Dani unexpectedly inherits an enormous old house in a quaint college town and pursues her true passion - cooking! She opens Chef-to-Go, preparing delicious, ready-made meals for hungry students as well as providing personal chef services. To help support her new business, she opens her home to a few students, renting them rooms and becoming almost like a big sister figure in their lives. But just as Dani is relishing her sweet new life, the friend of one of her boarders is murdered, and Dani becomes one of the primary suspects!

I listened to the entire book, but it was very heavy handed, lacking any sense of grace or fluidity.

I love the Super Powered and Fred series, but am not as excited about the NPC series. this storyline should've been my "thing", but the narration kept bumping me out of the story. the narrators spoke so closely to each other, it felt like they were interrupting each other constantly instead of having a conversation. Don't think I'll be listening to this one repeatedly like I do the others.

Despite having their secret revealed, the residents of Melbrook Hall return to Lander University for another year in the Hero Certification Program. Good thing the focus of this year is teamwork, because with their origins known, they'll have to lean on each other more than ever. Now finally sophomores, their curriculum expands, allowing them to train in the majors that Heroes specialize in. The new classes will test their minds, bodies, and determination in ways never anticipated.

It is rare for me to love a book so much that I want to savor it rather than speed to the finish. Year 2 continued the characters and varied plot line I had grown to love in year 1. Very much worth the credit.

The year is 2008 and Samantha Kofer's career at a huge Wall Street law firm is on the fast track - until the recession hits and she gets downsized, furloughed, escorted out of the building. Samantha, though, is one of the "lucky" associates. She's offered an opportunity to work at a legal aid clinic for one year without pay, after which there would be a slim chance that she'd get her old job back. In a matter of days Samantha moves from Manhattan to Brady, Virginia, population 2,200, in the heart of Appalachia, a part of the world she has only read about.

When we last left the mighty wizard detective Harry Dresden, he wasn't doing well. In fact, he had been murdered by an unknown assassin. But being dead doesn't stop him when his friends are in danger. Except now he has nobody, and no magic to help him. And there are also several dark spirits roaming the Chicago shadows who owe Harry some payback of their own. To save his friends - and his own soul - Harry will have to pull off the ultimate trick without any magic....

I'm four hours into the book, and am excited to hear the rest. I'm sure the neighbors heard my cry of distress when I realized Marsters was not the narrator, and I was wary for the first half hour - but I'm completely captivated by the story at this point. There have been moments when a word or phrase or voice isn't quite right, but it's not keeping me from enjoying the story.
