    It's the start of Hollywood on Hudson, and New York City is swept up in the glamour. Every night, the red carpet rolls out for movie stars arriving at premieres in limos; the most exclusive restaurants close for private parties for wealthy producers and preeminent directors; and thousands of fans gather with the paparazzi, hoping to catch a glimpse of the most famous and beautiful faces in the world. With this many celebrities in town, special task force NYPD Red is on high alert - and they can't afford to make a single mistake.

    I really enjoyed the dual narrators. It helps you keep track of the two paths of the stories. I loved this book and really hope it is the beginning of a new series and these two narrators read the next books.

    Little else in life is as dangerous as fire jumping. Flying past towering pillars of smoke, parachuting down to the edge of an all-consuming blaze, shoveling and sawing for hours upon hours, days at a time, all to hold the line and push back against the raw power of Mother Nature. But there’s also little else as thrilling - at least to Rowan Tripp. The Missoula smoke jumpers are one of the most exclusive firefighting squads in the nation, and the job is in Rowan’s blood: her father is a legend in the field. She’s been fighting fires since her eighteenth birthday.

    Story

    Story: I loved this story. I'm a fan of romance, mystery, and some substance and this had it. I love the idea of fire jumping and all of the relationships that went into this story. It was a great read. I'm only bummed that its not part of a series.

    Narrator: She was excellent! I love a female narrator when the main character is a strong female. She was easy to follow and was great at putting the emotion into the story. I will listen to something read by her anytime!

    Susan Elia MacNeal introduced the remarkable Maggie Hope in her acclaimed debut, Mr. Churchill's Secretary. Now Maggie returns to protect Britain's beloved royals against an international plot - one that could change the course of history. As World War II sweeps the continent and England steels itself against German attack, Maggie Hope, former secretary to Prime Minister Winston Churchill, completes her training to become a spy for MI-5.

    Story

    I was a bit hesitant to listen to the second book, with a new narrator, but I am so glad I did! The narration was wonderful, and the story was almost better than the original! Twists and turns, romances, happy and sad. And a thrilling cliffhanger. I cannot wait for Book #3 to come out!

    London, 1940: Winston Churchill has just been sworn in, war rages across the Channel, and the threat of a Blitz looms larger by the day. But none of this deters Maggie Hope. She graduated at the top of her college class and possesses all the skills of the finest minds in British intelligence, but her gender qualifies her only to be the newest typist at No. 10 Downing Street. Her indefatigable spirit and gifts for codebreaking, though, rival those of even the highest men in government, and Maggie finds that working for the prime minister affords her a level of clearance she could never have imagined....

    Story

    I absolutely loved listening to this narrator read this book. It was wonderfully written and read. Wanda McCaddon excellently switched from character to character without over doing any of it. Her accents were perfect, her male voices believable.

    Susan MacNeal wrote a wonderful story, truly making me feel like I was in London during WWII. Her descriptions were full but not flowery nor tedious. She made me feel like I was friends with Maggie and David.

    I cannot wait to read more by MacNeal and would listen to anything read by McCaddon.

    Story

    From best-selling ABA author Noel Hynd comes this new series set against the backdrop of Havana, an explosive capital city of faded charm locked in the past and torn by political intrigue. U.S. Treasury Agent Alexandra LaDuca leaves her Manhattan home on an illegal mission to Cuba that could cost her everything. Accompanying her is the attractive but dangerous Paul Guarneri, a Cuban-born exile who lives in the gray areas of the law. Together, they plunge into subterfuge and danger.

    Evelyn J Martin says: "Enjoyable, a bit predictiable, but entertaining."
    "Narrator made a huge difference"

    Story

    Again, Hynd's LaDuca stories are great, but not for listening too. I'd much rather read and skip over the parts where he uses too much detail. And, Hill was a poor choice for a book with such a strong female lead.

    Alex LaDuca travels to Miami to continue her investigations into the murder-and-money-laundering activities of the Dosi cartel, an intrigue set in motion in Hostage in Havana. Sent there by the U.S. Treasury Department to speak with a recent Cuban defector, she soon realizes this key player may be no help at all. Alex attempts to navigate a Miami underworld that encompasses elements of the surreal and supernatural. But can Alex emerge from this world with her life - and her faith - intact?

    Story

    Noel Hynd's books are great and I love his Alex LaDuca stories. However, this narrator left such a sour taste in my mouth. First of all, the main character is a woman, so having a woman narrate would have been ideal. Secondly, if you are going to have a man, at least choose a man who can decently preform women's voices. Hill's female voices were horrible and all the same.

    I didn't realize until listening to Hynd's book that he over details a lot of sections. While reading it, you automatically skip over parts that are redundant. Unfortunately not an option while listening. I will continue to read Hynd's LaDuca series, but will not be listening to his books anymore. Or anything read by Hill.

    When Charise Lee, a young Asian Canadian soprano, is found stabbed in the heart backstage during rehearsals, she suddenly goes from scarcely being seen as a star to taking center stage. Georgetown law professor Mac Smith thought he'd just be carrying a rapier in Tosca as a favor to his beloved Annabel, but now they're both being pressured by the panicked theater board to unmask a killer. Providing accompaniment will be former homicide detective, current P.I., and eternal opera fan Raymond Pawkins.

    Rebecca says: "Another good story."

    Another good book by Truman and read well by Gigante. At times the book is long and over detailed, but I love her storylines.
