    As soon as Lily opens her recently purchased trunk of old clothes, she feels strange vibrations emanating from a mysterious velvet cloak. When she tries it on, Lily sees awful visions from the past. And when the antiques dealer who sold her the cape is killed, Lily suspects a supernatural force might be behind his death. Then Lily's familiar, Oscar the potbellied pig, disappears. Lily will do anything to get him back - including battling the spirit of a powerful witch reaching out from the past.

    What made the experience of listening to A Vision in Velvet the most enjoyable?

    EVERYTHING!!! The story (I adore Oscar!!) ... the narrator ... I cant pick just one.


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

    I did! I listened to it all in one day. I started it on the way to work, listened at lunch, on the way home, at the gym and while hubs played video games. I love this series!!!


    Any additional comments?

    I also own a printed copy of this book (which I read first). I had to get the audible version because Xe Sands adds depth to the characters.

    What is it about guys with guitars in their hands that makes them so irresistible, even when they are obviously self-centered jerks? If Abby and Maggie could answer that question, maybe they could finally get over Nathaniel. There's just something about him when he picks up his guitar and gets behind the microphone, something that makes sensible women act like teenyboppers instead of rational, self-respecting adults.

    The year is 1896, and college professor Concordia Wells has her hands full: teaching classes, acting as live-in chaperone to a cottage of lively female students, and directing the student play, Macbeth. But mystery and murder are not confined to the stage, especially when the death of Concordia's sister, Mary, appears to be foul play. To make matters worse, the women's college is plagued by malicious pranks, arson, money troubles, and the apparent suicide of a college official.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was. The story was a little tedious at times but overall pretty good. I had the why part of the mystery figured out from the beginning the who part I thought I did, but was wrong!


    If you’ve listened to books by K.B. Owen before, how does this one compare?

    This is the first one, I'm hoping the second one is on audible soon.


    What about Becket Royce’s performance did you like?

    She has the perfect voice for this book/time period. Late 19th Century upper-crust voice!


    Did Dangerous and Unseemly inspire you to do anything?

    Not really, but it does remind me why I love that period in history

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was a cute story. I would hardily recommend reading/listening to Book 1 before this one. Lots of references to the story that would make more sense.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    yep, there's the set up for book 3


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Karen White?

    I might, would depend on the story


    Was Murderous Muffins worth the listening time?

    it was a cute story, kind of predictable but worth the listen.

    Humanity's last encounter with aliens saw 16.2 billion people killed in a war with the Merkiaari that had spanned decades. Only by the grace of God and the use of Nanotechnology were they defeated. The result of that Nanotech? Vipers, a regiment of super soldiers tasked with protecting the Alliance and annihilating the Merki. It was a job they performed with distinction, a job they completed almost two centuries ago. A job that cost them their humanity.

    Humanity's last encounter with aliens saw 16.2 billion people killed in a war with the Merkiaari that had spanned decades. Two hundred years later, the Alliance is cautiously exploring beyond its borders again, but the survey corp is considered a mere gesture by some. General Burgton of the 501st Infantry Regiment believes a lack of expansion is leading the Alliance into stagnation. So when one small ship discovers a new alien race, it should be an easy decision to make contact, but what if the aliens are like the Merkiaari?
