I'm A Book Shark

Freelance copyeditor to all amazing self-published and independent authors. Check out my editing page for more information. <3 Mickey is the blogger behind I’m A Book Shark. She really wishes there was a better explanation for why she’s a book shark. A new twitter name was needed, and it had to be about her favorite hobby: reading! For whatever reason, sharks also came to mind, and a book shark was born. Besides reading, Mickey is a natural reddish-headed, late-twenties, tattooed, entertainment-of-all-kinds lover, wife of husband, mother of reptiles (and a cat and two puppies, all spoiled), student, employee, boss, and (mostly) raw vegan. Oh yeah, and she likes to blog. www.imabookshark.com

Love in a Nutshell - Janet Evanovich, Lorelei King, Dorien Kelly See full review here!

I received this audio book for review from Macmillan Audio. Here is my honest review:

I adore Janet Evanovich's novels. I thoroughly enjoy Lorelei King's performances in audio books, especially Evanovich's books. But this book is not a typical Janet Evanovich novel. I am unfamiliar with Dorien Kelly, but this novel lacks the hilarity of a normal Evanovich book. Yes, it's funny sometimes, and I'm not saying that it's serious in the least. It just isn't constantly laugh-out-loud like her other stories.

It's still very enjoyable though. The essence of the story is true Evanovich. There is scandal, romance, large families, and animals. Matt and Kate have that struggle of "should we or shouldn't we" while trying to make it through their own individual problems in life and solve a mystery at the same time. It's a light, easy read, and I certainly liked listening to it.

Lorelei King is just the bomb. I can never say enough good things about her as a narrator. Her different voices are always easy to listen to and tell apart. She has such great range, and her voice is just lovely to listen to. If you've never heard a Lorelei/Janet partnership, this is a good start!
