The annual Historical Romance Writers of the World convention in New York City is calling to Jacqueline Kirby, a Nebraska librarian who desperately desires some excitement. But all is not love and kisses at this august gathering of starry-eyed eccentrics and sentimental scribes. As far as Jacqueline is concerned, the sudden "natural" death of a gossip columnist seems anything but. And when she's approached by a popular genre star who fears for her own life, the resourceful Ms. Kirby quickly goes back to a sleuth. There's a sinister scenario being penned at this purple prose congregation. And when jealousy and passion are released from the boundaries of the printed page, the result can be murder.

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.
