  • Her Royal Spyness: A Royal Spyness Mystery

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 9 mins)
    • By Rhys Bowen
    • Narrated By Katherine Kellgren

    Georgie, aka Lady Victoria Georgiana Charlotte Eugenie, cousin of King George V of England, is penniless and trying to survive on her own as an ordinary person in London in 1932. So far she has managed to light a fire and boil an egg... She's gate-crashed a wedding... She's making money by secretly cleaning houses... And she's been asked to spy for Her Majesty the Queen.

    Coffee Lover says: "Joy, Joy, Joy!"
    "Just couldn't finish it."
    Would you try another book from Rhys Bowen and/or Katherine Kellgren?

    I would not listen to another book read by KK . I may be giving the reader a bad rap but the changing of the voices, the accents that may have been required for the story just grated on me too much to enjoy the story. I love listening to audible books but not this one.

    What could Rhys Bowen have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I think there was a story there but I just couldn't continue listening until they finally go to it.

    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I think there is a storyline that I may enjoy, but after more than halfway through the book, they hadn't really gotten to it. I think I would have prefered reading the book, instead of listening. I skipped several chapters just to get the story moving along faster but still ended up giving up.

  • Close Your Eyes

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 41 mins)
    • By Iris Johansen, Roy Johansen
    • Narrated By Elisabeth Rodgers
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    A music therapist who thrives on helping others, Kendra Michaels cherishes the ordinary life she has achieved after stem cell surgery restored her sight. The skills she perfected during those sightless years - the ability to pick up the most subtle audio, olfactory, and tactile cues in the world around her - coupled with her laser-sharp mind - have made her a uniquely potent observer and problem solver. Kendra’s uncanny way of connecting the dots is as baffling to law enforcement as it is legendary.

    Yvonne says: "Loved it!"
    "Main character is a little annoying"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I did like the story line but the main character had a little bit of a persecution complex. Everyone is trying to "use" her because of her "gift". They want to make her be part of the investigation. She’s not too likable despite her overcoming a disability. I did like hearing the observation skills on things that everyone else would have probably overlooked. I’m not sure I would buy another book about this character.

    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Another murder mystery

    Which scene was your favorite?

    Main character describing what was out of place in the victim's apt

    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Not sure. It would depend on who plays the main person

  • Eclipse: The Twilight Saga, Book 3

    • UNABRIDGED (16 hrs and 26 mins)
    • By Stephenie Meyer
    • Narrated By Ilyana Kadushin
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    As Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob - knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella has one more decision to make: life or death. But which is which?

    Kirsty says: "Continues to Please"
    "I loved everything about this book!"
    Where does Eclipse rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the to 10.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Edward is my favorite. He trys so hard to be a good person. You can feel his struggle to want to be with Bella but knows he shouldn't for her own good. It's a sweet love story even with vampires & werewolves.

    What about Ilyana Kadushin’s performance did you like?

    She easy to listen to. I'll watch for other books read by her.

    Any additional comments?

    I've listened to all of the Twight books and like them much better than the movies.

  • The Girl Who Played with Fire: The Millennium Trilogy, Book 2

    • UNABRIDGED (18 hrs and 38 mins)
    • By Stieg Larsson
    • Narrated By Simon Vance
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Mikael Blomkvist, crusading journalist and publisher of the magazine Millennium, has decided to publish a story exposing an extensive sex trafficking operation between Eastern Europe and Sweden, implicating well-known and highly placed members of Swedish society, business, and government. On the eve of publication, the two reporters responsible for the story are brutally murdered.

    David says: "irritatingly engrossing"
    "Loved it."

    I was glad to see a sequel to the the The Girl with the Dragon tatoo. I didn't want to stop listening. Would recommend it to other audiobook listeners.
