"Milagro Lane" is a very lightweight book with a half-hearted mystery storyline. Jay Brandon is a pretty good writer, but this book just didn't do it for me.

I'd read a review that said that this book was San Antonio's equivalent to San Francisco's 'Tales of the City' so this book flew to the top of my must read list. While it isn't as good as 'Tales of the City' it is a really fun read in its own right. The writing is breezy the plot is entertaining.
