Starting a new job is never easy. Especially when your nerves are a hot, fluttering mess and anxiety is churning in your stomach. Deep breaths and a hot new wardrobe are all Judi thought it would take to create her mark, but she was quite mistaken.

What did you love best about Pencil Me In?

The story is really cute. Sounds like a interesting day at the office.

What did you like best about this story?

The one thing I like about the story is how Judy's day was at home is almost like a typical day at home.

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

This is the first story I have heard Elizabeth Tebb narrate. She does really good.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I wanted a book to listen to while I crocheted and had only a short amount of time to listen to a book so I picked Pencil me In and I was able to hear the whole book while finishing my crochet project.

What made the experience of listening to This Changes Everything the most enjoyable?

One I am a fan of Denise Grover Swank and have read all her books. To be able to listen to the audible version as well makes it even better. Just to have the story read to you after you have read it really nice. As I am crocheting and it is a rainy day this book fit the mood I was in. Nice and relaxing that's for sure.

Which scene was your favorite?

Two friends being there for each other when they really needed someone.

What happens when you take one very powerful wand, crack open an ancient spell book, and mix thoroughly with a pair of inexperienced witches? For Kelly and Randy it's a spell gone wild. With no idea what sort of magical mayhem they've created, they have to choose between waiting for the Witches Union to hunt them down or take their chances with a life on the run. But there is another choice, to figure out the spell and try to undo it before it's too late.

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

Yes I would. Melanie James is a great author and though I read her books hearing the audible afterwards puts a whole new spin on the books. With the audible version of Mission Impawsible it brings all the characters and the book to life.

Who was your favorite character and why?

All of them. What is not to love.

What about Hollie Jackson’s performance did you like?

Hollie Jackson's voice is wonderful. She does all the characters voices so well. She makes me laugh when she talks as a certain characters. She really makes the books come to life.

Would you consider the audio edition of Whisper Cape, Book 1 to be better than the print version?

I like them both but to hear it done in audio makes the story very interesting. I think the narrator Shelley Baldiga did a wonderful job. The accents she did and how she put empathist on things. Of course Susan Griscom did a wonderful job writting the story.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Whisper Cape, Book 1?

The love scene between Addie and Cael.

Which character – as performed by Shelley Baldiga – was your favorite?

She did a great job with Addie and Cael

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I wanted to but wasn't able to. I found it great to listen to at night cause Shelley's voice was very relaxing.

Any additional comments?

Can't wait to hear more of Shelley's narration.
