    When mechanic and shapeshifter Mercy Thompson attempts to return a powerful Fae book she'd previously borrowed in an act of desperation, she finds the bookstore locked up and closed down. It seems the book contains secret knowledge - and the Fae will do just about anything to keep it out of the wrong hands.

    I tried this series because it was similar to some others I had listed to. I like paranormal books but with some funny in them and some romance in them, this series had them all. I wizzed right through the series and waiting anxiously for the next book to come out. If you like the Sookies Stackhouse books and the Laurell Hamilton/Anita Baker books you'll like this series. Also the new Darynda Jones new series. They all have the same to offer and they are all great!

    I love these trilogies that Nora Roberts does, from The Sign of Seven, to the Inn Boonsboro series. The final book in this series was perfect, I could listen to it again and still enjoy it. The conclusion to this series was exceptional and the narrator was excellent. I just love Susan Ericksen as well. I wish she had narrated the second book! If you love Nora Roberts you'll love this trilogy, with this one the perfect ending.

    Natalie Black, the U.S. ambassador to the Court of St. James, has returned to Washington, her job in jeopardy. Her fiancé, George McCallum, Viscount Lockenby, has died in a car accident, and mysterious rumors that she's responsible begin to surface: she broke off the engagement and, heartbroken, he killed himself. Then someone tries to force her off the M-2 outside London.

    I love Catherine Coulter books, have been reading them for years. This one was just as amazing as all the rest. Not sure why there was a review that said otherwise. Same characters with some new ones added in. Great banter between Savitch and Sherlock. Family and mystery. Always someone trying to kill someone else. Just a good book, as always!

    In New York Times best-selling author Victoria Laurie’s newest Psychic Eye Mystery, Abby Cooper is trusting her intuition and heading to Sin City to bet on a friend’s innocence.... When police show Abby surveillance video of her best friend and business partner, Candice Fusco, shooting a man in cold blood, she can’t believe her eyes. And when the cops tell her they think the victim has ties to the Mob - and perhaps Candice does, too - she can’t believe her ears. Surely there is a logical explanation.

    These books are fantastic. they have a little bit of everything. I little romance, a lot of mystery and a bit of fantasy. Each book gets better and better which is what I look for in a series. I love the humor in the books and can't wait for the next one to come out!

    For Lieutenant Eve Dallas of the NYPSD, the job is a useful reminder of what she has to be grateful for this season. Hosting Roarke's big Irish family for the holiday may be challenging, but it’s a joyful improvement on her own dark childhood. Other couples aren’t as lucky as Eve and Roarke. The Reinholds, for example, are lying on the floor of their Downing Street apartment, stabbed and bludgeoned almost beyond recognition. Those who knew them are stunned - and even more heartbroken by the overwhelming evidence that they were murdered by their own son.

    I love these books. This one was as good as the rest. It was great that there was a lot about their family in this one, I really like that side of the stories. Her style is very much the same in all these books but she changes them up just enough to make you want to listen more. Narrator is also fantastic. I'm so used to the voices and the characters if any one else was to narrate the books it would definatly not be the same. Can't wait for the next one! To bad we can't get another one each month!

    FBI Special Agent Griffin Hammersmith, last seen in Backfire, has been recruited by Dillon Savich to join his unit in Washington, D.C. Savich sees something special in Hammersmith, an almost preternatural instinct for tracking criminals. While on his way to D.C., Hammersmith plans to visit his sister, Delsey, a student at Stanislaus School of Music in Maestro, Virginia. Before he arrives, he gets a phone call that Delsey has been found naked and unconscious, lying in a pool of blood, after a wild party. The blood isn’t hers - so to whom does it belong? Griffin must protect Delsey, but from whom?

    I LOVE these books, I wait all year for them to come out and this one left me flat. I'm not sure why, maybe it was the back and forth between 2 different cases and the new characters, i'm not sure, but it was not my favorite Catherine Coulter, I ended up disappointed. I feel really bad saying that. I love Savich & Sherlock, love the interpersonal relationships and this one didn't have it for me. Hopefully the next one will be back up to parr.

    Charley Davidson isn’t your everyday, run-of-the-mill grim reaper. She’s more of a paranormal private eye/grim reaper extraordinaire. However, she gets sidetracked when the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, moves in next door. To further complicate matters, Reyes is her main suspect in an arson case. Charley has vowed to stay away from him until she can find out the truth... but then dead women start appearing in her apartment, one after another, each lost, confused, and terrified beyond reason.

    I LOVE this series. Charley Davidson is fantastic, love the banter between characters, it's so funny but at the same time serious. I have been waiting for this book to come out and after listening to it I'm going to go crazy waiting for the next one to come out. If you like Charlene Harris or Janet Evanovich, you will love this series. Read, listen enjoy!

    FBI Special Agent Kate O’Hare is known for her fierce dedication and discipline on the job, chasing down the world’s most wanted criminals and putting them behind bars. Her boss thinks she is tenacious and ambitious; her friends think she is tough, stubborn, and maybe even a bit obsessed. And while Kate has made quite a name for herself for the past five years the only name she’s cared about is Nicolas Fox - an international crook she wants in more ways than one.

    I love Janet Evanovich, love her books, Stephanie Plum is quite the character. Those books make you laugh out loud, this book does not. I keep thinking i'll get into it eventually but it's just not happening. I want to like it, just can't say I do. Characters are Ok, nothing special, just not grabbing me, hopefully others find it better.

    Falling for Justice Garrett was a high point in Patience McGraw’s otherwise awkward adolescence. Even after he disappeared, Patience never forgot the boy who captured her heart. Now, he’s back in Fool’s Gold, California, and her passion for him is as strong as ever. But how can she trust that he won’t abandon her again - and her daughter, too?When bodyguard Justice Garrett was a young man, witness protection brought him to this idyllic town and he never forgot its warmth, or the sweet beauty of his childhood friend. He’s returned to open a defense academy, and the Patience he once knew is all grown up.

    Love this series, love these books. I could listen to them all again and probably would. Yes, they are predictable but who doesn't love a good love story! For me books that continue with a town or character just keep readers interested. New characters but old favorites. I love Tanya Eby as a narrator as well so this is a perfect match! Can't wait for the next one!

    Knitting and life. They're both about beginnings - and endings. That's why it makes sense for Lydia Goetz, owner of A Good Yarn on Seattle's Blossom Street, to offer a class called Knit to Quit. It's for people who want to quit something - or someone! - and start a new phase of their lives.

    I have always loved Debbie Macomber books and recently got into this series. I really enjoy the books but I have not loved the different narrators. I especially disliked this one. All the sentences ran together without breath and all the characters were the same voice. I love a good book and a good narrator really brings it to life. For me this one was almost painful to get through.
