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 […]

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 […]

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: 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 […]
