    Summer 1924: On the eve of a glittering society party, by the lake of a grand English country house, a young poet takes his life. The only witnesses, sisters Hannah and Emmeline Hartford, will never speak to each other again. Winter 1999: Grace Bradley, 98, one-time housemaid of Riverton Manor, is visited by a young director making a film about the poet's suicide. Ghosts awaken and memories, long consigned to the dark reaches of Grace's mind, begin to sneak back through the cracks.

    This book was ruined for me by the use of an Australian narrator even though the story was set in Britain. The Narrators strong Australian accent was out of place in this novel, I can't think what induced the publishers to make such a choice! Although most Americans (I'm told) can't tell the difference between the two accents, anyone from the UK will find this confusing and distracting. The story was a little slow but enjoyable enough.

    Teenage delinquent Angel Crawford lives with her redneck father in the swamps of southern Louisiana. She's a high school dropout, addicted to drugs and alcohol, and has a police record a mile long. But when she's made into a zombie after a car crash, her addictions disappear, except for her all-consuming need to stay "alive".

    Enjoyable, easy listen. If you love Molly Harper's Vampire series you'll like this too. Hoping for sequels! Full marks to the narrator too.

    Maybe it was the Shenanigans gift certificate that put her over the edge. When children's librarian and self-professed nice girl Jane Jameson is fired by her beastly boss and handed $25 in potato skins instead of a severance check, she goes on a bender that's sure to become Half Moon Hollow legend. On her way home, she's mistaken for a deer, shot, and left for dead.

    I nearly didn't buy this book not being a fan of the Vampire genre however after reading the reviews thought I'd give it a try. It actually took me a bit to get into the first book but by the time I'd finished I was hooked. Bought all 9 available. Just hope Ms Harper has more in the pipeline as I'm spoiled for anything else now. Amanda Ronconi is an awesome narrator I'm actually looking for more books that she's narrated

    When her husband is offered a post at a small northwestern university, Maye Roberts is only too happy to pack up and leave the relentless Phoenix heat for the lush green quietude of Spaulding, Washington. But when you're a childless 30-something freelance writer who works at home, making new friends can be quite a challenge. Her attempts to do so lead her to enter a kooky beauty pageant - and to uncover a sinister mystery.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Several hours in and still waiting for the story to begin. The narrator is so wrong for this book. Amanda Ronconi could possibly have made this book a more enjoyble listen. I've just listened to 9 Molly Harper books in a row so maybe I've been spoiled for anything else...


    How could the performance have been better?

    A more lively narrator.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Jackson, Mississippi, 1962. Aibileen is a black maid raising her 17th white child. Minny, Aibileen's best friend, is the sassiest woman in Mississippi: a wonderful cook with a gossip's tongue. Graduate Skeeter returns from college with ambitions, but her mother will not be happy until she's married. Although world's apart, Skeeter, Aibileen and Minny's lives converge over a clandestine project that will change the town of Jackson forever.

    If you never read another book again you HAVE to listen to this marvellous story. Can't remember when I was ever, so upset to hear those two words. THE END! I actually said 'OH NO" out loud!I It was only the high star rating that encouraged me to buy this and thank goodness I did. I laughed and cried, was anxious and relived. I love that there is enough story in there for a sequel or even a saga. PLEASE Kathryn Stockett, don't end it here!

    Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

    Such a disappointment. Story line had a lot of potential but went downhill quickly! It's all been said by fellow reviewers. Mills and Boon meets S&M. Don't bother. Very disappointing.
