    The Master of Natchez, Mississippi has a nasty problem on his hands. Rogue vampires - those who follow the Naturaleza and believe that humans should be nothing more than prey to be hunted - are terrorizing his city. Luckily, he knows the perfect skinwalker to call in to take back the streets. But what he doesn’t tell Jane is that there’s something different about these vamps. Something that makes them harder to kill - even for a pro like Jane.

    I don't think the description of this series does it justice. I waited a long while before finally listening to them because I thought the description sounded awful. Jane is a great character who is tough, but a girl. She has emotions, but she kicks butt. I like her. SHe seems like someone who would actually be interesting to know. She is flawed, but she is thoughtful... as in, full of thoughts. She really considers things, people, and her place in the world. Plus, vampires are fun, right?

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. I am having to force myself to finish this one. I just think that the "romance" is taking over the story. Mush Mush Mush. I want something to happen. I just don't care about Tessa or her feelings.

    What did you like best about The Ruby in the Smoke? What did you like least?

    I thought the book was interesting. There are a few moments where I felt that the characters just made ludicrous decisions and did unbelievable things. I'm not sure if I was being overly picky though. I just never fell in love with any of the characters. Sally, was difficult for me to like.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    EH.


    What about Anton Lesser’s performance did you like?

    The narration was fine. I enjoyed the performance.


    Could you see The Ruby in the Smoke being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Ahhh, but it is a movie on the BBC, I believe.


    Any additional comments?

    Eventually I may read the others, but I enjoyed the Golden Compass better.

    Fourteen-year old Sophronia is the bane of her mother's existence. More interested in dismantling clocks and climbing trees than proper etiquette at tea - and god forbid anyone see her atrocious curtsy - Mrs. Temminnick is desperate her daughter become a proper lady. She enrolls Sophronia in Mademoiselle Geraldine's Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality.

    But little do Sophronia or her mother know that this is a school where ingenious young girls learn to finish all right - but it's a different kind of finishing.

    Would you listen to Etiquette & Espionage again? Why?

    YEs. I enjoyed the narration as much as the quirky, funny, steam-punkish story. Very fun!!!


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait for the next one. It isn't quite as good as the Parasol books, but I still had a great time listening to it.

    Maisie Dobbs isn't just any young housemaid. Through her own natural intelligence - and the patronage of her benevolent employers - she works her way into college at Cambridge. After the War I and her service as a nurse, Maisie hangs out her shingle back at home: M. DOBBS, TRADE AND PERSONAL INVESTIGATIONS. But her very first assignment soon reveals a much deeper, darker web of secrets, which will force Maisie to revisit the horrors of the Great War and the love she left behind.

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I actually don't think that I would. I love the mystery genre and even though I enjoy female detective stories, as well as reading about a variety of periods in history, this book felt like it dragged on for me. I was interested in the beginning, but Maisie's back story, which interrupted the flow of the initial story, turned out to be the main focus of the book. I never actually finished listening to the overall mystery because I was so bored listening to the details of Maisie's growing up. I was surprised because I generally like stories that delve into the character's back history and how she became the "capable detective" and all that. But this just felt like it went on and on with no purpose or end in sight. Ugh. I really wanted to like it too. I need a new series to jump into, but this is not it!

    With Nero Wolfe on the job, you'd think murderers would take caution. But even the master detective can't stop a killing, especially if it's an inside job, right under the roof of his client, millionaire Otis Jarrell. What's more, it's Jarrell's own missing revolver that the killer uses. Wolfe must find the truth behind the scandals in Jarrell's ill-behaved family. One of its members sleeps the fitful sleep of the guilty, and Wolfe's getting dead-tired of murder.

    Would you listen to If Death Ever Slept again? Why?

    Yes, I enjoyed both the reader's voice and the story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Archie is always my favorite. He is fun-loving, never serious, and yet, he always gets the job done.


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

    I have only listened to Michael Prichard read the Rex Stout books. He has a good voice for the story. It isn't too theatrical. He reads clearly and alters his voice enough to hear the differences in characters as well as their personalities.
