    Leona Hewitt, disguised in men's formal evening clothes, has secretly made her way into Lord Delbridge's private museum to recover a relic stolen from her family years ago. But someone else is there in the dimly lit gallery, on the same errand: a tall, black-cloaked man whose very voice is enough to put her in a trance.

    Even though this is not my favorite Arcane novel, nor my favorite reader, I still liked it. Strong female lead & strong male lead who join to battle the baddies. I will always be willing to spend a credit on Amanda Quick.

    Story

    Although this is the 9th in the series, it does well as a stand alone. I thought the mystery was well written, but the various relationships in the story were also part of the overall pleasure of this book. Even the characters who only had cameo appearances in Deborah's courtroom are...characters. I felt drawn into the story, and was sorry when I finished it. I'm eager to listen to the next one.
    Re the narrator: I was somewhat dubious about listening to C J Critt read a story set in North Carolina, having heard her read several Stephanie Plum novels which require a very different accent. I needn't have worried. There was nothing about her reading which reminded me of any other series.

  • NIV Audio Bible, Pure Voice: Psalms

    The book of Psalms from the clear, accessible New International Version - the most popular modern-English Bible - has been digitally produced to bring the Bible's stories to life. This audio is narrated by George Sarris, a well-known spokesperson for several Fortune 500 companies. This vivid recording of the NIV in a single, pure voice will help you hear the Bible again... for the first time.

    Story

    I was disappointed because I didn't realize until after I had bought it, that this is a reading of the newest gender-neutral translation. Many people will prefer this translation, but I have always liked the NIV because it was translated from original text as much as possible. Now that it has been changed to become gender-neutral, I feel like the publishers have opted for political correctness over accuracy.

  • Changeless: An Alexia Tarabotti Novel, Book 2

    Gail Carriger created a fascinating steampunk vision of Victorian England in her “intoxicatingly witty” (Publishers Weekly, starred review) debut novel Soulless—the first in the best-selling Parasol Protectorate series. Changeless is the second in the series and finds Alexia Tarabotti, now the Lady Woolsey, quite put out after her werewolf husband goes missing. So, armed with her trusty parasol, Alexia boards a dirigible and heads for Scotland to find him.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I really enjoyed the 1st book in this series, but was disappointed in this one. The relationships between the characters lacked the charm and humor found in the 1st book. I would have still given it a better rating, though, if it hadn't been for the ending. For me, the ending ruined any pleasure I had gotten from the book.

    I have listened to several Paul Temple audiobooks, both performances and books, and this is my least favorite so far. It was depressing, with pointless suicides & murders. I wish I had not spent the credit on it.

    The three great-nephews of cantankerous Mr Penicuik know better than to ignore his summons, especially when it concerns the bestowal of his fortune. His freakish plan is that his fortune will be his step-daughter's dowry.

    connie says: "Don't judge this book by its cover."
    "Well worth a credit"
    Overall

    It might seem to start out a bit odd to some, but I love this book. Just stick with it. Heyer's character development in Cotillion is fabulous. The minor characters are every bit as fun as the major ones.

    Penniless Elinor is rather surprised at the carriage that meets her from the stage, and more so at the decayed grandeur of the house to which she's transported. Realising that there has been a case of mistaken identity she agrees to an audacious plan.

    Joseph R says: "The Governess's New Position"
    "Great Book!"

    One of my favorite Heyer books. I wish Audible would add more of her books.

    Thea Osborne and her trusty spaniel, Hepzie, have been asked by the Montgomerys to look after their house in Blockley while they take a much-needed holiday. Their elderly mother, Granny Gardner, shouldn't be any trouble - although she is slightly forgetful. Thea's got far more to worry about when a body is discovered in the house next door.

    I'm very sorry I spent a credit on this book. It was slow moving, repetitive, and predictable.
