Publisher's Summary

Elizabeth Peters has attracted a huge following of listeners with her ability to deliver snappy stories, witty dialogue, and appealing characters. In Naked Once More, Peters creates a heroine you won't soon forget, the flamboyant Jacqueline Kirby, popular author and outspoken ex-librarian.

A lovely, but reclusive, young writer has mysteriously died, leaving the public hungry for a sequel to her enigmatic, best-selling novel. After intense competition, Jacqueline is chosen to write the sequel. But as Jacqueline begins her manuscript, she receives ominous signs that she may be heading for the same fate. Neither chocolate nor scotch can dispel her fears. Soon she is desperately trying to untangle two perilous plots: one in the sequel, and one in her own idiosyncratic life.

Naked Once More is Elizabeth Peters at her best, especially when narrated by her favorite actor, Barbara Rosenblat. Between the two of them, they'll keep your ears ringing with suspense and humor.

    "A real hoot!!"

    This book is absolutely hysterical! Barbara Roseblat is at her best with this narration. If the publishing world is really like this I can see why Jake Kirby resorts to some of her theatrics. The plot is excellent. About the time you think you've gotten the story figured out another shoe falls out of the sky. The ending is crisp and won't leave you wondering. It will leave you wanting more Jake Kirby though! Keep listening.

    "Not Amelia Peabody... but very funny nonetheless!"

    I love Elizabeth Peters. OK, this doesn't reach the intellectual yet campy heights of the Amelia Peabody series, but it's darn funny anyway. Forget who wrote the book, forget that she's much smarter than the characters in this book, and I guarantee you'll love it for what it is.

    "More musings than mysteries"

    Jacqueline Kirby, who is unconvincingly protrayed as charming and seductive, is, at least, quite witty. This particular work is a cut above true romance novels, if that is what you are looking for (I was not), but just barely. It is clear that Peters attempts to legitimize her talents with the aid of a theasurasus as her constant companion. I can't at all fault the storyline, but I can say that there are more musings here than mysteries.

    "My favorite Peters/Michaels book"

    I have read all of the Peters and Barbara Michaels novels and this is my favorite. Witty, fun, and well-paced. If you have any experience in the publishing industry, consider this a must read. I have listened to the version done by Grace Conlin, and this is superior.

    "Liked it."

    Easy listening story. Good characters and a few unexpected twists. Kept me listening to the end and then wishing there was a little more.

    "Narrator + Author = Great Listen"

    Elizabeth Peters writes delightful, funny mystery stories. Naked Once More is solid Peters and quite enjoyable. But what makes it a great listen is the wonderful talent of Barbara Rosenblat. She is one of the top narrators out there, and what a difference she makes!

    The other narration option is not nearly as good as this one. Even if you've listened to the rest of the Kirby series with the other narrator -- by all means switch to Rosenblat for this one! I can't recommend Barbara Rosenblat enough.

    "Unimpressed"

    I have liked this authors books of this type (more modern, adventure with romance), but this one fell short. Also, I don't especially like this reader so a so-so book was made un-enjoyable.
