    New York Times best-selling author Linda Lael Miller has earned a large and growing following for her wildly popular novels starring the Creeds and the McKettricks. As her many fans will attest, no one brings cowboys - and their affairs of the heart - to life in quite the way she does. With the author’s signature style, Big Sky Country delivers a scintillating tale that you will not want to miss.

    As always Linda Lael Miller brings together perfection, perfect setting, perfect story line, perfect romance. I loved the Creed and the McKettrick series from Miller and this one fits the bill as well. Jack Garrett does an excellent job at narration, he just has that great 'cowboy' voice. Wonderful book to just set back listen and cuddle in on a good, nice, dreamy, rainy day.

    Times are hard for newly minted vampire Merit. Ever since shapeshifters announced their presence to the world, humans have been rallying against supernaturals---and they're camping outside of Cadogan House with protest signs that could turn to pitchforks at any moment. Inside its doors, things between Merit and her Master, green-eyed heartbreaker Ethan Sullivan, are tense.

    I have found another series to put on my 'always' read list. The narrorator takes some getting used to at first, the characters in the book seem almost haughty in the way they are read but you do get used to the way Ms Holloway portrays them. This book has been my favorite so far. The twist at the end totally blew me away and I am still not sure if I am happy about it or not. But I do know that I am happy with the series.

    This is my first Molly Harper book and she is now on my favorite author list. This was a great book and wonderful to listen to, the narration is spot-on. I would actually sit in my driveway after I got home because I did not want to stop listening. A fun story with hilarious laugh out loud moments and funny, normal & easy to relate to characters (terribly grateful my Mom is not like the one in this book). I really couldn't get enough and did not want it to end. As I begin to start listening to the next book I am hoping with everything I have that Molly Harper will write more of these books!!!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    I put this book on my wish list after all of the hype about the movie, and then forgot about it. I was insistent that I read the book before watching the movie (and I kept my promise). But, oh how I wish I had remembered it was there sooner. This was a beautifully written book and was so in sync with the era it portrayed, that I was lost back in time. The narration was absolutely wonderful. I was just completely drawn into the entire story, laughing, crying, getting mad, & wanting revenge, the entire book was just so compelling. If you have not read this book, DO SO NOW -- DO NOT WAIT!!! You will not be disappointed.

    Druid Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert. But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shape-shifters called skinwalkers.

    I have truely come to love this series. The books are very well written and have great stories behind them. Once again, Oberon the wolfhound, keeps me laughing out loud and dying for more. The writer just has a great way with words & a great imagination. I will continue to read these books as long as he keeps writing them.

    Growing up with telepathic abilities, Sookie Stackhouse realized early on there were things she'd rather not know. And now that she's an adult, she also realizes that some things that she knows about, she'd rather not see—like Eric Northman feeding off another woman. A younger one. There's a thing or two she'd like to say about that, but she has to keep quiet—Felipe de Castro, the Vampire King of Louisiana (and Arkansas and Nevada), is in town.

    Story

    I agree with other reviewers that this was not the best Sookie novel, but I don't agree with how bad they reviewed it. It was alot of Sookie talking to herself/day-dreaming/thinking but that is who she is so you can't really knock her for it. I don't really understand all the other reviews complaining about Sookie going to Taco Bell, she only goes once and she is a some-what normal everyday person, she does eat food, she went to Taco Bell -- so what - get over it. I liked the fact that there was a storyline regarding the others in the town, not just all Sookie, we've heard so much about the others so having their stories in this book keeps the storyline going and not just leave us hanging on what happened to those we have come to know through Sookie. No there wasn't as much action in this book as there were in some of the others but there was enough action to keep the book moving. I wasn't bored with the book, but i wasn't setting on the edge of my seat. None of the Sookie novels have ever left me setting on the edge of my seat; they are just easy books to listen and follow along with that are very entertaining.

    Story

    The good: The story itself was a 5 star easy. This is one of the best books in the series so far. The story uncovers some secrets about Rachel that was totally unexpected (for me anyway) but totally make sense now and I could see where they can be used and were necessary for the series to grow. Rachel grows up a little in this book, but her habit of doing the wrong things for the right reasons is still a big part of her.

    The ugly: The only problem with this book was the narrator. Not that it was bad enough to make you want to put it down and read the book; but it wasn't good either. Once you get used to a 'voice' of a series and then mid-stride that 'voice' changes...it really throws you for a loop. The main problem with the narrator was the mispronunciation of words from the previous books. It took me forever to figure out that 'Pis-ca-REE' was actually 'Pis-Car-EE'. Then 'Ta-Ka-Ta' was pronouced 'Tak-a-Ta', a 'lay' line was pronouced like 'lee' line, etc. I understand that one person may not be able to narrate an entire series, they have other obligations. However, if a narrator has to change, they should at least listen to the one of the previous audiobooks to see how words are pronounced in previous versions. Also, her voice for Jenks was too high in pitch, he sounded like a Chippette.

    Despite dating one vampire and living with another, Rachel Morgan has always managed to stay just ahead of trouble...until now. A fiendish serial killer stalks the Hollows, claiming victims across society, and the resulting terror ignites a vicious Inderland gang war. And while the ancient artifact Rachel is hiding may be the key to stopping the murderer, revealing it could also create a battle to the death among the numerous supernatural races that live in and around Cincinnati.

    Rachel Morgan is a runner with the Inderland Runner Services, apprehending law-breakers throughout Cincinnati. She's also a witch, one of the many Inderlanders who revealed themselves after a genetically engineered virus wiped out 50 percent of humanity. Witches, warlocks, vampires, werewolves: the creatures of dreams and nightmares have lived beside humans for centuries, hiding their powers. But now they've stopped hiding, and nothing will be the same.

    Story

    I am almost finshed with the 3rd book in this series and I am enjoying them very much. The story/plot lines are really well developed as are the characters. I like the difference in this series from other 'fantasy/otherworld' type seriers as there is actually a plot and a story and its not just boy meets girl, boy looses girl, bad thing happens, boy gets girl back. There is some romantic interest through the first 3 books, but it is NOT the story itself. Mystery and wondering what is going to happen next is what keeps you hooked on this series. Plus (and always my favorite) there are just some laugh out loud moments as the main character who seems to have it together, doesn't...always have it together...even though she's a redhead she can have some great blonde moments.

    The narrator of this series is also very good, she really puts a voice to the characters that keeps you interested and also helps you distinguish who is actually talking, where some female narrators have issues with mens voices as they all sound alike, Ms. Gavin does really well.
