    "The first installment of the Compass Club"

    I've been rereading Jo Goodman this week, and this is probably the fifth or sixth time I've listened to the Compass Club series. Every time I do, I am surprised at how wonderful each book in the series is written, how much I enjoy the characters, and the amount of sleep I lose for not wanted to turn off the iPod and go to bed.

    This first installment introduces the four young boys who became the four points of the compass, their school - Hambrick Hall - where they first became sworn enemies of the Bishops, their mentor Colonel Blackwood, and, of course, Madame Fortuna. Madame considers herself a sham fortune teller until she meets North and the family gift suddenly makes itself known.

    And so begins a tale of intrigue, love, lust, and greed. Libby has secrets she dare not share, Within these pages you'll find cat burglars, spies, violence, lost innocence, found love, family loyalty. deep friendship, and lusty love scenes - not to mention a few silly wagers, and an inkling of how the Bishops might figure into the rest of the series.

    This book will suck you into a world Jo Goodman has created with brilliant attention to detail, complex characters, and leave you wanting more.

    "Better than the run of the mill Regency !"

    Definately better than the run of the mill Regency Romance! These days it is rare to find a regency romance that still can capture my attention. The market has been flooded over the last year or two, and I like many, have been giving them a wide berth.

    So it was a pleasant surprise to find one that could still hold my interest. This was not the usual storyline and had a bit of mystery which unfolded slowly.In addition the narrator did a great job!

    "wonderful mystery/romance"

    The story gives you just enough to keep you very interested without giving too much away and becoming predictable. The characters are believable and desirable. There is romance, mystery, humor and even tragedy. I found I cared about what happened to these people. I would have liked the narrator to do more with the voices but the story overcame her lack of performance. Overall very enjoyable.

    "Tedious!"

    I found two hours of interesting and thirteen hours of waiting for interesting. The two main characters were not consistent, I kept wondering when I was going to start liking them.
