This was my first Lisa Jackson book and I really enjoyed it. It was fast moving, had a good plot and I connected with the characters. What I found most frightening is that a nut job, serial killer is walking among the public and no one is the wiser. There are actually two different stories going on surrounding the brutal killings and parts of the story are told from inside the mind of the killer. A little romance mixed with suspense is always fun and in this case dangerous. At the end of the book our killer is still on the loose and none of the detectives nor the FBI can figured out the strange clues he is leaving behind.
I will definitely be reading on in this series and am very interested in how many of the characters are brought back in the next book. Alan Nebelthau does an excellent job narrating. No weird voices or dialects except for maybe the killer who he makes very creepy.
A very spiritual read that I would have probably liked better if I had known the characters in the series better.
This was a very heart wrenching book based on a true story of love, loss and a journey of the heart.
A 3.5 for me because the ending kind of went flat. Quite a few cute parts and funny characters but I think if I knew them better it would have been a more enjoyable read. Comming in in the middle of a series can be tricky that way. A well rounded story about what starts out as harmless pranks turns into a murder investigation. A small town, family and church oriented Christmas story. Skunks and bunnies and snakes, Oh No! Believable characters and good narration kept it going for me.
A light murder mystery surrounded by the custody of a child. Not really a Christmas book but it was happening around the Holiday Season. A Mother-in-Law takes on the responsibility of protecting her granddaughter from her Mother who has less that any moral compass when it comes to the welfare of her child. When the Mother is found murdered everyone involved in the sweet child's life becomes a suspect.
Callahan Garity, her aunt, is a retired PD officer and private detective so understandably she is on the case to clear her family and protect her niece. Corruption and unsolved murders start cropping up while she is conducting her investigation. A pretty good mystery with real characters. Hillary Huber's good narration added to the story and took it from a 3 to a 4 for me.
A very cute novella about a family that has a lot of work to do to get back to what used to be a loving, supportive connection. A bah humbug elf is assigned to help but does not have any hope of making it happen. A great Christmas lesson of how shedding all of our gadgets, that we think we can't live without, and getting back to basics. Sometimes the Christmas spirit can be found in the strangest places. This would make a cute Hallmark movie and is a good family car listen.
A fun mystery that had a good story and believable characters. Abby is a no nonsense girl who has a gift that she yields with conscience and integrity. She tends to shy away from any interaction with police cases because of doubt and implication, however, on a blind date she is mistakenly sucked into a conversation about a current missing child case. A week after the date she finds out that her mystery man is a police detective and the game is on when one of her clients ends up dead.
This was a cute cozy that kept my interest and I was happy to get back to. The narration went perfect with her character and I will look for more in this series for a feel good fix.
A good court drama that has several different threads that are part of the same line of corruption that leads deep into the cartel and police dept. After the death of a young escort her handler contacts her attorney to defend him against false charges brought against him in the case of her death.
I always enjoy Michael Connelly's writing, this is my first in the Mickey Haller series and I can understand why people like it so much. Great characters, fast pace and excellent narration will bring me back for more in this series.
A fantastical YA about a girl that comes of age, runs away from an arranged marriage, loses her father and moves to Napa Valley, CA (Wine Country). A cute magical short that is a bit far fetched but a nice story for tweens to YA.
Twenty-five years ago three young men made a decision that would forever change their lives. Now some old debts are to be paid back the hard way. Thugs and the mob are coming out of the woodwork now that some old rumors are being revisited surrounding a million dollar heist. Friends are not to be trusted and enemies may just save the day before all is said and done. A fast paced well written story topped off with good narration.
This book was a happy surprise, good, believable characters, and a good mystery mixed with a bit of paranormal. A tattoo artist along with some old friends try to find a serial killer through some unorthodox methods of tattooing and ghosts. I will look for more books from this author.
