The chic Manhattan nightspot Du Vin is not the kind of place Eve Dallas would usually patronize, and it's not the kind of bar where a lot of blood gets spilled. But that's exactly what happens one cold February evening.

Super tough subject matter but I adore the In Death series. It was really hard to listen to in certain places. I found myself having to turn it off and come back again after taking a breather.

I love the cast of characters in this series! I enjoy the narrator as well.
I hope This series continues for years to come.

Ainsley O'Leary is so ready to get married - she's even found the engagement ring her boyfriend has stashed away. What she doesn't anticipate is for Eric to blindside her with a tactless breakup he chronicles in a blog - which (of course) goes viral. Devastated and humiliated, Ainsley turns to her half sister, Kate, who's already struggling after the sudden loss of her new husband.

I thought the narrators did a wonderful job bringing these characters to life.

I have listened to and read the Buchanan series. It is one of my favorites. I will say that Regan is my least favorite character. I think it is all the crying she does.
I love a good HEA with some suspense thrown in!
Julie Garwood is one of my favorites.
I really enjoy this narrator as well

I thoroughly enjoy this series by James Patterson. I especially love it via audiobook. The story, characters and narration are excellent.
I really enjoy the sound effects too. They seem to really put me in the action of the story!
I am definitely looking forward to the next WMC book.

The marriage of Dylan Buchanan and Kate MacKenna is no ordinary occasion. It represents the joining of two family dynasties. The ceremony and reception proceed without a hitch - until a crasher appears claiming to be a MacKenna guest. The disheveled and eccentric professor of medieval history warns that there's "bad blood" between the couple's clans, stemming from an ancient feud that originated in Scotland and involving the Buchanan theft of a coveted MacKenna treasure.

Dennis Mira just had two unpleasant surprises. First he learned that his cousin Edward was secretly meeting with a real estate agent about their late grandfather's magnificent West Village brownstone, despite the promise they both made to keep it in the family. Then, when he went to the house to confront Edward about it, he got a blunt object to the back of the head.

This is a fantastic series! I look forward to each new release. The cast of characters are great and the narrator really brings them all to life.

This was a hard story as it dealt with rape. The women who experienced it along with Eve as a child. I love how Eve has been made whole with her husband Roarke and her friends and job. I love how she fights everyday to make things better. I also like how she takes no crap but is tempered by the people in her life.

These are great cop stories as well as a great love story. This series is well worth your time!

I want my very own Roarke😄
