    Seth Quinn is finally home. It's been a long journey. But a lot has changed in St. Christopher since he's been gone - and the most intriguing change of all is the presence of Dru Whitcomb Banks.

    Would you listen to Chesapeake Blue again? Why?

    Yes. It is always great to hear how family and marriage has survived over time and hardships and that they still stick together and are always there for each other. The camaraderie between the brothers and their families is great but the sense of humour keeps the story delightful and easy to listen to. A great all rounder!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Seth. He has just turned into a great person despite a bad start in life.


    Have you listened to any of James Daniels’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not sure.


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

    Yes, I laughed and on occasion felt some sadness.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved it!

    Opening night at New York's New Globe Theater turns from stage scene to crime scene when the leading man is stabbed to death center stage. Now Eve Dallas has a high profile, celebrity homicide on her hands. Not only is she lead detective, she's also a witness - and when the press discovers that her husband owns the theater, there's more media spotlight than either can handle.

    Liz says: "Another good Dallas"
    "What a twist at the end!"

    Story
    Would you listen to Witness in Death again? Why?

    I would love to listen to this story again. The characters are very interesting and its a bit like Agatha Christie where just about everyone hated the victim and could have done it. However, Eve, with Rourke's help, digs deep and sifts through until she gets it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved how Eve actually had empathy for her murderer. Of course her ignorance of theatre was pretty cute too.


    Have you listened to any of Susan Ericksen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes I have listened to many of them. I love them all so it's hard to compare. Susan does a great job!


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

    I certainly laugh at times as the witty remarks, especially between Eve and Roarke and Eve and Peabody are just delightful. There were sad moments but not quite to the point of crying.


    Any additional comments?

    I thoroughly enjoy this series. The way each character has their own special bits e.g Feeney's nuts and of course Eve's pretense at being really hard when she's really quite soft is lovely. The relationship between Eve and Roarke is so special and I do not get bored with them, ever!

    Story

    On a rainy Southern night, Jade Sperry endured a young woman's worst nightmare at the hands of three local hell-raisers. Robbed of her youthful ideals and at the center of scandal and tragedy, Jade ran as far and as fast as she could. But she never forgot the sleepy "company town" where every man, woman, and child was dependent on one wealthy family.

    Margaret says: "Lifted by Narration"
    "Tough life turned around."

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

    I would rather have read this one. I did not enjoy the way it was performed.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    It took very long but I suppose in the end justice was served.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Dick Hill?

    I'm not sure but Dick Hill did a terrible job. He cannot read a woman's voice without making her sound weak and stupid. That was not appropriate in this book. It was really annoying.


    Could you see Breath of Scandal being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Not sure.

    Story

    When Olivia Bevelstoke is told that her new neighbor may have killed his fiancée, she doesn't believe it for a second, but, still, how can she help spying on him, just to be sure? So she stakes out a spot near her bedroom window, cleverly concealed by curtains, watches, and waits . . . and discovers a most intriguing man, who is definitely up to something. Sir Harry Valentine works for the boring branch of the War Office, translating documents vital to national security.

    Donna says: "Brilliant"
    "Not quite as good as other Julia Quinn books."

    Story
    What did you like best about What Happens in London? What did you like least?

    Olivia's character was sweet and witty. Harry's family background was very dark and grim and it did not seem to really have any bearing on the story.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The book within the book seemed a bit silly and was given too much emphasis.


    What about Rosalyn Landor’s performance did you like?

    The reading was great and well performed.


    Was What Happens in London worth the listening time?

    Mostly.


    Any additional comments?

    It was very long winded. The essence of the story was good though.
