Angharad "Harry" Russo has had a busy week. She's fended off a swarm of pixies, battled blood-thirsty redcaps, and put an end to a maniacal Fae prince hell-bent on eradicating the entire werewolf population. She's also decided to open a coffee shop. Is it too much to ask for things to settle down so her life can go back to normal? Apparently it is. As if being metaphysically bound to Cian Nash, the most aggravating-yet-desirable man she's ever met, isn't enough, Harry's just found out that the Magister, the biggest, baddest vampire around, is her father.

What made the experience of listening to Deadlocked the most enjoyable?

I read the book and greatly enjoyed it so I knew I would love the listening experience as well...assuming the reader did a good job. She is awesome! I will keep listening and hoping that book 4 is picked up - come on Tantor!

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

It made me laugh, cry, cringe, exclaim and pretty much runs the gambit. What more can you ask for?

Any additional comments?

Read it, listen to it or do like me and do both - it's great!

Growing up in one of Florida's age-55-plus communities, Charlotte never expected life to be wild. Golf cart racing with her surrogate mothers Mariska and Darla was about as nutty as life got... until she found the hot pawnbroker's mom buried in her backyard.

If you could sum up Pineapple Lies in three words, what would they be?

Funny, cute, mustread

What did you like best about this story?

The humor for sure and it's not just the same old story line - it's fresh.

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

I read and loved the book so I was very excited to find it available on audible. This reader does a great job with the voices and bringing the story to life. Having read the book first I wasn't real sure about the main character, Charlottes voice. It just sounded different than I had imagined in my head - a little older I guess. However, I got over that and just enjoyed the story. There is a large cast of older characters in this book and the reader has them spot on.

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

Very much so. I love a great humorous mystery, with a great cast of characters, a community that I would want to live in or at least interact with ;) There is so much to enjoy about this story.

Any additional comments?

If you need a good laugh, and a great escape from the moment then I urge you to hurry and purchase this book and settle back for a mini vacation from reality. Be prepared to smile:) This is a book I will be able to listen to again and again.

Where does Death by Chocolate rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The book is one of my favorite - the whole series is awesome, very funny!

Any additional comments?

One of my favorite authors - I can hardly wait for the next in the series. I love mysteries that make me laugh and this series does that. I didn't care for the reader at first but I love the book so much I kept listening and by the end of the book she had grown on me. She is able to do different voices to distinguish between characters and that is important to me. If you don't like the reader just keep listening but if you can't get used to her just read the book - you won't be sorry.

As a null, Scarlett Bernard possesses a rare ability to counteract the supernatural by instantly neutralizing spells and magical forces. For years she has used her gift to scrub crime scenes of any magical traces, helping the powerful paranormal communities of Los Angeles stay hidden. But after LAPD detective Jesse Cruz discovered Scarlett's secret, he made a bargain with her: solve a particularly grisly murder case, and he would stay silent about the city's unearthly underworld.

Where does Trail of Dead rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Near the top. I have been a member of audible for several years and have quite a collection going. I usually read a book and if I like it then will get it on cd to listen to in the car. When I love a story and then the narrator of the audio version stinks it can ruin it for me. I am happy to say that this narrator is well suited to this series and didn't detract from the story. Although it was strange that she used a different voice for Jesse the cop - I really liked the Hispanic voice she gave him in story one. I decided I didn't care though, just different. She did a good job, hope she reads for the next one as well.
