    I have a unique problem. I’m reading the Maternal Instincts Mysteries. I was expected to start reading Deathly Rattle. However, the cover is Deathly Rattle, but the inside is A first date with death. How, do I get the corrected book? Sincerely Genie Crownover PS I order my books from Amazon.

    • Graeme: 1 year ago

      I would contact Amazon.

    I have listened to everything that they have on Audible. When will new books come out on there.
    Maternal Instincts, A love or money, roundup Crew, and Iwitch mystery I am on now. I am not sure about this one yet but really love the others.

    • Liz Sayer: 3 years ago

      I agree! It seems that Diana Orgain has too many series going at once. It is hard to start a series and then wait forever for the new book. I love the Iwitch series Third times a crime series and am waiting for the new book sequels to come out. She is a really good writer and it is a shame and disappointing not to get the sequels to a lot of these series out in a timely manner if at all.
