Windmills: Piercehaven 2 was my second incredible read/listen from author Robin Merrill. Living in an area where windmills were built in the recent past and as a former softball coach, I particularly enjoyed the storyline. As in the first book, the story is methodically developed, drawing the reader in. Narrator Rebecca Winder adds greatly to the listening enjoyment with her wide variety of entertaining voices & inflections. Another wonderful Christian read I never anticipated a follow-up to the first book so this was a very pleasant surprise! I was given an Audible copy of this book & am voluntarily reviewing it.

My second read from author Jackson Baer & the final book in An American Family duology was well-written & enjoyable, perhaps even better than the first book. I am so glad I had the I was given an Audible copy of this book & I’m voluntarily reviewing it. Although narrator Dan Carroll’s narration was improved over the first book in the series I remain unimpressed with his vocals, in fact I’d recommend reading the book & not listening to this narrator.

My seventh read from author Sheila Lowe and the sixth book in the Forensic Handwriting Series. Good, well-written mystery that takes off like a jet from an aircraft carrier in the opening pages and never lets up! With every book she writes Lowe continues to sculpt her craft and gets better & better. The characters likable & attention holding. The plot and the sub-plot were both well-developed. I was given an Audible copy of this book & am voluntarily reviewing it. I'll definitely be reading more in this series as new books come up.
