    At 12, Gideon Crew witnessed his father, a world-class mathematician, accused of treason and gunned down. At 24, summoned to his dying mother's bedside, Gideon learned the truth: His father was framed and deliberately slaughtered. With her last breath, she begged her son to avenge him. Now, with a new purpose in his life, Gideon crafts a one-time mission of vengeance, aimed at the perpetrator of his father's destruction. His plan is meticulous, spectacular, and successful.But from the shadows, someone is watching. A very powerful someone, who is impressed by Gideon's special skills.

    I have read and recommended most every book these two have written either together or separately, and I was sorely disappointed with this one. Will not be buying a sequel to this series. Boring, nothing new in style or subject. Sorry guys, but will not be recommending this one.

    At Crewel World - the needlework shop in Excelsior, Minnesota, run by Betsy Devonshire - an array of beautifully hand-dyed yarns are supplied by Hailey Brent, an avid hand-dyer as well as a customer. But shortly after her most recent delivery of yarn, Hailey is found dead in her home, with a gunshot wound to the head. Betsy can't imagine who might have killed Hailey, but she is determined to find out.

    What did you love best about And Then You Dye?

    Traditional well flowing mystery by Monica Ferris. Entertaining and a great listen


    What was one of the most memorable moments of And Then You Dye?

    Hello, if you are going to have private secret conversations, you might want to look around and see what and who is around you. Don't just go to the back of the nursery and think because you are at the back of a business there is nothing on the other side of the fence. Duh.


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

    It only took two sittings, as I had a slow time at work and could listen while I did computer work.


    Any additional comments?

    One of her best!!

    In 1989 Ken Follett astonished the literary world with The Pillars of the Earth, set in 12th-century England. Readers and listeners ever since have hoped for a sequel. At last, here it is. Although the two novels may be listened to in any order, World Without End also takes place in Kingsbridge, two centuries after the townspeople finished building their exquisite Gothic cathedral. The cathedral is again at the center of a web of love and hate, greed and pride, ambition and revenge.

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

    For such a long book easy to follow the story and characters. Love the history without it sounding like a history book.


    Any additional comments?

    Good enough to make me want to finish all 40+ hours.

    When Betsy Devonshire arrived in Excelsior, Minnesota, all she wanted was to visit her sister Margot and get her life in order. She never dreamed her sister would give her a place to stay and a job at her needlecraft shop. In fact, things had never looked so good - until Margot was murdered. In a town this friendly, it's hard to imagine who could have committed such a horrible act, but Betsy has a few ideas. There's an ex-employee who wants to start her own needlework store. And there's the landlord who wanted Margot out. Now Betsy's putting together a list of motives and suspects....

    Would you listen to Crewel World again? Why?

    I already have. Probably will again as I like the characters ,subject matter and not too graphic.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Crewel World?

    When the ladies start to suspect who the killer is (don't want to give it away)


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

    No


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

    I listen at work so am happy to have long stretches to keep up with the story.

    What made the experience of listening to Love in a Nutshell the most enjoyable?

    Lorelei King is awesome as always. New interesting characters with just enough mystery to keep it from being to surgary romance.
