With the new year approaching, hospital chaplain Lindsay Harding heads for a much-needed break in the peaceful resort town of Duck on North Carolina's outer banks. Her plan to attend the wedding of her friend, Anna, runs aground when a boatload of trouble washes ashore, and as the old year ticks down, the body count goes up. Thrust into the path of an increasingly desperate killer, Lindsay must uncover a sinister secret before she winds up swimming with the fishes.

Audiobook. I had a break between books 1 and 2. I have to say I missed Lindsey’s quirks. A death in duck is yet again a murder wrapped around Lindsey but this time she’s on her own. The police aren’t as close to the truth as she is.

Lindsey is a helper of god. She offers support to families in time of need. After her aunt is found dead Lindsey needs to unravel her own mystery to find the truth. With a blooming wedding, an adopted dog and a deadly secret this is one crazy ride. These stories are well passed and the narrator reads beautifully. This book just like the first feels like Lindsey is trying to understand her heritage. The town and it’s people offer more than cups of tea.

I really like this series. I’ve been listening to it in the car which is perfect. A full stint of 45 minutes at a time works great. The book is written in a way that makes you care about the characters but don’t see the twists coming. Very enjoyable. 5 out 5. I liked this one slightly more than the first but I think it’s partly because I missed the story and I’ve grown attached to the characters.

Cara McLeod, the girl most likely to have the perfect marriage, is now divorced and, in her own words, "fat, frumpy, and over forty." The thought of facing former classmates - and the ex-husband who dumped her - at her high school reunion terrifies her. Cajoled into attending by her kids and her best friend, Cara enlists help at the gym to lose weight and look great for the reunion. Personal trainer Finn Cooper is more than willing to help - but does he have to be so to-die-for gorgeous?

Absolutely loved this as an audiobook. I this is my first romance. I usually listen to Cozy mysteries or mythology.

Cara has never moved on from her divorce. She’s has two beautiful daughters but feels her life isn’t going on a direction. Lucky for her one man is about to change everything.

Her class reunion is coming up and she wants to look good. Finn is a guy who she meets at work and he ends up helping her. He’s younger, fitters and easy on the eye. Cara doesn’t see the things he sees in her. Finn is about to help her make everything fall into place.

ARC. My review is my own and honest.

But when the annual Civil War reenactment in her hometown of Mount Moriah, North Carolina, produces a real casualty, the Grim Reaper suddenly gets a little too close for comfort. With the clock ticking, the police struggle to unravel how and why a beloved local reenactor was shot in front of hundreds of onlookers.

Audiobook review.

A murder in Mount Moriah works really well as an Audiobook. Holly Adams reads it perfectly. The book is fairly lengthy and has a lot of detail. The author creates a town and a community for the reader to love. This works well as an audiobook however I’m not sure it would have been as interesting if I can read the book.

Lindsay is our main character and in the centre of a storm. During a war reenactment a man is killed. Now the history of the town will be called into question to solve the case.

Lindsay works as a chaplain and feels it’s her duty to find the truth. With twists and turns at every corner it’s time to discover a scandal worth murdering for.

This is available on Kindle Unlimited also and is part of a series. Our main character is looking for her own happy ending which I’m guessing will continue through the books.

The narrator of Remnants of Ash read this book with an addictive passion. I’ll admit I haven’t read many Fae stories but I really liked this book.

The world as we know it is being torn apart by fae. Chloe sees the start of the end when her professor is killed not so accidentally. Now she needs to find a way to set things right. The task seems impossible but with the help of a fallen fae an adventure unfolds. With magic, romance and the overshadow of death Chloe and Bram set out to save the human world.

This is the start of a series and is a continuous story. I really enjoyed this but it will leave you wanting more.

Alfhild Daemonne has inherited an inn. And a dead body. Estranged from her witch mother, and having committed to little in her 30 years, Alf surprises herself when she decides to start a new life. She heads deep into the English countryside, intent on making a success of the once popular inn. However, discovering the murder throws her a curve ball. Especially when she suspects dark magick. Additionally, a less than warm welcome from several locals persuades her that a variety of folk - of both the mortal and magickal persuasions - have it in for her.

The wonkiest witch works perfectly as an audiobook. The descriptive writing helps build the story so it feels like a movie in your mind. Kim Bretton’s London accent works fabulously with the story. Her voice is quick paced and kept me engaged in the story right to the end.

This is a Cozy Mystery which is my new sweet. I’ve only read a few but I’m loving this genre. Wonky Inn is a series which I definitely want more of luckily for me there are more books already out and they are available on Kindle Unlimited.

Alfhild has turned her back on magic. She chose to enjoy the mundane life. When she inherits property she didn’t know exists she sets off on a new adventure. The wonky inn has a charm that appears to Alfhid but the body she finds puts a dampener on her plans. She has a mystery to solve and a town to infiltrate. Magic is the key to unlocking the secrets and the Wonkiest witch needs all the help she can get.

The main character Alfhid is a loveable character and I enjoyed her story. This is a full-length novel with a happy ending. I enjoyed every minute. Highly recommended.
