Re: Opal Fire


I haven't heard of the author either! I usually don't read that sort of contemporary novel, but I have gotten into a few mysteries that I really liked. Good characters certainly make it a better tale!

Are the other books about the same sisters or are they all stand-alone stories?

I just pulled up the author's page, and the main [sign in to see URL] Justice (the reporter) has a [sign in to see URL] yes, there are more books with these characters! You can bet I'll be hooking up with some of them!!

I've just started another mystery, by another author I'd never heard of, and so far, it's also got me hooked, but I need to put down the Kindle and get back to reading the book club book!! emoticon (having a hard time getting into that one!...Science just isn't my [sign in to see URL])
