What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I love that this is the beginning of a friendship that could be a great love story. The ending defiantly left me wanting more.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Yes, I think I would enjoy this as a movie, as long as the special effects are good. It would be fun to visually see all the action and different side characters.

What did you like best about The Chocolate Labradoodle Caper? What did you like least?

I liked the characters and their team work. They are very likable and I am tempted to read the previous books just to see more of them. Maybe it’s because I haven’t read the first two books but I was never really interested in what was happening. The story was not boring I just didn’t care. Though I don’t think it was a waste of time because it was a quick listen.

Would you listen to Completely Alone again? Why?

When Completely Hers gets an audio version I’ll probably be relisting to Completely Alone.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I like Finn’s personality, being in his head was great. He has a reasonable way of thinking and I like the way he curses sometimes.

Un2dead (call it un-undead) is a humorous adult sci-fi/horror/fantasy that involves chorizo and egg tacos, a vintage El Camino, a guy that used to be a vampire that has lost his fangs, a green-eyed lady, a granny that hunts wolves and a few other misfits. Yep, it's a love story.

It was a simple offer. I invited Isla to rent a room in my 5000-square-foot home. Plenty of rooms and plenty of space. But the second she moved in, I knew I was in trouble. I could handle wanting her when there was distance between us, but once we started to play house, all my pent up desire started knocking down walls.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes, I appreciate that the couple doesn’t take the whole book to get together. I haven’t read the previous books but I'm sure their story has been building up. For me I thought there was just enough story before and after they started dating.

What did you like best about this story?

Even though the stuff with the baby is unrealistic I’m ok with it because I read books and watch movies to get away from stress so I enjoy stories where the baby is a little angel. And the length of the story was perfect.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked how fast the story went, never felt like the story lolled. I think some people would say it goes to fast but I appreciated the no nonsense story telling.

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

This is an obvious answer for me but the stuff with Alexandra and her father was very emotional. This part feels a little out of place but it really makes me sympathize for the main character. I liked the bit of real life in-between all the sci-fi.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes, the scenes with the ghost were a bit scary and I was concerned for the characters. I think the ghost’s appearances where a bit unnecessary later in the story. The characters already knew what to do but the ghost continued to appear. I felt the ghost was overly creepy, she was able to speak to people so why all the eerie theatrics, it all kept me feeling uneasy in a good and bad way.

Christmas lights twinkle throughout the cozy coastal town of Rocky Point, New Hampshire, and Prescott's Antiques auction venue has been transformed into a winter wonderland for Josie Prescott's annual holiday party. Josie is especially excited this year - Ian Bennington, a recently discovered distant relative, will be joining the fun. Both Ian and Josie are, it seems, descended from Arabella Churchill, a 17th-century royal mistress. The party is a success and Ian is a hit. It gives Josie an unexpected thrill to have family - and unexpected dread when he vanishes.

Josie is my favorite because I was never unhappy with any decision she made. Even when she’s being tricked, I think I would have done the same as her.
