This was a feel good listen for the beach with an enjoyable, somewhat predictable plot. It's great to come across a really good, easy read for those wonderful mindless summer days. Heads up for some five alarm, steamy love/lust scenes that may require headphones in mixed company.
Somewhat tortured characters who's complex personalities are intertwined from 1931 to 1938. The time period is depicted beautifully and Seaview, RI almost becomes a character in itself. Heartsick lovers Nick and Lily are separated because of tragic events, secrets and guilt. Time, revelation, confessions and true love may be just enough to bring them back into each others arms and lives. Or......, will they just be blown away?
Kathleen Mclnerney did an excellent job bringing all the different characters to life. Her pace and timing definitely added to the story, especially the turbulent ending. I am looking forward to listening to her narration of, "The Nine Lives of Christmas", in December.
A fun story with a good mystery that kept me changing my suspicions and suspects throughout. Ceepack is a retired MP turned small seaside town policeman who has a very strict code of right and wrong coupled with an extremely mellow personality. Ceepack and his summer apprentice must get to the bottom of an ever changing murder investigation that has too many odd suspects. A fun and light read that was good from the very start. This is the first in a series that I will definitely be revisiting.
Jeff Woodman did an excellent job narrating, his voices were distinct and very believable. Surprisingly good combination of a well written story and artful narration.
This was not my favorite in the series so far. It seemed like it took too long to get to the actual plot, and became tedious with far too many new, inconsequential characters added too quickly. I think think that a quarter of the story and several characters could have been left out. The last few chapters were full of updates and information about the characters that could have been avoided if the story had flowed correctly. I hope the wonderful pacing that made the first two books so good is reesablished in the next book. Not a bad Septimus adventure just, for me, a little too jumbled and watered down with to many extraneous events and characters. Onto the next....
I am very glad to have come across this series. This was my first book by C.J. Box and in the, Joe Picket, series. This book stood on its own and made me want to read more in this series.
Even though the story is set in Wyoming and follows a game warden, it is not anything like the Walt Longmire series. I enjoyed it very much, it was original, informative and had great characters that I'm looking forward to getting to know better.
David Handler did an excellent job with the narration. I have listened to him before but this is his niche, his voice fits Joe Picket perfectly.
This was a free give away, I'm glad I did not spend money on it. I have enjoyed all of the Molly Harper books that I have read, however, for me, this one was not written at the same caliber. It is a short story with too much of the first half over-filled with the characters in the series introductions. If I had not read the first book in the series it would have been too many characters to keep straight. There are some funny moments but just not as "merry" as I would have liked for a Christmas read.
Amanda Ronconi always does a spectacular job narrating, just not much of that feel good, funny writing that she can spin into the story so well.
Molly Harper does it again, this is the first book in the, Half Moon Bay, series and I think one of her best, she always makes me laugh. Miranda, our main character, has a talent for getting herself into the most unbelievable situations. She takes her continuous mishaps all in stride and just counts on some crazy thing happening in every situation, one of the reasons she always carries $20 and her drivers license in her bra.
Miranda works for a service that transports vampires, hires services for them and just about any other duty that is better done during the day. Miranda's first assignment is to transport a very private, stanch man from his home to Half Moon Bay. The antics that ensue from the very beginning are nothing short of hilarious and unfortunate for her passenger. As time goes by and he see's that Miranda is a jinxed soul he starts to find it entertaining and that she is providing him with some much over do surprises.
Molly Harper and Amanda Ronconi go together like peanut butter and jelly, one without the other just isn't the same. Amanda definitely brings the perfect humorous voice to Molly's tongue in cheek, witty writing. One not to miss if you enjoy this genre.
Eli, The (Spirit Thief)Wizard, Josef possessor of the Heart of War's Magic Sword, Miranda the Mystic Spiritualist and her Ghost Dog, Niko a Demon Seed who has not become a demon yet, The White Lady and many other creative characters make up this enchanting mystical story.
Eli is a wizard who can borrow the spirit of any thing on earth except people. He is quite charming and has the essence of a bright light that makes him irresistible to all things, you could even say they are enamored by him. The Mystic Council have a bounty on his head for not becoming a member, they have no control over him, so comically his number one game is to see how high he can get his own bounty. At the start of the story he kidnaps The King, and its a good thing because The Kings life was in danger, his brother wants the throne and has amassed a group of miscreants to help him to obtain it. What started out as a simple kidnapping turns into a rescue mission that will band together some unlikely adversaries. It was light with a splash of dark towards the end.
Surprisingly, fresh and original, I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it is perpetually ever changing and captured my interest from the opening chapter. Luke Daniels as always, did an exceptional job of narrating, he also narrates the Druid Chronicles, It was like saying hello to an old friend. I'm hooked on Eli and his interesting comrades, I look forward to reading the rest of this adventurously, clever series.
A small town with a big mystery and a playful ghost. This is the sixth book in "Gus LeGarde", series but it can stand alone. A coming of age tale in 1965 that was well written and the characters were relatable. Gus must find something the ghost is desperate to have discovered, that will lead to her past.
It was fun to step back into a time where transistor radios were new and neighborhoods were safe. Erik Synnestvedt, did a wonderful job with the narration, good voices helped to separate the characters and brought them to life.
I love the Will Trent series, Karen Slaughter created a great multi layered character. Another fast moving thriller with some great detective work that keeps you guessing until the very end.
This was a fantastic read that I found hard to put down. The science was so interesting and exciting, never a dull moment. The main character was brilliant and engineered some of the most ingenious life saving devices. This book never got slow and I could not wait to see what he would come up with next. The storyline had an excellent flow and showed the strength and bravery of the human spirit. R.C. Bray did an outstanding job with the narration and I look forward to reading something else that he has done.
This was an okay book but I think it would make a better movie, it has a lot of shoot em up, action scenes that I would prefer to watch. The beginning had an interesting character driven storyline and then it just fell into lots of guns and gangsters. If you like that kind of thing, you will love this.
