Wonderful Story!

I loved this book! Witches and Ghosts made it so much fun. Angela Pepper wrote a book that pulled me in from the very beginning. I love the imagery in the story and the humor is a huge plus. Tiffany Williams did an awesome performance with the various characters. I loved how the author wrote the characters with depth, and things were not predictable. This book is a standalone listen and beginning of a series. I will definitely listen to more by this author and narrator.

Fun, Cozy, and Short

I really enjoy listening to and discovering new authors and narrators. Amelia Morgan wrote a fun cozy mystery that is pure escapism and delightful to listen to. I know its not possible to cast spells, and so the escapism begins. The basis of the book is full of good intentions, there is chemistry, and a satisfactory ending. I thought the performance by Lainie Pahos was great. She gave characters distinguishable voices. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I would listen to more books by this author and narrator.

Entertaining Listen!

I so enjoy a book with underhanded characters. Camille DeAngelis wrote a book that pulled me in. I really enjoyed how it covered a large time span. I found some of the characters to be endearing while others were not. The title of the book was aptly named. The narration of this book was great! I loved how Kelley Hazen delivered the various emotions that were called for. She truly did an outstanding performance.

Fun Listen

I so enjoy the Happy Tails Dog Walking Mysteries by Stella St. Claire. Oliva and Andrew have not yet repaired their relationship to what it once was at the beginning of the book. Oliva has a panache for finding dead bodies much to Andrew's dismay. When he starts acting suspicious, the fun and miscommunication begins. I love how the towns people also get in on their relationship. The imagery in this book is wonderful and the narration by Machelle Williams is fitting. I love how she gives various characters voices. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. The twists in the book are great along with the quirky characters. I will definitely listen to more books by the author and narrator.

Great Story, Great Narration!

I so enjoyed the story of Elina (Tia and Seth's mom) and her relationship with Declan. I have listened to the Blaze of Glory books and wanted her story. The narration on this book is outstanding. I loved the Swedish (although it sounded Russian) accent of single mom Elina. This book is a standalone listen and part of a series. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. The character of Elina showed so much determination and depth. I loved how she put her children first. This was great background for other books by this author. I definitely will listen to more books by this author and narrator.

Great Children's Book!

Typically I do not listen to children's books, but I have enjoyed M Garzon's writing and I wanted to hear this story. Although the title is cheesy, it was fitting for the children's saying. I think that animals can make such an awesome enrichment to children's upbringing. I loved the glimpse at Seth's training tips to Ben. The story is heartwarming and has wonderful references to The Black Stallion, which is the target age of this book. Sonia Bell did a delightful performance with her various character voices. I love it when I can hear exactly who is speaking. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review,.

Love, Loss, a Rockstar and an Actress

Wow! Melissa Foster wrote another amazing book that has so many layers. Love and Loss both have many emotions associated with their meanings. Trish and Boone had great chemistry in this book, yet Boone was hiding his true self behind the media bad boy image. I love it when a man is dedicated to family and friends, and wants to protect his pack. Trust, forgiveness, letting go, hope, redemption and healing are also part of this wonderful book. BJ Harrison was perfect in his narration for this book. He has such a smooth voice and he puts in the right emotions. This book is a standalone listen and part of a series. I really loved the book and can't praise it enough.

Delightful Listen!

Adriana Locke pulled me into this short book. I love the Gibson Boys series, and Cross is a wonderful addition. Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott add so much to the story with their narration. The emotions are fitting, and only add to the enjoyment. Second chance at love is romance that I fully enjoy. The humor and the steam were perfect. Can't wait for the next one in this series. This is a standalone listen.

Wow!!!

Katie Ganshert pulled me into this book from the very beginning. I found this story to have so many layers. There is hope, redemption, heartache, sorrow, regrets, joy, happiness, humor, life lessons, and love. So many aspects to mention, yet the book will stick with me on so many levels. I loved the narration by Stacey Glemboski and Joe Hempel. They fit the book perfectly and added to the enjoyment. The imagery in this story was outstanding. I will definitely listen to more books by this author and narrators.

Honor Code

Stanalei Fletcher summed up this book perfectly with his reference to the Japanese word for honor, Bushido. I love the strong characters in the series, yet each book is a standalone listen. The plot with the various twists is wonderful. Charles Henderson Norman performed the book in the style reminiscent of Dick Hill. He has a great voice for military/security stories. His villain voice is outstanding.
