3 Kate Burkholder Novellas: A Hidden Secret, Seeds of Deception & In Dark Company #BookReview #Audiobook

A Simple Murder: A Kate Burkholder Short Story Collection

A Simple Murder: A Kate Burkholder Short Story Collection by Linda Castillo, Kathleen McInerney (Narrator)

Published February 9th 2021 by Macmillan Audio

A Simple Murder is an anthology made up of several of Linda Castillo’s short stories/novellas in the Kate Burkholder series. It contains 6 of these short stories, but only three that I had not read or listened to. I have included my reviews of those three. I have listened to other books in this series narrated by Kathleen McInerney, and once again, she does a wonderful job with her narration of this audiobook. She is the voice of Kate Burkholder to me.

Two K-9 Thrillers: Before It’s Too Late, Storm Rising #AudiobookReview

I have been enjoying the FBI K-9 series by Sara Driscoll. I have been listening to the audiobooks from my library and they are well done by Recorded Books. Angela Dawe is the narrator for this series and I enjoy her performances a lot. Her smooth reading voice perfectly fits this chilling story. She gives each of the characters their own distinct, appealing voices including the males. I often have an issue with female narrators doing male voices, but this was not problem with Dawe’s lower range for the males in the story. I found her reading was well-paced and very enjoyable. Scroll down for my reviews of the second and third book in this series.
