    The promise, as I remember it, happened this way. Happy and content in his hometown of Aurora, Minnesota, Cork O'Connor has left his badge behind and is ready for a life of relative peace, setting up shop as a private investigator. But his newfound state of calm is soon interrupted when Henry Meloux, the Ojibwe medicine man and Cork's spiritual adviser, makes a request: Will Cork find the son that Henry fathered long ago?

    What did you love best about Thunder Bay?

    I've been enjoying this series and was shocked by the change in narrator. At first I struggled along wanting to quit but hung on to enjoy another solid story by this author. I have loved David Chandler's performances and his is the voice of Cork for me. Buck Shirner does a great job but changing narrators in midstream was hard for me.


    What about Buck Schirner’s performance did you like?

    I lock into a narrator as much as the author. If I enjoy an audiobook I usually find my next book by following the narrator. Buck has a great voice and brings especially the Native American characters to life.

    In a riveting debut thriller that has drawn comparisons to masters of the genre like Dennis Lehane and Michael Connelly, Brian Freeman weaves obsession, sex, and revenge into a story that grips the reader with vivid characters and shocking plot twists from the first minute to the last.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I bought this book because its set in my hometown of Duluth, MN


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

    I have a long commute twice a day and no longer have time to read for fun. I can listen to audio books. This narrator did a great job.


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

    I enjoyed the story and was unable to guess the ending. My only quibble is that the author used Duluth, MN as the setting but then didn't use the language unique to the city. For example, he called the boats 'ships.' That is a true mark of a transplant to the city.This is a tiny complaint, as the story was well done and held my attention from beginning to end. I will buy the rest of his series.

    Richard Coulter is a man who has everything. His beautiful new wife is pregnant, his upstart airline is undercutting the competition and moving from strength to strength, his diversification into the casino business in Macau has been successful, and his fabulous Art Deco house on an Irish cliff top has just been featured in Architectural Digest. But then, for some reason, his ex-wife Rachel doesn’t keep her side of the custody agreement and vanishes off the face of the earth with Richard’s two daughters. Richard hires Killian, a formidable ex-enforcer for the IRA, to track her down before Rachel, a recovering drug addict, harms herself or the girls.

    Would you listen to Falling Glass again? Why?

    yes, I loved the main character, his personal struggles and growth.


    Any additional comments?

    The ending is a cliffhanger - makes me anxious for a sequel.

    Penniless and 34th in line to the throne, Lady Georgiana Rannoch finds herself in a truly draining state of affairs. To escape her hateful brother, Georgie accepts an invitation from the Queen to represent the royals at a wedding in Transylvania. But at the macabre- looking castle, Georgie finds the bride with blood running down her chin, and a wedding guest is poisoned.

    Druid Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert. But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shape-shifters called skinwalkers.

    What did you love best about Tricked?

    I have over two hours in the car everyday so love my audio books. I listened to all four of the Druid Chronicles without tiring. I think Luke Daniels rates close to my favorite narrator, Jim Dale, in his ability to differentiate the voices of different characters.The story kept my interest and the characters were likable. I will look for more books by Kevin Hearne!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Atticus O'Sullivan, of course, although I loved the Indian elder from the last book also.
