The Care and Feeding of Waspish Widows (Feminine Pursuits #2) – Olivia Waite & Morag Sims (narrator)

I am, it seems, one of a few who enjoyed this book more than the first one in Olivia Waite’s Feminine Pursuits series (both books can be read as standalones). While I liked The Lady’s Guide to Celestial Mechanics a lot, I pretty much fell in love with Penelope and therefore with her story. Set … Continue reading The Care and Feeding of Waspish Widows (Feminine Pursuits #2) – Olivia Waite & Morag Sims (narrator)

The Lady’s Guide to Celestial Mechanics (Feminine Pursuits #1) – Olivia Waite & Morag Sims (narrator)

After the death of her father, Lucy Muchelney’s days as an astronomer seem over. After all, as her brother so delicately put it, who would want a female astronomer? Her lover’s wedding to a man is the last straw for the young woman, who runs away to London. Her not-very-well-thought plan is to convince the … Continue reading The Lady’s Guide to Celestial Mechanics (Feminine Pursuits #1) – Olivia Waite & Morag Sims (narrator)

Hosting Holly (Holly Goes to Hollywood, Book 1) – Paris Rivera & Piper Fairweather (narrator)

Everything begins with Holly, a sexy twenty-one-year-old staying with Joyce, but she’s not the most interesting character here. No, that would be Dr Stone, Joyce’s therapist. In real life, she’d make me feel all yikes but this is fantasy, right? Anything goes. But seriously, if your therapist calls you out of the blue and starts … Continue reading Hosting Holly (Holly Goes to Hollywood, Book 1) – Paris Rivera & Piper Fairweather (narrator)

Carmilla & Laura – S.D. Simper & Lois Ridge (narrator)

Carmilla & Laura is a sexier, faster-paced retelling of Carmilla by Sheridan Le Fanu. In her isolated castle, Laura isn’t unhappy, but she’s lonely. When a carriage accident brings a young woman to the schloss, Laura is immediately entranced by her new companion. Carmilla is beautiful and full of wit, despite the strange disease she … Continue reading Carmilla & Laura – S.D. Simper & Lois Ridge (narrator)

When You Least Expect It – Haley Cass & Lori Prince (narrator)

Every once in a while, a new author appears (seemingly) out of nowhere and I fall in love with their books. This year's book crush is Milena McKay. Last year's was Haley Cass. Her debut novel, Those Who Wait, blew me away, I had no idea what I was getting into when I selected it … Continue reading When You Least Expect It – Haley Cass & Lori Prince (narrator)

Hotel Queens – Lee Winter & Angela Dawe (narrator)

I’m not going to add much to my original review, except to say that this was my first Angela Dawe narration (life is weird) and yes, I understand the hype. The narration itself is smooth and spellbinding. She gives each character their own voice, there’s never any risk of mistaking one for another. I wasn’t … Continue reading Hotel Queens – Lee Winter & Angela Dawe (narrator)

It Takes A Miracle – Jamey Moody & April Doty (narrator)

Who said you can’t read (or in this case listen to) Christmas novellas all year long? Twenty-five years ago, Vanessa’s parents forbade her from seeing Makenna, even though Vanessa was sure the other young woman was the love of her life. Twenty-five years later, divorced and a mother, Vanessa comes back to the place where … Continue reading It Takes A Miracle – Jamey Moody & April Doty (narrator)

Death’s Abyss (Sea and Stars #3) – S.D. Simper & Lois Ridge (narrator)

4.5⭐️ - I don’t know how readers who had to wait for this final book in the Sea and Stars series did it, I’m so grateful it was already out when I finished Heart of Silver Flame. After a journey fraught with peril and betrayal, Tallora and Dauriel get the ending they deserve and all … Continue reading Death’s Abyss (Sea and Stars #3) – S.D. Simper & Lois Ridge (narrator)

Record of a Spaceborn Few (Wayfarers #3) – Becky Chambers & Patricia Rodríguez (narrator)

If you’re hoping for breathtaking space fights and loads of action, go find another book. Becky Chambers is much more interested in her characters and their reactions to events than in events themselves. I love the way Chambers sets the atmosphere in her books, and that is almost enough for me to enjoy them. I’m … Continue reading Record of a Spaceborn Few (Wayfarers #3) – Becky Chambers & Patricia Rodríguez (narrator)
