    It's May 1st and in Wisconsin that means the daffodils and hyacinths are poking up their heads. Unfortunately, it also means they may freeze their little buds off. The Perfect Spring Storm arrives without warning or so it seems to Maggy Thorsen, co-owner of the Brookhills coffeehouse Uncommon Grounds. Trapped by the storm which cuts off electricity and downs phone lines, Maggy ventures into the service corridor that connects Uncommon Grounds to the rest of the mall, looking for sustenance beyond espresso and pastries.

    What made the experience of listening to Brewed, Crude and Tattooed the most enjoyable?

    The series is well written and engaging...a really good listen that is amusing and fast paced.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This book was a little different since they were snowed in the shopping center most of the time.


    What about Karen Savage’s performance did you like?

    Ms. Savage's narration is one of the best that I have listened to. She does an excellent job with the different characters and it is fascinating that she can make each voice recognizable.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I started the book while on the treadmill and had to force myself to stop after 45 minutes. Had to force myself to stop.

    The Jackson women, Indiana and Amanda, have always had each other. Though their bond is strong, mother and daughter are as different as night and day. Indiana, a beautiful holistic healer, is a free-spirited bohemian. Long divorced from Amanda's father, she's reluctant to settle down with either of the men who want her - Alan, the wealthy scion of one of San Francisco's elite families, and Ryan, an enigmatic, scarred former Navy SEAL. While her mom looks for the good in people, Amanda is fascinated by the dark side of human nature - as is her father, the SFPD's deputy chief of homicide.

    Any additional comments?

    I selected this book because I enjoyed an earlier book that she wrote. I was disappointed in this one, though I did like part of the story line. I liked the group of diverse kids from around the world working to solve murders but the author only half developed their characters. I thought that part could have been an interesting study; however, mother was an unreal, flat character. The one legged Navy Seal with the dog with metal teeth was like something thrown in from an action/fantasy story and his relationship with the mother just didn't fit with the rest of the storyline.

    In this ninth installment in the award-winning and New York Times best-selling Walt Longmire mystery series, the Wyoming sheriff follows his cowboy code of ethics in a religious range war that strikes a little too close to home.

    Story
    What would have made A Serpent's Tooth better?

    I'm not a prude but I found the undersecretary's constant use of the 'fucking' in everyday speech distracting to the story. The hero does not require constant cussing to show his competence. Really it is like the author thinks the only way to have a strong woman character is for her to use shocking language when no one else does...it is so distracting that I am not going to finish listening and try to return it.


    Has A Serpent's Tooth turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I won't try this author again


    What three words best describe George Guidall’s voice?

    very pleasant voice


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from A Serpent's Tooth?

    the story was slow moving and the hero's motivation was murky but that may be because I got a book in the middle of the series.
