    All Casey Reynolds wanted was peace and quiet and a long vacation from covering the crime beat in Boston. That's why she agreed to borrowing a villa in Mexico to rest, be alone, and work on her novel. But then he showed up - Travis Craig. He said he was offered the villa to recover from a serious illness. She agreed with his plan to share the house - but on her terms. Soon rest and relaxation were a thing of the past when their double occupancy proved too erotic to control.

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

    I really do hate to say anything negative regarding someone else's work, however the female leads manic episodes about love and her ability to make love became quite tedious and put the story on the corner of la la land and straight jacket blvd.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Elaine Raco Chase again?

    Not really looking good for that but I can't say no. I just hope her characters are normal everyday ones.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I gave the performance a three out of five. Nothing negative or positive about it. I just hope they did not have to go to a therapist when they were done.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No not really maybe if the female lead took a dive off the cliff


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to some books I didn't enjoy as much as others but I have never left a comment saying so. However with this one it was so hard to get through I just felt so bad the female lead really needed a therapist with the ranting and raving. It wasn't a bad plot it just had too much negativity coming from the female lead. I really got to the point where I felt like diving off of a cliff myself with this one. I wasted my money and my time. I NEVER feel like that.

    New York Times best-selling author Charlaine Harris has re-imagined the supernatural world with her "spunky" (Tampa Tribune) Southern Vampire novels, starring telepathic waitress Sookie Stackhouse. Now, for the first time, here is every Sookie Stackhouse short story ever written - together in one volume. The stories include "Fairy Dust", "One Word Answer", "Dracula Night", "Lucky" and "Giftwrap".

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    In 1919, Delano, Georgia, appoints its first chief of police. Honest and hardworking, the new chief is puzzled when young men start to disappear. But his investigation is ended by the fatal blast from a shotgun. Delano's second chief-of-police is no hero, yet he is also disturbed by what he sees in the missing-persons bulletins. In 1969, when Delano's third chief takes over, the unsolved disappearances still haunt the police files.

    Not much happens in Adams Grove, Virginia, where the worst crime to hit the small town in a decade was hunters bagging too many deer. So when word gets out about a break-in over at Pearl Clemmons’s place, the townsfolk go on high alert, locking their doors and firing up the rumor mill. Pearl’s granddaughter Jill certainly has enough on her plate, what with tending to Pearl’s estate and coming face-to-face with sexier-than-sin Garrett Malloy. Also known as: The Man Who Broke Her Heart.

    What disappointed you about Sweet Tea and Secrets?

    The story line was interesting despite that the main character at times seemed unintelligent regarding events around her. It is most irritating to yell at an audiobook


    Has Sweet Tea and Secrets turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    What about Shannon McManus’s performance did you like?

    She has a pleasant voice


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Other listeners liked it maybe it just isn't my cup of tea

    Would you consider the audio edition of Eternal Hunger to be better than the print version?

    yes I find it very useful when the need arises to perform other tasks


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Eternal Hunger?

    when Sara found out she would be okay and could be with Alex.


    Have you listened to any of Tavia Gilbert’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes Ms Gilbert is superb. She brings the right amount of dramatization to the characters. I also love the way she does accents I never have to guess what the accents is suppose to be as Ms. Gilbert's accents are very clear


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

    no not an extreme reaction.


    Any additional comments?

    Right mix of action, suspense and romance

    Driven by his insatiable need for revenge, Lothaire, the Lore’s most ruthless vampire, plots to seize the Horde’s crown. But bloodlust and torture have left him on the brink of madness - until he finds Elizabeth Peirce, the key to his victory. He captures the unique young mortal, intending to offer up her very soul in exchange for power, yet Elizabeth soothes his tormented mind and awakens within him emotions Lothaire believed he could no longer experience.

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

    yes because I can listen while I do other things. Reading requires me to stop what I am doing and concentrate on the story. I am an avid reader so this frees up a lot of my time to complete other tasks. Also it is nice to have the option to listen in bed and lull off to sleep.


    What other book might you compare Lothaire to and why?

    Maybe others in the series, I have not read other books quite like Lothaire aside from the others in the series and I read vampire novels all the time.


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

    The accents, more dramatization, clear expressiveness.


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

    Most audiobooks I listen to all the way, like I said I can do other things while listening. I find it much more entertaining that tv.
