It's Christmas and the well-born guests who have gathered at Applecross for a delicious weekend of relaxation are warmed by roaring fires, mistletoe, and gorgeously wrapped gifts. It's scarcely the setting for misfortune, and no one - not even that clever young aristocrat and budding sleuth Vespasia Cumming-Gould - anticipates the tragedy that is to darken this light-hearted holiday house party. But soon one young woman lies dead, a suicide, and Vespasia must uncover the heartbreaking truth behind the tragedy.

Would you listen to A Christmas Journey again? Why?

A Christmas Journey is right up there with Charles Dickens "A Christmas Carol". It wouldn't be Christmas without listening or reading either one.

What did you like best about this story?

Anne Perry has brought into the book some of my favorite characters from the Thomas & Charlotte Pitt series.

What does Terrence Hardiman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The voices of Terrence Hardiman are exactly like what I 'hear' in my head reading the book.

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

The entire book kept me 'on the edge of my seat.'

Would you listen to Submerged again? Why?

Most definitely will listen to it again. Dani Pettrey is in line with Dee Henderson -- one of my favorite authors. Submerged keeps you on the edge of your seat.

What other book might you compare Submerged to and why?

Dee Henderson, Ann Perry's Thomas & Charlotte Pitt series, and Terry Blackstock's Newpointe 911 series. I also thoroughly enjoy Colleen Coble as well as others in the 'clean' suspense genre

What about Christina Moore’s performance did you like?

She clearly enunciates and her voice is very soothing. not high-pitched.

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

I tried to listen to it in one sitting only I feel asleep and had to backtrack.

A dark shadow of fear has fallen over Newpointe, Louisiana. First one, then another of the town firemen's wives has been murdered, and a third has barely escaped an attempt on her life. Incredible as it seems, a serial killer is stalking this sleepy little southern community. And Mark Branning's wife may be next on the list.
