This series fills in Allison’s story about how she is now a witch from the Samantha Moon stories. So entertaining!! I love it and recommend it whether you’ve read the Samantha Moon series or not. I think it would “stand alone” just fine. Both series are especially fun if you live in Southern California. If not, still read these books!!!

After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: his sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man.

I loved this story. This is definitely the Harry Potter of the adult fiction/mystery genre. I listened to this book after #’s 2 & 3 and never had any idea who the killer was. It was great to hear how Cormoran and Robin started working together. I did not figure this out part way through. I was so surprised at the end.

Alison Kerby’s guesthouse is haunted all year round. Surviving the dead of winter, though? That’s a spooky proposition. Even with a blizzard bearing down on New Jersey, Alison can count on at least two guests—Paul and Maxie, the stubborn ghosts who share her shore town inn.

This book follows nicely in the series. It answers the big question from the first few books about Alison's missing ghost of a dad and I have been waiting patiently for a love/like interest for Allison. The narrator is one of my favorites and she did not disappoint. I will be purchasing the next one in the series possibly tomorrow.

Georgina Kincaid has formidable powers. Immortality, seduction, shape-shifting into any human form she desires, walking in heels that would cripple mere mortals - all child's play to a succubus like her. Helping to plan her ex-boyfriend's wedding is a different story. Georgina isn't sure which is worse - that Seth is marrying another woman, or that Georgina has to run all over Seattle trying on bridesmaid dresses.

A smashing, award-winning debut novel that introduces Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper. Charley sees dead people. That’s right, she sees dead people. And it’s her job to convince them to “go into the light”. But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (i.e. murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she’s been having about an Entity who has been following her all her life...and it turns out he might not be dead after all.

I loved everything about the Succubus Blues series. As I sit in my car with tears in my eyes from such an incredible ending I know this is a series that will stay in my mind for a long time. Georgina Kincaid was an awesome character and Elisabeth Rodgers brought her to life for me so much more than if I had just read the books myself. I will be reading and listening to more Richelle Mead.

In the seventh book in the brilliant New York Times best-selling mystery series, canine narrator Chet and P.I. Bernie journey to Washington, DC, and the dog-eat-dog world of our nation’s capital. Stephen King has called Chet "a canine Sam Spade full of joie de vivre". Robert B. Parker dubbed Spencer Quinn’s writing "major-league prose". Now the beloved team returns in another suspenseful novel that finds Chet sniffing around the capital city and using his street smarts to uncover a devilish plot.
