I am continuing my journey with the Dresden Files and recently devoured Summer Knight by Jim Butcher, narrated by James Marsters. Fairies, pizza and the courts of Summer and Winter made for an engaging listen.
Sadie by Courtney Summers was a hard read, but Summers never fails to impress me. It’s the kind of story that sticks with you. A mystery, an investigation and heart-wrenching discoveries await you dear reader. Set time aside for this as it will keep you reading into the wee hours, sleep be damned.
Ruth Ware has become a must listen author here at Caffeinated. Imogen Church has narrated all her novels. Her accent and tone blend perfectly with Ware’s mystery thrillers. The Death of Mrs. Westaway was a twisted, gothic tale where the characters and subtle tones slowly reveal what we the reader had feared. An atmospheric and addictive whodunit!
A Merciful Secret by Kendra Elliot is the third book of the series. Set in Oregon, it features an FBI Agent who grew up in a survivalist household. Mercy, the FBI and Police Chief Truman Daly, investigate the murder of an old woman rumored to be a witch.
Scandal Above Stairs by Jennifer Ashley is the second novel in the Kat Holloway Mysteries and offered another suspenseful mystery, with wonderful banter as we deal with life above and below in 1880 London.
The Man On The Roof by Michael Stephenson shares a suspenseful murder mystery as we delve into the homes of a small suburban tree-lined street. One of them is a killer. How well do you know your neighbors? Dark, gritty and engaging Stephenson shows us what goes on behind closed doors.
Give a warm welcome to Sophia Rose, who is here today sharing the Island of the Mad by Laurie R. King. Come see what Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes are up to as they work to solve another mystery.
The Librarian’s Vampire Assistant by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff grabbed my attention through Facebook Ads. A librarian, and a vampire? Yes, please. This was a cute paranormal mystery with suspenseful aspects and hints of romantic infatuation.
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.
