    On a rainy Southern night, Jade Sperry endured a young woman's worst nightmare at the hands of three local hell-raisers. Robbed of her youthful ideals and at the center of scandal and tragedy, Jade ran as far and as fast as she could. But she never forgot the sleepy "company town" where every man, woman, and child was dependent on one wealthy family.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Breath of Scandal to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the print version so I am unable to compare it to the audio edition of this book.


    If you’ve listened to books by Sandra Brown before, how does this one compare?

    I just finished another book by this writer and I feel this book had a great deal intrigue, and passion, very lively characters, and an exciting story line... These are the items I look for when I select a book by this writer.


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

    Dick Hill has a way of expressing the different personalities with the changes in his tone of voices. These changes in his voice helps the listener to visualize the different personalities and emotions in the story line. Several audio books I have listened to recently did not provide that same skill.


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

    Yes and no. I wanted the story to continue... but I would have listened to this audio in one sitting if my schedule and life style would have permitted it.


    Any additional comments?

    I look forward to listening to other audio-books by Dick Hill and Sandra Brown. They make a great combination.

    Story
    Would you listen to Slow Heat in Heaven again? Why?

    The reader brought to life so many different characters in this book. The story was well written with a story line that kept me on edge from beginning to end. I looked forward to hearing what would take place in the next chapter and what each character would do next. I really wish this book was in movie form. It is full of thrilling surprises.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The truth behind the many hidden secretes of each character. I enjoyed the revelations as the story unfolded. I enjoyed the great surprise given to the misfortunate characters.
    I appreciated the descriptions used by the writer without becoming too graphic of the more dreadful scenarios.


    Which character – as performed by Dick Hill – was your favorite?

    I loved the true character of Cash Boudreau. The fact that he was very truthful about who he is regardless of the opinion of others. I enjoyed the confidence and boldness of his character. Even with his misfortunes, he didn't loose what it took to be the man he needed to be.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    This book deserves your best attention. The Title speaks the loudest.


    Any additional comments?

    This writer has always kept me coming back for more. This book offered so much more than I expected. I really hope there will be a sequel to this book.

    Bronwynn Prescott Pierson had certainly made a mess of things. She'd left a disloyal groom at the altar, driven to Vermont, and now stood, near-tears, on the steps of a ramshackle Victorian house in her satin wedding gown.

    Would you try another book from Tami Hoag and/or Jen Taylor?

    Tamy is a vert good writer. But I did not see the purpose of the goat in thevstory. I didn't care for Jen Taylor's impersonation of the congressman because her voice made him sound like a drug addict or a beach bum instead of a congressman.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not sure yet


    What didn’t you like about Jen Taylor’s performance?

    I did not like Jen Taylor's performance in this story


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Mismatch?

    I would replace the goat with a dog


    Any additional comments?

    This story was very different from the other books I have listened to by this writter. Not as interesting.

    To most people, Fiona Bristow seems to have an idyllic life — a quaint house on an island off Seattle’s coast, a thriving dog-training school, and a challenging volunteer job performing canine search and rescue. Not to mention her three intensely loyal Labs. But Fiona got to this point by surviving a nightmare.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This audio was time well spent because there was constant suspense throughout the story


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The ending eas somewhat predictable.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The pace of the narration did match the story. But the Voice of the narrator did not match all of the charactors in the story.


    Was The Search worth the listening time?

    Yes.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Pleasure Seekers to be better than the print version?

    The audio version allows the reader to get a clearer picture of the emotional waves in this story first hand. The picture is painted much clearer in the audio than in print.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Bart was my favorite charactor. I loved his patient attitude, unbias outlook and his appreciation for living well. He was a very smart man that arrived at his powerfull status not easily. He new enough about women to appreciate and recognize a woman of quality.


    Which character – as performed by Gabra Zackman – was your favorite?

    Fay was a memorable character: Inteligent, proud, feminen, eligant and cautious.


    If you could rename Pleasure Seekers, what would you call it?

    If I renamed this book I would name it, Courtiers of another kind.


    Any additional comments?

    This book stress how important Trust was to Bart, and how unaware Faye was of her own beauty and how powerful it was. I became aware of how beauty and inteligence can manuever the senses of so many men. Thats a beast in itself to learn.

    There was a lot happening in this novel, so I had to stay tuned in to keep up. Burning bridges is not alway a wise move. The lead character in this novel assumed that her life had progressed forward but her past life caught up with her future.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Because of You to be better than the print version?

    Yes because the audio version vocalizes the emotions and attitudes of the characters. It also paints a clear picture of the environment surrounding events within the story.


    What other book might you compare Because of You to and why?

    I would compare this book to the book titled: Secrets Never Told- which is also written by Rochele Alers.


    Which character – as performed by Kevin R. Free – was your favorite?

    My favorite character in. This book is the adopted son. Even though he was raised in the world of high society, he did not allow his intelligence and moral character to be tainted or deminished.


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

    While visiting his parent's home Jordons ishowed Aziza where she could go to rest privately and not sleep with him. I thought that action spoke volumes about his character


    Any additional comments?

    This book is a must read, And since it is part of a new series, I'm looking forward to the next book. This author is a great writer.
