    The Hangman's Daughter by Oliver Pötzsch is a very good mystery. There are four books in the series.

    I love the Game of Thrones books by George RR Martin. Mystery, drama, fantasy, it's all in there.

    My favorite books I re read every so often are of course I think great:

    The Jungle by Upton Sinclair
    The Egg and I by Betty McDonald
    The Good Earth by Pearl S Buck
    The Camerons by Robert Crichton
    The Ladies of Missalonghi by Colleen Mccullough
    Got fabric?

    I loved Bel Canto by Ann Patchett. Strong plot and memorable characters make this a wonderful book to listen to. The story stays with you. I love opera even more because of this book.

    Never met a scrap or vintage sewing machine I didn't like!
    Many a lost and lonely vintage machine has found a home with me, 25, and counting.
    Love a good treasure hunt each and every day.

    I love listening to any Robert Crais books. His detectives Elvis Cole and Joe Pike are interesting and funny. I get most of my book on tapes as play-a-longs from my local library

    Author Lee Child and his Jack Reacher series are great! He needs to write and publish faster!! I am always waiting for the next one. Michael Connelly's series with Harry Bosch are also great. The Janet Evanowich series with Stephanie Plum are hilarious! You will love Lulu! David Baldacci also has good ones. I really like CJ Box--Joe Picket series. I've listened to all of his on CD, but now his new ones are all audible which I don't do---yet.

    Try the knitting/mystery books by Maggie Sefton or the "herb" series by Susan Albert. They both have endearing characters that are fun to revisit. Both of them have new books coming out in the spring and I'm anxious to spend time again with old friends and they include recipes which so far are always yummy.

    I just recently started listening to books on CD in my sewing room. It makes me feel like I am doing 2 of my favorite things at the same time. I do love a good mystery.

    The Elizabeth Peters books are my favorites. Her series with Amelia Peabody is about archeaology and murder. Language tapes sound like a good idea too.
    every cloud has a silver lining but sometimes it is hard to get to the mint

    Totally enjoyed the Jan Karon series from the local library because they were so expertly read. I could just see the characters and action. I absolutely love Sandra Dallas books. . . have listened to them over and over. Another recent favorite is the Maisie Dobbs series by Jacqueline Winspear, which is pre-WW1 in England and forward with a fabulous private investigator. Very, very clever and fascinating. I always check out my audio books at the library and am so bummed when I finish a really good one.
