When the body of a young woman is found in her own backyard, a week after her disappearance, evidence leads investigators to a chilling conclusion. She is not the first victim of a serial killer no one knew existed. She most definitely is not the last. FBI Special Agent Tess Winnett joins the local detectives assigned to the case and searches for answers in the intriguing investigation that offers a plethora of forensic evidence, yet no viable leads. When another body is found, the search intensifies, and details about the killer's unusual signature emerge.
An excellent story! Never a dull moment. Fabulous characters! Great performance! I absolutely loved it!!
Tessa Lamar, a Southern girl with a crazy family and a brand new college degree, wants nothing more than for her life to finally start. When her uncle dies unexpectedly, she inherits more than his old truck. As lifetimes of family secrets send her carefully planned world into a tailspin, she realizes nothing will ever be the same.
I loved the premise of this tale and found the story quite interesting. My only issue was I found the narrator’s (very authentic) accent grating and it made the main character’s insecurities come across as whining.
Danny North knew from early childhood that his family was different - and that he was different from them. While his cousins were learning how to create the things that commoners called fairies, ghosts, golems, trolls, werewolves, and other such miracles that were the heritage of the North family, Danny worried that he would never show a talent, never form an "outself"....
Interesting story, great characters, plus action and adventure...what more could you want? Fabulous narration!
Sixteen-year-old Kira Moore is a zero, someone who can't read thoughts or be read by others. Zeros are outcasts who can't be trusted, leaving her no chance with Raf, a regular mind reader and the best friend she secretly loves. When she accidentally controls Raf's mind and nearly kills him, Kira tries to hide her frightening new ability from her family and an increasingly suspicious Raf.
Fabulous story! Imagine a world where the fact that you can’t read minds makes you unusual. And then it really gets interesting!
There will come a day when love will mark you as a traitor. In a society where emotions are nothing and function is everything, Avlyn Lark is just trying to blend in. She's lucky to be alive, unlike her twin brother Ben who died when they were four. And she's lucky to have been taken from her biological parents and assigned to a Level Two family. But mastering her emotions? That's a problem, especially when a rebel bomb blows up a building right in front of her. Then on Configuration Day, Avlyn's official transition to adulthood, she starts seeing strange visions. And instead of being placed with a low-level tech company where she could hide away, she's hired by Genesis Technologies, the government firm that monitors every citizen. Now, instead of blending in, Avlyn fears she'll be exposed for what she really is.
Well written and performed story of a young lady who decides not to become just another compliant citizen of her savage post-apocalyptic government. Evelyn discovers that she not only has the will, but also a unique ability that, if she can stay alive, may enable her to help save humanity from a second apocalypse. Great action packed adventure!
Sixteen-year-old Amel arrived at Dragon School just like everyone else - with a dream to ride dragons and join the Dominion Dragon Riders. But Amel has a crippled leg, and Dragon School training is grueling. Before she can even become an initiate, she must complete her First Flight on a dragon. Can Amel survive First Flight and become a Dragon School initiate, or will her dreams dash on the rocks below?
Very interesting start to a story about a girl with a crippled leg trying to become a dragon rider. In this short start to a six book story, Amel has just arrived at Dragon School and is trying to become an initiate by surviving her First Flight. The characters are very relatable, the dragons are awesome, and the story is interesting, engaging, and at times humorous.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
Diverse, dark-humored, and deliciously bite-sized, this compelling collection of 12 short stories by JT Lawrence include: "Escape" - A story about about a suicidal baby who knows he was born into the wrong life, and has to get creative to correct the mistake, much to his mother's horror; "The Itch" - An intense, uncontrollable, unexplainable itch lands the protagonist in a mental institution.
This is a great collection of short stories. Each story is enjoyable and almost all have a surprise twist at the end that makes them even better. I highly recommend it!

When a suicidal client seeks her help, Dr. Angela Blackwell cannot turn him away, despite the fact that he isn’t seeking the kind of help she normally provides her clients. The man, who won’t fully identify himself, wants the distinguished psychologist to stand witness after his planned death in six months’ time, ensuring his wife will not be charged as an accessory or be hindered from collecting the death benefit he carefully provisioned for her. He calls himself DJ and won’t willingly share anything about his past.
This is not like the other Leslie Wolfe mystery/thrillers I’ve read. It is not action packed and a dead bod (or two) is what is desperately trying to be avoided. That said, it is very well written (and performed) and if you can hang on through the setup, has a heartwarming ending with an astonishing twist. It is a very powerful story that will make you think. Leslie has highlighted a very real current problem of which there should be more public awareness.
Alex Cave is leisurely cruising his sailboat in Puget Sound when a hysterical voice on an oil tanker begs for help on the radio! He sees the behemoth ship through his binoculars an instant before it is engulfed in a brilliant flash of white light, and when he responds to the mayday and arrives before the Coast Guard, he discovers the crew and 80,000 tons of crude oil have mysteriously vanished without a trace!
A frighteningly plausible crisis with an out of this world explanation. Great action and twists to keep you entertained along the way. Well worth a listen!

Biochemistry whiz Everly Jax wants one thing: to know who her parents are. Raised with other repo kids in InKubator 9, she has pinned her hopes on Reunion Day, the annual event where 16-year-olds can meet or reunite with their parents. When her Reunion Day goes horribly awry, she and her pregnant friend Halla escape the Kube, accompanied by their friend Wyck who has his own reasons for leaving.
Great characters in a post apocalyptic world. Their story is interesting with lots of action and twists. I’m looking forward to the next one.
