    "Junk"

    I didn't finish it. But as most of the later books by this author, it's just junk.

    "Stabenow and Gavin a winning combination"

    Dana Stabenow is one of my favorite authors, her stories keep you wanting more and Marguerite Gavin has a way of making the entire thing come to life.

    Story
    "Kate is Hard Act to Follow"

    Just before I listened to Fire & Ice again (I read it when first released), I browsed through the reviews and was quite surprised at the negative comments. Yes, this series doesn't have as much humor as Kate's and there's no cute dog, but I wonder if Kate is just a hard act to follow.

    I also struggle with the infidelity issue - both Liam and Wy admitted their affair was wrong. However, it made the point that good people sometimes make mistakes, which can be forgiven. Liam genuinely cared for his wife, was never violent or controlling and showed all the women he encountered respect and consideration.

    I really liked Wy, a confident & intelligent pilot who was trying to adopt a 12 year old boy she had rescued from terrible abuse. When she broke up with Liam, she didn't wallow in self pity. No, she started her own business, created a home and became a mother. What a pleasant change from the submissive little wimps so popular lately.

    I also liked Moses (shaman) and Bill (female bar owner), who were over 55 and still passionate about life and each other. This series has great potential; a wide variety of characters, interesting setting and a little romance.

    Story
    "Thoroughly Unbelievable"

    I rarely refuse to finish a book. In point of fact my average is less than 1 out of a 100, however, this has the dubious honor of joining that club. Not only is the handoff, then the town, a witty parody of reality, but the sex scene with a prime suspect at the scene of a grisly murder destroys any hope of realism. This is bad, if well narrated. Avoid it.

    Story
    "Did not get very far, might be a good story?"
    What would have made Fire and Ice: A Liam Campbell Mystery better?

    I don't know I couldn't bare the narrator.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I don't know I have been disillusioned with my varied choices.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I did not even give the story a chance. Her voice was irritating. She did not do men well at all. She failed this book.


    What character would you cut from Fire and Ice: A Liam Campbell Mystery?

    I didn't get very far. I may later when I am over the experience listen to the last couple chapters and see if at least the end was good.


    Any additional comments?

    I can not imagine that directors etc. listen to some of these books and say yes put it out there. All I can think of is too much money has been invested with the narrator, a contract, or the crew is afraid of retribution?

    "Not impressive."

    The narrator was a poor choice. She can read well enough. The main character is a man and her male voice is not good. Can't figure why a female reader was chosen. Mystery was good in the end. Had trouble getting into it and staying focused.

    "Just didn't do it for me at all"

    Just didn't do it for me at all. I didn't like the narrator. I couldn't get into the story. I just didn't find it interesting in anyway.

    Story
    "Crime mystery in quirky Alaskan town."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fire and Ice: A Liam Campbell Mystery to be better than the print version?

    No idea, but the narrator was very likeable and did a good performance... So Maybe.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Likeable main character, nice quirky little Alaskan "Northern Exposure" like town. Suprisingly alot happening all the time, what happened in the past, relationship with the female flyer and the current crime mystery.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked the herring fishing/spotting sequence for some reason. I don't know how accurate it was, but I found it very interesting to follow the short herring fishing "season" from flyers/spotters point of view.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Almost.

    Story
    "Police Procedural Murder in Alaska"
    What made the experience of listening to Fire and Ice: A Liam Campbell Mystery the most enjoyable?

    Fire and Ice

    The first time that I listened to this I did not really enjoy it. I don't know what changed but my second listen (a year later) and I was really enthralled and caught up in the mystery.

    This takes place in Alaska with lots of colorful characters and several storylines to keep everything interesting. If I didn't have a whole bunch of books to listen to already I would definitely go and listen to the rest of the series.

    Perhaps I will later on. It has peaked my interest.

    The narrator did an adequate job differentiating between characters there were several female and more male characters as well as a preteen boy. I didn't know who was speaking at all times based on his narration.

    NOTE: A couple of bedroom scenes & a few cuss words

    Credit Worthy: Perhaps, I got this on sale for $1.99 - fluke! I will get any others in the series, only on sale BOGO or % off


    Who was your favorite character and why?
