    In her best-selling Amelia Peabody mysteries, author Elizabeth Peters has created an award-winning mixture of vivid archeological detail, finely-tuned suspense, and witty romance. This, the 12th Amelia Peabody mystery, opens in 1914. As the tides of war rise, Egypt is threatened by attacks. Espionage abounds, pulling in several members of the Peabody Emerson household even as they embark on a new archeological season.

    This is a wonderful tale, told with humor and knowledge. I've listened to all the books in the series, and this was definitely the best. Amelia can be a bit egotistical, so injecting some more "objective" narrative can be a relief. And this narrator - Barbara Rosenblat - is fantastic, with a range of voices that is truly awesome.

    When Andie tries to gain closure with her ex-husband, he asks one final favor of her. A distant cousin has died and left North the guardian of two orphans. When Andie meets the two children, she realizes the situation is much worse than she feared. Carter and Alice aren’t your average delinquents, and the creepy old house where they live is being run by the worst housekeeper since Mrs. Danvers. Complicating matters is Andie’s fiancé’s suspicion that this is all a plan by North to get Andie back.

    Jessica says: "Loved This Book"
    "Great pairing of author and reader"
    Overall

    I thought this book was great! I don't generally like ghost stories, but this was an exception. The plot held together, and the characters were realistic. Angela Dawe is a super reader - I think she pegged every character with her voice. Worth listening to more than once.

    Mary Alice Brannigan doesn’t believe in the supernatural. Nor does she expect to find that Dreamland, the decaying amusement park she’s been hired to restore, is a prison for the five Untouchables, the most powerful demons in the history of the world. Plus, there’s a guy she’s falling hard for, and there’s something about him that’s not quite right.

    Overall

    When I first began to listen, I didn't think I'd like the narrator's voices, but by the time I'd listened to a couple of chapters, I was beginning to like them, and by the end, I was very impressed. I also enjoyed the storyline, crazy as it was, and thought the characters were interesting and well-developed. In fact, I listened to it twice, because I thought I hadn't quite appreciated it enough the first time. Well worth listening to, if you like Jennifer Crusie and fantasy (I loved Dogs and Goddesses and Agnes and the Hitman, so that may give you a clue as to my tastes!)

    The heroines of Lauren Willig's best-selling Pink Carnation series have engaged in espionage all over 19th-century Europe. In the sixth stand-alone volume, our fair English heroine travels to India, where she finds freedom-and risk-more exciting than she ever imagined.

    Elizabeth says: "Unsympathetic Main Character"
    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    I've enjoyed the "flower" series and was eagerly looking forward to this one. Unfortunately, this book didn't live up to the others. There were inconsistencies in the plot, and way too much verbiage - as though the author had too little plot. And the "heroine" was a spoiled, irritating, and selfish woman, who didn't deserve the rather dull hero. Even Kate Reading - a fantastic narrator - was unable to save it. I did finish the book, and was very pleased that I actually got through it!

    New York Times best-selling Grand Master Elizabeth Peters is at her stylish and suspenseful best in a richly woven tale of greed, treachery, and murder set against the tumultuous backdrop of wartime intrigue.

    Suzanne says: "The Golden One"
    "Unfortunately abridged"
    Overall

    I love Amelia Peabody books and tend to listen to them over and over. Barbara Rosenblat is a wonderful narrator, and extremely consistent. However, this one - unlike the others - was abridged, and it was done very poorly. I found myself wondering the motivations for all sorts of actions by the Emersons, and getting frustrated because I could not follow the story. In the end, I bought the book so that I could figure out the story.
    I don't think I'll ever buy another abridged audible book - please put this one out again - unabridged.

    In the spring of 1974, Calliope Stephanides, a student at a girls' school in Grosse Pointe, finds herself drawn to a chain-smoking, strawberry-blonde classmate with a gift for acting. The passion that furtively develops between them - along with Callie's failure to develop physically - leads Callie to suspect that she is not like other girls. In fact, she is not really a girl at all.

    Chris says: "Great Pulitzer Winning novel!"
    "Outstanding"
    Overall

    Rarely have I heard or read a book quite so compelling. I was drawn into the history of the family to the extent that I began to forget my own! And the narrator is extraordinarily talented. I'm not sure what I could listen to next that wouldn't pale by comparison.

    Stephanie Plum may not be the best bounty hunter in beautiful downtown Trenton, but she's pretty darn good at turning bad situations her way...and she always gets her man. Her cousin Vinnie (who's also her boss) has posted bail on Samuel Singh, an illegal immigrant. When the elusive Mr. Singh goes missing, Stephanie is on the case. In a race against time that takes her from the Jersey Turnpike to the Vegas Strip, Stephanie Plum is on the chase of her life.

    Maxine says: "hilarious"
    "The Best Yet"
    Overall

    I love all Evanovich's works, even the ones that are not quite her best. But this one very definitely is, with all the humor, mystery, and, of course, sexual tension you could want. Definitely one worth staying in your car and listening to when you should be doing something else.
