    Maddie McLendon hasn't had a new relationship since the loss of her beloved husband two years ago. Broken by grief and desperate for a new start, Maddie moves to Bitterroot Valley, Montana with her adult son and her grandson. But despite the natural beauty of her new town, not every change in her life is a welcome one. Maddie's new next-door neighbor, Sam Conacher, used to be a pillar of the community, but he has driven old friends and new acquaintances away due to a recent heartbreak of his own. He seems to intrude on her life at every turn.

    Forgiving and Heartwarming. Great narration!
    Concerned about the story being too long and plot dragging out, but that was not the case, much happened throughout.

    It's official! Siobhan is now Garda O'Sullivan, and her five siblings couldn't be prouder. While her brother James runs Naomi's Bistro, Siobhan is doing her part to keep the village safe. Of course, Kilbane is pretty quiet compared to a place like Dublin, where Macdara Flannery has gone to be a detective sergeant. Then one night the local priest summons Siobhan to the church cemetery. There's a dead man in the graveyard - above ground. He's a stranger, but the priest has heard talk of an American tourist in town searching for an Irish ancestor.

    Story

    Good plot, kind of slow. Narration good. Did not see the need to bash Americans, it really did not add anything to the story and reflects badly on the author.

    Nothing is simple when you're 35th in line for the British crown, least of all marriage. But with love on their side and plans to elope, Lady Georgiana Rannoch and her beau, Darcy O'Mara, hope to bypass a few royal rules....

    Story
    If you could sum up Crowned and Dangerous in three words, what would they be?

    Gratifying, Entertaining and Absorbing! Sometimes with a series, the author may run out of scenarios for the character and put out a so-so book, not with this one. Great from start to finish. Cannot wait for the next book in this series. Rys Bowen does an excellent job!


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

    She is the best at different voices and accents. So much distinction in characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, however with audible you don't have to just "sit."


    Any additional comments?

    If you are a fan of the Royal Spyness Mysteries, you will not be disappointed.

    At last, Mitford's rector and lifelong bachelor, Father Tim, has married his talented and vivacious neighbor, Cynthia. Now, of course, they must face love's challenges: new sleeping arrangements for Father Tim's sofa-sized dog, Cynthia's urge to decorate the rectory Italian-villa-style, and the growing pains of the thrown-away boy who's become like a son to the rector.

    Story

    Story was moving and worth the editing problems helps restore faith in others and God. Narration was great

    Editing issues: Repeat of some parts. Ends some paragraphs abruptly and starts another paragraph.

    Story
    (4221)

    The Queen of England has concocted a plan in which penniless aristocrat Lady Georgie is to entertain a Bavarian princess and conveniently place her in the playboy prince's path, in the hopes that he might finally marry.

    But queens never take money into account. Georgie has very little, which is why she moonlights as a maid-in-disguise.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Royal Pain to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the print version. I love audio because I can listen any time. When I cook, clean or ride for long distances in the car. Just listened to several chapters while at the doctors office waiting room.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The narrator did a wonderful job of the different accents. Makes you want to live in London or Scotland back then, but only if you were Rich!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I always like Georgi's encounters with Darcy. He is like her Guardian Angel.
    Any scene with Georgi's grandfather.


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

    Both

    Elizabeth Peters brings back beloved Egyptologist and amateur sleuth Amelia Peabody in an exciting tale set amid the ancient temples and simmering religious tensions of Palestine on the eve of World War I. Once again the Peabody-Emerson clan must use all their skills and wiles to find the truth, prevent a bloody holy war, and save their son from the clutches of a nefarious enemy in this wonderfully engaging tale chock-full of thrills, mystery, and daring from the inimitable Elizabeth Peters.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to A River in the Sky the most enjoyable?

    Very good narrating as always but this story takes place before both Ramses and David were married. David was engaged at the time. Really don't know where this story falls in the series, but not 19th.
