    When a powerful, decisive aristocrat undertakes to protect an absent-minded young inventress from England's enemies, he finds his orderly world turned into chaos. Merlin Lambourne's stubborn dream of flight puts her at risk, not to mention driving Ransom crazy. In spite of himself, he's oddly enchanted by this muddled miss and her eccentric ways... but can he overcome his own fears and realize her invention may be the answer to saving both their lives?

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Midsummer Moon the most enjoyable?

    The narrator made the characters come alive, not by trying to sound like a girl by raising his voice rather by changing the way each character spoke. He gave them all credible and realistic personalities that made the book come to life.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I believe the heroine with her absentminded professor mind but she was still kind and honest and strong-willed.

    Would you consider the audio edition of On Dublin Street to be better than the print version?

    Paula Costello has just become my favorite narrator. Her accents are luscious and she gives each character a believable persona. Her voice is clear her narration definitely adds to a great story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything! The story is good, characters are believable, conversation real and funny and narration is EXCELLENT!


    Which character – as performed by Paula Costello – was your favorite?

    Well Joslyn was my favorite character. She's a strong heroine with a mind of her own, even if her mind needs some help from the good doctor. But Braden's accent and his strong, dominant, caring personality is certainly my dream guy. I'd be melting if I listened to a guy with that burr too.


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

    It made me laugh out many times. The back and forth between Jos and Braden is pretty funny.
