Reviews of Books Set in Libraries: The Woman in the Library by Sulari Gentill, Elodie’s Library of Second Chances by Rebecca Raisin #BookReview #Audiobook #2022AudiobookChallenge

I love books set in libraries, bookshops, or publishing houses. If a book is about an author, editor, or even narrator, count me in. The Woman in the Library and Elodie’s Library of Second Chances definitely called to me. One a mystery, the other an uplifting story of friendship and new beginnings, they were everything I was hoping for.

3 Mini-Reviews of Crime Thrillers: Long Gone by Joanna Schaffhausen, Reckoning by Catherine Coulter, Shutter by Ramona Emerson #BookReview #Audiobook #2022AudiobookChallenge @HarperAudio

These three crime thrillers were all enjoyable, but very different from one another. You have one dealing with a police detective (Long Gone), another that features the FBI (Reckoning) and the final book is about a forensic photographer (Shutter). The first two are from series I enjoy and the last a debut by the author, and one I hope will become a series. Read on for my reviews.

Historical Mysteries/Crime: The Red Palace, A Rip Through Time #BookReview #Audiobook #2022AudiobookChallenge

It’s now secret that I enjoy a good mystery and these two, The Red Palace and A Rip Through Time definitely fit that bill. These are historical mysteries, one set in Korea in 1758 and the other in Scotland in 1869. Although very different from one another, they were both excellent stories that I recommend.

There are nine stories in this series at this time, and I am looking forward to reading or listening to more of them. Thanks to HarperAudio for my copy of this audiobook upon request. The rating and opinions shared are my own.

Robert Brynda’s Detective Erika Foster Series 5 & 6: Cold Blood & Deadly Secrets #BookReview #Audiobook #BeatTheBacklist2022 #FinishingTheSeries2022 #2022AudiobookChallenge @Bookouture

With Robert Byrndza’s long awaited 7th book in his Detective Erika Foster series coming out this summer, I wanted to catch up on this series. I recently purchased several audiobooks in this series during an audible sale, so I was able to do a read/listen, however, I basically ended up just listening to Jan Cramer’s wonderful narration.

Police Procedural/Crime Thrillers: Dark Water & Last Breath by Robert Bryndza #BookReview #Audiobook #2022AudiobookChallenge #FinishingTheSeries2022 #BeatTheBacklist2022 @Bookouture

I am trying to clear up my backlist, as well as finish some series that I have started. I am enjoying listening to Robert Bryndza’s Detective Erika Foster series. I read the first two and enjoyed them, but I guess I just got sidetracked by other books and recommendations. I am so happy that I got back to Erika and her team. Below, I have reviewed #3 and #4 in this series with three more to enjoy.

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.
