I have had this on my shelf for awhile and didn‘t really know what to expect. I loved it and could not put it down. I‘ve already put the next book on hold at my library. It was fascinating to read a mystery from the POV of a black Texas Ranger, trying to solve 2 murders in a small Texas town that was controlled by the Aryan Brotherhood.

Mitch I really loved this to! And ive got book 2 on the TBR! 21h

I finally finished watching Ken Burns‘ Country Music documentary and was glad to see Van Zandt was featured, despite his lack of commercial success. Kruth, the biographer, is definitely much more of a music journalist than a historian, which makes this much more entertaining, even though it‘s a bit of a pastiche of anecdotes. This one has been in my to-read pile for years (it still had a Borders price tag 😩)

A black Québécois moves to Austin, TX in this fun, fish-out-of-water YA novel.

This book delivered almost everything I want in a YA book:
?? Catchy premise. Each chapter starts with field notes.
?? Not too much romance.
?? Has issues, but not heavy like my adult fiction.
?? Some comedy, too.

Other than being disappointed by the cheesiness of the epilogue, this was a hit! 4⭐️

There will be a feeling of "this is the same book," but this book is just as good as the first one. It doesn't rest on the Black Ranger vs the Aryan Nation, but looks at the complexities of trying to do your job when everyone hates you for your skin color and you are finding a child who will be your enemy as he grows, but all are human with their own flaws. This is a great series so far, but you need the first book as it takes off from that one.

Finished this on audio last night. I enjoyed it, really good narrator with a smooth voice. I considered this a cozy mystery compared to what I normally read.

I forgot to post This! But this was my pick for the current round of mark-up book club and it was very very good. A tough read at times and maybe a little slow to get started, but interesting characters, and a really propulsive, exciting final stretch. Excellent depiction of a small town and really incisive

Mehso-so

I'm the odd one out, because everyone else is in love with the book, but I found it very meh.
I didn't really connect with the charakters or the mystery.
I however really loved the writing style since the author wrote a rather amthospheric novel. It felt like your walking with Darren in this small village in East Texan.
This book was not my cup of tea, but I would read the author again.

I really enjoyed this book. It drew me in immediately and stirred a lot of emotions within me. It did take a moment for the story to get moving however, I was drawn in from the beginning. The detail that Locke goes into helps to immerse you in this small town. This was my first book by this author but I have added all her books to my tbr pile. Thank you @grumpygirlbooks for the pick! @Lovesbooks87 it‘s on its way to you. I‘m sorry it‘s so late.

Blaire Nice review. I‘ve been looking forward to getting it this one. 2w

I truly enjoy Karen' characters. They each have brokenness but loving God is center in life. Always a touch of humor as well. Historical romantic fiction
