    The fight to free the Earth from alien domination began in Live Free or Die, and continued in Citadel. Now Tyler Vernon and his troops aboard the gigantic battle station Troy face a desperate battle with the forces of galactic tyranny. And the very survival of the Earth and its people is not all that is at stake. The galaxy itself must choose to live free or die - and if the tyrants win this battle, darkness will fall across the galaxy for millennia to come.

    In a New York City fifty years in the future, Detective Eve Dallas tracks down those who break the law - including the ones sworn to uphold it. Eve Dallas and her partner, Peabody, are following up on a brutal, senseless crime - an elderly grocery owner killed by three stoned punks for nothing more than kicks and snacks. And for the first time, Peabody is primary detective on the case, which means she has to get used to a new level of authority and responsibility. Good thing she learned the ropes from a master like Eve. But after rounding up the perps, Peabody stumbles upon a much trickier situation.

    Where does Treachery In Death rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    I believe I like this one best of the whole series.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Eve has shown so much personal growth over the course of the series but she is really in control of herself in this one. The conversation between her and Peabody about what made them become cops was extraordinary. Her insight into the feelings of Meara and Whitney and their dissappointment at the situation would not have fit in any earlier books


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

    Her distinct voices for each character is always good but there were alot of added people in the cop shop in this one and it was easy to keep straight all the conversations. You could almost hear the tears in Peabody's voice a couple of times.


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

    I had a terrible time turning this one off. I got a lot of exercise at the gym the last two days because it was a good opportunity to listen, lol. I even listened about a half hour after turning out the light last night while my husband snored next to me. Thank goodness for earbuds.


    Any additional comments?

    I am already mourning the fact that there are only two full books and one short story left before I catch up to Ms. Robb.

    Since she was a little girl, Emma Grant has always loved romance. So it's really no surprise that she has found her calling as a wedding florist. She couldn't ask for a better job. And on the surface, Emma's love life seems to be thriving. Though men swarm around her, she still hasn't found Mr. Right. The last place she's looking is right under her nose. But that's just where Jack Cooke is.

    Story

    Have been a JD Robb fan for years but just recently started reading Nora Roberts serieses.
    This series is about four friends who run a wedding planning business together. Enjoyable listen, narrator is good, but this one was alot shorter than the first. Didn't seem to be as much build up in the story.

    Loving the whole Eve Dallas series, sometimes the short novellas leave me wanting more. But this one was complete and fun to listen to. Susan Ericksen does a great job on the voices even the "ghost". So fun to listen to Peabody getting the willies.

    Judith Ivey brings to life the wonderful southern charm of Vivienne and her relationship with her oldest child.

    On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.

    Russell says: "Glad I Listened to 11-22-63 First"
    "Good book, better narrator"
    Overall

    Had trouble turning it off at times although there were parts of the story I could have done without. The narrator's character voices kept running through my head long after I had finished the story. I also kept casting the movie version while listening. Wouldn't Matt Frewer make a great Phil Bushey?
