Gemma Rowe is a shy math nerd from Sydney, who, despite having an affinity for probability and logic, only just worked out at 28 that she's not actually straight. Not only is she not straight, but she's developed feelings for her best friend, Sarah. Gemma knows the logical thing to do is to get over Sarah. She wants to be in her own happy relationship and not caught up on her straight best friend. But how is she supposed to get over Sarah when she can't figure out who she's attracted to anymore?

How lovely, a truly romantic book that breaks free from the usual tropes and explores the central character three dimensionally and has a good story and "supporting cast"

Malcolm Saint was an assignment. A job. Any journalist would kill for access to this beautiful, difficult man, but I was the one sent to uncover Chicago's hottest entrepreneur. I intended to reveal him - to learn his thoughts, his secrets, his lifestyle - then complete my assignment and walk away. But my head was overtaken by my heart, and I fell for him - hard.

At first I enjoyed the story and I did listen right through to the end. My problem was that (this is a bit difficult to do without spoiling) it gets a bit worthy and overworked in the middle section. The resolution is ok, but I fell out of love with the characters a bit by then.

This is the remarkable story of the English language; from its beginnings as a minor guttural Germanic dialect to its position today as a truly established global language. The Adventure of English is not only an enthralling story of power, religion, and trade, but also the story of people, and how their lives continue to change the extraordinary language that is English.

The origins of English. The way English has fit itself to it's users and been manipulated by groups was fascinating from start to finish.
If you like English, etymology or linguistics this is a worthwhile listen

1970s Atlanta: A time of great change and yet for many the fierce desire to keep things exactly the same is still strong. For women like Maggie Lawson and Kate Murphy every day is a battle. From different sides of the tracks they are united in their determination to be good cops. But they have to fight the prejudice of people like Maggie's uncle Terry who are convinced a woman's place is in the home. And all this in a city where 10 cops are killed a year and most of the city is a no-go area - even for their male colleagues.

Where does Cop Town rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I admit I haven't finished the book yet but wanted to get the message out that this book is as fantastic as a slasher slaughter fan could wish for despite being a bit different. I am totally hooked - as usual. So far it's up there with the best

What was one of the most memorable moments of Cop Town?

The pacing, the aggravating characters some of whom you can't help but love, the GRIPPING storyline

What about Lorelei King’s performance did you like?

The last Slaughter book I listened to was narrated by someone else. Thank goodness. Lore lei is back, she has the perfect tone and characterisation

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I remember the casual open sexism in this book, younger people wanting authentic vintage could do worse than listen to this story, it is painfully, pinpoint accurate to time and really atmospheric.

Any additional comments?

As a stand alone or new series, no need to read earlier books first, dive in. Warning high probability of addiction to Slaughter with this (and other) book(s) by this cracking writer .
