. And at the same price.
