    1. Fat hate, including "well obviously they're fat because of x", in the first five pages. Repeatedly. And trying to make the fat person sound ignorant. And "what is a fat person doing in THIS kind of job?" Etc. and so on. NOPE.


    2. I've found a new favorite woman's mystery author! A smart, sassy female detective AND a good story! I can't wait until the next one!


    3. This is the second book in a series. I didn't read the first. It seemed to me like this was a beginning- of- a- series book. The story is set in modern New Orleans and our narrator is Talba Wallis, new private detective. She is learning the ropes and makes lots of mistakes. I like her character and would read another installment.


    4. I wasn't going to write a review for this book because I didn't finish it. Quite frankly, it was a struggle to make it halfway through Chapter 4. The story line was okay, but I couldn't get past the racial innuendos. Every single character was identified as to whether they were black or white. Why? What difference does that make? I don't care if the character is black, white, purple or green! When the main character said that she chose her name because she wanted to steal something from a white [...]


    5. Being British it’s sometimes difficult to get into the detail of American books – the language and cultural differences, never mind details of places. However, the writing in this book brings out the depth and complexity of the main character Talba Wallis even to us English. From TV we've a reasonable understanding of the workings of the US police system and Private Investigators, sufficient to know Talba, as one half of a detective duo, is pretty hot to use the vernacular. As with any ficti [...]



    6. I really like Talba and Eddie’s relationship. He’s an old, tough white investigator who has seen it all, and she’s a young, intelligent black woman who becomes his assistant PI. They have a special bond, and while she sometimes drives him crazy, he also feels very protective and fatherly towards her. In this book, one of Talba’s friends dies under mysterious circumstances, and the more they find out, the deeper the mystery seems to go. Set in and around New Orleans, the author uses the s [...]


    7. I honestly couldn’t get into this. I thought I would love it and it would be the beginning of another favorite series for me. The plot sounded good, and it was a female PI, but 40% in and I just can’t, I can’t keep going! There is nothing in this book to draw me in or make me want to keep reading. It isn’t even an easy read for a plane or something. It takes work to read this because it is so dry and boring.


    8. Not bad at all! I enjoyed this book a little more than the first one in the series. It seemed a little more thought went into this one. Looking forward to the next one!But, while I have enjoyed the stories in both books, the so called poetry is terrible. Just my opinion, and I've never been a fan of poetry anyway butt a fan of Talba's poems.


    9. Julie Smith and TalbaI have read more than a few of Me. Smith's books, and have enjoyed each and every one. I especially like Skip, but Talba has a great deal of charm. If you like a mystery with a strong narrative thread, interesting characters, and a believable plot, get acquainted with Ms. SMith's books.


    10. Well written, entertaining, serious MysteryThis is the first Julie Smith book that I've read. It was very well written and the mystery itself was for more serious and life-threatening for the characters than any other mystery that I've read that was called Cozy mystery. Great characters solid plot and very well written.


    11. Talba rocksI like the what she thinks. She's smart and sassy. Great combo . It's very interesting to see behind the eyes of the main characters. Makes them more real. I like the fact that the end of the stories aren't always neat and pat but there is some resolution. Not all bad people get what they deserve but maybe, down the line, they do. Who knows?


    12. Excellent"To everyone there is a season, a time to live and a time to die." Woven throughout this story is this one sentence. A well written story weaving past with present. How a crime in the past affected so many in the present. And how racism in the past still unfortunately resides in the presence.


    13. 3.5* I'm not quite sure about the 'humorous' category, but it was a interesting mystery written with a light touch about a serious issue and was a good read. I would read other books in the series, too.


    14. Very southern.Tales is beautiful, witty, fairly smart, and determined. She is deep south with the language to fit. Interesting reading for outsiders. A little reverse racist but funny. Loved this book and it's bridge between cultures.


    15. This second book in the series was hard to get into. I started reading and stopped many times before I could read more than just a few pages at a time. When I finally got into the story, I had a hard time putting it down.


    16. Great page turner!I just loved this book. It will keep you guessing until the end when all is revealed. The characters come to life you can see them and hear them speaking with their hometown accents. I would highly recommend this book.


    17. Love this readThe telling of this story kept me captivated. A very enjoyable read. I do believe I have found another great author and look forward to reading more about Ms Wallis and Skip Langdon as well.


    18. I am hooked.This author and her characters have me quite involved in their activities. My interest has been piqued and I will continue to follow this author. The story lines move right along and contain enough light spots to keep a pleasant pace.


    19. Hang on to your seat, wild ride aheadFollow Talba on another wild ride through Louisiana as she investigates the death of her friend.Fast action, suspense and some laughter thrown in.


    20. Hooked meEnjoyed the story, the characters were clear and lively, looking foreword to the next book in the series. A fun read that made me want more. Good style of writing, very personable.


    21. Good bookYou people should just read this book yourselves and write your own review on this novel yourself and I really enjoyed reading this book very much so . Shelley MA



    22. Good storyI enjoyed this mystery it made me second guess myself on who I thought had done the crimes. It made you think


    23. BrilliantLoved every minute of this book. Looking forward to reading more. Had me on the edge of my seat at some points.



    24. very good, but with a cast of thousands and intricate! It was a marathon race from the first page to the last! Five stars.


    25. Excellent readI liked the honesty about ongoing race relations in the south. The interactions between generations in the family also seemed very believable.


    26. Excellent ReadGreat characters and plot. Really liked the "Baroness" and her boss Eddie. Interesting though numerous other characters. Looking forward to next book.


    27. Not the best!Not the best book on the marketwasn't even that funny. I really have no desire to continue with the series. Keep trying lady
