Audio: Murder at the Brightwell by Ashley Weaver @AshleyCWeaver  @billiefb @Dreamscapeaudio #LoveAudiobooks

I’ve been on an historical mystery binge for the past several months.  When selecting a new book, I look for an interesting plot, a believable female lead, and a little romance.  So when the library app kindly suggested Murder at the Brightwell as a cozy, between-the-wars mystery I might enjoy reading next, I did two […]

‘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 […]

A Curious Beginning by Deanna Raybourn @deannaraybourn #AngeleMasters @recordedbooks #LoveAudiobooks

A Curious Beginning by Deanna Raybourn @deannaraybourn #AngeleMasters  @recordedbooks #LoveAudiobooks

I am not embarrassed to admit a well-designed cover is sometimes the deciding factor in my book selection.  And no, it’s not always a naked, male torso either.  In looking at a list of historical romantic suspense, my attention was captured by the flourishing text and simple silhouettes of A Curious Beginning by Deanna Raybourn.  […]

Weight Expectations by ME Carter is the 2nd installment in the Cipher Office series.  It’s another Smartypants Romance, the series of books written by professional authors in the Penny Reid-verse.  I am a huge fan of Penny Reid and her characters, but have had mixed feelings about the Smartypants books I’ve read.  Weight Expectations is […]

Audio: A Stroke of Malice by Anna Lee Huber @AnnaLeeHuber #HeatherWilds  @TantorAudio  #LoveAudiobooks

Intelligent and talented outcast solves mysteries with the help of handsome sidekick.  It’s a plot device that appeals to my puzzle-loving brain and non-conformist heart.  Add the escapism of a different time period and I’m completely sold.  Anna Lee Huber elegantly blends historical romance with suspense in A Stroke of Malice, the 8th installment of […]

  Bone Crossed is the fourth installment of the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs.  I feel compelled to mention this, in case you started the read-along and just motored through the entire Mercyverse without stopping because it is simply that good.  The story lines are interesting and informative and each book builds on the […]
