Deadly Cures by Kelly Moore pulled me in immediately. The premise of the book really intrigued me, I loved how the author developed the characters and had so many twists. Seth Thompson brought the characters to life with his voice. His emotions added to the enjoyment of the book. The book has some very thought provoking scenes, moments I needed tissues, times I was on edge, and times I was laughing. I loved it!

The Lies She Told by N.L. Hinkens is a gripping listen. The premise of high school bullying consequences, revenge and guilt provide the perfect background for this book. Hailey is a victim of stalking in this book, with questions of who to trust. There is edge of the seat suspense, numerous suspects, and well developed characters. The book moves at a fast pace. Brittany Goodwin was excellent in her performance. She added the right emotions for the tension in this book. Her pace of delivery was perfect. I was very surprised by the ending of this book.

Bonefish Blues by Steven Becker pulled me in immediately with its vibrant imagery. I loved hearing about fly fishing in the Florida Keys. The descriptions were so vivid and painted great pictures. The premise of the book was intriguing. It was great fun for me to listen to this book and hear characters that are in other series by the author. It was like catching us with old friends. Paul J. McSorley was spot on perfect with his narration. He inflects the right emotions into his voice, and I can hear exactly who is speaking by his tone.

Great Story, Fantastic Narration!

Backwater Tide brought back together some of my favorite characters from various books by Steven Becker. I loved having Mac Travis make cameo appearances with Kurt Hunter, Justine and others. This book pulled me in from the very beginning with its incredible imagery, action, and humor. Treasure hunting is a big theme in this story along with the relationship of Kurt Hunter and his boss. I found humor in the ways he tried to out maneuver his boss. Kurt has a panache for finding dead bodies and does not disappoint with this book. He may be rough around the edges, but that is part of his appeal. Paul J McSorely performs this book flawlessly. I could hear exactly who was speaking. He adds the right emotions to the scenes. I highly recommend this book and will definitely listen to more by this author and narrator.

Broken Sword by Kim Loraine pulled me in immediately. I loved how the author tied the Siren's to Excalibur. She writes a very steamy story that is full of unexpected. The imagery is vibrant and paints such clear pictures in my mind. The narration of this duet is top notch! All of the narrators add so much to the book. The emotions conveyed were tangible. This was a new take on Excalibur that I never imagined before. The bonus short story in this listen was so good too!

Delightful Listen!

Guarding Grace by Ann Omasta is a sweet, feel good story. I was pulled into the story immediately by the endearing characters. The author wrote great imagery along with a clean storyline. How can one not fall in love with a Golden Retriever puppy. Sarah L Colton performance was great. She added to my enjoyment of this listen. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. This book is a standalone listen and part of a series. I will definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator.
