    Story
    (199)

    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.

    Maria says: "A Great Pay Back!"
    "Step father swindels the town."

    Big Sky Country is among my favorit stories. Ranking in the 5 star catagory.


    What other book might you compare Big Sky Country to and why?

    I highly recommend the both the McKettrick and Mc Kettrick's of Texas series. They keep you wanting to listen to the next story.


    Which character – as performed by Jack Garrett – was your favorite?

    Several chapters got my heart going, but Jack Garrett's voice is easily heard, each word distinct and clear. Very pleasant listening.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I savored this story forcing myself to listen to it in segments and listened to several segments over again.


    Any additional comments?

    My only comment is that I wish there were many more in this series.

    Story
    (2)

    Mr. Damon is swindled, and to make matters worse, kidnapped. Our hero, the young inventor Tom Swift comes to the rescue and convicts the scoundrels with the help of his new invention, a telephone that also takes pictures. Imagine that! He also utilizes his amazing airships, and of course the help of his faithful companions and friends Ned Newton, Koku the Giant, and Eradicate Sampson. Every chapter of this book, number 17 of the Tom Swift series, is a cliff-hanger that has kept readers and now listeners in suspense, awaiting the next exciting chapter.

    Zalia says: "Reminded me of listening to the radio in the 50's."
