Audio: Eight Perfect Murders by Peter Swanson @PeterSwanson3 @grahamhalstead ‏‏@HarperAudio ‏ #LoveAudiobooks

Eight Perfect Murders was not exactly what I expected. But that’s usually a good thing.  The main character ran a book shop in Boston. I enjoyed the bookish things and the different authors and books discussed. The book shop owner, before he was an owner, and was an employee, wrote his first post for the […]

Audio: Unspeakable Things by Jess Lourey @jesslourey @CaitlinKellyVO #BrillianceAudio #KindleUnlimted #LoveAudiobooks

I have been on a kick with mystery/ thrillers lately. Unspeakable Things is set in Minnesota in the 1980s. I lived in Minnesota for many years and I know the rural country where the story is set.  I lived nearby during the same time period actually, but some things felt much older, more like the […]

Audio: Without Sanction by Don Bentley @bentleydonb @SourceLessons @PRHAudio #LoveAudiobooks

I didn’t know anything about this author or series but it sounded different than my usual mystery / thriller books.  Without Sanction is more of a political thriller than a spy or military one,  and the first in the Matt Drake series. I felt a bit confused initially when getting to know the characters and […]

Audio: The Third to Die by Allison Brennan @Allison_Brennan @GutierrezFortin @HarlequinAudio @HarperAudio #LoveAudiobooks

I have been wanting to read this author for awhile, so when this new Mobile Response Team  series started it was a perfect opportunity. The mystery / thriller genre with a touch of romance is my jam right now too. The Third to Die has the incredibly smart and capable, Kara Quinn, on leave from […]

Audio: The Sun Down Motel by Simone St. James @simone_stjames @brit_pressley @kirsten_potter @PRHAudio #LoveAudiobooks

I’ve been wanting to read this author and finally grabbed this audio and did. It’s easier with non series to jump into the work but it’s also a whole new world and story and characters. The Sun Down Motel is a told in two alternating points of view. One is Viv who worked at the […]

Audio: The Good Neighbor by Cathryn Grant @CathrynGrant @emilydvoice @stevemarvel @TantorAudio #LoveAudiobooks

OK, The Good Neighbor was totally not what I expected. I thought it would be a story about looking for the missing girl with her family’s terror and some police procedural detail and the suspense of not knowing what had happened to her.  I also kind of expected that the neighbor would be a key […]

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. This remote wilderness town is in a beautiful, primitive place.  Rockton  is more […]
