    Wedding bells are ringing in Parable, Montana, but Brylee Parrish hasn’t enjoyed the sound since being jilted at the altar by Hutch Carmody. She’s over Hutch now, and running a multimillion-dollar business is challenging enough for this country gal. So she should avoid falling head over boot heels for A-list actor Zane Sutton. He’s come home to his rodeo roots, but Hollywood lured him away once and just might again. Yet everything about him, from his easy charm to his concern for his young half-brother, seems too genuine to resist…. Zane didn’t come to Parable for love - but count on a spirited woman to change a jaded cowboy’s mind.

    Story

    I like this book, and like the voice of the narrator but his pace is too slow for me. I wish he'd read a bit faster. I'm now listening at 2X and that is a little too fast, but it is preferable to 1X.

    Story

    I'd call this a contemporary Christian western romance with a paranormal twist. It is about a horse rancher and a psychic, and both are devoutly religious Catholics. There's adventure, romance, and dollops of sin and guilt during a horse trek through the Oregon mountains while they try to rescue a lost child. They confront the wilderness, their own personal prejudices, and consider their actions in light of their religious training. If you haven't read it and aren't offended by religious overtones, I'd suggest it.

    I prefer the print version of this book. Julia Gibson's reading of this book made the woman seem whiney, and somewhat unlikeable. I wanted a more upbeat voice with more energy. She did a better job with the male voice.

    Just as Jane Jameson’s unlife seems to be stabilizing, fate sinks its fangs firmly into her butt. Despite her near-phobia of wedding planning, her no-frills nighttime nuptials to her sexy boyfriend, Gabriel, are coming along smoothly. That is, until she turns a fatally wounded teenage acquaintance, and the Council pronounces her responsible for the newborn vamp until he can control his thirst.

    Where does Nice Girls Don't Bite Their Neighbors rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    Nice Girls Don't Bite Their Neighbors is an entertaining read, and thoroughly enjoyable. It is a must listen for Jane Jameson fans.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jane is my favorite character because she always struggles to do the right thing, even when it isn't easy to see right from wrong. She's tough and endures. I like her friends and family, too, except for Grandma Ruthie. Alive or not, the woman is poison.


    What does Amanda Ronconi bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Amanda Ronconi gives Jane a believable voice, and personality. She is an entertaining reader, and a pleasure to hear.


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

    I loved this book and performance, but prefer to savor my audio books in pieces. It gives me something to look forward to, and something to entertain me while I riding in a car. I began listening to audiobooks while commuting, and still enjoy them while traveling. I also enjoy listening while knitting, crocheting, or walking the dog. I like to be doing something while I listen.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this book to all who enjoy family humor and love stories.

    Miranda Puckett has failed at every job she’s ever had. Her mother just wants her to come home, join the family law firm, and settle down with Jason, the perfect lawyer boyfriend. But when Jason turns out to be a lying cheater, Miranda seizes on a job that gets her out of town: long-distance vampire transportation. Her first assignment is to drive vampire Collin Sutherland from Washington to sleepy Half Moon Hollow without incident—no small feat for a woman whom trouble seems to follow like a faithful hound dog!

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

    I would recommend that a friend read Ms. Harper's other books, all of which I enjoyed enough to read over and over. In Driving Mr. Dead, Miranda Puckett takes on the job of driving a reclusive vampire from his west coast home to an important meeting in Kentucky. While on a madcap cross-country road trip to the meeting, Miranda agonizes over her own lack of post-college professional success in comparison with her family of high profile lawyers. She worries about the relationship between her fiancee and his best friend from childhood, the girl next door. Miranda copes admirably with disasters caused by criminals and acts of nature but she does not take pride in overcoming obstacles or giver herself well deserved credit. Too much time is spent agonizing over a life she seems to consider a series of failures. After reading Harper???s other books, I expected another 4.5 or 5 star read, but can only rate Driving Mr. Dead a three.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I wanted to see less angst and more development of the relationship between modern Miranda and her difficult passenger, an18th century ???second son??? of British aristocracy, turned vampire. I consider it a missed opportunity. I also wanted see Miranda feel more proud of her accomplishments.


    What about Amanda Ronconi???s performance did you like?

    Amanda Ronconi is an entertaining storyteller who provides a believable and enjoyable voice for the characters in the books she reads. She becomes the main character. I???d rate her performance a five out of five stars.
