Blue Mercy

When reading what this book was about. I was very excited to read it. But when I started to read it, it was very different from what I imagined. Very disappointing.

The whole idea that "Star" Maria had this attitude on her was very tiresome. I was ready to say enough. A brat, b****. Until you read about her mother Mercy. A shame that history repeats itself. But there is no call for Maria, the daughter to repeat abuse everything. Growing pains, sure if you want to believe that.

To the very end Star still can't rein in her feelings for her mother. Not even after she got everything she wanted.

Mercy sacrificed herself for her daughter's happiness. But the 1 questioned is not even answered who did kill Da?

I give Blue Mercy 3 
Good writing but could do with less drama. Would of loved to actually not see what was coming.

Marsh Madness

What can I say about this book? Second book in this little series. Mam, Lindsey, and Bonnie were just as great characters as before when introduced from  Fiddle Dee Death. A mystery a mist but this time I think the girls had their hands full with a wedding @ the Pinckney Plantation and baby sitting MaryMar with her stalker. 

It was a little disappointing that they didn't have that chance sinking their teeth in a mystery. Will was more vocal this time as Lindsey's boyfriend and Major of law enforcement. Love their quarks. Mam watching a lot of CSI thinking she knows everything about crime now, Lindsey still likes her Coca Cola, and Bonnie looking at everything wisely. Got to know more on their other halves lives. Which was nice.

A good story with the Southern characters that intertwine with all. Didn't matter if they were the culprit or the owner of Pinckney. Nice!

I give Marsh Madness 4 
Only because I miss the girls getting involved like sleuths.
