    Dale Kinsall considers himself adjusted to his new location - the eccentric clinic staff, the altitude and climate of the high desert, and his new role in his community. He doesn't anticipate the threatening series of rhyming notes on his desk.

    Where does Scent of Danger rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I love this series. The characters are charming and well written and you can related to them easily. I like the feel and the pace of the book. Not too stressful and just the right mix of mystery and back-ground story line.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sully of course, the dog is my favourite character because he is just so adorable. But there are a lot of likable characters in the book, all with their quirks and charms.


    What about Tom Schiff’s performance did you like?

    I like the reader's voice. It suits the tone of the book, and he does the many characters well.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Dale! Dale!! I think I'll eat it.


    Any additional comments?

    I didnt like this one quite as much as the first one, but I'll still buy the next one pronto. More please!!

    Making a living reproducing famous artworks for a popular online retailer and desperate to improve her situation, Claire is lured into a Faustian bargain with Aiden Markel, a powerful gallery owner. She agrees to forge a painting - a Degas masterpiece stolen from the Gardner Museum - in exchange for a one-woman show in his renowned gallery. But when that very same long-missing Degas painting is delivered to Claire's studio, she begins to suspect that it may itself be a forgery. Her desperate search for the truth leads Claire into a labyrinth of deceit where secrets hidden since the late 19th century may be the only evidence that can now save her life.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This story wasn't bad but the female character was a pain in the butt. Better as a book than an audiobook because then you could skip her useless whining ways.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The art bits were good, anything where we didn't have to deal with the female character was fine.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Xe Sands?

    I didn't mind the narration, it was what was being narrated that was the issue.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Art Forger?

    All the hysterics


    Any additional comments?

    A good story spoilt by a totally impossible character. I won't be buying another book by this author.

    Six million years ago, at the very dawn of the starfaring era, Abigail Gentian fractured herself into a thousand male and female clones: the shatterlings. Sent out into the galaxy, these shatterlings have stood aloof as they document the rise and fall of countless human empires. They meet every 200,000 years to exchange news and memories of their travels with their siblings.

    If you could sum up House of Suns in three words, what would they be?

    Immense awesome fiction


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Perslaine because she was compassionate and strong at the same time.


    What about John Lee’s performance did you like?

    I liked his rendition of Hesperus but there was a section of bad editing where his voice changes and the difference is quite noticeable. You can listen to him for the whole way easily.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    At this length, not a chance but it is still a book I wanted to finish, very much.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great book.The story line is complex but believable and despite the fact that you think you have figured out where the book is going several times, it still surprises you in the end.
