Kate Says: "Reading Is Fun!"

Like most of you I'm an avid reader. I'm hoping to re-connect with old friends, make new friends, and of course spread the love of reading and writing around to everyone!

Louisiana Hotshot: A Humorous New Orleans Murder Mystery By: Julie Smith

— feeling star
Louisiana Hotshot  - Julie Smith

Let me be honest here, I don't read a lot of mysteries, but I'm really glad I gave this one a try.


Talba Wallis is my kind of girl! She's super smart, good at computers, just got her PI license, and just landed herself a pretty decent job working for Eddie Valantino (an old school, renowned PI). Talba is also a Baroness Poet.


I liked how the mystery unfolded, but what I really enjoyed was how the story took on New Orleans, and it became a character in the story itself. It just oozed of dialect, food, music, spirituality, fashion, and poetry. Now, I really can't wait to go on this trip and experience it first hand!


Many thanks to RedThaws for the recommendation. I will continue to read the rest of the series for sure.
