That said however, there were no such fears in this novel. Her writing is crisp and clean and there are rich, fully developed, idiosyncratic characters. Our hero has her own issues and the even when we discover the 'bad guy or gal' (so as not to spoil) s/he isn't really pure evil and has some layers of complications. There's also some open ended opportunities for the thorough line of the main character so we know there will be sequels to her adventures (and I confess that I haven't read the first 3, so I may need to read those to catch up) and a progress on her personal development as a character, a blogger and a sleuth.
Additionally, the plot is interesting. We meet fascinating characters along the way (all fully developed) and each chapter ends with a powerful 'bet you want to know what happens next' event that propels you forward and ticks you off when you realize you have to be somewhere and can't start the next chapter.
In short, I would recommend this book highly. Even if I wasn't her sort of friend.
Josie leaves behind Boston for Austen Texas. Her boyfriend, Drew, is attending a medical conference. For Josie, it’s a chance for her to extol BBQ on her food blog and spend time with her hunka-hunka.
Of course, she hears about a decades old mystery and is compelled to investigate.
Funny, full of snark, and a joy to read.
Fans of the series will enjoy Josie's little adventures around the big mystery. I really liked how Josie's character grew this book. I won't give anything away, but Josie makes some big realizations about herself and her life.
Looking forward to seeing what mess Josie gets herself into next!
EM Kaplan leads us on a delightful romp through the Texas Hill Country where he describes a fanciful BBQ joint family, a decades missing wife and the stories told about her mysterious disappearance.
Kaplan writes in an almost stream of consciousness at times, evoking Southern writers from Bill Faulkner to James Whitehead. Kaplan also sets up a subplot which could include a ghost. He never really developed the supernatural. Somehow supernatural would seem to grate on Cedar choppers and Q-slabbers.
This is a great read. It has a thick tasty smoke edge. Yummy.
