Fourth of July weekend, despite my pile of ARCS and my long TBR list I was in the mood for something different to read. Can you relate? My Kindle Oasis has Ads that appear on the screen saver and The Body Reader had teased me all week-long. On impulse, I clicked read more, read the synopsis and clicked BUY, only to discover as a Prime member I could read it free! This was my first time taking advantage of the lending library and I am eager to try it again next month.
Marrow by Tarryn Fisher with its clever cover and tempting synopsis found its way into my TBR pile. A recent blogger review bumped it up my pile and I devoured it during the March Take Control of Your TBR Challenge. Twisted, addictive, dark, brilliant and gritty I devoured Marrow.
I’ve been lovin’ thrillers on audio this summer and was delighted to accept The Drowning Game by L.S. Hawker for review. Narrated by Amanda Dolan and Paul Woodson this mystery thriller offered twists and turns as it kept me guessing. A brilliant thriller that will keep you guessing.
Nowhere to Hide by Lindsay McKenna is the first book in the romantic suspense series Delos. It delivered a heart tugging romance surrounding two damaged individuals, but didn’t deliver the suspense I felt the synopsis promised.
Annnd it is over.*weeps over coffee cup* Steel’s Edge by Ilona Andrews is the last book in the Edge series. Once again, I listened as Renee Raudman narrated. Fans of the series are rewarded with answers regarding Spider and the Hand in this action-packed edition. Charlotte de Nay is headstrong and her romance with Richard Mar was delightful.
In March I shared some of Princess Sophia’s favorites and you recommended books to me. One of those books was Giraffes Can’t Dance by Giles Andreae. When I received a gift card from Amazon I did what any Nonna would do- I ordered the board book. I am delighted that I did. Enjoy my review and then grab a copy for your favorite little one.
I received a copy of Before the Fall by Noah Hawley at BEA and after hearing a narration sample and reading some blogger reviews I decided to grab an audiobook. I switched back and forth between the two before listening completely.
The Sight by Chloe Neill is the second book in the Devil’s Isle urban fantasy series set against the backdrop of New Orléans. Sensitive Claire Connolly and bounty hunter Liam Quinn face a new threat against humans and paranormal. Can Claire save the city she loves and keep from being discovered? The Sight delivered an addictive story filled with characters you will want to befriend. Join this motley crew as they battle to save NOLA.
I have been having a blast listening to Lauren Blakely’s contemporary romances, so when an opportunity to review The Sapphire Affair the first in her romantic suspense series Jewel happened, I jumped. Narrated by Sebastian York, and set in the Cayman Islands with a sexy bounty hunter this is the perfect way to spend the evening.
Flight from Mayhem by Yasmine Galenorn is the second novel in the Fly by Night urban fantasy series. While I enjoyed Flight from Death, I was rewarded with a stronger story in Flight of Mayhem. Dragons, murder, supernatural creatures, snark and more made this an addictive read.
