As Bright as Heaven by Susan Meissner was a poignant story set in 1900’s Philadelphia and a portion takes place during World War I, the Spanish Flu and eventual Prohibition. Narrated by Cassandra Morris, Tavia Gilbert, Jorjeana Marie, Abigail Revasch this brilliantly crafted historical fiction shares the Bright families triumphs, heartaches and the bonds that tie them.
I first discovered The Buried Book by D.M. Pulley in my Prime Library through Amazon and earmarked it to read. I love a good mystery and liked the rural historical setting. In January Audible had a sale offering up all the daily deals. While browsing, I saw that Luke Daniels narrated this and one-clicked. I am so glad that I did, as The Buried Book proved to be an addictive tale.
In Promise to Keep, Genevieve Graham transports readers to the shores of Grande Pré, Nova Scotia during the summer of 1755, where the peaceful Acadian farmers, experience life-altering changes as their land becomes British Occupied. Narrated by Alexis Quednau, I quickly became caught up in Belliveau families story through the voice of Amelie Belliveau. Beautiful, captivating and heart-wrenching Promise to Keep is a story that will stay with you.
Next Year in Havana by Chanel Cleeton is quite the departure from Cleeton’s contemporary romance series, but she delivered a rich, detailed historical fiction with an air of mystery and a look into Cuba’s history, culture, and people.
I have long wanted to try Victoria Thompson’s Gaslight Mystery series but at twenty-one books, I kept putting it off. When I saw she was beginning a new series, The Counterfeit Lady, and read the synopsis for City of Lies, I knew it was time. City of Lies delivered an addictive tale with a quick-thinking grifter who soon finds herself a part of history as she tries to outwit a killer.
A Daring Arrangement by Joanna Shupe is the first novel in the Four Hundred series surrounding the elite families of New York during the Gilded Age. I was completely drawn to this story by its description. An English beauty with a scheme and an American scoundrel make an arrangement..all set against New York City during the Gilded Age? How could I refuse?
