    No one likes to be alone during the holidays. For New York's most posh dating service, Personally Yours, it is the season to bring lonely hearts together. But Lt. Eve Dallas, on the trail of a ritualistic serial killer, has made a disturbing discovery: all of the victims have been traced to Personally Yours.

    Story

    As with all of the "In Death" series, this book is engrossing and has really intriguing plot line. Unfortunately Susan Erikson's is as always, irritating, snotty and abrasive. She makes Eve Dallas sound like a stone cold bitch. She does not seem to understand that Eve doesn't have to raise her voice or speak in a confrontational manner at all time. She should be allowed to speak in a normal tone when speaking to people. Even when threatening someone it is more effective to use a calm quiet menacing voice. Unfortunately Ms Eriksons narrates all authors in this manner.However I continue to listen to these books because I love the stories. Where's Loralei King when you need her?

    The reader for this book was so bad that I couldn't finish the ebook. She couldn't keep her voice the same from sentence to the next. She shifted back and forth from southern, french to hispanic and even asian, all being spoken by the same person. She also portrayed the best friend as a sqeaky voiced half wit.

    Would you try another book from Catherine Coulter and/or Laural Merlington?

    I have read all of the FBI series a number of times, but do not enjoy the audio books because the reader does a terrible job.


    What didn’t you like about Laural Merlington’s performance?

    She does a terrible job with the various voices. She cannot do male voices at all. She made very macho verile Dillion Savich sound like Pee Wee Herman. All of the male voices are high and squeeky.


    Was Riptide worth the listening time?

    Yes, if you can get around the readers voice, the story is great. Luckily I have read the book a couple of times.

    All New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum has to do is bring in semi-retired bail jumper Eddie DeChooch. For an old man he's still got a knack for slipping out of sight...and raising hell. How else can Stephanie explain the bullet-riddled corpse in Eddie's garden? Who else would have a clue as to why two of Stephanie's friends suddenly vanished? For answers Stephanie has the devil to pay: her mentor, Ranger. The deal? He'll give Stephanie all the help she needs...if she gives him everything he wants.

    What did you love best about Seven Up?

    The various wacky characters.


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

    Getting there is the most fun


    What about Lorelei King’s performance did you like?

    Lorelei King is great. She not only has all of the main characters down pat, but they are true to the written descptions of each character. I have read all of Ms Evanovich's books and have just recently started listening to the audios. Ms King is also very consistant in her voices for each character through out the series. She is one of the best. I wish she would do JD Robb's "In Death" series.


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

    I have actually laughed out loud at some of the sceene, particarlly with Grandma Mazur or Lula.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would get a different narrator.


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

    As always, Ms Davidson saves her killer close, until the end.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Narrator has very very snooty, sarcastic style though out the entire book. She is so bad that when a body is discovered you expect her to say "Whatever", like she is to bored to be bother. She narrated all of the "Goldie" bookes in this same bored sarcastic manner.

    While catering a cosmetics company luncheon, Goldy witnesses the hit and run death of a rising young sales associate. Could the death have anything to do with the animal rights picket line in the parking lot...or with the exotic blue rose found next to the victim's body?
