Grover Gardner is one of the pioneers of spoken word audio, and also one of the most prolific. He's a finalist this year in the Audie Awards (the audiobook industry's Oscar equivalent) with HOUNDED, an amusing mystery by David Rosenfelt, who has penned an entire series of dog related detective novels featuring Andy Carpenter. If it wins in Best Mystery category, it wouldn't be the first time for the Rosenfelt/Gardner duo. This time we have a courtroom drama featuring drugs, the setup of a friend for murder, and a twist ending, all delivered with wit and charm. It's a cosy mystery narrated with the unerring authority and believability of experience that will appeal to both men and women, while A TOUCH OF STARDUST by Kate Alcott will enthrall historical fiction lovers, as the protagonist is employed as publicist for Carole Lombard during her romance with Clark Gable on the filming of Gone with the Wind. Actress Cassandra Campbell narrates that intriguing tale of old Hollywood.
