    Ryon Hunter sees dead people - spirits that beg him for help in ways he can't understand. He'd do anything to end the torment, until a beautiful spirit appears to him with a plea he can't ignore: Help me . . . I'm alive. The woman is wildlife biologist Daria Bradford, mortally wounded after encountering a white wolf, calling to Ryon through a rare Psy gift. When Ryon locates Daria in the Shoshone National Park, it is almost too late, but nursing her back to health at the Alpha Pack compound brings a new complication...

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If you like the fact that the two lead characters care more for having sex more than they do about anything or anyone else than this book is for you.


    What was most disappointing about J. D. Tyler’s story?

    I like Kristen Potter for the most part but not in this book. Her voice just didn't convey any other emotion than lust, but then that was all the book conveyed too. As far as story line goes it was ok but I couldn't get past some things and didn't finish it. I know it's a love/fantasy story but it was too much on lust. And the main male character was more concerned on if he came back from the op than if THEY came back.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kirsten Potter?

    Lorelei King would be terrific!


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment

    Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is back, packing a whole lot of attitude. This time around, she's on the trail of Kenny Mancuso, a boy from the working-class burg of Trenton, New Jersey, who has just shot his best friend. Fresh out of the Army and suspiciously wealthy, Mancuso's also distantly related to Joe Morelli, a vice cop with questionable ethics, a libido in permanent overdrive, and a habit of horning in on Stephanie's investigations.

    Johanna Parker"s performance was great. Didn't know if I could get use to the southern accent but it didn't take long for me to realize I worried over nothing.

    Car mechanic Mercy Thompson has always known there was something different about her, and not just the way she can make a VW engine sit up and beg. Mercy is a shapeshifter, a talent she inherited from her long-gone father. She's never known any others of her kind. Until now.

    Which character – as performed by Lorelei King – was your favorite?

    Love all the characters, can't pick out any as a favorite. They all are.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I dont know if having to listen to the narrator would be worth going further in the series. The story held my interest but the narrator had me torn between listening to the end or turning off the book and asking for a refund. Who thought she was qualified to narrate. i would warn my friend that the narration is horrible.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Harry, he's a person who thinks of others before hisself.


    What didn’t you like about Justine Eyre’s performance?

    Sounds like she is talking in a snobbish manner.

    America's favorite bounty hunter is back behind the wheel in her fifth hilarious, high-octane thriller. Out of bail skippers and rent money, Stephanie Plum strikes out on her own. Okay, so a scumball blows himself to bits on her first day of policing a crack house, and the sheik she was chauffeuring steals the limo. But hey, nobody's perfect.

    Diane says: "Content dampened by quality of reading."
    "Why abridged and why Debi Mazar."
    Overall

    I love Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum books. I was hoping to have all of her books on audiobooks but after 5 minutes of listening to Debi Mazar, I think (99.99% sure) that I will skip the ones she is narrating. She talks too fast, sounds like she has a mouth full of something and has almost no inflection in her voice. I'm not happy with the abridged versions either. I bought this book but I don't think I will ever listen to it all of the way through, it just isn't enjoyable.
