    Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    Where does The Witness rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    I hated to stop listening. This is the best Nora Roberts in a long time. The performance was also strong. I hope for more like this.


    What about Julia Whelan???s performance did you like?

    Did not take me out of the story. That is the best thing I can say about any performance for an audiobook.

    He was standing face-to-face with a dead woman…and she was holding a gun. Lieutenant Seth Buchanan finds his homicide investigation - and his heart - thrown into turmoil when Grace Fontaine turns up very much alive - and in possession of one of the huge blue diamonds known as the Stars of Mithra. The cool, controlled cop never lets his feelings get in the way of his job, and everything he knows about the notorious heiress tells him she's bad news.

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

    An older series, but enjoyable. I wish the other two books had been made into audiobook format also and the entire series offered at once. This is the 3rd and last one.

    Be aware this is a reprint.

    Halloween - with its tricks and treats - is a dust bunny's dream come true. Just ask Lyle, Sedona Snow's faithful sidekick. But for Sedona, it's a nightmare. Though her new job managing a small hotel and tavern on Rainshadow is helping her move on from her tragic past, a bizarre disaster down in the catacombs has brought a pack of rowdy ghost hunters to her inn. And now, Sedona's ex has arrived on the island, claiming he wants to get back together, just as a newcomer appears to have a strong interest in her.

    Would you listen to The Hot Zone again? Why?

    I am enjoying the Rainshadow series. Some of the offerings have been a bit subpar, but this one was good. A bit more attention to individualizing the books could be considered. I am getting the feeling of "lick and promise" to meet publishing deadlines.

    Perhaps a writing vacation could be considered even though I look forward to the books. They are a good diversion from reality. I want to keep anticipating them and not be disappointed when they appear.

    When Nina Linden is hired to landscape a private island off the New England coast, she sees it as her chance to rebuild her failing business after being cheated by her unscrupulous ex. She never expects that her new client, software mogul Deacon Whitney, would see more in her than just a talented gardener. Deacon has paid top dollar to the crews he’s hired to renovate the desolate Whitney estate - he had to, because the bumps, thumps, and unexplained sightings of ghostly figures in 19th-century dress are driving workers away faster than he can say “Boo.”

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

    I enjoyed the book, but some editing was needed. It tended to drag in the middle as if the author was trying to add length. A tighter and faster paced story would have improved the book.

    Lieutenant Commander Matthew Reddy and the crew of the USS Walker find themselves caught between the nation they swore to defend and the allies they promised to protect. For even as the Allies and the Empire of New Britain Isles stand united against the attacks of both the savage Grik and the tenacious Japanese, the "Holy Dominion" - a warped mixture of human cultures whose lust for power overshadows even the Grik - is threatening to destroy them both with a devastating weapon neither can withstand.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Firestorm to be better than the print version?

    Each book is around 15-16 hours which sounds long. It's not. The time passes quickly and then it is over which is disappointing. Anderson could have kept going and I would have kept listening.

    When a series reaches this point, they usually drag. Not much new happens and characters get confusing. This series stays interesting with surprises when you thought there could not have been any more.

    So many enemies have been introduced though, it is tough to see how our intrepid good guys/women led by CPT Reddy are going to prevail.

    Keep writing Mr. Anderson. We are waiting for the next installment.
