EMILY AND EINSTEIN by LINDA FRANCIS LEE
Emily and Einstein - Linda Francis Lee

Audiobook

3-1/2 out of 5 stars. Cute and kind of sad book. I have a little barker who single barks "Let me in!", "Pick me up!", "I want some!", etc. He's so demanding it cracks me up. So Einstein's little exclamations and Emily understanding them was believable to me.

The "old man" part I didn't understand. The quitting and not accepting paying jobs in New York for a career as a writer I didn't understand. She's not Nora Roberts and she's just starting out. That wasn't responsible especially living in the Dakota. And the marathon race didn't seem very pivotal to me even as much as the author was trying to portray it as such. Those are the reasons for my lower rating.

Interesting beginning to a series
Slade, Book 1 in Team Greywolf Series - Eva Gordon

Cricket is a runt who has had to prove herself all her life. She is good at her job but wants out of her next assignment, calming Slade. Slade is working through grief and is a bit out of control. They spend time together and work together, until they cross a line. Danger pulls them apart and they realize they need to be together despite rules. I enjoyed the story although I found the narrator a little off, distracting.

I received this audiobook as a gift, and this is my unsolicited review.

Interesting mystery and sleuth
By P.B. Ryan Still Life With Murder (Nell Sweeney Mystery Series) (Volume 1) (3rd Edition) [Paperback] - P.E. Ryan

I enjoyed listening to this story which is the first I have read by Ms. Ryan. The historical aspect kept me interested. Nell Sweeney has survived a rough start to life and found herself in a better situation. Faced an unusual request, Nell finds herself using her smarts and past to find out who the murder was. I liked how strong she was and how committed to the truth as well. I look forward to reading or listening to more by this author.

I received a copy of the audiobook, and this is my unsolicited review.

SYNC 2017 - Week 1

AudiobookSync's Eighth Season has finally begun! 

This week's selections are:

 ✒ Keep in mind that the titles are available only within a specific time frame - so hurry!

The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde | Read by Greg Wise

Published by Naxos AudioBooks

Oscar Wilde’s enduring masterpiece, this fable of innocence and corruption, purity and decay has become a true classic. The beautiful, narcissistic Dorian Gray, torn between the influence of cynical hedonist Lord Henry Wotton and tortured artist Basil Hallward, sells the beauty of his soul in exchange for external perfection. Ultimately, he cannot escape the disfigurement of sin. Wilde’s remarkable wit and memorable, epigrammatic lines dazzle in audiobook form!

The Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich | Read by Charlotte Parry, Christian Coulson

Published by Hachette Audio

Debut author Dawn Kurtagich is dead on in this terrifying psychological thriller!

Over two decades have passed since the fire at Elmbridge High, an inferno that took the lives of five teenagers. Not much was known about the events leading up to the tragedy - only that one student, Carly Johnson, vanished without a trace...

...until a diary is found hidden in the ruins.

But the diary, badly scorched, does not belong to Carly Johnson. It belongs to Kaitlyn Johnson, a girl who shouldn't exist. Who was Kaitlyn? Why did she come out only at night? What is her connection to Carly?

The case has been reopened. Police records are being reexamined: psychiatric reports, video footage, text messages, e-mails.

And the diary.

The diary that paints a much more sinister version of events than was ever made publicly known.
