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

Peppermint Kiss – Marian Snowe

4.5* The opening of this Christmas novella is definitely in my top 10. It sets the tone from the start, and I knew I'd laugh and be happy by the end of the story (which was kind of a given since it's a Christmas novella but still, I like it when stories keep their promises). … Continue reading Peppermint Kiss – Marian Snowe

Too Late… I Love You – Kiki Archer & Ella Lynch (narrator)

This is my second book (audiobook, actually) by Kiki Archer, and it was as delightful as the first one (But She Is My Student). Connie Parker's life revolves around her three-year-old son Noah, a fact her boyfriend Karl fails to understand. Yet, while she loves her son more than anything, she's sometimes bored with her … Continue reading Too Late… I Love You – Kiki Archer & Ella Lynch (narrator)

Big Girl Pill – K.D. Williamson

4.5 * Nina was Maya’s best friend, the most important person in her life – with her brothers –, until they slept together one drunken night in their last year of college. Nina, a supposedly straight girl, had complained about a bad experience with a woman (it's college, right?) and Maya had offered to show … Continue reading Big Girl Pill – K.D. Williamson

The Good Girl – Madeleine Taylor

4.5* While I've been reading more and more erotica lately, I'm by no means an expert, and I've been very pleasantly surprised by how varied a genre it is. In the last, say, three months, I read The X Ingredient by Roslyn Sinclair, Party of Three by Sandy Lowe (the audiobook version, perfectly narrated by … Continue reading The Good Girl – Madeleine Taylor

The Road Ahead (Around the World #1) – A.E. Radley & Ella Lynch (narrator)

I love how narration can elevate (I’m not sure it’s the right word…) a book. I really liked The Road Ahead when I read it, but listening to it was even better. There’s nothing obviously extraordinary about Ella Lynch’s narration, but it’s perfect for the story. The things that had mildly bothered me in book … Continue reading The Road Ahead (Around the World #1) – A.E. Radley & Ella Lynch (narrator)

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)
