Summer is here with a vengeance, and that puts everyone in a vacation or lazy weekend frame of mind. The higher the thermometer climbs, the more readily I turn to light, fun listening. For me, nothing’s better than a good cozy mystery to take my mind off the heat or to keep me company when traveling, both in reality and from my armchair.
Today’s audiobook recommendations take you around the world and introduce you a diverse group of women, all of whom have a knack for getting involved in murder or other criminal investigations.

AudioFile is delighted to feature Maggie Stiefvater’s ALL THE CROOKED SAINTS as part of our free summer audiobook program SYNC Audiobooks for Teens. In 1962, a disc jockey fleeing fame and a teenage hitchhiker with a hole in his heart arrive in Bicho Raro, a tiny desert town where a family of Mexican-American saints offers miracles to those who need them. Narrator Thom Rivera shares what he loves about the world that Stiefvater created.
“In Bicho Raro, miracles are never what you’d expect.”—Narrator Thom Rivera
