    Set in the Regency period, this is a classic tale of misunderstood love and an arranged marriage.

    Janet says: "Excellent Narration"
    "A Civil Contract"
    Overall

    Georgette Heyer's books are wonderful with accurate details of the Regency period and rich with quirky characters. This book is a delightful read and yet not a "silly" book. It is light-hearted and yet just as good literature as a Jane Austen. The herione is not the usual beauty, rather she is dumpy and plain - but you will love her just the same. Not my favorite Georgette Heyer, but enjoyable and very well read - a pleasure to listen.

    Larry McMurtry's American epic, set in the late 19th century, tells the story of a cattle drive from Texas to Montana, a drive that represents not only a daring foolhardy adventure, but a part of the American Dream for everyone involved.

    Richard Delman says: "A masterpiece. An epic western story."
    "Better than any movie"
    Overall

    I love everything Larry McMurtry writes and of course this is one of his best. His characters are so developed and enjoyable and this narrator caught their personalities and his accents were great. I have read the book a couple of times, also watched the movie, but this telling made knowing what happens irrelevant - it was wonderful hours spent.

    Cotton Malone retired from the high-risk world of elite operatives to lead the life of a rare-book dealer. But his quiet existence is shattered when he receives an anonymous e-mail: "You have something I want. You're the only person on earth who knows where to find it. If I don't hear from you, you will be childless." His ex-wife confirms that their teenage son has been kidnapped, and it becomes clear that those responsible will stop at nothing to get what they want: the lost library of Alexandria.

    Glenda says: "Very Entertaining"
    "Excellent, smart, complicated"
    Overall

    I enjoyed this book very much; the narrator was excellent. The story is complicated and it is sometimes confusing when the reader switches characters. This book is very similar to Dan Brown books, so if you like those, you will enjoy this -- maybe more.

    Alice Verney is a young woman intent on achieving her dreams. Having left Restoration England in the midst of a messy scandal, she has been living in Louis XIV's Baroque, mannered France for two years. Now she is returning home to England and anxious to re-establish herself quickly. First, she will regain her former position as a maid of honor to Charles II's queen. Then she will marry the most celebrated duke of the Restoration, putting herself in a position to attain power she's only dreamed of.

    Kareen says: "Outstanding"
    "Dark Angels"
    Overall

    Karleen Koen's first novel "Through a Glass Darkly is one of my favorite reads, over the years I have enjoyed it several times. Her next novel was the third part of the trilogy and was almost boring so I was unsure of how "Dark Angels" would be. I was thrilled! This first part of the huge historical drama kept me anxious to keep listening. The details of the English court seemed quite accurate and once again I found myself caught up in the personal lives of the characters and left wanting more. The reader was excellent. If you like "costume dramas" and the works of Jane Austen, Georgette Heyer, George Elliot, etc., you will love this book.
