Awesome episode with Kristin Hannah

Episode 76 with Kristin Hannah was fabulous. I couldn’t put The Four Winds down. This episode was a great way to dig in a little deeper. I loved hearing more about the author’s writing process and Laura asked really thoughtful questions. I highly recommend this podcast to anyone bookish!

Mind Opener

Episode 67 might’ve just been my gateway to the mystery genre, specifically psychological thrillers like the highlighted novel, The First Lie. Laura led a gracious conversation with the author, Hank Phillippi Ryan, that really makes one feel like they’re at a coffee shop or library lounge right there with them.
I’m so excited to get the book!

Warm, interesting, real

When I listen to Laura’s interviews I feel like I’m in a room in a conversation with friends. I always learn something new, at the same time it’s all so down to earth. Highly recommend!
