    On Lansdown Hill, near Bath, England, a battle between Roundheads and Cavaliers that took place over 350 years ago is annually reenacted. Two of the reenactors discover a skeleton that is female, headless, and only about twenty years old. One of them, a professor who played a Cavalier, is later found murdered. In the course of his investigation, Peter Diamond butts heads with the group of vigilantes who call themselves the Lansdown Society, discovering in the process that his boss Georgina is a member.

    Eliza Budley is a beautiful widow whose husband gambled away his fortune. Lady Fortescue reminds the others that, to be fair, Mrs. Budley has no relatives on whom she can call. Gentle Mrs. Budley thinks she has escaped her fate until Sir Philip comes up with a plan: He has heard that the elderly Marquess of Peterhouse is senile, a widower, extremely rich, and unlikely to remember whether Mrs. Budley is a relative or not. So off Mrs. Budley goes. But the marquess turns out to be not so old, hardly senile, and, in fact, quite handsome.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Mrs. Budley Falls from Grace the most enjoyable?

    I am totally hooked on this series. Ms. Poter's narration is wonderful. I am delighted
    by the main character's personalities and can't wait for the next book to see what
    they get involved in this time.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sir Philip is the most colorful character. He is a rake, kind, hateful,sweet, and
    totally unpredictable.


    What does Davina Poter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I have listened to her narations of M.C.Beaton and enjoyed them but this series is her
    finest performance. Her characters come alive. She deserves 5 stars for this
    narration.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The series brings laughs, worry, historical information, and pure delight.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Having grown up in the deep South in the 50's and 60's I felt like I was in a
    time machine. The narration was perfect! The story is sad, funny, and
    hopeful. I LOVED THIS STORY!

    June 1920. In a house with a red door lies the body of a woman who has been bludgeoned to death. Rumor has it that two years earlier, she'd painted that door to welcome her husband back from the Front - only he never came home. Meanwhile, in London, a man suffering from a mysterious illness first goes missing and then just as suddenly reappears. He is unable to explain his recovery. Inspector Ian Rutledge must solve the cases.

    Widowed van driver Bob Naylor is prodded into joining the Chichester Writers' Circle by his teenage daughter. Bob writes limericks and jingles, and fears he will be out of his class amongst the literati. But the members of the circle come from all walks of life and practice many forms of writing, from fantasy to household hints. There seems to be nothing about any of them to incite a serial killer. However, there is an arsonist in their midst, burning his victims to death, and Bob becomes a suspect.

    Mr Lovesey has introduced some interesting characters involved in a plot that
    leaves you guessing till the end.
