    Engaged to the charming and seductive Greg Anders, Sara Shaw is happily anticipating her wedding in Edilean, Virginia. The date has been set, the flowers ordered, even her heirloom dress is ready. But just three weeks before the wedding, Greg gets a telephone call during the night and leaves without explanation. Two days later, a man climbs up through a trapdoor in the floor of Sara’s apartment, claiming that he is the brother of her best friend and that he’s moving in. While Mike Newland is indeed telling the truth about his identity, his reason for being there reaches far deeper.

    Fourteen-year-old Vega Jane lives in the village of Wormwood, where life is nasty, brutish, and short. Villagers have been told that there is nothing outside of Wormwood except for the Quag, a foul forest filled with terrifying beasts. No one comes, no one goes, and Wormwood has stayed this way for generations. Until Vega's friend Quentin Herms disappears. Quentin leaves Vega a secret message hinting that there's a way out of Wormwood and something extraordinary on the other side.

    Disillusioned journalist Tom Langdon must get from Washington to L.A. in time for Christmas. Forced to take the train across the country because of a slight "misunderstanding" at airport security, he begins a journey of self-discovery and rude awakenings, mysterious goings-on and thrilling adventures, screwball escapades and holiday magic.

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

    I have already done so. It was a fun listen.Made me want to jump on the nearest train and head across the country.I really enjoy Baldacci books, this was a little different, more humor, less murder and mayhem.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked them all. The characterizations were well done.


    What does Tim Matheson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voice interpretations gave me mental images of the characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really

    Story
    What did you like best about P is for Peril? What did you like least?

    The story is interesting, I didn't solve it immediately.
    Too much description. Felt like it was written to make it easy to cast for a movie. Character description is great, but the weather report, hair style and color, clothes, room descriptions etc. were a bit over done.


    What three words best describe Judy Kaye’s voice?

    Raspy,


    Could you see P is for Peril being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    As above, a movie or TV show seem to be the author's aim.


    Any additional comments?

    No real memorable moments. Classic Sue Grafton.
