Started The Bachelor Girl by Kim van Alkemade before the end of 2018 but am still listening to it. Not sure what to think of it yet so I'll try to report back when I'm finished.

I finished Tana French's The Witch Elm, and enjoyed it, and thought Paul Nugent's narration was especially good. Now I'm listening to Ken Follett's A Column of Fire, the third of the Kingbridge novels. So many characters to track!

The Bachelor Girl just never quite worked for me. The book has alternating chapters narrated by a young woman and a young man. The woman is an actress/theatre manager who is given some help with medical expenses and work by the owner of the New York Yankees. The man is the owner's personal secretary so the two are thrown together and develop a friendship. The woman thinks it is more but the man is gay (he calls himself a pansy) and the woman never catches on. The time period is the early part of the twentieth century but she just seemed so incredibly naive about everything that I thought she was unbelievable.

I am now listening to two audiobooks. On my mp3 player I have Goodnight from London by Jennifer Robson (set during World War II) and in the CD player I am listening to I Liked My Life by Abby Fabiaschi. More about these later.

The first audiobook I finished this year was A Column of Fire, the third of the Kingbridge books, by Ken Follett. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Well, I didn't enjoy the descriptions of torture, human and animal. Narration by John Lee is excellent.

Now I've started Boy Erased by Garrad Conley. So far, just okay.

Enjoying this OverDrive/Kindle eBook ~

Born Wild by Julie Ann Walker

(Black Knights Inc. series/ex-SEALs/off-the-radar spec-ops team/hot sex suspense/Alexa can read this to me)

Just finished Goodnight from London by Jennifer Robson, narrated by Saskia Maarleveld. This is set during World War II and concerns a young American woman reporting on the war's effects on England while she undergoes the Blitz herself. Good period detail and the romance is not silly or unbelievable. Jennifer Robson wrote two other books set during World War I Somewhere in France and just after After the War is Over and those are very good. I also recently listened to Moonlight over Paris which I did not like as much but it may appeal to others.
