“I was thrilled to audition and be given the opportunity to narrate The Widow’s Redeemer and also Fool me Twice both written by Philippa Jane Keyworth for Madison Street Publishing. I loved the Georgette Heyer Regency romances which I read when younger and love the genre. Pip’s books transport you back to that wonderful era and I have loved narrating these stories.”

This was such a wonderful audiobook! I loved the narration so much! It made me feel as if I were right there in that time with the characters, it made me imagine exactly their reaction and the tone used to express the sarcasm, the enthusiasm or sadness was perfect!

Since we got this out in the open, let’s get into the actual story. Letty Burton has had a short, but difficult, marriage. Her husband died and left her with a huge amount of debt and scares that are both visible, but also only marks on her heart. Violence and offence predominated in her years as a wife. Now a poor widow back in London, she tries to find peace and friendship with the help of her mother in law. She meets the good Major Deveril and his old-time friend Viscount Beauford, as well as young Sophie. But the Viscount is the one that intrigues her the most. He provokes her, he makes her feel uncomfortable and safe at the same time. On the other hand, the Viscount is surprised by the quick mind and modesty of our widow. His heart is as broken as hers and the last thing on his mind is to get close to another woman.

Town gossip, reputation, proper behavior and importance of social status and social appearances are very important. The author did a very good job in describing the customs and the talks of the time. I liked as well the letters between Letty and her friends all throughout the book and at the end.

All in all, this was a lovely book with an exceptional narration. I would have given it 5 stars if it were not for the rushed ending. I would have wanted more from our couple and I would have wanted to see their feelings bloom more.

Audiobook Review: Takeout Chef

Author: Gaby Cabezut

Narrators: Rachel Mazz

Length: 7 hours 55 minutes

Publisher: Hachette Audio

Released: Sep. 19, 2017

Jessica Summers works all day to support her family. Her social life consists of having dinner in front of the television watching Chef Tom’s magical hands prepare foods. Being a chef is her lifelong dream, but since her mom passed away, being there for her brother and helping ease the burden for her quirky grandmother are her priority.

Her life takes an unexpected turn when her brother signs her up in an experimental program to help young delinquents. Chef Tom Simmons and Chef Bryan Sullen head the project, and, when they meet, Jessie is hoping to get a spot in the school – despite her noncriminal record – not to find a new job. Yet Tom is in desperate need of a new assistant, and Jessie is the perfect fit.

Bryan has a rough facade. He’s obnoxious and bossy but shows moments of kindness, too. Their romance blossoms between remaking messy soufflés and baking crispy croissants. When they have plans to start dating, Bryan has an emergency and shuts down on Jessie.

When Bryan comes back, Jesse must decide to follow her heart and give the man she loves a chance to open up or let him go for good.

Ok, let me start with the positives (no need for story-telling, as the blurb is quite detailed).

I liked the relationship between characters, even if some were not very much insisted upon. We have Jessie and her teenage brother living together with their grandmother. They are the perfect picture for a brother and sister relationship – they argue, they joke around, but they are always there for each other. Also, their non-conformist grandmother is the spice of the family. They are so sweet and cute together! Then we move on to the friendships formed during the cooking classes. Hose were also very well created, I appreciated all the interactions between our main character and her new friends.

There is a beautiful atmosphere overall in this book. It gave me that cozy feeling that one should have when reading romance novels. So the writing reached its purpose. The narration was also good, the narrator did a very good job in keeping the accent of the British characters and as well she captured the emotions beautifully.

Now I am not quite comfortable with how the romance was built, mainly because some moments were a little bit forced, especially in the end. There is uncertainty between Jessie and Bryan and they are afraid of starting something. They are afraid of having a serious conversation and take decisions. Bryan is taking seriously his job as a teacher for those with low chances of success in life and this is an honorable thing to do, Jessie is trying to deserve the job she received and takes the classes seriously. If the first part of the book is more focused on knowing the characters and the familiar ties or friendships, the second part is more focused on the romance between Jessie and Bryan.

All in all, I liked it, even if I wanted more from the romance aspect. The author’s focus on the relationships is very much appreciated and as well the narration. I did enjoy my time with “Takeout Chef”, I laughed a lot and spent some relaxing time. 3.5 Stars (rounded to 4) J

Release date: Jul. 28, 2017

If someone took everything you live for, how far would you go to get it back? When a faulty time machine deposits Diego at the top of a pine tree, he knows he’s in the wrong place – but has no idea he’s in the wrong time. Naked and shivering in the chilly mountain air, he attempts to climb down, but slips, whacks his head, and falls into oblivion. He wakes up inside a darkened room, crippled and disheartened, and must come to grips with the realization that he is marooned in a bleak alternate future. In this universe, what remains of the human race is trapped inside a handful of aging biodomes. With his mission failed, his world destroyed, and the one woman he loves dead, he can find no reason to go on living. But Lani, the emotionally scarred doctor who finds him, refuses to let him give up, and as Diego heals, their relationship becomes complicated. He struggles to let go of the past, but is unable to get Isabel out of his head or his heart. Just when it seems he may be able to find some measure of happiness in a world teetering on the edge of extinction, another note arrives from the future: Isabel is alive – but not for long.

 

AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR D. L. ORTON lives in the Rocky Mountains where she and her husband are raising three boys, a golden retriever, two Siberian cats, and an extremely long-lived Triops.

Well, well, what do we have here? I have no clue. This series is so complicated! When I started book 2 I thought I missed something. We get to see what happened to Diego after/during the events in book 1.

He is … lost in time. He is someplace else, in a universe where he and Isabel never get together at all. The world is completely different, even if the outcome is the same. We get to see some of the characters in book 1, with their new lives. We see Diego struggling with loosing Isabel and how he tries to be part of this new world. It is a completely different point of view from the first book, but at some point, the stories come together.

Now, I liked it maybe a little better than “Crossing in Time”, probably because the complicated stuff happened in the first installment. In this universe, Diego already knows what he has to do, just needs to find the beginning of it all. But where is Isabel? Stick around to find out!

There are fewer things I did not like about it. One of them is the whole sex thing. Children in this universe were so eager to start their activities. I know the population was diminishing and reproduction was of the essence, but it still felt too much. Also, I wanted Diego to be more focused on getting back home or finding Isabel. He seems too resigned, too less preoccupied of what happened to his world.

The narration was exceptional, as usual, when it comes to Noah Michael Levine and Erin deWard. I would not expect anything less. Their interpretation definitely helps enhance the experience. What is new, in comparison to book 1, is Erin’s interpretation of Lani and her speech problem. She did it beautifully and expressed her fears very well.

So 4 out of 5 stars for “Lost Time” and I am looking forward to what’s next.  Hope you’ll like it too!

Released: Mar. 30, 2018

Genre: Fantasy

Join Nara and Mykel on a journey through the Great Land….

Fifteen-year-old Nara Dall has never been good at keeping secrets. Yet it seems that her life has been filled with them, from the ugly scar on her back to the strange powers she possesses. Her mysterious adoptive father refuses to say anything about her origins, and soon, she and her best friend must attend the announcement ceremony, in which youths are tested for a magical gift.

A gifted youth has not been announced in the poor village of Dimmitt for decades. When Nara uncovers the reason, she uses her own powers to make things right. The decision sets her and her friend on a path of danger, discovery, and a search for the divine. In the process, she learns the truth about herself and uncovers the biggest secret of all: the power of broken people.

Give me powers, hive me heroes with magical abilities, give me a magic system and I am so down for a book! So yes, I liked it and quite a lot actually. I would have wanted a bit more, I would have wanted more attention to details but, there are so many great aspects to this book!

Let me start with the cover, because I think it’s great and it spoils a little how cool the main character is! Then we have the magic system which I think is awesome! Even if there are a few “common” items like someone trying to keep Nara safe or her not knowing her past and all that, these were so well introduced in the plot. I liked also her friendship with Mykel and could not stop to wonder if/when it will become something more.

We have twins who are opposites and many twists in the story, but with all these elements that grabbed my attention, my only complaint is the predictability of some situations. Indeed, it did not ruin my experience. More so since the things are not always what they seemed. Except this item, I have no other bad things to say about “looking for Dei”.

As for the narration, I liked it too. It “checked out” all the points on my list that make a great audiobook. I felt the narration, I could distinguish between the characters and I liked Tanya Eby’s voice very much.

4 out of 5 stars for “Looking for Dei” and I hope you’ll give it a try. It’s worth it! Enjoy!

Audiobook Review: Woven

Author: Bree Moore

Narrators: Rebecca McKernan

Length: 13 hours 49 minutes

Publisher: Books by Bree, LLC

Released: Mar. 28, 2018

Genre: Epic Fantasy

For 30 years, Elaina has sat in her tower, fingers caught in an eternal dance, cursed to weave the tapestry of life on her loom. Bound by an enchanted mirror whose magic shows her the distant lives of the people of Camelot, she must forever watch a land which remains ever beyond her reach. Elaina despairs that she will ever experience more than just the shadows of life, until one day, a face appears in the mirror that will change her life, and possibly her fate, forever.

Guinevere is losing her mind. When a severe injury to her head nearly kills her and awakens alternate personalities suppressed from her past, Guinevere learns that one of them is plotting with a knight of the round table to murder King Arthur and take control of Camelot. In the midst of war, Guinevere fights to save both her own life and the man she loves, each day coming closer to succumbing to the violent personalities within her.

Inspired by Arthurian legend and Lord Alfred Tennyson’s ballad, “The Lady of Shalott”, Woven spins a tale of two women who must risk everything to save those they love most into an epic of enchantment, love, and madness.

Bree Moore has been writing fantasy since the fourth grade. She lives in Ogden, is wife to an amazing husband, and the mother of four children. She writes fantasy novels between doling out cheerios and folding laundry. In real-life, Bree works as a birth doula, attending women in pregnancy and labor, which is huge inspiration for her writing. Bree loves shopping for groceries like other women like shopping for shoes (no, seriously), movies that make her cry, and Celtic music. She likes both her chocolate and her novels dark.

“Woven” is Bree’s first published novel, the start of what she intends to be an epic writing career.

Narrator Bio

Born in the eighties with her formative years in the nineties, Rebecca’s taste in music and fashion never really had a chance. Fortunately, you can’t tell these things from her writing or voice-over work. HEr first novel, Trespasser, is as dark as her neon is bright, and you’d never guess from hearing her that she’s narrating science fiction in nothing but unicorn pants. Currently residing in London, Rebecca is passionate about travel, and has a good – albeit sometimes dubious – ear for accents. She graduated from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama with a degree in something or other, has a background in musical theatre, a past career in burlesque, and is a classically trained opera singer. Oh, and she likes greyhounds. And wine.

I love legends, particulary King Arthur and his knights! So how can I not appreciate the amont of historical aspects in Bree Moore’s book?  I loved every page and I loved our main characters! It is a story in which there are only stron women and men that rely on them to keep them together.

On one hand we have Elaina (the Lady of Shalott), imprisoned and cursed to weave the destinies in a tower, far from the eyes of the many. She cannot look out, she cannot hope to be saved, she must not have contact with other people or else she may die. She never loses hope of escaping her faith. She wishes her lover would come and save her but years pass and this never happens. What’s more, her memories seem to be taken away. Until one day, when a boy dares to enter the tower and vows to help her.

In some other part of the kingdom, Lady Guinevere prepares for her wedding to King Arthur. An unpolished lady, with a bigger mouth than a queen should have, but with a strong character and an innocent heart. Later in the story, she faces her attraction to the king but as well a multiple personality disorder.

These two legends and many more are intertwined into this beautiful book. To my shame, I did not know much about Lady of Shalott, but Bree Moore pushed me to do a bit of research. She has altered here and there some elements, but kept to the basics. Without detailing too much, I liked the book and the combination between the two women and how their stories became united.

The narration was beautiful. Rebecca McKernan’s accent and her intonation, her desperation and hope were the highlights of my experience with “Woven”.

All in all, I loved every page and I will cherish this book as it combines very well history with fantasy, myths with love and drama. You should give it a try! Happy reading/listening!

Give me a story about witches, put some love inside and top it all with a dose of mystery and I am hooked. That’s a success recipe for me (I can think of a few other “ingredients” but don’t apply for this story at the moment).

“Lobster Cove” series starts pretty good. We have a witch trying to settle into her new home, plan for future and fall in love. But who would have thought that she and her new partner would both harbor secrets. The relationship between Pepper and Lathen is intense and their connection is very well captured. The hero in him starts acting once Pepper’s legacy is in danger. Let’s see if they manage to combine their abilities and solve the conflict J

Normally, I would be more than happy to brag about the magic and all that. However, I feel that in case of “A Witch’s Journey” the accent was more on the romance than on the actual magic. Yes, the plot is around that, but I would have wanted more action and more danger. There are many elements thrown in there, but not linked well enough and angles that could have been better explored.

The narration was excellent. Kate Tyler’s talent at disguising her voice and put feelings in all the lines made me enjoy the book even more. I liked her voice and, most importantly, I liked the fact that I could know, from the tone of her voice, who was talking. He is a great narrator indeed!

All in all, I’m giving the story 3.5 stars, rounded to 4, for a great narration. The book is great for fans of love and witches, but from action point of view, there is a potential that is yet to be explored. Looking forward for the next books. Enjoy J

Book Review: Crossing in Time

Author: D.L. Orton

Narrators: Noah Michael Levine and Erin deWard

Length: 10 hours 17 minutes

Publisher: Rocky Mountain Press⎮2015

Genre: Science Fiction, Romance

Series: Between Two Evils, Books 1

Release date: Oct. 7, 2015

If someone took everything you live for, how far would you go to get it back?

When offered a one-way trip to the past, Isabel sacrifices everything for a chance to change the rapidly deteriorating present – and see her murdered lover one last time. When she arrives 20 years in the past, buck naked and mortally wounded, she has 24 hours to convince a stunned but enraptured 19-year-old to change their future. Definitely easier said than done, as success means losing him to a brainy, smart-mouthed bombshell (her younger self), and that’s a heart breaker, save the world or not.

This offbeat tale is about falling madly in love when one is too cynical for such things, letting go of pessimism when it’s the last life jacket on a sinking ship, and racing against the clock when one doesn’t have the proper footwear. It’s a coming-of-age story for old fogeys, a how-to-make-love guide for diehard celibates, and a laugh-out-loud tragedy with a hopeful twist.

 

AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR D. L. ORTON lives in the Rocky Mountains where she and her husband are raising three boys, a golden retriever, two Siberian cats, and an extremely long-lived Triops.

In her spare time, she’s building a time machine so that someone can go back and do the laundry.

Here are so many exceptional thing s about this story that it’s hard to capture all of them in a short review. So I’m going to lay down just some of the aspects that I believe are interesting and that can capture your attention.

“Crossing in Time” is a combination of many elements. We have love that can withstand time and while that, the world is collapsing. Yup, collapsing. Too many things happen in the same time – bombs, invasions, Ebola and with all these, two people find a way to love each other over and over again. In the beginning I was not very convinced about their relationship, since Isabel and Diego did not have the best start ever as a couple. Over time, they become close again even if the world has other plans.

Do you thing the combination between love, time travel and world destruction is too much? Well, it can be, sometimes. I felt a little overwhelmed of the many things happening and at some point it was hard to consider it as one story.  I was experiencing two different things. On one hand, we have the specialist analyzing facts and trying to understand what’s happening, and on the other hand we have a couple who’s just trying to enjoy their life together.

Since I had the privilege to enjoy the book in audio format, the narration was fabulous. Noah Michael Levine and Erin deWard bring characters to life. They share the joy and the pain in such a vivid way. They are perfect when narrating books together. I’ve heard them before and now I was even more impressed since one character has a Spanish accent and there is another one which sounds British. They are so, so incredible!

All in all, this is a great book, with perfect narrators and it is a story for everyone. It has mystery, romance, conspiracy and twists. 4 stars from my end! Happy Reading!
