New on the iPod

I received two audios from the library this week, after seeing some compelling reviews recently.  Let me know if you have read or listened to them!  Here is what I added:

Always Watching by Chevy Stevens (recommended by Caite at A Lovely Shore Breeze)

Synopsis:  Dr. Nadine Lavoie, briefly featured in Stevens' first two books ("Never Knowing" and "Still Missing"), takes center stage as she is forced to confront her traumatic childhood while treating a woman who attempted suicide.  Then the unthinkable happens, and Nadine realizes that danger is closer to home than she ever imagined.

Narrator:  Joyce Bean
Listening length:  12 hours and 16 minutes


Tell the Wolves I'm Home by Carol Rifka Brunt (recommended by Melissa at Avid Reader's Musings)

Synopsis:  1987.  Only one person has ever truly understood 14 year-old June Elbus:  Her uncle the renowned painter Finn Weiss. So when he dies far too young of a mysterious illness, June's world is turned upside down.  But Finn's death brings a surprise acquaintance into June's life, someone who will help her to heal - and to question what she thinks she knows about Finn, her family, and her own heart.  As June and this new stranger begin to spend some time together, June realizes she is not the only one who misses Finn, and if she can bring herself to trust this unexpected friend, he might just be the one she needs the most.  An emotionally-charged coming-of-age novel.

Narrator:  Amy Rubinate
Listening length:  12 hours

I was never tempted to read Chevy Stevens again after the first one. Too scary/violent-against-women kind of thing. But I know she is good with the suspense element. And Caite knows her crime novels!

I've never read either one but I do want to read a Chevy Stevens book.

I hope you have a wonderful trip!

I just wanted to let you know that I'm listening to Rod Stewart's autobiography based on your review. I'm loving it!

I'm interested to hear what you think of Tell the Wolves I'm Home. I have that in my TBR and have heard wonderful things.

Enjoy your audiobooks!
