Last Ride to Graceland by Kim Wright was a delightful story that has us meandering the back roads of the south as Cory Ainsworth retraces her mother’s trip from Graceland. Road Trip!
Sweep In Peace by Ilona Andrews is the second book in the Innkeeper Chronicles. While the eBook released earlier I held out for the audio. Renée Raudman narrates and I just love the added element she brings to their stories. Sweep in Peace was intense and at times dark, but Andrews sprinkled it with a touch of humor. The listen was addictive and one that kept me up into the wee hours.
I was excited to read the novella Wickedly Ever After by Deborah Blake. It is book 2.5 in the Baba Yaga urban fantasy series and features Barbara Yager from book one, Wickedly Dangerous. Seeking the Queen’s approval to wed Sheriff Liam McClellan they travel to the Otherworld and the tale that unfolded quickly drew me in.
I went into Clear: A Death Trippers Novel by Jessica Park was a trippy, unique, suspenseful story with a paranormal element I have not yet encountered. The synopsis promises a romance a thriller and a paranormal that crosses genres and Park succeeded in that.
Last year I listened to Winter Street by Elin Hilderbrand and loved meeting the Quinns and spending the holidays in Nantucket. What I did not like was the major cliffhanger and abrupt ending. You can just imagine how excited I was to begin Winter Stroll. While the ending was not quite as abrupt, there are still many unresolved issues and once again, I will be counting the days until I am back in Nantucket with this slightly dysfunctional, sweet and chaotic family.
Wickedly Dangerous by Deborah Blake is the first book in the Baba Yaga series and was recently released by Tantor Audio featuring Romy Nordlinger as narrator. A twist on the Baba Yaga lore, Wickedly Dangerous delivers a mystery wrapped in paranormal woo-woo with a side dish of romance.
The Accident Season by Moïra Fowley-Doyle was not on my radar until I read a review from a fellow blogger. Then an opportunity to review the audio version with Colby Minifie reading presented itself and I jumped. I am so delighted that I did so as the Accident Season was beautiful, dark, mysterious, and quirky.
