The Perfect Package - Great book, great narration.
"Die for Love" is a treat, with great narration supplied by Grace Conlin. Because I'm an Amelia Peabody fan, it took me a while to venture out into the other books by Elizabeth Peters, but I'm glad I did. "Die for Love" takes place at a Romance Writers' convention, and Peters taps into the high level of absurdity available in that situation. All of Peters' protagonists are gusty, self-assured women who don't hesitate to pursue whichever objective might capture their curiosity, and Jacqueline Kirby is no different. She is outrageous, outspoken, and delightful, and the cast of supporting characters are perfect foils for her pursuit of truth, justice, and a good meal (paid for by someone else).
I'm partial to Barbara Rosenblat's narrations of Elizabeth Peters' work, but Grace Conlin does a capable job, capturing Kirby's witticisms and sarcasm. I thoroughly enjoyed the listening experience and recommend it!

Audible, please get the Rosenblat version
Elizabeth Peters is at her funny, charming best -- but the narration is terribly disappointing, especially when so many of Peter's books are read by Barbara Rosenblat!
Audible needs to get the whole Kirby series with Barbara Rosenblat as narrator.
