Dakota Jones is the second youngest of four children who had a difficult upbringing living with parents who struggle with mental illness. He escaped his family as soon as he could by joining the military. Now, after several tours of duty he has been discharged. He has nowhere to go and no solid plans for the future. Refusing to return home to his parents he arrives in Sullivan's Crossing where his brother Cal and sister Sierra have each experienced the healing power of the place and its people. Nestled at the crossroads of the Colorado and Continental Divide Trails, the area attracts those looking for answers or direction or a new lease on life. Dakota will come to terms with his less-than-perfect family and will plant the roots he's never had.

Using my supernatural powers, I pick up extra cash working with the local PD. I'm their go-to girl when they have someone they need to find. Despite all of this, my life is pretty boring - that is, until the very hot Detective Nick Cavanaugh came into my life. Boy, did we get off on the wrong foot. I was asked to pair up with Detective Cavanaugh to look for three missing children. Did I mention that he doesn't believe in my superpowers?

Homicide partners Elise Sandburg and David Gould were the Savannah PD's dream team, solving uncrackable crimes and catching killers.

A secret government unit is formed under the oversight of Adam Harrison, famed paranormal investigator. The case: In a historic mansion in New Orleans’ French Quarter, a senator’s wife falls to her death from a balcony. Most think she jumped, distraught over the loss of her young son. Some say she was pushed. And yet others believe she was beckoned by the ghostly spirits that inhabit the house - once the site of a serial killer’s grisly work.

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

Phantom Evil is a truly terrific listen that I highly recommend to any paranormal fan who enjoys an excellent storyline that captures and holds the attention of the listener.

What did you like best about this story?

The well balanced mix of a solid paranormal mystery and an interesting romance.

What three words best describe Jeffrey Cummings’s performance?

Female voices faulty!!!

Any additional comments?

Please consider finding a woman for the women's voices---these characters lost their edge because of the unbelieveable voices

The Profiler's Daughter is a psychologically haunting thriller that combines murder mystery, love triangle, and family intrigue in one satisfying page burner. Sky Stone was born into the wealth and privilege of Boston's oldest Brahmin family but chooses instead to follow in the footsteps of her deceased father, legendary FBI profiler Monk Stone. In the chilly morning hours before the Boston Marathon, when a beautiful university student is found strangled and mutilated, her body left at the base of Heartbreak Hill, Sky returns from self-imposed exile to investigate.

Where does The Profiler's Daughter rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

In the top 5% of my library.

What does Gabrielle de Cuir bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Although the male character's voices were somewhat off, the narration for Sky was right on the mark. I demonstrated a genuine understanding of the regret and angst, as well as the uncertainty, experienced by Sky.

Any additional comments?

Can't wait for the next installment!

In "Undead Sublet" by Molly Harper, executive chef Tess Maitland is banned from her five-star kitchen in Chicago to recover from "exhaustion".

Even though Sam Masden's ex-wife has rented the house out from under him, the divorce settlement allows him access to it for another ninety days. With Tess unable to go anywhere else, and Sam unwilling, a war of epic proportions is declared - and romantic sparks and heavy pots fly.

I've listened to every one of Molly Harper's wonderfully imaginative and funny books---and LOVED them all! Unfortunately, this novella's narrator absolutely ruined what was a very nice Valentine's Day gift from Audible. Please bring back Amanda Ronconi. She IS Jane Jameson. Thanks for 'listening'.
