Vince Flynn is my favorite author. I enjoy CIA or FBI thrillers, and sometimes light reading like Judith McNaught or Cathrine Coulter. Personal information, I became a grandma last year and love it!

    It’s Christmastime in London and Rafe Bowman has arrived from America for his arranged meeting with Natalie Blandford, the very proper and beautiful daughter of Lady and Lord Blandford. His chiseled good looks and imposing physique are sure to impress the lady-in-waiting, and if it weren’t for his shocking American ways and wild reputation, her hand would already be guaranteed.

    Katherine Howe's first marriage was one of dreary duty. Now that she's being pressured to marry her late husband's heir, she's desperate for a better option. Gerard de Lacey, with his sinful good looks, charming manner, and looming scandal, fits her needs perfectly. The fact that she's nursed a secret affection for him only makes it better - and worse. Because Gerard will likely marry her for her fortune - but can he love her for herself, as she loves him?

    This spectacular romantic novel unveils a tantalizing tale of a legendary knight, a headstrong lady, and a quest for an ancient crystal. To find the mystical Stone of Scarcliffe, Sir Hugh needs the assistance of Lady Alice of Lingwood, a flame-haired beauty with a dazzling intellect. Together, Hugh and Alice begin a dangerous adventure that brings them more than they expect: murder, deception, and the possibility of lasting love.

    As soon they are released, Amanda Quick’s romances shoot to the top of best seller lists. With over 22 million copies of her books in print, she is one of today’s hottest authors. Set in Regency-era England, Mischief offers a sparkling mixture of wit and intrigue that has become Quick’s trademark. Beautiful, headstrong Imogen Waterstone has recruited the darkly infamous Earl of Colchester to help her seek revenge for the murder of her best friend. As they set a trap for the villain, Imogen and Colchester fearlessly encounter the threats and dangers that come their way.

    Amanda Quick delivers another entertaining story full of humor,romance, and suspense. The narration took away from this story, the worst I have heard in any audible book.

    The four dead guards didn’t concern Mitch Rapp as much as the absence of the man they’d been paid to protect. Joe Rickman wasn’t just another foot soldier. For the last eight years Rickman had ran the CIA’s clandestine operations in Afghanistan. It was a murky job that involved working with virtually every disreputable figure in the Islamic Republic. More than a quarter billion dollars in cash had passed through Rickman’s hands during his tenure as the master of black ops and no one with a shred of sense wanted to know the details of how that money had been spent.

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

    I highly recommend this audiobook. Flynn makes the Rapp character and to a lesser degree the Nash character a little different making me look forward to future books.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot is fast moving and has enough characters that keep your attention through the whole book. The facts feel real and it keeps my emotions enganged throughout the story.


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

    George Guidall brings the character's alive, especially Rapp. He is amazing.

    Where does The Widow's Kiss rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The Widow's Kiss is one of my all time favorites. The story is interesting and the characters come alive within the story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Many of the characters make this story entertaining but I literally laughed out loud over the youngest daughter's character from the beginning to the end of this story.


    What about Jenny Sterlin’s performance did you like?

    Jenny Sterlin's performance was well done. She was able to portray each of the characters, both male and female in a credible way.

    What made the experience of listening to TailSpin the most enjoyable?

    The story moved along enough to keep you entertained.


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

    I would say this is an average book for Coulter. I've read better and worse (Aftershock).


    Have you listened to any of Joyce Bean and Paul Costanzo ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    At least in this book Paul Costanzo pronounces the character's names correctly.


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

    I did not have an extreme reaction to this book.
