    Nurse Cherry Aimless's first vacation from her hectic career in a big-city hospital takes her to visit her spinster Aunt Gertrude in thrilling San Francisco. Wistfully trading her starched white cap and dress for a bright yellow poplin frock with a flared skirt, young Cherry takes to the highway, never imagining the gay adventures that await her. Imagine her surprise to learn that Aunt Gertrude has been kidnapped! Armed only with the contents of her purse, and with the help of new chums, Cherry must save her aunt.

    Story

    I am a huge fan of lesbian pulp novels so when I saw this one I was very happy, that stopped the moment I started listening ,the narrator makes the lead lass speak like a game show host's assistant selling a brand new set of steak knifes ,the high pitch enthusiasm killed the hole thing for me,if you can get past that (good luck) the story from what I can tell is not authentic it feels fake to me ,but as I say I'm a fan of these kinds of novels ,someone reading this for the sake of reading it may have a different experience, If your into lesbian Pulp novels give this one a wide birth.

    So I was a little harsh with the first book so I must redeem my self and say that I enjoyed this one much more and will continue to read the next one in the series ,I still don't love the overly breathy narrator but I got over her and was lost in the lives of the strong doctor and sexy sheriff , every available lull in this story is filled with sex so if that bothers you this is not for you ,but I have a feeling if your a Radclyffe fan it wont.
    Good drama and Radcliffe seance of humor is alive and well ,I'm falling for these characters and I'm looking forward to seeing where the their all heading .

    Things are starting to look up for October "Toby" Daye. She's training her squire, doing her job, and has finally allowed herself to grow closer to the local King of Cats. It seems like her life may finally be settling down…at least until dead changelings start appearing in the alleys of San Francisco, killed by an overdose of goblin fruit.

    She's back after the last book in this sires I was worried but I am very pleased to say apart from an abrupt ending this was one of my favorites.
    Many secrets are answered in this book but then again that just made room for more questions.
    The humor that was missing from the last book is back I laughed out load ,Danny the troll Taxi driver is in fine form as is Tibolt who is always in fine form , our heroin continues to push her body and her mind too and beyond the limits,but Toby is always up for the challenge that's why we love her.

    An orchestral conductor has been found dead and Detective Inspector Jack Robinson needs the delightfully incisive and sophisticated Miss Fisher's assistance. Hugh Tregennis has been murdered in a most flamboyant mode by a killer with a point to prove. But how many killers is Phryne really stalking? At the same time, the dark curls and disdainful air of mathematician and code-breaker Rupert Sheffield are taking Melbourne by storm. They've certainly taken the heart of Phryne's old friend from the trenches of WWI, John Wilson. Phryne recognises Sheffield as a man who attracts danger and is determined to protect John from harm.

    For some reason Kerry Greenwood has been channeling Tennessee Williams and Arthur Conan Doyle in this attempt to get Sherlock homes and Watson together as she had always envisioned in this thinly veiled attempt she explains this at the end of the book with frankly I enjoyed more than this particulate tale ,The names have been changed to protect the innocent but I found it indulgent and tiring the padding around this affair was horrible ,Stephanie (cant carry a tune in a bucket) Daniel sings if you have been on the receiving end of this I don't need to say anymore .I love these books but this was just too ,to much .

    Story

    Maybe two stars was a little harsh for story but it was getting so over done towards the end maybe not.
    Two things put me of here the repetitiveness of the story the same fell and dialog was getting a bit thin, I always enjoyed and looked forward to Radclyffe's story's in the lesbian short stories audible has but perhaps that's the problem length,filling holes in her story's with sex seances that are not terribly imaginative ,the last few I have read fell like it's a race to get to the end rushed and clunky.
    Right if you have decided that Radcyffe is for and you don't care for my opinion that's cool but please beware of this narrator for some reason she takes a sharp breath before every sentence I was amazed she didn't pass out from lack of oxygen I found it very disruptive perhaps you like like that kind of thing but personally I'm done...

    Secret Service Agent Cameron Roberts made a promise to Blair Powell, the President's daughter - not to place her own life in danger protecting Blair - but a request from the Commander in Chief forces her to break her word. In this sequel to Above All, Honor, Cameron places duty before love and accepts reassignment as the chief of Blair's security detail, despite knowing that this decision may destroy their tenuous new relationship. As the rift between them widens, more than one woman is happy to offer Blair the company that Cam cannot.

    It pains me to say this so called second book or as I like to put it the other bit left over from the first installment ,is boring but it lacked very much in the story department which is not what I have come to expect from Radclyffe she usually delivers in spades.
    I personally would recommend Hostage Moon By Quinn same story just told better,

    The first in the Honor series, Above All, Honor introduces single-minded Secret Service Agent Cameron Roberts and the woman she is sworn to protect - Blair Powell, the daughter of the President of the United States. Cam's duty is her life - and the only thing that keeps her from self-destructing under the unbearable weight of her own deep personal tragedy. However, she hasn't counted on the fact that the beautiful, willful first daughter will do anything in her power to escape the watchful eyes of her protectors, including seducing the agent in charge.

    There is no denying that the great Radclyffe has bought us a fine character in secret service agent Cameron Roberts ,strong, hot , racked with guilt and fighting the feelings she knows she shouldn't be having for the presidents daughter ,the feisty Blair Powell, the young woman she has been appointed to protect.
    This would have been great if it didn't seemed rushed and nothing more than a set up for the sequel which you get a taste of at the end of this book .
    Personally I felt short changed it felt like she had to force every cliche in the book ,in the book and once all the boxes where ticked it was sequel time .
    She has me and I will read the next installment ,just be aware this book is just a really long prolog .

    This unsatisfying tale is told in mostly flash backs as three generations of lesbian lovers is explored ,the story telling itself is poetic and beautiful at times ,and maybe that's enough to recommend this book .Good narration, good story of old values and young enthusiasm,the disappointing thing was that it ends with a wimpier not a bang.

But in the dusty dark Ghost Train, a mummified bullet-studded corpse falls to the ground in front of them. Digging to the bottom of this long-standing mystery takes her to the country town of Castlemaine where it soon becomes obvious that someone is trying to muzzle her investigations. Meanwhile, Phryne's lover Lin Chung has his own mystery to solve.

    Phryne's sister is making her presence known ,and the very cool clam and collected Mr Lin Chung ,is playing peace maker between his family and the whoo's ,personally I could have lived with out this ,the slow pace of the elderly Chinese foke was starting to erk me.I never mind the appearance of the lovely Mr Lin but I just found myself wishing the tale would get back to our heroin .Stephine Daniels is never disappointing but having said this if this your first book in the sires your thinking of buying I would start closer to the beginning.

    I really enjoyed this one it had a different flavor some how it wasn't something I could put my finger on ,maybe it was because this particular tale is set in Sydney instead of Melbourne .We find our beautiful flapper helping out two chums and a missing Egyptian artifact ,a tad far fetched but that didn't bother me ,Ancient Egyptian curses and the gentleman's game of cricket some how are seamlessly merged into a fantastic story.
    Only Kerry could pull that off.
