I am loving this series!

Boyack has excelled at bringing these characters to life. They're flawed but fabulous, real yet corny, smart and silly, and I miss them already. I read The Ballard of Mrs. Molony out of order, but it didn't matter. These books

I've become a huge Tony Hillerman fan. His stories are top-notch and always fun to read. That said, I didn't enjoy this book as much as the others because some of the characters (like Leaphorn, whom I adore), didn't jump off the page like they do in ...more

“Life is not what we live; it is what we imagine we are living.”
Pascal Mercier, Night Train to Lisbon

“A feeling is no longer the same when it comes the second time. It dies through the awareness of its return. We become tired and weary of our feelings when they come too often and last too long.”
Pascal Mercier, Night Train to Lisbon

“Be courageous and try to write in a way that scares you a little.”
Holley Gerth

“Most of us are one of two things: blind or chicken-shit. We wouldn't know a crossroads in our lives if it had a set of stoplights and a Denny's.”
Larry Brooks, Bait and Switch

“If you’ve ever wondered why some writers who, in your humble opinion, don’t write as well as you do yet are rich and famous while you struggle onward, this is the reason. They are great directors.”
Larry Brooks
