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.
My quest for all things urban fantasy continues, and I was delighted to stumble upon Stray Magic by Kelly Meding, the first in the Strays series. Dark magic, necromancy, and a snarky kick-ass half human-half djinn heroine, gave way to an addictive tale. I cannot wait for more!
Jar of Hearts by Jennifer Hillier gives readers a suspenseful standalone thriller that is perfect to bring to the beach. Fast paced with plenty of twists you’ll easily devour this shocking and engaging tale.
Head On by John Scalzi is the companion follow up to Lock In which I equally loved. Humor, suspense, murder and a world filled with Hadens’ await you in this fast-paced addictive tale.
Witch Slapped by Danielle Garrett is the third book in the Beechwood Harbor Magic Mystery series. Once again I listened to the narrations of Amanda Ronconi. Our heroine, exiled witch, Holly Boldt soon finds herself in a heap of trouble.
Dreams of Falling by Karen White is the perfect book to toss into your beach tote this summer. White delivered a rich, captivating tale with plenty of southern charm and a devilishly good mystery.
I found myself in the mood for a romantic suspense, and as luck would have it, Lock ‘N’ Load by Tee O’Fallon popped up in my Inbox. The first in the Federal K-9 series featuring agents and their K-9’s O’Fallon provided a heartwarming, sexy, must-read romance with a suspenseful storyline.
