🎧 Check & Mate by Ali Hazelwood @EverSoAli @KarissaVacker @BerkleyRomance @BerkleyPub @PRHAudio #LoveAudiobooks #JIAM

Ali Hazelwood is a genius when it comes to the Smart Romance genre.  She doesn’t simply pay lip service to her subject, such as with a bio-physicist heroine that never actually does anything bio-physicist-y (yup, that is a word).  The science she writes about is always an integral part of the story and the characters […]

🎧 The Killings of Kingfisher Hill by Sophie Hannah @sophiehannahCB1 #JulianRhind-Tutt @HarperAudio #LoveAudiobooks  @sophiarose1816 #JIAM

Poirot and Catchpool return for one of their bizarrest cases yet.  They get one confession of murder and one confession that she thinks she’ll be murdered, all in one coach bus trip- and that’s before they reach the destination of their new case to investigate a murder and get the accused declared innocent. I’ve said […]

Sunday Series: Joe Pickett by CJ Box @cjboxauthor #DavidChandler @RecordedBooks  #SundaySeries #LoveAudiobooks

  I needed to figure out a way to start reading series where I am not current or the series is finished but haven’t read them yet.  So it’s a way to commit myself to read my backlist, particularly series.   I have been wanting to read the Joe Pickett series for awhile after reading […]

Still See You Everywhere by Lisa Gardner @LisaGardnerBks ‏@hillatious @GrandCentralPub @LoveAudiobooks

I LOVE the Frankie Elkin series.  Lisa Gardner has long been an author I have enjoyed and I am thrilled with this new series.  Here’s what I had to say in earlier reviews which gives you a foundation about Frankie: …  Frankie is a recovering alcoholic with no special skills beyond tenacity and the fortitude to […]

🎧 The Monogram Murders by Sophie Hannah @sophiehannahCB1 #JulianRhind-Tutt @HarperAudio #LoveAudiobooks  @sophiarose1816

Recently, I picked up and read the latest release in this series, Hercule Poirot’s Silent Night.  I thought Sophie Hannah did a bang up job giving tribute to Agatha Christie’s Belgian detective and was eager to go back and get the series from the beginning.  I went with the audio version and listened in to […]

🎧 A Psalm for the Wild-Built by Becky Chambers #BeckyChambers #EmmettGrosland @MacmillanAudio #LoveAudiobooks #KindleUnlimited @4saintjude

I’m not entirely sure why I started reading A Psalm for the Wild Built by Becky Chambers.  It is pretty far out of my preferred genre of books.  It might have been after a discussion of books that use non-binary pronouns (they/them), but for whatever reason, I picked up A Psalm for the Wild Built, […]
