    Each chapter of Lessons from Madame Chic reveals a valuable secret Jennifer learned in Paris - tips you can incorporate into your own life, no matter where you live or the size of your budget. Embracing the classically French aesthetic of quality over quantity, aspiring Parisiennes will learn to master the art of eating (deprive yourself not), dressing (the 10-item wardrobe), grooming (le no-makeup look), and living à la française.

    Would you try another book from Jennifer L. Scott and/or Amy Rubinate?

    No !


    What didn’t you like about Amy Rubinate’s performance?

    Her tone of voice was condescending and preachy.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Irritation. Really - you didn't know 90% of these lessons before Paris? Makes me wonder if the author EVER looked outside herself - are maybe she was a "late bloomer" and hasn't left "being the center of the Universe" yet....

    After being ignominiously shipped out of England following their participation in the Janus affair, Braun and Books are ready to prove their worth as agents. But what starts as a simple mission in the States - intended to keep them out of trouble - suddenly turns into a scandalous and convoluted case that has connections reaching as far as Her Majesty the Queen.

    For nearly 2,000 years, only one Druid has walked the Earth - Atticus O’Sullivan, the Iron Druid, whose sharp wit and sharp sword have kept him alive as he’s been pursued by a pantheon of hostile deities. Now he’s got company. Atticus’ apprentice, Granuaile, is at last a full Druid herself. What’s more, Atticus has defrosted an archdruid long ago frozen in time, a father figure (of sorts) who now goes by the modern equivalent of his old Irish name: Owen Kennedy. And Owen has some catching up to do.

    What made the experience of listening to Shattered the most enjoyable?

    First - let me say - I love these books. Loved meeting Kevin Hearne at a book signing in Houston - and in fact - all my future dogs will be named from this series (but not Oberon for there can be only ONE Oberon).

    I found while listening to this book, I missed Atticus. I got a little tired of Owen. I didn't mind Granuaile's point of view and enjoyed her story - even though it was very disconnected from Atticus. I can hardly wait until Arla can talk more !!

    I am hoping the next one will be more of Atticus and Granuaile... maybe a few more apprentices? And even I am surprised I miss The Morrigan so much !!!

    Also hoping Oberon's Book will be a great Novella to tide us over !!


    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    He simply is Atticus and IS Oberon - he finds the perfect balance between Astro and Scooby Do with the Soul of Lassie...


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

    Always the first book I listen to when a new one comes out !!

    Book Two in the madcap time-travel series based at the St Mary's Institute of Historical Research that seems to be everyone's cup of tea. In the second book in the Chronicles of St Mary's series, Max and the team visit Victorian London in search of Jack the Ripper, witness the murder of Archbishop Thomas A Becket in Canterbury Cathedral, and discover that dodos make a grockling noise when eating cucumber sandwiches.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I loved the twist on time travel and the eccentricities of St. Mary's. But probably the most remarkable is that the heroine is not hour glass shaped and has to work at being fit - as most of us do. She gets messy, panicked, makes mistakes and feels occasionally hopeless as we all do. But -- she has the chance to fix it. Give this series a listen to - or two... very entertaining as well as addicting!

    It begins with a dead body at the far end of Baker Street tube station, all that remains of American exchange student James Gallagher - and the victim's wealthy, politically powerful family is understandably eager to get to the bottom of the gruesome murder. The trouble is, the bottom - if it exists at all - is deeper and more unnatural than anyone suspects...except, that is, for London constable and sorcerer's apprentice Peter Grant.

    Agent Franks of the U.S. Monster Control Bureau is a man of many parts - parts from other people, that is. Franks is nearly seven feet tall and all muscle. He's nearly indestructible. Plus he’s animated by a powerful alchemical substance and inhabited by a super-intelligent spirit more ancient than humanity itself. Good thing he’s on our side. More or less.

    If you like Larry Correia's other Monster Hunter books - don't let the absence of Pitt put you off. It is just as interesting and full of character. Give it a try!


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

    The cadence of the reader is so "Tough Guy" but not so exaggerated as to make it silly...

    Body and soul. The song. That's what London constable and sorcerer's apprentice Peter Grant first notices when he examines the corpse of Cyrus Wilkins, part-time jazz drummer and full-time accountant, who dropped dead of a heart attack while playing a gig at Soho's 606 Club. The notes of the old jazz standard are rising from the body - a sure sign that something about the man's death was not at all natural but instead supernatural.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Moon Over Soho to be better than the print version?

    Well - I haven't read the hard copy but I do love that Jazz is used throughout the book - it adds so much to the performance and the "Soul" of the story.


    What about Kobna Holdbrook-Smith’s performance did you like?

    The accents were spot on - love everything about the performance. If they changed readers - I may not listen.


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

    I loved the "coming to consciousness" to the bigger and infinite world of Magic. I am also kinda geeky in that I loved the basis of the Magic in this book is based on Newton.

More interested in dismantling clocks and climbing trees than proper etiquette at tea - and god forbid anyone see her atrocious curtsy - Mrs. Temminnick is desperate her daughter become a proper lady. She enrolls Sophronia in Mademoiselle Geraldine's Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality.

    But little do Sophronia or her mother know that this is a school where ingenious young girls learn to finish all right - but it's a different kind of finishing.

    Rolicking Good Story ! Love the connections between this and the Parasol Protectorate series - while in the same universe - did not over-rely on already told stories.

    Finishing School for Spies.


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

    I would have preferred Emily Gray but Moira did a very fine job.

    Gail Carriger’s best-selling Parasol Protectorate series reimagines Victorian England with vampires, werewolves, and a dash of steampunk. Blameless is the third in the series starring the parasol-wielding Lady Alexia Maccon, formerly Alexia Tarabotti. After news spreads of her delicate condition—a surprise to everyone since she’s married to a werewolf—Alexia is desperate to escape the London gossip. So she heads to Italy for a change of scenery.
