    Miranda Puckett has failed at every job she’s ever had. Her mother just wants her to come home, join the family law firm, and settle down with Jason, the perfect lawyer boyfriend. But when Jason turns out to be a lying cheater, Miranda seizes on a job that gets her out of town: long-distance vampire transportation. Her first assignment is to drive vampire Collin Sutherland from Washington to sleepy Half Moon Hollow without incident—no small feat for a woman whom trouble seems to follow like a faithful hound dog!

    Would you listen to Driving Mr. Dead again? Why?

    I will listen to this series every year. Why not when you enjoy something so much


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jane is so funny. If there is something that can go wrong it will happen to her


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

    I so enjoy Amanda's reading of this book that I can't imagine what it would be like to just read the book. In fact, I am listening to book 3 as I am writing this review


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

    I laughed the whole time listening to this book. If not laughing I had a smile on my face


    Any additional comments?

    I plan on listening to the complete series. I also am going to get the rest of Holly Harper's books. She is a very entertaining writer

    Would you consider the audio edition of Grave Dance to be better than the print version?

    I like to read books but I enjoy the audio books so much more. I can work on the computer, drive, and work around the house while still enjoying a book. The biggest plus is having different characters come alive for you.


    What did you like best about this story?

    All of it

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would tell anyone to listen to this book. It was great! From the first words spoken Alessandro draws you into the story and keeps you on edge to find out what happens next.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There is no way to pick my favorite scene. It is all one great scene.


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

    I wanted to not have to go to work-listening in my car on my phone--or get home. I love listening to books in the car. This books has been one of the best I have listened to


    Any additional comments?

    I have already gone onto book 2 and ready for book 3

    Not even death can save her now. As a grave witch, Alex Craft can speak to the dead---she's even on good terms with Death himself. As a consultant for the police, she's seen a lot of dark magic, but nothing has prepared her for her latest case.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Grave Witch?

    I can't choose a particular moment. I enjoyed the ghost, elves, witches in a city where all of them live with regular humans together


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

    She gets in character and makes the book and the people in the book come to life.You can't do that when you read the book yourself.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    yes

    It is the summer of 1868, and Sherlock Holmes is 14. On break from boarding school, he is staying with eccentric strangers—his uncle and aunt—in their vast house in Hampshire. When two local people die from symptoms that resemble the plague, Holmes begins to investigate what really killed them, helped by his new tutor, an American named Amyus Crowe. So begins Sherlock’s true education in detection, as he discovers the dastardly crimes of a brilliantly sinister villain of exquisitely malign intent.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    In a case that spans 20 years, Harry Bosch links the bullet from a recent crime to a file from 1992, the killing of a young female photographer during the L.A. riots. Harry originally investigated the murder, but it was then handed off to the Riot Crimes Task Force and never solved. Now Bosch's ballistics match indicates that her death was not random violence, but something more personal, and connected to a deeper intrigue. Like an investigator combing through the wreckage after a plane crash, Bosch searches for the "black box", the one piece of evidence that will pull the case together.
