Now she strives to maintain her sanity and her soul while juggling both vampire abilities and the powers of a siren.  Not every bride needs a bridesmaid who can double as a bodyguard.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I have enjoyed all these books in this series and I think it took a to a new level when she had to live life as the royal do and see the other side. I did enjoy this book and look forward to the next one.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I think when the angel to came to help when she was trapped. I love to see this explored more in the future. I think it is good that she is not seen as evil and that she has a chance at faith just like the rest of the people in the story.


    Any additional comments?

    I love these books and always look forward to the next one.

    What made the experience of listening to Still Life in Brunswick Stew the most enjoyable?

    What other book might you compare Still Life in Brunswick Stew to and why?

    Lowcountry Boil (A Liz Talbot Mystery) they seem a lot alike.

    Great Performance I enjoy listening to her


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When she realizes her friend is dead. Also when she realizes that Luke is keeping her a secret from his family. I do have to say in this book I am more of a Todd fan.

    In Halo, Georgia, folks know Cherry Tucker as big in mouth, small in stature, and able to sketch a portrait faster than buckshot rips from a ten gauge - but commissions are scarce. So when the well-heeled Branson family wants to memorialize their murdered son in a coffin portrait, Cherry scrambles to win their patronage from her small town rival. As the clock ticks toward the deadline, Cherry faces more trouble than just a controversial subject.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Murder of Crows to be better than the print version?

    First I am not always a big fan of other world books but in the first one I was hooks. I started it and could stop I was captured but all the events happening in the book. I also like all the new people added to the store. I also like how the relationship between Meg and Simon are growing. I do believe allowing us to see that are more things more dangerous that the others was good also. This book was full action and nonstop things that it was hard to find a place to pause. The story behind Montgomery and the new man in his wife life left me wanting to know more I hope we get to see more of that in the next book. Also were Simon gets the feeling they need to follow the stranger at the end it left us wanting more. I do look forward to the next book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I like Tess, Vlad, Simon, Meg, and Sam. I am starting to like Burke as well. I am not sure about Nathan but he is growing on me. I have to say my favorite is Henry the Bear he is so laid back and the ponies.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I have to say when Skippy brought the mouse to Meg to play with.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Jane vision of the Honey comes true that was so wonderful to see her get some peace.

    The bestselling Dixie Divas mystery series continues! Trinket and her pals are, once again, caught in the middle of a murder scene... "Professor Sturgis is dead. What I'd thought was an untidy pile of clothing tumbling out of the closet turned out to be a professor with whom Bitty had just quarreled that very morning."

    Would you listen to Divas and Dead Rebels again? Why?

    I actually came across these just by chance but I decided to give Dixie Divas a try and I was hooked. I have never laughed so hard in my life. My husband would actually ask me what so funny I wouldn't realize I was laughing. The relationship between Bitty and Trinket is one the best older women relationships I have heard in a while. Let's not forget the sexy men in the book Jackson Lee and Kit. I love how these relationships have progressed in the books. The trouble all the divas seem to find there self in is so funny. If you are going through a bad time or just need something to lighten your world I suggest these books. I really did enjoy them and hope the fifth one will be on audio soon. Oh one more thought I just hope my relationship with my husband is as much fun as Trinkets parents is.


    What about Karen Commins’s performance did you like?

    Oh she is awesome with her story telling


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Anytime Trinket thought Bitty was in trouble she always put her own fears aside and went to help her. Also the way the relationship between the couples is growing.

    What made the experience of listening to Optical Delusions in Deadwood the most enjoyable?

    This one was more exciting the last one. I have to admit I love how she has several secrets going on in the books to leads up to the next book. I have to say I love the old man in this story he is such a good laugh. I love the new member like Coop. I do want to see her and Doc go some where and stop letting others get in the way.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Optical Delusions in Deadwood?

    When her Aunt tell her about how frantic Doc was to find her and how she he deserves to hear from her. How her aunt tells her she gave up enough in her life that it is time to fight for what she wants and deserve. It was a very heart warming thing to hear.

    She did another great job

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I have to say Doc and Violet because the seem to be at such odds with each other but at the same time there is a big attraction. Now her son Layne is a hoot as well as Abby she seems to be more that she can handle.

    The last thing patrol cop Kate Prospero expected to find on her nightly rounds was a werewolf covered in the blood of his latest victim. But then, she also didn't expect that shooting him would land her in the crosshairs of a Magic Enforcement Agency task force, who wants to know why she killed their lead snitch. The more Prospero learns about the dangerous new potion the MEA is investigating, the more she's convinced that earning a spot on their task force is the career break she's been wanting. But getting the assignment proves much easier than solving the case.

    Yes because it is full of excitement. The story of Katie and her brother actually was a good. it is sad how they come to be on there own but I also like how she is being honest about her feelings. I like to also she were her relationship with Drew goes he seems like someone who is full of secrets of his own but at the same times already knows she is also hiding her own. Let's just say wow sexy bad guy John really seems to be hiding more and I look forward to the next book to see what he is going to do next under the false pretense of a good guy.


    What does Morgan Hallett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Morgan did a wonderful job this was my first time to listen to her but she did a great job bring it to life.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When she almost lost Danny and also when she had to be honest with him about her Mom. There were several.

    When Evan Trueblood blows into town looking for his wife, Molly, he’s convinced that she came to see her best friend, Jane. But it seems like the witch made it to New Orleans and then disappeared without a trace. Jane is ready to do whatever it takes to find her friend. Her desperate search leads her deep into a web of black magic and betrayal and into the dark history between vampires and witches. But the closer she draws to Molly, the closer she draws to a new enemy - one who is stranger and more powerful than any she has ever faced.

    Where does Black Arts rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have read all these books and I have to say in this book I was so excited with all the action and also with all the new things we learn in this book. I love how Jane and Beast come to a understanding about what they are meant to be. I was so emotional in a couple parts of this story but I'm a Brusier fan and not much of a Rick fan so I hope to see more of him in the next book. I also have to say I loved having the kid in this book I just love little E.J. and let just say powerful Angie Baby. She is such a sweetie. This book has all kinds of action, emotional, and thriller. We all see a soft side to Leo but I won't spoil that for you. As usual I love the brothers. If you have not read the others in the series I suggest you pick them up because this is a kick butt series.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Black Arts?

    When Jane had to get on to Angie for using magic on her parents I just love how she handled it and I love seeing the softer side to Jane and Beast.


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

    I just love her southern voice and she does a great job.


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

    It made me do both. I do have to say the scene at the party with Rick really made me cry for her it was sad. I laughed at a lot of the smack talk between her and the brothers. Let's just say the kids really made me laugh with them just being kids. Angie with her secret use of magic it is really funny also. The emotion she share with the others and her friendship with Molly.
