After an over two year wait, I expected more resolution. This does not reflect it.

The narratsor's accents were so distracting and grating, it was difficult to focus on the content. When reading materials are not serious, I like to listen to relax. This was unpleasant.

No, it's not War and Peace. The Bradford clan's NFH series is the perfect mental vacation and mood reset; guaranteed laugh out loud.

Where does How to Date Your Dragon rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

My problem with the performances center around the dual narration. In this book, it is not as effective as it can be for others. Also, there are editing glitches that distract. With that being said, both narrators are fabulous. Because of the issues in the area of narration, I feel that it does not meet the extremely high standards of Accidental Sire and The Single Mom's Undead Club.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The primary protagonists are both well developed and endearing.

What about Amanda Ronconi and Jonathan Davis ’s performance did you like?

Each is a superior narrator, but their styles for characters do not flow together. Ronconi is the definitive voice of Molly Harper, but I really enjoyed Jonathan Davis.

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

As with all of Molly Harper's books, once started you can't stop.

Any additional comments?

Hope that this is only the beginning of a new series.

Would you consider the audio edition of Lost in You to be better than the print version?

The narrator does a fabulous job bringing each of the characters to life.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Lost in You?

The interactions between characters from previous books makes this have a "homey" feel. It is like visiting favorite relatives.

Would you listen to Diablo Lake: Moonstruck again? Why?

Have listened to it again when I need to relax. The dialogue is witty, and the protagonists are engaging.

What other book might you compare Diablo Lake: Moonstruck to and why?

This is the paranormal version of her Petal/Chase series, which I absolutely love. It has a true Southern feel.

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

She does a fine job with all voices, especially those of the different male characters.

Any additional comments?

It is not War and Peace, but it is entertaining and relaxing.

The repartee is crisp, the action is continuous, and the heroine is both thoughtful and a real badass.

What was one of the most memorable moments of At Blade's Edge?

Rowan considers options then commits to her actions - no holes barred.

If you could sum up Big Vamp on Campus in three words, what would they be?

Snarkey, Witty. Crisp.

The opening smack-down was hilarious. Ophelia at her finest.

Amanda Ronconi has thoroughly captured the Kentucky twang. There could be no other narrator for this series.

This is the perfect follow-up to The Dangers of Dating a Rebound Vampire.

Lib Stratton has contracted cancer that does not respond to treatment. As a widow, she has deep concerns for her six year old son and decides to join the undead. Mayhem ensues.

It is the best in the series. Beware - once you start the series, you can't quit. I've bought them all.
