    Shannon Bodine is a talented graphic artist whose life revolves around her job at a prestigious New York advertising agency. Her world is turned upside down when she learns the identity of her real father: Thomas Concannon. Respecting her late mother's wish, Shannon travels, however reluctantly, to County Clare. There, her loneliness and shame melt away in the embrace of the family she never knew existed.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Born in Shame to be better than the print version?

    I never read the print version


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love this series and I think this book is my favorite because you get to see the progression of Maggie and Brianna. I loved that most.


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

    I don't know if this is the same narrator as the first two but if so this was alot better, but still not good.


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

    When Maggie and Shannon began to form a relationship. I loved to see the relationship between the female characters grow throughout the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I really liked this book but I think Nora Roberts could have done a better job developing the Murphy character. In this book she made him seem clumsy and ackward but that was the sense in the other books. I will say that all Nora Roberts books typically end the same but the good part is seeing how the character get there.

    What did you love best about The Other Side of Midnight?

    I liked the development of the characters Noelle and Catherine


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

    It was a steady build, not an edge of your seat type of book. I like the steady build


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

    I liked his narrator. He did a good job with giving everyone personality. Didn't like the American accents as much.


    Any additional comments?

    It's a good read and doesn't have the typical, you can guess it ending.

    In winter, Brianna Concannon's bed-and-breakfast is a cold and empty place. And that's fine with Brianna. She enjoys the peace and quiet, even when icy winds howl at her window. This year, though, she's expecting an unusual guest: mystery writer Grayson Thane, from America. And sometimes a fire can be born in ice.

    What did you love best about Born in Ice?

    I loved the story. It was rich in tradition. I love that Nora Roberts shows a different type of character in Brianna.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The narrator used for this series leaves alot to be desired. He speaks way too fast. This book was better than book 1 of the series but still bad.


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

    This book made me cry in a good way.


    Any additional comments?

    This is one of my favorite Nora Roberts series. I wish there were more.
