Suspicion by Joseph Finder is an intense thriller where a father down on his luck borrows money from the father of his daughter’s best friend and ends up in a cat and mouse game that could cost him his life. While not without flaws, Suspicion was a fast-paced tale that kept me flipping the pages.
I was a little nervous starting Sky Pirates the third book in Liesel Schwarz’s Chronicles of Light and Shadow. The second book, A Clockwork Heart, left me frustrated, but wow Sky Pirates brought back all of the elements I loved in A Conspiracy of Alchemists. Action packed, with lovable characters this steampunk has us traveling the world, and engaging in battles. The heroine Elle Chance is fantastic. She is kick-ass and determined. I don’t recommend crossing her.
Mitosis is a mini-story set between Steelheart and Firelight books in the Reckoners series by Brandon Sanderson. MacLeod Andrews narrate the audio and he nailed David. While the story is only one hour and three minutes long it has all the things I love about this series. Mitosis while small delivered an evil Epic, news about Newscago and plenty of action.
Can I just have a moment to fan girl? Squeeeee! Ok, I feel more in control. I am in love with this author and series. The third in the Tangled series by Emma Chase, Tamed gives us yet another male perspective and I abso-friggin-lout-ly love the way Chase fleshes out her characters. They are snarky, genuine, raw and make me giggle: snort like nobody’s business!
Have you ever started a book and within the first few pages, just knew you were going to love it? Burn for Me by Ilona Andrews the first in her new Hidden Legacy series was that kind of book. I consumed it with a smile on my face from its well-built world to the characters I was in book nirvana! Burn For Me is a must read for Urban Fantasy lovers this Fall.
The Cemetery Tours series is turning out to be great fun. Between Worlds by Jacqueline E. Smith is the second paranormal adventure in the series and I quickly consumed it. These ghostly mysteries are light, with a slow burning side of romance, humor and Ghost Hunter TV.

Flawed and Damaged is the debut new adult novel for Emily Krat and first in the Damaged Hearts series. While dubbed new adult, the male protagonist is slightly older and the female heroine is out in the world force in Moscow. It was a fun, fast-paced novel that while not without flaws kept me entertained.
Beautiful Oblivion is the first in the Maddox Brothers series and the third book in the Beautiful series by Jamie McGuire. I have loved this series from the get-go and fell in love with Trenton Maddox. Beautiful Oblivion takes place during Abby and Travis Beautiful Disaster, and we catch glimpses of their world-wind relationship.

I was excited to continue my journey in the Mara Dyer trilogy by Michelle Hodkin and once again went with the audio version for The Evolution of Mara Dyer. I love an unreliable narrator, and Hodkin is brilliant at keeping the reader second-guessing. I liked The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, but I loved the twisted, mind-bending tale delivered in the Evolution of Mara Dyer.
