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 Lies That Bind by Emily Giffin @emilygiffin @brit_pressley @vikasadam @jwdamron #SimonKatz @PRHAudio #LoveAudiobooks #JIAM

I started listening to The Lies That Bind at about 6 pm when I went out to pull weeds, and continued to listen, finishing the book at 3am.  The story is more life fiction than thriller.  There is a progression for Cecily who has to learn what she really wants, how to build a relationship […]

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 […]

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: Pretty Things by Janelle Brown @janelleb @justjuliawhelan @LaurenFortgang @hillatious @PRHAudio #LoveAudiobooks

Pretty Things is a great step into a whole new world. This mystery thriller held me waiting to see what happened next. The chapters were from different main characters point of view, mostly Nina and Vanessa. Nina is the grifter and Vanessa is the heiress. I was team Nina from the beginning. This might be […]

Audio: The Herd by Andrea Bartz @andibartz @KarissaVacker @zwooman @PRHAudio #LoveAudiobooks

This is totally a women’s story.

When Eleanor disappears, all her choices, past and present, start coming into focus.  […]
