    Seven-year-old Henry Day is kidnapped and renamed "Aniday" by changelings, ageless beings who inhabit the woods near his home. The changelings also leave behind one of their own, who flawlessly impersonates Henry except for one noteworthy detail: the new Henry is a prodigiously talented pianist.

    The idea of the book was very intrigueing. This is the type of story I like - fantasy. Unfortunately, the book was disappointing. I got bored. I am not sure if anything actually happened in the book.....

    Harry Haristeen, Mrs. Murphy, Pewter, and Tee Tucker return for this cozy tale from the ,New York Times best-selling tandem of Rita Mae and Sneaky Pie Brown. When Harry’s beloved Aunt Tally approaches her 100th birthday, her alma mater schedules a birthday celebration that doubles as a fundraiser. But then a member of the alumnae association disappears. Her car is on campus, yet she’s nowhere to be seen—and Tucker has sniffed out traces of human blood.

    Anne says: "Not up to previous"
    "too much preaching"
    Overall

    I have so enjoyed Rita Mae's and Sneaky Pie's Mrs. Murphy's mysteries and the animals speaking to each other. This one was a bit disappointing as there was too much preaching about a) the environment and b) politics and etc. It was not aweful just not as fun as the previous ones. I hope I like her next one better....

    In the life of Precious Ramotswe, a woman duly proud of her fine traditional build, there is rarely a dull moment, and in the latest installment in the universally beloved No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series, there is much happening on Zebra Drive and Tlokweng Road. Mma Ramotswe is experiencing staffing difficulties. Mr. J.L.B. Matekoni asks to be put in charge of a case involving an errant husband. But can a man investigate such matters as successfully as the number-one lady detective can?

    "The great story of the Good Husband of Zebra Drive"
    Overall

    I received my very first audio book from a friend years ago. I hadn't listened to this one for a while, thinking "this is not really my kind of book." After a while, I decided I was really liking audio books so I decided to try the McCall Smith book. I loved it! Loved the gentle story, with much dignity, and the reader's voice and characterization is wonderful! His new book is just terrific! I am now a McCall Smith fan!!! This is a wonderful series. Take a look.

    This is a darkly hilarious coming-of-age novel and a richly plotted suspense tale told through the distinctive voice of its heroine, Blue van Meer. After a childhood spent moving from one academic outpost to another with her father, Blue is clever and possessed of a vast lexicon of knowledge. But when a drowning and the shocking death of a teacher lead to a confluence of mysteries, Blue is left to make sense of it all with only her gimlet-eyed instincts and cultural references to guide - or misguide - her.

    "Disappointed"
    Overall

    Didn't care for it; apparently not my type of thing. Yes, it really was a coming of age story as described, but I didn't really care for the "stream of conciousness" narrative nor the reader. Sorry.

    Elizabeth Peters has attracted a huge following of listeners with her ability to deliver snappy stories, witty dialogue, and appealing characters. In Naked Once More, Peters creates a heroine you won't soon forget, the flamboyant Jacqueline Kirby, popular author and outspoken ex-librarian.

    Overall

    I have liked this authors books of this type (more modern, adventure with romance), but this one fell short. Also, I don't especially like this reader so a so-so book was made un-enjoyable.

    In the entire canon of tough-girl sleuths, gumshoes, PIs, detectives, and investigators, there's no one quite like Fritillary Quilter. A New York arson investigator, a sassy, fresh spirit with a nose for arson and an eye for dubious burn patterns, "Tilly" pushes the envelope of the traditional female investigator with a young, hip outlook and indefatigable zeal.

    Jenvictoria says: "Great!"
    "Weeping-OK"
    Overall

    Well, I liked the idea (fire investigators) and the characters and the interactions between the two main characters. It is just that it was a first book (in a series?) and so there was a lot of introductory "setting the stage" kind of stuff that made the book a little slow. I will try the next one and hope it moves along better. In general, it was ok.
