    The irrepressible Jacky Faber, condemned for life to the English penal colony in Australia for crimes against the Crown, has once again wriggled out of the grasp of British authorities. Back on her flagship, the Lorelei Lee, she eagerly heads back to England in the company of friends and her beloved Jaimy Fletcher.But when the voyage is waylaid by pirates, storms, and her own impetuous nature, Jacky is cast into a world of danger that extends from the South China Sea to the equally treacherous waters of London politics.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I love this series so much that I listen without my 10 and 13 year old boys sometimes which, is a good thing, as Jackie's 'romantic' interest this round is a courtesan turned female pirate. When my son asked me what Jackie meant when she talked about being 'petted a lot' I was thrown...The Asian angle is wonderful but as she grows up I like her less and less. It is still a great series but this is my least favorite.

    In the small 14th-century English village where he has lived his entire life, the boy has grown up with no name of his own, known only as "Asta's son". But when his mother dies, the boy receives both his rightful name, Crispin, and a lead cross, inscribed with a secret that soon has him fleeing for his life.

    Story

    I was surprised as this was well reviewed. The narrator was skillful but quite affected. The story was good basic adventure but very religious. Full of heavy handed Christianity (Catholic) Lots about Lord God and sin and penance etc etc. Having just listened to the entire Bloody Jack series and enjoyed it immensely, this was not a keeper.

    Jacky Faber, rich from her exploits diving for Spanish gold, has purchased the Lorelei Lee to carry passengers across the Atlantic. Believing she has been absolved of past sins against the Crown, Jacky docks in London to take on her crew, but is instead arrested and sentenced to life in the newly formed penal colony in Australia. To add insult to injury, the Lorelei Lee is confiscated to carry Jacky and more than 200 female convicts to populate New South Wales.

    In My Bonny Light Horseman, the infamous pirate, riverboat seductress, master of disguise, and street-urchin-turned-sailor Jacky Faber has been captured by the French and beheaded in full view of her friends and crew.Inconceivable? Yes! The truth is she's secretly forced to pose as an American dancer behind enemy lines in Paris, where she entices a French general into revealing military secrets--all to save her dear friends.

    What made the experience of listening to My Bonny Light Horseman the most enjoyable?

    Both thoroughly entertaining and equally moving. Dealt with the truth of war and the loss involved of those you love. Napoleon and being a 'dancer' in Paris. Delicious flirtation. Great fun.

    Jacky Faber, having been called a pirate and had a price put on her head by the King of England, has no choice but to stay out of sight. Hoping for a safe hiding place, she returns to the Lawson Peabody School for Young Girls in Boston, but the calm doesn't last long. On a class field trip to Boston Harbor, the girls are abducted and forced into the hold of the Bloodhound, a ship bound for the slave markets on the Barbary Coast where they will be put up on the auction block and sold into Arab harems.

    You’ve lost your job as a department store lingerie buyer, your car’s been repossessed, and most of your furniture and small appliances have been sold off to pay last month’s rent. Now the rent is due again. And you live in New Jersey. What do you do? If you’re Stephanie Plum, you become a bounty hunter. But not just a nickel-and-dime bounty hunter; you go after the big money. That means a cop gone bad. And not just any cop. She goes after Joe Morelli, a disgraced former vice cop who is also the man that took her virginity....

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

    I love Evanovitch. I always consider her books to be great, light fun. Therefore unfortunately, I didnt listen to the sample.
    Performance was at best mediocre and the production value was such that I could hear the narrator breathing after every sentence. It was hugely distracting.
    Having read the book and being addicted to audiobooks I tried hard to give it a go. I abandoned this one very early on - it was simply awful.


    Would you be willing to try another one of C. J. Critt’s performances?

    NO! I find her heavy breathing every sentence highly distracting and too little personality with characters and accents.
