    So what if he's a bit older and usually regards a human female as dinner, not a dinner date? Yes, Roman Draganesti is a vampire, but a vampire who lost one of his fangs sinking his teeth into something he shouldn't have. Now he has one night to find a dentist before his natural healing abilities close the wound, leaving him a lopsided eater for all eternity. Things aren't going well for Shanna Whelan either... After witnessing a gruesome murder by the Russian mafia, she's next on their hit list. And her career as a dentist appears to be on a downward spiral because she's afraid of blood.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    some semi-literate teenager.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    she was incapable of pulling off a man's part and her women were stiff and /or valley girl.
    she tried her best but she can't handle accents very well: her scotsmen kept lapsing into russian.


    What character would you cut from How To Marry a Millionaire Vampire?

    the author. the females were all pretty simple minded and weak willed.


    Any additional comments?

    if this was a first attempt: nice try, but i don't want to pay for first trys.

    One of the greatest mystery thrillers ever written, Wilkie Collins's The Woman in White was a phenomenal best seller in the 1860s, achieving even greater success than works by Charles Dickens. Full of surprise, intrigue, and suspense, this vastly entertaining novel continues to enthrall audiences today.

    Would you try another book from Wilkie Collins and/or Josephine Bailey and Simon Prebble ?

    I'd rather pull my own 2 front teeth than go through another Wilkie Collins book.


    Has The Woman in White turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Its certainly turned me off the genre for a good long while. At least male authors of the period.


    Have you listened to any of Josephine Bailey and Simon Prebble ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The simple fact these narrators didn't even give a HINT of a yawn while suffering through all the surplus verbage entitles them not only to a chance to read to me again, they positively deserve medals for their efforts here.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I am very well acquainted with the writing style of this period: florid, loquacious, verbose.... but this? Collins made me want to scream. Collins made even the "heroine" female lead so insipid as to show her as barely conscious of her surroundings and helpless, timid, .....vapid.
    The turns the story took were always apparent beforehand; the ending no surprise.
    Bummer bummer bummer.

    A smashing, award-winning debut novel that introduces Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper. Charley sees dead people. That’s right, she sees dead people. And it’s her job to convince them to “go into the light”. But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (i.e. murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she’s been having about an Entity who has been following her all her life...and it turns out he might not be dead after all.
