How come nobody ever sees Miranda Ogilvy, except the blind neighbor who wants her and the hired henchman who wants her dead? Murder, political corruption, quirky small-town neighbors, and Dave the Wonder Dog work together to make this mystery fun, romantic, full of surprises, and warmly satisfying. Joshua Bennington's unforgettable narration brings the amazing characters to vivid life.

Where does Reflections from an Outdoorsman rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It was alright, not great but informative. I could have listened much longer to the tales of hid childhood.

Any additional comments?

It was an interesting book about hunting and how the author got into the sport. There was a lot of information about what gun to buy and how to hunt deer I did not know. Good book for the beginner.

This audiobook is a delightful light-hearted tale about boating. It is the memoir of a lifelong boater, written from the perspective of a person who has not made a living at sea but is just there because he enjoys being on the water. The audiobook has stories about his pets on board and about the people he meets traveling the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) to the Gulf Intracoastal Waterways (GIWW). He traveled extensively for 10 years in a Grand Banks trawler. This journey has been just part of his lifelong boating adventures seeking that elusive boating paradise.

Wedding day arrives for Lieutenant Banks, and the whole gang is enjoying themselves. Jason is the lone detective on duty, and before the night is over, he must leave the celebration. The scene he finds himself at is the opposite of where he just came from. A cold-blooded murder without any apparent motive, and very little in the way of evidence. Just a group of friends who can't understand why one of their own is suddenly gone.

Was it a remarkable stroke of fate, or destiny which brought John Jacobson and his son together? His son was brought up in a household of hate and mistrust. He left home at an early age to try and seek out some sort of happiness in New York City. During this time, his real father, a truck driver, was unaware of his son's existence. What forces were in play to give his son the idea of leaving New York and heading to Florida? This story is an example of human stamina, integrity, and love beyond our understanding.

What does Joshua Bennington bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Joshua Bennington did a magnificent job narrating this book From the different voices to the emotion in the telling of the tale.

What did you love best about Taken?

WOW...the story takes off as Loren search's for Kilix. She travels the world to find him and bring him home.

What did you like best about this story?

The story is the continuation of the first book. It was less about Kilix and more about Loren and her search for Kilix. But what I liked best was the personality of the new character Peter.

Which character – as performed by Joshua Bennington – was your favorite?

Peter, the arch villain. What a character! He steals the show. The author has given him the roll of the bad guy and the narrator has given him life. Peter is cocky with a British accent.

Any additional comments?

This second book is as good as the first, and may be better. It gets a little wild at the end but it certainly keep my attention. I would recommend both books and I will be reading the third book next..

Jason and Vanessa are back with a new case, and this one pushes them to the limit. Clues are being left at the scene of the homicides but they can't figure out the meaning. Frustration mounts, as does the number of victims, but the detectives won't give up. Will they figure it out too late, or are they smarter than the killer gives them credit for.

Would you consider the audio edition of Cruel Deception to be better than the print version?

The audio book was better than the printed book because the author gave the story line but the narrator brought the characters to life. All audio books give the story line more dimension and depth.

What did you like best about this story?

The author kept the killer veiled to the end. This makes the story much more of a mystery for the reader. I liked that!

What does Joshua Bennington bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Joshua Bennington has a captivating voice. He gave each character in the audio book a distinct and interesting voice. That's the kind of reader I enjoy hearing.

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

The murders were a little gross but I guess the author needed that to show what a bad guy the killer was and the killings were in the end useless.

Any additional comments?

I have liked all of John Dalglish's detective Strong books and I particularly liked this new narrator. I hope to hear more books by him!!

Planes crashed, elevators malfunctioned, missiles launched and brought the human race to its knees. Humanity was able to stop the A.I. after a year of tragedy and devastation and has been rebuilding ever since.

Where does Chronicles of Kilix rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The Chronicals of Kilix is like most coming of age stories but in this story the two main characters are a 15 year old boy and a 16 year old girl dealing with the future over through of man kind by artificial intelligence computers.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Chronicles of Kilix?

What I thought was most amusing was when Kilix took the "glider" out for a glide and destroyed it. It kinda reminded me of the first time I borrowed the family's car, only to bring it back with a little damage.

What does Joshua Bennington bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Joshua Bennington did a fabulous job with the voices of Kilix and Loren. He gave them a personality that went beyond the printed word. I enjoyed the book more because the voices and narration were so excellent.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The competition between the boys. The author wants us to believe that that drive will never stop, even in the future.
