    Gigi is no longer an innocent teen. All grown up and looking for love, her family and friends worry she'll go for the sexy, alluring vampire instead of a nice, safe human. But sexy and alluring, with a penchant for biting, could be just what Gigi wants...

    Story

    I love Molly Harper's books. This book was very similar to the previous books in this series but it's centered around a grown up Gigi. At first I was a little hesitant about listening about little Gigi because I wanted to see her as a young teen, but Molly did a good job showing how Gigi grew up into a mature woman with a weird family. The snarky comments and funny situations are Molly's trade mark of the series. I look forward to reading more of Molly's books. Amanda is a great narrator for this series!!! Keep it up!

    Ysolde Bouchier is still coming to terms with the dragon part of her, while at the same time trying to free a friend of Baltic-her Black Dragon lover-from the weyr, get Baltic to meet with the dragons who want him dead, rescue a half-dragon damsel in over her head, raise the shade of the man everyone says killed her, and once and for all clear Baltic's name of the murder charges that continue to plague him. For Ysolde, being a dragon is starting to bite.

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

    I would recommend this whole series, but I would put more emphasis on the earlier dragon series. This was the end of the dragon series.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Katie MacAlister? Why or why not?

    I have purchased several books from Katie MacAlister. Some were great reads and some not so much.


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

    I did like that the author continued to bring in the old dragons from the earlier series to have some minor roles in the book to bring things together. I did not like how the story seemed a little forced. Like Katie was struggling to end the series once and for all.


    Could you see The Unbearable Lightness of Dragons being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I cannot see this book the Light Dragon series being made into a movie. It would not come out too well.

    FBI Special Agent Kate O’Hare is known for her fierce dedication and discipline on the job, chasing down the world’s most wanted criminals and putting them behind bars. Her boss thinks she is tenacious and ambitious; her friends think she is tough, stubborn, and maybe even a bit obsessed. And while Kate has made quite a name for herself for the past five years the only name she’s cared about is Nicolas Fox - an international crook she wants in more ways than one.

    Would you try another book from Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg and/or Scott Brick?

    I love Janet Evanovich and will read her books. This was the first book I've read by Lee Goldberg /Scott Brick. I may be inclined to read another if they would get to the point and not dance around the answer for several minutes before getting to the point.


    If you’ve listened to books by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg before, how does this one compare?

    This was my first book I have read by Evanovich and Goldberg. I am still acquiring more of Evanovich's books.


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He did bring the male characters to life better than some female narrators could do, but there were some moments that his female voices were a little too monotone.


    Do you think The Heist needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    This would be a good series but the story line needs a direct route and not some scenic tour through the woods.


    Any additional comments?

    Sometimes less is more. Too many details can cause the reader to zone out.

    It's Christmas in Half-Moon Hollow and newly turned vampire Iris Scanlon-Calix wants to make Gigi's first visit home from college as normal and special as possible. It's taken months for Iris to work up the nerve to spend time around her baby sister after her vampire transition, so she enlists help from Jane Jameson and Company to keep her blood-thirst under control and assure Gigi's safety. Gigi, on the other hand, has problems of her own, including the demise of her relationship with high school sweetheart, Ben, and a looming job interview with Ophelia Lambert, the scariest potential employer in the Hollow.

    Would you listen to I'm Dreaming of an Undead Christmas again? Why?

    I would listen to this book over and over again. This book was so funny and it brought all of the Half Moon Hallow characters together for the holidays. Every time I replay the book I find additional things I missed the first time to make me laugh or say hmmm.


    What other book might you compare I'm Dreaming of an Undead Christmas to and why?

    I would compare this book with the other Half Moon Hallow books by this author. The backdrop is the same, but the Molly Harper uses vivid language that has the reader thinking that they are really in the town and they are actually seeing what's going on.


    What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

    I loved Ronconi's voice as Dick Chaney. It very close to a Southern. Although Dick really sounds like he is from Texas.


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

    I did listen to the book in one sitting. All of this author's books I want to listen to in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    Will there be a continuation to the story? Molly please don't keep me hanging! I can't take it anymore!!! I need to know what happens next.

    You Slay Me is a lusty romance novel with amusing supernatural undercurrents. When courier Aisling Grey is dispatched to Paris to deliver a priceless dragon statue to a rich and eccentric female collector, she finds the intended recipient the apparent victim of a demonic ritual. And that's just the beginning of Aisling's discoveries.

    If you could sum up You Slay Me in three words, what would they be?

    Constant swallowing and smacking.


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

    The story has from funny parts especially the commentary from Jim the Newfoundland. Great zingers that had me sometimes wondering if my dogs are saying the same thing to me. This series has a lot of potential like the Dark Ones series. It took me 3 months to use a credit to listen to the book, because I was not impressed with the preview snippet. I was bored so I took a gamble with my credit.What I did not like about the book is the background noise. I could actually hear the narrator turning the pages as she was reading!!! The narrator has a smokey voice that sounds like she is smoking three packs a day and the character is in her 30s not her 60s. The worst part is the constant swallowing and smacking. I had to adjust the audio on my phone and radio to get through the book. I will continue to listen to the series, because the story line is interesting and Aisling's sidekicks are funny, but I do hope that the next books have better audios. The smoker's cough voice of Barbara is not too bad. I am getting use to her voice, but the smacking, paper shuffling, and swallowing needs to be addressed pronto.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The whole audio needs to be redone to eliminate all the swallowing, pages turning and smacking done by the narrator.


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

    I cannot see this book being made into a film. There were too many problems with the audio on this one to imagine the story line.

    Lizzy Tucker’s once normal life as a pastry chef in Salem, Massachusetts, turns upside down as she battles both sinister forces and an inconvenient attraction to her unnaturally talented but off-limits partner, Diesel. When Harvard University English professor and dyed-in-the-wool romantic Gilbert Reedy is mysteriously murdered and thrown off his fourth-floor balcony, Lizzy and Diesel take up his 20-year quest for the Luxuria Stone, an ancient relic believed by some to be infused with the power of lust.

    Where does Wicked Business rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book would rank among my top 5 audio books (Come to think of it all my top five audio books are Janet Evanovich.)


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Wicked Business?

    Anarchy and her blow torch. She is a riot and I would love to see her in the next book! "Wait what was I saying again?"


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Flo and Lizzie threw enchanted flour on Anarchy and turned her into a statue.


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

    This series has been a laugh out loud detective romance book.


    Any additional comments?

    I am now going through Diesel withdrawals. Need more Lizzie and Diesel!I love Lorelei King as a narrator!

Quinn is in America on a mission---to warn his Other brethren of a shadowy group willing to use murder and mayhem to bring them down. But one whiff of this Foxwoman's delicious honeysuckle fragrance and he knows that she is more than a colleague or a conquest...she is his mate.

    Would you try another book from Christine Warren and/or Kate Reading?

    I am on the fence with her books after listening to this book. The first book I listened to was Not Your Ordinary Fairy Tale. It was promising and encourage me to read this book.


    What was most disappointing about Christine Warren’s story?

    There was too much 3rd person narration. The story also rambled a lot, which caused me to tune out and fast forward parts towards the end. The story was too focused on describing the background, what everyone was doing, standing, sitting, etc. Due to the amount of detail to narration, the listener is not pulled into the story but instead the listener is subjected to a lecture.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Voice is to deep. Lacks range.


    Do you think Wolf at the Door needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    There should not be a follow-up book. This book was so bad with 3rd person narration that I would not spend another credit to listen to part 2.
