On Friday I reviewed Only For My Daughter for Bookouture.

And for Self-Published Saturday, when I review only self-published and indie books, I reviewed Tales of the Romanov Empire and Cathedral of Silver

I’m a huge football fan (American football), and I spent Thursday, Friday, and Saturday glued to the tv watching the draft. My team is the Cincinnati Bengals, and has been for 40 years.

My favorite part of the draft is seeing these young men with their families and watching their dreams come true.

This is one of the most heartwarming videos from the night. He says “Hey Mama! We’re Going To Cincinnati!”

The Nothing Man

I enjoy a good audiobook. I spend a lot of time in the car for work, and audiobooks help pass the time. I was happy when Netgalley started providing advance copies of audiobooks for review. Below is my review of The Nothing Man, a spellbinding tale with dual narrators.

****************************************************************************************

The Nothing Man is the story of Eve Black, whose family was attacked and murdered one night by a man who will go on to be known as The Nothing Man, a rapist and killer. Twenty years later, Eve writes a book about this killer, 

I reviewed the audiobook version. This audiobook has two narrators. Alana Kerr-Collins is the voice of Eve and John Keating is the voice of The Nothing Man. Both do a fantastic job. Kerr-Collins has a suspenseful note to her voice that keeps you on the edge of your seat and Keating’s eerie Nothing Man is spellbinding. 

Catherine Ryan Howard has written a thriller that is full of suspense and will keep you guessing. The ending is surprising and well thought out.

Fans of crime novels and novels about serial killers will be enthralled by this one.

I received a free copy of this audiobook from Blackstone Publishing via Netgalley My review is voluntary.
