    Caren Gray manages Belle Vie, a sprawling antebellum plantation that sits between Baton Rouge and New Orleans, where the past and the present coexist uneasily. The estate's owners have turned the place into an eerie tourist attraction, complete with full-dress re-enactments and carefully restored slave quarters. Outside the gates, a corporation with ambitious plans has been busy snapping up land from struggling families who have been growing sugar cane for generations, and now replacing local employees with illegal laborers. Tensions mount when the body of a female migrant worker is found in a shallow grave on the edge of the property.

    Would you listen to The Cutting Season again? Why?

    I would listen again and have recommended the book to friends. This is a fresh take on the mystery. You are never quite sure where you are being lead. Love the protagonist - very real, not a cookie cutter hero by any means.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Oh my yes, it also convinced me to take the long way home.

  • Dracula [Audible Edition]

    The modern audience hasn't had a chance to truly appreciate the unknowing dread that readers would have felt when reading Bram Stoker's original 1897 manuscript. Most modern productions employ campiness or sound effects to try to bring back that gothic tension, but we've tried something different. By returning to Stoker's original storytelling structure - a series of letters and journal entries voiced by Jonathan Harker, Dr. Van Helsing, and other characters - with an all-star cast of narrators, we've sought to recapture its originally intended horror and power.

    What made the experience of listening to Dracula [Audible Edition] the most enjoyable?

    The story was really suspensful. Yes I knew the plot but hearing it from the charactors perspective really made it quite heart pounding.


    What other book might you compare Dracula [Audible Edition] to and why?

    I recently listened to Heart of Darkness and again the narration took an old story , that I felt I knew, to a different place.
