The Au Pair written by Emma Rous and narrated by Elizabeth Sastre & Nicola Barber offered a suspenseful domestic-noir that held me captive. I first learned about the book at Between my Lines and jumped at the chance to review the audio. Rous takes us to the New England coast in this gothic tale as a distraught young woman searches for clues about her past.
I enjoy the Mercy Kilpatrick series by Kendra Elliot and I was excited to dive into A Merciful Fate. This is the fifth novel, in the series and I was not disappointed. For me, it was the strongest murder-mystery of the series. An unsolved, thirty-year-old bank heist gave way to suspense, townie secrets and more.
I discovered Dark Peak by Adam J. Wright in an offer for audio review copies and was initially drawn to the cover. Once I read the synopsis, I knew I had to uncover the mysteries surrounding Blackden Edge. Is there a serial killer? What happened to Sarah?
It’s time for a guest visit from Sophia Rose and today she is sharing another Jay Porter mystery; Give Up the Dead by Joe Clifford. Grab a cup of hot peppermint mocha and enjoy!
Sherry Thomas delivers another atmospheric and suspenseful tale! Charlotte investigates the case of a missing man with familiar ties, an unidentified body, a possible poisoning and more in A Conspiracy in Belgravia. Once again, I listened and urge you to grab this fabulous and refreshing series.
The Mortal Word by Genevieve Cogman is the fifth book in the Invisible Library fantasy series. From the characters to the murder-mystery I had a fantastic time diving back into these worlds. Irene Winters, Vale, and Kai are called upon to investigate a murder that take place during peace talks between the Fae and the Dragons. Grab a cuppa and see why this series is a #mustread for fans of fantasy.
A Study in Scarlet Women by Sherry Thomas is the first in the Lady Sherlock series and I’ve had it on Audible almost since its release. I also preordered the next two and yet they sat. When Because Reading issued a month long challenge to read a series in a month I knew it was time. I am kicking myself quite thoroughly for having waited. Grab a peppermint mocha latte and see why you should begin them now….
