    On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me—well, actually, my true love, Darcy O’Mara, is spending a feliz navidad tramping around South America. Meanwhile, Mummy is holed up in a tiny village called Tiddleton-under-Lovey with that droll Noel Coward! And I’m snowed in at Castle Rannoch with my bumbling brother, Binky, and sourpuss sister-in-law, Fig.

    A great way to while away a few hours in a kinder gentler (maybe) era. This is a series that I enjoy for light listening. It is effortless and fun. The narration is excellent.

    FBI Special Agent Griffin Hammersmith, last seen in Backfire, has been recruited by Dillon Savich to join his unit in Washington, D.C. Savich sees something special in Hammersmith, an almost preternatural instinct for tracking criminals. While on his way to D.C., Hammersmith plans to visit his sister, Delsey, a student at Stanislaus School of Music in Maestro, Virginia. Before he arrives, he gets a phone call that Delsey has been found naked and unconscious, lying in a pool of blood, after a wild party. The blood isn’t hers - so to whom does it belong? Griffin must protect Delsey, but from whom?

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

    Different narrators


    Would you be willing to try another book from Catherine Coulter? Why or why not?

    Yes but not an audio book read by Rene Raudman and Paul Constanzo


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    They did not seem to be enjoying the story - the changes between male and female were often arbitrary and they made no effort to get into character = it sounded as though they may have phoned it in from different cities


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Bombshell?

    none were memorably bad or memorably good

    London, 1940: Winston Churchill has just been sworn in, war rages across the Channel, and the threat of a Blitz looms larger by the day. But none of this deters Maggie Hope. She graduated at the top of her college class and possesses all the skills of the finest minds in British intelligence, but her gender qualifies her only to be the newest typist at No. 10 Downing Street. Her indefatigable spirit and gifts for codebreaking, though, rival those of even the highest men in government, and Maggie finds that working for the prime minister affords her a level of clearance she could never have imagined....

    Story

    This was a not bad story completely spoiled by a narrator who attempted accents so badly that it was hard to tell where Lancashire ended and Atlanta Georgia began. The accents were so irritating that they detracted from the story. I was sorely disappointed as it was an interesting premise.

    Story

    There is nothing taxing or complicated about this book. It is exactly what you would expect from a book based and a book written by a character in a televsion show. I am still mildly surprised that the narrator is not Nathan Fillion each time I listen to one of these books - though I know it isn't going to be ahead of time! I listen to books on my way to work and this fit the bill perfectly.
