Publisher's Summary

Contains books one and two of the humorous sci-fi Jane Bond series.

Some Assembly Required, book one 

An alien pilot. A chocolate cake. A doomed relationship or two. 

Jane’s life as an elementary school librarian gets sidetracked when she digs up the AI pilot of a 140-million-year-old spacecraft. Now, she’s running all over the world looking for spaceship parts, falling in and out of love, and trying to keep her friends from thinking she’s crazy. To make matters worse, the ship she’s recovering is starting to sound a bit more like the Death Star than the Millennium Falcon. When did life get so complicated? 

Dark Side of the Moon, book two 

Fully stocked spaceship garage - check. Fully prepped spaceship - check. Fully trained...and ready to pilot? Jane’s got her own spaceship, but she has no idea how to even get it out of the garage, let alone fly it. No worries, everything’s under control - meet Olive, Jane’s new pilot! 

Jane finds some very interesting things in the basement left behind when Kit went away. Among them is a fully operational space ship. After an almost shattering start, Jane and her friends are globetrotting again, with the addition of Olive to pilot the ship - and make pancakes. Olive isn’t a real person, but she’s working hard at becoming one - and learning how to make pancakes and waffles along the way. But will pancakes be enough to deal with Jane’s mom and whatever lies on the dark side of the moon?

Interesting idea if not perfect

Good storyline and fun listening. A few things were just too simple and made the story seem more like a children’s book rather than an adult novel. But overall I’m glad I took the time to listen.

PG 13 Scifi stories.

If you have read the books then you'll truly enjoy these Audible versions even more.
Tess Irondale does a great job narrating these two stories. Her voices for the various characters is spot on.
Definitely a fun and sometimes asilly situations but she makes it work.

but still its pretty good listening, the characters are nice, the performance by tess irondale is great.

There are some errors in it (tibet is not an independent country)

but the story moves at a nice pace and keeps you listening

I really enjoyed the read

I was ready to book publisher pack and didn’t even realize it in two days. The story is good with just the amount of happy fun with mild foreshadowing. It makes me want more I already bought the second publishers pack.

Very Entertaining Story and Great Performance

This was very entertaining, had just the right amount of pop culture references and snark with out being over done. Tess Irondale is Awesome she is one of the best narrators on Audible.
