    On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me—well, actually, my true love, Darcy O’Mara, is spending a feliz navidad tramping around South America. Meanwhile, Mummy is holed up in a tiny village called Tiddleton-under-Lovey with that droll Noel Coward! And I’m snowed in at Castle Rannoch with my bumbling brother, Binky, and sourpuss sister-in-law, Fig.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Edit out most of the first hour. It was pretty boring. I had to force myself to continue listening. And there were too many murders. I would also have recorded the section containing the recipes and game instructions that were part of the print book. I feel a little cheated.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Rhys Bowen? Why or why not?

    I might try reading the first book in the series to see if that would hook me into reading more. Most people praise the first couple of books.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scenes with her grandfather and with her maid were the most amusing, but nothing stands out as a favorite.


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

    I'd probably watch it if it were on TV, but I wouldn't pay to see it.


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator is fantastic. Her performance was the only thing that kept me listening until the end of the book. I will definitely look for more books with this narrator.

  • The 7th Month: A Detective D. D. Warren Story

    Story
    (2010)

    In Lisa Gardner’s first-ever short story following thirteen bestselling novels, The 7th Month takes listeners between the books and into a day in the life of Boston Detective D. D. Warren. In her seventh month of pregnancy, D.D. should be taking it easy. Instead, she accepts a small consulting role on the set of a serial killer film shooting in Boston.

    Kristi says: "A great short detective mystery!"

    Would you listen to The 7th Month again? Why?

    Probably. It's an easy listen, well paced story, and nicely performed by Kirsten Potter.


    What did you like best about this story?

    There is a nice rhythm to the writing. It was very enjoyable to listen to, nothing too heavy. It was a good introduction to the characters, and made me hope there will be more to come.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the would-be actor showed up on set as a Vampire ax murderer.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Since this was a short story, there really wasn't enough time to build up much real drama.


    Any additional comments?

    I really dislike the current fashion of the publisher playing their music over the narration. It distracts from the story, makes it difficult to hear what is being said, and is disrespectful to the performer.
