    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Sweet but a little dragged out


    Would you be willing to try another book from Trisha Ashley? Why or why not?

    Probably


    Did Julia Rounthwaite do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    So-so, most characters had subtle differences but not distinct tonal differences


    Could you see Chocolate Shoes and Wedding Blues being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Not really

    Mercy Thompson's life has undergone a seismic change. Becoming the mate of Adam Hauptman - the charismatic Alpha of the local werewolf pack - has made her a stepmother to his daughter, Jesse, a relationship that brings moments of blissful normalcy to Mercy's life. But on the edges of humanity, what passes for a minor mishap on an ordinary day can turn into so much more.... After an accident in bumper-to-bumper traffic, Mercy and Jesse can't reach Adam - or anyone else in the pack for that matter. They've all been abducted.....

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

    Absolutely, as long as they've read the previous Mercy Thompson books. The story line has been compelling from the very beginning. For some reason I felt the story was a little stilted compared to the others, but I'll re-listen to it in another week or two and see if I feel the same way after round 2.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mercy and Adam are the two main characters, and have to be favorites. But I also really like Ben, he's evolving into a semi decent person (werewolf) but he's an ass, and reminds me of some of my friends who also have asshole tendencies :) Warren and Kyle are a great couple and hilarious, and Jessi is always fun. I could go on and on, but you may get it that I pretty much like the whole cast of characters.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked it when Coyote pops back in the picture and Mercy draws the poisoned silver from Adam, I'd have loved to have seen his face at that moment.


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

    A couple, but I don't want to add a lot of spoilers to this review.


    Any additional comments?

    The whole series is well written and entertaining. And the spin off series with Charles starting with Alpha and Omega are well written and entertaining as well.

    The elite Special Crimes Unit, the FBI's most controversial and effective team, is a group of mavericks and misfits trained to use their unique psychic abilities to hunt the worst monsters imaginable - human ones. Led by the enigmatic Noah Bishop, the SCU team has earned a reputation for pitting their skills and cunning against killers that other cops fear.

    "Classic Kay Hooper"
    Overall

    This is a classic Kay Hooper story, she has been on my favorite author list for a long while. This is the first of her books I've gotten on audio. A couple of complaints I've read in previous reviews, the story can be a little hard to follow, especially when you start with this book. There are several predecessors that introduced the majority of "players" in this book, and a lot of history... definitely start with her earlier works. I think that the narrator did pretty well considering the sheer number of characters, though I think it would have been easier to "listen to" with a couple of narrators. Other than that I have nothing bad to say, I'm sure I'll listen to the story again, though I am tempted to dust off all of the paperbacks of the previous stories, and start over.
