    Novelist and professional companion Evangeline Ames has rented a cottage in the outskirts of Little Dixby, far from the London streets where she was recently attacked. Fascinated by the paranormal energy of nearby Crystal Gardens, she finds some pleasurable diversion in sneaking past the wall to explore the grounds. And when her life is threatened again, she instinctively goes to the gardens for safety. Lucas Sebastian has never been one to ignore a lady in danger, even if she is trespassing on his property.

    Vicki says: "Fun paranormal romp suffers from odd narration"

    If you could sum up Crystal Gardens in three words, what would they be?

    Great story with excellent voice acting! Another winner! Moved at a quick place and I enjoyed every minute of it. All the characters were intresting


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved them all. It was nice to have strong secondary charters.


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

    Ms Eyre's narrating was excellent, i look forward to more of her work.


    Any additional comments?

    Looks like she got another winning series on her hand!

    What would have made Otherwise Engaged better?

    I have all of the Krentz, Quick, Castle audiable books. This was the worst. The story was so so. I just couldn't get interested in the main characters. BUT the narration was by far the worst I have ever heard. It sounded as if she was board with the story and was reading from a text book. I felt as if i was listening to an automated voice. I did go buy the hardcover book. I have them all in my library at home. I did read it after I listened to the audio version. it was OK. She has done so many interesting story lines but this was not one of them. Grab some of her other titles and skip this one.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I do plan to get her next book, be that Krentz-Quick or Castle


    What didn’t you like about Louise Jane Underwood’s performance?

    her performance was stiff,...sounded like the voice that you call for the correct time. maybe a male reader for the male roles might have been better.

    Once Olympia Wingfield had been free to devote all her time to her true passion: the study of ancient legends and long-lost treasure. But now, with three hellion nephews to raise, the absentminded beauty has very little time for research. Which makes it seem all the more serendipitous when a handsome stranger strides into Olympia’s library unannounced and proceeds to set her world to rights.

    Amy says: "Poor narration"
    "At last my Favorite Quick Book!!"
    Overall

    This is my favortite Quick book. I grabbed it the day it became avaiable. love the story, the wit, the danger, and gotta love the In-Laws!! i have worn out several paperback versions and a hard back...now i listen in the car and on my MP3 palyer!!! Her older books are my favorite. I also like that she doesn't feel the need to give the reader(listener) a history lesson when telling her tale! Just plain FUN. I hope some of the older ones like Mistress, With this Ring, I Thee Wed and a few others will come out with unabridges versions. I have the tape versions......./sob...i would love a unabridged verson not the horriable abridged ones they have avaiable.
