    The picturesque Cotwsold village of Winter Parva has decided to warm the post-Christmas season by roasting a pig in the town square. Agatha, always one for a good roasting, organizes an outing to enjoy the merriment. But as the rotary spit is placed over a bed of fiery charcoals and the pig is carried toward its final resting place, Agatha realizes that things are not as they seem... Stop!" she screams suddenly. The "pig," in fact, is Gary Beech, a policeman not exactly beloved by the good people of the village. Although Agatha has every intention of leaving matters to the police....

    New York Times best-selling author Margaret George captures history's most enthralling queen-as she confronts rivals to her throne and to her heart. One of today's premier historical novelists, George dazzles here as she tackles her most difficult subject yet: the legendary Elizabeth Tudor, queen of enigma - the Virgin Queen who had many suitors; the victor of the Armada who hated war; the gorgeously attired, jewel-bedecked woman who pinched pennies.

    Roberta says: "A different view of Elizabeth"
    "A very remarkable Queen"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, if you like this time period you will like this book. I read a lot of historical fiction and this one is up there in the top 5 reads.


    What about Kate Reading’s performance did you like?

    The reading was good I forgot she was reading. I was sure i was just listening to the Queen talking.


    If you could take any character from Elizabeth I out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Elizabeth, she was a fascinating person.

    New York is the book that millions of Rutherfurd's American fans have been waiting for. A brilliant mix of romance, war, family drama, and personal triumphs, it gloriously captures the search for freedom and prosperity at the heart of our nation's history.

    Ever since Damon Wilder sought refuge in Sea Haven, he's heard the same breathless rumor pass the lips of nearly every local in the sleepy coastal town. Even the wind seems to whisper her name - a reverie so powerfully suggestive that it carries the curious Damon to Sarah's cliff top home, and seeks to shelter him there. But Damon has not arrived alone. Two men have tracked him to Sea Haven, and into the shadows of Drake House, where Sarah hides her own secrets.

    Book Professor says: "Good Choice for Narrator"
    "warm and cozy with romance on top"

    What did you love best about Magic in the Wind?

    it's a wonderful romance with a little twist. The Drake sisters have the feel of real people.


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

    yes this was a one sitting book if I could. I listen in the car the way to work and the way home and tried to drive slower so I could listen to more of it.


    Any additional comments?

    the story is really good the sex could be toned down a little, but overall it was a very very good read.
