Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

Daughters of Bad Men by Laura Oles

I was unsure of what to expect when asked to review this book.   I was pleasantly surprised to discover a new author that I thoroughly enjoyed.   The story was character centric with plot secondary to character development.   Two friends have an investigation business that is not flourishing due to their soft hearts and frequent pro bono work.   A family crisis arises that forces them to use all of their talent and connections to survive. 

The author does a very good work up of the main protagonists and their motivation.  She provides the reasons for their character and behavior.  I really like an author that provides the underpinnings of the story.

The setting is a shore town in southern Texas.   This an area that I am completely unfamiliar with but the similarities to Jersey shore towns were very strong.  

Cookie and Jamie were very likeable characters with easily seen flaws that made them more real. 

I enjoyed the book and recommend it.


This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
