    The story begins in 1962. On a rocky patch of the sun-drenched Italian coastline, a young innkeeper, chest-deep in daydreams, looks out over the incandescent waters of the Ligurian Sea and spies an apparition: a tall, thin woman, a vision in white, approaching him on a boat. She is an actress, he soon learns, an American starlet, and she is dying. And the story begins again today, half a world away, when an elderly Italian man shows up on a movie studio's back lot - searching for the mysterious woman he last saw at his hotel decades earlier.

    Story

    I don't know what drew me to this book but I am so glad I took the time to listen. Loved the story and the narration. It really drew me in. I couldn't wait for it to end so but now I can't wait to listen again. I don't often (never) listen to books more than once really but this one may be the one I listen to again. I highly recommend it.

    Story

    I almost didn't download this book because the reviews about the narration were so terrible. But I am really glad I did! I really like this series and was concerned that I would hate this book because of a male narrator. Well I disagree with previous reviews and felt that having a male narrator was appropriate and worked for this book. It's interesting too because normally I don't like male narrators for any of the books I listen too. But since this book is so male centric I think it really worked well to have a male doing all the male voices. To me the narration on this book was so much better than book 3. I hated the narration on that book and couldn't wait for it to be over. So if you read the reviews and don't give this book a try because of a male narrator I think you will be missing out.

    Serena Kelley is an archaeologist and treasure hunter - and a woman with a secret. Since she was seven, she's been the keeper of a powerful charm that grants her health and immortality... as long as she stays a virgin. But Serena isn't all that innocent. And when a dangerously handsome stranger brings her to the brink of ecstasy, she wonders if she's finally met the one man she cannot resist.

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I would have loved for the first narrator to have read all the books. It's so hard to keep changing narrators and have the voices of the characters changing so dramatically. I love Cassandra Campbell and started listening to the series mainly because she was the narrator. Now I am hooked on the series but I think I am going to switch to reading them rather than listening.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the progression in the series and really enjoy characters and the content of the story.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Renee Raudman???s performances?

    maybe.


    You didn???t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    the book itself is great.

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    This is the first time I have taken the time to write a review about a book I have listed too. I loved this book! Loved the story and the narration both. Can't wait to hear more.
