    Eight-year-old Tessa Lee and her little brother, Travis, are left at a campground by their mother and her boyfriend, a crooked-nosed man named Goose. All the two children have is a tent, their bags of clothes, the firefly cloak they'd used for covers the night before, and a phone number printed in magic marker on Travis' back. Tessa Lee knows that her momma and Goose have skedaddled in a car with recently changed license plates. She just doesn't know why.

    Would you listen to Firefly Cloak again? Why?

    I loved Jenna Lamia's voice for this character. I was really touched by how the siblings bonded and how the main character managed to keep her innocense for as long as she did. It was wonderful how the grandmother kept surprising Tessa Lee with how she accepted her friends and how forgiving she was. A beautiful story of love and family ties.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character was the grandmother. She was determined to raise the children differently the second time around. When she was accepting of Tessa Lee's friend that showed how much she had changed.


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

    There is something in Jenna's voice that is so haunting. I have listened to just about everything that Audible sells that she's narrated, and have loved them all. Her southern dialect is just so perfect. Not everythingthing comes out as Georgia Peach like many other narrators do, but is regionally correct.

    You’ve lost your job as a department store lingerie buyer, your car’s been repossessed, and most of your furniture and small appliances have been sold off to pay last month’s rent. Now the rent is due again. And you live in New Jersey. What do you do? If you’re Stephanie Plum, you become a bounty hunter. But not just a nickel-and-dime bounty hunter; you go after the big money. That means a cop gone bad. And not just any cop. She goes after Joe Morelli, a disgraced former vice cop who is also the man that took her virginity....

    Would you listen to One for the Money again? Why?

    I have listened to One for the Money twice now, and would probably listen again. I LOVE the characters, story and reader, making this a win win combo for me.
