    No one likes to be alone during the holidays. For New York's most posh dating service, Personally Yours, it is the season to bring lonely hearts together. But Lt. Eve Dallas, on the trail of a ritualistic serial killer, has made a disturbing discovery: all of the victims have been traced to Personally Yours.

    What made the experience of listening to Holiday in Death the most enjoyable?

    I love all of the In Death books and this is one of my favorites. Susan Ericksen IS the voice of Dallas and Roarke. She was great in the first book and gets better every time. Each character has a distinct and instantly recognizable voice. I can't imagine one of these books without her.

    For years, Professor Peter Shandy has been badgered by Jemima Ames, Assistant Librarian and Annual Chairperson, to decorate his campus home for the Grand Illumination which is Balaclava Agricultural College's main fund-raising event. Now he can hold out no longer. Goaded to madness, he buries his small brick house under an avalanche of plastic reindeer, flashing lights, and fake Santa Clauses. Hooks up an amplifier blaring "All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth," locks the switches at "on," and escapes to sea on a tramp steamer....

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Rest You Merry to be better than the print version?

    Yes. I read and loved the print version years ago and was delighted to find an old friend in the Audible library. I have been an avid reader all my life, but find that I enjoy audio books even more than print - especially when they are done well, as this one is.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The mystery is good and keeps the reader guessing and suspecting first one and then another until the very end, but the true charm is in Professor Shandy himself. His over-the-top reaction to the demands to decorate his house for Christmas have been a favorite memory of mine for years. If it seems a little harsh, this is quickly balanced by his remorse when he realizes the aftermath of his action - as well as his fear of the reprisals that are likely to come his way.

    Would you listen to As the Crow Flies again? Why?

    I will definitely listen to this and all of the Longmire series again. Craig Johnson gives us wonderful characters with savvy and humor, then George Guidall brings them to life. Finishing the latest book in the series has left me feeling like my best friends have gone on a long trip and I can't wait for them to get back


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I sometimes have a suspect in mind - and sometimes it is the right one, but I never really know until the last minute. There are always plot twists that I don't expect.


    What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love audio books in general because they make the book come more alive for me. George Guidall is an exceptionally fine reader. His voices leave no doubt as to which character is talking and each voice is rich and fits perfectly with the character it portrays.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    If you love Westerns, you'll love this one.
