Just as Jane Jameson’s unlife seems to be stabilizing, fate sinks its fangs firmly into her butt. Despite her near-phobia of wedding planning, her no-frills nighttime nuptials to her sexy boyfriend, Gabriel, are coming along smoothly. That is, until she turns a fatally wounded teenage acquaintance, and the Council pronounces her responsible for the newborn vamp until he can control his thirst.

Ms Harper always writes a great and funny story. I laugh out loud at her clever riposts. I have never "heard" a better writer. I even have listened to her books through a second time as i have enjoyed them so much. Amanda Ronconi is the voice of her books and she does it beautifully. I look forward to her next and then the next. I am a fan, thank you both for you hard work and enjoyable stories and narrative.

Miranda Puckett has failed at every job she’s ever had. Her mother just wants her to come home, join the family law firm, and settle down with Jason, the perfect lawyer boyfriend. But when Jason turns out to be a lying cheater, Miranda seizes on a job that gets her out of town: long-distance vampire transportation. Her first assignment is to drive vampire Collin Sutherland from Washington to sleepy Half Moon Hollow without incident—no small feat for a woman whom trouble seems to follow like a faithful hound dog!

I laughed as I do to all of Molly Harpers books. Enjoyable short novel. Worth the read. I was worried after reading some of the other reviews, but I needn't have worried. Hope you enjoy it too.

Maybe it was the Shenanigans gift certificate that put her over the edge. When children's librarian and self-professed nice girl Jane Jameson is fired by her beastly boss and handed $25 in potato skins instead of a severance check, she goes on a bender that's sure to become Half Moon Hollow legend. On her way home, she's mistaken for a deer, shot, and left for dead.

This one is indescribable. I was listening with my headphones on and kept laughing out loud making my friends and family wonder about my sanity. The next ones in the series are only funnier. Take a spasticly wise cracking woman with a penchant for getting into trouble and make her a Vampire. It only gets her into more trouble. And she always has something to say even when she should keep her mouth shut. I love this book!

There are only a few people who can save the galaxy. Among them are Sassinak, Lunzie, Fordeliton, Dupaynil, and Aygar. Together, they must fight hard to avert disaster. This gripping tale is part of the Planet Pirates series by Anne McCaffrey, Elizabeth Moon, and Jody Lynn Nye. It is narrated by stage and television star Constance Towers.

This was a good continuation for the Dinosaur planet survivors. If you have not read the series, this book will confuse the heck out of you. This story does not stand alone. It is like a chapter of a continuing story. And this would be chapter 6 or 7. If however, you have read all the previous books, (which audible does not have) you will like the story. There is no description of the main characters in this installment. The total story (all the chapters, is quiet well written. It is only hard to follow if you do not have all the books or the proper order for them.
Read it yourself if you can. The performer is rather bland and does not contribute much to the story.

Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

This book took me a little while to get into, but when I did, I was hooked. I am an eclectic reader, but avoid romance and was pleased to find this one did not fall into the thinly disguised romance that a lot of this type of fiction has generated. I think the characters could be fleshed out a little more, hopefully this will be so with upcoming books. Plot was a little thin in spots but still an enjoyable read. The performer does not do accents well, but I did not really mind. His portrayal of a dog was humorous to me. I wish you a pleasant few hours listen.

In Catalyst, award-winning authors Anne McCaffrey and Elizabeth Ann Scarborough introduced listeners to the beguiling Barque Cats: spacefaring felines who serve aboard starships as full-fledged members of the crew. Highly evolved, the cats share an almost telepathic bond with their minders, or Cat Persons — until, suddenly, there is no “almost” about it, and a particular Barque Cat, Chester, learns to ex- change thoughts with his human friend, Jubal. Other cats soon gain the same ability.

I liked reading the book, I bought the audible because I had lost the book on the plane with out finishing it. I really enjoyed reading it. However, the performance ruins it. The reader acts as though she is reading to a 3 year old (a very slow and addle witted 3 yr old) and really talks down to the reader. Even my kids didn't like her. She uses baby voices for all the characters and is really annoying. The reader ruins this book in my opinion and I will never buy another book with this performer.
