    Fourteen-year-old Carey and six-year-old Jenessa have lived in the woods with their mother for as long as they can remember. Now abandoned, they must fend for themselves - until they’re found by Carey’s father and thrust into a bright and perplexing new world of comfort. Carey desperately wants to believe in this new reality but is held back by loyalty to her mentally ill mother, who gave Carey her violin and taught her to play the music that helps her survive.

    What made the experience of listening to If You Find Me the most enjoyable?

    The reader was excellent and Emily Murdoch is a wonderful writer. Her writing can only be described as lyrical. But beyond the writing, the story was also compelling and made it hard to stop


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

    I actually could not stop listening and devoured the book in a day

    A Signature Performance: Four-time Emmy Award winner David Hyde Pierce delivers an air of lovable self-importance in his rendition of the classic social satire that remains as fresh today as the day it was published.

    Miranda Puckett has failed at every job she’s ever had. Her mother just wants her to come home, join the family law firm, and settle down with Jason, the perfect lawyer boyfriend. But when Jason turns out to be a lying cheater, Miranda seizes on a job that gets her out of town: long-distance vampire transportation. Her first assignment is to drive vampire Collin Sutherland from Washington to sleepy Half Moon Hollow without incident—no small feat for a woman whom trouble seems to follow like a faithful hound dog!

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Driving Mr. Dead the most enjoyable?

    The story was very enjoyable and quite funny. The heroine was quirky and endearing. The vampire was quite funny at first, but gradually morphed into your typical gorgeous, fantasy ideal-male character that is so popular in chick-lit. That's a bit cliche but the fun interactions between the two characters made up for it.


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

    Amanda Ronconi's is an amazing performer. She is definitively a voice actor, not simply someone who read books. She was able to imbue the already vibrant text with inflections and nuances. Her voices and accents are dead on. I was really impressed, and will look for other books she has performed in.


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

    Most definitely. I just wished the book was longer

    Eveline Armstrong is fiercely loved and protected by her powerful clan, but outsiders consider her "touched." Beautiful, fey, with a level, intent gaze, she doesn't speak. No one, not even her family, knows that she cannot hear. Content with her life of seclusion, Eveline has taught herself to read lips and allows the outside world to view her as daft. But when an arranged marriage into a rival clan makes Graeme Montgomery her husband, Eveline accepts her duty -unprepared for the delights to come.

    Story
    Where does Never Seduce a Scot rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I listened to this in one in two long sessions and stayed up a bit too late to listen to it. Obviously something about it captivated me. However by the time I got to the second half of my book, I was rolling my eyes quite a bit.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Ending was pretty predictable, not that's a bad thing in my book. I don't believe that every book must have some surprise ending.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration was very good. The Scottish accent wasn't very authentic, but that's because I have an ear for it, having a Scottish husband. Most people won't notice. She didn't manage to do a deaf accent, but that would asking too much probably. She still did a great job, and injected a lot of life into the dialogue


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

    The Cheese factory ? Seriously this book was seriously cheesy.


    Any additional comments?

    I must have liked this book since I listened to all of it, which is a rarity for me these days. It was suspenseful and kept you reading. However as you progress into the book you begin to grow uneasy. This is like watching a science fiction film with weak sci-fi elements. Scottish men of that era simply did not act like that. Why even make the characters Scottish. Is this a thing ? An excuse to put a topless guy in a kilt on the cover? There was nothing especially Scottish about the culture described in the book, except for for using the words "clan" and "laird".
