    "Ruby"

    The book is good, but the narrator is pretty bad. Not enough inflection in her tone and you can hear her swallowing saliva - it's disgusting! I want to hear the next book in the series, but since it is the same narrator - I think I will read it instead.

    "Unfinished"
    Would you try another book from Lauraine Snelling and/or Alexandra O'Karma?

    I usually like Lauraine Snelling's stories but this one did not keep me waiting for more.
    Alexandra O'Karma was very low keyed, melancholy, total lack of excitement in her voice. and spoke extremely slow so that I had to increase the speed on my kindle.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Lauraine Snelling? Why or why not?

    Yes I already bought several books and am hoping the rest may be more exciting.

    Story
    "One of my favorite books of all time!"
    Where does Ruby rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Ruby, and her sister Opal travel travel at the wish of their father to claim their inheritance. When they arrive, the "inheritance' is a brothel. This book is how Ruby and Opal transform this brothel into a hotel, and transform the town of Little Missouri (not Little Missery) into a decent place to live.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ruby?

    When Ruby figures out (or was told) what a brothel was!


    What about Alexandra O'Karma’s performance did you like?

    Great voices, makes you feel like you are really there.


    Who was the most memorable character of Ruby and why?

    She stands up for what she believes is right, something we don't often see today!


    Any additional comments?

    Love the book, comes in a series, Pearl is really good also

    "Great Listen"

    I really enjoyed this book. The narrator has a unique voice, but I liked it. Listen to the sample before buying.
