Okay I’m back and so is Josie Quinn. And frankly, I’m sure at this point Josie Quinn wouldn’t like me either.
Still, she remains a bad ass detective determined to doing the right thing like saving people, helping them get justice and ending corruption in her town. Is she still a catty woman, unable to let go of the past and someone that drinks way too much? Yes. Do I still dislike that about her? You bet.
I dislike Josie Quinn. Not the story, but her. And let’s discuss why I dislike her.
The plot and twists and turns, while sometimes unbelievable and most-likely actually impossible (legally speaking anyway) in reality, were enjoyable. You know what isn’t enjoyable? Josie Quinn herself.
Here’s the thing with fictionalized podcasts. They can be hard to find. For example, I use Google Play to listen to most of my favorite podcasts, but the platform doesn’t have any sort genre listing for fictional stories. This makes it difficult to find fictional stories at large, let alone stories in a specific genre.
Once again, I’m here with podcasts that tell fictional stories that are perfect for audiobook lovers. Everything I’ve recommended below is something I’ve listened to completion or am fully caught up with all released episodes. If you’re interested in more recommendations you can visit the firstand second posts in this series!
Book two in this series (I’m wondering if we’ll get more books or not) and really not much is different from the first book except the mystery isn’t solely around Claire anymore. And, while it is part of the series, you don’t need to read Finding Claire Fletcher to read Losing Leah Holloway (although I strongly suggest that you do).

Where do I even begin with this book?
If you’re going to pick this book up, buckle up because from page one this book takes off and it doesn’t stop until the last page. Even then the momentum carries through to book number two in the series but, for the sake of talking about book number one, let’s start and end there.

Everything I recommend is something I’ve listened to either to completion or am fully caught up with newly released episodes.

I discovered podcasts before audiobooks. I know that might sound funny to some people, but it’s true. Everyone around me is off listening to the audiobook version of the latest hot new book release, and I’m standing in my kitchen ignoring my burning dinner staring at my Google Home as I listen to a fictionalized podcast.
