A Good Audiobook Speaks Volumes Holiday Blog Tour & Giveaway!

November 6, 2018 Misc. 6

Welcome to my stop on the Good Audiobook Speaks Volumes Holiday Blog Tour where I get to talk about audiobooks!!!

Audiobooks are fast becoming one of my favorite ways to read because I can listen while cooking, gardening, etc. So today I am going to talk about audiobooks I love and that I think would make good gifts for the holiday season.

So I am a huge mystery/crime fan so I am going to be giving out suggestions for those in your family who are mystery buffs as well.


Crime on the Fens – It’s a British Crime series and one of my favorites! It’s about DI Nikki Galena and she is a hardened detective who has seen a lot of bad things and had one of those things happen to her own daughter. She is tough and not afraid to plunge headlong into danger. She has a great partner DS Joseph Easter who is very loyal and has a few of his own demons to fight at times. It’s just a great series and I really enjoy it. The narrator Henrietta Meire does an awesome job with the series. There are currently nine books in this series.

Guidebook to Murder – This is the series that got me into audiobooks. It was my first cozy mystery series and is still my favorite series. It’s about Jill who lives in South Cove and owns a bookstore cafe called Coffee, Books and More. She inherits a house from a nice old lady that she was friendly with and ends up figuring out that she was  murdered, bumps heads with the local detective and the rest is history, or a great cozy series…lol. The narrator Susan Boyce does a wonderful job. There are nine books in this series but soon to be ten and I can’t wait!

If you like your mysteries with a little bit of a paranormal slant to them, here are a couple of my favorite series!


Storm Front – The Dresden Files is one of my absolute favorite series and so much fun! It’s about Harry Dresden the only Wizard in the Chicago phonebook and if you’re ever in trouble he is the man you want. Thing is he is always in a lot of trouble himself and can get into some scary situations. I am currently on book ten out of what looks like soon to be seventeen and yes that is a lot but they are such easy listens they fly by. One of the reasons is the narrator James Marster (Spike from Buffy, the Vampire Slayer) and I could just listen to his voice all day!

First Grave on the Right – First book in the Charley Davidson series.  Charley Davidson is a part-time private investigator and full-time grim reaper. She sees dead people and helps them cross over and sometimes she has to find out who killed them first so they can cross over. It’s a lot of fun and I am only a few into this series of thirteen, but I wanted to mention it because I am loving it so far and it’s a lot of people’s favorite. A big part of that is the narrator Lorelei King which is one of my favorite narrators!

So there you have it some great gift ideas for those mystery/crime lovers in your family! Hope you all have a great holiday season!

    There are so many great series out there that I love, including the Charley Davidson series you mentioned. One of my favorites is Ilona Andrews’ Kate Daniels series.

    My newest favorite audiobook is Sadie by Courtney Summers. It reminds me of the S-Town podcast. There are several great narrators but Sadie’s narrator gives a remarkable performance.
