Lily and the Octopus: A Man and His Dog

An audiobook best appreciated by knowing very little about the plot before starting.

AudioFile goes behind the mic with Michael Urie as he tells us more about LILY AND THE OCTOPUS. We love Michael’s clear connection to this audiobook. Listeners need know only that Steven Rowley’s debut is a beautiful love story.

“Steven Rowley has created something so true, so real.”—Michael Urie

We loved the title (and jacket art) even before we heard Michael Urie’s performance. Now that we have, we want to share–Michael’s heartfelt comments and his brilliant connection to the performance. You can also listen to a sound clip and read our full review HERE.

Mystery Monday: Lady Cop Makes Trouble

Not exactly a cozy, but a historical mystery worth your listening time.

Set in pre-WWI New Jersey and New York, Constance Kopp’s appointment as a deputy sheriff is challenged, and the spirited Kopp sisters are again making their own way as crime fighters.

Christina Moore’s narration continues to shine in this sequel to GIRL WAITS WITH GUN. Moore captures Constance’s personality perfectly, at times vulnerable, but more often a strong and determined turn of the century woman who feels she has finally found her calling.
