Wednesday Earplugs- the Weekly audios- Dec 16th

Here's the weekly wrap-up of the wonderful ear reading I've been doing. If you haven't yet indulged in this pleasure, I hope you take some time during the upcoming year to try it.

Now You May Weep
by Deborah Crombie
narrated by Michael Deehy

A well plotted mystery featuring Gemma James and Duncan Kincaid.  Gemma goes off on a 'cooking holiday' with her friend Hazel, who, unbeknownst to Gemma is secretly working up toward an assignation with an old lover.  When lover-boy is murdered, Gemma discovers the body and then must bite her tongue and sit back while local police handle the case.  The characters in this delightful story are richly done.  There are motivations and opportunities aplenty so the reader is presented with several possibilities for who dunit...The audio was particularly charming.  Narrator Michael Deehy does an outstanding job with lush Scots accents, stirring recitations of the poetry that opens each chapter, and a clear easy to listen to style. 

I'm heading right to the library for more of this series..

The Johnstown Flood
by David McCullough
narrated by Ed Herrman

This was another audio I listened to these past couple days as I baked cookies and took a long car ride to an Army-Navy football game party (GREAT GAME!!!).
It was so good, it deserved a full review which I posted yesterday.


I have several great ones on deck for the coming busy wrapping, baking, tree trimming can see them on the sidebar. 

Where's the eggnog?

  1. I envy your trip to the Army-Navy game. When the cadets and midshipmen march in, it gives me goosebumps. This year we had to watch on TV. Go Navy! We love to go to games in Annapolis too. The city is my kind of place and the games are special.


Welcome, thanks for stopping by. Now that you've heard our two cents, perhaps you have a few pennies to throw into the discussion. Due to a bunch more anonymous spam getting through, I've had to disallow anonymous comments. I try to respond to all comments posing a question, but may not always get to you right away.
