🎧 Spellmaker by Charlie N Holmberg @CNHolmberg @EKNOWELDEN @BrillianceAudio #KindleUnlimited #LoveAudiobooks

Spellmaker is the follow up to Spellbreaker and together they form a duology.   I loved Spellbreaker and was thrilled to read more in this world.  I would read these in order.  Luckily, the author does a very small bit of reviewing details, and in a natural way, so it is easy to get into the […]

🎧 Before She Disappeared by Lisa Gardner @LisaGardnerBks ‏@hillatious @BrillianceAudio @LoveAudiobooks

Before She Disappeared is just what I want to read.  There is nothing I didn’t love.   It’s in a favorite genre and has both a private investigator of sorts and police investigations.  The world is well-developed with the grit of ordinary and desperate lives.   The characters also feel so authentic with the nuances of their […]

🎧 Bloodline by Jess Lourey @jesslourey #WhitneyDykhouse  #BrillianceAudio #KindleUnlimted #LoveAudiobooks

I have read many mystery/ thrillers this past year.  I am discovering my preference is police procedurals and political thrillers, more than psychological thrillers.  Bloodline is definitely a psychological thriller.   The setting is Minnesota in areas I know.   There is a well-developed world with large cast of characters who felt real enough.  Anyone who has […]

🎧 An Eye for an Eye by Carol Wyer @carolewyer @McMeireKat  @BrillianceAudi1 #KindleUnlimited #LoveAudiobooks

I’ve really been preferring to read police procedurals lately but you never know exactly what you will get when you try a new (to me) author. I have had some good luck with this genre in Kindle Unlimited titles.  So I read the start of the new Detective Kate Young series.  I’ll definitely be reading […]

🎧 Sweet Water by Cara Reinard @carareinard @amyrubinate @BrillianceAudio @PICT #LOVEAudiobooks #KindleUnlimited

There is the dual aspect of a murder mystery along with a family secrets thriller in Sweet Water.  I admired the main character, Sarah. She really tried to do the right things and she cared for other people. She was so naive though.  She definitely allows herself to see what she wants to believe. Sarah’s […]

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. […]

Audio: Out of Her Mind by TR Ragan @TRRaganAuthor #JennicaDamon #BrillianceAudio #KindleUnlimited #LoveAudiobooks

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 […]
