Another homicide has rocked the small town of Fallsburg, New York. In a cabin nestled deep in the woods, two male victims are discovered, both gunshot victims. One is deceased the other one is barely alive. But it is not the murder itself that has detectives Jean Whitley and her new partner Marty Keal frantic to find out the answers of what occurred in that cabin, it is the identities of the two small children also found at the scene.

This is a sad story, and unfortunately our world is full of these kind of child abuse and kidnappings. Very emotional. I would prefer to skip the bad language.

The narrator did a good job.

The name's Daniels, Jack Daniels - just like the whiskey you know. I'm a private detective. And I can't help butting my nose into other people's business. It's what I do. You get used to it. It becomes a way of life almost. After a while it comes natural to you, automatic, like breathing, or eating, although not quite as enjoyable. It's a habit that I just can't break. I just can't help it. But sometimes it can lead you into trouble....

I am really enjoying the writing style of John Holt. This is another wonderful short mystery! It was a little hard to get used to Joe Voegler' narration, but once I did it was OK.

Gabrielle's shy twin sister is betrothed to a heathen prince from the far north. A Viking! Francesca would not survive the journey north much less the frozen wilderness of her new home. The only way Gabrielle can save her delicate sister is to take her place. Together the twins create a web of deceit that quickly spins out of control leaving a trail of death in its wake. Gabrielle is the elder twin and heir to the throne. Francesca was second born by a matter of minutes, but those critical minutes were enough to label her the spare heir and she felt it every day.

I enjoyed this book very much. It is a clean romance with no dull moments and full of action! I’d like to listen to more books by Alaina Standford!

The narrator Kimberly Hobscheid did a great job and has lots of potential, so I look forward to listen to other clean romances narrated by her. As far as production, there were a few sentence repeats here and there, as well as some too long pauses between paragraphs.

Mobsters can be such drama queens sometimes. Lennie's got her work cut out for her when the case of a missing brooch leads her straight into the underbelly of Chicago mob. Booze, deceit, threats...why, between the thugs and her overbearing Uncle - remarkably similar - Lennie's got a little too much to handle. Good thing she doesn't have a tendency to fib her way into deeper trouble, just as things are looking their bleakest. Oh wait. She does!

This book made me realize how much people who have been involved or raised in a cult can suffer and the changes that they need to face in order to escape the cult. I hope that transitional places like Purple Haven do exist somewhere and bring hope to those who need it!

Even-though I would have preferred a female voice for this type of book, Rick Barr’s narration was great!

Death and deception: Appearances are often deceiving and that is the underlying premise in this collection of short crime fiction. In "Live Free or Die" naive 21-year-old Emmy falls hard for 31-year-old Jack, an efficiency expert from New Hampshire who is not all what he seems. In "Murder in the Marsh" cyclist Carrie Anne Camack discovers more than she bargained for in the fertile farmlands of Ontario's Holland Marsh. In the final story, "The Cycopaths", a triathlon team's open-water swim training in Collingwood, Ontario, has deadly consequences.

This story is supposed to be in the 1800s, and I requested it because usually the language and content used in Historical novels is cleaner than what’s now out there, but it was not the case in this one. It seemed unrealistic for the era - too much sex in the minds of the heroes, etc.

The narrator’s voice was good for this type of Western.

This book kept me at the end my seat once I figured out how to speed up the narration! Lots of action, but clean! Thank You Suzanne Hartmann! A beautiful female body guard who is not only mysterious, but has super powers...

The narration by Anthea Hallett-Ybarra was kind of slow - at the beginning it was distracting me too much, then I speed it up to 1.25 and it was OK. She did very good accents!
