What do you think you’ll read next?

What are you currently reading?

The Hundred-Foot JourneyThe Hundred-Foot Journey by Richard C. Morais. Another book was chosen based on a movie I’ve previously watched. This isn’t a large tome, only 242 pages, but I’ve been reading it for a week and haven’t finished it. I like it. It’s beautifully written…just slow.

 

 

 

What did you recently finish reading?

Louisiana Hotshot by Julie Smith, Talba Wallis book 1. I like it. There was more cursing in it than I expected. Not really a cozy more of a traditional mystery…maybe. Set in New Orleans.  <sigh> I love New Orleans. I don’t know if I liked enough to read the next book but I will give the author another try. The story was very well written.

Louisiana Hotshot (Talba Wallis, #1)WANTED: HOTSHOT P.I. WITH NEAR SUPER-HUMAN SKILLS.

Confirmed grump Eddie Valentino placed the ad. Hotshot twenty-something Talba Wallis knew exactly how to answer it.

And thus was born the dynamic duo of New Orleans private detectives, one cynical, sixty-five-year-old Luddite white dude with street smarts, and one young, bright-eyed, Twenty-First century African-American female poet, performance artist, mistress of disguise, and computer jock extraordinaire. Think Queen Latifah and Danny DeVito.

In Louisiana Hotshot, their job is to hunt down a sociopath and pedophile who’s molested the fourteen-year-old daughter of their client, hangs out on the ragged edges of the rap and recording industries, and has more powerful allies than a Cabinet member.


But both detectives have unfinished business from the past—in Eddie’s case, something he deeply regrets; in Talba’s, a personal mystery, one so frightening no one will help her investigate. But she knows she won’t sleep till she solves it—and the truth will change her forever.

What do you think you’ll read next?

I’ve got several library books I need to read. I’ve already kept them longer than I’m supposed to.

Snakeskin Shamisen (Mas Arai, #3)Snakeskin Shamisen by Naomi Hirahara looks interesting. This is book 3 in the Mas Arai series. I haven’t read the first two in the series. I hope that’s ok.

What are you reading?
