    Lauren is downtown Chicago's youngest elite realtor. She's also a witch. She must be - the fetching spell for Witches' Chat isn't supposed to make mistakes. So says the woman who coded the spell, at least. The tall, dark, and handsome guy sent to assess her is a witch too (and no, that doesn't end the way you might think). What he finds in Lauren will change lives, mess with a perfectly good career, and require lots of ice cream therapy.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The story was fairly good, but had a hard time listening to it. It was read in very child like voices, that just didn't really bring the characters to life. The male voices were especially hard to handle.

    At seventeen, Avaline Hall has already buried her mother, survived a horrific factory fire, and escaped from an insane asylum. Now she's on her way to Blythewood Academy, the elite boarding school in New York's mist-shrouded Hudson Valley that her mother attended - and was expelled from. Though she's afraid her high society classmates won't accept a factory girl in their midst, Ava is desperate to unravel her family's murky past, discover the identity of the father she's never known, and perhaps finally understand her mother's abrupt suicide.

But then she learns that a troubled young woman went missing just days ago - the same woman Olivia found dead in her car. Someone has gone to great lengths to kill and leave this young woman as a warning. But why? And what role has her new home played in this disturbing murder?

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

    Yes


    Which character – as performed by Carine Montbertrand and Mozhan Marno – was your favorite?

    Probably Eden/ Olivia. I did not enjoy the voices given to the male characters, instead of confident hot guys they sounded like prepubescent nerds.


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

    Loved the whole book! I'm a huge kelley armstrong fan and this is my favorite series by her

    For most people, the story of their lives is just that: the accumulation of time, encounters, and actions into a cohesive whole. But for an unfortunate few, that day-to-day existence is affected - perhaps infected is a better word - by memetic incursion: where fairy tale narratives become reality, often with disastrous results.

    Gameboard of the Gods introduced religious investigator Justin March and Mae Koskinen, the beautiful supersoldier assigned to protect him. Together they have been charged with investigating reports of the supernatural and the return of the gods, both inside the Republic of United North America and out. With this highly classified knowledge comes a shocking revelation: Not only are the gods vying for human control, but the elect - special humans marked by the divine - are turning against one another in bloody fashion.

    What do gorgons, basilisks, and frogs with feathers all have in common? They're all considered mythological by modern science, and some people are working very hard to keep them that way. Alexander Price is a member of a cryptozoological lineage that spans generations, and it's his job to act as a buffer between the human and cryptid worlds - not an easy task when you're dealing with women who have snakes in place of hair, little girls who may actually be cobras, and brilliant, beautiful Australian zookeepers.

    Would you try another book from Mindy Klasky and/or Emma Galvin?

    I might, might read another book by Mindy but not if its narrated by Emma, I have attempted to listen to this book four times and just can't do it. The story might be good but the narration is ruining it! It sounds like a monotone 12 year old narrating. There is no variation at all between characters making it very difficult to follow.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Don't know


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Emma Galvin?

    Any one

    Great book, interesting story. A unique melding of science fiction and paranormal. Can't wait to read more book set in this world


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Clean Sweep?

    I really enjoyed the ending, lath ough I was sad it was done, everything wrapped up wonderfully yet left things open for more books.


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

    The narrator did a good job, my only issue was sometimes her voice was so soothing it almost put me o sleep


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

    Yes

    Katie Chandler had always heard that New York is a weird and wonderful place, but this small-town Texas gal had no idea how weird until she moved there. Everywhere she goes, she sees something worth gawking at and Katie is afraid she's a little too normal to make a splash in the big city. Working for an ogre of a boss doesn't help. Then, seemingly out of the blue, Katie gets a job offer from Magic, Spells, and Illusions, Inc., a company that tricks of the trade to the magic community. For MSI, Katie's ordinariness is an asset.
