Colleen Cross has penned a fun cozy mystery. It was an easy listen with narrator Petrea Burchard and she did well at drawing me back to the story if I got distracted while driving. Yes I listened to the entire audiobook on an epic drive interstate. I enjoyed the journey with Cen and her crazy aunt. There was some good banter and twists. It was light-hearted and easy listen.

For over 20 years, psychologist Professor Richard Wiseman has examined the quirky science of everyday life. In Quirkology, he navigates the backwaters of human behavior, discovering the telltale signs that give away a liar, the secret science behind speed dating and personal ads, and what a person's sense of humour reveals about the innermost workings of their mind - all along paying tribute to others who have carried out similarly weird and wonderful work.

An enjoyable listen for when you're driving or on the train. Lots of interesting studies and learning about typical patterns of human behaviour might have you laughing and/or slapping your head. Every time I had a listen it provided me with interesting topics of conversation... dog poo jumpers, measuring walking speed, stealing from a bank.

Five years after her first stay as a foreign exchange student, American librarian Liyah returns to the Middle East.

When a favor for a friend thrusts her into the path of beguiling billionaire Asad Sharif, Liyah’s sensible life may become something far more...sensual. Liyah is ensnared by Asad’s seductive charm, but she’s way out of her depth. However, with a push from Asad’s meddling sister, Liyah is soon leading the lavish lifestyle of a sheikha.

Adored listening to this audiobook narrated by Erin Coker. She was flawless in her narration of the Sharif Sheikhs, doing both Asaid and Liyah. I've enjoyed a few Leslie North audiobooks previously and this one was an easy listen and I was swept along from the start. There were emotional hills for the two main characters to climb, peppered with bits to make me smile, some heat, seduction and of course HEA.

All it takes is one night of passion to change your life forever. Layla’s trip to the Middle East started off with a bang. Amid the sultry heat and exotic luxury of Dubai, she shared a single night of passion in the arms of a sexy stranger. Layla can’t say she regrets it, until she walks into her new HR job and comes face to face with her one-night stand. She never thought she’d see the sinfully handsome Sheikh again, but his icy reception makes it clear he wants nothing to do with her.

I really enjoyed this audiobook. Zahir and Layla had some great banter, I was hooked from the moment they met in the coffee shop. Craig Van Ness did a brilliant job at narrating this book from the foreplay to the actual play. This is the third book in a trilogy, I haven't listened to the first two (about the other two Almasi brothers) but this was a great stand alone - I didn't feel like I missed anything.

Glade Io is a trained killer. Marked at a young age as an individual with violent tendencies, she was taken from her family and groomed to be a Datapoint—a biotech-enabled analyst who carries out the Culling. She is designed to identify and destroy any potential humans that threaten the colonies: those marked as lawbreakers, unproductive or sick. But when she’s kidnapped by rogue colonists known as the Ferrymen, everything Glade thinks she knows about the colonies, and The Authority that runs them, collapses into doubt.

Firstly Stacey Glemboski made this audiobook for me. I loved listening to her voice, she captivated me with her different characters and I was drawn into this sy-fy world. Amazing! Now to Ramona Finn, I picked up this audiobook because of the blurb, the idea of The Culling was unique and intrigued me. I loved the Hunger Game and the blurb reminded me of that and I wasn't disappointed. It was great, but not the same. It has unique characters and unique gizmos and technology. I loved Kupier and warmed to Glade by the end of the book. Can't wait for the next in the series!

Great narrator choice for this audiobook, I instantly became engaged! This is my first historical romance and I can see the appeal. Normally I read/listen to contemporary Romance, but this one had me enthralled. I came to really feel for Emily and James over the 7 hours. Jean Wilde does a fantastic job of narrating this series and drawing me into the story. It's like a dirty Jane Austen.

There is something magical about Machelle's voice - it's sooo comforting and perfect for a cozy mystery. I really enjoyed this cozy, it's my first audiobook cozy and it was easy to pick up and listen to through the week. Perhaps it's because it centres around dogs and I love dogs! lol! I thought the plot with Andrew and Olivia was amusing, especially the lengths she went to avoid a 'proposal'. But I really enjoyed the mystery, I didn't guess who dunnit from the beginning.
