I loved the continuation with the scientific aspects of learning about the Neighbors and August learning about the plants and animals on Earth.  We are seeing things from Renee’s point of view, which is naturally more focused on the scientific wonder of this opportunity. We start to learn more about the political and business thoughts.  […]

I really enjoyed listening to this police procedural but much more.  Anna is a police detective of fairly high rank.   When murders which resemble her father’s crimes of 20 years ago, she starts remembering that time.  We follow her point of view with the present of wanting to figure out the crime, and the past […]

🎧 Funny Story by Emily Henry #EmilyHenry @BerkleyRomance @BerkleyPub @justjuliawhelan @PRHAudio @Librofm #LoveAudiobooks

Emily Henry’s stories related by Julia Whelan really hit the feelings for me.  Funny Story started as not at all funny but heartbreaking. The outcome was ironic, not humorous funny.  With only a week to find somewhere to live, Daphne ends up with the ex-fiancé (Miles) of her ex-fiancé’s (Peter) new fiancé (Petra).  Uh, yeah. […]

🎧 I’m With Her by Sarah Zangrich Jeng @sarahzj @jessevnyc @LouisaXZhu @AceRocBooks @PRHAudio @BerkleyPub #LoveAudiobooks

I expected a bit more of a technical scifi aspect.  There wasn’t too much on the technology.  I’m With Her is much more a psychological thriller. One young woman, Elizabeth, is confidant and used to having her way because of her beauty.  Mary is by no means ugly but lacks confidence and is more interested […]

Well this was sort of a surprise and I LOVED it.   It really highlighted the difference between science and military / politics of things.  This Eclipsed Evolution series is a view into aliens visiting Earth as their own planet is dying. The trilogy is initially being released on audio first. The audio is short and […]

🎧 Happily Never After by Lynn Painter @LAPainter  #HelenLaser @SeanPatrickHop @BerkleyRomance @PRHAudio @Librofm #LoveAudiobooks

I can always count on Lynn Painter for snappy, forthright dialogue and interesting concepts.  In this case, having an objector at the wedding when one of the party is a cheater.  It makes it feel more like it is not the non-cheater’s fault, as though they are an innocent victim rather than an accuser.  I […]

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. […]
