    "They're all good stories!"

    I originally purchased this book simply because I am such a huge fan of Diana Gabaldon, one of the contributors. Turns out *all* the stories are excellent! Well worth the read.

    "An Amazing Collection"
    Would you listen to MatchUp again? Why?

    At least some of the stories


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked how characters I knew or knew of were matched together to solve problems


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    All the narrators did a good job


    Any additional comments?

    This was a great concept and they did an amazing job of matching up author pairs. I sep liked the small introduction before each story explaining how the authors worked together to complete each story

    "Great Matchups!"

    What a wonderful anthology! This is a MUST READ for Outlander readers! Jamie Fraser and modern day Cotton Malone? Yes and it provides an answer to a question that has been plaguing fans for years! The other stories are all fun listens, too. All the performances are very good. I highly recommend this book!
