True Colors Series: The White City (1) and The Blue Cloak (5) #BookReview #Audiobook #BeatTheBacklist #2022AudiobookChallenge @TantorAudio

The True Colors series is a great Christian Historical Fiction Series. The stories are based on actual historical events, but with a fictionalized story. The thing I enjoy is many of the events are not well known, so I end up heading out and doing a bit of research on my own each time. The other interesting thing is that each of the books is written by a different author, but they are all well written and follow the same theme. Although there are 12 books in the series, they can be read in any order, as they are all separate stories about different events. I am working my way through this series for my Finish a Series Challenge as well as Beat the Backlist.

Three Mystery/Thrillers/Suspense: The Last Time She Died, Behind the Red Door, Such a Quiet Place #Audiobook #BookReviews

Three audiobooks/ebooks that were all billed as thrillers. I enjoy them all to varying degrees, but found them to be more mystery/suspense than thriller. At one time I received these books from the publishers upon request. The rating and opinions shared are my own.

4 Cozy Mysteries to Enjoy: It’s Beginning To Look a Lot Like Murder, A Pumpkin Spice Killing, Murder Can Haunt Your Handiwork, Death Gone A-Rye #BookReview #Audiobook @ellenbyronla @KensingtonBooks @TantorAudio

If you follow my blog at all, you know I am a cozy mystery lover. I do enjoy a good amateur sleuth, the characters and settings of these stories. This year I also found a couple to match up with my seasonal reading in both Autumn and Christmas books. If you are looking for a good cozy to pick up, see if any of these strike your fancy.

Some Cozy Mysteries to check out: Read or Alive, Deadly Vows, Deadly Ride #BookReview #Audiobook #CozyMystery

August was cozy mystery here at Carla Loves to Read and I spent some time catching up on some series that I had fallen behind on. I will say that although I enjoyed these books, they were not as exciting as I had hoped. They had good mysteries, but I missed the quirkiness I normally enjoy in a cozy mystery. I listened to all of these books using Hoopla through my local library.

Over the last few weeks, I have read a variety of crime thrillers. They are different from one another, but all suspenseful, twisty and thoroughly entertaining. I recommend them all.
