    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.

    I listened to this book out of sequence and fell in love with the characters and the narrator. I listened to the first six books as fast as I could....now I'm sorry! More please!!!

    In this irresistibly imagined belowstairs answer to Pride and Prejudice, the servants take center stage. Sarah, the orphaned housemaid, spends her days scrubbing the laundry, polishing the floors, and emptying the chamber pots for the Bennet household. But there is just as much romance, heartbreak, and intrigue downstairs at Longbourn as there is upstairs. When a mysterious new footman arrives, the orderly realm of the servants’ hall threatens to be completely, perhaps irrevocably, upended.

    Story

    This book borrows the situations and characters from Jane Austen but that's where the similarities end. This rendition is full of adjectives but slow on action. Unfortunate, because the concept was intriguing.

    A terrible fire in a wealthy suburban home leaves a married couple dead and Detective Lindsay Boxer and her partner Rich Conklin searching for clues. And after California's golden boy, Michael Campion, has been missing for a month, there finally seems to be a lead in his case - a very devastating lead. As fire after fire consumes couples in wealthy, comfortable homes, Lindsay and the Murder Club must race to find the arsonists responsible and get to the bottom of Michael Campion's disappearance.

    Story

    The quality of WMC is slipping. I continue to listen in hopes that it will improve AND I want to know what happens to Lindsay. I suggest that Patterson should take more time on each book instead of cranking out book after book. Books 1 and 4 were super thrillers....wish the others were that good.

  • Murder on the Orient Express: A Hercule Poirot Mystery

    Savor one of the most clever of Christie's suspenseful classics. An American businessman is stabbed to death aboard a luxury train, the Orient Express, snowbound in the middle of Europe. Nothing escapes the eagle eye and quick intelligence of the great Hercule Poirot, and clues abound. Sorting through a dozen perfectly respectable passengers, all suspects, Poirot is tenacious in his pursuit of the truth.

    Story

    David Suchet's normal, and rather lovely, voice is quite different than the voice I identify with him, that of Poirot. His excellent voices helped to bring the many characters to life....

    Movies made of the Orient Express generally leave out a lot of the book's setup, so it took me awhile to warm up to the story itself...until they reached the train. After that, Suchet and Christie provided me with many enjoyable hours of sleuthing (and I already knew who did it!)
