    Would you consider the audio edition of In the Garden of Disgrace to be better than the print version?

    I think the audio edition equals the print/ebook version - having read/heard both, I think it just depends on the mood you are in whether to read or listen.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of In the Garden of Disgrace?

    I, too, loved the dual scene...very vivid!


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

    Journey back in time - to an era of elegance


    Any additional comments?

    I love Cynthia Wicklund's historical novels - they are vivid, evocative, and captivating. I felt the transition to audio worked perfectly.

    Because of one reviewers note on an 'echo' - I did not hear that when I listened on my computer with a set of headphones at all. So I think the device you listen to an audio book on is important.

    There are distortion issues on older ipods, cheap MP3 players...so please do both the writer and narrator the justice of hearing an audiobook on a quality piece of equipment!

    Burke Winslow stands at the altar, ready to marry his business partner in a marriage of convenience. The minister solemnly asks: "If anyone here knows why this man and this woman shouldn't be joined in holy matrimony, let him speak now or forever hold his peace." A rain-soaked, bedraggled Ally Fletcher limps down the aisle and shouts, "Stop the wedding!" What follows is a funny, sexy romp that proves when there's love, passion never dies, it just smolders away until you toss some gasoline on it.

    If you could sum up Still the One in three words, what would they be?

    Sexy, sassy & funny


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love romantic comedies and this is a fantastic listen as well as a read. The characters work well off each other, the dialogue was quick and fun, and the audio production was
    crisp and clear!


    What does Robin Kohn Glazer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrator, Robin Kohn Glazer was very good. Her voice adjusted nicely to differentiate between the characters. The production quality was crisp and clear.

    It's always great when the 'heard word' makes a video in your brain!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I loved the opening ...where poor Ally arrives looking like a mud-puppy to stop the wedding..priceless. Makes you laugh out loud, because you are just able to 'see' it for yourself.


    Any additional comments?

    I've purchased all Joan Reeves' audio books and they are classy and well done.

    What would you do if the gynecologist subbing for your regular doctor turned out to be your old high school crush? Successful psychologist Dr. Jennifer Monroe does what any normal, well-adjusted woman would do. She makes an excuse to send the doctor and nurse from the room, dives into her clothes, and flees! Unfortunately, her running away makes conscientious Dr. Penrose conclude she has some kind of sexual hangup. He's determined to refer her to another doctor for her health's sake. If he can just talk to her, he'll suggest counseling for what he thinks are emotional problems.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Just One Look is a fabulous listen - it's funny, fast, and vivid. It would be another great exercise audio book - but you won't be able to tell if it's your workout that is making your heartrate rise or this book!


    Which character – as performed by Felicia Greenfield – was your favorite?

    Felicia Greenfield was spot on with all the characters - but frankly when she became Dr. Matt - it was priceless.


    Any additional comments?

    Just One Look was such a great listen, I went back and purchased the ebook. I love doing that so I have a read as well. The writing and performance were both exceptional - so don't hesitate to purchase this romantic comedy.

    Beautiful Katherine Collins, a young woman from nowhere, suddenly had it all. Her promising career as an up-and-coming cabaret singer in a swinging 1930s hot spot known as Simply Blues lands her smack in the middle of a tug of war the likes of which she'd never dreamed possible. On one side stands the man who had opened the door to her career but who refuses to allow himself any further claim to her heart, and on the other stands a man who will do anything to claim Katherine as his own.

    Where does Time Heals Everything rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a fantastic audio book. The writing is evocative and the narration is very, very good. I like the fact the narrator was a man - John Podulka - as the primary characters are two men in love with the same woman.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved Kat - she was star-crossed in so many ways. Vulnerable, talented, lonely - she reminded me of Elsa in Casablanca


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

    John Podulka brings the main character - Nick to a vibrant life. He does a great job as Ash as well...and he's brilliant in quite a few spots as Kat.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, but that would be a spoiler!


    Any additional comments?

    Loved the author's writing...have purchased Linda Swain's Chasing Destiny and really enjoyed that novel/audio book as well.

    Good girls just can't win! High school principal Judy Anne Palmer was always a good girl who never did an impulsive, rebellious thing. Ever. And look where it got her! One night in Dallas, she meets a man and decides to indulge in a liberating night of passion - liberating her from the stigma of being the oldest living virgin north of the Rio Grande. After all, she'll never see her one-night Romeo again. Unfortunately, the night doesn't turn out exactly the way she planned, and her one-night Romeo isn't one-night stand material.

    What made the experience of listening to Romeo and Judy Anne the most enjoyable?

    This was a full, rich story. I went and bought the book as I wanted to savor it with more than my ears.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Judy Anne of course. This woman deserved so much better with all she did for her family. And her 'Romeo' was a perfect match, even if it took her a while!


    Which character – as performed by Christine Padovan – was your favorite?

    As she was all the characters - that's a hard call. She did a nice narration.


    Any additional comments?

    The author does a fantastic job with her characters and the descriptions are wonderful. As I said it made me purchase the ebook - that's quite a compliment.

    Rusty McCenery is the powerful witch of Avalon, living in a world much like ours, just more magical. She's beautiful and talented, and the master of her destiny - until two men shake her very foundation with their protestations of love. Ian McAllister is as handsome and almost as powerful as Rusty, but can't be trusted. She leaves him behind but their whirlwind romance changes her life forever. Alex Cameron, a one-time lover who finds her again many years later, offers Rusty a very different type of love....

    What did you love best about Chasing Destiny?

    I read the ebook and it was fantastic and held my attention even though this is not my normal reading genre.

    The audio book was a grabber - the narrator, just filled the characters with life and a richness that made the story even better.


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

    This is my first Veronica Giguere narration - but she is certainly a top-notch reader/character actress.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I found the entire story captivating and quite moving...bravo to author and narrator.
