    There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

    Oh my, Excellent book, loved the dialog, narrator was superb. I wanted to listen till it was done, I don't remember feeling that way about a book for a long time. This book was out of my norm, but I will be hunting up more from this author and the narrator. Heart pounds with anxious fear. Can't wait to start it over. Get it. Enjoy it.

    LAPD cop Scott James is not doing so well, not since a shocking nighttime assault by unidentified men killed his partner, Stephanie, nearly killed him, and left him enraged, ashamed, and ready to explode. He is unfit for duty - until he meets his new partner. Maggie is not doing so well, either. The German shepherd survived three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan sniffing explosives before she lost her handler to an IED and sniper attack, and her PTSD is as bad as Scott’s. They are each other’s last chance.

    I loved this book. It wasn't silly, I guess I was just in that kind of mood. I Loved the dialog/thoughts of the dog. It's the kind of book that stays with you days and weeks after you listen to it. Highly recommended.

    It's been thirteen years since Lucy Sheridan was in Summer River. The last time she visited her aunt Sara there, as a teenager, she'd been sent home suddenly after being dragged out of a wild party - by the guy she had a crush on, just to make it more embarrassing.

    Story

    I liked the story, but it took awhile. There was a lot of repeating of "trust me". Maybe I have trust issues? I just don't like hearing it over and over. I did at several points think about giving up on the book, but I hung in there. The sex scenes were the best I've heard from Jayne, and that was a wow?! The story picked up in part 2 and the "Who Dunnit" was very well done.

    The narrator was a big problem though. I did like her voice, but it didn't change much. I couldn't tell who was talking, male or female sounded the same...too bad. You had to really pay attention to figure out who was talking. I had just listened to Mercy by Julie Garwood narrated by Christina Traister, she did an excellent job.

    Eveline Armstrong is fiercely loved and protected by her powerful clan, but outsiders consider her "touched." Beautiful, fey, with a level, intent gaze, she doesn't speak. No one, not even her family, knows that she cannot hear. Content with her life of seclusion, Eveline has taught herself to read lips and allows the outside world to view her as daft. But when an arranged marriage into a rival clan makes Graeme Montgomery her husband, Eveline accepts her duty -unprepared for the delights to come.

    Story was good and enthralling! Tried to listen to it in one sitting but couldn't. I wanted to inhale it absorb it! It was my first exposure to Maya Banks and I am now a fan of Scottish tales, never having listened to or read one before. I am also now adding Kirsten Potter as one of my favorite narrators. I have 2 credits to spend...guess what I'm going to get?

    Would you listen to The Witness again? Why?

    BUY THIS BOOK! It is wonderful. I gave it 5 stars after listening for 2 hours. Now I'm down to the last 1/2 hour. I have cleaned, gardened, knitted, cooked, scanned pictures to my computer, everything I could think of just to keep listening. The last time I was this wrapped up with a Nora Roberts book was with Black Rose, and as good as that was, this is better. Wow!Thank you! This book was so very well done!


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

    Yes, I just kept churning.


    What does Julia Whelan bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Another review mentioned the similarities with the tv show Bones...Julia brought that to it with innocence.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The obvious of course, but what smacked me! was when she explained how she was going to bring them down. I loved that part! It really makes you think...the bad guys would have no way to retaliate.


    Any additional comments?

    It is one of my best spent credits!

    I really liked the book, but... I cringed every time I realized the male was speaking. The voice Eby used for the male was still very feminine. Maybe I'm not being fair, because I just got through listening to Natalie Ross in After the Night, now that was a very sexy male voice delivered by a female. The book was a good wrap up of this trilogy. Was worth the credit.

    "Of all of my novels, After the Night remains one of my personal favorites – and Faith Devlin and Gray Rouillard are two of my favorite characters. Faith is strong, proud, and fearless, and Gray – well, he’s just downright sexy. Faith’s search for the truth about the devastating scandal surrounding her mother and Gray’s father blazes with intrigue. Add some sultry Southern hear, and you’ve got a real scorcher of a listen."

    This is the sexiest, hottest book I've listened to in a long time. I keep looking around for my pirate! But, alas, I live alone.

    Grey was soooo knowledgeable in so many areas, especially cleaning up messes and massages. Faith is another strong heroine like Daisy from Open Season. That was my first intro to Linda Howard, then I went to Cover of Night and haven't stopped yet, but didn't know about this one.

    Wow. A wonderful surprise, wonderful treat, great listen, a well used credit and Natalie Ross was the deliverer. A definite replay....over and over again.

    There was no doubt about it. What Miss Harriet Pomeroy needed was a man. Someone powerful and clever who could help her rout the unscrupulous thieves who were using her beloved caves to hide their loot. But when Harriet summoned Gideon Westbrook Viscount St. Justin to her aid, she could not know that she was summoning the devil himself.

    Overall

    The book is very good but I can no longer stand another syllable from Flosnik. I bought this book months ago and just never could get into it because of her. As it is, I listened to the first half of part one and the last half of part two, that's all I could take. I think it is the.... pauses.... between.... each.... word.... Flosnik speaks for both characters, especially his. Yikes! Deep Drama. I will NOT be buying another book read by her. Actually I hesitated buying this one...with this reading she definately pushed me over the edge to be sure I don't do it again.

    Ex-cop Luther Malone, lifelong member of the secretive paranormal organization known as the Arcane Society, is waiting to meet Grace Renquist. Hired as an aura-reading consultant in the quest for a murder suspect, she's got zero field experience. She's from tiny Eclipse Bay, Oregon. She's a librarian, for heaven's sake.

    As for Grace, she's not expecting much either from Malone, who walks with a cane and isn't so good with a gun. Nice resumé for a bodyguard.

    Roberta Rothwell says: "Another Great Arcane Society story."

    I've just started "getting into" the Arcane series. I'm enjoying them all, the past, present and Harmony. Just a pleasant enjoyable escape. Why do we have to "interpret" our reading. Gosh, if you want depth and knowledge, you are in the wrong section. Life is good, enjoy it! Escape is fun too!

    'Tis the season for mistletoe and holly, Santa . . . and suspense. And the gift that keeps on giving is Ice: premier thriller author Linda Howard's breathless tale of a man, a woman, and a battle for survival against an unforgiving winter - and an unrelenting killer. Oh what fun it is to read.

    I love and have most of Linda Howard's books/audio's, but this one is my first big disappointment. I regretted the loss of my credit. Was this her first book? I didn't expect sooooo much of the crime. I figured we'd get the crime for a couple of chapters and then the "getting to know each other again" for the rest of the story. No romance to speak of...maybe because it was so short? I just finished Kiss Me While I Sleep. Now, that was a 5 star audio.
