    Iris Scanlon, Half-Moon Hollow's only daytime vampire concierge, knows more about the undead than she'd like. Running all their daylight errands - from letting in the plumber to picking up some chilled O neg - gives her a look at the not-so-glamorous side of vampire life. Her rules are strict; relationships with vamps are strictly business, not friendship - and certainly not anything else. But then she finds her newest client, Cal, poisoned on his kitchen floor, and only Iris can help.

    This was a very enjoyable listen. The short quips and jests that the main characters traded with one another were quite amusing and made me smile and at times laugh out loud. It has a cute love story and I would probably listen to it again when I feel the need for a little light-hearted romance.

    Ambrose Young was beautiful. He was tall and muscular, with hair that touched his shoulders and eyes that burned right through you. The kind of beautiful that graced the covers of romance novels, and Fern Taylor would know. She'd been reading them since she was 13. But maybe because he was so beautiful he was never someone Fern thought she could have...until he wasn't beautiful anymore.

    What did you love best about Making Faces?

    I really like how it wasn't a typical love story. It wasn't full of sex scenes but a lot of depth. It really made me think and I enjoyed the story line along with how it was written and read. The whole thing was absolutely enjoyable.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved the main characters, Ambrose and Fern. They were just good people that deserved one another. But I think the best character was Bailey. His zest for life even through his disability was inspiring and caused intropsect. Plus, he had a great sense of humor.


    What about Rob Shapiro’s performance did you like?

    I was skeptical at first because I'm usually not fond of male characters narrating a romance audiobook and trying to emulate the female characters in them. But Rob Shapiro did such a great job that I was so lost in the story. He was amazing.


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

    Yes! I think I need to listen to it again, as well. It really made me think about my own views on beauty and how the majority of people view other people as well as themselves. I think this really made me grow as a person. I'm still reeling with all the lessons, which is why I think I will need to re-listen again.


    Any additional comments?

    Get it! It is not a typical romance. It's so much more than that. The characters had a lot of depth and it has a story line that is atypical of the average romance books out there. There aren't any heated physical scenes--just a lote of G rated stuff--but you still feel their attraction for one another none-the-less.

    Story

    I love this story. I could literally not stop listening to it until I reached the end and even then, I wanted more!

    The author somehow pulls you in and gets you so emotionally involved that your heart hurts when the main characters' hearts break as well. Colleen also puts in "clues" or glimpses to what may happn in the future books that has made me over-obsess with the possible outcomes. And sadly, I'm so drawn in to the story that my heart hurts to believe that it may end badly!

    It is probably one of the best audiobooks I have listened to in a while and well worth the credit. I am so anxious for the next in the series.

    You won't be disappointed.

    This is a funny listen! I just loved the main character and how she just seemed to be a magnet for disaster. Although the characters did not have much depth to them, It was still a fun listen. It's a shorter audiobook than I usually listen to but it was fun and I believe worth the credit. I enjoyed it.

    Jeaniene Frost and Tavia Gilbert make a great team. Each Frost book that Gilbert narrates is great and this one is no exception!

    There were equal parts of humor, drama and suspense. Jeaniene can really engage her readers into knowing the characters and where they come from which makes the storyline so much more intriguing to the reader. It makes the reader empathize more with the characters making the reader go deeper into the story eventually getting lost into it as opposed to just listening.

    It was fast-paced from the beginning and the relationship between the main characters kept me enthralled. In the other books, I was introduced to Vlad but I learned to really like him as a character in this one.

    It is a great book and a wonderful addition to Jeaniene's writings. I can't wait to see what else she has in store for us. She has not disappointed me yet!

    Now, picking up from A Discovery of Witches' cliff-hanger ending, Shadow of Night plunges Diana Bishop and Matthew Clairmont into Elizabethan London, a world of spies, subterfuge, and a coterie of Matthew's old friends, the mysterious School of Night that includes Christopher Marlowe and Walter Raleigh. Here, Diana must locate a witch to tutor her in magic, Matthew is forced to confront a past he thought he had put to rest, and the mystery of Ashmole 782 deepens. Deborah Harkness has crafted a gripping journey through a world of alchemy, time travel, and magical discoveries.

    Story

    Deborah Harkness does a great job of intertwining the genre of fantasy into actual historical events. I loved how she somehow made it an almost historical romance while still keeping it rather modern. She has a great imagination.

    The narrator, Jennifer Ikeda does a great job on the accents and I had no trouble at all distinguishing between the characters.

    The story was very interesting from beginning to end and I found myself unable to stop listening. I believe this is a great story and I can't wait for the next book.

    Story
    Would you listen to Tiger's Curse again? Why?

    Probably not and I'll tell you why . . . the story itself was great and the narration was awesome. But I found part of the story when the main character Kelsey was just too much to handle. She acted so much like a pre-pubescent immature girl that I found it hard to get through that part of the book. If it wasn't for that, I would probably listen to it over and over.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The whole premise of the story was interesting and the adventures kept me intrigued. I also liked how it introduced me to the culture of India. It made me want to try the foods Kelsey was tasting and touch the fabrics she was wearing. Now I really want to visit India!


    What does Annika Boras and Sanjiv Jahveri bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Their inflections and accents brought a great deal to the story. As well as how Annika portrayed the voice of Ren. She made him sound and speak like a sexy, kind and sensitive man. How she did that is amazing. But I would never have captured that voice in my imagination. She did a great job.


    Any additional comments?

    It is a great book. Just get through the few chapters at the end of the book where Kelsey acts like a brat and you will enjoy it immensely. I hope that the future books in this series portrays Kelsey in a more mature light otherwise I'm not sure I can handle listening to any more!

    Arranged marriages seldom happen in modern America, so Daisy Devreaux hates her father's ultimatum: marry the humorless man he has picked for her, or go to jail. It's not much of a deal for Alex Markov, the prospective groom, either. He's got no time to indulge an uptown girl. So Alex puts Daisy to work in his traveling circus, expecting the harsh realities will break her. Instead, he finds she's got heart enough for both of them.

    I love all of the books I have read from Susan Elizabeth Phillips so far and this is one of the better ones. I love how she really creates depth to her characters. It was entertaining with humor and a great story line. This book is so great to listen to also because of the narrator, Anna Fields. She really makes the book "pop" into life. I highly reccomend this book and all others of SEP's works with Anna Fields as the narrator. It's an awesome combination.

    I couldn't help but roll my eyes on a lot of the circumstances and interactions that the main characters found themselves in. Some of the reactions were just unbelievable. I honestly had to force myself to try and finish it because I didn't want to waste my credit spent. I suggest not wasting your credit.
