    Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she's struggling to conceal her power and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town's oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them.

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

    This is exactly what we like to get interested in and keep talking about. The writing is very realistic and the same genre but different. I loved it. Listened to it twice right off the bat.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story is told in whole, there are parts that are thought invoking and leading, making sure your imagination is always active and wondering what will happen next.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Being out of control, in your room, wanting nothing and only one thing and here he comes. You can feel the comfort through the writing.


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

    OH yes, I listened to it twice. As soon as it was over I listened to it again and got the whole story all put together again.


    Any additional comments?

    One of my new favorites, I hope this is going to be a series.

    Ten years ago, Lorelei's parents disappeared without a trace. Raised by her grandparents and leaning on the support of her best friends, Lorelei is finally beginning to accept the fact that her parents are never coming home. For Lorelei, life goes on. High school is not quite as painful as she thinks it will be, and things are as normal as they can be. Until the day the school's designated loner, Cameron Lusk, begins to stalk her, turning up where she least expects it, standing outside her house in the dark, night after night. Things get even more complicated when a new guy - terrifying, tough, sexy Jared Kovach - comes to school.

    Kirstin says: "PG-13 version of Darynda's snarky writing"

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Bland story line, amature writing. I was waiting for the mystery van to appear and someone to reach ober a tear off a mask... UGH! Not for me.


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

    The performance of Lorelei is as expected. Pretty good. The story is not for me.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Death and the Girl Next Door?

    All of it and start over.

    Olivia Kiskey needs a change. She’s been working at the same Nodaway Falls, New York, waffle house since she was a teenager; not a lot of upward mobility there. She’s been in love with Tobias, the cook, for the last four years; he's never made a move. Intent on shaking things up, Olivia puts her house on the market, buys a one-way ticket to Europe, and announces her plans to her friends - but then she meets Davina Granville, a strange and mystical Southern woman....

    What made the experience of listening to A Little Night Magic the most enjoyable?

    The writing is real, humorous, snarky and enjoyable. The narrator is awesome.


    What other book might you compare A Little Night Magic to and why?

    This would be comparable to Molly Harper's writing, because it is real, it is the snark and the sass and the life of each character is brought to reality with the writing.


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

    I have listened to all of Amada's performances I can find. Her voice is mezmerizing and I feel like I am listening to a friend at home. All of her character voices are very adaptable to person. I just lover her narrations (performances)


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

    On the other side of the magic's relam is.....


    Any additional comments?

    I want more writing from Lucy, this was great and will be on my listen to again over and over Ipod with Molly Harper, Nora Roberts and JR Ward.

The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

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

    I would selectively suggest this book to friends. The story is fantastic. The narrator is not for this book. The story itself of breakthrough and finding ones soul and learning about what gets you going is fantastic. The presonalities of the characters could use some work. So far so good though,


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The performance leaves something to be desired.

    Almost everybody who has grown up in Chicago knows about the Thorne Rooms. Housed in the Children’s Galleries of the Chicago Art Institute, they are a collection of 68 exquisitely crafted miniature rooms made in the 1930s by Mrs. James Ward Thorne. Each of the 68 rooms is designed in the style of a different historic period, and every detail is perfect, from the knobs on the doors to the candles in the candlesticks. Some might even say, the rooms are magic....

    Would you listen to The Sixty-Eight Rooms again? Why?

    I would most certainly listen to it again, As a matter of fact I did listen to it at least 2 times all the way through. I found the wirting excellent and the imagination sparking of the pre-teen and tween ages would be enthralled with this book. I loved the story so much it inspired me to look in to the Thorne Rooms on line.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jack is my favorite in this story, so out going and able to switch from the irresponsible to responsible like best friends do.


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

    Time in Life


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this book to any and all ages. Anybody with imiagination. She really brings the story to real and just over imagining the characters can lead to memories.

    Miranda Puckett has failed at every job she’s ever had. Her mother just wants her to come home, join the family law firm, and settle down with Jason, the perfect lawyer boyfriend. But when Jason turns out to be a lying cheater, Miranda seizes on a job that gets her out of town: long-distance vampire transportation. Her first assignment is to drive vampire Collin Sutherland from Washington to sleepy Half Moon Hollow without incident—no small feat for a woman whom trouble seems to follow like a faithful hound dog!

    Would you consider the audio edition of Driving Mr. Dead to be better than the print version?

    Oh yes!! Amanda jsut pins the characters as well as my own imagination!! She puts the attitude with the written 'snark'!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I cant pick a favorite!! I can match each of them to someone I know... well, really close!!


    What does Amanda Ronconi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    There is the attitude of the writers imagination brought right through with just the right amount of attitude. She gets it on the button!!


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

    Life, Love, and laugh your ass off!!


    Any additional comments?

    I just love Molly Harper and her writing real life. No endearing blah blah blah, just real life 'thats what I would have said' and Amanda is the perfect narrator for Molly's writing!! I love the way all of her books interact together. It feels like you get to know all of her friends and can seriously relate to just about all of them. Keep the books coming Molly!! LOVE THEM!!

    St. Vladimir's Academy isn't just any boarding school - it's a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They've been on the run, but now they're being dragged back to St. Vladimir's - the very place where they're most in danger.

    I just loved the story, everything played out in order. All surprising, unexpected but fit the story as if it were happening. Great book, I loved it and will read it again. I have recommended it to friends too!! I have read the series and cant wait for the 6th book in the series. Its everything I could ask for in a young love, vampire, society and adventure story!!

    It is summer in the northwest town of Nine Mile Falls, and 16-year-old Ruby McQueen, ordinarily dubbed The Quiet Girl, finds herself hanging out with gorgeous, rich, thrill-seeking Travis Becker. But Ruby is in over her head and starts risking more and more when she’s with him.

    Tom says: "This story will really surprise you stick with it!"
    "Rembering and hoping."
    Overall

    This is a story for the heart. I just loved it. Remembering the heartache of my own and hoping for what I have dreamt of for my own life relationship. I will recommend this to many of my friends. There are too many situations to relate to. Falling for the bad boy, and the hoping to find him again. Just a heart warming tale. The narration is terrific and emotion just runs through it.

    Prince of the Carpathians Mikhail Dubrinsky has witnessed numerous mysterious events during his many centuries on Earth, but now he is faced with the ultimate horror: the extinction of his species. The Carpathians' enemies salivate at the thought of a final victory, but all hope is not lost. The Carpathians gather, united in a desperate hope. And no matter the outcome, blood will be shed and limitless passion unleashed.

    Chantel says: "Excellent book! Narrater needs to go!"
    "UGH!! You've got to be kidding!!"
    Overall

    The story is lame, the whole story line is off! Not what is to be expected, I was left with more questions than answers. Not even questions to spark curiosity. This book doesnt run smoothly with the rest of the series. Save your money and move on to the next in the series. It was just 'not right'.

Set in the Carpathian Mountains, Joie, with her brother and sister go caving and come across the ancient warrior beset upon by several vampires. They have no choice but to throw their lot in with the hunter and do their best to escape with their lives from the underground labyrinth filled with ancient traps left behind by a powerful race.

    Susan L. Rock says: "To have the WHOLE Story"
    "Where is the rest??!"

    I was totally enthralled with the story, Joie and Traian are the best yet!! But...where is the rest of the story? There is more..There has to be more!! Love the series and hoping that the whole story is coming up. Thanks Christine, now that is the way to keep some one coming back for the 'rest of the story'.
