SLIGHTLY SOUTH OF SIMPLE by Kristy Woodson Harvey is the perfect book to take to the beach this summer. The first in the Peachtree Bluff series, this women’s fiction novel takes you to the seaside town of Peachtree Bluff as Ansley finds her beachfront home filled to the brim.
VEILED MAGIC by Deborah Blake released in 2015, and I was waiting for the audiobook release, but when I realized book two was releasing and still no audio, I decided to bite the bullet and read them. I devoured this on a lazy Sunday morning. Blake shared a fabulously paced story, with fantastic world building and a motley crew of characters.
THE GIRL WHO KNEW TOO MUCH by Amanda Quick delivered a suspenseful tale set against the backdrop of 1930s Hollywood. A retired magician and a woman on the run team up to solve a murder mystery. Come to Tinseltown and discover their secrets.
Maizy’s story! TWO MINUTES by Dannika Dark is the sixth audio in the Seven series. This paranormal romance takes place years after the last. Our Maizy is all grown up and has her eyes set on Denver. With an intense storyline, this heartbreaking romance held me captive.
Slated for my 2017 top ten audio list, THE NIGHT THE LIGHTS WENT OUT delivered an addictive, heart-warming, and suspenseful tale that kept me listening. Grab a cup of coffee and let me take you to the quiet town of Sweet Apple, Georgia where gossip and southern hospitality go hand in hand.
Welcome to Nonna’s Corner. Today I am sharing the picture book HATTIE PECK: THE JOURNEY HOME written and illustrated by Emma Levey. Come along as Hattie sends her beloved children out on their own.

Last year I shared my fear of spiders and my review of THE HATCHING book one in the Hatching trilogy. SKITTER by Ezekiel Boone is the second novel, and once again he takes us around the world as the second wave of spiders gets ready to emerged. Creepy and realistic this apocalyptic tale will leave you screaming.
A MURDER IN TIME by Julie McElwain narrated by Lucy Rayner introduces us to Kendra Donovan, in this time-traveling 1800s whodunit. At times brilliant, this intriguing tale kept me listening even if this was not my favorite narration.
AT THE CEMETERY GATES by John Brhel & Joseph Sullivan is a collection of fourteen short stories. It shares a nice mix of supernatural, macabre, and urban legend tales. Like most anthology collections it offered a mixed bag of stories. Grab a cup of Joe and read my thoughts on each tale.
I enjoy the writings of Seanan McGuire and those under her pen name Mira Grant. When I saw DUSK OR DAWN OR DAWN OR DUSK I immediately one-clicked. McGuire offers a unique take on ghosts that took us from the cornfields of Kansas to the inner city streets of New York. A brilliant world and concept that left me hankering for more.
