    Award-winning, best-selling author Neil Gaiman demonstrates why he’s one of the hottest stars in literature today with “The Thing About Cassandra,” a subtle but chilling story of a man who meets an old girlfriend he had never expected to see .International blockbuster bestselling author Diana Gabaldon sends a World War II RAF pilot through a stone circle to the time of her Outlander series in “A Leaf on the Winds of All Hallows.”

    Where does Songs of Love and Death rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    SLD is, as most short story collections are, uneven, but overall entertaining. Neil Gaiman's tale is delightful, as is Peter S Beagle's. A few of the others are simply formulaic romance set in not-this-world, but nothing objectionable.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Neil Gaiman--always a favorite.

    When wealthy, cultured Irene Finney and her four grown-up children arrive at the Manoir Bellechasse in the heat of summer for a memorial for her late husband, the staff springs into action. But as a heat wave gathers strength, old secrets and bitter rivalries begin to surface. And the morning after the ceremony, a body is found. The family now has another member to mourn.

    Would you consider the audio edition of A Rule against Murder to be better than the print version?

    I loved both print and audio. The advantage of audio for me is that I tend to read too quickly to catch every important detail, and audio gives me the opportunity to hear what I sped past on my way to the conclusion. I own both print and audio.


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

    Still Live (Louise Penny's first)--both are excellent.


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

    Yes!

    Jake Sullivan is a licensed private eye with a seriously hardboiled attitude. He also possesses raw magical talent and the ability to make objects in his vicinity light as a feather or as heavy as depleted uranium, all with a magical thought. It's no wonder the G-men turn to Jake when they need someoneto go after a suspected killer who has been knocking off banks in a magic-enhanced crime spree.

    Clinton says: "Not what I thought it was going to be."

    Correia writes with a flair for fun, a good sense of the ridiculous, and an understanding of the way a story should flow.

    Fay--strong, spunky, capable, adventurous, brave.

    With an ailing mother to care for, Lisa Grant takes the first job she can find: research assistant to District Attorney Scott Buchanan. What Lisa expects to be a mind-numbingly boring task turns into anything but when a missing-persons case draws her attention. The details of the case are engrossing: an entire family — father, mother, and two children — disappeared without a trace more than 28 years ago. Except that’s not all: the mother in a photo Lisa finds could be her own twin.

    What disappointed you about Shattered?

    This author needs a good editor. It starts with a decent premise, but devolves into formulaic romance novel stuff. The narrator tried as hard as she could, but the writing was clumsy and heavy-handed.


    What could Karen Robards have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Use a larger, more creative vocabulary, and better interactions between characters.
