    In 1890, a man collapses near the Piazza della Santa Carita in Naples, Italy. Strangers manage to revive him, but he is unable to speak. Police carry him to the nearest hospital, where he is not admitted because he has no money or identification. Frantically trying to communicate, he scribbles notes in ancient Greek and German that would have told the world about a discovery of immense importance - if anyone had read them.

    Lórien says: "The best Kuzneski yet"
    "very enjoyable"
    Overall

    This is a great travel book, not too girly for the guys, enough likable charecters for the girls and a fast paced mystery for all.

    At age 26, Maarten Troost decided to pack up his flip-flops and move to a remote South Pacific island. The idea of dropping everything and moving to the ends of the earth was irresistibly romantic. But he should have known better.

    Ever since Damon Wilder sought refuge in Sea Haven, he's heard the same breathless rumor pass the lips of nearly every local in the sleepy coastal town. Even the wind seems to whisper her name - a reverie so powerfully suggestive that it carries the curious Damon to Sarah's cliff top home, and seeks to shelter him there. But Damon has not arrived alone. Two men have tracked him to Sea Haven, and into the shadows of Drake House, where Sarah hides her own secrets.

    Rebecca says: "Good Choice for Narrator"
    "Start of a great series"

    What did you love best about Magic in the Wind?

    If you haven’t met the Drake sisters, this a the first book you'll want to read. Don't be concerned if you can't keep the sisters straight because you will get a chance to know each sister as the series continues. Lot's of magic and mystical happenings set with characters you will enjoy. Be aware that there is graphic (almost pornographic) sex in some of the later books. This one is pretty tame - especially since it is abridged.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish that an unabridged version had been an option.

    Alexandria Houton would sacrifice anything, even her life, to protect her orphaned little brother. But when both encountered unspeakable evil in the swirling San Francisco mists, Alex could only cry to heaven for their deliverance. Out of the darkness swooped Aidan Savage, a golden being more powerful, more mysterious than any other creature of the night.

    Heather says: "Loved this book"
    "couldn't finish it"
    Overall

    Come on - just because the name has gold in it you are not allowed to use the word golden at least once in every five minutes of reading. If you choose to begin this book, beware of the overuse of golden, liquid and velvet. If that doesn't give you enough clues, know that yes, there is a thin plot but it creeps so slowly that you will have 15 to 20 minutes of "feelings" and not one bit of plot advancement. I rarely give up on a book - but I just could not take any more of the insipid dialog or the hero's golden stare, his liquid voice that was like velvet or the heroine's quickened pulse.

    In a crumbling, isolated house at the foot of Mount Kanchenjunga lives an embittered old judge. He only wants to retire in peace, but then his orphaned granddaughter, Sai, arrives on his doorstep. The judge's chatty cook watches over her, but his thoughts are mostly with his son, Biju, who is hop-scotching from one New York restaurant job to another. A novel of depth and emotion, Desai's second, long-awaited novel fulfills the grand promise established by her first.

    Bob says: "Gorgeous prose but grim"
    "too much loss"
    Overall

    What a sad, depressing tale. I am sorry that I spent money on this one and sorrier still that I spent 12 hours listening to it
