When a cop's body is found burned and decapitated, the last thing Andy Carpenter expected is for a stranger to waltz into his office and admit to the crime. For the wise-cracking millionaire defense attorney suffering from "lawyer's block", the case looks like a no-brainer...until the cops pick up another suspect: Andy's lead P.I., Laurie Collins, who happens to be the love of his life.

I usually don't read or listen to books twice. However, I am so addicted to this the sense of humor and the narrator 's performance that I am going through the series again.

Things have been quiet in the coastal town of North Harbor, Maine, since Sarah Grayson and her rescue cat, Elvis, solved their first murder. Sarah is happy running Second Chance, the shop where she sells lovingly refurbished and repurposed items. But then she gets dragged into a controversy over developing the waterfront. Most of the residents - including Sarah - are for it, but there is one holdout: baker Lily Carter.

What did you love best about The Bark Before Christmas?

I have read and listened to most of the Melanie Travis Mysteries. The author has a great sense of humor and family touch. Jessica Almasy brings it all together. There isn't a time in the story that I get confused as to which character is speaking and what a great "Kevin" job!!

Any additional comments?

I decided to write a short review because I was so impressed by the narrator. As you can tell, I have listened to a lot of audio books and feel narration can make or break a book.

January is known as the dead season in the small Smoky mountain community of Hanover County, North Carolina. For dog trainer and wilderness expert Raine Stockton, who hasn't had a client in six month, this season has been deader than most.

Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he's alive - and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plainold "human error" are much more likely to kill him first.

The story is very well written. I very seldom am interested in this type of story but friend said it was a must listen. The narrator is phenomenal
