I really enjoyed Hidden, book one in the Deep Ops series featuring an off the grid misfit crew of FBI Agents and their pets, so picking up the novella Taken was an easy decision. Suspense, humor and a second chance romance await you.
Spring Thaw is part of an anthology of short whodunits by Lauren Carr, but for this post I am only reviewing the Chris Matheson Cold Case Mystery, Spring Thaw. A clever whodunit regarding the death of a clergy.
Narrated by Michelle Dockrey, Beneath the Sugar Sky By Seanan McGuire is the third novella in the Wayward Children fantasy series.
Kingdom of Needle and Bone by Mira Grant offered a relevant, thought-provoking tale with bone-chilling realism. Despite being a novella, the tale was rich with detail and held me captive. Ms. Grant I need more….
Diamond Fire by Ilona Andrews is a novella in their Hidden Legacy series and while I can’t hide my disappointment that this was only a novella I will tell you this was amazing! Despite the page count the Andrews delivered a full story filled with a mystery, snark and glimmers of what is to come as Rogan takes Nevada home to meet Momma.
A Bone to Pick by Melinda Leigh is the second novella in the Widow’s Island mystery suspense series written with author Kendra Elliot. We are back on Widow’s Island and this time the focus is on Deputy Tessa Black. When an artistic newcomer is found dead, Tessa along with the help of Park Ranger Logan Wilde search for a murderer on the island.
Set on Widow’s Island off the Pacific Northwest. Close to the Bone by Kendra Elliot is the first of four scheduled novellas. Each book contains a murder-mystery and there is an overall arc about a missing person from twenty years ago. From the characters to the island history I quickly slipped into this series.
The Good Luck Sister by Jill Shalvis shared the second chance romance of Tily and Dylan after being apart for ten years. A mischevious pup, new beginnings, and updates from the previous character made this sweet romance a fun read.
I grabbed Two Tales of the Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne in my quest to listen to EVERY DANG THING in the Iron Druid Chronicles. Those who remember I was deathly ill in January and over the course of twelve days devoured the series, novellas, and spinoffs on audio. Short or long Hearne knows how to spin a tale and I cannot get enough of this world and its characters.
