Narrated by Wil Wheaton, Starter Villain by John Scalzi was pure magic, from humor to characters in this standalone science fiction fantasy. A down on his luck man inherits his estranged uncle’s supervillain business, and the world turns upside down. Unputdownable!
Meddy Chan is getting married, and the Aunties have the perfect wedding planners for them. But Meddy’s perfect day turns upside down when the Mafia gets involved in Four Aunties and a Wedding by Jesse Q. Sutanto. Narrated by Risa Mei, it offered a fun, quirky mystery with plenty of shenanigans that kept me listening.
After loving and devouring Vera Wong’s Unsolicited Advice for Murderers, I grabbed some of Jesse Q. Sutanto’s backlist from the library. Dial A for Aunties is a hilarious coming of age fiction. Filled with aunties and mystery. This immigrant Chinese-Indonesian family who will steal your heart. Come see why I enjoyed this first in the Aunties series.
I was drawn to The Book Haters’ Book Club by Gretchen Anthony with it’s promise of book talk, humor and family. This women’s fiction story delivered a heart-felt humorous story about the Over the Rainbow Bookstore and what happens when one co-owners dies… the one who actually loved books.
A Good Day for Chardonnay by Darynda Jones delivered mystery, romance, suspense and small-town antics with plenty of humor and answers to questions. This is the second novel in the Sunshine Vicram series and it has all the elements I’ve come to love from Jones. Grab an iced coffee and find out why Darynda Jones is an autobuy.
I adore Oberon the Irish Wolfhound who is Atticus O’Sullivan’s companion in the Iron Druid Chronicles. The series mentions Oberon’s Meaty Mysteries and I knew I had to listen. The Purloined Poodle is the first and while it takes place in the world of the Iron Druids it is more of a mystery that Oberon solves with the assistance of Atticus. Suspenseful and hilarious this was splendid.
