Another Audible 3 for 2 Sale
The Murder of Roger Ackroyd - Agatha Christie,Hugh Fraser
Titan: The Life of John D. Rockefeller, Sr. - Ron Chernow,Grover Gardner
Five Presidents: My Extraordinary Journey with Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, and Ford - George Newbern,Lisa McCubbin,Clint Hill

What a strangely diverse group of books I have ended up with! But at least I found three titles; sometimes I find nothing in the sale pile. We start with what I know is going to be one of those deep tomes; at 35 hours long how can it be anything but--and it is Chernow so it will be well done. Then an Agatha Christie/Hercule Poirot story, which at least I know that even if it is a comparatively light read, it will be a well written and well crafted. And then there is the bit of fluff, which is what I am sure I will get when a retired Secret Service agent and his not quite ghost writer start dishing up on Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon and Carter.

The Labyrinth of the Spirits by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
The Labyrinth of the Spirits - Carlos Ruiz Zafón

The final chapter in the Cemetery of Forgotten Books series follows secret police investigator Alicia Gris, scarred body and soul, as she takes one final case, and finds herself following a deadly trail which begins with a rare book that leads her back into the shadows of Barcelona's dark past, to the horrors of Franco's fascist regime....and even greater evils that some will commit any act to keep hidden.
A brilliant literary thriller that captures a pitch perfect sense of time and place, along with a near Gothic atmosphere that wafts from the pages like fog and the scent of old books, while the tension ratchets up to garotte tautness.

I was drawn in by the first paragraph, and didn't come up for air until I reached the last page.

Highly recommended finale to a highly recommended series.

Thanks to HarperCollins for the eARC in exchange for an honest review.

Under Control - Shannon Stacey

 

 

 

 

BOOK SYNOPSIS


From New York Times bestselling author SHANNON STACEY…

 

Meet the tough, dedicated men of BOSTON FIRE—and the women who turn their lives upside down.

 

When faced with the opportunity to change shifts while staying in the same house, veteran firefighter Derek Gilman jumps at the chance. His new schedule means not working Saturdays, which means more time to spend with his two kids. His divorce may have been amicable, but being a firefighter and a single dad is a lot to juggle. And when fate brings a gorgeous, wealthy woman into his life, he’s pretty sure he can’t handle more than he already is.

 

Olivia McGovern loves plans. She planned to start her own business and planned its growth. It’s earning her seven figures now, but her personal life simply doesn’t exist. Getting trapped in a broken elevator figures in exactly nowhere, and freaking out in front of a sexy firefighter definitely isn’t on the agenda. Especially not one with two kids and an ex.

 

What would have been a random incident with an attractive stranger becomes something more when a charity event brings them back together. They’re from different sides of the tracks, literally—with friends, family and careers to consider. But as Derek and Olivia are discovering, chemistry doesn’t allow for plans, and love doesn’t bother with logistics.

 

Don’t miss the entire Boston Fire series by Shannon Stacey! Heat Exchange, Controlled Burn, Fully Ignited and Hot Response are available now!

Olivia McGovern loves plans so getting stuck in an elevator with a sexy firefighter has freaking out.

The blazing hot chemistry that heats up the pages of this enchanting romance will singe readers as they get to know the strong, compelling characters that easily draw them into their story and charm their way into hearts. The relationship is has a few major obstacles likes plans, distance and insecurities which cause quite a bit of emotional turbulence that tugs at the heart but the romance is sweet and readers can’t help but cheer Olivia and Derek on toward their happily ever after because in a way the characters are very different from each other but at the same time they seem fit and complement each other and what romance reader doesn’t like a real romance with lots of opposition.

 

The smooth flowing plot keeps readers engaged with lots of emotional and compelling events that adds depth and fascination to the story and the steady pace keeps readers glued to the pages as it builds anticipation. The story doesn’t focus on either of the couple’s careers but focuses on the way that those careers and family issues affect their lives and how they must overcome it. This feel good romance will delight readers from beginning to end as they get know the characters from Boston Fire and ensures that want to come back for more.

MIDNIGHT by Erin Hunter
Midnight by Hunter, Erin [HarperCollins, 2005] Hardcover [Hardcover] - Hunter

A new series in the Warriors series has Brambleclaw receiving a dream from Star Clan.  He along with 3 other cats have received the dream.  What does it mean?  Why are the medicine cats not receiving the dreams?

 

I liked this story.  It starts off about a year after the first series ends.  We are now just about on the second generation since Firestar has become the leader of Thunder Clan.  Brambleclaw has to determine what his dream means and how the other cats fit in.  They must work together and travel to Midnight.  I like this group of cats.  We still have Firestar and his generation as well as a few elders but this next generation looks like it might change things up in the status quo.  I liked the Yoda-like character that appears.  I am anxiously waiting to see me niece to get the second book in this series.

Born Bad - Marnie Riches,Samantha Seager... Born Bad - Marnie Riches,Samantha Seager,HarperCollins Publishers Limited

Gritty, contemporary crime drama set in Manchester, two rival gangs with plenty of villains and violence galore. Told by multi voices, but you soon get used to all the different characters as things swiftly fall into place. Who will end up being "king" of South Manchester - get a copy of this book and find out! Loved the style and tempo of this and it was hard to put down as the hard hitting story progressed. My first book by this author but definitely not my last!
