Stranger Things was our first Netflix series binge, despite owning Netflix since its inception. I was excited when Suspicious Minds by Gwenda Bond, a prequel to the series came across my desk. The story takes us to 1969, Indiana and into the Hawkins National Laboratory where Dr. Martin Brenner is conducting LSD tests on college students for the CIA. Come along and meet test subject 008.
The Au Pair written by Emma Rous and narrated by Elizabeth Sastre & Nicola Barber offered a suspenseful domestic-noir that held me captive. I first learned about the book at Between my Lines and jumped at the chance to review the audio. Rous takes us to the New England coast in this gothic tale as a distraught young woman searches for clues about her past.
Narrated by Michelle Dockrey, Beneath the Sugar Sky By Seanan McGuire is the third novella in the Wayward Children fantasy series.
The Guardian by Sarah Fine is the second novel in the Immortal Dealers, urban fantasy series. With a clever plot and fun magical world filled with cards, summoning creatures and more I quickly slipped back in thanks to the narrations of Carly Robins.
Changeling is the first in the Sorcery and Society series by Molly Harper. When I saw Amanda Ronconi would narrate, I knew I had to listen. Boarding schools, dark secrets, magical books, social classes and suspense await you.
Beautifully written prose with haunting images and depth, Alyson Hagy pulled me into the dystopian world of Scribe, as narrator Shannon McManus’ southern twang enveloped me.
Echoes of Evil by Heather Graham is the twenty-sixth book in the Krewe of Hunters paranormal romantic suspense series but can be read as a standalone. Once again I listened as Luke Daniels is narrating. Key West and a murder-mystery involving musicians quickly pulled me in.
