If you haven‘t had the pleasure of reading Attica Locke books I highly recommend her Highway 59 series. #wintergames

Ranger Darren Matthews is asked to look into the disappearance of the young son of a member of the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas. He finds himself in a racist viper pit of a small town. It‘s a good story with some interesting parallel stories occurring, but for me it wasn‘t as strong as Bluebird, Bluebird. I really like this character and hope to see him again.

I enjoyed this second installment of the series. You definitely need to read Bluebird, Bluebird first to understand much of this story.

Had a day off today, so squeezed another book in a day read! (That‘s my retirement aim)
This one was even better than the first, but he certainly is a complicated character that makes many questionable decisions. Here‘s to more in the series 👍🏻
Thanks Jess for the book and the lovely card that‘s just come today 😘

Velvetfur It's great when you can put away a whole book in one day isn't it 😂👍 1mo
KathyWheeler I haven‘t read this yet because, in the first book, Darren and his questionable decisions made my so antsy! I was constantly worried for him. I will read this book; I just need to be able to handle that nervousness. 1mo
MicheleinPhilly I have the day off today too. Need to pick my next read. 1mo

Atticka Locke is easily my favourite crime-thriller writer at the moment, and this is the book that‘s finally dragged me out of my reading slump.

Darren Mathews is sent to Hopetown, ostensibly to investigate a missing child. Or maybe to find out more about his white supremacist family. And he has his own reasons for going...

The lake, the blues and the totally messed-up actions of Darren are just so believable. All the stars!

RachelO Thanks and sorry to #netgalley for the late review. 2mo

squirrelbrain I loved the first one in this series (that you gifted to me!) I tried to get this one on #netgalley but it‘s no longer available.... 2mo
RachelO @4thhouseontheleft 🌲🌴🌲 Pixabsy‘s finest 😉! Couldn‘t find anything round here that would quite substitute for East Texas! 2mo
RachelO @Cathythoughts I think you‘ll enjoy these, Cathy - I‘d listened to 2 or 3 of her books on audio, so wasn‘t sure how I‘d handle the move to print. But I was still walking round the house not wanting to put it down! 2mo
RachelO @squirrelbrain ☹️ I would send you this, if it wasn‘t firmly attached to my kindle! 2mo
squirrelbrain @RachelO 🤣🤣 I shall just have to wait until it comes out in paperback, or the library gets it in.... 2mo
KathyWheeler Just for a heads up so I can prepare myself, are Darren‘s actions so reckless that I‘ll be worrying about him the whole time, like I did with Bluebird, Bluebird? 2mo
RachelO @KathyWheeler Entirely possible! He has resolved precisely nothing since Bluebird. I may have yelled at him once or twice. 2mo
KathyWheeler @RachelO okay — I just needed to be prepared for that anxiety. 😊 I called him idiotic several times in Bluebird. 2mo

I have to rush this back to the library before my fines get any bigger 🙈 but damn! I loved it! Ranger Darren Matthews is one of the most emotionally layered and conflicted characters I've ever read. It is so nerve wracking to watch him try and do the right thing. Also exploring racial tension is something Locke excels at and this book feels especially poignant right now. Can't wait for more Highway 59 books!

Happy Weekend, book friends! We are in full cozy mode at my house tonight as a fall rainstorm rolls in! This week was pretty uneventful. A lot of writing, and running, and reading. I'm trying to finish this one up.... It's overdue at the library and I'm sorry, not sorry because I really want to finish it. Texas Ranger Darren Matthews is such a complicated man and this story is 💯!!!

What's new with all of you this week?

gradcat Love that title. Hope you don‘t have any problems from the storm! ♥️ (edited) 2mo
Sace I think we're getting some rain. I plan on going to the grocery store then reading until Monday 😊 Hope you are safe and snug during the storms. 2mo
Suet624 I‘m so thrilled that I unexpectedly got Friday off from work. Therefore, I did most of my chores yesterday. Today I put the flower garden to bed and read. Tomorrow football and read. Fun little projects mixed in. Such luxury. 2mo

valeriegeary @Suet624 sounds like a productive and relaxing weekend! I need to put my veggie garden to bed soon too! It's supposed to be sunny again next week so I guess I better put it on my to-do list! 😄 2mo
valeriegeary @Sace right now it's sunny outside.... So maybe we'll get lucky and it will only be a few showers. They are terrible at forecasting our rain. 😂 2mo
valeriegeary @gradcat should be relatively boring as far as storms go.... Just rain rain rain. 😆 2mo
gradcat @valeriegeary Good! You‘ll be safe then. ❤️ 2mo
MamaGina It‘s raining here too. ☔️ I just lit a wood wick candle and am contemplating what to make for dinner. Was notified earlier today that my hold for this book is in, glad to hear it‘s enjoyable!🤓 2mo
valeriegeary @MamaGina sound cozy! What did you end up having for dinner? 😆 2mo

Happy weekend, Littens! Boy have I had a Saturday! I ran 7 miles this morning then went to the pumpkin patch with my niece and nephew and am just now finally relaxing in my favorite spot on the couch with a book that's been on my most anticipated list since I read Bluebird, Bluebird two years ago! But first....Time to make the rounds and see what you all have been up to. 😘

Told in excellent Attica Locke fashion! No one tells a mystery like her. Full of small town talk, mystery, pain in the ass women all wrapped up with some history. I highly recommend book 2 of the Highway 59 series, you won‘t be disappointed. Please read book 1 Bluebird, Bluebird first though.

Liatrek I just finished this one too. I really hope we get a third book. She just has an amazing way of telling a story. 2mo

This book is Intense and twisty with wonderfully fleshed out flawed characters. The opening descriptions immediately transported me to a dark vast lake with a scared little boy desperately trying to get back home. Darren is one of those main characters you read on pins and needles worried about their questionable decision and repercussions but loving them all the same. I‘ve said it here before but Attica Locke is hands down my favorite author!

KathyWheeler Exactly! It took me a long time to finish it because I was always putting it down because I was so afraid something was going to happen to Darren. 3mo

An incredible continuation in the Highway 59 series picking up just a couple months after Bluebird, Bluebird. A new case in a small lake town sends Darren back on the road while previous plot threads and characters are more tightly woven into his personal life. I love this series!
