One of my favorite authors backlist books becomes available on audio. I am all in and boy does this narration deliver big time. I felt the characters tension and fear as so many dark elements of humans were at play at an amusement park.ย

A cozy mystery on an Australian island, plus partying on a yacht! Sign me up. This was a fun story and it even had my favoriteโ€ฆturtles! I knew who the killer was early but thatโ€™s normal with a cozy.ย 
All in all it was a good solid read.ย

Romance, Mystery and Magic is blended together to make this one a fantastic read!ย 

I loved the movie Mr and Mrs Smith, this book has the same vibe however itโ€™s a bit more enchanting and doesnโ€™t get quite as bloody. ย 

Find your HEA in this magical mystery!

I went into this book blind and had no clue what to expect but it definitely wasnโ€™t what the book was about. This made it more compelling and hooked me from the beginning trying to understand where the story could possibly be heading.ย 

I loved the combination of voices and I think this a great read for this moment in our history of sexuality.ย 

My only reasoning for it not being a five star for me, was that I needed more connection and feeling from the characters.ย 

Beautifully written!

Oh Sally, you have done it again! Your writing wiggles itโ€™s way into my head and Iโ€™m loving all the suspense building up and THEN, when the ending twist happens I always shed a few tears.ย 
This is a great one yall!ย
