    Zach Mitchell is stuck in a rut. His college boyfriend left him ten years ago, but Zach still lives in the same apartment, drives the same car, and feeds his ex-boyfriend’s ungrateful cat. His Denver business, A to Z Video Rental, is struggling. He has annoying customers, eccentric neighbors, and an unfulfilling romance with his landlord, Tom. But things start to change when Zach gives a job to a combat boot-wearing punk with an attitude, Angelo Green.

    Story

    There are two main characters in this book but the narrator does not change his voice for them or the other few minor characters. I would have to go back to make sure the dialogue was for the correct character. Other than being annoying to listen to, I genuinely enjoyed the story.

    In this, their first adventure, Chet and Bernie investigate the disappearance of Madison, a teenage girl who may or may not have been kidnapped, but who has definitely gotten mixed up with some very unsavory characters.

    It was funny at times but I didn't like that it was from the dogs point of view. I kept feeling like I was missing half of the story. I can see how some people would really like it though. I didn't finish it. Being returned.

    Eli Henninger is stretched a little thin. He teaches riding classes, conducts therapy sessions, takes care of his son, and helps manage the family farm. He's tired and overworked, especially because lately, no one else seems to do anything right. He and his partner, Geoff, haven't have time together in so long, he's beginning to forget what his longtime love feels like. Then Eli becomes ill and the investigators suspect foul play, forcing Geoff to reevaluate his priorities and hope fate will give them another chance.

    Story

    I think perhaps I was used to Sean Crisden reading for this series. I was bothered by the narrator for some reason. I returned the book before finishing the first chapter so my rating of the story and overall are not necessarily accurate. I have others in my library that are narrated by the same person. I bought them all during the sale. I'm hoping I like the narrator if he is reading for a series I haven't listened to before. :(

    Repressed scholar Percival Endicott Whyborne has two skills: reading dead languages and hiding in his office at the Ladysmith Museum. After the tragic death of the friend he secretly loved, he's ruthlessly suppressed any desire for another man. So when handsome ex-Pinkerton Griffin Flaherty approaches him to translate a mysterious book, Whyborne wants to finish the job and get rid of the detective as quickly as possible. Griffin left the Pinkertons following the death of his partner, hoping to start a new life. But the powerful cult that murdered Glenn has taken root in Widdershins, and only the spells in the book can stop them.

    Story

    I'm not interested in fantasy. It might have been a good book but I can't get past that. Unfortunately I have tried to return it through Audible but for some reason, they won't take it back. I gave the narrator 3 stars because I really have no opinion. I couldn't get through the book.

    A lover from another time... When Ted Ennis steps out the doors of the Criterion Theatre for a cigarette and finds himself in Victorian London, he begins to doubt his sanity. At first he thinks it's all a film set, and is sure that the strikingly handsome young man leaning against a lamppost must be the leading man.… What starts as a sordid transaction with a beautiful rent boy quickly turns into something much deeper, drawing him back again and again as he gets to know Jem and craves meaningful encounters with him.

    Story

    I tried 3 separate times to listen to this book. For some reason I couldn't listen to the narrator for more than a chapter and, even then, couldn't follow the story. I won't buy a book read by this narrator again. I advise listening to a sample prior to buying. I wish I had.

    This story had potential. I was enjoying it then.....it ended abruptly. I have to assume that there will be a continuation. It was very odd.

    Baltimore is a city in alarming distress. Rising violence is fanning the flames of public outrage. Thus the FBI’s latest ideas to improve public relations: a municipal softball league and workshops for community leaders. But the new commitments just mean more time Special Agents Ty Grady and Zane Garrett have to spend apart when they’re happily exploring how to be more than by-the-book partners. Then the latest spate of crime explodes in their faces—literally.

    I think this is the best of the 4 books. Not quite as creepy and more about the characters relationship. I can't wait for the next book!!!

    Story

    Not a bad story but the reader did not have ANY distinction between voices. Since one character was English and one was American, it should have been easy to tell which was which. No excuse for that in my opinion. I spent way too much energy keeping track of who said what.
