The Book Junkie Reads . . . Review of . . . A BEAUTIFUL END (Broken Bow, #1) . . . There is a first for everything. Rarely am I wrong about the person behind the menace of the story. But I have to say that I was not totally right either. I had my first and second suspects in place within the first six chapters. By the end of the story, I was happy that I had at least guest but he was not my primary. Now, that left me with more of a mystery as to how my first suspect will pop up in future installments of this series.
I did enjoy this one. It opened with startling surprise and a bit of trauma. London and Seb are well acquainted. They have a past that connects them as well as their present as godparents to London's niece. We are introduced to a host of characters that makes small town life interesting and comforting at the same time.
I did enjoy the ebb and flow of Jenn Lee. I would have liked a bit more variation at some points when it was hard to tell if the speaker was male or female. Those were few, but still made and impact. Those were the times that I had to backtrack a bit to rehear the conversation and the tone of it. Overall, I would say my introduction to Ashley A. Quinn was a success. Thanks to her writing and Jenn Lee bringing it to life for my listening enjoyment.
I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Audiobook Empire. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
Will a threat to London’s life lead her to love?
London Scott’s routine, boring life gets a jolt when her niece discovers a woman’s body while out hiking with her boyfriend. It’s just her luck, though, that it’s Sebastian Archer who investigates the murder. Having known the man since childhood, she’s always been the annoying tagalong. Even though she finds him drop-dead sexy, that’s a ship that can never sail now that she’s guardian to her niece and his goddaughter.
Two years ago, Seb moved home to take the position as local sheriff, ready for a slower pace and to be closer to his family. That included his best friend’s sister, London. The beautiful innkeeper had held his heart since they were young, but the timing never felt right to start something. When a serial killer murders a woman in his jurisdiction who bears a striking resemblance to London, Seb realizes he could lose her before they ever get a chance.

When not writing, you can usually find me with my nose stuck in a book or watching some terrible disaster movie on SyFy. I also love baseball, crafting, and cooking. I live in Ohio with my husband, two kids, three cats, and one very wild shepherd mix. Life is busy and I wouldn't have it any other way.
After 20+ years as professional NYC actor, I stumbled into some documentary voiceover work. From that moment on, I knew the trajectory of my career had been changed forever. I adore narrating and doing VO, and every job feels like a gift.
