When private investigator Simon Wolfe is hired to follow his friend’s wife under suspicion of adultery, he could never have guessed it would lead him into a friendship with the world’s leading writer, Ernest Hemingway. Nor could he have predicted the strange and disturbing twists the investigation would take. The case accelerates quickly when the wife is found murdered in a Key West hotel and discovered to have a secret life. But that revelation is downright boring as the plot thickens with increasingly bizarre revelations, capped off with a macabre ending no one saw coming.

This was my first Craig A. Hart's book. This is the first book in the Simon Wolfe Mystery. The storyline is filled with historical details, mystery and also some humor. The narration was really well done, as always with Tom Jordan. His soft voice suits perfectly the story.

Dr. Brady Thomasson has his hands full. Christmas is two days away, and he’s the physician in charge at Lilac’s senior living community.

This is my fist Pamela Ferguson's book. This is a sweet and clean Second Chance at Love, and Christmas story novella. Brady, is a physician, and Camille, is an environmental lawyer. They used to date before, and they meet again when Camille visits her grandfather at the Mountain Mist, a senior center, where Brady works. The other characters were also interesting. The story has a happy ending. The narration was easy to listen to. I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Growing up, my father always told me that I’d come to a bad end, just like my mom did when I was a kid. Hearing that kind of stuff when you’re little eventually gets to a girl, but I can’t say I ever expected my "bad end" to involve an angry vampire with a severe case of iron deficiency and a panty-melting English accent. Maybe I shouldn’t be surprised. Ever since my mother was assassinated, I’ve felt like there was something vast and frightening hidden beneath the fabric of the world - something none of us are supposed to know about.

This is the first book in The Last Vampire Series. This story is sexy and steamy, sometimes funny, really intriguing, and captivating. The storyline is fast-paced, action-packed and suspenseful! Ransley and Zorah, the main characters, are great and they share a strong chemistry. After Xander, in the Circle of Blood Series, Ransley is my new favorite vampire. The secondary characters are also interesting. I like the world, and the scenery. Now, I can't wait for the next book in the Series to know what happens next! If you like paranormal romance with a sexy vampire, and a lot of action, you'll totally love this one. And if you haven't listened to the Circle of Blood Series yet, you should do it now, while waiting for the next book in The Last Vampire Series. You won't regret it. R.A. Steffan and Jaelynn Woolf never disappoint. The team authors/narrator is perfect! Gwendolyn has done a fantastic job with the narration. I really enjoyed my listening.

Go to Paris, you'll find love! I’m Jillian Moore. My entire life, I wanted to follow in my parents’ footsteps and find true, long-lasting love, but unfortunately, it hasn’t happened in the five years I’ve lived here. You’d think in a city with two million people, I’d have crossed paths with the perfect man. Huh! Who am I kidding? However, things changed when I least expected it. I was literally knocked on my ass, but it wasn’t by the sexy man with the gorgeous caramel eyes. No, I’ve been knocked over by a pint-sized, strawberry blonde.

She's not a quiet librarian. My landlord is infuriating. He's uptight and rigid, right down to those dress shirts that do nothing to hide the muscle underneath. Sure, I never read the tenant's agreement. I have now. In fact, I've memorized it and I'm going to use it to my advantage while staying within the bounds of my contract. Is it my fault that those little decorative touches drive Charlie nuts? And who can resist purchasing a few vulgar gnomes to enhance the landscape?
