About the Book: HAZARDOUS HOMECOMING

Witnessing a prison break, FBI agent Julianne Martinez is within seconds of death…before she’s rescued by the one man she thought she’d never see again. She’d know her long-ago love, Brody Kenner, anywhere, even with a sheriff star on his chest. Years ago she left Texas and Brody, and had no plans of returning…until the trail of a missing agent brought her home to both. Brody won’t let her investigation proceed without him, and he needs her and her K-9 dog to track his escaped prisoner. But partnering with Julianne to solve two cases only leads to danger when the hunted becomes the hunter. This is a mission that cannot fail…because Brody lost Julianne once, and he won’t lose her again. Continue reading “Sheriff (Classified K-9 Unit #2) by Laura Scott, Callie Beaulieu (Narrator)”

The rating, ideas and opinions shared are my own. Where it fits, I will also include comments and reactions from my grandchildren, ages 3 and almost 6.

Lady in the Lake Laura by Lippman, Susan Bennett (Narrator)

As I read this book, I was not sure if I would enjoy the style it is written in. Madeleine, Maddie, Schwartz is the main character in this story and it is basically told from her POV. She narrates a chapter of this mystery, then the next chapter is told from the POV of one of the characters we met in the previous chapter. Sometimes we find out what they were thinking, sometimes they share a secret. I wasn’t sure if I liked it or not, actually to be honest, I was a bit confused to begin with. Once I got used to the style, and listened to a few chapters again, I really enjoyed it and thought it brought some realism to the story.
