Wicked and the Wallflower by Sarah MacLean is the book in her new Bareknuckle Bastards series. Set in Covent Gardens, this series will feature three siblings who run businesses in the darker parts of London. For fans, you’ll also see characters from her previous series. You’ll even get to visit such fine establishments as the Fallen Angel and Singing Sparrow!
Rainy Day Friends by Jill Shalvis is the second full-length novel in her Wildstone stories, and it delivered all the humor, warm, and swoons I have come to expect in a Shalvis novel. Rainy Day Friends one tugged at my heartstrings, made me laugh and feel right at home. I want a job at the family-run Capriotti Winery. Heck, I want to be adopted by them.
Come As You Are by Lauren Blakely was beautiful with all the adorkable feels! Told from dual perspectives and narrated by Sebastian York and Andi Arndt I lost serious sleep listening until well after 2 am in search of happily ever after.
And my crazy urban fantasy binge continues with Half-Off Ragnarok by Seanan McGuire. This is the third audio in the InCryptid series. Interestingly it comes with a change in POV, narrators, locations, and murder. Once again McGuire pulled me into the crazy world of InCryptid.
As I continued my binge of the Iron Druid Chronicles, I wasn’t sure if I would grab all the novellas on audio or in fact even read them, but Besieged is a large collection and after Staked I wasn’t quite ready to leave this world or wait for the next book in April so I decided to download this collection. Brilliant, funny, sad, and interesting I delighted in these tales shared around a campfire.
The Squirrel on the Train by Kevin Hearne Oberon’s Meaty Mysteries #2 in which Oberon proves squirrels are EVIL! Hearne treats us to a suspenseful murder mystery with high tech gadgets, a shifter and more. The world’s number one Irish Wolfhound detective Oberon is on the case with his trusted friends.
I am continuing to devour the Iron Druid Chronicles, even as I kick myself for having delayed listening to them for so long. Tricked was a transition novel after the events of Hammered, but still packed a punch as new friends were made, relationships were severed and characters faced down death.
Hounded by Kevin Hearne first sat on my kindle after bloggers I adore and trust called it a must-read. Then when I read reviews about the narrations of Luke Daniels, I added the Audible edition. There it sat in my queue for over a year. I am kicking myself, seriously. Hounded is all that I love about urban fantasy with a narration that was utterly addictive.
