    Where does Key of Knowledge rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Toward the top.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Key of Knowledge?

    The scene in the end, the climax was the best for me. Also, the fact that te Main Mail CHaracte is an author was doubly thrilling for me.


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    Everything. She's one of my favorite narrators.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Where the lines of reality seem to blur.


    Any additional comments?

    This was just, still amazing. With this book I remember sitting out on the back porch after I was finished with the daily chores, that's when I listen to my audio books, and just closing my eys and listening to the book for anoher three hours to finish it. :D

    Hayley Phillips came to Memphis hoping for a new start, for herself and her unborn child. What she found was a home, said to be haunted but surrounded by beauty and friends - including Roz's son Harper. But to Hayley's chagrin, she has begun to dream about Harper - as much more than a friend. If Hayley gives in to her desire, she's afraid the foundation she's built with Harper will come tumbling down. Especially since she's begun to suspect that her feelings are no longer completely her own.

    What made the experience of listening to Red Lily the most enjoyable?

    Hayley. She's an amazing character that I could also put myself into her shoes. I could in all of them.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hayley and Lily. They were adorable and true to life.


    What about Susie Breck’s performance did you like?

    Everything.


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

    Both. It was really easy to put myself into the shoes of everywoman in this series, but Hayley espically, because it reminded me of myself if my husband had never come home from Iraq. He did, so I'm not complaining. But I could totally see myself in her shoes.


    Any additional comments?

    Wonderful end to the series. I was seriously seriously seriously sad to see it go.

    The more adult and mature romance of Rosalind and Mitchell was just really fun to read. It was nice to see two people who weren't concerned with the game and the chase.

    The instance in the bedroom.

    Yep. The rest of this series, it fufilled my high expectations.

    Totally. This is, so far, my favorite trilogy of Nora Roberts'. It's about a ghost who haunts a family and the women around it. I just love it.

    In this one...Hayley hands down through out the entire trilogy Hayley was the one who wrang with the most amazing... truth.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The past never dies, it reached through time to make itself known.

    When Nell Channing arrives on charming Three Sisters Island, she believes that she's finally found refuge from her abusive husband - and from the terrifying life she fled so desperately eight months ago. Just as Nell starts to wonder if she'll ever be able to break free of her fear, she realizes that the island suffers from a terrible curse - one that can only be broken by the descendants of the Three Sisters, the witches who settled the island back in 1692.

    What did you like best about this story?

    The Magical aspect.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Completely. I hated her voice. She does her best to make everyone sound like aseven year old. Or an old woman.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    I had no problem with the romance, I thought it was wonderful. I couldn't finish it because of the narrator.

    The murder of Paul Wheeler has all the elements of a blockbuster: family rivalries, incalculable wealth, and a prominent man dying in the arms of his beautiful mistress. It's a case that could earn Derek Mitchell even greater star power. When the Wheeler family approaches him about defending Creighton for his uncle's murder -- even before he's charged -- he jumps at the chance.

    Would you listen to Smash Cut again? Why?

    Probably. The story has enough twists and turns that I probably forgot half of them. The characte development and the intrigue and twist of the story is enough for a relisten though.


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

    Totally. When Sandra Brown writes well, she writes well. When she wants a plot to just COME TOGETHER she can do amazing things.


    Which character – as performed by Victor Slezak – was your favorite?

    It's been a long time, so I can't remember their names, but it would have to be the Main MC or his detective.


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

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I love listening to Victor Slezak. He does a number of Sandra Brown's well done stories and I always enjoy them.

For when Gabrielle witnesses a murder outside the club, reality shifts into something dark and deadly. In that shattering instant she is thrust into a realm she never knew existed---a realm where vampires stalk the shadows and a blood war is set to ignite.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Kiss of Midnight to be better than the print version?

    Overall, I enjoyed the story. The only things that hung me up was the whole Vampires are aliens bit. I got over that pretty quickly. The other thing was the marks that the mates have. Correct e if I'm wrong, but the human race isn't magical on it's own and wouldn't have any vamps if, according to story cannon, they hadn't arrived and started taking wives. I just find the idea that human women who could mate to the vamps would have a mark saying they could be possible mates. It doesn't make any sense to me, unless they have magic? But we aren't lead to that possibility at all because their abilities are explained away as aliens who crash landed.

    All in all, I'll probably suspend belief and listen to more. They're fairly well written, even if the sex is raunchy.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The mystery involved with the Rogues. The Alien backstory.


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

    This is the first book I listened to by her.


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

    Not really.
