In the Anglo-Saxon period of post-Roman Britain, before all the British tribes were united or a Battle of Hastings was fought, England was a chessboard of maneuvers to many rulers and even the fledgling beginnings of the Christian faith there.  It was darker times when plague and ambitious royalty could decimate towns and villages.  Shining […]

🎧 Before She Disappeared by Lisa Gardner @LisaGardnerBks ‏@hillatious @BrillianceAudio @LoveAudiobooks

Before She Disappeared is just what I want to read.  There is nothing I didn’t love.   It’s in a favorite genre and has both a private investigator of sorts and police investigations.  The world is well-developed with the grit of ordinary and desperate lives.   The characters also feel so authentic with the nuances of their […]

🎧 Bloodline by Jess Lourey @jesslourey #WhitneyDykhouse  #BrillianceAudio #KindleUnlimted #LoveAudiobooks

I have read many mystery/ thrillers this past year.  I am discovering my preference is police procedurals and political thrillers, more than psychological thrillers.  Bloodline is definitely a psychological thriller.   The setting is Minnesota in areas I know.   There is a well-developed world with large cast of characters who felt real enough.  Anyone who has […]

I’ve really been preferring to read police procedurals lately but you never know exactly what you will get when you try a new (to me) author. I have had some good luck with this genre in Kindle Unlimited titles.  So I read the start of the new Detective Kate Young series.  I’ll definitely be reading […]

Kenzi and Ember  are settling into the house and apparently it is huge as they continue to find new rooms and places.  I’m surprised how well they get along with Jack and that he is able to live with them and not have problems.   He spends a lot of time enjoying working in the garden. […]

I continue to love the  Rockton series.  I would not try to read this as a standalone. The characters grow and change throughout the series. But mostly, each book is so good I would hate to miss any!  I highly recommend them. Rockton  is more set up and has more things than the other people […]
