A PERFECT OBSESSION by Heather Graham is the second novel in the New York Confidential romantic suspense series featuring forensic psychologist Kieran Finnegan and FBI Special Agent Craig Fraiser. Beautiful young women are being murdered and placed on display in underground tombs and mausoleums. From secondary characters to the murder-mystery Graham kept me listening.
Last year, THE BOURBON THIEF made my top ten list, so I knew I had to read THE NIGHT MARK by Tiffany Reisz. I chose to listen to the audiobook, and I quickly devoured this on a rainy weekend. Time travel, interesting characters, and fate made THE NIGHT MARK an interesting listen.
FLAWLESS by Heather Graham is the first in the New York Confidential series. This is a contemporary romance set in Manhatten in the Irish community. The tale narrated by Saskia Maarleveld offered suspense, a loud Irish family, and a copy-cat crime.

THE BASTARD BILLIONAIRE is the final book in the Billionaire Bad Boys series by Jessica Lemmon. Each book deals with one of the Crane brothers. While they may be billionaires they are also passionate, slightly flawed and all around good guys. It just takes the right woman to see the tamer side of them. Lemmon delivered a powerful, sexy tale as Isabella Sawyer takes on Eli Crane in a beauty and the beast game of wits.
I listened to A Promise of Fire the first book in the Kingmaker Chronicles written by Amanda Bouchet and narrated by Mia Barron. It was brilliant, addictive, funny, and romantic. I need more of these characters and world now!
Protector for Hire by Tawna Fenske is the fourth book in the Front and Center series. Somehow I read book one and then fell behind but no worries as each works as a standalone. If you are looking for a quick, romantic escape with snark and sexy moments, Protector for Hire is the perfect read.
Stars of Fortune by Nora Roberts is the first novel in her newest collection, The Guardians Trilogy.

The tale is wrapped in mythology as this team unites to find three stars forged by ancient goddess and sought by evil forces.
I am always on the lookout for a good criminal thriller and It Takes One by Kate Kessler promised to deliver thrills, secrets and murder. It Takes One offered an interesting protagonist, an intriguing case and shed light on the “ins and outs” of small-town mentality. The first novel in the Audrey Harte series, I look forward to more cases and adventures with this snarky, strong woman.
Leaving Amy by Julieann Dove is the second book in the Amy trilogy. It highlights a young woman’s struggles in finding herself, recovering from betrayal and the vicissitudes of love. I devoured Leaving Amy and became emotionally invested.
