I think the narrator did a good job reading this story. The story was a quick and easy listen. So if you only have a few hrs and want to hear a full story, then give this a go.
I really liked Willow. I found she was very likeable all the way through.
I think the narrator did a good job with the story and the characters. She gave each one a different voice so they were easy to identify.

Absolutely love this book. It is one of my fav Radclyffe books. Lots of emotion and characters that you can't help but fall in love with.

Fantastic Narrator. I love when Abby Craden narrates books. She always does a great job with the characters and really brings the story to life.

When a hurricane blows through town and threatens the future of Olivia Clark's animal shelter, she publicizes her desperate plea for help to the masses. Aid comes from a surprising source: Chloe Homestead, Olivia's ex-girlfriend from 13 years ago and the only girl Olivia has ever loved. Chloe, a self-made millionaire, offers to finance and manage the shelter's repairs and operations - a gesture Olivia is in no position to refuse.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. I would definitely recommend this book, the story is a nice one. I really liked the characters and was pulling for them from the beginning. Plus the story is filled with animals that just make you smile.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Olivia. Because she has the biggest heart and really cares for the animals. She feels things deeply and is just a genuine & nice person.

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

No I haven't. I enjoyed her narration though and would listen to her again.

If you could take any character from A New Leash on Life out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Olivia. Same reasoning as above. She is genuine and has a good heart. She would be a great friend.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this story and look forward to reading/listening to more books by Suzie Carr. I will also happily listen to this story again.

Two women vow to bring a killer to justice. Deputy Andrea Sullivan had hoped to leave the horrors of Los Angeles behind her, but the serial murders of college students in peaceful, picturesque Sedona are her nightmare case to solve. The complexities stretch local resources to the limit, and the FBI joins the case with Agent Cameron Ross in the lead.

Would you consider the audio edition of Devil’s Rock to be better than the print version?

Yes & no. I love to read myself but due to my disability I have to listen to audiobooks sometimes. I personally prefer to read a book and use my imagination. However I really did love this book in audio. In fact it is one of my new favourites. So I can't really say if it's better or not as i will both read the book and listen to it again & again.

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

The first time I read it, yes. However because I have read it more than once I knew what was going to happen. I believe if you haven't heard the story before then yes it will intrigue you.

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

Yes. I have quite a few books read by Abby Crayden and I LOVE her voice. This has to be one of my favourite books that she has performed. She really brought this story to life and I love the voices she gave the two main characters. All the secondary characters had their own voices too so you knew who was speaking. I could probably listen to her read the dictionary and be happy, although I am glad that she has much better options.

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

Yes, the bit where Cameron was really emotional and was telling Andi about her family. And the bit where Andi found out that Cameron had read files about her past.

Any additional comments?

I love this story and am a big fan of Gerri Hills work. I have read all her books and I hope that the rest will be released on audible in the near future. Gerri Hill is a talented writer and this is one of my favourite romance/intrigue stories by her. While I prefer plain romances normally I do enjoy Gerri's intrigue books. Hunters Way will be released soon and that is a must read/listen.
Abby Crayden does an amazing job with this book and really brings the characters to life.
