Audio: The Haunting of Brynn Wilder by Wendy Webb @wendywebbauthor @xesands @BrillianceAudio  #LoveAudiobooks #KindleUnlimited

I chose The Haunting of Brynn Wilder for a few reasons. First, because Xe Sands is a favorite narrator. Second, the setting is Minnesota where I lived for many years. Next, because is was near Halloween so something spooky seemed fitting. I sort of expected a “real world” haunting, like someone trying to scare Brynn. […]

I read plenty of mystery/thriller type stories.  They have many different sorts of main characters but the primary one in the new Sawyer Brooks series is a crime reporter or investigative journalist.   Sawyer is the youngest of three sisters.  We get her point of view and sometimes her sisters’.  All three of them were sexually […]

Audio: The Last Correspondent by Soraya M. Lane @Soraya_Lane #SarahZimmerman @BrillianceAudio #LoveAudiobooks

I find the stories of women in World War 2 compelling.  The struggle for social equality combined with the desire to support one’s country, and perhaps the whirlwind romances have made this my go-to in the historical genre for the past year.  The Last Correspondent by Soraya M. Lane is a stand alone novel primarily […]

Audio: Shallow Ground by Andy Maslon @Andy_Maslen @SteveWestActor @BrillianceAudio #KindleUnlimited #LoveAudiobooks

When I saw a British mystery with Steve West narrating, it was certain I would read it.  Shallow Ground is the beginning of the Detective Ford series which I’ll definitely want to continue.  The main character is a single dad, who lost his wife in a tragic accident.  He has felt considerable grief and guilt.  […]

I read the first 4 books in this Widow’s Island series through Kindle Unlimited.  They are written alternately by Kendra Elliot and Melinda Leigh. I enjoy both these authors in their mystery genre work.  This series is all short novellas so I have to be more careful not to spoil too much.  I really enjoy […]

I read the first 4 books in this Widow’s Island series through Kindle Unlimited.  They are written alternately by Kendra Eliot and Melinda Leigh.  Each book in the series are short, novella length.   Below the Bones is by Kendra Elliot and is very short, only a couple of hours.  I would not read this without […]

Audio:  In The Deep by Loreth Anne White @Loreth #SarahZimmerman #BrillianceAudio #LoveAudiobooks

In the Deep is a story told mostly by women.  There is not much dialogue; we get mostly the stream of thoughts of the women.   Primarily,  Mrs. Martin Cresswell-Smith and a senior constable, Lozza Bianchi tell us the story.   The Mrs. does not always seem to be a reliable narrator, either. The blurb tells us […]
