Nicole Fitzhenry-Dawes feels like she's the only failure amid a family of high achievers. Her last serious boyfriend turned out to be married and her career as a criminal defense attorney is in tatters. When her uncle passes away and leaves her his maple syrup farm in Michigan, she thinks it might be time for a career change - hopefully one that allows her to stay as far away from murderers and liars as possible. For half a day at least.

I enjoyed this book and the characters were very interesting and believable . I think the ended needed clearing up a bit as it was vague concerning one character. other then that I am looking forward to the next book in this series . the Narrator , Andera Emmes was a a strong reason this book was so good. as always her ability to speak a story so clearly ,you can almost feel the characters before you.. this book is well worth the cost and time to listen .if you do , you will be like me waiting for book 2 .

upon was not a good story. I didn't enjoy it nor do I understand what the plot was. it was like coming into a movie half way through and never able to catch the plots the Narrator on the other hand was exceptional. Andrea Emmes was so natutal . I would have thought that the Asian dialect she spoke in this presentation was her second language. Andrea was the saving grace in this book.

And fast.  Enter Becks, soccer phenom, all-around-hottie, and Sally's best friend practically since birth. When Sally asks Becks to be her F.B.F.

I just finished Adorkable . This was an amazing story . I truly enjoyed this book. The best part of this book was the narrator Andrea Emmes . Andrea is always able to use her voice to take a story and turn it into an experience. When you listen , you get drawn into the story. And when you have a great story like Adorkable , and an extremely talented Narrator like Andrea Emmes , you can't loose. I highly recomend Adorkable.

Looking back with wiser eyes now, my family and I concluded that the events leading up to my transformation started during the summer I turned nine. But the day we realized there was a problem - and there was no turning back - was a week before I started my senior year at Junction City High. That was the day the fangs and claws appeared, and the monster inside me emerged. When mutilated corpses appeared near a pile of brush down by Caney Creek, everything changed.

If you like scary books and surprises this is the book for you. It is full of interesting characters and has a great plot. I am very impressed by the Narrator Andrea Emmes. As always she shines with her awesome ability to take on multi characters and give each their own voice and personality . I highly recommend this book and this Narrator .

One for the Barron was a great story , I only wish it was longer . It had a great story line that keep me very interested. The Narrator Andrea Emmes was excellent. I have listened to many of her books and have never been disappointing. When you have a great story and a Talented Narrator you know you are going to have a very enjoyable experience. Looking forward to more from the Author and Narrator in the near future.

Where does Order of Saint Michael rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I feel it is excellent. The story line and characters are both believable and engaging .there is a great mix of interaction from many characters that cause the listener to become completely immersed in the story.

What did you like best about this story?

The concept of good vs. evil in a new and exciting way. With a basic principal it is hard to generate a new and different approach. I feel the Author here did a fantastic job , and I look forward to the next book in this series .

Which character – as performed by Andrea Emmes – was your favorite?

It would be hard to separate the sisters as they are both exciting in there own separate ways. I truly enjoyed the way the reader was able to not only change her voice to show that Adalia and Jamari were different people but she was ables to show each with a rich personality .

If you could take any character from Order of Saint Michael out to dinner, who would it be and why?

This is very difficult as it would obviously be the girls but I would not want to be with just one. I would love to just sit there and let them talk about the best way to do battle.

Any additional comments?

I love Audible books as they go far beyond the written page. If the reader is good , and this one is excellent, you get so evolved with the story the fictional characters become real to you.

Plagued by nightmares and panic attacks, seventeen-year-old Jax Mitchell wants nothing more than a life of seclusion with only her twin brother for company. So when he's kidnapped by Earth's reclusive alien settlers, the E'rikon, she'll do anything to get him back--even form an alliance with a teenage E'rikon boy left behind by the same ship that took her brother. Jax agrees to act as a guide, and in return, the alien agrees to sneak her past the human-proof barrier surrounding the E'rikon city. Too bad it's not that simple. Jax soon finds that she's drawn to the alien boy with bright green hair and jewel-like scales on his back--and he's equally affected by her, the courageous redhead with haunted eyes. But she doesn't know the alien's true motives, and he has no idea that she is much more than she seems. With the aliens and the humans at odds, the connection forming between the two teens has consequences. What started off as a rescue mission sets in motion a chain of events that threatens not only the remaining humans and the growing alien society, but Earth itself.

What did you like about this audiobook?

I have listened to many audio books with many readers. But the reader of this book is excellent. Her choice of voices and accents made it seem as if I were sitting inside the story. I will surely purchase more books with this reader.

How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

I have always enjoyed Sci. Fci. Book , this one was very good.

Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

There are many surprises and thrills in this story that keeps a reader interested.

What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

Nothing at all. The Narrator was very professional , articulate and had a very pleasant speaking voice.

Do you have any additional comments?

I always prefer a female narrator as a male trying to sound like a female or child doesn't really make it for me.
