    The story begins high above Los Angeles, at the extravagant home and equally impressive wine cellar of entertainment lawyer Danny Roth. Unfortunately, after inviting the Los Angeles Times to write an extensive profile extolling the liquid treasures of his collection, Roth finds himself the victim of a world-class wine heist.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The mystery was predictable and the rattling off all the names of French wines all through the story was excessive. The story did not hold my interest.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Peter Mayle again?

    I have been told this is not his usual style, so I would try one more.


    What about Erik Davies’s performance did you like?

    He did a good job reading and had a nice voice.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    no

    Story

    No outsiders are ever admitted to the monastery of Saint-Gilbert-Entre-les-Loups, hidden deep in the wilderness of Quebec, where two dozen cloistered monks live in peace and prayer. They grow vegetables, they tend chickens, they make chocolate. And they sing. Ironically, for a community that has taken a vow of silence, the monks have become world-famous for their glorious voices, raised in ancient chants whose effect on both singer and listener is so profound it is known as “the beautiful mystery.”

    Sparkly says: "Engaging, entertaining, and heartbreaking."
    "The Beautiful Mystery, beautifully written."

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Beautiful Mystery to be better than the print version?

    The audio edition was very enjoyable it really draws you into the story. Ralph Cosham did a wonderful job of reading the story. There were a lot of characters and sometimes it was hard to keep them straight. If I was reading the book, I think seeing their names in print would make that easier.

    I would recommend this book as an audio or the physical book, both are very good.


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

    There are a lot of twists and turns in the story. It is long and was hard to stop listening to the story, but I had to hear it in sections because of the length.
