Mini-Reviews: The Book of Candlelight, Ink & Shadows (#3 and #4 in the Secret, Book & Scone Society) #BookReview #Audiobook #FinishTheSeries2022 #2022AudiobookChallenge

Secret, Book & Scone Society is a wonderful cozy mystery series. If you like cozy mysteries set in or around bookstores, you will love this series. If you enjoy protagonists with interesting jobs or interests, you will love meeting Nora Pennington, a self-styled bibliotherapist. If you enjoy small town stories with some quirky or wounded characters, then I recommend this series.

Stories of Family: The One You’re With by Lauren K. Denton, This is Us by Helen McGinn #BookReview #Audiobook

I enjoy books about family and friendship. Both of these books deal with family upheaval and how they deal with it. There is also an aspect of friendship and community in both stories.

Deadly Alaskan Pursuit: Alaskan Rescue by Terri Reed, Wilderness Defender by Maggie K. Black #BookReview #Audiobook @HarperAudio

Alaskan Rescue and Wilderness Defender are books #1 and #2 in the Alaska K-9 Unit series. Both of these stories were recently published together as an audiobook: Deadly Alaskan Pursuit. 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.

Three Thriller Reviews: Stay Awake by Megan Goldin, Wrong Place, Wrong Time by Gillian McAllister & 56 Days by Catherine Ryan Howard #BookReview #Audiobook #2022AudiobookChallenge @megangoldin @GillianMAuthor @cathryanhoward @HarperCollinsCa @HarperAudio @MacmillanAudio @BlackstoneAudio @StMartinsPress

I enjoy a good thriller and when I find one with a different premise, I want to snuggle down and see where the author is going to take me. Well, these three all satisfied that hunger. All of these stories had plots that were different from others I had read and pulled me into the stories, albeit not right from the start. It took a bit to become immersed in the story, but I definitely recommend them all. I also did read/listens with all of them and recommend either format depending upon your preference.

Family & Romance: You Only Live Once by Maxine Morrey, It’s Better This Way by Debbie Macomber #BookReview

Two delightful stories about families, and romance. Lots of roadblocks, issues to deal with and many emotions. I recommend both You Only Live Once and It’s Better This Way.

Christmas Book Reviews: The Christmas Dress, The Christmas Wishing Tree #BookReview #Audiobook #2022AudiobookChallenge #BeatTheBacklist2022

I did my annual Christmas in July readathon, but had a few books left to read that I had already downloaded. I think I left two of the best until the end. Both of these books were highly enjoyable with great stories of New Beginnings and Christmas Magic.

Old Friends Reunited, Sisters Behaving Badly by Maddie Please #BookReviews @BoldwoodBooks @MaddiePlease1

I absolutely love reading books by Maddie Please. They are uplifting, funny, full of friendship, some romance and new beginnings. I love that her characters are older, sending the message that life does not end at 60.
