    Colorado caterer Goldy Schulz cooks up bigtrouble as she tries to help her longtime friend and fellow chef Yolanda Garcia. When the rental house shared by Yolanda and her irrepressible aunt Ferdinanda is destroyed by arson, the pair move in with cop-turned-PI Ernest McLeod. But then Ernest is shot dead and his house is set on fire, nearly killing Goldy, Yolanda, Ferdinanda, and nine beagle puppies that Ernest had recently rescued from a puppymill. Concerned for her friends, Goldy invites them to stay with her while the sheriff’s department investigates. Yet even Goldy's house isn't safe....

    Rather wordy light fare but maybe I've been reading too many hard hitters in this genre.

    Maggie Concannon is a glassmaker whose exquisite works are more than mere objects of beauty: they are reflections of her own true nature. One man has seen the soul in her art, and vows to help this complex woman build a lucrative career.

    Story
    What disappointed you about Born in Fire?

    Same characters, same plot - independent type woman and the man who may "manage" her. I didn't listen to more than 30% because it was BORING. These books have become long winded Harlequins. The JD Robb series is getting to be the same thing as well.


    What could Nora Roberts have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Stop writing the same thing over and over.


    Have you listened to any of Fiacre Douglas’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The narration was well done and even more so if the accent was acted and not original.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Born in Fire?

    Sent it back and suggested the author find some new personalities and behaviors for the characters. There is a very good author who also teaches and writes about the art. He suggests throwing out at least one third of what a person writes before sending it to an editor.


    Any additional comments?

    Can I have my credit back?
