Night Falls on Predicament Avenue by Jaime Jo Wright @jaimejowright @bethany_house @Austenprose @sophiarose1816

A farmhouse in smalltown Iowa with a history of death and vanishing.  If ghosts walk, they walk there the locals know and two women separated by more than a century are connected to the house by death.  A deeper connection slowly surfaces as the danger grows more acute on Predicament Avenue. I have seen a […]

A Calamity of Souls by David Baldacci @davidbaldacci ‏@GrandCentralPub

A Calamity of Souls by David Baldacci @davidbaldacci ‏@GrandCentralPub

I don’t read very much historical fiction.  It is often degrading to women.  The commonplace beliefs are upsetting.  A Calamity of Souls was heartbreaking each step of the way. With less scientific methods, and the prejudice in law enforcement and judicial systems, a black man arrested for murder is likely to be convicted.  He is […]

🎧 I’m With Her by Sarah Zangrich Jeng @sarahzj @jessevnyc @LouisaXZhu @AceRocBooks @PRHAudio @BerkleyPub #LoveAudiobooks

I expected a bit more of a technical scifi aspect.  There wasn’t too much on the technology.  I’m With Her is much more a psychological thriller. One young woman, Elizabeth, is confidant and used to having her way because of her beauty.  Mary is by no means ugly but lacks confidence and is more interested […]

🎧 A Grave Robbery by Deanna Raybourn @deannaraybourn #AngeleMasters  @recordedbooks #LoveAudiobooks @4saintjude

I think my most anticipated book every year is latest installment of the Veronica Speedwell series.  I don’t hesitate to use my Audible credits to pre-order them, and spend the entire month before the release re-listening to the earlier installments.  A Grave Robbery is book number nine in this fun, well-written series.  I can hardly […]

National Park Mysteries : Yosemite Fall, Arches Enemy, Mesa Verde Victim,  by Scott Graham @sgrahamauthor @joeljrichards @TantorAudio #LoveAudiobooks

  I’ve been enjoying this National Park Mystery series  once I finished the first couple books.  Chuck and Janelle and the two daughters, Carmelita and Rosie, are much more of a tight family now.   Chuck is an archeologist who does work at National Park sites.  Chuck Bender is in his early 50s in good shape.  […]

🎧 Peacemaker by Morgan Brice @MorganBriceBook  @TantorAudio #LoveAudiobooks  @sophiarose1816

After enjoying Morgan Brice’s m/m paranormal romantic suspense series, Badlands, and already loving the western genre and John Solo’s narration work, I figured Peacemaker would be a shoe-in to capture my interest.  I was not mistaken though I had a fun surprise in store when it came to the style of the story. Peacemaker combines […]

Still See You Everywhere by Lisa Gardner @LisaGardnerBks ‏@hillatious @GrandCentralPub @LoveAudiobooks

I LOVE the Frankie Elkin series.  Lisa Gardner has long been an author I have enjoyed and I am thrilled with this new series.  Here’s what I had to say in earlier reviews which gives you a foundation about Frankie: …  Frankie is a recovering alcoholic with no special skills beyond tenacity and the fortitude to […]
