    Mac McQuarry knew better than to mix women and work. And he had enough trouble of his own: The disgraced former cop had been demoted after an explosive shakedown of the Charleston police department. But when Julie Carlson hires him to spy on her cheating husband, Mac can't resist. Not only is she drop-dead gorgeous, but her husband was a player in Mac's inglorious downfall. But what begins as a run-of-the-mill assignment spiced by a fiery flirtation suddenly spirals into a harrowing race for survival.

If only murder didn’t keep landing on her doorstep.… Dev’s five-and-dime may be doing well, but her love life is in turmoil. She’s torn between Deputy U.S. Marshal Jake Del Vecchio, who is on an undercover assignment, and her ex-beau Noah Underwood, the local doctor from a high-society family. So she welcomes the distraction when Elise Whitmore offers her a deal on antique chocolate molds that would be perfect for her Easter gift baskets. But do the molds actually belong to Elise’s soon-to-be ex-husband?

Heartbroken, she flees the city for a cottage by the sea. But will her retreat prove as idyllic as she hopes? Not if journalist Grace has anything to do with it. Grace knew Paddy a long time ago. But why can't she forget him?

    Anthea Cane is a successful actress - well, action star. Her films are mostly about how hot she looks silhouetted by fiery explosions. But Anthea is determined to prove she's more than just a body. With the role of a lifetime up for grabs - a serious adaptation of her favorite novel - Anthea sets off to her small hometown in the name of research. Cole Daniel is a blind farmer with no patience for divas, especially one who mercilessly teased him as a young boy. When Anthea shows up using a fake name and pestering him into letting her stay, he can't pass up the opportunity to torment her just a little.

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

    Yes. Lots of appeal Great to have a novel with all the bells and whistles


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Playing the Part?

    All came together amazingly well. The scene with the dam towards the end highly emotionally charged. One could feel the scene and the despair.


    What about Eva Kaminsky’s performance did you like?

    Took a while to get used to the not so good"australian" accent, but once over the changeable Accent. I was thoroughly absorbed in the great story line.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Both laughed and cried, author has a way of drawing in the reader as if you are a part of what is happening.


    Any additional comments?

    Great find a new Australian author. Looking forwards to more from her. Best to have an Australian do reading so the flavour of the story comes through. Well done Darcy Daniel.Looking forwards to more good listens/reads.
