I love true crime and I love Jack Rosewood. I have read and listened to several of the Jack Rosewoods true crime books. He really breaks down each crime, Victim, and Murderer. This books is no different. In this book he delves into 8 Serial Killers from all over the world. He gives you the full run down on their spree, Some of their past history and the outcome. This books seems to at times be a little text bookish but it is still worth it. Kevin Kollins does a great job with the narration.

This is a really weird book and it never quite totally explains itself but I couldn't stop listening. This book is so full of twists and turns and is very fast paced. There's never a dull moment. Rich Hill has an amazing voice he really done an amazing job with breathing life into this book. I will definitely be looking for more books but the Author and the narrator.

I am a huge fan of Jack Rosewood and his true crime books. He introduces you to the victim, the killer, and the crime. You get a history on the killer before during and after the crime. In some cases you also get to know the neighborhood or town where the crime happened. Jack brings all of the answers to questions before I have to ask them. Kevin Collins does a really good job narrating this book. He is not dry or boring. He keeps all of the stories in the book moving.

The man of dreams is too good for my sister. But I played by the rules. I stepped aside. I honored their sham of a marriage and watched a good man rot while my sister destroyed him from within. But then...my sister went missing. So I saved her husband's life. I loved him like he was my own. And I protected him from the truth. I had to do it. You would've done the same.

Rachel Hargrove has done a great job with this book. It's a real page Turner or in this case a keep listening. You just can't stop with all the twists and turns to see what happens next. Curt Bonnem and Laurie Catherine Winkle I feel are a big part of the success to this book their have tons of feeling in their reading of the book. This was my first book by the author and narrator but I will be looking for more by all 3 of them.

Father Jason Crowder, a young priest assigned to the case, must marshal his courage in order to save the boy and the entire city from the forces of evil. But this is a darkness mankind has never encountered before. It craves more than blood. And it won’t rest until it possesses Father Crowder’s soul.

Between the Shadows is a Time travel book. It is part of the Lake Lanier Mysteries series. it is book 3 in the series. In the book York and Mackenzie Reynolds must travel through time back to 1865 to save a ghost woman. York has found a woman in our time but there is something very strange about her looks and the boundaries she can pass. York convinces Kinsey they must travel back to 1865 and save Isobel before she is brutally raped and murdered.

They travel back in time to Georgia at the end of the Civil War. Once there they run across James, a soldier from the war who is trying to get home. Along with James is Brady another soldier who the war has turned into a brutal man. James takes Kinsey hostage in order to escape death from York and Collin, Isobels brother.

It is pretty much love at first site for York and Isobel, and for Kinsey and James. Now the tricky part is can Kinsey leave James in 1865 to return to the present in order to save James' life ?

Frustrated with their busy schedules, Murphy Thornton and Jessica Faraday attempt to find togetherness by scheduling a weekly date night. The last thing Jessica Faraday expected for her date night was to take a couple’s gourmet cooking course at the Stepford Kitchen Studio, owned by Chef Natalie Stepford--the model of perfection in looks, home, and business.

Another Win for Lauren Carr. Murder by Perfection was a great read. In is book 3 in the Thorny Rose Mystery Series. Which is a spin off of her Mac Faraday series. Mac's daughter Jessica and her husband Murphy Thornton are the stars of this series. I have to admit Lauren Carr always fills her books with so much going on you never have a chance to get bored and every book is different and never gets stale. I also love how her books are clean reads. I mean this book has murder, kidnapping, a sex kitten, but it is not graphic or filled with sexual content or even strong language.



In the book Murphy and Jessica feel like they are loosing touch with each other and decide on a weekly date night to get closer together. This is a great idea. My husband and I do this every Thursday night and have for 12 years now.



There are a couple of mysteries in this book. One morning Murphy is out running and hears a gun shot. He finds Ross Caldwell slumped in his car. Murphy of course call the police and is immediately stuck in the investigation to find out who killed him.



Anther mystery in the book is Natalie Stepford. She runs a couples gourmet cooking class. When she ends up dead, they all must figure out why. While investigation Murphy ends up missing. In order to find Murphy they must find out all of Natalie's dirty little secrets.



If you like, multifaceted mysteries and Lauren Carr this is a must read. I actually listened to the audiobook. Mike Alger does an awesome job with the narration as he has done with so many of Lauren's other books I have listened to. Between Lauren's writing skills and Mike's narration there is never a blah moment in the book.

this is the 4th book in the Haunting Danielle series and I am still enjoying the series. The series just seems to get better.

In this book Danielle is framed for murdering her arc enemy. The man who held her best friend Lily's body after her attempted murder in book 3. The body count does rise in this book from there.
