Desecration is a story set in London during the present day. DS Jaime Brook is on the case of a murdered woman who had great bodily damage done to her. As this is going on, Brook is also dealing with the illness of a family member. We see Brook as she is trying to keep these two lives separate. In the course of investigation, Brook is drawn into a world that is on the edge.
Rosalind Ashford gives a wonderful performance. She gives each character is own voice and it is her narration, along with the author's words, that keeps you on the edge of your seat. I would highly recommend this book to my friends who want a well paced murder mystery with a twist. I look forward to listening to more books in this series along with other books Ms. Ashford narrates.
Sacrament is a strange book. I just couldn't connect with the characters. In actuality, I couldn't even finish the book. I did give it a good 3 hours and then I was done. As I didn't finish the book, I can not recommend this to anyone.
I really enjoy Mr. MacDonnell's narration and this book WILL NOT put me off from listening to another one of his books. Mr. MacDonnell did the best he could with this story.
Ingram of the Irish is a story of an abandoned baby who grows up to be an English knight. At 26 years of age, an Irish monk comes to the castle to tell Ingram that he is of Irish decent. Ingram then goes to Ireland to find his family.
The story is good bones to it but I felt that is was way longer than it needed to be.
I loved Mr. Macdonnell's narration. I will listen to another of his books. He has great sense of character and knows how to express the emotions needed without being over dramatic.
Hot steamy shifters
When Roch was at Lydia's apartment and had to convince her to come back to the bayou with him.
Lian/Roch is books 9 and 10 in the Bayou Heat series. These are the first 2 books of the series I have listen to/read. I found that I was able to follow along with the story line with out being lost. That being said tho, I am now going back to find books 1-8. I want to find out what is happening in the Bayou and with the Pantera shifters.
Ms. Beresford again does a knock out job with this book. I hope to hear her do some more of these books. She really has a grasp on the characters and made me want to continue to listen to the books.
I really enjoyed Lizzie. I liked how she was independent. I also liked how she was able to put Caroline in her place without being mean about it.
As this book is a short novella, under 4 hours, I find that it would be great for a car trip or a lazy day around the house.
Mr. Darcy's Dogs is a cute modern twist on Pride and Prejudice. I'm not a big Austen fan so I'm not familiar with the original book that these characters are based on. That being said, I didn't have any problems staying engaged in the story.
Ms. Krause is a lovely narrator. She gives each character their own voice and the pacing was very good. She had me drawn into the story and kept me wanting more. I can't wait to listen to more work by Ms. Krause.
Yes. Unlike some mysteries I had no idea "who did it". Did I have some guesses? Yes but I was very happy with how the story progressed and the ending.
I've always enjoyed Ms. Beresford's narrations. She is a narrator who gets into the story and shows all the emotion needed for each character. Her voice is pleasant and she keeps me drawn in the entire time.
Image of Deceit is a great mystery. The characters are well developed and I found myself routing for Bygie and Hall. The mystery itself is solid and I would recommend this book to my friends who enjoy a good book. I can't wait to see what Ms. Shannon comes up with next.
Winter Wonderland is an adult short story. We meet Melissa and Eric as they travel to his cabin in the woods for a romantic weekend. Melissa would love to just relax but Eric suggests going on a walk thru the snow first. While they are on their walk, one thing leads to another and it gets pretty heated. After a satisfying tryst in the woods, the return home and enjoy each other's company.
This short story would make a great jumping off point for a future novel length story. I would love to know more about Melissa and Eric.
Ms. Langola's voice is well suited for this romantic story. She gives each character their own voice, has great pacing and I would love to listen to some more of her work.
As this has mature content, I would recommend this to those listeners that are at least 18 or over.
Mr. Cohen's narration. I found him to have a pleasant voice and he was able to create characters of all ages.
I find Mr. Cohen to have a very pleasant voice. He shows just the right amount of emotion for the story and his pacing was good. He didn't sound rushed. I would love to listen to more of his work. I hope he does the next book in this series.
When Erica told Ted the truth and he was able to see her for who she really was.
Ted Saves the World is a great YA/Paranormal story. I liked the whole average guy gets powers and has to save the world story line. I felt that the characters were well developed and they seemed like true teenagers. My favorite character would have to be Ted himself. He got these new powers and really took responsibility and care with them. Did he play a few tricks? Yes, but over all he was down to earth.
I would recommend this book to my friends who like a nice YA Paranormal story. I suggest this book for those 14+ years old.
I really enjoyed the character of Dave. You could see why he did what he did and you hoped for the best. It was interesting to find out some of his back story and the events that made him the cop he is.
I listened to this book and then the very next book I listened to was Ted Saves the World, also read by Mr. Cohen. This is a court room drama and the other was more of a YA/New Adult genre book. Mr. Cohen is able to narrate each genre with ease. He is very believable as the characters in each of the books. I would love to listen to more by Mr. Cohen.
I really enjoyed this book. I liked the beginning when we meet Dave and his partner Bobby during the heated times of the Atlanta Child Murders in 1979/1980. We see what kind of people they are and thru out the book we encounter more of their back stories. The main part of the book is set in the present day. Dave stops baseball start Remo Centrella and during the course of the traffic stop an altercation occurs and Remo ends up dead. Was it self defense or was it more? We are taken thru a story that involves as the aspects of a tradition thriller. We meet people from Dave's past, Remo's life and the back stories of the lawyers are just as interesting.
I would recommend this book to my friends that enjoy a good solid legal thriller. It keeps you wanting more and Mr. Cohen, as narrator, takes you there.
I would listen again to see if I could pick up any clues that I missed the first time in the story.
I liked the fact that the mystery was solid. I didn't see any obvious holes in the story. I really enjoyed the interaction between MI-5 and the FBI.
Mr. MacDonnell has a great voice for this genre. He was able to keep me engaged in the story. You could feel the action and suspense as the story was being read. I would love to listen to more books narrated by Mr. MacDonnell.
Misdirection is just that. A story of misdirection and robbery. Lucas's first case now that he is with MI-5 is about a armor car heist. All through out the story you think he is on the right track only to be 'misdirected'. The mystery is solid and I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys police thrillers. I hope that this is the beginning a series and I can't wait to see what happens to Lucas next!
Absolutely. It was fun, witty and some of the characters made me laugh.
The wedding scene at the end of the book. (Not going into any more detail ~ don't want to spoil it!)
Ms. Emmes has a great voice for the Young Adult/New Adult genre. She really brings out the emotions of the characters. She also shows their youthfulness well.
Confession time: At the age of 40+ I have never read a Jane Austen novel ... ever. The only knowledge I have of Mr. Darcy is the fact that Bridget Jones loved him and I've seen Colin Firth dressed as Mr. Darcy. I have seen "Emma" (with Gwenyth Paltrow) and of course its modern retelling "Clueless".
That being said, I never at once felt lost in the story of the Jane Austen characters. Ms. Fowers has a gifted way of bringing everything together. This is a fun book and I would recommend it to all my friends who enjoy Jane Austen and even those, like me, who have never read one of her books.
