Audio Review & Giveaway: The Sinner by Amanda Stevens

  It’s been almost a year since John Devlin walked away from Amelia Gray to see to his ailing grandfather and then cutoff all communication. Amelia is nursing a broken heart and has accepted a restoration assignment in Ascension, South Carolina to get her out of Charleston for a few months. One day while working in the Seven Gates Cemetery, she is “called” into the adjacent forest and discovers a circled of twelve mortsafes and sees a pair of hands gripping the grates. It’s the body of a young woman and it’s recent. Detective Lucien Kendrick is assigned to the case and he and Amelia have an immediate connection…one she’s not sure is kindred, lust or something else.   I’d never heard of a mortsafe […]

Into the Fire felt more like a start to a new beginning than and ending… I am sorry to say that Into the Fire broke the 5 star record for the Night Prince series for me. Like other fans, I could not wait to get my hands on Vlad’s final book, but something was missing and I cannot put my finger on it. That’s not to say that Into the Fire was not enjoyable, it was. I think the wait and anticipation was too high so the ending of the series was a little anticlimactic. I wish I had taken the time to do a series reread because I went Into the Fire not remembering where we left off with the previous book, Bound by […]


Early review: Etched in Bone by Anne Bishop

Early review: Etched in Bone by Anne Bishop

        Anne’s Review I came to the Others series late, but I’ve loved it since the first book. Marked in Flesh (book 4) was a problem for me, it’s the book just before Etched in Bone. I expected the story to be what it was, generally, without knowing the details. My issue was a slew of new characters which I knew very little and had difficulty with forming a connection to them. Now I understand even less about why they were introduced, since many were not in this next book. So I read on with a bit of trepidation. I’m happy to say Etched in Bone is fabulous. It is a return to beloved characters as a view screen to the world overall. While the story […]

     I’m enjoying the audios in the Black Knights Inc series.  Abby Craden is an easy listen. I do feel as though the character’s voices are running together but this is because there are certain expressions, slang, the author uses for multiple characters. Now those who are together, the guys, it makes some sense.  But the women don’t all know each other before they “join” the group or even after, so it bugs me when they use it.. Eve is Becky’s best friend and was involved with her brother, Bill, when she was young. She certainly has not had things too easy in an emotional sense, but she is learning and has come into her own. She wants to see if she can start fresh with […]


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 […]
