People start dropping dead around Charlie, giant ravens perch on his building, and it seems that everywhere he goes, a dark presence whispers to him from under the streets. Strange names start appearing on his nightstand notepad, and before he knows it, those people end up dead, too. Yup, it seems that Charlie Asher has been recruited for a new job, an unpleasant but utterly necessary one: Death.

I must warn you, after this novel you will look at things in second hand stores differently! I still stare at this little vase I bought and wonder... is that it... If you have not read this I will not tell you what I am wondering but you will understand after.

I have a total crush on Charlie Asher! I have read this and listened to it and when I was in San Francisco I insisted on going to China Town so I could imagine him running around there.

I love Christopher Moore! I love his humor, I love his characters, I love that I laugh out loud and people stare at me. He is such a gem.

Fisher is Charlie Asher. If they ever made this into a movie, I would be so angry if Charlie is not Fisher Stephens! He gives so much to his voice and you truly feel like you know him!

Everyone should hear or read this novel! You should also meet Minty Fresh!

I don't want to give away story but man did this take twists I did not see coming! Clark/Clara is an amazing character, definitely making hard choices and she grows so much as a character. Fletcher is someone I wish I could invite over to parties. My only complaint is that I wish I could hear the music he plays. Sounds haunting.
This was my first novel by Melissa Delport and I really enjoyed it! She makes bold choices and I find that refreshing.

The narration was really good, I just had a few times when I was unsure who was talking. But besides that she did very well.

The journey of this book goes across many years, states, and stories. It was a lovely experience.

A very sweet, historical, clean romance. It was touching to watch a duke fall on hard times and be able to relate with his peers in ways that touched the heart. Our leading lady was as sweet as she was smart. Very lovely story and perfect for a day where you would like to sit back and have some tea and be whisked away to simpler times. I thoroughly enjoyed the epilogue as well, wish I could have listened to that for a few hours longer. This felt like an escape to a BBC show.

The narration was wonderful. He did great voices for all of the characters. Even when one character was talking to a crowd he did a stellar job voicing a lot of the people in the crowd and no one sounded like anyone else.

I enjoyed this so much I downloaded the first in this series and plan on having a go soon!

When my teammates drag me to a club for my 21st birthday, the last thing on my mind is meeting a new guy. I’m not the kind of girl who gets wrapped up in a stranger on a sweaty dance floor. Except, that’s exactly what happens. Only, the guy isn’t a stranger. He’s Jett Decker, the Olympic track star who has the entire campus buzzing with his transfer to our college. He may have given me his number, but I won’t use it. I refuse to be distracted by silly things like explosive chemistry. I’ve got my own Olympic dreams to chase.

I have never read Ali Dean before but I had heard the narrator before and I really wanted to hear her again, she was so good. I very impressed with Ali Dean, she had a lot of heart and depth. Normally I am the kind that can shy away from novels that have something to do with sports, but this was wonderfully done! I even learned somethings I did not know before. Shay was complex and so was Jet. I also really enjoyed getting to know both their families. I think all of us has known a mother like Shay's. I also really enjoyed the sister relationship.

Stacey Glemboski did a wonderful job. She has so much emotion in her voice that she draws you in and keeps you there.

All in all, a really great story and experience!

I really loved the house that this novel takes place in! What I wouldn't give to inherit a house like that! It was a great location for our lead characters to be in. This is not really a what goes bump in the night and leave the light on kind-a-story, more a who can you trust and who is the murderer kind-a-story. You do get to see some ghosts and have the classic mirror that use to be covered and I wonder why.. I do so enjoy a good do I cover the mirror or not dilemma. I also liked the character Trent. He was well developed.

The narration I struggled with. I found it slow and wish it would have sped up with action scenes. I also did not like the voice of the lead female, it sounded kind-a- drag queen like and it took me out of the story a few times. He did do a good job with accents.

If you are looking for a story that has some ghosts and a lot of sex, look no further.

I have very much enjoyed this whole series/ That being said, this was my least favorite of all the novels I just felt the cusp of the story was resolved very fast without giving us a glimpse into our villain. I would have liked to have seen him earlier and be terrified from them on out and then see the ending we got. IT just felt rushed. This whole world was great and vivid.

The narration was wonderful! It would be half the experience if you only read this series. You get so much more with this narration~ She is stellar!

I was apprehensive going into this, not the biggest fan of vampires. I was looking for more paranormal regency romance, ghosts and such and decided to give this a chance. I am glad I did. I was gripped from the opening! This was a great experience and you can easily get lost in the story. My only issues were that in the background of the audio there was some weird clicks that I found distracting and I did hear some words pronounced wrong but the narrator did do a great job besides these issues. . I am planning on making my way through the series now. =)

I really enjoyed this audio book! It had it all, a library. old books, magic, a good looking man, a mother who disappeared. For such a short story, this was packed with story! It was a great world to enter and linger in.

The narration was great, I have heard her before under a different name. She is very distinctive and does a great job.

He had always been a source of humor and annoyance, but this book was something new! I also been waiting to see more Emme, she is one of my favorite characters and now she has a lot, A LOT going on with her. This audiobook was everything I wanted it to be and so much more! I just wished it could have been longer, it seemed a small taste to a person who has been starving for this series! As always, Vanessa Moyen slayed it! She was a perfect find for this series.

What an opening! Maggie takes her dog in because he ate something he should not have. What is recovered is a pair of woman's underwear... that is not hers! Hell of a why to find out your husband is cheating. The journey that Maggie takes us on from there is a charming and healing one. You grow to love her family, friends, and Kona (her dog.) The humor is this story was delightful and had me smiling often. The author really did a great job with presenting well developed characters.

My only complaint is I thought it ended it too quickly. I would have loved for there to be one more chapter. Show us more of that ending, we have spent a long time to get to this desired ending and I really wanted to linger there.
The narration was great! At one point Maggie is drunk and I thought Aisling nailed that scene! She did a great job at displaying emotion and it was clear and not rushed or too slow. It was just right. =)
