    New York Times best-selling master of suspense, Elizabeth Peters, brings an exotic world of adventure, intrigue, and danger to vivid life, in a tale as powerful as ancient Egypt.

    Overall

    I have enjoyed Elizabeth Peters' prior novels, but this one was so bad that - for the first time ever - I quit listening to it less than half way through. I like the narrator, but even she couldn't breath life into this very boring story. I should have read ALL the reviews - the one that called this book "tedious" was right on.
    What a disappointment!

    Knitting and life. They're both about beginnings - and endings. That's why it makes sense for Lydia Goetz, owner of A Good Yarn on Seattle's Blossom Street, to offer a class called Knit to Quit. It's for people who want to quit something - or someone! - and start a new phase of their lives.

    Marjory says: "The book was what I expected"
    "Another great story"
    Overall

    I always enjoy Debbie Macomber. Maybe some of the outcomes are predictable, but she has a nice way of bringing a story together. The best thing about this book is Delilah, the narrator. She speaks with a smile in her voice, and is perfect for Macomber books. Looking forward to the next installment of life on Blossom Street!

    Penelope Keith stars as Agatha Raisin in two more full-cast BBC Radio 4 dramas. Agatha Raisin, the Columbo of the Cotswolds, is back in two more full-cast dramas based on the bestselling books by M. C. Beaton.

    Ellen says: "Dramatized Radio Production, Not Unabridged Book"
    "Recorded as a radio show"
    Overall

    I was disappointed to realize, after I purchased this title, that it was a copy of the book adapted for radio. Lots of different voices, but also lots of very distracting sound affects. Would not ever order this type of recording again.

    Story

    Teddy Fay, a rogue agent last seen escaping an imploding building in Iron Orchid, has been considered dead for some time now. But President Will Lee thinks Teddy may still be alive. In a top-secret Oval Office meeting, Stone learns that he and his cohorts, Holly Barker and Dino Baldachetti, are being sent to the beautiful Caribbean island of St. Marks, courtesy of the CIA, to track down Teddy once and for all.

    Judy says: "Good, but hard to listen to"
    "Holly and Stone, together again"
    Overall

    I really like the Holly Barker character, and it is good to see her pair up with Stone again. The story was good, and it was an easy listen.
    My only complaint is that the reader mis-pronounced the city where Stone left his plane to be worked on ... Spokane is pronounced like "Spo-can" not Spo-cane. Surprising that such a good reader would get that wrong.

    Overall

    I have now read several of the Joanna Brady series, and the author continues to evolve the character nicely. I especially enjoyed the two story-lines and how she wove them together. A good story, with excellent narration and a thoroughly believable working woman main character make this a great listen.

    With the same incomparable style and warm, inviting voice that have made her beloved by millions of readers far and wide, New York Times best-selling author Fannie Flagg has written an enchanting Christmas story of faith and hope for all ages that is sure to become a classic.

    This is the first Fannie Flagg book I've ever read or listened to, and I was delightfully surprised. The author's delivery was perfect for the heartwarming story. A great listen!

    From award-winning mystery author J.A. Jance comes the seventh novel featuring Bisbee, Arizona's star sleuth - the courageous and capable Sheriff Joanna Brady. When a wealthy widow is mysteriously murdered, Joanna has more than enough suspects. As she struggles to determine which one is capable of murder, Joanna uncovers a tangled web of graft and corruption that goes straight to the heart of the local government.

    Overall

    I agree that some loose ends could have been more neatly tied up, but I really liked the fact that the story was told in a real life scenario. Sheriff Brady had to deal with a never-ending assortment of law enforcement issues, while at the same time having to deal with her family and personal life. She's a good character for J.A. Jance, and I hope to hear more of her.
