Zero Chill (Curtis and Reynolds #3) – Carolyn Elizabeth

A quiet life doesn’t seem to be on the cards for Corey Curtis and Thayer Reynolds. Even when they’re not looking for trouble, it finds them. This time, trouble comes in the form of a torn prescription on a dead and frozen body. Guess who signed the prescription? And who is waiting for the body … Continue reading Zero Chill (Curtis and Reynolds #3) – Carolyn Elizabeth

2020 – My favourite books of the year

I often have trouble making decisions but this year, it seems borderline impossible. It doesn’t help - in regards to making lists - that it was a particularly good year in terms of books. I started this list of my favourite books of the year with twenty-six titles. When I tried to lower that number, … Continue reading 2020 – My favourite books of the year

The Other Side of Forestlands Lake – Carolyn Elizabeth

It took only one book by Carolyn Elizabeth for me to decide that she was a must-read author. This is her third (I also read a very short story) and it proves true again. Twenty-six years ago, stuff happened and a child disappeared. Twenty-five years ago, more stuff happened, Willa and Lee had their first … Continue reading The Other Side of Forestlands Lake – Carolyn Elizabeth

Dirt Nap (Curtis and Reynolds #2) – Carolyn Elizabeth & Lori Prince (narrator)

Thayer and Corey are one of my favourite couples and that probably explains why I think of Carolyn Elizabeth’s books as mostly happy. Even though this one begins with a reminder of Corey’s injuries from Gallows Humor and a grisly crime scene and is full of gory and crawly details. I just love the relationship … Continue reading Dirt Nap (Curtis and Reynolds #2) – Carolyn Elizabeth & Lori Prince (narrator)

Gallows Humor (Curtis and Reynolds #1) – Carolyn Elizabeth & Lori Prince (narrator)

I loved this book when I read it last December, and when I found out Lori Prince was narrating it, it felt like Christmas again. I knew she’d be perfect for Corey Curtis’s voice. I wasn’t sure about Thayer Reynolds’ voice at first, but Prince quickly convinced me. Gallows Humor was one of my favourite … Continue reading Gallows Humor (Curtis and Reynolds #1) – Carolyn Elizabeth & Lori Prince (narrator)

At Words Point – Carolyn Elizabeth

A very short but fast-paced story, just enough to give the reader a taste of what could be: intriguing characters with hints at a backstory that make me want to know more about them, swashbuckling pirates and an heiress who’s sexy, kind and brave, a potentially fascinating world-building and the possibility of adventures. A quick … Continue reading At Words Point – Carolyn Elizabeth

Dirt Nap (Curtis and Reynolds #2) – Carolyn Elizabeth

This book is making me very happy! I was looking forward to it, and I’ve written not long ago about second novels sometimes being a little (or more) disappointing because they’re really hard on authors. Dirt Nap escaped that curse beautifully. It has everything I loved in Gallows Humor, only better. First of all, it … Continue reading Dirt Nap (Curtis and Reynolds #2) – Carolyn Elizabeth

Gallows Humor (Curtis and Reynolds #1) – Carolyn Elizabeth

One of my favourite things as a reader is discovering new (to me) authors. Another is when a debut novel is so good it’s hard to believe it’s a debut. I got both with this book. Corey Curtis doesn’t fluster easily. She’s very good at her job as an Autopsy Services Coordinator at Jackson City … Continue reading Gallows Humor (Curtis and Reynolds #1) – Carolyn Elizabeth
