    After years of trying to become pregnant without success, Rachel Dawson and her husband, Thomas, felt their dreams had finally come true the day they brought home their newly adopted twin babies. Though the lawyer Baron Bell who arranged for the surrogate mother charged a hefty six-figure fee, one glance into the eyes of their precious children told them it was all worth it - until the birth mother reappeared, first demanding more money, then the twins themselves.

    What made the experience of listening to Deadly Deals the most enjoyable?

    The characters and the narrator all together has made a wonderful series. I have listened to the entire series and have enjoyed each one.


    What does Laural Merlington bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Listening to the voices of the characters bring the story alive. The narrator does a wonderful job doing both the female and male voices. Every now and then a new character comes in and will sound very similar to a previous characters voice but all in all she does a wonderful job.

    What did you love best about Speaks the Nightbird?

    The narrator does an unbelievably great job, both gender voices. The story is so well written you can see the characters in your imagination. The story takes you back to the late 1600's when so called witches were burned at the stake. The main character does his own investigation to reveal all kinds of hidden secrets in this small town where all the people are anxious to see a woman burned at the stake. The sad part is I think this story was probably quit close to what it was like during the Salem Witch Hunts. All the innocent women burned to death but this one character has an open mind and can see beyond it all. Great story, excellent narrator.


    Which character – as performed by Edoardo Ballerini – was your favorite?

    Mathew and the Magistrate.


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

    Laughter mixed with some sadness for the innocent victim in the book


    Any additional comments?

    Swan Song is another great book by the same author Robert McCammon. I am looking forward to the next in the series.

    You’ve lost your job as a department store lingerie buyer, your car’s been repossessed, and most of your furniture and small appliances have been sold off to pay last month’s rent. Now the rent is due again. And you live in New Jersey. What do you do? If you’re Stephanie Plum, you become a bounty hunter. But not just a nickel-and-dime bounty hunter; you go after the big money. That means a cop gone bad. And not just any cop. She goes after Joe Morelli, a disgraced former vice cop who is also the man that took her virginity....

    Funny, entertaining, and realistic


    What did you like best about this story?

    Every day I listen during my drive to work laughing out loud. I have been late more than once because I want to finish the chapter. You won't be sorry, Stephanie the main character is great and her life is full of surprises. I have bought the next one in the series and can't wait to get started. The narrator does a great job too.

    On the surface, these seven women are as different as can be - but each has had her share of bad luck, from cheating husbands to sexist colleagues to a legal system that often doesn't do its job. Now, drawn together by tragedy, they're forging a bond that will help them right the wrongs committed against them and discover an inner strength they didn't know they had. The Sisterhood is learning that when bad things happen, you can roll over and play dead...or you can get up fighting...

    Overall

    Once I started this series I am just plowing through them all; the sisterhood. I listen to and from work and find myself in the parking lot getting one more paragraph in. The story is great. The narrator does a wonderful job in my opinion given male voices are very difficult for women. She does great! Once you get to about the 4th or 5th one? hard to figure out the next in the series. I goggled Fern Michaels series and got a list to help me figure out which one was next; since a few of them do not have the sisterhood in the title. Like Hokus Pokus. I really am enjoying them all.
