What made the experience of listening to The Shamrock Case the most enjoyable?

A little mystery, a clean romance going on, after a fun and humorous friendship.This author always has such descriptive, details of locations, characters, and story. It's like being there, in the Castles of Ireland! I liked that there wasn't much violence and No gory details. The Shamrock Case, could help give ideas, to find your own ancestors.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Shamrock Case?

When they reunite the adopted teen girl, not just with her grandparents, a set of her Great grandparents too! They also have her uncle, and 2 aunts there to reunite.The biggest surprise, was finding out the parents that adopted her, they ended up being relatives too! None the other relatives knew that, until they saw the daughter that ran off to America ! Great reuniting of all the relatives.

Which scene was your favorite?

When Amilia and Rick, are racing back to the car, in the pouring rain! Then when they get to the car, Rick accidentally drops the key to the car. They find the key under the car, which gives them an excuse to hug and kiss in the Rain!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Reuniting Ancestors from Ireland

Any additional comments?

I liked the author's notes at the end, that told of how this is based on a true story. I think it was the father, Daniel, was really the author's Great Grandpa.I also liked hearing about her next book. Linda's books give so much scenic detail, to the tourist attractions, that you actually feel like your there! Pack your bags for Mexico Book 3!

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

Interesting, realistic action & suspense. A nice romance that first started off as practically enemies. Great detail that really puts you in the story.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Through Love's Trials?

When Kenneth goes to Emma's house,when she doesn't show up for their meeting together.
He arrives just in time to fight off the Sleazy Guy that broke into Emma's house, and still was there attacking her.

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

Haven't heard him before.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

My heart was pounding when they were being chased down and when their lives are in danger.

Any additional comments?

Was easy to relate to and connect, by just being a parent, and having the concern when one of your children are lost or in danger.
I avoid movies and books that have violence. This book did have fighting and even people dying, yet not all the gory, gross details of it all.
