Reading progress update: I've read 10%.
The High Tide Club - Mary Kay Andrews

This book isn't making a lot of sense. A woman hires a lawyer to stop the state from taking her land and tells her to find her three friends who were part of a so called High Tide Club. Then she tells her that one of them still sees her and the other friend is dead. So that's just one friend she needs to find. This is my puzzled face.

Good-bye Sam and Jory. Hello Aaron and Duncan...
Parting Shot - Tristan James,Mary Calmes

'Parting Shot' is the final book in Mary Calmes's series 'A Matter of Time' and while the previous books have all focused on the relationship between Sam and Jory in this one we are given a closer look at Duncan Stiel and Aaron Sutter...one of Jory's ex's. 


We've met both of these characters in previous books in this series and I have to admit when I first read this book I wasn't sure how well this was going to work out for me. While Duncan was a little bit intriguing and I was ok with finding out more about  him, I was in all honesty not a fan of Aaron Sutter. This was not a character that I wanted to be bothered with but as always Ms Calmes knew better and she drew me into a story about that got me involved and showed me a different side of Mr Sutter and gave him the perfect match in Duncan Stiel. Someone who could go toe to toe with him and not be intimidated by his wealth and for Duncan Aaron was bold enough to step into his world and face danger with him and have his back...these two men worked much better as a pairing than I had anticipated wrapping up this series with a story that was every bit as interesting and enjoyable as anything that has gone before in the series.


So when I decided to revisit 'A Matter of Time' on audio and saw that Tristan James was the narrator well you can be sure that I was more looking forward to getting to this book. While I enjoyed my adventures with Sam and Jory I have to say this was my favorites...


Tristan James + Mary Calmes = one of my best happy places and I will be going back.

TBR Thursday
The Shoe on the Roof - Will Ferguson
Vlad: The Last Confession - C.C. Humphreys
The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning: How to Free Yourself and Your Family from a Lifetime of Clutter - Margareta Magnusson
Still Life - Louise Penny
Now I Rise (The Conqueror's Trilogy) - Kiersten White
The House at Baker Street (A Mrs Hudson and Mary Watson Investigation) - Michelle Birkby

In the docket for the next week and a bit....


For my 2018 PopSugar challenge, The Shoe on the Roof by Will Ferguson will be my book about mental health.


Still Life by Louise Penny will be the P entry for my Women Authors A-Z list.  Now I Rise by Kiersten White will likewise be my W entry.


And then, just for fun, Vlad : the Last Confession by C.C. Humphreys.  I met Humphreys as last year's When Words Collide conference here in Calgary.  As a result, I recommended that my public library buy his latest book, the above.  Now it is my duty to read it.  :)


The House at Baker Street just seemed like too much fun to pass up and I've been patiently waiting for it for some time.  The same with The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning, which I hope will kick-start my spring cleaning (if spring ever deigns to show its face here).


Have a lovely weekend, friends and happy reading!

One last time with Sam and Jory...
But For You - Mary Calmes,Finn Sterling

Ok so this is the last book in the series with Sam and Jory as the MCs and we have yet another new narrator. This time it's Finn Sterling and once again the narration was good but the voices just weren't working for me and while I liked the story because I wasn't over the moon with the narrators voices for Sam and Jory things were ok but not awesome.


And again if I have a chance I'll give this one a real review in the near further but really this series has been around for quite a while so I'm not sure that there's much more to say that hasn't already been said, but for now I'm done and on to the next book.

And yet more fun with Sam and Jory...
Bulletproof - Jeff Gelder,Mary Calmes

Ok so real quick here this time it's Jeff Gelder who's giving us the voices of Sam and Jory and unfortunately while the narration was ok, but I was once again not quite feeling a connection between the voices and the characters. So all in all an enjoyable listening experience but not quite hitting the 'oh-wow-this-is-awesome' zone. But it was Mary Calmes, Sam and Jory how could I resist? and again if time permits I'll revisit this and hopefully do a better job of creating a real review.
