Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met.

    Story

    I starting listening and I was intrigued from the beginning. If you like supernatural/fantisy genre, you will like this book. What I like the most was the historial background of the deep south. It is a great story of young love and trust between two teenagers. The charature Ethan, is a great example of a person doing the right thing and not the popular one. And, Lena, is a great example of standing up for herself. I loved most of the charatures in this book, they were very intriging.

    The narrater, Kevin T. Collins, did a great job in distinguesing the different charatures from one another. I really enjoyed this audio and I invision it as a movie before I knew it was going to be one. Now I what to see the movie.

    The historic hotel in Boonsboro has endured war and peace, the changing of hands, and even rumored hauntings. Now it’s getting a major face-lift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother. As the architect in the family, Beckett’s social life consists mostly of talking shop over pizza and beer. But there’s another project he’s got his eye on: the girl he’s been waiting to kiss since he was sixteen.

    This book is a great book to listen to. The narrator did a great job with this characters. I enjoyed listing to it, it was never boring. Mr. Andrews did a fantastic job capturing the personalities of each of the main characters. This is a great story of a family business and family and brotherly love. Also, it is about friendships, relationships and trust. I found it very entertaining, funny and suspenseful. I know I will listen to it over and over again.

    Owen is the organizer of the Montgomery clan, running the family’s construction business with an iron fist - and an even less flexible spreadsheet. And though his brothers give him grief for his compulsive list making, the Inn BoonsBoro is about to open right on schedule. The only thing Owen didn’t plan for was Avery MacTavish... Avery’s popular pizza place is right across the street from the inn, giving her a firsthand look at its amazing renovation - and a newfound appreciation for Owen.

    Story

    I really enjoyed this book. A great Nora Roberts story. Fun to listen to. The characters are interesting, funny and engaging. It has just the right amount of reality and ghost story, which,for me, is fun and intriguing. The narrator did a great job in playing all these different characters and capturing their personalities.

    If you could sum up Carnal Innocence in three words, what would they be?

    A story with a twist. In other words, I was truly surprised by the ending, I did not see it coming.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character would have to by Tucker Longstreet. As a Southerner, from a small town, he had a very lay back way of looking at world. He took time to smell the roses. He did not feel that he had to over work himself to get his job or responsibilities done. And, he sure did like the ladies.


    Which character – as performed by Tom Stechschulte – was your favorite?

    All of them. Mr. Stechschulte did a very good job between the male and female characters.


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

    Yes it was. I wanted to know "who done it".


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this book. It is a great combination of romance, comedy and murder mystery.

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    Would you consider the audio edition of A Discovery of Witches to be better than the print version?

    I don't know? But I now want to by the printed version. I usually read the book first.


    What other book might you compare A Discovery of Witches to and why?

    I can only compare the love story to Twilight, but the rest of the context is unique to me and much more gear to an adult audience. I like the historical and scientific references.


    What about Jennifer Ikeda’s performance did you like?

    I loved the way she change her voice to match the character. She made "Mathew" sound so romantic with that English accent. I could easily distinguish between the characters by the way she change her voice, accent and diction.


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

    When Mathew declared his love for Diana and that was it. They were married and committed to each other without a formal matrimonial ceremony. Totally romantic. (Especially in this day in age were people cannot seam to stay committed.) Fantasy, I know, but that is what books are for.
