A refreshing book with a mature heroine. For once it is not a teenager who discovers she has powers but a forty-year-old divorced mother. She is not perfect but honest with some snarky comments. I liked the fact that she was chosen on merit and has trouble always being objective and doing the right thing. The story fluently draws in the other magical creatures that live on the estate as well as a certain sexy agent from the underworld.

The Murderess of Mayfair: A Second Chance at Love is a Regency romance with everything it needs to make a wonderful read. There are balls, deceit, disguises, and do not forget the heart-racing sensual encounters between the main characters. What is refreshing is the fact that the story focuses on two commoners who are happy not to be part of the Ton.

A Flight of Broken wings is an enchanting and riveting fantasy of humans and Aeriels who are in constant conflict. Ruban is the top Hunter on Earth and Ashwin an Aeriel prince in disguise on a secret mission. Together they face battle and lies; betrayal and heroics and a shared love for their planet. If you love fantasy this is a fresh new world with lots of action and adventure. A good read.

Three men in a boat by Jerome K. Jerome is hilarious with some beautiful scenery along the way.

Sweet Dreams is the first instalment in the Eternal Rest Bed and Breakfast Cozy Mystery series written by Beth Dolgner. The audiobook by Audible is narrated by Patricia Shade and is 6 hours in length. Patricia Shade succeeds in delivering an excellent performance that holds the listener‘s attention and conveys the mysterious atmosphere that surrounds the events that unfold in and around the Bed and Breakfast.

When a shocking kidnapping occurs, Kailen the last of his kind must team up with Khnurn's apprentice Thalaith. Neither of them ever thought they would ignite such intense feelings of love and protection for each other; however, her unknown origins still hang over them as the couple join the other Titanians in a fight against two very evil death sorcerers. This book is vividly described and a must for all who love strong warriors and romance.

On the anniversary of Olivia, death Crystal imagines seeing the girl. She thinks she is losing her mind until she speaks to her mother and discovers a talent for seeing and speaking to ghosts. Olivia cannot rest until Crystal has helped her, and soon Crystal and her two best friends are caught up in the supernatural world and dangerous relationships.

I would recommend this to anyone who loves YA lit as well as the paranormal.

This was my first experience with an Audible book, and it was a good one. The story was engaging, and the narrator has a voice that enhances the story's supernatural elements. As I mainly read for escapism, it does not matter whether the area in which the story occurs is accurate. For me, believable and relatable characters are more important.

I enjoyed the story and would like to listen to or read the next instalment.

The Witching place was a pleasurable read. It is a light whodunnit in true cosy style. Rachel Sage has always wanted to own a second-hand book store like the one her father had when she was a child. Faced with nothing holding her back she decides to move to a little seaside town to work at the Curious Bookstore
The bookstore proves to have its secrets and Rachel is soon in trouble.

This is a suspenseful thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat. This is not a book that you read to relax. It is filled with action and intrigue, conveying the frightening reality of stumbling across a serial killer who is very intelligent and relentlessly driven by grief and revenge.
Loved the book.

Vampires, Necromancers, Hunters, and Psychopathic cults all come together to make a great YA Fantasy. Sera is contacted by Nate to help him find his son. Meanwhile, she has to try and solve the murder of her previous client and becomes mixed up in an ominously overfriendly cupcake cult. All of this while she has to rebuild her relationship with her sister, whose best friend is a ghost from the Victorian era.

There just is an unmistakable difference between American, British and Danish crime novels. After reading Jo Nesbo and Inger Wolf I have developed a taste for Danish novels. Through the eyes of cynical and troubled policemen, you see a different side of the country and what the life of fighting crime does to a person.

Who else loves Danish crime novels?

Keeper of the Wolves | Cheree Alsop

Wolves did not hope. They accepted life as it came and learned to flow with the path of their padding paws. One could not change the past nor predict the future, so to worry or mourn with regret the way things happened was foreign to animals of the wild.

ddbookreviews This in my opinion is one of the best shifter books out there, I simply loved it and can highly recommend it.

As many books deal with downtrodden or idealistic policemen or PI's this was refreshing something different. Reminiscent of Wiseguy back in the '80s the main character is a good guy who got out of a life of crime. The book is believable and was a pleasure to read. So many books leave you on the edge of criminal families and the way they function. This story was just a little short for me, I do like a nice thick book. It was a pleasure to read.
