Sarah Holt wants nothing more than to win the Burke and Duke internship and mentor under some of the country’s top architectural minds. The only obstacle between Sarah and her goal is a jilted ex-lover hell-bent on sabotaging her career. When Sarah meets Leo Russell, an unlikely undergraduate, the attraction is instantaneous, and all her best-laid plans begin to unravel. For the first time in her life, Sarah considers the fact that there may be one thing more important to her than her ambition.

It’s very rare that I devour an audio book in one sitting but I couldn’t stop listening to this story. It is beautifully written and narrated and a heartwarming and sometimes breaking love story. I don’t want to spoil it so I won’t say any more but you won’t be disappointed.

John "Slim" Hardy, a heavy drinker and disgraced soldier turned bumbling private detective, is hired to investigate Ted Douglas, an investment banker who slips out of work every Friday to visit a desolate cove on the Lancashire coast. There, he walks to the shore, opens an old book, and begins to read aloud. His wife thinks he's having an affair. Slim thinks he's insane. The truth is more incredible than either could imagine. The Man by the Sea is the sensational debut novel by Jack Benton, a classic story of love, betrayal, murder, and intrigue.

I really enjoyed this audio and thought the narration and the story was really good. This story was engaging and I loved the battered detective trying to work out what was going on whilst battening some serious demons of his own. I am going to look out for more by this author and also some more audios by the narrator as he had a lovely tone for audios.

One man obsessed with power. One woman prepared to sacrifice everything to stop him. One war that changed the world. "World War three lasted 12 days. Twelve days was all it took for mankind to devastate the planet and almost eradicate the human race. No victor emerged from the ashes and billions lost their lives. We survivors lived through the bleakest of winters. A primal existence became the new order, and the little that remained of our humanity hung in the balance..."

This audio throws together a novice crime writer with cerebral palsy and a guy with serious anxiety and OCD issues as they try to solve a series of murders that are happening but no one believes them that they are murders just unfortunate accidents. I was blown away by this book and really enjoyed it.

The last thing Kaylee wants to do is participate in a childish scavenger hunt - especially inside the abandoned retirement home on the edge of town. When she finds a bruised, deaf boy hiding inside one of the rooms, she vows to lead him to safety - only to discover the front doors are now padlocked, and her friends are nowhere to be found. Kaylee is about to learn that not everything that goes "bump in the night" is imaginary, and sometimes there are worse things to fear than ghosts.

Another great chapter in Katrina and Jade’s world of financial fraud and journalism. This time Katrina is taking some time off as they visit an environmentalist but in typical Katharine style there is soon a story to be found. I love these books and was not disappointed although I missed Kats uncle in this one.

I love this series because they are always getting into so much trouble as bad luck seems to follow Beth and Donovan. Seriously I would stay away from being friends with these two because it’s dangerous for your health. I was not disappointed by this audio it’s exciting and as always the narration is great.
