I love a good romantic suspense and when you add in a Texas Ranger, I get curious. Foster Justice is the first in Colleen Shannon’s Texas Ranger series and despite not connecting to the romance the case itself kept me flipping the pages.
It has been a while since I read a mystery by Mary Higgins Clark and was excited to listen to The Cinderella Murder the first in the Under Suspicion series. The stories feature cold cases, unsolved murders for a television program and the Cinderella Murder introduced us to Laurie Moran the producer of the television series Under Suspicion. Clark offered a compelling campus mystery with plenty of likely suspects.
William Gibson was an author on my wish list so when an opportunity arose to review his newest science fiction thriller on audio narrated by Lorelei King, I jumped at the chance. The Peripheral is a fascinating speculative fiction set in two worlds in the future that interact over an event. Oddly realistic and filled with gadgets and gizmos it reads like a thriller.
The Burning Girl the second novella in a Whispers Story by Lisa Unger picks up ten years after Eloise Montgomery first discovered her physic abilities. We see the toll this gift has taken on her, and get updates on her daughter and the detective who helped her on her first case.
Holding Holly is a holiday romance novella, in the Love and Football series by Julie Brannagh and takes place in the town of Noel at the peak of the holiday season. Cute, clean and filled with good will towards men, this is a delightful way to spend an evening.
The Oversight by Charles Fletcher is his first foray into adult fiction and a superb one. Beautifully atmospheric with multiple perspectives I quickly became spellbound as Simon Prebble delivered the narrative. The Oversight offers a fascinating and complex world as Fletcher weaves you into its pages.

Blood Magick is the final book in the Cousins of O’Dwyer trilogy and I was anxious for Branna and Finn’s story almost as much as seeing if the witches would finally end the evil that haunts them. While each book deals with one couple, the overall ARC makes it necessary to read this trilogy from the beginning to appreciate the quest. Blood Magick was beautifully written and had moments that made me swoon.
Magic Burns the second book in the Kate Daniels series has solidified this audio series as a favorite. While still gritty, Andrews’ added depth smoothed out some of the rougher aspects and endeared me to Kate. If you have not tried the Kate Daniels series, I urge you to do so. Magic Burns is fresh and original with a storyline and characters that will have you casting the real world aside and losing yourself within its pages!
The wait to get my hands on the audiobook of The Retribution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin seemed like a long one with the cruel cliffhanger I was faced with in The Evolution of Mara Dyer. The mind blowing, twisted, breath-holding plot continued and I removed my ear-buds both satisfied and spent. Hodkin gave us one heck of a ride with her unreliable narrator and twisted plot. Gads!
