  • Sarah's Cottage

    Recently married to Charles, Sarah is furnishing a cottage in Scotland and starting on a life in sharp contrast to their wartime experiences. Their full entrance into village life is helped by Sarah's delightful grandparents, who have given them the land on which they have built their cottage.

    Elizabeth Lyle says: "Charming and peaceful Scottish novel"
    "Good but it's part 2 of a duology"
    Overall

    This book is good but to me it lacks something without first having read Sarah Morris Remembers - or listened to it. Sarah Morris Remembered tells the pre-war and wartime love story of Sarah and Charles Reed which is even better I think than Sarah's Cottage. I hope Audible will add Sarah Morris Remembered!

    Introducing Maud Silver, a deceptively innocent old lady detective. This is the first and one of the best. I hope Audible can add more of Patricia Wentworth's books!

    A smash hit has drawn a standing-room-only crowd to one of the final performances at a London theater. The surging throng carries along a man standing in the queue. A woman right in front of him turns to him, objecting to being pushed. As she does so, he drops to his knees and keels over. At first, those around him think he has fainted, but soon it's clear that he has been stabbed to death by a wicked dagger.

    I agree with the previous poster - this is an excellent mystery. I've checked the publisher's website and they do have Daughter of Time as well - please Audible, consider adding it! And please, some other audio publisher please consider the remaining novels, Brat Farrar, The Franchise Affair, Miss Pym Disposes, and The Singing Sands. Thanks!

  • Dead as a Doornail: Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire Mystery # 5

    New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Charlaine Harris has won an Anthony Award for her one-of-a-kind Sookie Stackhouse mystery series. Sookie, a Louisiana cocktail waitress, skilled telepath, and friend to vampires, has a dedicated fan base that grows larger every day.

    Anne says: "Telepathic barmaid, shapeshifters, vampires!"

    Overall

    I enjoyed this audiobook a lot. The narrator does a good job of creating the voices and is pleasant to listen to. I've previously listened to "Dead Until Dark" that had an interesting twist - a female narrator, with one male narrator doing all the male characters, which was quite effective. So where are the other titles? I'd love to have the whole series available!
