The continuation of the Cara Kennedy series is something I was very excited to read.   City Under One Roof introduces us to Cara as a new widow, struggling to put herself together and get answers.  The setting of Point Mettier, Alaska with its one big building and so many interesting characters was well developed.

The Catch by Amy Lea @amyleabooks  #KelseyNavarroFoster @Berkley @Berkley Pub @PRHAudio #LoveAudiobooks

I liked the characters in The Catch, eventually.  At first, they felt like caricatures which were ridiculous, rather than real people, playing roles instead of feeling like banter.   As they connected more as people, and talked to each other, it felt less like a performance and more like real life. It also seemed like even […]

  I am so thrilled to finally have had a chance to read the Iron Druid Chronicles.  Thank you so much to Kevin Hearne for his participation in the Read-along and all my friends and reviewers.   No doubt since Scourged is the final book there will be some spoilers. Urban fantasy is a favorite.  Usually, […]

Read-along & #Giveaway: Besieged by Kevin Hearne @KevinHearne @luckylukeekul @DelReyBooks @PRHAudio  #Read-along #GIVEAWAY #LoveAudiobooks  @kimbacaffeinate

  Besieged is a large collection and after Staked I wasn’t quite ready to leave this world or wait for the next audiobook, so I decided to download this collection. Brilliant, funny, sad, and interesting, I delighted in these tales shared around a campfire. Atticus, Granuaile, and Oberon are enjoying a quiet evening around the campfire at their […]

The station itself is sentient, bonded now with Mrs. Brown. Mrs. Brown decides to take a trip and leaves Mallory to […]

🎧 Blood Sisters by Vanessa Lillie @vanessalillie #CarolinaHoyos #ErinTripp @BerkleyPub @PRHAudio #LoveAudiobooks

I always enjoy stories with aspects from other cultures and Blood Sisters has some of the Native American history. I didn’t know until the author’s note how much of it is based on a true story. The government and its agencies have been very unfair and even cruel. Syd Walker is an archaeologist with the […]
