    Story

    Carlin Reed lives in fear, off the grid, moving from place to place. So Battle Ridge, Wyoming, a small town in the middle of nowhere, seems like a good place to lie low for a while. But after becoming cook and housekeeper to cattle rancher Zeke Decker, Carlin suspects that she’s made her first mistake. Rugged, sexy, and too distracting for his own good, Zeke is pure temptation mixed with something deep and primal that makes Carlin feel almost safe. Soon things are getting way too hot in the kitchen.

    Would you try another book from Linda Howard and Linda Jones and/or Maggie Wheeler?

    I would read another book by these authors but I would not listen to another book read by this narrator.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I felt the book had too much mundane filler. It would have been a great 6 hour book. It reminded me of the more basic romance novels, but again the narrator ruined what was good about the book.


    How could the performance have been better?

    This narrator has a rather monotonous voice that grates on ones nerves.


    Do you think Running Wild needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Let me say Linda Howard is in the top three of my favorite authors. I will likely read anything that bears her name. I listened to 'Blood Born' and loved it.

    It's been thirteen years since Lucy Sheridan was in Summer River. The last time she visited her aunt Sara there, as a teenager, she'd been sent home suddenly after being dragged out of a wild party - by the guy she had a crush on, just to make it more embarrassing.

    Mary Beth Maschner says: "Bad narrator, cookie cutter story"
    "Great plot with lots of action."

    Where does River Road rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Very good book but narrator although voice pleasant made character voices all the same making it hard to follow who is actually speaking.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    No character voice difference.

    Blair Mallory, last seen in To Die For, has already survived one murder attempt. Now, while planning her wedding and dealing with holiday-season madness, Blair once again dodges a bullet. Or, more precisely, a Buick. And though the driver's identity remains a mystery, his or her murderous intentions are all too clear.

    SassiKassi says: "This narrator is great!"
    "Nuttiest heroine."

    Story
    Would you listen to Drop Dead Gorgeous again? Why?

    I had read the book and it was even better with Ms Bean narrating. This is a comedy, light mystery and love story rolled into one. Written in first person so it is nutty Blair's convoluted mind telling the story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Blair 's outlook on men and women's relationships. The hero is smitten and hangs onto his woman on this crazy ride.


    What about Joyce Bean’s performance did you like?

    She is the perfect voice for crazy Blair.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed non stop thru out the book.


    Any additional comments?

    Linda Howard has not written another first person book other than this two book series.. Wish there was a way to resurrect this heroine for another a amusing jaunt into her view of the world.

    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 did you love best about The Care and Feeding of Stray Vampires?

    Light hearted story. Loved that vampires have come "out of the coffin" and are main streaming with humans. Had to continue with other books in the series which are just as entertaining.


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

    Loved the reader, This was my first experience with Amanda as the reader. She was a perfect Jane.
