    Turned into a vampire against her will, 28-year-old Merit found her way into the dark circle of Chicago's vampire underground, where she learned there was more to supernaturals than met the eye - and more supernaturals than the public ever imagined. And not all the secrets she learned were for sharing - among humans or inhumans. Now Merit is on the hunt, charging across the stark American Midwest, tailing a rogue supernatural intent on stealing an ancient artifact that could unleash catastrophic evil on the world. But Merit is also the prey.

    Not sure if it was the new reader that thru off the rhythm of the seriers but on first listen it seems to be a combination of both the story development and the reader. Neither were as good as the previous installments but still a decent listen.

    Ever since she was a child, Ivy has been gripped by visions of strange realms just beyond her own. But when her sister goes missing, Ivy discovers the truth is far worse - her hallucinations are real, and her sister is trapped in a parallel realm. And the one person who believes her is the dangerously attractive guy who's bound by an ancient legacy to betray her. Adrian might have turned his back on those who raised him, but that doesn't mean he can change his fate, no matter how strong a pull he feels toward Ivy.

    Story

    First,I love both the the writer and the narrator; however, I was very disappointed in this book. Most of the dialogue seemed to have come from her other books. It wasn't so bad that I wouldn't buy the next book in the series and hopefully it will be more original.

    When Nina Linden is hired to landscape a private island off the New England coast, she sees it as her chance to rebuild her failing business after being cheated by her unscrupulous ex. She never expects that her new client, software mogul Deacon Whitney, would see more in her than just a talented gardener. Deacon has paid top dollar to the crews he’s hired to renovate the desolate Whitney estate - he had to, because the bumps, thumps, and unexplained sightings of ghostly figures in 19th-century dress are driving workers away faster than he can say “Boo.”

    Usually, I adore this pair but the story was flat and soooo predictable. It reminded me of those dime store novellas with interchangeable character names. But I would still get her next book...everyone is entitled to faulter now and again.

    Most girls might think twice before getting engaged to someone like Reyes Farrow - but Charley Davidson is not most girls. She’s a paranormal private eye and grim-reaper-in-training who’s known to be a bit of a hell-raiser, especially after a few shots of caffeine. Her beloved Reyes may be the only begotten son of evil, but he’s dark and sultry and deeply sexy and everything Charley could hope for. Really. But when the FBI file on Reyes’ childhood happens to land into her lap, she can’t help herself: She opens it...and then the real fun begins.

    I often wonder how long a series can go without just being filler; but I still love this story line. It is fresh, interesting, and you can't help but love the characters.

    FBI Special Agent Kate O’Hare is known for her fierce dedication and discipline on the job, chasing down the world’s most wanted criminals and putting them behind bars. Her boss thinks she is tenacious and ambitious; her friends think she is tough, stubborn, and maybe even a bit obsessed. And while Kate has made quite a name for herself for the past five years the only name she’s cared about is Nicolas Fox - an international crook she wants in more ways than one.

    If you enjoyed watching Leverage and White Collar on Television, and you don't mind that those plot scenarios are regurgitated then you will love this book. Sadly, I do and was disappointed.

But there’s no rest for the weary ghost busters. M. J.’s ex comes to her for help - his fiance’s brother Luke seems haunted by a sinister spirit.

    Story

    What happened? All the things I love about Victoria Laurie's books was MIA in this one. Even rhe narrator, who is usually fantastic, is off. Her voices for the characters all seem to run together and there are just minor tries to add appropriate voice inflictions. Also, MJs character was not the strong stabilizing woman in this book. She was manipulation rationalize and little character development all the was around. I am still a fan and will get the next book and hope this almost complete waste of time was a fluke.

    Lauren is downtown Chicago's youngest elite realtor. She's also a witch. She must be - the fetching spell for Witches' Chat isn't supposed to make mistakes. So says the woman who coded the spell, at least. The tall, dark, and handsome guy sent to assess her is a witch too (and no, that doesn't end the way you might think). What he finds in Lauren will change lives, mess with a perfectly good career, and require lots of ice cream therapy.

    I have all of Debora Geary's books and love them all. With almost all of the books out today, violence and near death are the norm. With these books, they are about family, fun, and solving problems without near and bloody death around every corner. The characters are like people you would know and quirky. GREAT easy reads.

    Novelist Anne George injects murder, mayhem, and laughs into her popular mysteries. Nominated for an Agatha Award, this hilarious tale of two “60 something” sisters reveals the deadly consequences of a hasty real estate purchase. Retired Alabama school teacher Patricia Anne thinks her older sister, flamboyant Mary Alice, has lost her cotton-pickin’ mind. On a whim, Mary Alice bought the Skoot ’n’ Boot, the local country western night spot where she and her boyfriend hang out. Mary Alice insists it will be easy to run the club - until the previous owner is found executed.

    Info is not bad as a review; however, not all the chapters of the book are included in this audio version. The narrator is awful, but if you can stand the stoic reading...you might find it helpful. Again, not all chapters are included in this recording...There are 27 chapters in the book and only 21 chapters reviewed.

    Five days after Owen Zastava Pitt pushed his insufferable boss out of a 14th story window, he woke up in the hospital with a scarred face, an unbelievable memory, and a job offer. It turns out that monsters are real. All the things from myth, legend, and B-movies are out there, waiting in the shadows. Some of them are evil, and some are just hungry. Monster Hunter International is the premier eradication company in the business. And now Owen is their newest recruit.
