The Space Invader: A Frannie Shoemaker Campground Mystery, Book 7 (ADULT AUDIO)

 Frannie and the  gang are  back again and they are exploring New Mexico, the Roswell area where the alien worshipers live.  Between a man on the run after escaping from prison and the alien cults things get very hairy for Frannie and the gang.

This is another fine mess the gang has landed in (see what I did there). There camping trip is full of action and suspense.  But this is a case they need to solve for themselves as it is some of their own that are missing this time.  If  you are a fan of this series too this book is not to be missed.  If you are listening to this series as I am Michelle Babb is back with her wonderful narration, that will transport you there to help the gang.

The Misfit Soldier (ADULT)

 Gas (Gastovsky) isn't you typical Sergent he joined up  to run away from trouble.  Gas always has a con or side-hustle going on somewhere on the base.  But he is all business when it comes to his squad, and he refuses to leave one of his squad behind.  That is where we find him at the point the story starts, trying to sneak onto a ship going down to where the fighting is to try and get his team member back all by himself, but then things change a lot when he is caught.

This is a non stop action book with more twists and turns than a roller coaster.  The author has caught the military team bonding as well as any other author has if not better.  I really liked this book and hope to see more of Gas and the team because I refuse to believe this is the end of their story.

Finlay Donovan Knocks 'Em Dead (ADULT)

 Finlay and Vero are back but as of the moment the only dead thing they need to rid themselves of is a goldfish.  But that won't last long if a online chat room person gets her way as she wants Finlay's ex dead. So with the holidays fast approaching can Finlay keep Steven alive for her kids, get the chat room groupie to take back the hit, get ready for the holidays with the kids, sort out her love life, and push out a new book?  

I love this book (and the first) it is so funny how Finlay keeps get these issues thrown in her lap and she can do nothing but deal with them.  If it wasn't so funny it'd be tragic, and yet it seems she always comes out on top.  The characters are so good and the story plot even better.  Give this series a chance and I bet (wink wink) it'll have you laughing too.

Forbidden City (3) (City Spies) (MG)

 The mean guys at Umbra have their sight set on a North Korean nuclear physicist and will do anything to get him.  But hopefully the City Spy can get to him before Umbra and get him and his champion chess playing son to safety.  This mission hinges on being good enough to compete in champion level chess, acting like a world class reporter (who gets to hang out with a boy band) and a lot of other talents and one wrong move can spoil the case.  The mission is hot.  We are a go!

I love this series it is not totally unrealistic that this could possibly happen and it it always cool to picture yourself as part of a team like this.  This book is great for all and even reluctant readers, as I think everyone can relate to one character or another.  This is a great book and a wonderful series I can't wait to see what the team gets into next.
