    I love how Ms King can take me to other places and times so perfectly. It is as though she has traveled there and then herself. Add to that the mystery and fun and you have a wonderful story. Jenny Sterlin is superb as always, a real pleasure to listen to. I was sorry when it ended.

    Buckle your seat belts. New York Times best-selling author Janet Evanovich is moving into the fast lane with Metro Girl, a thrilling, high-octane misadventure with high stakes, hot nights, cold-blooded murder, sunken treasure, a woman with a chassis built for speed, and one very good, very sexy NASCAR driver who's along for the ride.

    Story

    If the character is supposed to be 30, why would you cast someone clearly twice that age to read it? And, every single word is said as though they were in caps.

    Also, I've read enough Janet Evonovich to know this cannot be her writing. I can't imagine her writing this badly unless she just cranked it out in a week and never went back to fix it.

    I'm only worried now that when I die, someone will see this in my library

    Banker Rhetta McCarter's ongoing battles usually involve mortgage loans, federal lending regulations, threats of bulges on her butt, and her closet-drinking husband. But after one of her mortgage clients dies in a mysterious car accident, she stumbles upon evidence of a terrorist plot to wipe out the entire Midwest power grid. No one believes her - not the FBI, local law enforcement, nor her husband. Rhetta convinces her assistant, and loan officer, Woody, a former Marine, to help her stop the attack.

    Story

    Wow, this writer knows how to tell a story. I've always enjoyed an author who can effortlessly put me into his setting. This one does it without you realizing you're there, I feel like I've been to this place and met these people.
    The story moved fast but not so fast I didn't get to relax and enjoy the tale, which I did very much.
    The narrator did a good job, I thought, of making you feel like you were really listening to Roswell tell his story.
    All in all a great listen.
    I look forward to hearing more from this author and narrator.

    In this Hugo-winner from Connie Willis, when too many jumps back to 1940 leave 21st century Oxford history student Ned Henry exhausted, a relaxing trip to Victorian England seems the perfect solution. But complexities like recalcitrant rowboats, missing cats, and love at first sight make Ned's holiday anything but restful - to say nothing of the way hideous pieces of Victorian art can jeopardize the entire course of history.

    Would you consider the audio edition of To Say Nothing of the Dog to be better than the print version?

    The narrator is brings the story to life like none other I've heard. This is audio book at its finest.


    Any additional comments?

    Everything a book should be. A classic and one of my favorites.

    Crime reporter Nichelle Clarke's days can flip from macabre to comical with a beep of her police scanner. Then an ordinary accident story turns extraordinary when evidence goes missing, a prosecutor vanishes, and a sexy Mafia boss shows up with the headline tip of a lifetime. As Nichelle gets closer to the truth, her story gets more dangerous. Armed with a notebook, a hunch, and her favorite stilettos, Nichelle races to splash these shady dealings across the front page before this deadline becomes her last.

    Where does Front Page Fatality rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I enjoyed it as much as any I've listened to. The writing is fast paced with the perfect balance of humor and tension. Good story, held my interest from start to finish.

    When Chaz Perron's wife discovers that he is running a scam (posing as a marine biologist to doctor water samples so that an agribusiness tycoon can continue illegally dumping fertilizer into the Everglades), he pushes her overboard from a cruise liner. Unlucky for Chaz, Joey survives clutching a bale of Jamaican pot. Rescued from the Atlantic by a former police officer, Mick Stranahan, she decides not to report him but instead haunt and taunt him, with Mick's help, by playing dead.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The constant references to sex added nothing to the story, it came off as adolescent boy content. Everyone, but the police, thought about and talked about sex through over half the book. That kind of thing gets boring quickly and none of the characters are likable. The writing is excellent and the author knows how to put together a novel but for me, it was much too seedy, I felt like I needed to shower after every listen.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Carl Hiaasen again?

    no


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    the narrator used far too exaggerated accents


    Was Skinny Dip worth the listening time?

    no

    New York Times best-selling author Tana French has won the prestigious Edgar, Barry, Macavity, and Anthony awards. As her third novel featuring the Dublin Murder Squad opens, 19-year-old Frank Mackey is waiting in vain for Rosie, who he’s supposed to run away to London with. But when she doesn’t show, Frank leaves Dublin without her—thinking never to return.

    Story

    Tana French was able to make The Place and all of her inhabitants rich, colorful, multidimensional, and fascinating. I could not stop listening. I was sad when it was over leaving The Place and everyone there. I like that the protagonist is not all perfect with the purest of motives. He is flawed and at times unlikable, but growing up in Faithful Place he would have to be; anything other than that would have been more than unlikely, it would have made him unbelievable.
    The prose is perfect as you get the flavor of the characters. Their colloquialisms are a delight. This author really takes you there and the narration couldn't have been better.
    I'm downloading the first and second ones now, I'm an official Tana French fan.

    The last camel is dead, and Egyptologist Amelia Peabody, her dashing husband, Emerson, and precocious son, Ramses, are in dire straits on the sun-scorched desert sands. Months before, back in cool, green England, Viscount Blacktower had approached them to find his son and his son's new bride, who have been missing in war-torn Sudan for over a decade. An enigmatic message scrawled on papyrus and a cryptic map had been delivered to Blacktower, awakening his hope that the couple was still alive.

    Debra says: "Good Story, Painful Narration"
    "Amelia with an American accent?"
    Overall

    I couldn't listen past the first hour, it was too painful. Who in the world decided to give this to an American reader? Unless it is Barbara Rosenblat, then it is not Amelia Peabody Emerson

    The sun rides high over the British Empire and the light still sparkles brightly in Amelia Peabody's eye as she returns for her second adventure in archaeology and romantic mystery as recounted in her lively journal, The Curse of the Pharaohs.

    Michelle says: "So much fun!"
    "Addicted to Amelia"
    Overall

    What great fun this series is turning out to be. As much as I enjoyed the first, the second is equal in enjoyment and interest. At first I was bothered by the narration of the voice of Emerson, but I'm accustomed to it now and the ability of the narrator to ease from one character to the other is uncanny. I am glad there are many more ahead for me in this series because I have grown to think of Amelia as an engaging companion.
