    Maybe it was the Shenanigans gift certificate that put her over the edge. When children's librarian and self-professed nice girl Jane Jameson is fired by her beastly boss and handed $25 in potato skins instead of a severance check, she goes on a bender that's sure to become Half Moon Hollow legend. On her way home, she's mistaken for a deer, shot, and left for dead.

    Overall

    Having read Charlaine Harris and Jeaniene Frost I was a bit dubious whether this author would cut it. I was pleasantly surprised. From start to finish I was laughing my butt off. I will definitely be looking for more of Molly's books and the narrator was really good too!

    As the owner of the Cypress Hollow gas station and garage, Fiona Lynda is not one for pretty dresses or fussy make-up. In fact, most days she forgets to brush her hair. But she does have one guilty little secret - she's been in love with Abe Atwell for over 10 years. Problem is, Abe - the town's handsome harbormaster - barely knows she exists. But then Fiona petitions the council to demolish a deserted old lighthouse, just as Abe is equally determined to preserve the local landmark.

    Story

    I wrote to Rachael about the previous book that the narrator wasn't as good for these stories as Carrington but I guess it was already a done deal since Fiona's Flame came out soon after. I have to say the narrator almost killed it for me with her mans voice sounding like an octogenarian who smoked a pack a day for 70yrs. I sure hope that Ms. MacDuffie is brought back for any further books.
    If you have the time to read a book I suggest kindle or hard copy for the last two books.

    Ever since she was a child, Ivy has been gripped by visions of strange realms just beyond her own. But when her sister goes missing, Ivy discovers the truth is far worse - her hallucinations are real, and her sister is trapped in a parallel realm. And the one person who believes her is the dangerously attractive guy who's bound by an ancient legacy to betray her. Adrian might have turned his back on those who raised him, but that doesn't mean he can change his fate, no matter how strong a pull he feels toward Ivy.

    Story

    I'm not going to compare it with Cat and Bones.

    Not a bad concept for the story line and fairly predictable. I personally found there to be a lot of waffling. Repetition of facts that, lets face it, we readers are not stupid nor are our memories bad enough to warrant continuous repetition of facts. Hopefully it's just because it's the beginning of the series and Jeaniene was just trying to set the scene and maybe some people need to be reminded, over and over again.

    Tavia did a good job as usual but I kinda think that another narrator would have been better as we (fans) associate her too much with Cat and Bones.

    It wasn't the kind of book I just couldn't put down and had to read all at once but it was a pleasant (if slightly monotonous) read (listen). I will be buying the next one to see how it goes.. GO IVY!!!

    Story

    A lot of people haven't liked the narrator change but I found her much easier to listen to than Marguerite Gavin who I find a little dull. Yes some pronunciation is different which can often annoy but it didn't bother me too much. Gigi is much more up-beat in her narration which for me, made it easier to listen to.

    Anyhow..back to Marguerite for the rest of the series anyway...I have listened to worse narration changes so this one was a pleasant surprise.

    I was a bit worried that listening to a book this long would get tedious but it toddled along nicely and kept my interest up.

    Unfortunately, Diana has gone and left us hanging again right at the end!!!! OMG>>>I hope we don't have to wait long for the next one.

    This is the first Outlander novel I have listened to on audio although I do now own them all and I must say that Davina Porter did a capital job and all her voices were much the same as the ones in my head, so phew!

    After traveling through time in Shadow of Night, the second book in Deborah Harkness's enchanting series, historian and witch Diana Bishop and vampire scientist Matthew Clairmont return to the present to face new crises and old enemies. At Matthew's ancestral home at Sept-Tours, they reunite with the cast of characters from A Discovery of Witches - with one significant exception. But the real threat to their future has yet to be revealed, and when it is, the search for Ashmole 782 and its missing pages takes on even more urgency.

    When Evan Trueblood blows into town looking for his wife, Molly, he’s convinced that she came to see her best friend, Jane. But it seems like the witch made it to New Orleans and then disappeared without a trace. Jane is ready to do whatever it takes to find her friend. Her desperate search leads her deep into a web of black magic and betrayal and into the dark history between vampires and witches. But the closer she draws to Molly, the closer she draws to a new enemy - one who is stranger and more powerful than any she has ever faced.

    Sometimes the only way to love - and redemption - is to make a deal with the devil. After the death of her parents, Lady Aurora de Marquise is left with no illusions. Stripped of her birthright and betrayed by her uncle, escape is her only option. With her life on the line, she narrowly avoids another murder attempt - only to run headlong into Lord Brigham de Mornay, a man most consider a monster. With her uncle's henchmen nipping at her heels, Aurora knows better than to trust a stranger - especially one as compelling as Brigham.

    Story

    I initially got this book thinking it was a circle of seven book but upon listening to it for a bit I realized it wasn't. No big. It's your pretty standard His Rom formula. man meets woman, wants her, she resists, they get together then a baddy from her past kidnaps her and tries to kill her..yadda yadda.

    Well worth a credit if you want some feel good action of a romantical (yes totally made up word) type.

    Narration wasn't too bad (unfortunately, I have heard worse), some of the pronunciation drove me insane...
