    In this inspirational audio program, Louise explains how you can use the power of your mind to attract anything you want into your life: more money, a rewarding career, fulfilling relationships, and more fun! Once you put a halt to self-criticism and learn to move beyond your limitations, you'll begin attracting more "good" into your life.

    Overall

    I thought the book in general was very positive and had a had a very positive flow to it. I loved Louis Hay's affirmations and the concept of the way we need to change our thoughts regarding money and ourselves in general.
    The only thing I did not like was I thought there was too much audience interaction. Some is good, but I thought she over did it in that department a bit too much.

    Most girls might think twice before getting engaged to someone like Reyes Farrow - but Charley Davidson is not most girls. She’s a paranormal private eye and grim-reaper-in-training who’s known to be a bit of a hell-raiser, especially after a few shots of caffeine. Her beloved Reyes may be the only begotten son of evil, but he’s dark and sultry and deeply sexy and everything Charley could hope for. Really. But when the FBI file on Reyes’ childhood happens to land into her lap, she can’t help herself: She opens it...and then the real fun begins.

    Where does Sixth Grave on the Edge rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I enjoyed this book but not as well as the previous ones. Don't get me wrong, it was indeed an excellent book but this one seemed a little fragmented, harder to follow and know what is going on.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sixth Grave on the Edge?

    The most memorable would be at the end when we find out Charley is pregnant. You can't help but feel pride for Charley and Reyes.


    Have you listened to any of Lorelei King’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Ms. King's performance was spot on as usual. I don't think anybody else could fill her shoes in this performance or any of the previous ones. You can always tell who is speaking, especially if you have listened to all the books in the series.


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

    Yes and I almost did. I think I finished it off in three listens.


    Any additional comments?

    I sadly would have to agree with a few of the other reviewers, that this book was just not as good as the others. It was just lacking something I really can't put my finger on. I am a little reluctant to buy the seventh book but I will, just because I have so much invested in this series. I can't just walk away now.

    Veronica Mason, lead singer of the rockabilly band The Voodoo Zombies, discovers her vampire bass player staked through the heart. A vision of the murder flashes in Veronica's mind and she wonders if she's going bonkers. Up until now her supernatural skills consisted of a few botched love spells.

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

    This book was alright. I'd say it was definitely worth my time but it did need improvement in some areas. The main character, I'd say she was more ditzy than anything else and the questions. Always questions. She asked the same questions over and over again through out the book. So many questions and second guessing herself that it almost made me want to pull my hair out. Also, some of the situations she put herself in was just plain stupid. Kind off like walking out in front of a moving vehicle and hoping you don't get run over.


    What about Elizabeth Klett’s performance did you like?

    I thought her performance was pretty spot on. She has a very nice voice and played all the characters well.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes. I probably would go see it. Just to see if all the commotion going on in Veronica's mind calmed down.


    Any additional comments?

    I was not that impressed with this book but it was good and anybody who likes a little bit of mystery would probably enjoy this book. It was worth the credit I spent on it.

    If you could sum up Once Haunted, Twice Shy in three words, what would they be?

    Keeps your attention.


    Which character – as performed by Kate Rudd – was your favorite?

    I thought she did an excellent job with all the voices though it seems like those with that new Orleans drawl all sounded the same.


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

    I both laughed and cried while reading this book. The crying part definitely caught me off guard though because the books have been a pretty light read. I guess it was too easy to get emotionally involved in the characters, a sign of a good book if you ask me.


    Any additional comments?

    If you read the first book in the series and enjoyed it you will definitely like this one.

    It pretty much starts where the last one left off, with the axeman ready to make his come back into this world and resume his bloody rampage... leaving it up to Peyton to stop him.

Dorian Robert-Houdin is a living, breathing three-and-half-foot gargoyle - not to mention a master of French cuisine - and he needs Zoe's expertise to decipher a centuries-old text. Zoe, who's trying to put her old life behind her, isn't so sure she wants to reopen her alchemical past... until the dead man on her porch leaves her no choice.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Accidental Alchemist to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version, but I imagine it would be just as good as the audio.


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

    It had a great ending that left me smiling and in a good mood.


    Have you listened to any of Julia Motyka’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was the first time hearing Ms. Motyka's, but i loved her performance. She did a great job with all the voices.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    What moved me the most was the main characters need to help Dorian. Though at times it seemed so drawn out and moved slowly. Dorian was slowly turning to stone again and instead of working on the book, which she should of been doing she was taking long leisurely baths and slowly sipping her tea and taking long walks. Didn't remind me of someone who should of been busy saving Dorian.


    Any additional comments?

    The book was very good just too drawn out.

    Sometimes being the grim reaper really is that. Grim. And since Charley’s last case went so awry, she has taken a couple months off to wallow in the wonders of self-pity. But when a woman shows up on her doorstep convinced someone is trying to kill her, Charley has to force herself to rise above. Or at least get dressed. She quickly realizes something is amiss when everyone the woman knows swears she’s insane.

    Where does Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've listened to a lot of audio books. I have no way to rate the best but I'd say this book rates as one of the best.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the way Charley has evolved. Her snarkiness is about the same and she still has a knack for pissing people off but her heart is expanding and she is learning about forgiveness. She is also learning more about her powers as the grim reaper. Rock on Charley!


    Have you listened to any of Lorelei King’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to her other performances and have never been dissatisfied. She has a great voice that never grates on your nerves and she performs each character well.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes. At the end of the book when her and her father begins to understand each other better and she finally begins to forgive him. Very touching.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a great book. I would recommend it to anybody that enjoys this type of book. But start at the beginning with book one so you can better understand Charley and what she has been through.

    But left a lot to be desired. Pretty much your run of the mill romance book. Woman (Larue) meets man (Callahan) falls head over heels in love. The villain of the book steals him away with a love spell and it is up to Larue to save him.
    The story itself wasn't bad, it was all the other stuff that grated on my nerves. Like everything she said had to be said twice, she was always second guessing herself and she whined constantly.
    The narrator was also horrible. She sounded so flat and uninspired.
    I am sorry that I wasted a credit on this book.

After Katie examines the cougar and leaves him caged overnight, she's shocked to find a big strapping specimen of young, hot man in its place.

    Don't get me wrong. The book had a great plot and kept me interested enough to want to keep listening. I just get tired of the man thing and always blubbering on about why she cannot fall for him and then when she does the blubbering continues, but for another reason now. For this reason alone, the book seemed to take forever to move forward. I always enjoy listening to Meredith Mitchell,, she does a good job with all the voices.

    Alice Clark, a Wyr and schoolteacher, has had two friends murdered in as many days, and she's just found the body of a third. She arrives at the scene only minutes before Gideon Riehl, a wolf Wyr and current detective in the Wyr Division of Violent Crime - and, as Alice oh-so-inconveniently recognizes at first sight, her mate. But the sudden connection Riehl and Alice feel is complicated when the murders are linked to a serial killer who last struck seven years ago, killing seven people in seven days. They have just one night before the killer strikes again. And every sign points to Alice as the next victim.

She never expects that her new client, software mogul Deacon Whitney, would see more in her than just a talented gardener. Deacon has paid top dollar to the crews he’s hired to renovate the desolate Whitney estate - he had to, because the bumps, thumps, and unexplained sightings of ghostly figures in 19th-century dress are driving workers away faster than he can say “Boo.”

It’s going to take time and a fat wallet to restore the fixer-upper to its former glory, but after her recent divorce, Peyton could use the distraction. It’s not long before Peyton discovers she’s moved into the haunted home of a flirtatious paranormal prankster.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Ghouls Rush In to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print edition .. so I have nothing to compare it to.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed Peyton and Ryan's courtship.. so to speak. It was nice to see them become friends and things slowly go from there. But, the whole story was good. I enjoyed hearing about her new home and the plot was excellent. The Axeman. Everything seemed very believable. I also enjoyed the two that came to exorcise the house. The freezing air, the house shaking and moaning. I wonder what will happen when Ryan finds out she is possessed? Guess we will find out in the next book?


    What about Kate Rudd’s performance did you like?

    I thought she did an excellent job with Peyton's voice but I wasn't thrilled with The way Ryan sounded. He was described as extremely handsome and very manly that the voice just did not do him justice.


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

    I laughed in some spots but really it was neither funny or sad.
