    A prim, well-bred gentlewoman, Sara Fielding is a writer who puts pen to paper to create dreams. But now curiosity is luring her from the shelter of her country cottage into the dangerous world of Derek Craven – handsome, tough, and tenacious – and the most exciting man Sara has ever met.

    "Great book!"
    Overall

    Great characters and the story is mostly believable. I love that Derek is far from perfect & doesn't magically transform into something he isn't. Of course, it does have an over the top finale that seem to be commonplace in Kleypas novels, but still a great read. Narration is enjoyable as well.

    Maggie Concannon is a glassmaker whose exquisite works are more than mere objects of beauty: they are reflections of her own true nature. One man has seen the soul in her art, and vows to help this complex woman build a lucrative career.

    "Predictable Story, Great for Light Reading"
    Overall

    Narrator speaks fairly quickly, but does a fine job with all the accents & gives you the feel that the characters are indeed Irish. The storyline was fairly predictable. Also, it did seem like a lot of focus was placed on the main female character dealing with her emotional issues & less on the actual relationship development between the two.

    In a New York City fifty years in the future, Detective Eve Dallas tracks down those who break the law - including the ones sworn to uphold it. Eve Dallas and her partner, Peabody, are following up on a brutal, senseless crime - an elderly grocery owner killed by three stoned punks for nothing more than kicks and snacks. And for the first time, Peabody is primary detective on the case, which means she has to get used to a new level of authority and responsibility. Good thing she learned the ropes from a master like Eve. But after rounding up the perps, Peabody stumbles upon a much trickier situation.

    "Blah, blah, blah -"
    Overall

    I love most of the "in death" series, but this book is just to put it simply...boring. Truly disappointing. I just gave up on my second attempt to listen to it in hopes that maybe I just didn't get it the first time. No such luck. The majority of this story is listening to Eve or other sub characters go on & on & on about one topic or another. No real action, no real mystery, no real romance. If you enjoy listening to Eve go off on her long winded, self-righteous tangents than this would be a book for you.
