Addie Greyborne loved working with rare books at the Boston Public Library - she even got to play detective, tracking down clues about mysterious old volumes. But she didn't expect her sleuthing skills to come in so handy in a little seaside town....

I was happily surprised with this mystery. The bases of the story is a bit extreme, but I decided to give it a go and really enjoyed the story. It gives me the good feeling of a old time novels. I can see it like a "murder she wrote", but you have have a well to do store keeper and a friend who is a cop solving the mysteries. Fun.

Well written by Lauren Elliott and Karen White's narration make for a great match.
I will be purchasing book 2.

Molly Harper---thank you again for a great story.

I have been waiting for my return to Mystic Bayou and all of it's fun----to bad the visit couldn't have been longer. The characters, are bigger then life and with Mystic Bayou as a setting---the mind does wonder as what mischief there is to be had. LOL

Molly Harper and Amanda Ranconi are a great team and bring this world to life----Jonathan Davis, with his male timbre, adds so much more to our beastly male of the Bayou. Ooh-la-la 5/5

When a stack of library materials is found at the scene of a hit-and-run, library director Lindsey Norris finds herself dragged into the investigation as the police try to link the driver of the stolen car to the person who borrowed the books. Before Lindsey can delve into the library's records, the victim of the hit-and-run, Theresa Houston, suffers another accident, and the investigation shifts from driver negligence to attempted homicide.

Jenn McKinlay this is the best book of your series. Allyson Ryan's narration is excellent as always.

With the character, who have become friends over the last 8 books, are full of surprises. From the beginning to end it involves the readers as the story expands and develops. It doesn't slow down! You will love this new addition.

During a blackout, the city erupts into chaos. With Breed on the brink of war, Keystone has only 24 hours to complete a secret mission. Raven seeks help from the most unlikely of places, but at what cost?

Raven is talking herself into a corner about her relationship with Christian, and Christian is unsure as how to handle it all.

As Raven and Christian’s story continues, a City-wide blackout occurs--Who? Why? How? Chaos reigns. Of course, Keystone is called in to help.

“Blackout” has many character’s stories playing out at the same time. By the end you will see changes that will affect the ‘Crossbreed” storyline.

Thank you for a great read:
Dannika, “Blackout” a great addition to the Crossbreed series. It through wrenches into the workings of this story!
Narrator Nicole Poole did a great job.

For centuries, the extremely powerful and ruthless vampire witches of the European Council have wandered the Earth, controlling governments, fostering war, creating political conflict, and often leaving absolute destruction in their wake. One of the strongest of them is set to create some havoc in the city of New Orleans, and it's definitely personal.

Thank you Faith Hunter and Khristine Hvam for a great job.

Jane is busy again chasing an unknown power—being—thing –that is after Jane and Leo along with anyone that gets in his way. The witches, and Molly (still having magical problems), along with the Priestess join to help----But Murphey’s law prevails. This ancient, dark, magical being starts playing “catch me if you can” across New Orleans with whomever wants to play or get in his way. And to make it worse Jane/Beast (one) want to protect what she calls family and do her job as the Enforcer.

This book will affect all the characters in the book---some for the better—some not so much---and someone in an unknown manner.

ENJOY--I DID ;-))

An Atlanta ex-cop comes to Lake Sackett, Georgia, seeking peace and quiet - but he hasn’t bargained on falling for Frankie, the cutest coroner he’s ever met. Frankie McCready talks to dead people. Not like a ghost whisperer or anything - but it seems rude to embalm them and not say hello. Fortunately, at the McCready Family Funeral Home & Bait Shop, Frankie’s eccentricities fit right in. Lake Sackett’s embalmer and county coroner, Frankie’s goth styling and passion for nerd culture mean she’s not your typical Southern girl, but the McCreadys are hardly your typical Southern family.

Southern Eclectic is set in a spunky, stereo typed, deep southern town. Funny and so realistic is so many ways. I love the setting, the character, and the spunk. I don't like that it took 2 books to tell one story. The last book was 2 hours long and this one is 6 hour 51 minutes. (7+2= 9) I would have preferred one 9 hour book. Some MH "Half Moon Hollow series are that long.

I am not a novella or short story lover. I usually will not purchase an Audible under 5 hours long. I do make exceptions for my favorite Authors, like I did for Molly Harper's last book. But, if I had not read the short story (Peachy Flippin) I would not be completely satisfied with "Ain't She a Peach". And the 2 books make this one story more expensive. I have a budget for book buying and I really didn't like overspending on this one story in the series. My opinion----Just Sayin.......

Molly Harper is one of my favorite writers. All her stories make me laugh with her snarky humor. Talented lady. And when MH and Amanda Ronconi team up well that is a must buy for me.

A late night tragic accident along the Lower Battery leads Liz Talbot straight to her next case. Who's the client? Well, now, therein lies the first puzzle. When the police arrive at the scene of the accident, Poppy Oliver claims she's only trying to help. But the dent on the front of her Subaru and the victim's injuries provoke a certain Charleston police detective's suspicious nature.

Madison Avery is a young woman with a huge problem. From her penthouse apartment, she witnessed a murder in the building across the street, but by the time the police arrived, the crime scene had been wiped clean. Unfortunately Madison suffers from prosopagnosia - face blindness - so even though she had a clear view of the murder, she can't describe the victim or the killer. With no forensic evidence that a crime was committed and no description of the victim to match to a body, the police have no choice but to close the file.

Jana DeLeon thank you for an excellent story in every way. I couldn't put it down.

Shaye Archer, private detective, is stronger and is determined to solve the new clients problems, which are many. NO SPOILERS here, you will have to walk that trail of clues as I did. WOW! A must read.

This book is a great continuation in the series and will answer more of Shaye's questions as she tries to go on with her life after her own disasters in the past. But she continues forward to help others solve their own problems. For those who only want to start reading from here should know that this novel will stand alone as well. Background information needed is given to the reader--But I suggest to read the series because it is just so good.
