Audiobook Review: Texas Danger (The Marshalls) by Jean Brashear (Author), Eric G. Dove (Narrator)
Texas Danger (Texas Heroes: The Marshalls #3) - Jean Brashear

 

Audiobook Review: Texas Danger (The Marshalls) by Jean Brashear (Author), Eric G. Dove (Narrator)

 

She needs a hero. Is he it? Samantha and Chase have nothing in common. He's a working cowboy. She's a society girl. He's struggling to save the family business. She's running for her life. Neither want to need each other, but their circumstances prove that they do. Can the rancher and debutante escape everything that's holding them back and build something that's true? Texas Danger is built on minefields and manipulations, heartbreaks and revelations. Brashear guides us through the danger zone with skillful precision, while Dove excites with masterful, action packed narration.

good book and characters
Texas Conquest - Holly C Wyse

Angie and her sister Olivia are feeding the Texas army in their diner type castino.  But what they are really doing is gathering information to give to the soldiers that that are fighting to free Texas from Mexico. The sisters are also trying to supply food to the starving Texan freedom fighters. Lorenzo is a convict soldier. He is also a spy for the Texans. Then Lorenzo’s attention is on Angie and the last thing she wants is attention from a Mexican soldier. Even a handsome and persistence mexican soldier. Even though Lorenzo has saved Angie from being harmed. Angie’s mind tells her she can’t trust Lorenzo but her heart says different. Lorenzo has a past he can’t forget or share. Because of his past Lorenzo feels he can’t trust anyone especially a woman. But somehow Angie and Lorenzo must learn to trust and work together for texas and the chance of freedom.

I enjoyed this book. I loved the twists and turns in this story. I loved how Angie and her sister Olivia did not let the fact they were women prevent them from helping the Texan freedom fighters as much as the could even putting them in dangers way. I felt like I was there with Angie and Olivia which as far as I am concerned is a tribute to the author’s writing. I like the plot of this story a lot. This made chuckle at times. I really enjoyed how Lorenzo and Angie interacted with each other. I liked the characters a lot nd the ins and outs of this historical novel and I recommend.

Audiobook Review: Texas Star (The Marshalls, #2) by Jean Brashear (Author), Eric G. Dove (Narrator)
Texas Star - Eric G. Dove,Jean Brashear

 

Texas Star is everything a romantic can ask for. Brashear has a way with a pen. Standing on the edge of forever Josh and Elena are realists who must take a leap of faith to find happily ever after. On the run from her past Elena is scared to trust anyone including herself. Josh is her only chance out of the abyss of darkness that surrounds her. Can he protect her without endangering himself?  Brashear and Dove are a lethal combination.  Dove is a master at delivery with his velvety voice and soulful vocal stylings. Brashear uses her words to tempt readers into a world of dangerous love and unforgettable characters.  Suspense has never been so seductive.

Eye on the Struggle: Ethel Payne, the First Lady of the Black Press - James McGrath Morris

I am just binging on non-fiction, as it grabbing me so much more than fiction. I went a little OTT at the library and pulled a bunch of books. I have two read-a-thons I am doing towards the latter half of the month.

 

 

1. No One Would Listen: A True Financial Thriller by Harry Markopolos

         My current read is how Markopolos discovered the Bernie Madoff Ponzi scheme and was the whistleblower that brought Madoff down. He is not kind AT ALL to the SEC. 

 

2. Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption by Bryan Stevenson

           I want to learn more about criminal justice reform, so I am starting here.

 

3. Lafayette in the Somewhat United States by Sarah Vowell

              For the July 4th holiday, I am trying Vowell for the first time.

 

4. Negroland: A Memoir by Margo Jefferson

               Heard nothing but good things about this book.

 

5. The True American: Murder and Mercy in Texas by Anand Giridharadas

              True Crime that doesn't involve Wall Street.

 

6. Lethal Warriors: When the New Band of Brothers Came Home, Uncovering the Tragic Reality of PTSD by David Philipps

                This is a really long title.

 

7. Zodiac Unmasked: The Identity of America's Most Elusive Serial Killer Revealed by Robert Graysmith

                 True Crime.

 

8. Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI by David Grann

                      True Crime plus history.

 

9. Believe Me: A Memoir of Love, Death, and Jazz Chickens by Eddie Izzard

                      Not a true crime book, lol. Manicure on the cover is beautifully done.

 

10. Eye on the Struggle: Ethel Payne, the First Lady of the Black Press by James McGrath Morris

                    Also not a true crime book. I wish she was more of a household name today as she was when she was working.
