The Uncharted Flight of Olivia West by Sara Ackerman @AckermanBooks @HarlequinBooks  #MIRA @sophiarose1816

Dual timeline historical fiction involving family secrets for one woman in 1987 and another woman grits her way into the all-male world of 1927 aviation and a race of a lifetime. The Uncharted Flight of Olivia West fired my cylinders and had me going full throttle through the pages on a voyage of adventure and […]

🎧 The Bright Spot by Jill Shalvis @JillShalvis @andi_arndt @WmMorrowBooks @avonbooks ‏ @HarperAudio #LOVEAUDIOBOOKS

  Sunrise Cove series has the warmest, loveliest people with the worst backgrounds ever.  The books are completely standalones.  I love the farm setting with the rescue animals and the various plants growing.  Luna has created a group of misfits who are loved as family:  her best friend and husband, her gay ex-boyfriend and his […]

🎧 A Christmas Vanishing by Anne Perry @AnnePerryWriter @randomhouse  #ballantinebooks @RecordedBooks #LoveAudiobooks

I’ve always enjoyed the books by this author and for a few years I have been devouring the Christmas series.  I listened to first few through Audible plus, and found more at the library.  I’m not quite finished but the books are unrelated to each other and mostly not heavily connected to the various series.  […]

🎧 Inheritance by Nora Roberts  #NoraRoberts @brit_pressley @MacmillanAudio #LoveAudiobooks @SnyderBridge4

Inheritance, the first book of the  Lost Bride’s Trilogy is right up my ally.  It is a mashup of romance, suspense, some paranormal activity and a mystery two centuries in the making.  In a glorious gothic mansion that just oozes “I’m haunted vibes”, the story starts to take shape on the curse that lives in […]

🎧 A Dangerous Collaboration by Deanna Raybourn @deannaraybourn #AngeleMasters  @recordedbooks #LoveAudiobooks @4saintjude

Veronica Speedwell is a dashing lepidopterist and sometimes crime-fighting sleuth in Victorian England.  She is one of my favorite all time heroines, even when she behaves badly or won’t own up to her feelings.  In A Dangerous Collaboration, the fifth installment in the the Veronica Speedwell Mystery series by Deanna Raybourn, the intrepid Veronica finds herself […]

🎧 Jason Fitger Series by Julie Schumacher #JulieSchumacher #RobertsonDean @PRHAudio #LoveAudiobooks @4saintjude

    The English Experience by Julie Schumacher popped up in my library recommendations.  The funny synopsis and snappy cover art were reason enough to add it to my TBR list.  Upon further investigation, I found it was the third book in the Jason Fitger series; so naturally I had to begin at the beginning […]

Set at the turn of the century, the twentieth century, that is, during the Edwardian era, exciting things are afoot for Lady Hardcastle and Flo in their charming Gloucestershire village- an art show and a bicycle race with enthusiastic treasure hunters at the Grange.  Art thievery and murder make the May Day holiday a memorable […]
