Audio:  Love & Other Crimes by Sara Paretsky @SaraParetsky #SusanEriksen @HarperAudio ‏#LoveAudiobooks #JIAM

I have read and loved the V.I. Warshawski series for a looooong time, since it started in 1982! Each book is another case, so you could read them out of order but I wouldn’t.  I enjoy the progression of the characters and they are all great to read. Love & Other Crimes is different, an […]

Audio: The Art of Deception by Leonard Goldberg #LeonardGoldberg @SteveWestActor @MacmillanAudio #LoveAudiobooks #JIAM

I was thrilled to continue with  The Daughter of Sherlock Holmes Mysteries series.  I love Sherlock Holmes style mysteries, and the setting in England. Even if I didn’t, this is narrated by STEVE WEST. There have been a number of art vandalisms and break-ins.  The Watson family is on the case.  There were plenty of […]

Audio: Stranger in the Lake by Kimberly Belle @KimberlySBelle @xesands @HarperAudio #LoveAudiobooks #JIAM

I love mystery thrillers and Xe Sands so this felt like a great fit.  Things felt off from the start. Poor Charlotte has always been strong and smart and capable. She is finally happy to be in a marriage where someone can take care of her sometimes and she doesn’t have to worry about having […]

Audio: You Can’t Catch Me by Catherine McKenzie @CEMcKenzie1 @justjuliawhelan #BrillianceAudio #LoveAudiobooks #JIAM

There are some narrators who I like enough to pay attention to an audio book when they are the narrator.  Julia Whelan is one of those, so I saw she was the narrator and decided to get this one for review. At the very beginning, I knew what was going to happen as it happened.  […]

Audio: Deadly Silence by OMG Ryan @OMJRYAN1 @daniellercohen1 @TantorAudio #LoveAudiobooks #JIAM

So I’m a sucker for a British police procedural. Throw in a female team lead and the format being an audiobook, and you have serious interest from me.  Deadly Silence follows a serial killer case. The killer is fast-paced and brutal. Our point of view is Jane Phillips who is leading her old team, but […]

Audio: The Guest List by Lucy Foley @lucyfoleytweets @jotdavies #ChloeMassey #OliviaDowd @RichKeeble @HarperAudio #LoveAudiobooks #JIAM

WOW!  I have to say The Guest List was so engaging.  There are so many different points of view, leading up to the wedding of Julia and Will.  Each narrator voices a different point of view with their thoughts and feelings.  It’s unclear why we get those points of view exactly.  But they show a […]

Read A Series in a Month Challenge May 2020 Results @Loreth @MissJulieMcKay #BrillianceAudio @Limabean74 @BerlsS #SeriesinaMonth #LoveAudiobooks

  My choice is the Angie Pallorino series by Loreth Anne White.  I purchased all the audio books through Audible. I’ve enjoyed some of this author’s other works.   I’m also on a mystery/thriller / suspense mood so this series was a fit.   I expected the genre but The Drowned Girls was so much more.  […]

Audio: Don’t Make a Sound by TR Ragan @TRRaganAuthor #JennicaDamon #BrillianceAudio #LoveAudiobooks #JIAM

Don’t Make a Sound is the start of the new Sawyer Brooks series. It focuses primarily on the youngest of three sisters, Sawyer.  I don’t know what I expected, but I didn’t expect her to be a crime reporter.  I guess that is in the blurb, but I expected more police involvement.  She has been […]

Audio: A Stroke of Malice by Anna Lee Huber @AnnaLeeHuber #HeatherWilds  @TantorAudio  #LoveAudiobooks

Intelligent and talented outcast solves mysteries with the help of handsome sidekick.  It’s a plot device that appeals to my puzzle-loving brain and non-conformist heart.  Add the escapism of a different time period and I’m completely sold.  Anna Lee Huber elegantly blends historical romance with suspense in A Stroke of Malice, the 8th installment of […]
