Laurie Ahmadi lives with her husband Omid and her 16 year old daughter Jojo (Joanne)

She is a 911 dispatcher and has been for nearly 20 years, she loves her job and the people in her department, and thinks of them as her family.
The rest of the department feel the same way toward her, and have watched her daughter grow up, and think of Jojo as one of their own, Jojo knows them all and loves visiting the station to see everyone.

Laurie’s husband Omir is the Chief of Police, and is the first Arab American to rise to that position, and Laurie is very, very proud of his achievements.

Whilst at work one day Laurie and her work colleague play their usual game of ‘who can answer first’, Laurie wins and answers the call, it turns out to be one of the worst days of her life!

911 how can I direct your call?
Mama?
Jojo?
Mama? Help me.

Jojo wakes up in pain, she doesn’t know where she is, or how she got there, she is really scared, and where the hell is her best friend Harper?

Kevin is a Pro football player, but why is Jojo in his house, and why is there a beaten bloody corpse in his bathroom?

With things not seeing quite right Jojo and Laurie become detectives and start diving into the clues left behind to try and find out where Harper is, does someone have her? Is she ok?

When Laurie and Jojo stumble across something that should have never been found, they start to think that they don’t know anybody very well at all.

This one will definitely keep you on the edge of your seat, it literally dives straight in to the action, and doesn’t let up for a minute.

**Trigger warnings for Rape/Suicide/Child Abuse**

Narrated by XE Sands, and oh my, I have found myself a new #VoiceCrush

Her voice was absolutely amazing for this story, her male voices were perfect, and I had no problems differentiating between each character, I am currently stalking her other releases, and will be filling up my Wish List on Audible.

About The Book

*Amazon UK Link

Amazon US

When a 911 dispatcher picks up an emergency call to hear her daughter on the line, her worst nightmare becomes reality.
Laurie Ahmadi has worked as a 911 police dispatcher in her quiet Northern California town for nearly two decades. She considers the department her family; her husband, Omid, is its first Arab American chief, and their teenage daughter, Jojo, has grown up with the force. So when Laurie catches a 911 call and, to her horror, it’s Jojo, the whole department springs into action.
Jojo, drugged, disoriented, and in pain, doesn’t remember how she ended up at the home of Kevin Leeds, a pro football player famous for his on-the-field activism and his work with the CapB – “Citizens Against Police Brutality” – movement. She doesn’t know what happened to Kevin’s friend and trainer, whose beaten corpse is also discovered in the house. And she has no idea where her best friend Harper, who was with her earlier in the evening, could be.
But when Jojo begins to dive into Harper’s social media to look for clues to her whereabouts, Jojo uncovers a shocking secret that turns everything she knew about Harper – and the police department – on its head. With everything they thought they could rely on in question, Laurie and Jojo begin to realize that they can’t trust anyone to find Harper except themselves…and time is running out.

Swipe Right For Murder by Derek Milman @DerekMilman @jimmy_books @HachetteAudioUK #BookReview #SwipeRightForMurder #DerekMilman

Hello book friends,

I’m super excited to share my review for this awesome thriller, this is one that you should definitely add to your TBR pile, and if it is already on there, bump it up!

My Thoughts

๐Ÿ…ป๐Ÿ…ถ๐Ÿ…ฑ๐Ÿ†ƒ ๐Ÿ…ผ๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ†ƒ๐Ÿ†‚ ๐Ÿ…ท๐Ÿ…ธ๐Ÿ†ƒ๐Ÿ…ฒ๐Ÿ…ท๐Ÿ…ฒ๐Ÿ…พ๐Ÿ…ฒ๐Ÿ…บ

As soon as I read the synopsis for this book, I knew I had to read it.

A YA gay thriller, where the MC wakes up next to a dead guy!!!

I mean…who wouldn’t want to read that??  Sign. Me. Up!

Aidan is our protagonist in this story, he is 17 years old, and is staying the night in a hotel in New York.

As any young red-blooded male would do, Aidan picks up his phone, and logs into his “Dirty Paws” app (think Grindr) to find himself a hookup for the evening.

Except when he wakes up after his little tryst, his partner for the evening is dead!

After looking around the room to find out what the hell is going on, Aidan finds the mans phone, and looking through it, finds pictures, lot and lots of pictures…of him!

After noticing a small hole in the window, and a terrifying call from an unknown person claiming to know what he has done and who he is, Aidan finds himself on the run, from his friends, from the FBI, and what seems to be some kind of Cult.

This is a case of mistaken identity going horribly wrong, and I loved every second of it, and the nod to Hitchcock throughout the book was fantastic.

Aidan is such a great character, he has a very dry sense of humour and is very self deprecating, which I found adorable, It is a very British thing to do, so I instantly connected with him.

Lots of twist and turns in this one, so make sure your head is screwed on tight, otherwise you may just lose it!

๐ŸŽง๐ŸŽง

Narrated by Jay Ben Markson, who was just a wonderful voice for Aidan, I absolutely loved his mannerisms and narration style.

Grab this one when you can, you won’t regret it!

Enjoy

About The Book

*Amazon UK

Amazon U.S

An epic case of mistaken identity puts a teen looking for a hookup on the run from both the FBI and a murderous cult in this compulsively listenable thriller.
Finding himself alone in a posh New York City hotel room for the night, Aidan does what any red-blooded 17-year-old would do – tries to hook up with someone new. But that lapse in judgement leads him to a room with a dead guy and a mysterious flash drive…two things that spark an epic case of mistaken identity that puts Aidan on the run – from the authorities, his friends, his family, the people who are out to kill him – and especially from his own troubled past.
Inspired by a Hitchcock classic, this whirlwind mistaken-identity caper has razor-sharp humor, devastating emotional stakes, and a thrilling storyline with an explosive conclusion to make this the most compelling YA novel of 2019.

Sleep by C.L Taylor – @callytaylor @AvonBooksUK @HarperCollinsUK #BookReview #Sleep #CLTaylor

Hello book friends,

I am delighted, and very thankful to be part of the audio book tour for this wonderfully twisty psychological thriller, that will keep you on your toes throughout.

My Thoughts

๐Ÿ…ฟ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ…ฟ๐Ÿ…ฐ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ…ด ๐Ÿ…ต๐Ÿ…พ๐Ÿ† ๐Ÿ…ฝ๐Ÿ…ธ๐Ÿ…ถ๐Ÿ…ท๐Ÿ†ƒ ๐Ÿ†ƒ๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ…พ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ†‚

Anna has terrible insomnia, she hasn’t really been able to sleep properly since the accident, the guilt and the memories are eating her up from the inside.

She decides the best thing for her to do is just get away, so she goes as far away from her problems as she possibly can, and accepts a job on a remote Scottish island called Rum.

Getting ready for the busy period, 7 guests are checked into the Bay View Hotel.

Each one of them has a secret, but one has a deadlier secret that Anna doesn’t know about.

Seven strangers. Seven secrets. One deadly lie.

Someoneโ€™s going to sleep and never waking up…

I love a ‘Who-Done-It’ story, and this one was just wonderful, it wasn’t too fast paced, but it gradually sucked you into the story, until the inevitable WTF…..and I didn’t see it coming!

Prepare to turn into a detective while you try and work this one out!

๐ŸŽง๐ŸŽง

Narration by Clare Corbett was excellent, I loved her tone and her very calming voice, but when the sh*t started to hit the fan, I found myself holding my breath many times.
I will certainly be looking out for other books she has narrated.

**Many thanks to Lauren at Avon Books, Harper Collins UK, and the Author for my copy of this audiobook**

Heidi’s Guide to Four Letter Words by Tara Sivec & Andi Arndt @TaraSivec @andi_arndt #BookReview #HeidisGuidetoFourLetterWords

Hello book friends,

I have the PERFECT book for you all today, prepare for laughs and mortification a-plenty!

43517166._SY475_

๐Ÿ…ณ๐Ÿ…ธ๐Ÿ…ฒ๐Ÿ…บ ๐Ÿ†ƒ๐Ÿ…ฐ๐Ÿ†‚๐Ÿ†ƒ๐Ÿ…ด ๐Ÿ…ธ๐Ÿ…ฝ ๐Ÿ…ผ๐Ÿ†ˆ ๐Ÿ…ฟ๐Ÿ…ฐ๐Ÿ…ป๐Ÿ…ผ, ๐Ÿ†‚๐Ÿ…ป๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ…ฐ๐Ÿ†‰๐Ÿ†ˆ ๐Ÿ†‚๐Ÿ…ป๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ…ฐ๐Ÿ†‰๐Ÿ†ˆ ๐Ÿ…ท๐Ÿ…ด

๐Ÿ…ฑ๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ…ฝ๐Ÿ†ƒ ๐Ÿ†ˆ๐Ÿ…พ๐Ÿ†„๐Ÿ† ๐Ÿ…ณ๐Ÿ…พ๐Ÿ…ฝ๐Ÿ…ถ

Ok while you are listening to this book, and definitely listen to get the best effect, please do the following:

Do not hold anything breakable in your hands, you will likely drop it, or throw it in the air when you gasp and put your hand to your mouth, imagine accidentally stabbing yourself in the eye? PUT DOWN THE KNIFE

Have plenty of Kleenex to hand, as you will most certainly cry laughing.

If you have to listen to this one in public, try not to shout Nooooooo too loud and scare the other shoppers in the supermarket.

You will cringe, you will laugh hysterically, you will feel mortified on Heidi’s behalf, but you will absolutely love the bones of that goofy girl, I promise!

Heidi is a Kindergarten teacher in Minnesota, who has unfortunately been laid off, she is sweet and innocent, so when she gets a new job at an audio studio, she has a bit of a shock when she listens to one of the narrators recording a naughty erotic book.

Oh the horror, Heidi’s idea of a romance book is something that is nice, polite, and fade to black, she can’t even say a dirty word without blushing.

Her hot new neighbour gets her thinking that in order to ask him out, she needs to be able to pluck up the courage to do so, and as the studio are throwing out some old recording equipment, Heidi seizes the opportunity to ‘broaden her horizons’ and get those dirty books out on air…the thing is, she can’t even say the words.

After a drunken evening alone, she finally has drunk enough dutch courage, and “Heidi’s Discount Erotica” is born, with not so brilliant results.

I laughed so much at this book, the things that go wrong for her are just incredible, whether that is being scratched to pieces while hiding in a bush from her neighbour Brad, or the ‘Talk to Text’ the “Dick Taste in my Palm” sentence above which didn’t sound anything like that when she narrated it, but who checks their texts before they send them??

As per all of Tara Sivec’s books, her secondary characters are always perfect, and this book was absolutely no exception.
Heidi’s parents were almost as funny as she was.

I’m not sure who’s idea it was for Andi Arndt and Tara Sivec to write a book together, but whoever it was, they should definitely do it again, it was just pure genius.

๐ŸŽง๐ŸŽง

Narration by Andi Arndt was just incredible, and her Minnesota accent for Heidi was apparently spot on, being from the UK it didn’t translate with me, and a few of the “Uff da!” references didn’t make sense, but from what I can gather, it is spot on as she lived there for years.

Enjoy

About The Book

*Amazon UK

Amazon U.S – Included with Audible Escape

Cowritten by USA Today best-selling author Tara Sivec and award-winning narrator Andi Arndt, a hysterically funny, heartfelt romance – created specifically for the audio format!
Nothing good ever comes from drinking a box of wine alone. So when I decided to entertain my drunken self by setting up some hand-me-down podcasting equipment and reading the steamy parts from romance novels, I never thought anyone would actually listen. The fact that I admitted my huge crush on my sexy next door neighbor made the whole thing even more mortifying. But sometimes life surprises you, and that’s how my podcast, Heidi’s Discount Erotica, was born.
Now I, Heidi Larsen, a sweet former kindergarten teacher in Waconia, Minnesota, lead a scandalous double life reading erotic novels to the listening world. And with each episode, I find myself embracing my new alter ego more and more. Now I’m starting to feel more comfortable in my own skin and do things I never would have dreamed of – like kissing my neighbor.
Look out, Waconia, because Heidi’s on the loose! She’s in your ears, in your hearts, and down your pants…wait, that didn’t sound as good as it did in my head. Well, you get the picture, don’tcha know!

Run Away by Harlan Coben @HarlanCoben @PRHAudio @TheStevenWeber #BookReview #RunAway

Hello book friends,

I finally dipped my toe into the spiders web that is Harlan Coben, and now I’m really not sure if I ever want to leave!!

43517166._SY475_

๐Ÿ†‚๐Ÿ†ƒ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ…ฐ๐Ÿ††๐Ÿ…ฑ๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ†ˆ ๐Ÿ…ต๐Ÿ…ธ๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ…ป๐Ÿ…ณ๐Ÿ†‚ ๐Ÿ…ต๐Ÿ…พ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ†…๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ†

This was my first Harlan Coben book, and judging by this one, it certainly won’t be my last.

Simon loves his daughter Paige, they used to be so close, that was until she ran away, she has been missing for a while and he has been doing his best to find her, but as she is classed as an adult, there isn’t much he can do about it but try and do it all himself.

She got involved with an older man who is abusive, and got herself mixed up with drugs, so she is not eager to come back home, even though her parents have done everything to help her get over this, rehab, counselling etc.

While chatting with a friend, he casually mentions that he had see his daughter in Central Park playing the guitar, so Simon jumps on the case and runs over to Strawberry Fields.

Except, when Paige sees her father she runs away, Simon can’t quite believe that it is his daughter, she looks awful, and the drugs she is on have made a once beautiful girl, into a shell of her former self, she is bedraggled, skinny and pale.

She is obviously in a lot of trouble, and the man who is with her is not helping matters, after getting into a scuffle with him and finding himself on the bad end of a viral video, his life starts to come tumbling down.

Finding a few clues along the way Simon manages to slowly fit the pieces together and start hunting for his daughter.

But things are not always as they seem!

๐ŸŽง๐ŸŽง

Narrated by Steven Weber who has narrated a few books I have listened to, including IT by Stephen King, you may also recognise his voice from playing the Principal on the 13 Reasons Why TV series on Netflix.
Either way, he was a perfect match for this high intense thriller.

Enjoy

This also includes her relationship with her teenage children, who she is incredibly protective about, but tends to smother them with love as she is terrified something will happen to them, just like it did with her brother, when she accidentally killed him in a stupid kids game gone wrong.

On the 20th anniversary of her brotherโ€™s death, Rachel starts getting mysterious texts from an unknown number, and objects in her house seem to have been moved around.

And then the murders start happening, the victims being some of the people that were with her that fateful day 20 years ago.

I really enjoyed this twisty psychological thriller, that had lots of twists and turns at every angle, prepare to have this face while speed reading your way through this one ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ต

Dear Wife by Kimberly Belle @KimberlySBelle @HarlequinBooks @parkrowbooks #BookReview #DearWife #KimberlyBelle

Hello my lovely reading buddies,

I’m so excited to share my review for this super awesome, twisty little mind f*@K of a book.

My review is going to be short and sweet, and that’s because I want you to go in as blind as you can with this one, and I don’t want to be the cause of any spoilery shenanigans!

This is going to be a tricky one to review without giving away any spoilers.

I would say, except for obviously reading this review, you should definitely think about going in blind with this one, otherwise it may spoil it for you.

Prepare for some twists and turns and 180 spins with this little cracker of a Thriller, you wonโ€™t know whatโ€™s gonna hit you!!

I was sucked into the storyline and couldnโ€™t put the darn thing down, and the only little snippets of information that Iโ€™m going to give you my little lovelies is thisโ€ฆโ€ฆ

  1. An Abusive Husband
  2. A Woman on the Run
  3. Cat & Mouse

Lock Every Door by Riley Sager @riley_sager @PRHAudio @PenguinUKBooks #BookReview #LockEveryDoor #RileySager

Hello my lovely book buddies!

I am so pleased to bring you my review for this fabulously creepy audiobook.

You won’t look at an empty room the same again ๐Ÿ˜ฒ

51w2Rzr123L._SX329_BO1,204,203,200_

My Thoughts

๐Ÿ…ฒ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ…ฟ๐Ÿ†ˆ–๐Ÿ…ณ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ…ฐ๐Ÿ…ผ๐Ÿ†‚–๐Ÿ†–๐Ÿ†„๐Ÿ†‚

Well I’m making sure I definitely lock every door after reading this one, and windows, and taping down my letterbox ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

A great creepy little thriller that will have you hiding under your duvet.

**We are looking for that special someone to apartment-sit for approx. 12 weeks.
You will get $12000 for thisย โ€ฆโ€ฆ.Yes you did read that right $12000!!

For this job you will be required to apartment sit, in a luxury set of apartments in the famous Bartholomew building, situated overlooking Central Park.

There are a specific set of rules that must be abided by, however, donโ€™t let that dissuade of this fantastic opportunity**

ย Jules sees that advert, and all her dreams come true in an instant, she is currently living on her best friendโ€™s couch, as she lost her job and her boyfriend all in one day.

Everything seems to be against her, and she is unable to get herself sorted without any money behind her, until she sees the advert.

After blagging her way through the interview, she is offered the position, she is ecstatic about this, unlike her friend, who canโ€™t help feeling that if something is too good to be trueโ€ฆ.it probably is!

Rules for the duration of her stay are a bitโ€ฆ.well, weird, but if you are going to be paid 12 grand after 12 weeks, well youโ€™d be prepared to follow some weird rules too, right?

After settling in and looking around, Jules meets another apartment sitter called Ingrid, and they soon become BFFโ€™s, for a whileโ€ฆuntil she goes missing!

I loved this book, it has very creepy vibes about it, and reminded me a little of Rosemaryโ€™s Baby, The Bartholomew is based on The Dakota Apartments in NYC, complete with gargoyles and old-fashioned elevators with cages.

I mean, the building just screams creepy right? Add some gargoyles to the bedroom windows, and it’s Creepy-Dreams-R-Usย ๐Ÿคช

Perfectly narrated by Stephanie Cannon, who was just brilliant, this one is definitely on to add to your TBR

Prepare for Creepy-Town

Because Youโ€™re Mine by Rea Frey @stmartinspress @macmillanaudio #bookreview #becauseyouremine

Happy Tuesday all!

Today I have a review for another book I thoroughly enjoyed! A compelling story with a shocking ending!

My Thoughts

โ€The truth will set you three, but it is the lies that will keep you safe.

Rea Frey has written a compelling tale brimming with secrets and lies, mystery and deceit. I was completely grip from the first page to the shocking end. Lee is a single mother to Mason a charming boy on the autism spectrum. Grace is her BFF newly divorced and has a son the same age as Mason. Noah is Masonโ€™s tutor/therapist, Graceโ€™s friend and Leeโ€™s secret crush. The story bounces between these three characterโ€™s points of view as well as present and past. If you are a fan of the unreliable narrator, you will be thrilled to know you get three in this book. Lee, Grace, and Noah all have secrets to hide, all cover them up with lots of lies, and you never know quite how deep the deception runs.

This book was perfectly paced. The twists were revealed throughout the story, keeping you on high alert throughout. Someone is killed early in the book, leading to even more questions. But I truly thought I had all this figured out. Several twist were revealed and I was thinking Yep Iโ€™ve got this. BUT then things started to go a little sideways and I realized I didnโ€™t have much of anything figured out. So well told! And yes there were a few unbelievable coincidences, but hey this is fiction! And I loved it! And can I just say that ending! Well done!

This book in three emojiโ€™s: ๐Ÿ’‡๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ โ›ฐ ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ

๐ŸŽง๐ŸŽง๐ŸŽง The audio is narrated by Samantha Desz. This is my first time listening to an audio narrated by Samantha and she did a really good job, especially with the different voices and perspectives. Would definitely listen to another book narrated by her.

*** Big thanks to St. Martinโ€™s Press and Macmillan Audio for my copy of this book ***

About the Book

An โ€œinsidious, suspenseful taleโ€ (J.T. Ellison) with a โ€œshocker of an ending you wonโ€™t see comingโ€ (Michele Campbell), Because You’re Mine by Rea Frey, the author who โ€œbrings to mind Jodi Picoultโ€ (Booklist) and โ€œwill appeal to readers of Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanenโ€ (Sally Hepworth) is an audiobook about how the truth will set you free. 
But itโ€™s the lies that keep you safe. 
Single mother Lee has the daily routine down to a science: shower in six minutes. Cut food into perfect squares. Never leave her on-the-spectrum son Mason in someone elseโ€™s care. Sheโ€™ll do anything –
 anything – to keep his carefully constructed world from falling apart. Do anything to keep him safe. 
But when her best friend Grace convinces her she needs a small break from motherhood to recharge her batteries, Lee gives in to a weekend trip. Surely a long weekend away from home wonโ€™t hurt? Noah, Masonโ€™s handsome, bright, charismatic tutor – the first man in ages Leeโ€™s even noticed – is more than happy to stay with him. 
Forty-eight hours later, someone is dead. 
But not all is as it seems. Noah may be more than who he claims to be. Grace has a secret – one that will destroy Lee. Lee has secrets of her own that she will do anything to keep hidden. As the dominoes begin to fall and the past comes to light, perhaps it’s no mystery someone is gone after all….
Because You’re Mine is a breathtaking audiobook of domestic drama and suspense. 
Prepare to stay up all night.
