Re: What are you reading?

I understand that.  But Grisham's departures still showed good writing
style.  I found 'Plums' writing style crude.  I checked One for the $ at
Audible and saw this:
"A Jersey girl with Bette Midler's mouth and Cher's fashion sense...Who
could resist this doll?" (New York Times Book Review)
This is exactly what I didn't like about Sugar Plums.    I probably wouldn't
try One because it's only available at audible abridged and I rarely waste
my time on 3 hour books.
Still, they list 5 more of hers unabridged that I could try.  Do you suggest
the numbers or the Full... books?
