    Nancy receives a letter meant for a British heiress who has the same name and, in her attempts to contact the other young woman, faces danger from a man who operates a Lonely Hearts Club mail fraud

    Shaliali says: "Ruined by an Awful-- Even Offensive-- Narration"
    "worst narrator ever!"
    Overall

    We've enjoyed the other Nancy Drew mysteries but this one was tedious and the narrator was abysmal.

    With the legends and lore of Ireland running through his blood, falconer Connor O’Dwyer is proud to call County Mayo home. It’s where his sister, Branna, lives and works, where his cousin, Iona, has found true love, and where his childhood friends form a circle that can’t be broken. A circle that is about to be stretched out of shape - by a long-awaited kiss. Meara Quinn is Branna’s best friend, a sister in all but blood. Her and Connor’s paths cross almost daily, as Connor takes tourists on hawk walks and Meara guides them on horseback across the lush countryside.

    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the first book in the series and Katherine Kellgren is a fantastic narrator. I was looking forward to the second book in the series. What a disappointment. The narrator is terrible. I listen on my commute every day and usually enjoy my books but, with this one, my mind kept wandering to mundane matters and I had to rewind to see what I missed. This is one of the worst narrators I've heard. Bring back Kellgren for the last book PLEASE!

    Like the city of New Orleans itself, Claire Laurent is a vibrant beauty laced with a mysterious elusiveness. The founder of French Silk, a fabulous lingerie company, she has fought hard to make it a worldwide success. Then a TV evangelist attacks French Silk’s erotic sleepwear as sinful. And when he is killed, Claire becomes the prime suspect. District Attorney Robert Cassidy knows Claire is damning herself with lie after lie about the murder, even as he feels her drawing him into her world and her very soul....

    "Really really awful!"
    Overall

    Wow. That was bad. Really bad. Insipid characters with no rational motivation for their behaviors. Cheesy southern accents. Just awful writing and narration.

    Mikael Blomkvist, crusading journalist and publisher of the magazine Millennium, has decided to publish a story exposing an extensive sex trafficking operation between Eastern Europe and Sweden, implicating well-known and highly placed members of Swedish society, business, and government. On the eve of publication, the two reporters responsible for the story are brutally murdered.

    David says: "irritatingly engrossing"
    "Go Lisbeth!"
    Overall

    Great listen. The narrator does a great job with the voices. The story is longer than it needs to be but intriguing. The names are a bit hard like I got Hekstrom and Egstrom confused a couple of times but not too bad. I recommend listening to Dragon Tattoo and this one back to back. I'm looking forward to the Girl Who Kicked a Hornets Nest. I hope the same narrator does that one. Sad that the author died young.
