    Penniless and 34th in line to the throne, Lady Georgiana Rannoch finds herself in a truly draining state of affairs. To escape her hateful brother, Georgie accepts an invitation from the Queen to represent the royals at a wedding in Transylvania. But at the macabre- looking castle, Georgie finds the bride with blood running down her chin, and a wedding guest is poisoned.

    I agree with a previous reviewer; the vampire stuff was rather silly. The story, however, was as good as expected - vampires not withstanding.

    Poor Meg Langslow. She's blessed in so many ways. Michael, her boyfriend, is a handsome, delightful heartthrob who adores her. She's a successful blacksmith, known for her artistic wrought-iron creations. But somehow Meg's road to contentment is more rutted and filled with potholes than seems fair.

    Because of my stressful job, I really wanted something light and funny. I am thoroughly enjoying this book. The characters and story are funny but the author still has a mystery in the book. I highly recommend this book and hope Audible gets more of this series soon.

    After giving up her career as a Texas trophy wife, 28-year-old Lee McKinney finds herself in a Michigan resort town, keeping the books for her Aunt Nettie’s luxury chocolate business. But she soon finds that her new life isn’t all truffles and bonbons… Clementine Ripley, the defense attorney everyone loves to hate, is throwing a party that calls for several thousand dollars worth of custom chocolates - some made in the image of her champion cat.

    Story

    When I read the previous reviews on this book, I was skeptical, but decided to listen anyway. I completely disagree with the previous reviews. I enjoyed the book enough to buy the next one, and Teresa DeBerry did a very good job narrating. I appreciate the main character having a slight Texas accent, since she IS from Texas.

    Adrian Monk has journeyed into the realm of the cult science fiction show Beyond Earth, where he meets fans just as obsessive as he is. Monk is at their convention because there may be a killer lurking in the Beyond Earth community: someone in a starship uniform has very publicly gunned down the show's legendary creator, Conrad Stipe. Could a fan be that furious at him for selling out to an exploitative Hollywood producer? Or is there more going on behind the scenes in Stipe's life?

    Story

    The book was OK, but the end didn't make sense. Apparently, some pages were skipped because Natalie was in the building, in the car, then in the building again. And she mentioned driving through the window, which never happened - at least in the reading it didn't! Please be sure the entire book is read; otherwise, why are we buying them from Audible???

    In investigating the poisoning of a young man in a bookshop at the Eastern Market, and the wrongful arrest of one Miss Sylvia Lee, Phryne Fisher is plunged into a world of Jewish politics, alchemy, poison, and chicken soup. Stopping only for a brief but intensely erotic dalliance with the beautiful Simon Abrahams, Phryne picks her way through the mystery with help from the old faithfuls: Bert, Cec, Dot, and Detective Inspector "Call Me Jack" Robinson.

    I've been thoroughly enjoying the Phryne Fisher stories. The history of 1928 Australia is very interesting. Having Jewish grandparents, I particularly enjoyed this this book. And Stephanie Daniel did GREAT Jewish accents, nu?

    I'd never heard of these books before, but figured I'd give them a try. Totally enjoyable! Fun story line, and the reader is excellent. I love the accents. This is a great series if you're looking for light listening with a bit of excitement. And I find the description of 1932 England fascinating.

    Story

    Like another reviewer I thought there was WAY too much Shaker history in the story. I mean, the history was interesting, but if I wanted to read a detailed history of the Shakers, I'd get a history book. It seems to me that without the history the book would have been too short, so the author may have added it to fill pages. The basic back story was interesting, but WAY too detailed!

    At Annie Laurance's Death on Demand bookstore on Broward's Rock Island, South Carolina, murder suddenly isn't confined to the well-stocked shelves. Author Elliot Morgan's abrupt demise during a weekly gathering of famous mystery writers is proof positive that a bloody sword is sometimes mightier than a brilliant pen. With Annie in the primary police suspect, the pretty young mystery maven and her wealthy paramour, Max Darling, embark on an investigation into a classic locked-room mystery with high stakes.
