Crimson Lake

A Novel
Crimson Lake: Book #1
By Candice Fox
Narrated by Euan Morton /  12 hours 9 minutes

Crimson Lake

“I just finished listening to Crimson Lake. Set in Northern Australia, I appreciated that narrator Euan Mortan's Australian accent helped me to feel immersed in the story. Protagonists Ted and Amanda are both beautifully flawed narrators who kept me guessing as to their reliability. It is hard for an author to create one compelling mystery, and in Crimson Lake, Candice Fox weaves in three fascinating, tricky mysteries into one cohesive, immersive story. Adventures in the jungle, a gaggle of foster geese, and a missing, brilliant troubled author keep the plot moving and absorbing. The audiobook also includes an interview with Ms. Fox that gives great insight into the creation of Ted and Amanda, and promises that Crimson Lake is not the last we will hear from them. I am a longtime fan of mysteries, and thoroughly enjoyed this one.”

The Lost Girls of Paris

A Novel
By Pam Jenoff
Narrated by Elizabeth Knowelden, Henrietta Meire & Candace Thaxton /  11 hours 41 minutes

The Lost Girls of Paris

“Pam Jenoff specializes in finding a piece of history that has not been fully explored and that often leaves one thinking truth is stranger than fiction. In The Lost Girls of Paris, she returns to WWII but this time her protagonists are a group of British women recruited to blend into the French countryside and sabotage the Nazi network in preparation for D-Day. The story, told from the perspective of three women, ties up a whodunit in a satisfying knot with a little romance, but it’s really a lot more about women finding out who they are and what role they can play in making a difference in the world.”

Hollow Kingdom

By Kira Jane Buxton
Narrated by Robert Petkoff /  10 hours 10 minutes

Hollow Kingdom

“We need more heroes like S.T. — a foul-mouthed, idealistic, moral crow with unquenchable courage — and his sidekick, a befuddled bloodhound. Kira Jane Buxton speaks crow, gull, dog, housecat, and owl with such fluency and poetry that I could not put this book down. Her vision of the zombie apocalypse is a strange and wonderful journey I want to take again and again. I really can’t think of another current novel that conveys such humor, joy, sorrow, and hope so beautifully. Thank you for restoring my faith that this world may live on.”
