I listened to the audio version of Sugar Rush, the first book in the Cupcake Club by Donna Kaufman and narrated by Amanda Ronconi. Sugar Rush was a fun, predictable romance with cupcakes! It was friends, or should I say former associates to lover’s romance. Sugar Rush made me laugh, with its small –town setting, banter and community.
I have always wanted to try one of Molly Harper’s books and when the chance to review Better Homes and Hauntings audio arose, I jumped. I love paranormal woo-woo with haunted houses, family lore and island settings. Harper offered up a simple, entertaining tale that will have you rooting for the characters and wanting to defuse a ghost.
Reviving Izabel is the second novel In the Company of Killers by J.A. Redmerski. While I did not love this as much as Killing Sarai, it was nonetheless an edge of your seat tale laced with drama, heat and danger.
Phoenix Rising the first book in the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences by Pip Ballantine and Tee Morris. I found it to be brilliant on audio. From the narrator to the steampunk I was swept up in the action. Mini review: Fantastic characters, brilliant steampunk and a plot that kept me thoroughly entertained.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Truman Capote is a classic written in 1958 this iconic tale has been captured on film and pleased audiences on Broadway. My first introduction to Breakfast at Tiffany’s was the movie starring Audrey Hepburn and the title immediately brings to mind the song, ‘Moon River”. Mini review: a brief glimpse into the quirky life of Holly Golightly and her impact on those whose path she crosses.
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer is the first novel in the Mara Dyer trilogy by Michelle Hodkin. The tale is a mystery and a romance with a paranormal twist. It has an unreliable narrator and was one heck of a crazy ride. Mini review: Twisted, dark, romantic, frustrating, and suspenseful. Hodkin delivered a pull your hair-out read that left me scratching my head and screaming for more.
