Ok, I am now a definite fan of Becki Willis's The sisters. A very entertaining read. She has made them come alive and I will miss them , at least until the one comes out later this year. you go girl, keep writing, please. I have been a long time reader, I am 69 and have always been a reader and a dreamer. I is difficult to find a truly different plot. You deliver.

Genny’s Ballad: The Sisters, Texas Mystery Series Book 5 is by Becki Willis. This delightful book continues a mystery set in The Sisters, Texas. It is fun to read and makes an easy and quick read. It would be great for summer reading.
Genesis Baker had left town for college and had never come back. She had gone on to Paris to work for a great chef, set up a catering business, and had come home to The Sisters and opened a restaurant here. She could still feel the whispers about her and Tommy Evan

Genny's Ballad #5 - This story concentrates on Genny and Cutter. The past and the present mix and it's not an all good combination. Well written, intriguing and substantial, this story keeps the reader immersed in the pages. The pace is fast, the action intense and the characters don't disappoint the reader; a well thought out plot. No cliffhanger, but there's another book hinted. 5*

Chicken Scratch #1 - This is my first book by this author and I was greatly surprised at how well written, well th

Creepy ex-boyfriends, layers of mystery, hunky firefighters, supportive female friends, a cozy small-town setting, and apple turnovers – Genny’s Ballad, book five in Becki Willis’s The Sisters Texas Mysteries has all of that and more.

What more? How about a compelling plot that opens with bumps and grunts in the night and said hunky firefighter coming to the rescue. But while that’s a good beginning, a novel needs more than just an opening scene. Fortunately author Willis delivers. This is no ord

I absolutely adore this series by Becki Willis! That being said, there were a few things I would point out about this one in particular. First, the foreshadowing at the beginning of the book was fine. But I was frustrated to read the exact same chapter again in it's entirety later in the book. Maybe the foreshadowing could have been just a portion of the full scene, a teaser? Secondly, I really missed Maddie and Brash. Don't get me wrong - I love Genny and Cutter! But I needed more of Maddie at ...more

This is the second book I have read by this author Becki Willis, and I loved it! I love Willis' writing. I like that she uses a strong, independent woman as her primary character, and combines her with an equally strong likeable male character to create her romance angle. I would describe this book as a romantic suspense book with a strong dose of mystery, yet the emphasis is definitely on edge of your seat suspense. Is Genesis (Genny) Baker being stalked by a killer or are there more than one e ...more

I am so glad the author did this story about Genny. It explained a lot about Genny and her feelings about Cutter. And the suspense was an edge of your seat type of suspense. You could really feel Genny's fear and anger when dealing with those stalking her. I did miss some of the other characters, but I'm sure we will see them again. I will be anxiously awaiting the Christmas story to be released.

Becki Willis writes wonderful characters and reveals the intriguing backstory with each additional novel. Genny's story is one we have all been anxiously awaiting. In true B.W. style, nothing good happens without a good read of danger and suspense first.

Another good book in the series

While the other books are mostly focused on Maddy, this one is about Genny. It was exciting, scary, and fun. I couldn't put it down.

Since writing my first "book" in grade school, I knew I wanted to be an author.

In November of '13, my dream became a reality. I now have twelve books published, won first place awards for Best Mystery Series, Best Suspense Fiction and Best Audio Book, and -- best of all -- I get to play with my imaginary playmates every day!

As an avid history buff, I like to poke around in old places and learn a
