Dina Pearlman did an excellent job of narration. The storyline is not perfect, but it is very entertaining. Good listen for a road trip.

Mother, wife, private investigator... vampire. Six years ago federal agent Samantha Moon was the perfect wife and mother, your typical soccer mom with the minivan and suburban home. Then the unthinkable happens, an attack that changes her life forever. And forever is a very long time for a vampire. Now the world at large thinks Samantha has developed a rare skin disease, a disease which forces her to quit her day job and stay out of the light of the sun.

Would you consider the audio edition of Moon Dance to be better than the print version?

I have not read the print version, but the audio version was thoroughly enjoyable.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Moon Dance?

When the heroin discovers her origins.

Which character – as performed by Dina Pearlman – was your favorite?

The main character.

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

See Moon Dance dance with the Moon!

Any additional comments?

I listened to this story while sitting in rush hour traffic and it was engaging, thrilling, querky, and completely enjoyable. Rush hour rushed by as I learned about the heroin's totally bizzare and complicated life. This is not for someone who wants a very deep and sublevel story with psycological overtones.

Recently widowed, grieving Los Angeles midwife/nurse Melinda Monroe answers a small upstate town's ad for help. Nestled amongst California's giant redwoods, quaint Virgin River is host to many quirky characters - including bar owner Jack Sheridan, who may be just the man to make Melinda smile again.

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

Yes, I would recommend it to women my age and to women who love the old romance formula of city woman meets hunky mountain man.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Virgin River?

The big love encounter.

Which character – as performed by Therese Plummer – was your favorite?

Doc

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

When Melinda Monroe reveals an important element about her past.

Any additional comments?

The story is somewhat predictable, but, it is enjoyable. The predictability does not deminish the overall story. It is a good listen while you drive story and it does have an element of wanting to know what happens next.

Miss Pettigrew is a down-on-her-luck, middle-aged governess sent by her employment agency to work for a nightclub singer rather than a household of unruly children. Over a period of 24 hours, as she becomes caught up in the life of Delysia LaFloss, her own life is changed - forever. This charming, funny, light-hearted 1938 novel was a bestseller on its first appearance. Read by Academy Award winning actress Frances McDormand, who stars in the 2008 film as Miss Pettigrew.
