I've listened to the whole audio series in order and this was by far my favorite of the five written and recorded to date. Since I've listened to the whole series in just a few days I've noticed some inconsistencies between the books, which I found a bit distracting. I am looking forward to the remaining books.
Tracker's Sin is by far the best in the series. The narrator was fabulous and the story was very good and quite believable. I'll take Tracker any day of the week.
Strongly recommend this book.
I would definitely try more books from both Bowen and Kellgren. I've listened to all of the books in the Royal Spyness Mystery series and some of them I have loved. Katherine Kellgren ALWAYS delivers an exciting narration.
I am not sure that I would have enjoyed reading these books as much as I have enjoyed listening to the narration. Katherine Kellgren brings every character to life and combined with the great writing of Rhys Bowen, I feel like I know these characters and I can see them clearly in my imagination as I listen to the books.
I think that the whole series is just a lot of fun, but I really want Darcy to come into some cash so that he and Georgie can get married. The fact that Georgie never knows when and where she will see Darcy again and then he just happens to be in the same location as Georgie is getting old. I did enjoy Georgie's trip to America and her interaction with "the stars".
SPOILERS: I think these books are REALLY cute, but I think this book had a few issues. I didn't like that Georgie solved the mysteries in this book without Darcy. If Scotland Yard is sending Darcy on these cases and he would like to get paid for the work then he should solve the mysteries. I think it's great for Georgie to help, but Darcy left on what basically ended up a wild goose chase while Georgie solved the mysteries. I would really like to see Georgie and Darcy married and solving these mysteries together. Now that would be fun!!!!
I loved the three ongoing stories and I loved Garnet. What a prude.
I thought Ms. Kingsolver did a great job with the narration. I really enjoyed her inflection and her southern accent.
I have to say that I was hoping for a different ending. Each story line wrapped up - sort of - but not completely. I almost feel like Ms. Kingslover needed to just finish the book and I thought it could have gone on a little longer and wrapped up a little better.
This book is not for everyone. You need an appreciation of nature. Ms. Kingslover had to do an incredible amount of research to write this book. I learned a lot. I really enjoyed this book and I'm sure I'll listen to it again.
I really enjoyed this book and I love Sally and Lucien, but I missed Ms. Gwen and Jane. I know that Ms. Gwen was included in the book, but her role was minimal. I actually think that I liked Eloise's and Collin's story the best. I can't wait to see what happens with them in the next book.
I really do love the Pink Carnation series. Lauren Willig is such a talented writer. She can take you back in time 200 plus years or 10 years and make you feel like you are right there with the characters. I enjoy her books so much!
Kate Reading's narration is PERFECT - PERFECT!!!! She switches between an American accent and British accent without any problems and makes every single character believable and brings them to life.
The combination of Ms. Willig and Ms. Reading is spot on!
I have listened to all of the Dixie Diva books and although these may not be the most scientific or have real life consequences, I am in love with these characters. I feel like I know all of them personally and I want to be a Dixie Diva. Being a southerner myself I can completely relate to a lot of the southern sayings and opinions/thoughts. Some are just so funny, but you may have to be a southerner to "get" them.
Trinket and Bitty are my favorites. I love their squabbles and I think that Karen Commings has brought these characters to life. Sometimes I laugh out at their antics.
Karen has ensured consistency of the characters between all of the books and that makes it very easy to flow from one book to the next.
I don't think these books would be a great "read", but I can tell you that they are a FANTASTIC "listen." I love them!
I really enjoyed this series and I thought this was a great story to end with. The story was believable even though it had a bit of a historical mystical tale. The characters were very well developed, but you need to listen to the first two books in the series before listening to this final book. It is a very good series, but I wouldn't recommend the books as standalone books.
The narrator is one of my all time favorites. She's fantastic.
Great series and a great story. Well worth the credit.
Maya Banks delivered!!!! The story was very good and it provides the set up for a very good series. I like that Evaline was hearing impaired although her ability to speak was one of the hardest things to believe due to the fact that this book is narrated. The narrator cannot really speak like a deaf person who hasn't spoken in three years, but regardless, she did a great job.
Very good and would highly recommend.
A very HOT and steamy short romance. I didn't care for the back door activities, but the romance was believable. Excellent narrator.
A very hot short super steamy romance. I don't care for the "rear end" activities, but the romance is believable. Good short steamy romance.
Maya Banks always delivers a solid historical Scottish romance. I am always confident that I'll enjoy her story and really like her characters. Now I'm stuck waiting on the next book in the series.
The narrator was very good. She has narrated the other Scottish romance novels for Maya Banks and like Maya, she always delivers.
Good use of credit!!!! Can't wait for the next book.
If you like a hot steamy romance that is somewhat believable, this is book is perfect. The introductory scene and how they got to the steamy part is a little hard to believe, but everything falls in line perfectly after that. The narrator is also very good.
Definitely worth the cost or the credit. EXCELLENT!
