Crash & Burn - Abigail Roux,J. F. Harding

I read this book when it came out and knew it to be amazing. The audio sure didn't make it any less so.
And Harding's voice/accent for Liam, who played a large role in this one, can only be described as perfection.

Reading progress update: I've read 1%.
Crash & Burn - Abigail Roux,J. F. Harding

“Grady,” Ty said after just two rings. Even though he’d resigned from the Bureau a year ago, he still answered his phone as if he expected someone to be calling him to go kill something.
“Hey, doll,” Zane drawled. “How’s your day going?”
“Pretty good, actually. What’s up?”
“I had a thought.”
“God help us,” Ty said under his breath.

 

 

 

Happy sigh - back with my boys again

'The Bone Orchard' it's a lovely ghost story or is that a ghostly love story...
The Bone Orchard - Greg Tremblay,Abigail Roux

I'm not a big fan of ghost stories but given that it's getting to that time of year...Halloween! Folks, it's just a few days away. I decided that it's good to have exceptions to every rule and besides this one's by Abigail Roux and seriously the woman knows how to write a story and Nick J. Russo was the narrator so it had strong possibilities and my guess-timate was correct.

 

At just over 3 hours this works well for an evenings entertainment. I loved this story of good vs evil as US Marsal Ambrose Shaw hunts down 'Missouri' Boone Jennings, there is no limit to what he'll do or sacrifice to catch this man and see him brought to justice. But it's up to Pinkerton Detective Ezra Johns to ensure that Ambrose's sacrifice isn't in vain. Ambrose and Ezra soon find out though that Jennings is an evil that even death can't stop leaving Ambrose and Ezra to spend eternity together...loving each other and keeping justice in the west.

 

'The Bone Orchard' was a fun way to recognize the time of year and Ambrose and Ezra were a pretty spooktacular pairing and while I enjoyed this story from start to finish it was the ending that I enjoyed the most but I'm not going to spoil it for anyone so I'm just going to say that the ending was definitely not what I was expecting and I really like how it brought things full circle. 

 

I really enjoyed this book as an audio story...it just worked for me in way that I'm not sure reading the story would have. Nick J. Russo's voices were very much in tune with how I imagined these characters to sound...especially Ambrose and when that happens it just makes the story experience that much more enjoyable for me. 

 

While I didn't find this to be a 'scary' story, I did find it to be interesting and as always the narration was spot on...taking this from a good story to something that's probably going to become a holiday tradition for me. I mean really cowboys or ghostly cowboys, evil psycho villains, haunted hotels and jail cells all rolled up into a story that's scary enough to be spooky but not enough to keep me up at night is just the type of Halloween story that I enjoy.

An audio book of 'The Bone Orchard' was graciously provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

House of Furies
House of Furies - Madeleine Roux
This was an interesting novel. This was a novel that I went blind into, as it looked interesting and spooky so I went for it. I didn’t realize that it was the beginning of a series as it ended without a huge cliffhanger but it concluded with a powerful punch. I will continue with the next novel as I need to see what happens with the characters and what will happen at Coldthistle House. I am hoping there will be more birds, that Louisa will take hold of her heritage and that Lee will make an appearance.
 
When Louisa is offered a job at Coldthistle House she figures that she is gaining shelter and employment. Secrecy, death, excitement and horror was not on her list Louisa lived day-by-day until she met up with Granny. Granny is known to the guests of Coldthistle House as Mrs. Haylam and Louisa feels that Granny undergoes a transformation when she bears the official title on the premises. Louisa may know the way of the streets but when she gets to Coldthistle House the rules have changed. She becomes relatively bright as the days pass but she has not grasp who she really is. Following the orders given to her my Granny, Louisa does her job but there are other things that Louisa is interested in while living in the house.
 
Who exactly are the individuals who stay and reside there? The longer Louisa stays, the more she realizes this is not the place she believed it to be. Is this really a place that Louisa wants to stay at to save up her money or should she leave now while she can? It’s a hard choice and it gets to be more difficult the longer she stays. Helping out Lee, she finds that this simple task is far from simple. The ending was nonstop action and I was torn for who I wanted to succeed. I can’t wait to see what transpires in the next novel.
 
I am using this novel for Halloween Bingo for my Terrifying Women square.  Novel written by Madeleine Roux.
