I don't give lots of 5 star reviews but have given this book 5 stars. This is a great book about friendships and the twists and turns they can take as life goes along. There is some sadness at the end but overall really enjoyed this one all the way through.

Late Victorian London. When James Miller, the most respectable of Scottish businessmen, is pulled, dead, from the Thames, his daughter is drawn into an investigation which reveals a whole world of secrets and corruption. Alongside local detective Culley, Catriona’s search for her father’s killer leads all the way to the tragic truth behind the ghostly legend of The Darkwater Bride and the power of her deadly kiss. An epic drama starring Adrian Scarborough, Claire Corbett, Freya Mayor and Jamie Glover, The Darkwater Bride combines the genres of the Victorian mystery thriller with the equally classic Victorian mode of the ghostly tale.

Good story. I usually don't like the free originals but enjoyed this one. It sounds like a radio program with sound effects. That isn't a bad thing to me. Kept me entertained the whole time.

Teddy Cannon isn’t your typical 20-something woman. She’s resourceful. She’s bright. She’s scrappy. She can also read people with uncanny precision. What she doesn’t realize: She’s actually psychic. When a series of bad decisions leads Teddy to a run-in with the police, a mysterious stranger intervenes. He invites her to apply to the School for Psychics, a facility hidden off the coast of San Francisco where students are trained like Delta Force operatives: It’s competitive, cutthroat, and highly secretive.

You must read the first book or you may be lost. The first book is really good, enough that I wanted to listen to this one. Fast paced action adventure with elements of mystery and romance. This kept my attention and I finished in 2 days. The ending left things open for a third book that I will look forward to getting.

Flynn is stuck - depressed, recently dumped, and living at his mom’s house. The supermarket was supposed to change all that. An ordinary job and a steady check. Work isn’t work when it’s saving you from yourself. But things aren’t quite as they seem in these aisles. Arriving to work one day to a crime scene, Flynn’s world collapses as the secrets of his tortured mind are revealed. And Flynn doesn’t want to go looking for answers at the supermarket. Because something there seems to be looking for him.

I enjoyed this story. Not too long, not too short. It is about a man's mental illness he endures after having a "mental breakdown" while writing his first book. Interesting to me since I work in the mental health field. Good pace, kept my interest.

I enjoyed listening to Lara the cat tell about her adventures. Perfect follow up book for the author after his Finding Gobi, one of my favorite books ever! Lara is the other fur baby of Dion and his wife. It is only fitting that she get her own book and recognition she deserves!
