Today I am excited to invite Sophia Rose to share her review of Revenge in a Cold River by Anne Perry. Many of you know Sophia as a co-blogger at Delightful Reader. Sophia is a book addict like myself and loves to read a plethora of genres. Since Delightful Reader focuses on books with a romance, Sophia will occasionally pop over here to Caffeinated and share other genres she loves. I hope you will give her a warm welcome. Sophia will be replying to your comments and questions. Enjoy!
Fourth of July weekend, despite my pile of ARCS and my long TBR list I was in the mood for something different to read. Can you relate? My Kindle Oasis has Ads that appear on the screen saver and The Body Reader had teased me all week-long. On impulse, I clicked read more, read the synopsis and clicked BUY, only to discover as a Prime member I could read it free! This was my first time taking advantage of the lending library and I am eager to try it again next month.
I received a copy of Before the Fall by Noah Hawley at BEA and after hearing a narration sample and reading some blogger reviews I decided to grab an audiobook. I switched back and forth between the two before listening completely.
I grabbed In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware on audio when we chose it as Caffeinated Book Club June book of the month . Ironically, I had recently finished The Woman in Cabin 10 Ware’s newest release. I loved it and was excited to see how this story unfolded. Narrated by Imogen Church, In a Dark, Dark Wood shared a twisted psychological thriller that held me captive.
Of late I have had an appetite for thriller novels and today I am sharing a review of the audiobook I Let You Go written by Clare Mackintosh and narrated by Nicola Barber and Steven Crossley. What started out with tears soon grabbed hold of me as the twists and turns in this psychological thriller grabbed me and would not let go.
I’m Thinking of Ending Things by Iain Reid is a unique psychological thriller that will either blow your mind or leaving you scratching your head. It draws you in, sets you on edge and despite moments of utter boredom you cannot seem to set it down.
I am always on the lookout for a good criminal thriller and It Takes One by Kate Kessler promised to deliver thrills, secrets and murder. It Takes One offered an interesting protagonist, an intriguing case and shed light on the “ins and outs” of small-town mentality. The first novel in the Audrey Harte series, I look forward to more cases and adventures with this snarky, strong woman.
Whispers from the Dead by Karen Ann Hopkins is the second book in the Serenity’s Plain Secrets.This is a mystery series set against the backdrop of Amish country. Whispers of the Dead offered a unique mystery with plenty of twists and a continuation of the slow burning romance that began in Lamb to the Slaughter.
Admiral by Sean Danker is the first in the Evagardian series. The Admiral is a science fiction military series set in deep space and it lured me with its promise of mystery. Danker delivered a first personal tale reminiscent of the Martian with an mysterious narrator and impending doom.
