I read most of the series as individual books. I find it easier to follow the series that way. However, this is an opportunity to enjoy the entire Skip Langton series in order, and for this series, I find it best that way.
Set aside a good chunk of time; you won't want to put it down.
The first book sets the scene. I could feel the dense humid atmosphere of a New Orleans summer envelope me as I learned about the city's cultural background. As with other series, Julie Smith's ability to engross the reader with great skill is stunning. I had the good fortune to visit the city, and even though it was about 50 years ago, she exquisitely describes the French quarter, right down to the cafe au lait and beignets. An amazing introduction to the world of Skip Langdon.
The series moves on to set the stage for the many and varied characters. The talent to slide seamlessly among the cast to give each his or her unique personality is more typical of good literature than any "cozy" I have ever come across!
The series provides a superb travel through Skip's dysfunctional family forest.
The first three volumes set the scene, and introduce the primary characters. However, don't get too comfortable. The fun is just starting!
As the series progresses, the tales take some darker turns, but never loses the underlying wit and charm possessed by the leading characters. To avoid any inadvertent spoilers, I will skip any more details.
Suffice it to say that I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys really great writing. Julie Smith is a great find. Her other series are also not to be missed (particularly the Talba Wallis set). But I digress.
Thank you for the gift of your writing. It just doesn't get any better. Recommendation: READ THIS SERIES!!
1. My name, Lorraine, is in one. 2. I've been to New Orleans. 3. My nephew's grandparents live in Covington and we have visited there!!
Looking forward to more Skip Langdon books!!
