    During the 229-year period from 1485 to 1714, England transformed itself from a minor feudal state into what has been called "the first modern society" and emerged as the wealthiest and most powerful nation in the world.Those years hold a huge and captivating story. The English survived repeated epidemics and famines, one failed invasion and two successful ones, two civil wars, a series of violent religious reformations and counter-reformations, and confrontations with two of the most powerful monarchs on earth.

    Hoping to bring some Tinseltown money to the Valley, the mayor lures a movie studio to town to shoot their next production, a big-budget Western in the classic tradition. The star is none other than ruggedly handsome—and notoriously badly behaved—Thad Perry. When the mayor decides that someone needs to keep an eye on Thad so that he doesn’t get into too much trouble, Bernie and Chet are handpicked for the job. The money is good but something smells fishy....

    Story

    I am a cat lover not dogs, but this book makes Chet one of my favorite characters. His loyalty to his owner, funny way of "telling the story", good mystery and excellent narration by Jim Frangione are guarantees to put any future books in this series on my wish list.

    Personal vendettas, hidden treasure, and a monkey named Carl will send bounty hunter Stephanie Plum on her most explosive adventure yet. Dom Rizzi robbed a bank, stashed the money, and did the time. His family couldn't be more proud. He always was the smart one. Joe Morelli, Dom Rizzi, and Dom's sister, Loretta, are cousins. Morelli is a cop, Rizzi robs banks, and Loretta is a single mother waiting tables at the firehouse. The all-American family.

    Story

    I was glad Janet Evanovich brought one of the previous characters back. It was like meeting old nutty friend again. Lula's voice by Lorelei King is another reason to listen to this book, especially at the end of long winter day.

  • Shards of Honor

    I>Shards of Honor is the novel in which Lois McMaster Bujold introduced the science-fiction world to Barrayar and Aral Vorkosigan, Beta Colony and Cordelia Naismith. From this beginning the author has created a multigenerational saga spanning time as well as space. Bujold is generally recognized as the current exemplar of the character-based science-fiction adventure story.

    Lifelong Reader says: "First story in the Miles Vorkosigan series"
    "Very good introduction to Vorkosigan novels"

    Story

    Lacks the humor of Miles Vorkosigan (who comes in later books), but has the strong will and courage of his mother - must read for better understanding of future events. I listened to it after already reading and listening few books about Miles. The narrator (Grover Gardner) performance makes these excellent books even better.
