I adore Nora Roberts novels from her books filled with paranormal woo-woo to her romantic suspense and everything in-between. Honestly, I think I have read every one of her books since I was a teen. While they are not always, my favorite books I can whole-heartedly claim I enjoyed them all. The Collector for me was exceptional, with its interesting, quirky heroine to the suspense-filled tale that had me flipping the pages and losing track of reality.

Big Driver was originally published in Stephen King’s acclaimed collection, Full Dark, No Stars. It has been released as a standalone in celebration of the movie adaption. Tonight, Big Driver, will premiere on Lifetime Movie Channel. I was so excited to receive a copy of the audio edition of Big Driver. As a Stephen King fan, this one gave me the chills and thrills I crave from his novels. Dark, haunting, creepy and engaging I devoured this short audio.
Unknown Assailant by Lina Gardiner offers up a fast moving cat and mouse chase that I quickly consumed. At around two hundred pages, this romantic suspense is the perfect afternoon escape.

I was so excited when I received an audio copy of Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld. The synopsis intrigued me, and I dove into the audio with such anticipation. Despite a stellar performance by narrators, Sheetal Sheth, and Heather Lind, the overall stories feel flat for me, making the story unmemorable.
Snow Like Ashes is a brilliant fantasy with strong world-building and fearless protagonists. This is the first book in the Snow Like Ashes trilogy by Sara Raasch I quickly became swept up in the world, and it’s characters.
Earlier this year I read and enjoyed the first novel in the Mind’s Eye series about psychic detectives Levi Wolf and Trudy Tucker. In Through His Touch, their relationship continues to grow as someone is killing off women in Levi’s life. Heavy on romance and Levi and Trudy’s romance this romantic paranormal suspense was engaging with fleshed out characters.

I am a die-hard Stephen King fan and have been since I was a teenager. I love his quirky characters, vivid imagination and his ability to pull me into the story. Recently I have been enjoying audio books and snagged Mr. Mercedes on audio when I saw the narrator was Will Patton. Mr. Mercedes was brilliant mystery crime thriller with an eclectic cast of characters who intrigued me as much as solving the case. I laughed, cringed and gave myself over to the audio.
