I am always looking for something a little different when I make my selections for the HoHoHo Readathon. Some years I slip in a horror but this year, Shamus Dust by Janet Roger crossed my desk. A murder-mystery that begins in the wee hours of Christmas morning.
I fully intended to read A Madness of Sunshine by Nalini Singh, but when I saw Saskia Maarleveld was narrating I grabbed my earbuds instead. Singh delivered a suspenseful thriller set in a small coastal town in New Zealand. Gritty and slow to unfold, the narrative pulled me in and it transported me….
I grabbed It’s a Charmed Life by Selene Charles on audio because it made me think of Kate SeRine’ s Transplanted Tales. Narrated by Chelsea Stephens, Ella investigates a murder at the Charming Estate that has her traveling to Wonderland. Fantasy and murder await you……
Today I am back with the next two novellas in the Widow’s Island series by Melinda Leigh and Kendra Elliot. While each book contains a murder-mystery case, the romantic arc and overall cold case is best read in order of the novellas release dates. Grab a cup of coffee and check out my reviews.
The Stalking by Heather Graham is a Krewe of Hunters tale set in Louisiana. It delivered an intense mystery that will have our agents/couple traipsing through the bayou and wandering Jackson Square.
The Shape of Night delivered a suspenseful thriller with a touch of murder, a dash of romance, and a twist of paranormal.
