    If you could sum up On Thin Ice in three words, what would they be?

    A Fantastic Read!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Finn MacGowan. He's got this incredible sexy laid back swag about him. He tries to convey this nonchalance attitude like he doesn't care....please..I saw through that facade to so fast. I could literally see Finn falling in love and I loved his protectiveness of "Sister Beth" and Dylan.


    What does Xe Sands bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I think she brings the characters to life. The emotions that comes across in her voice when she reads..I mean, it's phenomenal. I think she's a perfect fit to the audiobook and I for one don't understand why she didn't narrate all of them but...I guess that's a question for another day.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    (Without sounding too cheesy) My tagline would be: Ice cracks and melts away, but true love lasts a lifetime. (needs work I know but we're going to leave it at that)


    Any additional comments?

    Oh yes, the additional comments. I came into the Ice series smack in the middle. I started with "Blue Ice" and loved it. I have a habit of reading the summary and the other readers/listeners comments and obsessing over it and analyzing it turning it upside down and inside out until I'm satisfied that I want to spend my money or my credit. (I'm so anal it's not even funny) So after "Blue Ice", I purchased the first book of the series and started from there until I got to "On Thin Ice" and I'm so glad did. I really liked the fact that previous characters were re-visted. I just wished Xe Sands had narrated from the beginning of the series...not to say that the other narrators in the previous books weren't good because they were but when I got to "Fire and Ice" and heard her voice...that was it...I was hooked. I was extremely happy to see that she narrated this one too. I really hope this isn't the end. It is a fantastic series!

    The last thing I want to comment on is this...I mentioned that I do read the comments of previous listeners to see how they liked the book and I read a comment that really was uncalled for. To actually call somebody "puke in a bucket" is horrendous and saying that she needs another profession definitely wasn't called for. I thought it was hurtful and very mean spirited. There is a way to write a negative comment without being mean. It's called (lets all say it together) constructive criticism. It almost sounds you have some kind of malicious intent toward this narrator and I really hope that Ms Sands didn't read that because..that had to have hurt. I know that's your opinion and you have right to express your opinion and you are entitled to your opinion. The only thing I'm saying is there is a right way and a wrong to say things about people and in my opinion you chose the wrong way. Words affect people...what you say to people affects them in ways you probably don't understand because if you did, you wouldn't have put that out there like that. Just choose your words the next time, that's all I ask. Ask yourself, "would I like it if someone said this about me", "how would I feel if someone said that about me". Just something to think about that's all.

    In Brooklyn Bones, a crime of the past comes much too close to home when Erica Donato’s teenage daughter, Chris, finds a skeleton behind a wall in their crumbling Park Slope home. Erica - a young widow, overage history PhD candidate, and product of blue-collar Brooklyn - is drawn into the mystery when she learns that the skeleton is of an unknown teenage girl and that it was hidden there within living memory. Erica and Chris are both touched and disturbed by the mysterious tragedy in their own home.

    Kathi says: "Overall good, with some weak spots"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely recommend this because it keeps you engrossed throughout the entire book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Erica of course. Being a single mother, going to grad school and working part time, I love her "go getter" and no nonsense attitude.


    What does Xe Sands bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Xe brings this book to life for me. The emotions of the characters comes through so beautifully when she narrates. She's extremely good at her craft.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did. Some parts were extremely sad while some made me chuckle.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this book to anyone who is a mystery/suspense lover. Happy Reading! :)

    Story
    (70)

    One week of mind-blowing sex on a beautiful Caribbean island. Of all the business proposals financial tycoon Dominic Saxon has heard, Taylor Steele's is definitely the most tempting. All Taylor wants in return is for Dominic to father her baby. No strings, no commitments...just a mutually satisfying arrangement. Make that very satisfying. For a man with no intention of marrying again, it sounds ideal.

    CAROLYN says: "IT WAS MORE MEDIOCRE THAN MAGICAL"
    "Awesome Read!!!"

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
