Island Chaptal - nerdy IT engineer by day, romance novel junkie by night - just walked into her messy New York apartment to find Mr. Right waiting for her. No, wait...Mr. Clean. A gentleman professional killer with a bad case of OCD and zero tolerance for unsorted laundry, March isn't there to kill her...yet. He wants the diamond her late mother stole for a sinister criminal organization. Island agrees to help him find it, facing the kind of adversaries who dismember first and ask questions later. Good thing she's got March to show her the ropes. And the guns. And the knives.

Great beginning to this series. Monk brings fun and the unusual to the story line. Love the 2 main charters. She does each one in their foibles perfectly. Can't wait to listen to the rest of the story.

Wow, too bad we won't be receiving any more delights from Jane Lotter. An excellent and yummy story, with many surprises, lots of truths and humor. A sweet package with a bit of history thrown in for good measure. Enjoyed it, this is on the list, "listen again".

His romantic weekend in ruins, shy 20-something artist Perry Foster learns that things can always get worse when he returns home from San Francisco to find a dead body in his bathtub. A dead body in a very ugly sportscoat - and matching socks. The dead man is a stranger to Perry, but that's not much of a comfort; how did a strange dead man get in a locked flat at the isolated Alton Estate in the wilds of the 'Northeast Kingdom' of Vermont? Perry turns to help from 'tall, dark and hostile' former navy SEAL Nick Reno.

Not sure if it was the author or the reader, the beginning was slow and felt like "canned" writing, a bit too descriptive in a weird way. I am glad i stuck with it, enjoyed the story. This was my first novel by Lanyon and gay/male fiction. Thought it was well done.

an easy listen, loved the highlight of how mothers can have such high expectations of their daughters that are so unreasonable. Crusie did a great job of satire with the mother. One of Crusie's better books.

The stories are well written, but VERY dark in nature. It was not what I consider "entertainment". I had to skip some of the stories due to the subject matter. Is our world as horrible and ugly as the author describes... yes, but do we really want to read/listen to the intimate accounts of it. Not I. I tried to give it a good listen, but could not finish it.

The book is certainly written in a different style, one letter, memorandum, email, divorce code at a time to unfold a wonderful story. I enjoyed the story, the different style was a delightful change to the usual and worked perfectly with the multi-dimensional story line. Having the different performers was genius and matched the style. I look forward to more books from Susan Rieger.

Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....
