Winifred Page and her corgi, Watson, move to Estes Park to hit the Reset button on life. Fred is about to open her dream bookshop, and the only challenges she anticipates are adjusting to small-town life, tourists, and living close to her lovable mother, Phyllis, and hippie stepfather, Barry. When Fred steps into her soon-to-be-bookshop for the first time, she expects dust bunnies and spiders...not the dead body in the upstairs kitchen.

This is different from my usual reads and I had fun listening to it. I'm all for cute and entertaining, and this certainly fit the bill. The murder mystery was a little bizarre. Why would the killer wait till now to do what they did? They had all those years to kill, and then decided to do it where the murder would be discovered. I liked the characters though. They were well done and, aside from Fred (and others) focusing on her height (5'10" isn't that weird folks), I thought they were realistic.

I am a cat lover myself and can say dogs are cute (small ones) from a distance but I would never want one in my home OR place of business, especially a place that sells food. That didn't strike me as realistic but I just went with it. Fred as a amateur sleuth worked for me, and I did enjoy hearing her commentary with Watson about finding clues and his obsession with treats.

As for the narration, it was good. I don't listen to a lot of female narrators and was worried about that, but Angie Hickman has a good voice and I thought it was very well suited to this story. The audio could have benefited from a male narrator to handle the step-father and cute cop, but Angie handled the male voices well. I would (and am) listen to Angie Hickman again.

I give the story 3 stars and the narration 3.75.

I enjoyed this more than book 1, which isn't to say I didn't like book 1. I did. But book 2 was better. 😊 The murder made more sense, and I enjoyed seeing Fred investigating. Plus her run ins with the rude and mean female police offer from the bottom of the roster were anger inducing but I enjoyed them because one of these days, Fred will have her revenge. 😈😈😈

The narration once again was great and I no longer feel the need for a male narrator for the male characters.

I do not know Fred's romantic life will lead her, but I am enjoying the ride. Now if only these people will stop killing each other there might be locals to attend the wedding, lol. 😁

After surviving a horrific chemical attack that turned him into a metahuman, Captain Jamie Callahan got a second lease on life. For three years he’s been working for the Metahuman Defense Force and leading Alpha Team - all against the wishes of his family. The job requires his full dedication, so it’s no surprise Jamie doesn’t have time for a relationship. An enticing one-night stand with a gorgeous stranger shows Jamie what he’s been missing. When a mission to take down a terrorist cell brings that same stranger - Kyle Brannigan - back into his world, Jamie’s life gets complicated.

To start I need to say that the sci-fi genre isn't really my thing, and while technically I don't think this wouldn't fit the parameters of science fiction, it does snuggle up to it. ;) Now, having said that, I really, really, really enjoyed this!

FYI, there was A LOT of sex which I was ready to fast forward because OMG, these guys are like bunnies; I was totally over the looooooong sex scenes, but the relationship between Kyle and Jamie was great! Insta-love for sure (which, ugh and why??) and their instant trust and bond was far fetched for me, but overall I dug their relationship.

What really sold me on this story was the level of detail and just information I was given showing me this new world. If you've read the THIRDS Series by Charlie Cochet, this is so very much of that same ilk. I couldn't get enough of these guys or the team!

The narration was so super stellar! So many accents in rapid succession is amazing! I am blown away by Greg Boudreaux's talent and can't wait to listen to the next audio productions for this series. The narration deserves 5 stars because it was just brilliant and pulled these characters together for me. There were so freakin' many voices!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now, a little bit of plot synopsis. :D Jamie is a Metahuman which you could call a side effect to a chemical attack. Those who survive develop fantastical abilities such as telepathy, super strength, telekinesis, and so much more. But it's rare for a Metahuman to result from the attack and since most people end up dying, scientists have been trying to come up with a vaccine. Enter those who wish to stop a vaccine from being developed as well as those who wish to use the science for their own nefarious purposes. Jamie's team from all appearances is the TOP and they are sent in to help rescue scientists believed to be in danger due to their work.

Kyle and his brother Alexi are new to the team and Kyle is the sniper (I can't remember what role Alexi plays beyond team member). What makes things interesting is Kyle and Jamie met at a bar one night and had an amazing round of sex, something they both needed and despite being strangers felt something immediately for the other. I rolled my eyes for this part, but didn't let it deter me. When the two men discover that they are going to be working on the same team, Jamie puts a stop to any future possibilities of them getting together. Not only are they team mates would could make things weird, but Jamie is Kyle's superior, and that's a BIG grey area. But, when things during a mission go bad (big bad), Jamie can't help but think he made the wrong choice, because death is never far from their lives and he thinks he should be able to enjoy time with Kyle while he can.

Hurray! The two decide to become a thing, and with the help of their team mates, are able to hide their relationship from the Brass. But still, things are not going well in the world and the team is called in once again to take out the enemy. OMG, the situation was tense because I didn't know what was going to happen to Kyle. (view spoiler)

I give this 4.25 stars and the narration 5.

Good job! Can't wait for book 2. :)

This is a very sweet and romantic story. Ronan is extremely depressed after the death of his mother, and he travels to Ireland - his mom's homeland - and he spends time with his mother's family and friends. This is a short story but it didn't feel that way. Ronan's love of his mother, his grief and anger over he death, his decision to go to Ireland, meeting the family and then Fergal - the spacing of the storyline was perfect. It takes an amazing talent to pack a lot into a short page count, and not to make it feel rushed to too full.

John Steinkamps narration was perfect for these characters; his range of accents really worked for this and I loved the inflections in his voice; it felt very natural, just as if he was having a conversation. Sometimes when I listen to an audiobook, the narration comes across as very flat and frankly dull - without life - but John's voice just seems to naturally have this flow to it and it's like he doesn't even have to try. I definitely look forward to more books narrated by John, and J.C. Long.

This is my first book by J.C. and if Hearts in Ireland is an example of JC's talent, I am going to be a big fan.

To give a (very) brief summary of the story, Ronan is basically looking to find himself. He's been lost since his mother became ill (I think even before that). He put off going to grad school (he was going to be a teacher), and he is stuck being a bartender (which he hates) and when his mother dies, he shuts down; doesn't go to work, barely eats, doesn't shower or take care of himself. It was very emotional and I felt so sorry for Ronan. But when he makes it Ireland and spends time with his mother's family, and when he meets Fergal, Ronan starts to wake up and decides it's time to figure out what to do with his life. The expected fight between Fergal and Ronan is tough to see, but I never questioned it. Ronan wasn't sure what he was doing - was he going back to America, was he going to stay in Ireland, was he going back to college, was his relationship with Fergal simply a result of Ronan's grief over his mother. So many things in Ronan's life were uncertain. I just loved seeing Ronan discover himself and finally figure out what he wanted to do. It was just a very lovely story and I would love to read more about these characters again.

4.5 stars for the story; 5 for the narration.

This will be my second book by Matt Burlingame, and the two couldn't be more different from each other, lol. My first book by him was the suspense/thriller BooFF, which some might classify as horror (I do not), and then my second is this totally cute and sweet short story romance featuring Martin and Alec, two guys who fall in love in a week. I know, I know. Insta-love, pft. But LISTEN!!! This was cute!!! So, so cute!

Go with me here. I haven't gone off on as far a tangent as you might think. Have you ever seen the movie The Holiday with Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet? Well, I have, and for those who haven't you can see the movie preview online. Diaz's characters works in Hollywood and in her head she constantly hears a narrator narrating her life, just like a movie narrator would. It's funny, really. Anyway, Catch A Falling Star's audio narration reminded me of that "movie" narration.

I don't know if that will be the case for everyone, and it wasn't for the whole book, exactly, mostly the beginning. And it totally worked for me!! The narrators voice isn't one you would think of for romance, but I just LOVED IT!! I thought his voice just worked so well for this story, the characters and the writing.

Now I ask you - was that tangent really far out into left field or what?

As for the story itself I just thought it was adorable. Martin has been a quiet, reserved guy, who some might call boring. But he's nice and deserves a shot. Alec is a performer who - based on what we learn towards the end - had led a somewhat quiet life as well. He didn't date and while he had friends and was nice towards his fans, he too kept to himself like Martin. When these two meet, instant sparks and with the help of Martins' brother Daniel, Martin is spruced up to not look like such a fuddy duddy. But Alec didn't need Martin to be spruced up. Oh no. Alec already liked Martin for himself and after some comedic (albeit cringe worthy) moments, these guys get their HEA. [Martin is a pushover and there are some not so great things that happen in the week these guys know each other, but in the end Martin gets his spine straight and uses it but good! (hide spoiler)]

I do recommend this and give it 3.75 stars, rounded up to 4. Narration is also a 4. :) Good job everyone!

He thought he’d found the possibility of it once, experiencing a connection during secret encounters so intense, that years later, it still fuels his fantasies. Content in every other aspect of his life, but tired of empty hook-ups and mediocre attraction, Nolan’s starting to think that maybe he’s just not meant to find "the one".

Would you be willing to try another book from Kate Hastings and Amelia Oliver ? Why or why not?

I would because I don't think this first foray was a fair shot at their writing.

Would you be willing to try another one of JJ Jenness’s performances?

First, I've not read the series this novella is part of, and I don't know if you need to since the story is really just about the MCs Nolan and Rupert, although the other series characters do show up (duh! lol).

Not only is this my first book by this author, but this is also my first book narrated by JJ Jenness. Which makes this novella a little hard to judge because overall this book was just okay for me. I decided to request a copy because I read so many great reviews about the series in general, and Almost Easy itself. I loved the excitement of other reviewers comments, but alas I can't say I felt the same. I feel the narration is what held me back from completely enjoying this story because the narrator didn't change his voice between the two MCs - they sounded exactly that same. I couldn't believe it. If ever a book could have benefited from dual narration, this would have been it. JJ didn't have a bad voice, and he did express emotion, etc, when the situation called for it. But I wanted the characters to be their own person, and unfortunately the narration didn't give me that. What I can say is he did bring extra sound effects to the story that I liked, such as when a character was talking on a cell phone, the tone (special techno mastery) came across in just the right way. I liked that it sounded completely different from a normal speaking voice. Well done with that!

As for the story itself, as I said earlier - it was okay for me. Had I been able to read this I think I could have bumped my rating up because then I could have brought out the characters voice that I wanted. It was hard to follow the storyline because I kept getting distracted by the voice speaking. But strictly speaking I think the story is good, if a little dramatic at the end. The whole thing with deliberate sabotage and the guy (Will?) who is really out to get Nolan and Rupert because they are gay and he doesn't like gay people (thinks they are deviants), that was a little much for me. Although it's a realistic standpoint of too many people in this world. I still hated him for what he did and didn't like that part of the story at all (it felt like it was there just to add extra drama).

Overall I rate this with 3 stars, with the narration at 2 stars.

A listened to book 1 (Garrett) as well and I did enjoy that one more than Brent, but part of that is because I didn't feel like I got the chance to really know Brent and Calen. Overall the story was nice and entertaining and it was good to see more of the brothers, especially Garrett and his new sub Wyatt. ;) It's clear the author is leading us to the rest of the brothers who have their own stories, and I am okay with that. When the next story is introduced in the current story, sometimes it's not carried off well, because it ignores the current characters. Personally I found it hilarious when Bryce is being "grilled" by his brother about his clients. It's obvious he has feelings for the Dom and Sub pair, but he appears to be fighting it. I would LOVE the chance to read their story.

As for Brent and Caleb, their relationship started off weird to me because we don't get to fully experience their history on page. I would have preferred it if their scene history had been shown in real time and not in flash backs, and I would also have preferred it when they did come together in present time that there hadn't been so many games between them. They've known each other a long time and certainly should have had a sense already of who they were (in and out of the scene), but they kind of did a dance as if to be getting to know them in this new context.

Kenneth Obi is the narrator for books 1 & 2 and overall I enjoyed his narration, particularly Wyatt's. ;) Since the same narrator did do both books, it was a little hard to differentiate between Garrett and Brent. They both had deep voices and maybe I didn't notice in Garrett's book, but Brent's voice didn't come across as a natural tenor. It felt forced and it really took me out of the story. [When Brent "thought" or wasn't actually speaking, his voice was light and natural sounding, nothing like his characters voice when he actually was speaking, which sounded deep and unnatural. (hide spoiler)] Caleb's voice though was sweet and I enjoyed hearing him and his inner ramblings, lol.

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

Yes, and I ha to many of my friends. Because the narration was soooooo awesome and I loved these characters and because I laughed. :D

What did you like best about this story?

Several things, like how Mac tried to kill Cal by tripping him as he is going down the stairs, or how Mac was playing ghost when the realtor was trying to show the house.

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

The voices!! I loved his voices for Mac and the realtor. Sooo great. His narration for all the characters was great, don't get me wrong, but I laughed so much during the realtors time.

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

Moved? No. This was a comedy so there wasn't anything really "moving" about this, but I did like the epilogue where Mac gives us an update on all the characters. That was nice.

OMG, this book was AWESOME!!!! Seriously, if you like to laugh - this is the book to read/listen to (hint - the audio was amazingly wonderful and if you can, choose that option. ;) ). I found myself laughing - out loud!!!! - soooo many times. :D

Mac is a ghost, but that doesn't stop him from being a self-centered dramaqueen, lol. The reason he is a ghost isn't particularly relevant to the story, just know it wasn't foul play. He has left his entire estate to his ex, Cal, who is a broke (lives in his truck) "actor." Dewey is Mac's lawyer and has contacted Cal to iniherit the estate. Now that I've set the scene, let the fun begin!!

Mac - for whatever reason - hasn't moved on to wherever spirits go next. So, he decides to harass Cal and as the blurb says, tries to convince him to kill himself so they can be together forever. Ahh, the comedy. Mac is just a hoot!!! Yes is a selfish a-hole, but he's so, so, hmm, so selfish and crap, I don't know the word for what he is but I loved him!!! And Cal is adorable!! I loved to watch them interact with each other and the ghostbusting was just so gooooood!! I can't express to you how much I loved the haunting and ghostbusting. No there weren't any proton packs, but it was close. ;)

And Dewey, he is so cute and a little flustered around Cal, but part (if not most) of that is due to the fact that the Red Barn Players (local theatre group) is in need of Cal's money so they can finish their latest production. Dewey had kind of been put in charge of getting Cal to donate money and it leads to some interesting interactions, lol. :)

The narration - Award Winning. This was just so great. The voices for each character were so unique and done so well, I couldn't wait to get back to this audio. The realtor Cal hired to sell Mac's house - I just looooooooved her!!! She had the funniest voice and her reactions to the "haunting" are to - die - for!!

Please, oh pleeeeease tell me there is going to be a sequel. I MUST have more of Mac and Cal and Dewey and the whole gang.

I give this 5 big stars and 10 for the narration. ;)
