Burning Angel (Dave Robicheaux Mysteries) by James Lee Burke

all james lee burke stores are excellent whether it be billy bob holland or dave robicheau - this is an excellent author who knoes how to write and holds the readers attention - for wanting to read more of his books. i am currently reading one of the billy bob holland series and these books are hard to put down. you feel like you really know the character. i admire the author who lives in missoula, montana, now and am mad that my daughter - adult - didntt meet him or read his books before she moved to belgrade out of bozeman. this man can WRITE.

i am almost finished reading this book - within 20 pages and this book holds the readers attention through out the entire book. it is about a lady that gave birth to a baby but had the child raised by her sister when she left town to travel the worlds as a camera person for 15 years. when she returns to texas things move along and get exciting in dealing with the 15 year old daughter who does not know about her parentage and our main girl also learns she has a visual problem. she has now met a man who is interested in her but trying to distance herself, so it is interesting to see the way miss wiggs has handled the story line which is excellent and totally holds the readers attention. i would recommend this book to both men and women.

Nine Lives: Mystery, Magic, Death, and Life in New Orleans by Dan Baum
Nine Lives: Mystery, Magic, Death, and Life in New Orleans

i have read about the first 42 pages and feel drawn in from the start even though the author said it would take 50 pages to understand what was going on. some of time frame is around hurricane betsy and is in the 9th and 7th wards. the author has done a gread job of describing the people, events and houses and area. the reason i know some of this is because my husband is from new orleans and lived in the 9th ward and said that the details are all correct - so kudos to the author. this is a definite recommend read - the only problem i have is that it would be better on an eboook where i can adjust the print. the print in this book is hard for me as an older lady to read and so i use a magnifying glass to read it but it is great.
