I came across this book when it was an Audible daily deal, and now I am hooked on the series. I usually have a clue as to the whodunit, however I was stumped worth the twists and turns this tale took. Richard Armitage is a fabulous narrator (just ask about my love for him in my audiobook groups!) Her kept me completely enthralled by the story. I am now going back and purchasing the first Jackman and Evans tale and will read and listen to more.

4.5 stars I enjoyed the first book in this series and was looking forward to this installment. I liked Erin's story more than Parker's. There was just something so hopeful about her story. You can't help but cheer for her as she overcomes the crappy past. I love the Hudson family and want them to adopt me. Enjoyable narration that kept me involved the the story.

More autobiographical than I was expecting

Audio review I am hooked on true crimes, and with the Golden State Killer again recently again being in the news, it was time for me to finally read/listen to this book. Whilst I liked it for the most part, it was also a lot about Michelle -I get it, she studied this case for many years, but it was a lot of "I this, I that" rather that about the case a lot of the time. I am sorry though that she didn't live to see the day he was arrested and sentenced. I liked the narration a lot. She brought the case to life with her reading. I do have the series lined up ready to watch on Netflix, so I guess that will be my next step in this story and case.

Enjoyable

I came across this story when i was looking for a new cozy mystery series. I don't do much paranormal however i enjoyed our Casper in this one. Fun narration (though a couple of times I thought she sounded like Jane from Daria (And now I am showing my age). I liked our snarky leading lady Mitzy and the spark between her and the Sheriff. I look forward to more of this series

Erin Mallon is my favourite female narrator, and when I saw she was writing a series, I will admit that I wasn't expecting too much for the story. I was pleasantly surprised (sorry Erin) with how much I adored Flirtasaurus. Great character and story development, fun and flirty writing had me listening with much enjoyment. And of course wonderful narration. I am looking forward to more in this series

Another adorable installment in the Cozy Corgi series. I am again reminded not to ever visit Estes Park - their murder rate is way too high for my liking lol. Quarellsome Quartz hits a lot closer to home for Fred and Watson than normal. I liked the way the family circled the wagons and were full of so much belief in each other. It was a bit more emotional than the other books in the series so far. Angie Hickson has given another superb narration. Listening to each book is like coming home, you know you are going to get drama, but also a lot of comfort.

3.5 stars. This is like a tale in two sittings. The first half of this stort was fantastic, full of emotion and had me tearing up, so darn angry an needing more. The second half was a lot of... nothing. I adored that Coert and Cady got their crap together, but it was a couple of hundred pages of blissful living. It could have been condensed so much, but this could just be me. My least favourite of the Magdalene series 😟 Wonderful narration as always by Erin Mallon, who could read me the phone book and i would be entranced.

Fun and frustating

I love a historical story, and James and Violet's is a fun one. Even when i wanted to reach into the story and shake some sense into them both, but particularly Violet. I love the banter between our lovelies, however I got so completely and utterly frustrated at the games she plays, and the lac of communication between them both. It does make for a lot of spark when they do get their stuff sorted out. You know there is plenty of love between them, but when outside influences come into play things go awry. I am a Joel junkie, so I knew I would enjoy his narration. Ms Chase is a new to me narrator, and she is delightful. She brings Violet to life. An enjoyable tale to listen to during isolation.

Get ready for the power play

Throw everything you think you know about Posey Adler out the window when you pick up Power Play. Her story was everything and more I could have ever asked for. Now, I will admit that I need an organisational chart keep up with who is whom in this series, but after a bit I get my head around who everyone belongs too. Posey and Boon are just goals. Their journey from friends to so much more is relatable. I am sure most of us have had to deal with one or more of the things that they deal with during the tale. I love how they dealt with things. It was great to see some of the Assassins Pt 1 throughout. Though I have to say, Posey's dad Shea I went from laughing at him to rolling my eyes. He really was acting like a 4 year old throwing a tantrum a lo of the time. Now the narration. I really enjoyed Tanya Eby's portrayal of Posey. She drew me right into Posey's life. She was fun and fliratious and all the emotion shone through. However, Stephen Dexter, whilst wonderful as the other characters in the story, was quote monotonal to me a Boon. It was like he was narrating a a quite stalker story, nice and quiet waiting for a big BAM surprise However, this could just be me, and it didn't make me want to stop listening at all, and wouldn't stop me from listening to him again. It was great to get back into Assassin-land, and look forward to more of the next generation.
