    Stacy Justice is your average small-town reporter...who just so happens to be a witch. She’s never had the time or patience to mess around with the magic her grandmother and great-aunts are into, even though Grandma says Stacy has a higher calling. Right now, Stacy has stories to cover, her cousin Cinnamon’s bar to help run, and her cute cop boyfriend and flatulent Great Dane to keep her company. But when someone sets Cinnamon’s bar ablaze - almost killing Stacy in the process - the green-eyed redhead will have to embrace her inner witch after all.

    What did you love best about Opal Fire?

    The story was very entertaining and I'm a sucker for a story that has an animal as part of the story (Stacy's pet dog). Not only was it comical in places, but it had a good mystery at the heart of the story. Her family provided several laugh out loud moments and added to the story. This was a cleverly written who-done-it, without getting bogged down in the details. It was a very easy listen and the narrator was very good. I look forward to the other two books in the series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I really liked Stacy's character and her relationship with her dog and family. Even though she was a witch, that was not the main focus of the story. She is a very normal type of person who just happens to have magical abilities and a dysfunctional family.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are looking for a lighthearted, fun mystery with several quirky characters and a strong female lead character who is very likeable, then this is the story for you.

    Waverly Bryson is a successful businesswoman in her late 20s who almost has it all: a dream job in sports PR, two best friends, and a bar where everybody knows her name. What she doesn’t have is a ring on her finger. And after being ditched at the altar, she’s in no hurry to get one. Besides, plenty of other issues keep her busy, including her wayward father, a new rival at work, and an ever-nagging fear that her life is not turning out as she thought it would...or should.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Perfect on Paper to be better than the print version?

    didn't read the print, but really enjoyed the audio version


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Waverly, she always got herself into a situation and how she got out of it or what she did as a result of it made me laugh out loud a few times. Her honey do notes were an additional source of entertainment.


    Any additional comments?

    this was a very fun book and halfway through listening to it i had to go out and get the rest of the series. it is a very lighthearted romantic comedy that had very likeable characters and some characters that we have all encountered in our lives and prejudged just to find out they weren't really what we had made them out to be. if you are looking for a quick read that causes you to have some laugh out loud moments all tied up into a romance, then this is the book for you.

    What did you love best about The Sisters Grimm?

    I love these books. They are pure fun and can be enjoyed by adults too. They are brought to life by L. J. Ganser who does a wonderful job creating so many different characters that you know who the character is as soon as you hear their "voice". Each book contains a mystery that needs to be solved while furthering along an overall story of the Sisters Grimm. There were many laugh out loud moments that are signature to this series, and the idea of bringing together so many fairy tale characters from my youth and weaving a series of entertaining stories involving them all is really brilliantly done.


    What does L. J. Ganser bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    all the voices and accents. he pulls you into the story from the first sentence.


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

    yes, and i wanted to listen to it again and i will.


    Any additional comments?

    i recommend this series to anyone looking for an entertaining, lighthearted escape from their everyday life.

    The worst part of being dead is that there’s nothing left to live for. No more kisses. No more secrets. No more gossip. It’s enough to kill a girl all over again. But I’m about to get something no one else does - an encore performance, thanks to Emma, the long-lost twin sister I never even got to meet. Now Emma’s desperate to know what happened to me. And the only way to figure it out is to be me - to slip into my old life and piece it all together. But can she laugh at inside jokes with my best friends?

    Natalie Catania says: "Fantastic!"
    "Turns out the twin really is evil."

    What made the experience of listening to The Lying Game the most enjoyable?

    not knowing for sure who was friend or foe.


    What did you like best about this story?

    the dialogue. i liked getting both emma's perspective and then sutton's thoughts and how she felt looking back on her life.


    Which character – as performed by Cassandra Morris – was your favorite?

    toss up between emma and sutton as they both played sutton


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

    being mistaken for a rich, beautiful girl who has it all is every girl's dream. too bad she was the queen of mean, appears to be dead and i might be next.


    Any additional comments?
