Sorry I did...not that I won't read another Skip Langdon
novel...I only gave this three stars for the main character,
because she's so real and so loveable.
But the editing of this book was a slap-dash job; I got very impatient with the inappropriate character responses: things slowed up when they should have been fast; and vice versa. I found myself doing something I hate to do with a book...skipping ahead just to get it over with.
I'll try Axeman's Jazz next, and if that doesn't work, I'll chalk
it up to someone who wrote one great novel and then, because it was popular, was forced to keep producing work that was a shadow of its original self.

I love Julie Smith books because of the great New Orleans feeling they give. The Skip Langdon books are my favorite.Published on Jan. 24 2004 by K. Turner
