Audio: All His Pretty Girls by Charly Cox @charlylynncox #KateZane @TantorAudio #LoveAudiobooks

What a terrifying and gut-wrenching ride!  All His Pretty Girls is an exciting story with the two main characters being a cop and the criminal.  I wouldn’t have noticed this as much, but I just read a science fiction story with this same dynamic.   It’s really frightening how difficult it is for cops to catch […]

I listened to Gone to Dust after seeing it as an Audible daily deal and have continued with the Nils Shapiro series .    I really enjoyed the Minnesota setting since so much is familiar, having lived there for many years.   Dead West,  the fourth book in the series, is a whole different feel as it […]

Somehow, I thought with the title, The Crime Beat, I would be getting a true crime story. This is a 9 episode, Crime Beat. The genre is mystery / thriller and it is fiction.  The main characters are an unlikely duo.  Jane is a crime beat reporter who is a widow.  Rob is a former […]

The title, Seven Lies, means that someone isn’t telling the truth.  I usually prefer those who tell the truth.  But I understand the sort of white lie which is part of not hurting someone else’s feelings or even to allow them to express their own opinion separate from your own.  We get the honest story […]

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 […]

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.  […]

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 […]
