Predictable: Mr. and Miss Anonymous

Mr. and Miss AnonymousMr. and Miss Anonymous by Fern Michaels
Audio Book, Narrator
Published May 2009 by Brilliance Audion
ISBN 9781423344681
Listened July 2011

I finished listening to this book just before I left for my trip to New York City. I attended the Indie Book Event. I thought I would have a little bit of down time to get this written up, but it was pretty much no stop until I arrived at the airport on Sunday. By then, I was so exhausted, I don't think I could have strung together a coherent thought. Add to the the fact that there was not super spectacular about Mr. and Miss Anonymous, I just couldn't get motivated to put words on the screen.

 I picked this out of my digital library right after I finished Room by Emma Donoghue. I think I was thinking for something different, but the summary sounded like what I was looking for. It wasn't a bad listen, just too predictable for me. I think I would have liked to see more about what went on at the school. The relationship between Lily and Pete seemed contrived; I didn't feel any chemistry between them. The story just didn't hold me attention, and that's bad for an audio book because then my attention wanders.

It might have been better to have read the book, instead of listen to it. If you are looking for a light mystery to read, then you'll probably like Mr. and Miss Anonymous.

Video: In my July Mailbox and What I'm Reading

Here are the eBooks I picked up this month. I have quite a back log so I tried to be a bit more selective this month.

Forbidden (The Books of Mortals)The Outsider: A Novel Jailbird
Stealing JakeSuddenly a Spy

New on my reading list this week:

Still MissingStill Missing by Chevy Stevens
On the day she was abducted, Annie O’Sullivan, a 32-year-old realtor, had three goals—sell a house, forget about a recent argument with her mother, and be on time for dinner with her ever-patient boyfriend. The open house is slow, but when her last visitor pulls up in a van as she's about to leave, Annie thinks it just might be her lucky day after all.
Interwoven with the story of the year Annie spent as the captive of a psychopath in a remote mountain cabin, which unfolds through sessions with her psychiatrist, is a second narrative recounting events following her escape—her struggle to piece her shattered life back together and the ongoing police investigation into the identity of her captor.
