🎧 A Talent for Murder by Peter Swanson @PeterSwanson3 #KeithSzarabaijka #KathleenEarly @sophieamoss @stephengraybill @SaskiaAudio @grahamhalstead  ‏‏@HarperAudio #LoveAudiobooks #JIAM‏

A Talent for Murder is the third in the Henry Kimball / Lily Kintner series.  The Kind Worth Saving is the second in the series.  I actually got the first book The Kind Worth Killing at the library. Those two books are almost 8 years apart.  Now it seems we have an odd series with […]

🎧 The Rom-commers by Katherine Center @katherinecenter @PattiMurin @StMartinsPress @MacMillanAudio #LoveAudiobooks #JIAM

The Rom-commers has a premise which is Hollywood and over the top in aspects, but it was a lot of fun.  Emma is such a pure, passionate character. She is stellar at everything from her writing, to her teaching, to her care for her father and sister.  Emma has also been excellent at protecting herself […]

Sunrise Cove series books are completely standalones, so you could read them in any order.  The beautiful setting is the only thing in common.  I don’t think the town is too big so I don’t know why none of these folks know each other.  lol Anna and Owen, like many others in the series, have […]

🎧 Check & Mate by Ali Hazelwood @EverSoAli @KarissaVacker @BerkleyRomance @BerkleyPub @PRHAudio #LoveAudiobooks #JIAM

Ali Hazelwood is a genius when it comes to the Smart Romance genre.  She doesn’t simply pay lip service to her subject, such as with a bio-physicist heroine that never actually does anything bio-physicist-y (yup, that is a word).  The science she writes about is always an integral part of the story and the characters […]

I loved the continuation with the scientific aspects of learning about the Neighbors and August learning about the plants and animals on Earth.  We are seeing things from Renee’s point of view, which is naturally more focused on the scientific wonder of this opportunity. We start to learn more about the political and business thoughts.  […]

🎧 The Killings of Kingfisher Hill by Sophie Hannah @sophiehannahCB1 #JulianRhind-Tutt @HarperAudio #LoveAudiobooks  @sophiarose1816 #JIAM

Poirot and Catchpool return for one of their bizarrest cases yet.  They get one confession of murder and one confession that she thinks she’ll be murdered, all in one coach bus trip- and that’s before they reach the destination of their new case to investigate a murder and get the accused declared innocent. I’ve said […]

I have enjoyed the new style this author has written for the past years, probably a decade.  They are not romances but Life Fiction.  The characters are more realistic and well developed along with all those around them, their families and friends.  The settings and emotional situations are also well built for a deep connection. […]

🎧 In Our Stars by Jack Campbell #JackCampbell @aemmes #TimFannon  @AceRocBooks @berkleypub @recordedbooks #LoveAudiobooks

I’m a big fan of this author’s military / political space opera with the Lost Fleet.  In Our Stars has some of that feel but is more in the Science Fiction Romance genre which felt weird. The romance was not typical to a romance novel.  Other aspects were more similar with politics, aliens, and inexplicable […]

I loved the setup of the main character, her career and family.  The world building was handled well. Sloan is an only, adopted child of two dentists.  She has gone into medicine focusing on forensic pathology.   She has qualified for a prestigious 2 year training program.   In addition to autopsies, all the students are given […]
