    Life isn’t bad for psychic Jolie Wilkins. True, she doesn’t have a love life to speak of, but she has a cute house in the suburbs of Los Angeles, a cat, and a quirky best friend. Enter Rand Balfour, a sinfully attractive warlock who insists she’s a witch and who just might turn her life upside down. Rand hires her to help him solve a mystery regarding the death of his client who also happens to be a ghost. Jolie not only uncovers the cause of the ghost’s demise but, in the process, she brings him back to life!

    I am looking for a new series and was disappointed with the narration or maybe just the writer.
    It did not flow smoothly and I was not overly impressed by the language used.
    Just because I read, and like bit of romance with my fantasy does not make me an idiot.

    Plot was ok, however as a whole, it failed to deliver.
    The new new series I am looking for unfortunately is not this one.

    Now, picking up from A Discovery of Witches' cliff-hanger ending, Shadow of Night plunges Diana Bishop and Matthew Clairmont into Elizabethan London, a world of spies, subterfuge, and a coterie of Matthew's old friends, the mysterious School of Night that includes Christopher Marlowe and Walter Raleigh. Here, Diana must locate a witch to tutor her in magic, Matthew is forced to confront a past he thought he had put to rest, and the mystery of Ashmole 782 deepens. Deborah Harkness has crafted a gripping journey through a world of alchemy, time travel, and magical discoveries.

    What ever you do, do not fall asleep listening to this book as you will be forever trying to find where you were last conscious. Not from boredom but from not wanting to put it down.

    I have really enjoyed this series and as you can tell I am eagerly awaiting the next book.

    Deborah has done a wonderful job of presenting a popular topic in a different way and Jennifer has done a splendid job narrating it.

    I really appreciate that the narrator has not changed between books as that can often be disconcerting.

    I am very impressed with the amount historical homework that has obviously taken place and the suppositions that have been made.

    Rose Drayton lives on the Edge, between the world of the Broken (where people drive cars, shop at Wal-Mart, and magic is a fairy tale) and the Weird (where blueblood aristocrats rule, changelings roam, and the strength of your magic can change your destiny). Only Edgers like Rose can easily travel from one world to the next, but they never truly belong in either.

    Novelist and professional companion Evangeline Ames has rented a cottage in the outskirts of Little Dixby, far from the London streets where she was recently attacked. Fascinated by the paranormal energy of nearby Crystal Gardens, she finds some pleasurable diversion in sneaking past the wall to explore the grounds. And when her life is threatened again, she instinctively goes to the gardens for safety. Lucas Sebastian has never been one to ignore a lady in danger, even if she is trespassing on his property.

    Would you try another book from Amanda Quick and/or Justine Eyre?

    I absolutely adore Amanda Quick books, I have many broken spines of hers on my bookshelf. That said I did not enjoy this story as well due to the reader.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I felt that the accent was all wrong, I did manage to block out her voice and enjoy the story however.

    Strong telepath Elle Drake has gone missing. Even her six magical sisters cannot find her. They all agree that she is alive and something terrible must have happened or she would have contacted them. Jackson Deveau, a deputy sheriff in the small village of Sea Haven, off the northern California coast, has known that Elle is destined for him. When she disappears, he gathers with his friends, Jonas Harrington and Ilya Prakenskii, and Elle's sisters to find her and bring her safely home.

    Would you listen to Hidden Currents again? Why?

    The ability of the female lead to overcome insurmountable odds in a believable manner was captivating. I have had a great deal of trouble putting this down.


    What other book might you compare Hidden Currents to and why?

    I enjoy that fact that the Drake books are a series that can also stand alone, each story comes to a satisfactory conclusion.

    Just as Jane Jameson’s unlife seems to be stabilizing, fate sinks its fangs firmly into her butt. Despite her near-phobia of wedding planning, her no-frills nighttime nuptials to her sexy boyfriend, Gabriel, are coming along smoothly. That is, until she turns a fatally wounded teenage acquaintance, and the Council pronounces her responsible for the newborn vamp until he can control his thirst.

    Reginald Mason is wealthy, refined, and, by all accounts, a gentleman. However, he is not a gentleman by birth, a factor that pains him and his father, Bernard Mason, within the Regency society that upholds station over all else. That is, until an opportunity for social advancement arises, namely, Lady Annabelle Ashton.

    I actually really like the way she narrates. I feel she fits the genre really well.

    RITA finalist Julie Klassen has earned numerous awards for her popular historical romance novels. In The Maid of Fairbourne Hall, pampered Margaret Macy flees her home in London to avoid marrying a dishonorable man. Now, with no money and no place to stay, Margaret does the unthinkable: she takes a job as a housemaid in the home of two brothers - both of whom are former suitors. As an “invisible” observer, Margaret realizes she may have misjudged one brother and wonders if it’s too late to win his admiration.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I found this book hard going. I did finish reading however to took much longer than others I have read. I felt this was a book that I had no trouble coming back to if something came up.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I felt the story whilst good was very drawn out.
