Crime Stories – MiniReviews: The Hidden One, In Her Tracks, The Coroner #BookReview #Audiobook #2022AudiobookChallenge #BeatTheBacklist2022 @MacmillanAudio @BlackstoneAudio

There are so many good police procedural, crime thriller, and detective series out there that I have several series on the go. Kate Burkholder and Tracy Crosswhite are two of my favourites. Finding them on audiobook is a bonus for me as I can listen while working out in the pool.

#20BooksofSummer2022 Mini-Reviews Deadly Summer, Blazing Summer #BookReview #Audiobook #2022AudiobookChallenge #BeatTheBacklist2022 @DeniseMSwank

Deadly Summer and Blazing Summer are books #7 and #8 in my 20 Books of Summer 2022 Challenge. Although they have “Summer” in the title, it is because of the main characters name. These are mysteries, with Summer Butler working as a PI for a reality television show. They are not quite cozy mysteries, but have a lot of the characteristics. It seems like these might be the only two, but I would love to read more Darling Investigations if the author were to continue the series.

Mini-Reviews for What Matters Most & The Float Plan #BookReview #audiobook #2022AudiobookChallenge @TyndaleHouse @courtney_walsh @MacmillanAudio @TrishDoller

What Matters Most and Float Plan are both stories that deal with grief, forgiveness, and love/romance. Being a widow, I understand the emotions these women are feeling and I loved the honesty and reality of their lives as they deal with them. Both of these audiobooks were so well done, I definitely recommend them.

Catherine Bybee is a new author to me, so when I was offered the opportunity to read and review, When It Falls Apart, I quickly agreed. The synopsis intrigued me, and I enjoyed this book very much. Scroll down for an interview, except, review and Giveaway.

Audiobook Mini-Reviews: The Wednesday Morning Wild Swim, It All Comes Down To This #BookReview #Audiobook #2022AudiobookChallenge

There are sometimes books that I read or listen to that do not fit nicely into any genre. These two are a couple of them. They have some Women’s Fiction components, a bit of a mystery, and some romance. These are the ones I often refer to as Literary Fiction, although many will disagree. Both of these books were provided to me by the publisher upon request. The rating and opinions shared are my own.

#20BooksofSummer2022 Mini-Reviews: The Secrets of Summer House, A Summer of Surprises #BookReview #Audiobook

It seems that many of the books with Summer in the title that I am reading for my 20 Books of Summer Challenge deal with secrets. I have just finished #5 & #6 for this challenge. That is right on schedule for me as July is Christmas in July, so I won’t get too many summery books read during that month. Both of these books were provided to me by the publisher at some point, upon my request. The ratings and opinions shared are my own.

Summer Reads Mini-Reviews: The Summer Place, One Italian Summer #BookReview #Audiobook #20BooksofSummer2022 #2022AudiobookChallenge

I am doing well with my 20 Books of Summer list with books 3 & 4 listened to, enjoyed and reviewed. Scroll down to see what I thought. Both of these books were provided to me by the publisher upon request. The rating and opinions shared are my own. I was also able to get a copy of the audiobook, so listened to them as well as having the ebook to read along when I wanted to do that.

Her Frozen Cry by Carolyn Arnold #BookReview #BlogTour @Bookouture @Carolyn_Arnold

Her Frozen Cry (Detective Amanda Steele #5) by Carolyn Arnold

Published June 9th 2022 by Bookouture

About the Book: The moon shines through the open window, bathing the woman in pale light. Blood-red wine from a shattered glass soaks into the cream blanket beside her, and her dull eyes stare vacantly at the framed photograph in her hand.
