Vengeance Night Roamers Book Three by Kristen Middleton Audiobook Review

This was a fun series from jump and keeps getting better.

My Review:
Vengeance is the third book in the Night Roamers series. Nikki and the entire crew is in Las Vegas with Ethan and Duncan. They’re searching for her family. While there they run into other types of supernatural creatures such as werewolves. It seems Las Vegas is melting pot for them. In this segment allies become enemies and vice-versa. It becomes difficult to trust anyone. Lots of twists!

The story is fast-paced action which I really love. There is enough setting to put the reader in there but not enough to distract from the pace or bore the reader. This series is a whole lotta fun and I’m liking the narrator better. She did well with this book. So either I’m getting used to her or her skills increased with each book. Looking forward to getting into the last book in the series.

Her Man in Havana by Fran Conner Book Review

What an enjoyable read! I loved it.

My Review:
Her Man in Havana is a fantastic read! The setting is Cuba and Harry is a resident of the UK and is there on business to make a rum and cigar deal and tour their factory. Simple right? Not so simple. He meets the gorgeous Maria, a translator and instantly falls for her. The simple deal turns into a huge ordeal as it snowballs out of control in political epic proportions.

This book is written is first person so we know his thoughts as the story moves and even when Harry is facing imminent death his thoughts kept me laughing. It’s a fast-paced action, romance, and mystery novella. The author kept the pace going at a steady speed yet still developed each scene fully with small setting details throughout so I had a nice picture of what was happening and where. I highly recommend this book. It was a riot!

Along with the steady layer of fog was a breeze that never seemed to quit. It whipped my pony tail across his face, then down again. He opened the bag and jiggled, slight tinge of fear perked in my belly followed by relief when only a couple gems fell out into his hand. He furrowed his brows in confusion. “I’ll see what I can find out. I don’t see how this is related to your case.” His eyes flashing past mine and focusing on something behind me. He refused to look me in the eye.
“In my world, you never know.” I leaned my back against the pier, allowing my hair to whip in varying directions.
He turned to leave, but I hadn’t dropped the bomb yet. “Weeber. One more thing?”
He stopped in his tracks and turned while I pulled the tiara out of my purse and handed it to him. He shifted his eyes away from me just to hide the wetness behind them as he gently grabbed the tiara from my hand. “You remember that?”
“I’ll check this out too,” he softly muttered.
“I asked if you remembered it?” I demanded.
He turned on his heels and left, using the noise of the sea lions to cover my words.
My ribs still a bit sore I allowed him to get a head start on me. I wasn’t in a hurry. I’d placed another small GPS device inside the Crown bag mixed with the stones. It wouldn’t buy me a lot of time, but it would get me off the pier and on the road behind him before he discovered it.
I hated driving, but it was a necessary evil today. GPS and my phone led me directly to Weeber, who was a few cars ahead on a motorcycle. He certainly wasn’t going to be playing with stones on that, so I kept several cars between us, knowing I had plenty of time.
I watched from a distance as he pulled up to an apartment building, not in the best part of San Francisco, and hopped off his bike. With my phone I zoomed in and watched him walk up a flight of steps and into an apartment. I tucked my hair into a 49ers’ ball cap and traced his steps. I lowered my head and gingerly walked up the staircase. My phone buzzed in my pocket. I was glad I had turned the ringer off before starting my top secret operation. It was La Tige.
“Hello,” I answered, keeping one eye plastered in the direction of Weeber’s apartment.
“Talked to Han. They found a body fits Alberto’s description.”

“I’m on my way.” Weeber would have to wait.

UnLeeshed by S.L. Bull Book Review

Very clever story!

My Review:
UnLeeshed is a fun story. It started out a bit slow but quickly developed. Bayne is a nonviolent vampire who tries to stay under the radar. Leesha is a friend/food source/booty call until she takes it too far and tries to stake a claim on him. Besides being possessive she is also a shifter and can shift into anything living thing she wants. She uses this to her advantage. I give my rating based on the unique story. It’s a very clever idea.

Throughout the story we get to know Bayne and Leesha very well. The author did a great job building and creating their characters. And I really didn’t expect the little twist at the end. Overall, it’s an amusing book.

A quick, easy read that really made me think.

It’s suggested that she go to Scotland and help for an archeological dig. Billy agrees and goes. The next thing she making friends with the other students on the dig and even catches the attention of a young man. Everything is finally going good for her until she finds a stone while digging outside the area. The stone is of no importance for the dig and she’s allowed to keep it.

This story has subtle meanings within the pages and has a steady flow. I hung on each word and was ready to flip to the next page. An engaging story.

Psychological Thriller in Audio

The Calm Before the Storm Evan's Sins is more than a psychological thriller. 

The research and astrology in the book is sound. The chapters and most of the book were written before any of the charts came into the picture. Evan's character was fully developed before I had a copy of his natal chart. The accuracy of the charts compared to the dates is mind blowing.

Who is Whobeda?
The Calm Before the Storm - Nail-biting Murder Mystery Suspense

The Calm Before the Storm Evan's Sins is now available in audio narrated by Robert P. Jellison. He is phenomenal and adds the extra touch expected in an audio book. 

Listen to a sample here
Read along while you listen.

Chapter 8
Southern Hospitality

Evan stood on the beach facing the Tates’ house. Heavy winds rushed against his bulky frame. He turned to face the ocean, taking in Chloe’s magnificence. Her powerful gusts dared to lay him flat. Water sprayed across his body.
He felt a hand against his back. “What are you doin’ out here? This storm is comin’ in strong.”
Evan looked at the dark-haired man the blond cop called Jim. “These winds beatin’ against the house and all. Thought I’d take you up on yer offer, gettin’ scary.”
Jim wasn’t sure what to think. He couldn’t imagine anyone dumb enough to wander the beach during a hurricane. “Why don’t you come inside?” he shouted through the blustering winds.
“Thank ya, sir,” said Evan as he followed Jim.
Once inside, a squall blew through, assaulting the house with rain. Jim bolted the door behind them. Evan followed Jim from the entryway into a large room. A few shelves with shells and other knickknacks hung beside an entertainment center to his right. Several family photos clung to the other walls. A hallway was straight across from him and an archway leading to another room stood to his right.
“You never been through one a these have ya?”
“No, sir.”
“Like I said, we got plenty a room.”
Ely and Evie ran to their daddy. “Who’s he?” asked Evie.
Jim picked up his son. “His name is Nyle.”
“Hi Nyle,” said Evie, unsure of the man. “I wanna play with Ely.”
“Fine boys you got,” Evan said as Evie ran to his brother’s side. Can’t wait till you’re all asleep.
“Take a seat. You thirsty? My wife makes the best homemade lemonade.”
“That’d be great.”
“Boys why don’t you ask mommy to bring us five glasses of lemonade?” Evie narrowed his eyes at the stranger then skipped to the kitchen with his brother.
“Mom, Dad found someone outside…”
“I don’t like him,” piped Evie.
Lilly laughed inwardly at her youngest son. He always spoke his mind. “Evie, that’s rude. Our house is sturdy as it gets. He probably didn’t realize how bad storms get around here.” She wasn’t sure she believed her own words. Who would comb the beach during a hurricane?
The boys carried the drinks to the living room. Ely handed one to the stranger. Eilida sobbed from her crib. Hearing her whimper, Lilly went to her daughter and lifted her up, her stuffed monkey dangling from Eilida’s tiny hand. Eilida buried her head into her mom’s comforting shoulder. It would be a long night, Eilida hated storms and seldom slept through them. With Eilida on her hip, Lilly joined her family in the living room. The weatherman droned on about the storm. Rain bands now approaching Billows Hollow - expected to head further south… Chloe updated to Category 3.
“Mighty bad storm out there, glad it’s a headin’ south,” said Evan. Eilida lifted her head off her mother’s shoulder, hearing the stranger’s voice. She looked at him and screamed loud enough to break a mirror. In his eyes she saw deep pits of blackness, an empty void and a black ring encircling him. Waves of terror needled up the little girl’s spine.
What a pleasant surprise, a daughter too. This family is perfect. Evan admired the little girl’s brown ringlets and pudgy round face and fingers. Visions of his sister swam into view. Emily, the one that got away… Stop, stop! Eilida carries around a stupid looking monkey just as Emily always drug around her smelly blanket.  Get in control! He pushed down the beast inside, but not for long.
Unable to ignore her daughter’s scream of horror. Lilly apologized, “I’m sorry, she just woke from her nap. She hates storms.”
“I got her babe.” Jim took his daughter in his arms. She buried her head and monkey, Sandy, into his chest unwilling to peek at the stranger. A heavy wind gust pelted the house. The lights flickered then went out. The boards across the windows let in no light. Inside the house was black as a midnight cat. In the darkness, Eilida’s fear increased and she clung to her father, grasping his arms as tight as possible.
Using the darkness to his advantage, Evan slipped crushed sleeping pills into Jim and Lilly’s lemonade sitting beside his on the oak coffee table. He mushed the baggie into his pocket only seconds before Lilly grabbed a flashlight from the drawer beneath an end table. She flicked the on button and a stream of light illuminated the room. Ely ran to it and made hand gestures. “Look Eilida, a duck.”
Eilida lifted her head, holding Sandy up to her face, and peered at her brother. He continued making shadow figures. Her brother’s silliness tugged at the corners of her lips, turning into a smile.
Lilly went through the house, lighting the candles she set up earlier. Losing electricity, even from a normal summer thunder storm, was common. She expected to lose electricity and knew it wouldn’t be back on for days. Jim invested in a generator but wouldn’t use it until after the storm. Lilly walked into the living room as Eilida climbed off her dad’s lap and joined Evie on the floor, watching their brother’s shadow display.
“I want a turn Ely. Let me try.” Ely showed Evie how to make hand shadows and Eilida chuckled. For the moment she forgot the stranger.
“Dinner’s ready and we better eat it now while it’s hot,” voiced Lilly, grabbing her lemonade and taking a sip.
Ely took Eilida’s hand, and they ran into the kitchen, Evie and Lilly right behind them.
Jim picked up his lemonade and turned to Evan. “Join us. My wife is a right fine cook and always makes more than enough.”
Evan stumbled over his words, attempting to make himself less threatening. “I do… don’t wanna upset your daughter again.”
“Nonsense. Eilida doesn’t like storms and is always wary of new people. She’ll be fine.”
“Thank you. Do you have a washroom? I’d like to clean up before I eat.”
Jim directed Evan to the restroom and walked into the kitchen to join his family for dinner. Evan pretended to use the restroom then walked back to the living room and slipped crushed sleeping pills into Ely and Evie’s lemonade.
Ely walked into the living room as Evan dusted the powdery residue off his hands.
“You comin’, sir? Mommy made lots to eat,” said Ely as he looked up at the stranger and picked up his and Evie’s glasses.
“Sure am. Your dad says your mom is a right fine cook.” Evan saw glimpses of himself flicker in the boy as he responded. He followed the boy into the kitchen and took the empty seat. His eyes looked through the Tates’ envisioning his drunk father slamming another beer, his mother twisting her dishwater blond ringlets while his corny little sister hung onto her germ infested blanket. And his brother - the son they liked… He shook the images from his head. Not time, not time.
The family, plus Evan, ate dinner by candlelight. The flames caused shadows to bounce on the walls. Eilida snuggled Sandy close and tried not to glance at the stranger but she couldn’t ignore the creeping, disfigured shadow on the wall behind him. Its arms, tendrils of black, unfurled to reveal a shiny object dripping in red. Eilida watched in horror as the shadow moved towards her mother seated beside her. She twisted in her high chair, eyes wide as flying saucers. She wanted to scream, tried to scream, but her vocal chords buckled and no sound escaped her lips.

The Carriage by Jena Baxter Audiobook Review

The first book I've listened to or heard from this author and it was good. Really good!

My Review:
I listened to The Carriage back to back to another time travel book but each author had a very different story to tell. This story is about a teen girl who gets into a carriage with her sister for a short ride in modern day New York. She ends up in the Victorian Era Paris. Talk about culture shock. The girl who I think was a brat has a rude eye-opening experience. She faces a lot of adversity while there and hoping to get home and meets a young man and a mutual attraction blossoms. I won't say more but I feel she was humbled a bit by her experience and glad it happened to her. 

Melissa Chatwood does a great job narrating both the male and female parts.

Interesting story and enjoyable listen.

Interview with Mariana Thorn

It's my pleasure to interview Mariana Thorn and learn about how her creative mind works. 

Tell us a little about you? 

I’ve been writing since I was little. I couldn’t get to the library enough or had to wait for the next book to come out. That’s how I started writing. I wrote my own stories while I waited. My favorite series growing up was The Saddle Club books and Sweet Valley High. Now you know how old I am lol.

Right now I work in a grocery store bakery. I love it, except the hours sometimes. It’s fun. I live in a small town in Western Washington with my little dog. I take many trips to my friend’s little farm to ride and work with the horses in the next town over. Really I think I have the best life ever. I get to do things I love and am surrounded by amazing people.

So, what have you written?

I have a few books between three series out right now.
The first series is Fur, Fangs, and Fairies. This series at the moment includes two full lengths and a short (Seizing Darkness, Seizing Shadows, and Rising Shadows). This is a paranormal adventure with a touch of romance but not too much series. That’s how I ususally explain it.
The second series and my favorite to write is the Skylar
Wolfe Mysteries short story series. Right now the first four books are grouped into one box set I like to call the Snark Bundle. I giggle the whole time writing these.
Then I have the first two books out for my Three Kingdoms fantasy series. This is the series that I’ve been working on the longest. Blood of Shadows and Blood of Legends are out now. Blood of Queens, the last book, is coming soon.

Give us an insight into your main character. What does he/she do that is so special?

For Seizing Darkness, Natalya is a weretiger that doesn’t remember her past. She’s a bit feisty and has built herself a comfortable life working for the Paranormal Investigation Bureau. Let’s just say her past comes back to bite her in the tail and leave it at that.

What genre are your books?

I have paranormal, mystery, and fantasy so far. 

What draws you to this genre?

Really I like all genres which is probably why I don’t stick to one. Mostly I just write what comes into my head and get drawn into whatever world I’m working in.

Where do your ideas come from?

Sometimes I just don’t know. A character will pop into my head, take root, then the next thing I know I have a story idea. Mostly they are books that I feel like reading but can’t find one available that has the right feel so I just write one up.

What is the hardest thing about writing?

For me getting in the zone and staying there. Once I manage it I can write all the words but some days I get too distracted.

What is the easiest thing about writing?

Ideas. I always have characters, story ideas, and new worlds going on in my mind.

1f your latest release is part of a series, tell us a little about the series?

I will be releasing a new story soon. It is just getting polished. The fifth book in the Skylar Wolfe series should be coming out in the next few months. Let’s just say I throw Skylar into a swamp just for fun.

Tell us a little about you as a person.

I love animals better than most people. I hope to buy a big piece of land one day and have an animal sanctuary on it. That’s my biggest dream. I love to surround myself with things that make me happy. I have a shelf in my room with all my happy things. It has my art supplies, things people have sent me, pictures of things and people I love and just happy stuff.
I’m a very positive person. In fact my biggest fault is always seeing the best in people even when they don’t live up to it. I am an eternal opptomist and a dreamer. Normal people confuse me. I have the best friends in the entire world. I also believe I can achieve anything I put my mind to.

Besides writing what are your favorite things to do?

Baking and horseback riding. Drawing, watercolor painting, and coloring as well. I love walking by the river by my house with my favorite dog ,Tony. If you visit my Facebook page you will see many pictures of him.

Do you have a favorite movie and/or book?

I love the Harry Potter books. My favorite TV shows (which I watch constantly) MASH, Keeping Up Appearances, and Rosemary & Thyme. They are usually running in the background.

Shiver by Kristen Middleton Audiobook Review

Shiver is the second book in the Night Roamers series. For fans of vampire fiction it's a great series.

My Review:
I always enjoy a good paranormal vampire story. After I read Blur Book 1 in the Night Roamers series I decided I needed to read the next. In Shiver Nikki is the only one who remembers the town is full of vampires and she still can't resist Ethan. Even Nathan her twin doesn't believe her and her mother thinks she needs a professional. 

There is a fair amount of suspense more ao than book 1 and kept me on the edge. I'm still not thrilled with narrator but she did improve and no doubt I'll finish the entire series.

A great series!

The Dinosaur Four by Geoff Jones Audiobook Review

A splendid science fiction novel.

My Review:
The Dinosaur Four is a clever science fiction novel. A small diner is sent into the past with a few patrons inside. The authors detail into the Cretaceous period is what really made the novel for me. He used fine details whether true or not made me believe the story and the animals of the time. Although, I think he knows his stuff. For me believable and probable are what makes a good sci-fi. I have a science background and know enough not to be fooled by knock-off sci-fi. This was the real thing.

He also designed great characters that were individual. I found myself laughing even though the scene was gory because of the characters and their thoughts. Lots of backstabbing going on. Nick Podehl helped to bring out the personalities at the same time has a fab narrator voice.

Overall very entertaining and highly recommended for sci-fi and time-travel fans.

Dark Lycan by Barbara Chioffi Book Review

Another hit by Barbara Chioffi.

My Review:
Dark Lycan is Tara and Jared’s story. Tara is a young lady who enjoys paranormal romance. She lives a simple life with her mother and stepfather. Until she is kidnapped by a disturbing man. She manages to get freed from him but her life will never be the same. Jared finds her and the attraction between the two send sparks flying everywhere.
There’s a few surprises and twists in the story that built suspense and created an amazing story. Since Barbar Chioffi released Angel Mine she’s been on my radar. I love her style of writing and the ease and flow of reading. This story doesn’t disappoint. It’s a fun and thrilling paranormal romance.
