Anna Dressed in Blood By Kendare Blake Read by August Ross

Cas Lowood has inherited an unusual vocation: He kills the dead.  When he arrives in a new town, Cas doesn’t expect anything outside of the ordinary: track, hunt, kill. What he finds instead is a girl entangled in curses and rage, a ghost like he’s never faced before . . .

“It’s the old boy meets girl story, if the boy is a wry, self-destructive ghost-hunter bent on avenging his father and the girl is a homicidal ghost trapped in a house full of everyone she’s ever murdered. Needless to say, Cas and Anna are my new favorite twosome. When I got to the last page, I flipped back to the first.”—Holly Black, New York Times bestselling author of Red Glove

The Woman in White By Wilkie Collins Read by Ian Holm

One night on the road to London, Walter Hartright meets a mysterious woman dressed all in white and answers her pleas for help. Wilkie Collins’s masterpiece of terrible secrets, concealed identities, abductions, fraud, cruel aristocrats, and sinister foreigners . . .

Tantor Audio has a free audio download paired with PDF eBook:


Summer By Edith Wharton Narrated by Lorna Raver

The original Fifty Shades of Gray? You decide! One of America’s first novels to deal frankly with a young woman’s sexual awakening, Summer shocked readers with its forthright exploration of desire and sexuality when it was first published in 1917. Set in the Berkshire Mountains of Western Massachusetts, it tells the story of Charity Royall, a young New England woman of humble origins who meets and falls in love with the worldly Lucius Harney, an architect from the city. 

Audible has this freebie from Bolinda:

The Two | [Will Carver]

The Two By Will Carver Narrated by Richard Aspel & Nicki Paull

They kill without mercy. Disappear without trace. They are The Two. And now the stakes are raised once more for Detective January David. 5 lie dead, brutally murdered – the first taken on the night of Halloween and as autumn bleeds into winter more ritualistic murders are discovered. January must battle his demons, for in his mind lies the clue to stopping a ruthless murderer. But his worst nightmares have literally come true when he discovers there’s not one, but two twisted killers on the loose.
