Book Review - CORNERED COYOTE (Coyote series Book 3) - Dianne Harman

Tuesday, August 23, 2016

I actually bought this book as part of a 3 book collection a long while back. I read and reviewed the first book in this series Blue Coyote Motel (see my review here) and did a Giveaway for the Second in the series-Coyote in Provence. It seems like forever that I have been trying to get back to the third! I think I have mentioned that I should never get kindle books at least as a package deal--I do much better with them singly! But that is a personal preference!!

This book kept me reading, as did the first two, and I read it in one sitting. I could not put it down. You will love Slade Kelly, the private investigator who by hook or by crook manages to get jobs done. When Maria returns to the US from where she has been hiding out in France--she is immediately arrested for the murder of her husband. Slade with his shady background-but stellar education, puts together a team at the request of a friend. Will they be able to exonerate Maria from these false accusations?

This was an excellent ending to this series--although I think I would like to know what happens next--maybe Dianne will write a follow up and let us know?

About the Book: (from Amazon)

A Gripping tale that is hard to put down - One that is as Sweet as a Ballerina and as Pugnacious as a Pit bull!

Maria is tired of running from the law and comes back to the US from France. She murdered her husband, a deranged genius in self-defense and is arrested on arrival. Will she come out unscathed or will this be the biggest mistake of her life? Will she taste freedom or will she remain behind bars forever?

Follow the lovable yet eccentric private investigator, Slade Kelly, (a readers' favorite), as he tries to save Maria from seemingly insurmountable odds.

The story moves at a rapid pace, from the ghettos of Chicago to the beaches of Florida, from the streets of Los Angeles to the lush gardens of New York city. Each twist and turn comes with its own cast of colorful characters, from sleazy men in the mafia to hot, desperate women, who will do anything to make it big, in a world that is always trying to keep them small."

About the Author: (from Amazon)(Picture from Twitter)

Dianne Harman draws her stories and characters from a diverse business and personal background. She owned a national antique and art appraisal business for many years, left that industry, and opened two yoga centers where she taught yoga and certified yoga instructors. She's traveled extensively throughout the world, most recently dividing her time between Huntington Beach, California and Sacramento, California, where her husband was a Senator. An avid reader, Dianne brings the richness of her life experiences to her novels, Blue Coyote Motel, Coyote in Provence, and Cornered Coyote - all of which are available now in the Coyote Series. She is also the author of Tea Party Teddy and Tea Party Teddy's Legacy, California political novels.

Being a dog lover and having attended cooking schools all over the world, she couldn't resist writing about food and dogs - and her first cozy mystery, Kelly's Koffee Shop was written. It is #1 on the culinary cozy mystery list and #3 on animals. Her second book in the Cedar Bay Cozy Mystery series, Murder at Jade Cove, will be published soon..(and as we all know she has written many cozy mysteries since-all with delicious recipes)

An Award Winning Bestseller, Blue Coyote Motel was selected as a quarter finalist in Amazon's Breakthrough Novel Award contest, Goodreads Psychological Thriller of the Month Book, and e-thriller Book of the Month. Blue Coyote Motel and Coyote in Provence were finalists in Chanticleer's CLUE awards contest.

Blue Coyote Motel is a suspenseful love story which begins in the barrios of Southern California and spans the globe in such diverse locations as Provence, South America, and the Himalayas. The beautiful Latina, Maria, and her husband, Jeffrey, a scientist fired from a prestigious laboratory, struggle to build a new life in a remote Southern California desert area as owners of the motel.

Along with the anti-aging hormone, Jeffrey invents a "feel-good" wonder drug to help Maria with her depression. As Jeffrey becomes insane, he begins to experiment with the wonder drug. Six wayward travelers, including an alcoholic priest, a couple who own gold mines in Brazil, a depressed widow, a struggling salesman, and a Native American pediatrician, find themselves spending the night at the small motel. The next morning they wake up feeling better than ever. Has Jeffrey's miracle drug delivered? Or is the nightmare of addiction only beginning?

Coyote in Provence and Cornered Coyote complete the trilogy which spans the globe and introduces a character, Slade Kelly, a lovable irascible private eye, who many say has become their favorite literary character. The Mafia, food, wine, art, Provence, courtroom drama - all find a place in these books.

The Teddy saga is a multicultural romance set against the political background of California. It's the story of Nina, whose husband succumbs to the power of his office. Bigoted and biased, the ultimate irony occurs when she becomes romantically involved with the founder of the Republicans for Latinos, and in the process, discovers herself. The story continues in Tea Party Teddy's Legacy, a conclusion to Tea Party Teddy in the form of a novella.

Book Review -Nisei, A Novel - J.J. White

Monday, August 22, 2016

This is definitely a genre I steer clear of normally (Historical/War-Military/Japanese-American)--I am not into war. That said I am very glad I agreed to read this one when asked. The things they don't teach us in history class--unbelievable. This is a work of fiction but based on real events!

Let me clear up some of the words first since a lot of us don't know the meaning--

Nisei - A Japanese son or daughter, born and educated in the United States, whose parents emigrated from Japan
Issei - A man or woman who were born in Japan but emigrated to the United States
Haole - A White American

This book uses a lot of words that the Hawaiian Japanese used back then and some even in pidgeon-but all words are explained within the pages of this novel. Also be sure to read the Author's note at the beginning of the novel.

This is the story, written in the form of a memoir, from Hidio Takahashi as he was dying to his son, Robert Yakahashi. He had a translator write down his story as he spoke it. It tells of his life, how he was accused wrongly of being a spy and how he and his family were sent to an interment camp, and what they were like. It tells of his love from an early age for Mary (who did love him back)-but how both their fathers forbid it. It also tells the story of the soldiers of the 442nd--a unit in the army of Hawaiian Japanese Americans who fought for the United States in WWII.

Will what is written stop Robert from committing suicide? Will the revelations about who he really is haunt him or set him free?

Yes, this is also a love story written beautifully and I hope that all people read this book---To forget history means it might just happen again (heaven forbid).

About the Book: (from Amazon)

After the attack on Pearl Harbor, the United States Government encouraged all eligible young men to enlist immediately in the fight against its enemies overseas--all eligible young men, except Japanese-Americans. Nisei is the story of Hideo "Bobby" Takahashi, a Hawaiian-born Japanese-American who must overcome prejudice, internment, and the policies of his own government to prove his loyalty to his country. Narrated by Bobby Takahashi and read by his son, Robert, forty-six years after Bobby's death, the story details the young Nisei's determination to fight honorably for his country and return to the young love he was forced to leave--a girl he cannot have because she is White.
