Amelia Peabody, archaeologist and woman extraordinaire, should have greeted the approaching excavation with transports of joy. Nothing in the world could compare with exploring the muddy, musty corridors of some bat-infested pyramid. And at Dahshoor, to which she was headed, there existed some particularly fine specimens.

Where does Lion in the Valley rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Anything that Barbara Rosenblat has read has been great! I have started following her on Audible instead of authors. However, the Amelia Peabody books have just gotten better and better too.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Lion in the Valley?

Anything with Ramseys in it.

What about Barbara Rosenblat’s performance did you like?

Her voices are amazing. I especially like how she preforms Emerson's clearing of his throat, when he doesn't know what to say.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Laugh at loud at times.

Goldy Schulz is thrilled to be catering a holiday breakfast feast for the staff of the Aspen Meadow Library. But little does she know that on the menu, alongside the Great Expectations Grapefruit, Chuzzlewit Cheese Pie, and Bleak House Bars, is a large helping of murder.

If you could sum up Sweet Revenge in three words, what would they be?

My favorite Goldie reader is BACK!!! Thank you audible for bringing back the real sound of Goldie!!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Sweet Revenge?

Tom's husky voice asking Goldie if she needed glasses, in regards to Sandee.

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

YES!!! SHE'S BACK. I can't remember the reader from the last book that was replaced but she read the Goldie character like a soap opera character. I hated the old reader's mens voices. Tom sounded horrible and I couldn't love Marla the way that I do when Barbara Rosenblat reads her. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for bringing Barbara Rosenblat back!!!!!

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

I would be the same line they used in a newspaper article about Goldie in one of the books.
Something like: "Tough cookie Goldie the Caterer, solves murder in a small Colorado Mountain Town, while being a single mom and cooking gourmet food for the towns elite."

Any additional comments?

I've really grown to love this characters the way the Barbara Rosenblat reads them. Thank you again for bringing back the real Goldie Schultz.

When a Druid has lived for 2,000 years like Atticus, he's bound to run afoul of a few vampires - make that legions of them. Even his former friend and legal counsel turned out to be a bloodsucking backstabber. Now the toothy troublemakers - led by power-mad pain-in-the-neck Theophilus - have become a huge problem requiring a solution. It's time to make a stand.
