    On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me—well, actually, my true love, Darcy O’Mara, is spending a feliz navidad tramping around South America. Meanwhile, Mummy is holed up in a tiny village called Tiddleton-under-Lovey with that droll Noel Coward! And I’m snowed in at Castle Rannoch with my bumbling brother, Binky, and sourpuss sister-in-law, Fig.

    Story

    This book was fun, enthusiastic and an easy listen. Really enjoyed the narrator. She brings the characters to life. I was looking for something to make me feel Christmassy and this did the trick, though it was not over done.
    Didn't realize that this was a series. Think I will go back and start with book one.

    When you're all that stands between the murderous past and the fate of those you love, how far would you go to save them? When Audrey Kepler inherits an abandoned homestead in rural Queensland, she jumps at the chance to escape her loveless existence in the city and make a fresh start. In a dusty back room of the old house, she discovers the crumbling photo of a handsome World War II medic - Samuel Riordan, the homestead's former occupant - and soon finds herself becoming obsessed with him.

    Pierce Waverly, the Earl of Devonmont, has led an unabashed rogue’s life, letting no woman near his heart. Inexplicably abandoned as a child to be raised by distant relatives, he never forgave his parents, refusing to read any of his mother’s letters after his father’s death. Then came a letter that shook his resolve. A Christmas visit to Montcliff might prove his last chance to discover the truth of his past, and come to terms with the stranger he calls "Mother". But two surprises await him at Montcliff....

    This is a good story with multiple plots. Lots going on. The narrator did the many voices well and held them throughout the story. Warm and fuzzy ending. Just what I needed.

    Elfrida Phipps tries to exorcise the pain of the past and find peace, taking refuge in a rambling Scottish house called Corrydale. Almost like a magnet, Corrydale attracts various waifs and strays, each of them escaping difficult personal pasts. As the holidays approach and the weather turns foul, it seems a perfect recipe for disaster.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    This book is well written and well preformed. The story is solid (sad, heartrending and heart-warming). Well worth the read.

  • Macbeth: A Novel

    Macbeth: A Novel brings the intricacy and grit of the historical thriller to Shakespeare’s tale of political intrigue, treachery, and murder. In this full-length novel written exclusively for audio, authors A. J. Hartley and David Hewson rethink literature’s most infamous married couple, grounding them in a medieval Scotland whose military and political upheavals are as stark and dramatic as the landscape in which they are played.

    Story

    Alan Cumming's performance was amazing. What a voice.
    The story was excellent. Hartley and Hewson fleshed out the story and added some interesting twists. The perspective of the Macbeth's was also interesting.
    I had decided to read one "classic" a month and chose Macbeth thinking it would be tedious. What a pleasant surprise. This was a good listen.

    Winner of the Quill Award and the Corine International Book Prize, Diana Gabaldon is the #1 New York Times best-selling author of the Outlander series. This fourth novel featuring popular character Lord John Grey is told both from Lord Grey’s perspective and from that of Jamie Fraser, the star of the Outlander series.

    Teahouse Fox says: "Lord John 'Quixote' rides again"

    Story

    In the beginning I was irritated by the story (lack of Claire, Jamie et al.) and really missed Davina Porter but once into it I enjoyed the new characters as well as the links back to Claire and family. I got use to the narration and actually started to enjoy it. The accents are off though.
    I would recommend this book and will check out other Lord John books to listen to.
