Her honeymoon may have been less than relaxing, but Skye Boyd née Denison is still high on marital bliss with her new husband, Wally. The fact that their family is about to get bigger is even more exciting, even if Skye is dealing with morning sickness - and trying to hide the news from her ever-meddling mother, May. But Skye quickly comes crashing down from cloud nine when the body of one of her coworkers, science teacher and volleyball coach Blair Hucksford, is found in the school swimming pool.

If you could sum up Murder of an Open Book in three words, what would they be?

excellent, exciting, wanting

What other book might you compare Murder of an Open Book to and why?

I would have the say Connie Shelton Sweet Series. Both series are a lot alike.

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

She did a great job

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

I loved how Wally seem to always put Skye at ease with her doubt and feelings. I also loved the interacting between the two. I have the enjoyed the relationship since book one and I look forward to seeing it grow even more.

Any additional comments?

I have listen to this series from the beginning and I have enjoyed watching the relationships grow between all of the characters. I have to say I love the how Skye has grown as well. She seem more secure in her self than in the past I think that is due to the fact Wally takes her for who she is and loves her the same. He even values her work with him. I look forward to book 20 and see how May and Wally's Dad deal with baby issues. I think it be cool to have his dad involved a little more. Let's not forget about what happen in the office with Skye and the deputy. I think there is more going on there as well. So if you enjoyed the other books you will enjoy this one. It leaves you wanting the next one.

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?

Would you listen to Lightning Strikes again? Why?

First let me say I have not laughed and enjoy myself with a book since Heather Blake potion series. Andromeda and Nick are quite a couple. I love the humor and the tension between. I also love the story behind it. I did not see the bad guy coming till it was to late. I actually thought it was someone else and that doesn't happen often to me. I do have to say Andromeda powers are very strong. I found the story behind how this happen to her interesting and also her relationship with Johnson. I love all of her family and friends. Her sister was a hoot and so was Kelly. Her grandmothers story was so heart felt made me want to cry when they were dancing. This was a wonderful book and if you need something light with a little romance and mystery I recommend this book. I finished it one sitting.

What about Holly Adams’s performance did you like?

Great job.

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

Callie and Wolfe wow a little bit of everything. This is one of the sexiest books I have listen to in a while. Even thought it had some erotic stuff in it I don't see it has a hard core erotic. I enjoyed that the most. Wolfe had needs but in the long run realizes he is doing this because he thinks he need its. Callie is just curious after finding her fiancé with another woman in a BDSM way. The love has been there for both of they just have to come to grips with it and except and boy is it fun going along with them in the book. It was a great love story as well as hot and steamy. I look so forward to the next book because this is a great start to new a series.

Cal love for this broke woman. I have to say I could tell at the end of the second book he was a good person. I have to admit he messed up a few times but what she went through made me cry and hurt for her. The way he helps her heal was so loving. I also love how they were together with there daughter. I enjoyed this one more than the first book and hope there will be third.

I enjoyed the little bit of magic add to the story and how it looks like it is going to be shared with the four sisters. I also love how when he saw her scars he didn't turn away but found her more interesting. His actual growth in the book was great and so was her but I have to say I enjoyed his changes more.

Officer Luz is lucky she still has a job after tasering a male colleague where it counts the most. Sure, he had it coming - which is why the police chief is giving Megan a second chance. The catch? Her new partner can't carry a gun, can't drive a cruiser, and can't recite the Miranda Rights. Because her new partner is a big furry police dog. So that's what the chief meant when he called Megan's partner a real bitch...With Brigit out on the beat, Megan is writing up enough tickets to wallpaper the whole station.

Thrilling, Funny, Interesting

What was one of the most memorable moments of Paw Enforcement?

I have to say when Brigit was speaking about how she felt about the second date when she catches them. I laugh so hard to see it from the officer and the dogs point of view was great. I also like how they both weren't afraid to admit when they were afraid when the bomb went off.

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

This was my first but I will be looking forward to the next one to see how they grow as partners.

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

Yes I did listen to it on setting and my family could stop staring at me laughing to myself.

This is a great first book to a new series.

We're Supernatural Protection & Investigations, known as SPI. We battle the real monsters of myth and legend, but this Halloween we're searching for diamonds.... A gala opening at the Metropolitan Museum of Art has attracted the upper crust of Manhattan - and thieves. A trio of vile harpies attacks the crowd and steals the stars of the exhibition: a colorful cluster of seven cursed diamonds known as the Dragon Eggs. In the right mage's hands, each stone can pack a magical wallop.

Where does The Dragon Conspiracy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

So far is a great book. I enjoyed the first one more but the this one was also good. I do look forward to learning more about Rake. I think he is going to make it interesting. The whole SPI team is great but I would love to more of the others stories as well. I also love learning more about the dragon.

What did you like best about this story?

Seeing the 2 main hero's find romantic interest. I think it is going to bring a little tension to the story and that should be good. Also when we learn of an old enemy being behind it again.

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

Oh yes she is great I love all her book. I love way of telling a story she makes you feel so comfortable you want to keep cleaning house so you can finish the book.

The New York Times best-selling author of The Black Jewels Trilogy transports readers to a world of magic and political unrest - where the only chance at peace requires a deadly price.... The Others freed the cassandra sangue to protect the blood prophets from exploitation, not realizing their actions would have dire consequences. Now the fragile seers are in greater danger than ever before - both from their own weaknesses and from those who seek to control their divinations for wicked purposes.

Yes I would because it takes us to another world that is seen through several eyes. It is exciting and I really look forward to what happens next.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Vision in Silver?

I have to say I enjoy Simons jealous of others. I really liked it when he got jealous of Sam because he got to rub Megs head. I also I am enjoying how the story is taking the friendship of Meg and Simon toward romance but in a slow place were they are learning to become more together. I also love seeing how the others are learning to except some of the humans and there ways enough to ask them questions.
