Audio: Crime Beat Tokyo – San Francisco – LA by AC Fuller @ACFullerAuthor @esuttonsmith @TantorAudio #LoveAudiobooks

Somehow, I thought with the title, The Crime Beat, I would be getting a true crime story.  The genre is mystery / thriller and it is fiction.  The main characters are an unlikely duo.  Jane Cole is a crime beat reporter who is a widow.  Rob Warren is a former marine, cop and now tracking […]

Audio: My Best Friend’s Exorcism by Grady Hendrix @grady_hendrix @zwooman @BlackstoneAudio #LoveAudiobooks

‘All skate, change directions.’  ‘Just Say No.’  ‘Gag me with a spoon.’  If you know what these sayings mean, or better yet, if you’ve actually heard them used not-ironically, I invite you to flash back to the eighties by reading My Best Friend’s Exorcism by Grady Hendrix.  This is a nostalgia-filled horror novel, which sounds […]

Audio: When No One is Watching by Alyssa Cole @AlyssaColeLit  #SusanDalian @jayaaseng @HarperAduio #LoveAudiobooks

This is my first experience with this author, but it is also her first mystery / suspense/ thriller which is one of my favorite genres. When No One is Watching is creepy and a bit horrifying but I think it is because a lot of the story is realistic. Sadly, those with money or positions […]

Audio: Igniting Darkness by Robin LaFevers @RLLaFevers #SuzyJackson #AmandaLeighCobb #EvaKaminsky #BrianMunn #LoveAudiobooks

Igniting Darkness is the final book in the duology featuring primarily Sybella and Genevieve, but also Maraud. It is a continuation of the story begun in Courting Darkness, which definitely should be read first.  Really the two books make a complete story with the main characters being much the same, and many of the plots unfinished […]

Audio: Yours to Keep by Lauren Layne @_LaurenLayne @alexcendese #SamanthaMartin‏ #BrillianceAudio  #LoveAudiobooks

Lauren Layne does the rom-com-chick-lit up right.  She usually brings flirty fun to the table and builds characters and situations you can root for.  The Man of the Year series is one of the few she has written that so far, where characters between books have had no crossover interactions and so even though Yours […]

Series on Saturday: Chicago @longshotauthor @SaraParetsky @chloeneill @juljames @KittyMeader @KarenRoseBooks #Giveaway

This is a new feature I developed where each month we will look at our favorite – the best – series in a genre or topic. The topic here, by my definition,  is a series in a Chicago setting.    These are the ones which came to mind.  I enjoyed some more than others.   The […]
