    After the death of her parents, chasing tornadoes is the only thing that makes Lauren feel alive. Each storm gives her the adrenaline rush she craves, but it can't make her forget Tanner, the country boy she left behind in Oklahoma. When a funeral brings Lauren back to Sunset Plains, she decides to face Tanner in a desperate attempt to finally let go of her past.

    Twisters and Textbooks: Lindzee Armstrong


    A short sweet and clean second chance romance and adventure. Our main characters were high school sweethearts until Lauren's parents were killed by a tornado. She ran trying to escape the pain and leaving Tanner heartbroken. Four years have passed and they meet again. The story roars on from there. I enjoyed it very much.


    The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed by Stacey Glemboski.

    Welcome to the village of Arroyo Loco, populated with quirky new friends, irrepressible pets, and enough mysteries to keep everyone busy.

    Fire at Will's
    An Estela Nogales Mystery

    This is a fast paced cozy murder mystery that features a HOA with many different types of people. There are secrets that might point a guilty finger at any of them. A touch of humor and some amateur detective work brings it all together...... almost, but it left the way open for more books and mysteries to solve.

    The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Hilarie Mukavitz made this an easy listen.

    Audra Tadlock is bored with life in Hopeville, Texas, until she befriends handsome photographer McKenna Smith, who brings more excitement than she bargains for. Being kidnapped and traipsing across the countryside looking for her thought-to-be-dead brother is not the adventure she had in mind. Nothing is as important to McKenna as receiving a pardon from the State of Texas. His luck changes for the better when he recognizes Audra, the twin sister of the man who shot him. But falling in love with the one person who can exonerate Smith may prevent him from winning his freedom. Will the search for Audra's brother bring him the independence he desires or will she imprison his heart with her love?

    The Call of the Wild is a short adventure novel by Jack London published in 1903 and set in Yukon, Canada during the 1890s Klondike Gold Rush, when strong sled dogs were in high demand. The central character of the novel is a dog named Buck. The story opens at a ranch in Santa Clara Valley, California, when Buck is stolen from his home and sold into service as a sled dog in Alaska. He becomes progressively feral in the harsh environment, where he is forced to fight to survive and dominate other dogs. By the end, he sheds the veneer of civilization, and relies on primordial instinct and learned experience to emerge as a leader in the wild.

    Joel Rifkin trolled the streets on Manhattan and Long Island under the cover of night searching for a way to ease the intense urges he couldn’t deny. Prostitutes were his targets, and although he allowed some to live, there were many who were much less fortunate. Of all the serial killer audiobooks out there, this one delves into the controversy surrounding the death penalty and discusses whether monsters like Rifkin should be executed or allowed to live their days out in prison.

    Joel Rifkin: The Horrifying & True Story of Joel the Ripper
    The Serial Killer Books, Book 4
    : Jack Rosewood, Rebecca Lo

    Jack Rosewood is back with his next installment of serial killers. This one features Joel Rifkin, who murdered at least 17 prostitutes in New York between 1989 and 1993. There are mini sections that discuss adoptee murderers and longest solitary confinement. Those sections sort of jumped out of left field, but were interesting none the less.

    The narration was well done. Kevin Kollins does an excellent job with this genre.

    Robert Thornhill has returned with his mixture of current events, conspiracy theory woven into his fictional series with Walt Williams and his zany crew of geriatric friends. The listener gets to revisit past characters that again cross Walt's path.

    We are left to ponder on the possibilities of government involvement in weather manipulation and other covert programs, as well as genetic modification of our food supply.

    The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. I will say it again, George Kuch is Walt Williams! Awesome job as Always!!!

    One hundred years ago, Minnie Seamer's death shocked her rural Iowa community. A young farmhand found her body hanging in the barn on a rainy summer morning in 1913. The coroner ruled it a suicide, but distraught family members were not convinced. Was it suicide or was it murder? Seeking Signs, based on actual events, is the story of a young girl's search for answers in the wake of a family tragedy. To solve the mystery of her older sister's puzzling death, 13-year-old Elsie follows tips from a booklet titled The Baum Detective Agency Course.

    I love historical fiction based on actual events. This is a very good book as it uses back story to lead the listener along to its conclusion. The younger sister investigates the suspicious death of her sister. Was it suicide or murder? Listen and draw your conclusion. The setting is well described and customs of the time make you feel as if you are there.

    Oh My!!!

    This is one of the best books I've listened to for a long while. The three main characters, young girls are getting ready for high school. The plot flows continually, in an ever changing way. It does not get lost or bogged down along the way. We get mysteries, historical fiction, coming of age, dysfunctional families, romance / obsession, and even a bit of paranormal. I'm excited to see where the rest of this series goes, as it did leave a bit of a cliff-hanger.

    The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Laura Jennings brought these characters to life!!!
