What a wonderfully written book, with converging story lines that keeps the action moving. Getting inside the head of the various characters gives insight into their actions and decision-making. A fine example of how we all do the best with what we've got, and a lot of what we've got depends on what we start off with in life. Believable and sympathetic characters, and a storyline that keeps moving, all keep the reader cheering for the characters and hoping for the best for them, while at the same time fearing the worst.

An interesting short story with a not-very-surprising ending. Good writing, but a bit disappointing in the story line.

A delightful short detective mystery. It left me wishing it was novel-length. Sympathetic characters, crisp writing. All in all, a good read.

What a fun read. What's not to like about a good ole boy from Texas with an old pickup truck and a beagle named Precious, a decaying pre-civil war mansion and a mother who runs a quasi-secret illegal floating poker game for the gals in town? Oh yeah, and a body in his front yard. Now I got to get me the other title, Bubba and the Twelve Deadly Days of Christmas.

Great story, great writing. The only nagging annoyance was the constant flamboyant and unnecessary use of quotation marks throughout the book. One suspects that either he had no editor, or that his editor could not dissuade him from this annoying use, and I found that it distracted me from fully enjoying an otherwise excellent book.
