Book Review Friday - New Orleans Requiem

Have you ever picked up a book that sucks you in from the first chapter? Has it been a while? Fear not.... I have the perfect book for you to put on your reading list.

I was approached by Astor + Blue to see if I would be interested in reading and reviewing a Puzzling and Plump New Orleans Murder.  Investigating an unusual murder in which the victim was left with four board-game tiles on his chest, New Orleans medical examiner Andy Broussard and psychologist Kit Franklyn realize that they are the next targets.

Donaldson does such a great job of creating a scenery, story and mystery with such a twist at the end that even this seasoned mystery reader was surprised. The characters come to life within the sites and sounds of New Orleans. I would highly recommend this book.

  1. Thanks Brenda...I'll put it on my list.

  2. One of the first "big" books I read a long, long, long time ago was titled "New Orleans" - it made me fall in love with reading and with New Orleans. I've since read numerous books set there and pretty much love them all. I still love New Orleans and hope to go back there one day! :)
