    The Bailey Flanigan series begins with Bailey leaving Bloomington for the adventure of a lifetime. She has won an audition for the ensemble of a Broadway musical in New York City. She's determined to take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, but is she really ready to leave family and friends for the loneliness of the city? And what of Cody? His disappearance has her worried about their future and praying that their love can survive.

    What would have made Leaving better?

    It was just too simple. I think it was meant for a young adult.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    A mystery.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator was fine -- it just wasn't for me.


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

    Like I said, probably a good story for someone much younger than me.


    Any additional comments?

    I do like Karen Kingsbury -- I have read a lot of her books/series and have enjoyed most of them. This is the first one that I actually didn't finish.

    From the tip of his black Homburg to the crease in his cheviot trousers, Drew Farthering is the epitome of a stylish 1930s English gentleman. His only problem? The body he just discovered. With the help of beautiful and whip-smart Madeline Parker, a guest from America, Drew proposes to use the lessons he’s learned reading his mysteries to solve the crime. Trying hard to remain one step ahead of the killer - and trying harder to impress Madeline - Drew must decide how far to take this dangerous game.

    Would you listen to Rules of Murder again? Why?

    I don't usually listen more than once, but maybe I would in the future.


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

    Yes. It was a long way into the book before I figured it out.


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

    No


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

    I don't know!

    Cathy Cramer is a former lawyer and investigative blogger who writes commentary on local homicides. When she finds a threatening note warning her that she’s about to experience the same kind of judgment and speculation that she dishes out in her blog, Cathy writes it off as mischief…until her brother is caught in the middle of a murder investigation - the victim is his ex-wife. As her brother is tried and convicted in the media, and bloggers have a field day, Cathy wonders if she should have taken the threat more seriously.
