Audio book reviews

 

Audio book reviews are different from other book reviews because a good audio book relies on two things. A good story and an excellent narrator.

Publisher’s Summary

Grateful Knight isn’t looking for love when she moves into a rent-free house on the edge of a graveyard. At 22, all she wants is to recover financially so she can move back to the city where she belongs. But sparks fly when the gorgeous cemetery caretaker, Rick, introduces himself and mentions his suspicion that her new house might be haunted. Her attraction to him seems supernatural, and despite her resolve not to get involved, she literally can’t keep her hands off him. When things in Grateful’s house start moving on their own, another man enters her life – Logan, a sexy ghost with a dark secret. He says Rick isn’t what he seems, and indulging her passion for him could cost her soul. One thing’s for sure: Magical forces are at work in the tiny town of Red Grove, and they’re converging on Grateful. Life will never be the same once she’s forced to choose between the ghost and the graveyard.

My Review

What did you like about this audio book.

I really enjoy the storyline in this book, there are so many things that Grateful has to juggle to keep her life on track while adjusting to being a witch with so many responsibilities and challenges. It is quiet a sexy read along with suspense, paranormal adventure.

Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does she achieve this?

Genevieve Jack presents the story and the information in a very enjoyable way. Conversations that take place within the book explain the nature of her role and the challenges she faces as the Monks Hill witch. The story is told through Grateful’s point of view and it means that we discover things as she does and also that we get her thought process as well. The  story-line is well thought out and well presented, making it a pleasure to listen to.

Do you have any additional comments?

Brittany Pressley does a wonderful job with narrating this book. There are male and female voices along with different accents and she manages to give each character a very distinct, believable voice throughout the whole story. Brittany manages to express the emotions and situations within the book while maintaining a steady reading style.

There are 4 books in this series and they all meet the high quality of writing and narration that is present in the first book.

Nice Girls Don’t Have Fangs: Half-Moon Hollow, Book 1

ScreenHunter_29 Jan. 07 05.51

Author Molly Harper

Narrated Amanda Ronconi

Overall 5 star

Performance 5 star

Story 4 star

Publisher’s Summary

Maybe it was the Shenanigans gift certificate that put her over the edge. When children’s librarian and self-professed nice girl Jane Jameson is fired by her beastly boss and handed $25 in potato skins instead of a severance check, she goes on a bender that’s sure to become Half Moon Hollow legend. On her way home, she’s mistaken for a deer, shot, and left for dead. And thanks to the mysterious stranger she met while chugging neon-colored cocktails, she wakes up with a decidedly unladylike thirst for blood.

 

Jane is now the latest recipient of a gift basket from the Newly Undead Welcoming Committee, and her life-after-lifestyle is taking some getting used to. Her recently deceased favorite aunt is now her ghostly roommate. She has to fake breathing and endure daytime hours to avoid coming out of the coffin to her family. She’s forced to forgo her favorite down-home Southern cooking for bags of O negative. Her relationship with her sexy, mercurial vampire sire keeps running hot and cold. And if all that wasn’t enough, it looks like someone in Half Moon Hollow is trying to frame her for a series of vampire murders. What’s a nice undead girl to do?

 

 

My Review

What did you like about this audio book. I love Vampire stories and I love to laugh and this book offers plenty of both. Jane Jameson will have you in hysterics all the way through but at the same time there is a fabulous story.

 

Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does she achieve this? Molly Harper has created a fabulous cast of characters that work so well together. The story is strong and the humour doesn’t detract from the brilliantly written story in any way.

Do you have any additional comments?

There are 4 books in the Nice Girls series and several in the spin off Half Moon Hollow series The mixture of Molly Harper and the narrator Amanda Ronconi are a perfect pairing. Ronconi narrates these books perfectly. She has amazing comedic timing, a huge talent for identifying the different characters and a natural skill for well flowing story telling.

  1. I have a love/hate relationship with audiobooks. I keep trying them even though my attention span is that of Finding Dori. I will say, I recently found I can pay attention while driving. So all my audiobook listening is only limited to car rides.

  2. I have yet to listen to an audiobook, I’ve started a few times but never have time to finish. I’m pretty old school with my actual page turning books equipped with zero technology lol. These recommendations sound amazing though, I may have to try one. Thank you for the great reviews.
