    What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas...except when it doesn't. Kitty and Ben return to their werewolf pack in Denver only to discover an invisible evil that smells of brimstone and plays with fire has followed them home. Stalking the whole pack, it leaves a charred trail of ashes and death across the city. Kitty seeks help from Rick, the master vampire of Denver, as well as from the paranormal investigators on a popular reality television show.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Love Marguerite Gavin's readings, she brings the characters to life. However, living in Boulder, some of her local mispronunciations of local landmarks make me crazy. For example, it's not El-Itches, it's E-Litches. When creating local flavor, it would be a good idea to check these details...


    What other book might you compare Kitty Raises Hell to and why?

    Any of the Dead Wiitch Walking series.


    What about Marguerite Gavin’s performance did you like?

    Her presentation of the different characters.

    The story begins 30 years after Francis' death, when Father Leo, Francis's closest friend, is dying. Bound to a vow of silence, Leo sends a cryptic message to Conrad, his own favorite student, connecting him with an unlikely companion, 16-year-old Sister Amata. The two begin to search for the truth about St. Francis, a truth that will shake the faith of the masses to the core and bring into question the foundation of the Franciscan Order.

    "Interesting Story Poor Recording"
    Overall

    If you like historical fiction, especially with a religious twist, this is an interesting story. If not, might not be the best for you--I happen to really like historical and religious stories so I found this fascinating. The downside was that there are some very strange things in the recording quality--spliced in bits that almost sound like a different reader.

  • I Don't Know How She Does It: The Life of Kate Reddy, Working Mother

    The surprise hit of the year, Allison Pearson's debut novel is garnering critical and fan raves. Publishers Weekly calls I Don't Know How She Does It "delightfully fast moving...with dozens of laugh-aloud moments and many tenderly touching ones," and Booklist applauds this "compelling manifesto on the plight of working mothers that manages to be both angry and funny."

    "Oddly depressing"
    Overall

    I have to admit, I couldn't get through the end of this book. I had the thought that it would improve, but the story just seemed so endlessly discouraging and bleak. There were mildly humorous bits, just not enough to sustain my interest. The narrator is great, and I think the book may seem funnier to other people than it did to me. It seemed like all the bad parts of being a working mother and none of the good things.
