    To settle a feud, Dominique Beauchamp was resigned to wed in order to heal their injured lands. Offered in marriage by her brother to the lord of Drakewich, she came to take the d'Lucy name... but never counted on losing her heart to the brother of her betrothed - the Black Dragon. Blaec d'Lucy mistrusted her from the beginning, believing her to be part of her brother's endless perfidy, but he was powerless to resist the fiery-haired vixen that rode so proudly into their midst. Their love was sealed... once upon a kiss.

    What did you love best about Once Upon a Kiss?

    The pacing was perfect. The sensual scenes were definitely hot!


    What about Braden Wright’s performance did you like?

    Loved the narrator's performance...a crisp and "audibly deliciously" read...his tone and voice pulled me into the story from the very beginning and kept me there until the end.

    The first book in an original mystery series featuring 28-year-old Veronica Mars, back in action after the events of Veronica Mars: The Movie. With the help of old friends - Logan Echolls, Mac Mackenzie, Wallace Fennel, and even Dick Casablancas - Veronica is ready to take on Neptune's darkest cases with her trademark sass and smarts.

    Story
    If you could sum up Veronica Mars in three words, what would they be?

    Solid...fluid...cool


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Veronica Mars?

    when her Father said they were partners...at that point, she finally got it that they had ALWAYS been partners (whether it was the PI game or in their life, as a whole)


    Which character – as performed by Kristen Bell – was your favorite?

    Veronica herself


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Spring Break--VM Style


    Any additional comments?

    I was a fan of the VM show when it was on TV. The recent movie ever so smoothly picked up where the TV show left off, and this story picked up where the movie ended--all very smooth. I doubly LOVED Kristen Bell narrating this story--just like she did on the show and movie...I could almost imagine seeing the story playing in my mind like I was watching the TV show. The story was solid, well paced, great to listen to and the ending was very satisfactory (with, I hope, more stories to come in the future).

    Where does The Cat Who Tailed a Thief rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book is so lively and witty and keeps your interest just jumping up and down! I'm not sure if I can rate where this book ranks among all the audiobooks I've listened to so far, but it's a #1 brilliant story, in my opinion.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot was again, lively, quirky and I know I had a smile on my face as I was going about my household chores! Even though this was fiction, if you ever lived in a small, rural town, you could probably find interesting "characters" something like the folks portrayed in this book.


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    To me, George Guidall is the SUPREME MASTER of NARRATORS! Enough said...


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

    If my personal schedule would have allowed it, I could have listened to it in all one setting.


    Any additional comments?

    The joy of reading is something I can't do without in this world, and Audible allows me to ridiculously indulge in this guilty pleasure--thanks much, Audible!

    In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is - she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I'm not a young adult reader, but listened to this story to keep on top of what my niece is reading...she raved about it and loved it...some parts of this story slowed down...the middle of this first book almost got a little boring to me, and, I guess, were appropriate to what teens experience when they start developing feelings for someone. I did feel the author drug that out a bit, but, as I said, I am not the target audience. Once I got to three-quarters of this story, it picked up and kept my interest until the end.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Emma Galvin?

    No, I won't be listening to any more stories by this author, but at least I have an idea of how she writes, geared to young adult readers, and that's OK with me--if they like her, and it encourages them to read more, I'm all for it.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I did like the voice of the narrator...her voice lent itself well to this type of story and fictional time period.
