    When reserved flight attendant Bianca gets one look at billionaire hotel owner James Cavendish, she loses all of her hard-won composure. For a girl who can easily juggle a tray of champagne flutes at 35,000 feet in three inch heels, she finds herself shockingly weak-kneed from their first encounter. The normally unruffled Bianca can't seem to look away from his electrifying turquoise gaze. They hold a challenge, and a promise, that she finds impossible to resist, and she is a girl who is used to saying no and meaning it.

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

    I haven't read the print version, but I speculate that I loved this story far more because of the narrator, Elizabeth Powers. She gave a maturity and dignity to the story that may not have been there otherwise.


    What other book might you compare In Flight to and why?

    The concept of "hot billionaire meets somewhat naive 20-something" certainly isn't new, but the author adds flourishes of originality that make this unique enough to seem fresh.


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

    I haven't, and regret that she hasn't narrated other books. I'll be on the lookout for more from her.

    In the affluent town of Weslyn, Connecticut, where most people worry about what to be seen in and who to be seen with, Emma Thomas would rather not be seen at all. She’s more concerned with feigning perfection - pulling down her sleeves to conceal the bruises, not wanting anyone to know how far from perfect her life truly is. Without expecting it, she finds love. It challenges her to recognize her own worth - at the risk of revealing the terrible secret she’s desperate to hide.

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

    Absolutely! Besides the fact that the book (and its sequels) is excellent, it was the narration that blew me away. Kate Rudd gave a superior performance, and completely captivated me. I found it very impressive that there were slight, - though notable - nuanced differences in voice quality for two of the male characters, and those voices stayed constant through all three books. I highly recommend the audio version, or, at a minimum, the kindle version to be read in tandem with the audio.

    When Grace Sheridan returns to Los Angeles to become a working actress, it's a second shot at a life-long dream. With some help from her best-friend agent, will that dream become a reality - or at 33, has Grace missed her chance at the big time? And when an unexpected sizzling romance with Jack Hamilton, the entertainment industry's newest "it" boy, threatens to shine an uncomfortable spotlight on her life, how will that affect her career... and his?

    Story

    This is an absolutely delightful book, a nice light read. The narrator didn't do it for me though, and in fact I found it to be so unfulfilling that I stopped listening and began reading. She has no fluctuation in how she narrates individual characters' voices, and it became so frustrating to me that I wasn't always sure who was talking. The male voices were the same as the female voices, and all were just about the same as the voice of the narrator. Maybe it'll work for you, it just didn't for me. I bought this when it was on sale, enticed by the price, without listening to a sample. Learn from my mistake and make sure you listen to the sample, first!
