My Tampa Audiobook Deals

The night before I left for my road trip to Tampa I bought a few audiobooks knowing I needed some entertainment for the drive. The following are what I found and the prices. All are whispersync deals.

I was craving gothic horror and ghosts and these all fit the bill, although, I don't recommend listening while driving through the boonies such as I did unless you really enjoy fear. 

Wicker's Bog by Mike Duran


Blurb:
Every autumn, when the weather turned and the wind came off the marsh, the dark waters of Wickers Bog gave up its ghosts and reawakened the old yarns. 

Julene Ella Haddan is about to be drawn into one of them.

It was a grey, joyless day, when young Julene heard the song of the siren and followed its melody into the enchanted swamp... a journey which led her into a tale of murder and deceit. It's only the fated who hear the siren. Yet Julene's fate now seems bound to the fabled Lady of Lisenby, the spectral gatekeeper of the Bog, queen of the haunted deep. However, is it justice the Lady seeks or is Julene the siren's next victim? 


Myth and mystery collide in this tale of Southern Gothic horror.

Kindle was .99 and I upgraded to audio for another 1.99

Angela by Adam M. Booth



Blurb:
"I left her when she was eight. Just a child. Too young to be alone. I killed myself because I could never atone for the things He made me do. There is something wrong with my family, you see. A fear runs through us, through our blood. A fear that circles above us, shredding the sky and clawing at our hearts, and now, from a deathless realm, I am forced to watch as my lonely daughter is tortured by the life I gave her to endure. No father should see the things I've seen, but then no father should do the things I did. 

Forgive me Angela."


ANGELA, a bleak and unflinching tale in which we meet a lonely, middle aged woman who must live with the legacy of her family's dark secret, the madness that grows in the absence of love, and a closet full of delicate skeletons.


ANGELA is available as part the collection TERMINAL by the same author.

I bought the Kindle for .99 and upgraded to audio for 1.99

Turn of the Screw by Henry James



Blurb:
Academy Award, Golden Globe, and Emmy winner Emma Thompson lends her immense talent and experienced voice to Henry James' Gothic ghost tale, The Turn of the Screw.

When a governess is hired to care for two children at a British country estate, she begins to sense an otherworldly presence around the grounds. Are they really ghosts she's seeing? Or is something far more sinister at work?


Having performed in films based on some of the greatest works in literature - including Sense and Sensibility, Howards End, Much Ado About Nothing, and Henry V - Thompson is no stranger to the classics, and she lends a graceful eloquence to this moody, macabre story. Joined by listener favorite Richard Armitage, who performs the prologue, Thompson reinvigorates this psychological thriller of life, death, evil, and the unknown.

The Kindle was free and I upgraded to audio for 1.99.

I can't guarantee these prices as they can change over time. Reviews for all these books coming soon!

Web of Deceit by Susan Sleeman: An Agents Underfire Novel

This is a fantastic mystery/thriller!



My Review:

Kate is an FBI agent and tech nerd. She's working on a team to find her estranged brother-in-law and sister's killer Fenton Rhodes and has custody of her niece Lilly.

I really like Kate, even though an FBI agent she isn't the girl who works in the field but behind the scenes with a computer so when faced with life-endangering situations she has to stop and think what should she do. She's also not the maternal type but loves and protects her niece with everything she has.

There's a little romance thing going between her and Sam, an officer who is the work in the field kind of guy. Together they're a great pair and there's just enough romantic play to be fun but not enough to slow or take away from the story.

The plot is intriguing, suspenseful and realistic. It's an exciting mystery. thriller!

Amazon/Audible

This weeks deal's are sure to quicken your pulse and keep the pages turning and your ears glued to the audio!

My Sweet Audrina by V.C. Andrews the movie

If you've been following my blog for while, you know My Sweet Audrina is one of my all time favorite books. I was highly disappointed in the movie.



My thoughts:

I first have to say this is one of my favorite books. I've read the story several times and listened to the audio a couple so I had to watch the movie. For me, knowing the book so well the movie is seriously lacking. They chose a few scenes from the book and stuck them together into what they call a movie. The book is so long it could be a mini-series. I'm more than disappointed. I'm horrified with everything they left out.

Audrina is a sad, confused and timid little girl into a young lady who gains backbone through the horrors her family exposes her to and eventually owns her sexuality which is the general idea through the whole story. Piece by piece things are revealed. The movie flies through everything, leaving out vital information and even killing Audrina's baby sister who is born with disabilities but not as slow as everyone thinks. I was flabbergasted they cut her part out completely.

If all you do is watch the movie you'll never know just how wonderful this story is. My advice, read the book.
