I love to listen to audio books while I paint, do dishes, dust etc. Here are a few of my favorite authors and narrators:
Louise Penny has written a number of wonderful mysteries with the fabulous Chief Inspector Gamache as hero. Ralph Cosham has won the Audie Award for Best Audio Crime Novel in the US for
narrating THE BEAUTIFUL MYSTERY.
Anne Perry has a whole host of books about Inspector and Charlotte Pitt set in Victorian London narrated by Davina Porter.
You don't have to be a kids to enjoy the Harry Potter audio books. Jim Dale is one of the best narrators I've had the pleasure to listen to.
