This review is from: West of Bandera (Paperback)
I seek out Texas writers and stories set in our great state, but sadly, it's not often I find a great story, great writing style and accuracy in these books. I was delighted to read West of Bandera and share it with my husband. Fast moving story, characters that I definately want to see again in a future novel and the author has an obvious love and familiarity with the Texas Hill Country. The reverence and respect by the author for his characters and their backstory was nicely done - not too heavy handed and not so sparse that you didn't care about them. I don't know if this was intentional or a happy accident, but Janette and Rhett reminded me so much of the characters "Nick & Nora Charles" from the book "The Thin Man"! Give us a sequel please - it's been a long time since I really loved a book enough to give it five stars.
