🎧 The Wayward Prince by Leonard Goldberg #LeonardGoldberg @SteveWestActor @MacmillanAudio #LoveAudiobooks

I have always loved Sherlock Holmes and  The Daughter of Sherlock Holmes Mysteries series lets me bask in that enjoyment. I really enjoy all the snart investigations and the setting in England. Plus the series is narrated by STEVE WEST. The excitement begins with the abduction of Prince Harry. Then we have the backstreet abortions. […]

🎧 Welcome to Beach Town by Susan Wiggs @susanwiggs @brit_pressley @avonbooks @WmMorrowBooks @HarperAudio @LoveAudiobooks #JIAM

This author continues to impress me with her life fiction with characters who struggle and grow and love, where everything does not go smoothly and joy can be found in unexpected places.  These realistic and imperfect characters are so easy to love. The setup is classic with the haves and have nots at a elite […]

🎧 Rich Waters by Robert Bailey @rbaileybooks @joeknezevich #BrillianceAudio #LoveAudiobooks #JIAM #KindleUnlimited🎧

Rich Waters is the second book in the Jason Rich series. I got the first book Rich Blood as a first read from Prime. The books are available in Kindle Unlimited including audio. I would read the series in order for both the character developments and the changing issues in the small Alabama community. Jason […]

🎧 Where Ivy Dares to Grow by Marielle Thompson #MarielleThompson @npnarrates @TantorAudio #LoveAudiobooks #JIAM #KindleUnlimited @SnyderBridge4

Where Ivy Dares to Grow is an interesting and meandering standalone featuring a unreliable narrator.  Saoirse is stuck at a beautiful estate to be with her fiancé as his mother spends her last days on earth. The estate seems almost haunted and alive with history and Saoirse is swept away in a diary she found, […]

Drafted is a fluffy and mostly fun story.  It is the first in the Para-Military Recruiter series featuring a human that accidentally ends up as a recruiter in the paranormal world.   Julie might be human but soon finds out, after eating some magic mushrooms, she can see people of the paranormal community. Now she has […]

🎧 The Sweetheart List by Jill Shalvis @JillShalvis @andi_arndt @WmMorrowBooks @avonbooks ‏ @HarperAudio #LOVEAUDIOBOOKS #JIAM

I was more than ready to continue with the Sunrise Cove series; the books are completely standalones.  The setting is inspiring and beautiful.   Harper comes to town, where she was last happy as a child with her mother, to open a bakery and start fresh.  Ivy is a runaway teen who comes to town for […]

🎧 Tempt Me by Julie Cooper #JulieCooper @bellowsaudio  #JIAM #LoveAudiobooks #KindleUnlimited  @sophiarose1816

Hidden in plain sight right alongside the human world of Regency England is a darker, edgier shadow world of powerful vampires and Jane Austen’s classic gets a blood infusion.  A Pride & Prejudice Vampire Romance variation?  I’m game. Tempt Me opens with Fitzwilliam Darcy, Master vampire on the hunt for a rogue vampire, Wickham, who […]

🎧 Mists of the Highlands by Miranda Martin @imMirandaMartin @SennAnnis @TantorAudio #LoveAudiobooks #JIAM @SnyderBridge4

🎧 Mists of the Highlands by Miranda Martin @imMirandaMartin @SennAnnis @TantorAudio #LoveAudiobooks #JIAM @SnyderBridge4

Mists of the Highlands is the first book of the Fae Highlanders series which describes itself as a cross between Outlander and Dark Fever, both books I loved.  I have wanted to capture the magic I felt when reading Outlander and hoped this new series would scratch that itch.  I love the concept of going […]

🎧 Love Theoretically by Ali Hazelwood @EverSoAli @tplummer76 @BerkleyRomance @BerkleyPub @PRHAudio #LoveAudiobooks #JIAM

I’m all in for a stem world. The academics and politics fascinate me.  Ok, the misogyny and treatment of women also infuriates me.  The world in Love, Theoretically,  is connected to some of the author’s other books, which was only recognizable in a very brief mention near the end. Elsie loves her work and she […]

🎧  Elantris by Brandon Sanderson @BrandSanderson #JackGarrett @RecordedBooks #LoveAudiobooks #JIAM @4saintjude

Epic fantasy, by definition, should be epic.  It typically involves a grand and sweeping narrative that spans a vast world with many characters, cultures, and conflicts.  I find that they are often stories that stay with me forever.  That might be good, seeing as they usually require a huge investment in time (and sometimes money, […]
