Now You May Weepby 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 Floodby 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 orgies...you can see them on the sidebar.
Where's the eggnog?
