Audio Review: Boundary Waters by William Kent Krueger

Audio Review: Boundary Waters by William Kent Krueger

    Cork O’Connor is contacted by Willie Raye to help find his daughter, Shiloh, who’s disappeared. She’s a famous Country & Western singer who apparently has chosen to remove herself into the Quetico-Superior Wilderness for some self reflection. The Feds have also inserted themselves into the search because they believe she now remembers information about her mother’s murder 13-years ago. Unfortunately, there are other dark forces at play as others are out to find and kill her.   As with the first story, the setting is an important element of the story and Indian lore is featured prominently in every aspect of the plot. The complexity of the boundary waters (between the Minnesota and Canadian borders) added to the mystery and sense of isolation. […]

             I had no idea what to expect, so The Chemist was an awesome surprise. I loved it from beginning to end. If it were a book, it would be a page turner but since I was listening, I wanted to listen ALL THE TIME. There were so many things to love! It had great characters, SCIENCE, action / adventure, romance, humor and dogs! The problem with listening is not knowing how to spell anyone’s name and not being able to highlight the humorous quotes or make notes in the way I would with an ebook. I think it takes longer, too, since I can read faster but it is such a pleasure. Ellen Archer was great at capturing the emotion […]

read it, track it is a way for me to track books for my reading challenges and the reviews will be super short. Anne reviewed Any Time, Any Place already so I’ll keep my review short. The second book in Probst’s Billionaire Builders focuses Dalton Pierce, the brother of the hero of the first book, Everywhere and Every Way. Dalton spent some time away from the family business and home in California but after the events in the first book he came home and now he trying to show his brothers he is not the flake they think he is. He’s serious about his wood work but never serious about a relationship with the ladies. Raven is connected with the Pierce brothers from the past but they […]


Audio Review: Three Wishes by Liane Moriarty

Audio Review: Three Wishes by Liane Moriarty

Posted January 30, 2017 by Jonetta in Book Review | 3 Comments

    This is the story of the Kettle sisters, Gemma, Lyn and Cat, 33-years old triplets (two are identical twins) and a look at their lives at a pivotal moment in time. It’s told in each of their voices, transitioning from past to present as they each face a critical issue. The dynamics of how they interact with each other is also an important aspect of their story.   I very much enjoyed this story as the character development was outstanding. I felt I truly knew each sister and how they would behave at every juncture. The transitions to the past were timely as they aptly provided context for the three women’s present characterizations. The twists in their stories, especially Gemma’s, were stunning, catching […]

      This is the third in The Black Knights Inc. series  and the second I’ve listened to audio.  Rev It Up is my favorite so far. Perhaps, because I know the characters and world better. The stories don’t include very much about motorcycles, not really.  Other than flashbacks, there isn’t much about their missions. The stories are the romance and happenings in their day-to-day lives or the blow back of missions onto personal lives.. The bad guys from a previous operation are out to kill them. It’s personal. So the BKI team is on alert. They need to catch the bad guys before they kill any of their own. I appreciate their caution and intelligence; they don’t make too many mistakes. Jake has just […]

Of Silk and Steam brings the events that has been building since book 1, Kiss of Steel are finally brought to a close. Bec McMaster writes great characters and her couples are always fun to see go through their issues to get to their HEA. This time she brings us a couple that are frenemies of a sort. Mina does not like Leo Barrons because his father killed her father. Yeah, that’s going to be a big issue to get over in order for them to get friendly with each other. Leo has wanted Mina for his own for a few years and has been patient in his “chase” of her. Of course it pays off and seeing Leo melt Mina’s chilly exterior was both fun […]


Eleventh Grave in Moonlight by Darynda Jones

I listened to Eleventh Grave in Moonlight in one sitting! Charley usually has a few “irons in the fire” and she really juggled few more issues this time around. There were a few mysteries, some she was paid to figure out since she’s a P.I. and all. (One can’t live off of just coffee, although I think if someone could it would be Charley and Cookie.) The other mysteries were a little more personal, which is the case with all the books in Darynda Jones’ Charley Davidson series but they’ve never crossed over Charley’s job as much as the case of the Frosts aka the elderly couple that kidnapped baby Reyes all those years ago just to give him to the master, Earl Walker. About […]
