🎧 The Village by Caroline Mitchell @Caroline_writes  @EKNOWELDEN #BrillianceAudio #LoveAudiobooks #KindleUnlimited

I have read another series by this author and somehow didn’t pay very much attention to the blurb, thinking this would be a police procedural. The Village is much more a psychological suspense.  Naomi, as a crime journalist, wants to know what happened to a family and buys the home where they disappeared.  Her new […]

One of my readers recommended this author and a different series of theirs.  PJ Tracy is actually a mother-daughter team, but it looks like now the daughter is the one writing this newer  Detective Margaret Nolan series.  When I saw Desolation Canyon, it was only the second in the series. I grabbed the first book […]

🎧 Something to Hide by Elizabeth George @lynleymysteries ‏@SimVan ‏@PRHAudio #LoveAudiobooks #COYER‏

It was so good to get back to the Inspector Lynley series which I started nearly 30 years ago. I’ve mostly read them but I’ve listened to the last few.  The narrators are exceptional and Simon Vance does well with Something to Hide. I had a bit of trouble with the very start when all the […]

🎧 The Last House on the Street by Diane Chamberlain @D_Chamberlain @SiriouslySusan @StMartinsPress @MacmillanAudio #LoveAudiobooks

I tried this author’s work for the North Carolina settings.  The books I have read are historical fiction and deal with the aspects of racism and mistreatment of minorities, including women.  The characters are well developed whether they are compassionate and caring or angry bigots. I was in suspense as I waited to see what […]

🎧 The Sorority Murder by Allison Brennan @Allison_Brennan @amymcnarrator @HarlequinAudio @HarperAudio #LoveAudiobooks

I am a fan of Allison Brennan and knew I wanted The Sorority Murder as soon as I heard about it. The main characters are very well developed and I liked and understood them.  They had their own flaws but were mostly good people.  The “villain” was less well developed which made the character easy […]

Wow.  I always enjoy this author.  I found the mystery aspects to be elusive and twisty.  There are a couple storylines which eventually connect and intertwine later. I liked the characters well enough, although they are not the people I would meet in my everyday life.  I understood and empathized with their feelings.  Avery was […]
