    She's braved battlefields. She's stolen dispatches from under the noses of heads of state. She's played the worldly courtesan, the naive virgin, the refined British lady, even a Gypsy boy. But Annique Villiers, the elusive spy known as the Fox Cub, has finally met the one man she can't outwit... British spymaster Robert Grey must enter France and bring back the brilliant, beautiful - and dangerous - Fox Cub. His duty is to capture her and her secrets for England.

    Cole Clayborne had always walked a dark path and flirted with a life of crime. While his three brothers chose to settle into married life, Cole rebelliously refused to be tied down. Now, an elusive stranger draws him into a shadowy chase that will bring unexpected turns to his uncertain future - and may determine which side of the law the restless Cole favors. A tragic, heartbreaking loss drives U.S. Marshal Daniel Ryan on a quest for vengeance - and leads him to a beautiful young woman, the sole witness to a terrible crime.

    What made the experience of listening to Come the Spring the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed the characters and as the last of a series it was an impressive finale.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The beauty of this book is that all the characters major and minor stand out. I enjoyed both the good guys and the bad guys. I can visualize the villains and the heroes as well as all the supporting players (why I think it is a 5 star story).


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Mikael Naramore?

    Richard Ferrone who gave an excellent performance in the Recorded books release in 1998. I think a male narrator is a good choice but Naramore characters and emotional passages were very inconsistent. He over did female emotions and southern black dialect.

    When Fiona Macleod is sent by her guardian aunt and uncle to spend a London season with the Tribble sisters, it is something of a last resort. At nineteen, Fiona is a beautiful and wealthy Scottish heiress, yet for some mysterious reason, her several proposals of marriage over the past few years have all fallen through at the last moment. Amy and Effy Tribble, professional chaperones whose School for Manners has recently made them the talk of fashionable London society, are always short of cash and gladly take on Fiona as a new client.

    What disappointed you about Perfecting Fiona?

    Messy character development, the sisters were fun and believable in the first book of this series. In this book they come across as crude. The other characters were flat. They never really came to life.


    Has Perfecting Fiona turned you off from other books in this genre?

    M.C. Beaton is both a fun listen or read. I doubt that I will continue this series as an audiobook.
    I will continue listening to this genre


    Have you listened to any of Anne Flosnik’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Anne Flosnik is a wonderful performer. I have found some of my favorite books by searching her name.


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

    Excellent narrator

    When young Sarah Parrish takes a skiing vacation to Gulmarg, a resort nestled in the mountains above the fabled Vale of Kashmir, she anticipates an entertaining but uneventful stay. But when she discovers that the deaths of two in her party are the result of foul play, she finds herself entrusted with a mission of unforeseen importance. And when she leaves the ski slopes for the Waterwitch, she discovers to her horror that the killer will stop at nothing to prevent Sarah from piecing the puzzle together.

    What would have made Death in Kashmir better?

    The narrator has a plesant voice but no range. No character has a distinct voice. Men and women all sound the same which makes for a boring listen. I read M.M. Kaye's Death in mystery series and know them to be an exciting series. This narrator just put me to sleep.


    What didn’t you like about Shibani Ghosh’s performance?

    She was unable to create distinct characters. I think the best narrators are good actors who create and project a range of personalities.
