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.
The Graveyard Queen has been one of my favorite series from the eerie graveyards to the ghostly mysteries. THE AWAKENING by Amanda Stevens wraps up the series (for now) and provided answers as we watch Amelia Gray face down her fears. Atmospheric and suspenseful I simply devoured this tale.
As you may remember, I won the Seven series on audio. Five Weeks by Dannika Dark is the third book in the Seven series and features one couple’s romance, some suspense and a dash of snark. I wasn’t a fan of Jericho after listening to the previous two book but was curious to see if Dark could redeem this rocker in my eyes. Color me surprised! I ended up loving this singer.
Grounds to Kill by Wendy Roberts has been in my TBR pile forever. How could I resist a cozy mystery with a coffee theme? Grounds to Kill is the first book in the Latte, Espresso, Cappuccino & Murder Mystery series featuring Barista Jen Hanby. Entertaining with a light swish of paranormal Roberts delivered a solid murder mystery with banter, suspense and coffee!!!
The Old Witcheroo by Dakota Cassidy is the fourth book in the Witchless in Seattle series. The tale features Stevie Cartwright, a spunky, quirky, powerless witch. Who along with her British ghost spy and unique familiar solve murder mysteries. Stevie once again stumbles across a body, and you know all those phone calls from a guy claiming to be her dead Brit? He shows up and well, let’s just say, things get a little crazy.
Marvelry’s Curiosity Shop by John Brhel and Joseph Sullivan is a collection of twelve short stories surrounding Marvelry’s Curiosity Shop and the odd and sometimes cursed artifacts sold in the shop. Perfect shorts for the witching seasoning these tales reminded me of the stories told around the campfire. I loved the unique store and strange sometimes spooky stories.
I have been thoroughly enjoying the Witchless In Seattle series by Dakota Cassidy. Today I am sharing my thoughts on Quit Your Witchin’ and Dewitched the second and third books in the series. I have been listening to the books on audio and Hollie Jackson captures the humor of this series perfectly. Filled with snark, and feisty characters Cassidy shares the misadventures of Stevie Cartwright, her familiar Belfry and and resident British ghost spy Winterbottom as they investigates murders. Hilarious and addictive I hope you check out these audios.
Deadly Fate by Heather Graham is the nineteenth book in the Krewe of Hunters series. While key characters and the premise of the Krewe link each book all can be read as standalone. Clever twists, ghostly apparitions and heated kisses all on a private island made Deadly Fate a page-turner.
Stars of Fortune by Nora Roberts is the first novel in her newest collection, The Guardians Trilogy. Steeped in mythology this paranormal story takes place on a small Greek island where six strangers drawn by fate begin a quest. The tale is wrapped in mythology as this team unites to find three stars forged by ancient goddess and sought by evil forces.
I devoured the audio of The Voodoo Killings written by Kristi Charish and narrated by Susannah Jones. By devoured I mean I listened to all 11 hours and 43 minutes in a single day. Urban fantasy and audio mesh perfectly for me. Charish quickly pulled me into this world and I cannot wait for more.
