    Where does Sea Swept rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Nora Roberts seems to have a good formula for romantic stories, yet the plots are so different each time. It's similar to, yet different from, her other books.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this book and plan to look up others in the Chesapeake Bay series

    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.

    Would you try another book from Peter Clines and/or Ray Porter?

    Not for a while, but I would think about it... and read some reviews!


    Would you recommend 14 to your friends? Why or why not?

    Strangely, I probably would recommend this book, even though I might not read another Peter Clines. It's not the type of thing I am normally into, and to my mind the chapters toward the end were a bit too out there (without giving too much away!). But I was too engrossed to give it away by then and had to know what happened. The ending was a nice "full circle" conclusion. I think those who would enjoy the later part of the book would probably find the beginning a bit slow going.


    What about Ray Porter’s performance did you like?

    He gave each character a different voice so it was quite easy to recognise who was speaking.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Some books are meant to be read; others are meant to be heard – Water for Elephants falls into the second group, and is one of the best examples we have of how a powerful performance enhances a great story. Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days with a circus. It's the Depression Era and Jacob, finding himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Water for Elephants to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version but (as usual) the book is far better than the movie. I loved the story from the beginning.


    Which character – as performed by David LeDoux and John Randolph Jones – was your favorite?

    It gave depth to have the young and old Jacob read by different narrators. I think the older one was my favourite, and the ending was just great.

    Adrian McKinty was born in Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland. He studied politics and philosophy at Oxford before moving to America in the early 1990s. Living first in Harlem, he found employment as a construction worker, barman, and bookstore clerk. In 2000 he moved to Denver to become a high school English teacher and it was there that he began writing fiction.

    Would you listen to The Cold, Cold Ground again? Why?

    I don't usually listen/read books more than once, but I would give this one another go. Although I now know what happens, the narrator's accent was just lovely and it is a great story.


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

    I haven't listened to him before but plan to look up his other performances.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the dry humour, the crime mystery and the personal story of the main character. It's a great read

Believing he can escape retribution, he is unprepared for the courageous, life-embracing Ida Arnold, who is determined to avenge a death.... Read by Samuel West.

    What did you like best about Brighton Rock? What did you like least?

    I have seen the movie but couldn't really remember it. I haven't listened to the end of this book as I lost interest. I might have another go at it one day. Perhaps I should see the movie again. It just didn't grip me. Perhaps I wasn't concentrating enough

    Hitching rides is an unreliable mode of transport, but Jack Reacher's adrift in the fearsome heat of a Texas summer, and the last thing he's worried about is exactly who picks him up. He never expected it to be someone like Carmen. She's alone, driving a Cadillac. She's beautiful, young, and rich. She has a little girl who is being watched by unseen observers. And a husband who is in jail. Reacher is no stranger to trouble. And at Carmen's remote ranch in Echo County there is plenty of it.

    Although Reacher is the quintessential hero, the outcome was not as predictable as other books I've read/heard lately and I enjoyed it to the end

    A good read, I liked it and might look up another Reacher story

    Owen is the organizer of the Montgomery clan, running the family’s construction business with an iron fist - and an even less flexible spreadsheet. And though his brothers give him grief for his compulsive list making, the Inn BoonsBoro is about to open right on schedule. The only thing Owen didn’t plan for was Avery MacTavish... Avery’s popular pizza place is right across the street from the inn, giving her a firsthand look at its amazing renovation - and a newfound appreciation for Owen.

    Where does The Last Boyfriend rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Right up there. I didn't want it to end and was very disappointed to learn that the third book hasn't been released yet... I wanted to go straight into it. This is a lovely romantic story.
    It is slightly predictable in that it is pretty clear from the start (even from the first book) who will end up with whom, but that anticipation of the inevitable is part of the romance for me.


    Any additional comments?

    It was a nice surprise that the second book in the trilogy is from the point of view of a different character than the first.

    The historic hotel in Boonsboro has endured war and peace, the changing of hands, and even rumored hauntings. Now it’s getting a major face-lift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother. As the architect in the family, Beckett’s social life consists mostly of talking shop over pizza and beer. But there’s another project he’s got his eye on: the girl he’s been waiting to kiss since he was sixteen.

    All of them! It's refreshing to hear romance read by a male, and of course he brought the men to life... and the young boys were great too

    With an ailing mother to care for, Lisa Grant takes the first job she can find: research assistant to District Attorney Scott Buchanan. What Lisa expects to be a mind-numbingly boring task turns into anything but when a missing-persons case draws her attention. The details of the case are engrossing: an entire family — father, mother, and two children — disappeared without a trace more than 28 years ago. Except that’s not all: the mother in a photo Lisa finds could be her own twin.

    "Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness… He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily…Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds…and desires."

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No because there was just a whole bunch of mind-blowing sex linked by a very thin plot. I continued to the end as I am the curious type, but it got quite tedious.


    Has Bared to You turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Although I enjoyed Fifty Shades of Grey, this book has cured me of this genre (mummy porn or whatever it is).


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    Put some romance in it would be a good start. The author doesn't seem to appreciate the difference between sex and romance


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator did a good job with the material.
