    Eleven years ago, the Co-Ed Slayer murdered nine female college students on the Oregon State University campus. Lacey Campbell barely survived his attack, but he killed her best friend, Suzanne, whose body was never found. Now a forensic odontologist analyzing teeth and bones for the state medical examiner, Lacey is devastated when she identifies Suzanne’s remains at a crime scene. She finds comfort in the arms of ex-cop Jack Harper, and sparks fly between them.

    Would you listen to Hidden again? Why?

    I would listen to it again if I was really, really, really bored.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hidden?

    Nothing really.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kate Rudd’s performances?

    I guess I will if she reads the next two books that I already purchased, but I would rather not. When I first began listening I thought it was a computer reading program. It was that bad.

    I may have enjoyed the book more if someone else had performed it.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No.

    Waking up in a tacky coffin and wearing off-brand shoes, Betsy Taylor can't believe the horrible turn her life has taken; then she discovers she's a vampire. Soon, Betsy becomes a participant in a power struggle between the forces of darkness. With only her friend Jessica and the hunky vampire Sinclair to help her, this new "Queen of Vampires" will have a tough time getting her afterlife straight.

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

    I don't really recommend Undead and Unwed. I pretty much had to force myself to finish listening to the book. It felt as if I was listening to either a ten-year-old Molly Harper's first novel or an untalented Molly Harper want-to-be. It is not ALL terrible. There were some sentences that made me smile a bit.Some of the problem could be the narrator. I went back and forth trying to decide whether the book was as bad as it seemed to be or whether it was the way the narrator was reading it. I may try reading the ebook to see if it sounds better in my head, but I am leaning toward not purchasing anymore of Mary Janice Davidson's book.


    What three words best describe Nancy Wu’s voice?

    Emotionless, lackluster, & monotone.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    If this book were a movie, I might go see it if there was a fantastic screenwriter involved to spice it up. Even the sex scenes were dull.

    Iris Scanlon, Half-Moon Hollow's only daytime vampire concierge, knows more about the undead than she'd like. Running all their daylight errands - from letting in the plumber to picking up some chilled O neg - gives her a look at the not-so-glamorous side of vampire life. Her rules are strict; relationships with vamps are strictly business, not friendship - and certainly not anything else. But then she finds her newest client, Cal, poisoned on his kitchen floor, and only Iris can help.

    What made the experience of listening to The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires the most enjoyable?

    I listen to my audiobooks while I am driving. Listening to Molly Harper's books while driving sometimes can be dangerous because I sometimes begin laughing so much that I am in danger of driving off of the road. At the very least, anyone who might pass me probably wonders whether or not if I am sane. My daughter listens to the books while she is running or walking. She says people probably believe her to be a bit strange because she is giggling as she runs. I want more.


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

    I have never before listened to any of Amanda Ronconi's performances other than on the Molly Harper books. I would enjoy hearing her read other books.

    In this terrifying and hilarious prequel, we witness the genesis of the zombie plague in early 19th-century England. We watch Elizabeth Bennet evolve from a nave young teenager into a savage slayer of the undead. We laugh as she begins her first clumsy training with nunchucks and katana swords and cry when her first blush with romance goes tragically awry.

    If you could sum up Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls in three words, what would they be?

    Luckily, I accidently listened to this before I listened to the first book in the series. Before listening to this one, I did not realize that the series had different authors. I am a huge Jane Austen fan and was hesitant to read this series. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls was wonderfully funny. I loved it until I began listening to the first book. The two books do NOT go together at all, other than the fact that they both contain the zombie-slayiing Bennet girls, zombies, and oriental fighting. It made listening to the first book a bit frustrating. I think I would have been even MORE frustrated if I had read them in order.


    Which character – as performed by Katherine Kellgren – was your favorite?

    Lizzie, of course, was my favorite character.

    Nothing sucks the romance out of world travel like a boyfriend who may or may not have broken up with you in a hotel room in Brussels. Jane Jameson's sexy sire Gabriel has always been unpredictable, but the seductive, anonymous notes that await him at each stop of their international vacation, coupled with his evasive behavior over the past few months, finally push Jane onto the next flight home to Half Moon Hollow -- alone, upset, and unsure whether Gabriel just ended their relationship without actually telling her.

    With the first Jane Jameson book, I was hooked. I listen to audiobooks while I drive. While listening to these books, I worry that the people passing me may think I'm crazy because I am alone in the vehicle and laughing out loud. The series is extremely entertaining. Nice Girls Don't Live Forever does not disappoint.

    MacKayla Lane was just a child when she and her sister, Alina, were given up for adoption and banished from Ireland forever. Twenty years later, Alina is dead and Mac has returned to the country that expelled them to hunt her sister’s murderer. But after discovering that she descends from a bloodline both gifted and cursed, Mac is plunged into a secret history: an ancient conflict between humans and immortals who have lived concealed among us for thousands of years.

    The Fever Series has become one of my favorites, but Shadowfever left me feeling a bit disappointed. It was as if Ms. Moning just wanted to be done with the series and didn't care about the loose ends. If Karen Marie Moning really wants to satisfy her readers, she will at least write something to tie up those ends. A book or series, continuing on and starring Dani may give her readers at least a more satisfied feeling. Ms. Moning????

    On a quest to find her sister's killer, Mac is a major player in a deadly game, but with one great advantage: she knows how to find the Sinsar Dubh, an ancient book of magic so dark it corrupts anyone who touches it. What Mac soon discovers is worse than she had imagined. Surrounded by treachery, her enemies indistinguishable from her allies, she can be certain of only one thing: as All Hallows' Eve approaches, her time is running out.

    He has stolen her past, but MacKayla will never allow her sister's murderer to take her future. Yet even the uniquely gifted sidhe-seer is no match for the Lord Master, who has unleashed an insatiable sexual craving that consumes Mac's every thought - and thrusts her into the seductive realm of two very dangerous men, both of whom she desires but dares not trust.

    My daughter and I fell in love with this series right from the start. Mac started out as a sheltered, ditsy blond girl and ended as a take-no-crude-from-anyone woman. I listened to the audio books and then had to read the hard copies. It was strange to listen to Natalie Ross and Phil Gigante after having Joyce Bean read the first two. Joyce's southern accent was perfect. Natalie does NOT have the southern accent down at all. Other than that the books just keep getting better and better.

In her fight to stay alive, Mac must find the Sinsar Dubh - a million-year-old book of the blackest magic imaginable, which holds the key to power over both the world of the Fae and of Man.

    MacKayla Lane's life is good. She has great friends, a decent job, and a car that breaks down only every other week or so. In other words, she's your perfectly ordinary 21st-century woman. Or so she thinks...until something extraordinary happens.
