    No one can get close to John Medina, the CIA's legendary Black Ops specialist who works in the shadows of the government's deadliest missions. And no one knows the dangers better than Niema Burdock. A sharp, steely-nerved communications expert, Niema and her husband, Dallas, worked side by side with Medina on an explosive mission that went tragically wrong. Now Niema has withdrawn to a quiet Intelligence position, and a safe - if predictable - existence that has helped her heal her scars from five years ago. But now John Medina needs her....

    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Got no feel for the characters. Picturing John Medina as sweaty with a receding hairline, non-descript pencil pusher, perhaps with pop-bottle glasses didn’t help. Don’t think that was how he was supposed to come across, but that’s how I saw him due to the narration. Niema seemed like a whiner.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kate Forbes?

    Natalie Ross, Joyce Bean, Kirsten Potter, Julia Whelan.

    When a cop's body is found burned and decapitated, the last thing Andy Carpenter expected is for a stranger to waltz into his office and admit to the crime. For the wise-cracking millionaire defense attorney suffering from "lawyer's block", the case looks like a no-brainer...until the cops pick up another suspect: Andy's lead P.I., Laurie Collins, who happens to be the love of his life.

    What character would you cut from First Degree?

    Can't really cut Andy from the script, but the constant smart ass remarks and juvenile antics just wore on my nerves. Just could not finish this one. I was so hoping for a series that I could get hooked on, but this one is just not it for me.

    Whether dueling with new forensics or the local old boys' network, irreverent defense attorney Andy Carpenter always leaves them awed with his biting wit and winning fourth-quarter game plan. But the fun stops the day Andy's dad, Paterson, New Jersey's legendary ex-DA, drops dead in front of him at a game in Yankee Stadium.

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

    Yes I would. A good story and interesting characters


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Didn't have it all figures out, so I enjoyed they story right to the end.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Performance was not distracting, just took a bit to get used to the narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    Almost gave up on the book after the first hour ( a bit slow and I got bored), but glad I continued. Will go onto another Andy Carpenter book.

    Devin Lyle has recently returned to the Salem area, but her timing couldn't be worse. Soon after she moved into the eighteenth-century cabin she inherited from her great-aunt Mina - her "crazy" great-aunt, who spoke to the dead - a woman was murdered nearby. Craig Rockwell - known as Rocky - is a new member of the Krewe of Hunters, the FBI's team of paranormal investigators. He never got over finding a friend dead in the woods. Now another body's been found in those same woods, not far from the home of a woman named Devin Lyle.

    Would you try another book from Heather Graham and/or Luke Daniels?

    I've listened to all the books in this series, not sure i will continue.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Too much like too many of the other krewe books. The least interesting was the attitude of the Devon character. There was very little to like about her and didn't feel a whole lot more for the Rocky character. Why Rocky would have been interested in Devon is beyond me. Devon was hostile and obnoxious through almost the entire book.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Luke Daniels?

    Since Luke Daniels has narrated all but one in the series, I would have thought he would have remembered that Jenna Duffy is Irish, and has always had an accent in all of the other books. This one, who knows who she sounded like, but no accent! How hard is it to go back and review a little bit of information?


    Could you see The Hexed being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I certainly hope not

    Cordelia Kane has always been a daddy's girl - her father raised her alone after her mother died in a car crash when Cordelia was just two years old. So when he has a serious heart attack, Cordelia is devastated, and the emotion is only intensified by the confusion she feels when he reveals the shocking truth about her mother. Cordelia can't suppress her curiosity about the woman who gave birth to her, and when she discovers the answers to her questions lie in Sydney, Australia, she travels there to get them.

    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Happy to have the trilogy completed. Had just re-listened to Fire and Ice, and wondered when we'd find out about Cordi and Aiden.


    What aspect of Tanya Eby’s performance would you have changed?

    Tanya Eby does an adequate job, but the male voices and accents were not the best.


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

    Yeah, I would have like to have listened to this all in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    Didn't agree with some of the negative reviews I read before listening to the book.

    For more than 300 years, Bluff House has sat above Whiskey Beach, guarding its shore - and its secrets. But to Eli Landon, it’s home.… A Boston lawyer, Eli has weathered an intense year of public scrutiny and police investigations after being accused of - but never arrested for - the murder of his soon-to-be-ex wife. He finds sanctuary at Bluff House, even though his beloved grandmother is in Boston recuperating from a nasty fall. Abra Walsh is always there, though.

    Would you ever listen to anything by Nora Roberts again?

    Yes I have older books/audible that I have re-listened to and probably will listen to again. May not buy any new books again, unless abridged


    Did Luke Daniels do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Luke Daniels is the only reason I continued to listen to this book, he is always reliable.

But when a man is murdered in the alley behind her place, she's dismayed when his spirit appears, too, asking for help. FBI agent Dallas Samson has a passionate interest in the murder, since the victim's a colleague whose death is connected to the smuggling ring known as Los Lobos - the wolves.

    What did you like best about The Cursed? What did you like least?

    Not sure the Bone Island Trilogy should have been mixed in with the Krewe. Almost felt like the writer is running out of new ideas.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Heather Graham? Why or why not?

    probably


    Did Luke Daniels do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Luke Daniels is pretty reliable as a narrator, but didn't really stay consistent with voices for Kelsey and Logan. Since he did not narrate the Bone Island Trilogy, I suppose he could not be expected to make Liam and David and Katie sound the same.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a reliable book to listen to, but very predictable. Had it figured out fairly quickly, but still enjoyed it.

    Ten years after disappearing from Antietam, Maryland, the bad boy has come home. Cleaned up and successful now - though still dangerously good-looking - Rafe MacKade sets the town on fire…and tongues wagging. Not even lovely newcomer Regan Bishop is immune to his charms. Though Regan claims to not want to get involved with a rebel, Rafe's pretty sure that her reaction to their sizzling kisses suggests otherwise.

    Yes, going to listen to all four brothers stories. Some of my favorite books are Nora Roberts books. Witness, Montana Skies, The Search.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Luke Daniels?

    Luke Daniels does a decent job narrating, he is reliable, so I have listened to many books he has narrated.


    Any additional comments?

    Laughed out loud several times, and altho the story was somewhat predictable.... I enjoyed listening and downloaded the other MacKade books.

Now, in Any Other Name, Walt is sinking into high-plains winter discontent when his former boss, Lucian Conally, asks him to take on a mercy case in an adjacent county. Detective Gerald Holman is dead and Lucian wants to know what drove his old friend to take his own life.

    So similar to all of the other books. His daughter needs him and once again he's not really available


    Did George Guidall do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Disappointed with Lucian voice. Since George Guidall has narrated all the Longmire books, you would think the voice would be the same. Sandy didn't sound the same either. Beginning of the book, Walt and Lucian sounded the same and I had a difficult time figuring out which person was supposed to be talking.

    If you’ve listened to books by Heather Graham before, how does this one compare?

    Not as good as the first in the series, and that is not saying much. Not up to par with some of Ms Grahams better books.


    Did Natalie Ross do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    yes she does a pretty good job differentiating the different characters.
