"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. Have to admit that, being from San Antonio, it was entertaining to read about the city's history and politics and to try to figure out the real people behind the fictitious names.

Intriguing and suspenseful

Five stars for the locality and suspense feeling within the first few pages. It gave a familiarity feeling with locations and detailed descriptions of various places. The cast was energetic and lively. I couldn't put it down, hardly. I wanted to know every next chapter. It has an amazing storyline and beautiful perspective of San Antonio. Loved it!

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. Jay Brandon captures the essence of San Antonio in a fun and witty way.

I loved this book. I saw Brandon at the Texas book festival, heard him talk and picked up the book. You get a real sense of the setting, San Antonio. Even without that the story and character would be great.
