Winter Makepeace lives a double life. By day he's the stoic headmaster of a home for foundling children. But the night brings out a darker side of Winter. As the moon rises, so does the Ghost of St. Giles-protector, judge, fugitive. When the Ghost, beaten and wounded, is rescued by a beautiful aristocrat, Winter has no idea that his two worlds are about to collide. Lady Isabel Beckinhall enjoys nothing more than a challenge. Yet when she's asked to tutor the Home's dour manager in the ways of society, Isabel can't help wondering why his eyes seem so familiar - and his lips so tempting.

I really liked Winter's story. I liked that it was not the normal Lord marries a Lady. I also love the interjected humour! I really liked the ending which wasn't quite what I was expecting.

I love this author but the narrator just wrecked the story. Pretty monotone and made it hard to actually focus on the story. Going to have to buy the book instead. Was grating the way she pronounced harlequin. Definitely not the voice for this type of story.

Stephanie Plum, Trenton, New Jersey's favorite pistol-packing, condom-carrying bounty hunter, is back and on the trail of a revenge-seeking waitress who's skipped bail. With the help of 73-year-old Grandma Mazur, ex-hooker Lula, a transvestite musician named Sally Sweet, and the all-too-hospitable, all-too-sexy Joe Morelli, Stephanie might just catch her woman.

Would you try another book from Janet Evanovich and/or CJ Critt?

I really like Janet Evanovich as a writer.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The story kept me laughing all the way through.

What didn???t you like about CJ Critt???s performance?

The narrator didn't really bring the characters to life. They kind of felt flat.

Was Four to Score worth the listening time?

The book was funny so yes it was worth listening to.

Any additional comments?

If the story wasn't so funny i would ditch listening to the rest of the books.

I loved this book. It was definitely an interesting read. I laughed and cried listening to this. Definitely makes you think about your own life and how thankful we should all be.

This book was better than Fishbowl. Almost fell off my seat laughing so hard. The characters were interesting and again the ending isn't what i expected. As it is an audio book some of the items (ie emails) don't come off as well as they would in print. The narrator could have done reading the email a little differently, it was the only irritating part of the book.

Allison, Jodine, and Emma set their apartment on fire. No, they didn't do it on purpose. What kind of lunatics do you think they are? And don't go worrying. No one got hurt, although they did go to the hospital. Unfortunately, there was no one in white yelling stat!, no one climbing aboard a gurney to thump life back into someone's heart and no hot paramedic performing artificial respiration. What they do have now is one giant repair bill and no money. No problem.

This book wasn't great but it was funny. Some of the antics by the characters was interesting and it didn't end like one would think.If you are looking for a laugh definitely listen to this book.
