Tumbledown (Desolation Point Tumbledown #2) – Cari Hunter & Nicola Victoria Vincent (narrator)

4.5* - Maybe it wasn’t such a clever idea to listen to Tumbledown straight after Desolation Point since now I miss Sarah and Alex. Part of me would hate being friends with them IRL because I would worry about them incessantly. Another part of me, however, would love it because they’re such great characters. They’re … Continue reading Tumbledown (Desolation Point Tumbledown #2) – Cari Hunter & Nicola Victoria Vincent (narrator)

Desolation Point (Desolation Point Tumbledown #1) – Cari Hunter & Nicola Victoria Vincent (narrator)

4.5* - After a rather emotional time with E. J. Noyes’ Ask Me Again, I needed a change of pace. So yeah, a story about being hunted by white supremacists in the wilderness didn’t sound traumatic at all. And it turned out to be a really good choice. After a drunk driver shattered her life, … Continue reading Desolation Point (Desolation Point Tumbledown #1) – Cari Hunter & Nicola Victoria Vincent (narrator)

Huntress – A.E. Radley & Rebecca McKernan (narrator)

Due to a series of bad decisions and mistrust of police, Amy and her best friend Kerry find themselves on the run. Amy is a brilliant twenty-five-year-old woman who is so scared of failure that she never quit her student job at a motorway service station. She's also very naive and trusting in a rather … Continue reading Huntress – A.E. Radley & Rebecca McKernan (narrator)

Dirt Nap (Curtis and Reynolds #2) – Carolyn Elizabeth

This book is making me very happy! I was looking forward to it, and I’ve written not long ago about second novels sometimes being a little (or more) disappointing because they’re really hard on authors. Dirt Nap escaped that curse beautifully. It has everything I loved in Gallows Humor, only better. First of all, it … Continue reading Dirt Nap (Curtis and Reynolds #2) – Carolyn Elizabeth

Chasing Shadows – Lila Bruce

4.5* Lila Bruce is the queen of opening paragraphs. I mean, seriously, I haven't read all her books yet, but the opening of Little Lies was excellent, the start of Love Bites was hilarious, and here's how Chasing Shadows begins: "For a dead woman, Loralyn Baker looked pretty damned good". If that first sentence doesn't … Continue reading Chasing Shadows – Lila Bruce

Grave Decisions: A Detective Sophie Whitton Story – Claire Highton-Stevenson

Grave Decisions is the second Detective Sophie Whitton novel, and a very solid sequel to The Doll Maker, which should definitely be read first. Still reeling from the Doll Maker case, DI Sophie Whitton and her partner DS Dale Saint investigate the murder of Anita Simmons, whose body was found on top of someone else's … Continue reading Grave Decisions: A Detective Sophie Whitton Story – Claire Highton-Stevenson

On a LARP / Zero Sum Game / Say Her Name – Stefani Deoul

You know how sometimes a book comes out and it’s part of a series so instead of reading a single new book you kinda go back in time and read the previous ones too and you’re suddenly discovering a whole new world? That’s what happened to me here and it’s more than a little exhilarating. … Continue reading On a LARP / Zero Sum Game / Say Her Name – Stefani Deoul

Gallows Humor (Curtis and Reynolds #1) – Carolyn Elizabeth

One of my favourite things as a reader is discovering new (to me) authors. Another is when a debut novel is so good it’s hard to believe it’s a debut. I got both with this book. Corey Curtis doesn’t fluster easily. She’s very good at her job as an Autopsy Services Coordinator at Jackson City … Continue reading Gallows Humor (Curtis and Reynolds #1) – Carolyn Elizabeth

Little Lies – Lila Bruce & Tia Rider Sorensen (narrator)

Wow, this book hits the ground running… When she goes to the bank to deposit money that morning, little does Lia know that the pretty woman she has noticed a few times lately at her favourite coffee place is there too. She doesn’t know either that she is going to get shot by bank robbers … Continue reading Little Lies – Lila Bruce & Tia Rider Sorensen (narrator)
