    It was stolen from a New Orleans grave - the centuries-old bust of an evil man, a demonic man. It’s an object desired by collectors - and by those with wickedness in their hearts. One day, its current owner shows up at Danni Cafferty’s antiques shop on Royal Street, the shop she inherited from her father. But before Danni can buy the statue, it disappears, the owner is found dead…and Danni discovers that she’s inherited much more than she realized. In the store is a book filled with secret writing: instructions for defeating evil entities.

    What made the experience of listening to Let the Dead Sleep the most enjoyable?

    The narrator was excellent!


    What other book might you compare Let the Dead Sleep to and why?

    Any other Heather Graham paranormal novel.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The ending -- at the sugar mill. That's all I'll write so I don't give the ending away.


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

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I love how Ms. Graham took the time to develop her characters and the story line. Plus, the narrator's voice for each character was incredible. I'd definitely listen to her again.

    From #1 New York Times-best-selling author Nora Roberts comes a novel of a woman who needs nothing, a man who sees everything, and the web of deceit, greed, and danger that brings them together - and that could tear them apart… As a professional house-sitter and freelance writer, nothing ties Lila Emerson down - not her work, not a home, and definitely not a relationship. She spends her life moving from one job to the next, sometimes crashing at a friend 's Manhattan apartment. And though she can appreciate her clients ' extraordinary homes, their expensive collections, and their adorable pets, Lila has never longed for possessions of her own. Everything she has, including her heart, is portable.

    Would you listen to The Collector again? Why?

    Yes, the characters are very engaging and the narrator was really good.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ash -- I thought his character was the most realistic.


    Which character – as performed by Julia Whelan – was your favorite?

    Lila - she did a really good job of bringing her to life.


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

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall, the book was really good. She kind of lost me at the end and Lila's character became really annoying. Almost wanted to stop listening (not giving anything away). But it was worth sitting through to get to the end.

But when a man is murdered in the alley behind her place, she's dismayed when his spirit appears, too, asking for help. FBI agent Dallas Samson has a passionate interest in the murder, since the victim's a colleague whose death is connected to the smuggling ring known as Los Lobos - the wolves.

    What did you like best about The Cursed? What did you like least?

    First of all, I'm not done with the book, but so far, it's pretty good. I have one complaint though, if Ms.Graham is going to use characters from other books, she needs to remember their relationship to each other. I read all 3 Bone Island trilogy books and David and Liam Beckett are cousins NOT brothers as she has them in this book. Also, in the book she refers to O'Hara's as O'Briens a couple of times. Sorry, a bit annoying.

    Dane Whitelaw knows something about Sheila Warren that no one else does. Dane knows Sheila's dead. The private investigator found a photo under his door - a picture of Sheila, strangled with his tie and posed on the beach of his private island in the Florida keys. The crime appears to be the handiwork of a serial killer currently terrorizing the Miami area. Now Dane knows he is being set up to take the fall for the killings. He just doesn't know why.

    Would you try another book from Heather Graham and/or Gayle Hendrix?

    Normally love Heather Graham. The Cafferty & Quinn series is great, as well as the Krew of Hunters. But this book is awful.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Heather Graham again?

    Yes, I would.


    What didn’t you like about Gayle Hendrix’s performance?

    Male voices sucked.


    What character would you cut from Hurricane Bay?

    Kelsey, absolutely annoying. Strong women are great, but she was just stupid.


    Any additional comments?

    Yeah, skip this book. I couldn't get past chapter 3.

    There is no escaping. Despite a floundering marriage, Megan O’Casey and her husband Finn still make good music together. Which is why they head to Salem, Massachusetts, Megan’s hometown - booked to perform a weeklong series of concerts culminating on Halloween. But as soon as they arrive, Finn seems different - sensual beyond belief one moment; cold and ruthless the next. The locals - even Megan’s relatives - regard him strangely, with a distrust bordering on hatred.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A better story line.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Heather Graham again?

    I love Heather Grhaam's books and have read many of them. I just finished the 2nd book in the Cafferty & Quinn series and loved it. This one, however, was just boring.


    Which character – as performed by Tanya Eby – was your favorite?

    None. I couldn't connect to any of the characters. Found them all to be boring or annoying. If anything, the best part of this book is the fact the narrator was good.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. Ms. Graham's books are usually well written.


    Any additional comments?

    Yeah, skip this one. Not worth the credit.

    Alessande Salisbrooke has been warned about the legend of the old Hildegard Tomb - how human sacrifices are being carried out by the followers of a shape-shifting magician. As a Keeper, Alessande understands the risks of investigating, but she can't shake the nagging feeling that the killings are tied to a friend's recent murder, and she can't turn her back. With the help of Mark Valiente, a dangerously sexy vampire cop, Alessande narrowly escapes becoming a sacrifice herself. But the bodies continue piling up, completely drained of blood.

    What did you like best about Keeper of the Dawn? What did you like least?

    Best - Mark. Least - Alessande. She was one of the most annoying characters.


    If you’ve listened to books by Heather Graham before, how does this one compare?

    I've listened to many books by Heather Graham and read even more. This book is probably one of my least favorites.


    What three words best describe Claire Christie’s performance?

    Kind of bland.


    Did Keeper of the Dawn inspire you to do anything?

    Not really.


    Any additional comments?

    If you're really bored check it out. It will hold your interest but just not one of Heather Graham's best books.

    A secret government unit is formed under the oversight of Adam Harrison, famed paranormal investigator. The case: In a historic mansion in New Orleans’ French Quarter, a senator’s wife falls to her death from a balcony. Most think she jumped, distraught over the loss of her young son. Some say she was pushed. And yet others believe she was beckoned by the ghostly spirits that inhabit the house - once the site of a serial killer’s grisly work.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Not quite finished with it but so glad I've read all the other Krewe of Hunters books. Also, I'm glad Jackson and Angela's character's developed more in other story lines because this one isn't the best.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Heather Graham? Why or why not?

    I've read nearly all of her books. Surprised I hadn't read this one yet, although glad I didn't.


    What three words best describe Jeffrey Cummings’s voice?

    It's ok. Much prefer Luke Daniels. Since he's the one I've listened to the most I was left a bit disappointed listening to Mr. Cummings.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    Better chemistry between the two leads.


    Any additional comments?

    If this is your first read for Heather Graham, don't let it deter you. Her other books are great. Give them a chance.

    What disappointed you about Turbulent Sea?

    Please tell me it gets better. I'm already tired of hearing about Ilya and he's the main love interest in this book. It is always a constant description of how he makes her feel? Kinda nauseating.

    I'll give it a few more chapters but if it's the same I feel I may not be finishing this book. At least the narrator is good.

Out of work and in a bad place personally, to Peyton a year doing something completely different sounds wonderful. Peyton dives into learning the resort business but is quickly derailed by an escalating chain of events that puts her life in danger. She refuses to be intimidated - until she’s nearly killed.

    The Old West town of Lily, Arizona, is home to the Gilded Lily, a former theater…and bawdy house. These days, it offers theatrical productions geared to tourists, but the recent discovery of a skull, a real skull, among the props and costumes shakes everyone up. So, who do you call? The Krewe of Hunters, a special FBI unit of paranormal investigators. In this case, it’s agent Jane Everett. Jane’s also a talented artist who creates images of the dead as they once were. But the Krewe always works with local law enforcement, and here that means Sloan Trent, former Houston cop and now sheriff. His great-great-grandmother was an actress at the Gilded Lily…and she’s not resting in peace. Then more remains appear in the nearby desert. As they search for answers, using all the skills at their disposal, Jane and Sloan find themselves falling into danger — and into love.

    What did you like best about The Night Is Watching? What did you like least?

    This is honestly one of the first books by Heather Graham that I did not like. Plus, I usually love Luke Daniels as a narrator but this was not up to his usual standards.The storyline was weak as were it's characters.


    What could Heather Graham have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    She could've made some the characters a bit more serious.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    It did. But overall was not thrilled with the narration.


    Was The Night Is Watching worth the listening time?

    Not really.


    Any additional comments?
