A cute story. The narrators were excellent in portraying the characters. Sonja's wit was hilarious & Amanda did such a wonderful job bringing out her personality. And Jonathan's Zed with his strong Louisiana accent in all the Mystic Bayou stories is priceless & actually reminds you of a big ol' bear talking. Overall a fun book to listen to & I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I loved these two characters story the best so far. Their struggles were heartwrenching. But the ending was great.
I would've given the narrator 5 stars except for the quivering sounds she put in her voice in certain emotional situations.

I like romance stories but not the ones that are mainly about sex with scene after scene of sexual encounters. Stories like this one that are well written and have substance are right up my alley. And of course the narrators can make or break the story. I've heard these two narrators in other books and their performances have always been great!

The narrators brought out the different voices & accents really well. I think my favorite voice was Zed. Also the dialogue between Zed & Bael was great!
The whole series is a fun read!

I admit I didnt finish this book. Maybe I should give it more of a chance but it seemed to be going in the direction of being mostly about sex. I know that Maxim is basically looking for a relationship with more substance just as I'm looking for a story with more substance. I may go back & finish it at some point because my opinion is based just on the first few chapters which is probably not very fair of me. But I got bored with it & had no desire to keep going.

Was not interested in the tapping which seemed to be his focus.
Was going to return the book but skipped to the end regarding the hands on healing.

Thankfully short. I like haunted house stories but not a fan of ones that involve kids.

The first book started out pretty good. Then as I got into it I realized it was about teenagers. I really didnt want to get into a teen novel so I decided to stop listening. But I later hadn't chosen another book & didnt feel like shopping for a new one so I picked up where I left off. As I continued to listen the mystery of who did what deepened so I got to the end just to realize that it was a cliffhanger! So I had to finish the trilogy. Teenagers are the central characters but there's enough involvement of the adults in the story to keep any age interested. And let's face it...there's still a little teenager in all of us. Good story!

Loved this as much as Book 1.
Once again Jennifer Grace nailed it! The scene in the Las Vegas spa & the Elvis chapel had me in tears!

This was the cutest story. The characters were really great. Janie is so funny. I laughed out loud throughout the entire book...especially when the bad guys caught up with Janie & the knitting girls. And her personality meshed so well with Quinn.
If I had read the book instead of listening it still would have been hilarious but listening to a book requires the right narrator to bring out the personalities of the characters. Jennifer Grace pulled it off with flying colors!
