I love this series and I loved seeing how it all began. Kim is a very complex character and there are times when I both hate her and love her. I just know that I want her on my side. It was great seeing how the team come together and I really liked Dawson. She taught him so much.
Highly recommended.

I have both the ebook and the audio of Bitter Legacy and, as book 2 is coming next year, I decided to relisten to the story. I enjoyed it just as much as I did the first time I read and then listened. I liked the characters and the story kept me listening. I was sorry when I had to get out of the car.
Highly recommended.

I have both the e books and the audio books and I have read/listened to them more than once. Nikki is great although she sometimes makes me grit my teeth. She can send people crazy but you would always want her on your side.
Narrator Henrietta Meire was an excellent choice to voice Nikki.
Highly recommended.

Really good first book in the Ted Darling series. I have read the entire series and I have no trouble in recommending both the books and the audiobook. I was a little unsure about the narrator's voice but it grew on me.

Really worth listening to

I finished listening to 'Their Lost Daughters' today and I have no problem in recommending it to others. It's a top story which is well written and well read. Joy Ellis' books are an auto buy for me - they can't come out quickly enough.
I'm just sorry that I have to wait until October for the next in the series.

Well worth the price of admission

I'm a long time fan of Neil Plakcy and his Mahu series and I was very happy when Joel Leslie was given the task of bringing this story to life. I've been listening to it in the car and this has been making my long distance driving a real pleasure.
Joel's performance is excellent and and I cannot recommend this story highly enough.

Murder in the Rue Dauphine by Greg Herren

I've always liked Greg Herren's books and I was really pleased to find that Murder in the Rue Dauphine is now available as an audio-book. The book is well written and the storyline very engaging. It's been a couple of years since I've read the book so most of it was new again. I was engaged at all times and I was quite sorry when I had to turn my ipod off for a while.
Jerry Wheeler does a good job as narrator although I must admit to not liking Paige's voice. I really liked Chance's voice though.
My one complaint is nothing to do with the book but all to do with it's production. I think that the quality of the sound is not good - it sounds as if the narrator was working in a bathroom or an equally echo-y place. I did get used to it but every time that I turned my ipod back on the annoyance was there again. That being said I will be buying the next book in this format when it is released.

Firstly, I consider Mark a friend. We're friends on FB and he has gifted me with book 2 in the audible series.
I think that this book to fit into the cozy mystery category. It's a murder mystery and one which invites the reader to snuggle down on a Winter's day with a warm drink and a blanket. Get the idea? I have previously read the book on my e-reader but I was more than happy to listen to as well. We pick up so much more when listening to a story. Admittedly, we are guided by both the author and the narrator but I don't mind this. I tend to pick up so much more when listening to a story.
Possible spoiler following so please do not read any further if you don't want to be spoiled.
I like the way that the story is presented and I enjoyed meeting the main characters. We know who one of the murderers is very early in the story but we can really sympathize with her. She has been through so much and I can really understand why she did what she did.
The second murderer was a mystery to me though. The penny didn't drop for quite a while.
I enjoyed both reading this book and then listening to it.
I love audiobooks and have no problem in recommending them and this book is well worth listening to.
It would be a good addition to your library.

This is book one in the series and I'm already going through withdrawal. I finished listening to it about an hour ago and now I want more Skyler.
Skyler, an English teacher, gets caught up in murder and mystery at his school. He's young, enthusiastic, caring and gay but in the closet at his work. When he discovers the body of his principal's son outside of a nightclub, Skyler has to investigate. His friends - and particularly his best friend who is also a detective - warn him but he has to keep going.
Joel Leslie does an excellent job of narrating.
This book is definitely recommended.
