🎧 Westward the Tide by Louis L’Amour #LouisL'Amour @petkoff @kakuralasombey @DanJohnMiller @PenguinAudio @sophiarose1816 #LoveAudiobooks

Westward the Tide has the distinction of being Louis L’Amour’s first full-length novel.  Everything he wrote previously was published as short stories or serials in magazines.  And, oddly, it was released in the UK first and didn’t publish in the US until 1977.  Traversing parts of the Dakotas, Montana, and Wyoming of the 1870’s, this […]

🎧 A Christmas Legacy by Anne Perry @AnnePerryWriter #JennySterlin @randomhouse @RecordedBooks #LoveAudiobooks #HoHoHoRAT2022

I really enjoy the historical mystery series by this author and she has multiple series.  For the HoHoHo Read-athon, I listened to the newest Christmas story.  Goodreads doesn’t consider it a series, but I think of it that way.  All of the Christmas stories are a bit shorter, about a half book size but longer than […]

Was anyone else ever curious about those eight years spent apart for Jane Austen’s second chance romance pair in Persuasion?  Or maybe what happened next for them and the other characters?  How about their time before the big break up?  A new to me author, Lyndsay Constable answers all those questions with her heartwarming, reflective […]

I love this Wrexford & Sloane series so much. The main characters are building a found family with courage, compassion, and cleverness. I am tickled by how clever it is.  They support and encourage each other’s strengths and protect each other’s weaknesses.   There is plenty of great science, mathematics and art to fill their imaginations. […]

🎧 An Unexpected Peril by Deanna Raybourn @deannaraybourn #AngeleMasters @RecordedBooks #LoveAudiobooks

The Veronica Speedwell series is very much a Sherlock Holmish mystery and while An Unexpected Peril is again a mystery, this time Veronica spends more time pretending to be someone she is not, than solving a mystery. Veronica, Lepidopterist by trade, is no stranger to royalty since she is the illegitimate (or legitimate sort of […]
