Three things happened that resulted in a multiday binge of the Mystic Bayou series, narrated by Amanda Ronconi and Jonathon Davis. One, some reader friends have been talking positively about the series for a while. Two, the entire series is included in my Audible membership. Three, I needed a long break from reality because sometimes reality sucks. The Mystic Bayou series is 5 novels and 2 novellas (so far). That’s about 39 1/2 hours of bingeing. Mystic Bayou is a small town in Southern Louisiana […]
I’m struggling right now with three reviews. Two of them are fantastic books that give me a lot of feelings I’m trying to translate into words.

George plays the guitar and Jules plays the drums, and they’re pretty good musicians. They’re also pretty good kids, as evidenced by their interactions with their absent-minded mom. Their love of music comes from their Uncle Bob, who is a top-notch ethnomusicologist. But Uncle Bob has disappeared. Not just, left for work one day and was never heard […]
