    Not My Cup Of Tea

    I really didn't care for this book much. I think the reason is that I really dislike authors who portray or try to portray people who live in the South and fail miserably. Maybe there are people like Wanda Nell Culpepper and Mayrene and Wanda Nell's daughter who had a baby out of wedlock with a black man, but that's not exactly admired in my neck of the woods. I live in the deep South and I don't call people honey and I know no one who totes around a shotgun everywhere they go. Okay, I understand it is fiction, but very weak storyline, no character development for the teacher or the lawyer at all. The only thing all the men in this book had in common was that they had the hots for Wanda Nell. Whatever. Anyway, it's just my opinion, I may be wrong. :)

    solid regional amateur sleuth tale

    In Tullahoma, Mississippi Wanda Nell Culpepper works two on your feet jobs to keep food on the table for her three children and her grandchild. When she finishes her shift as a waitress at the Kountry Kitchen she comes home to take a nap before working graveyard stocking the shelves at the Budget Mart. This time she comes home to find her deadbeat ex-husband Bobby Ray inside their trailer home; since he never pays child support, Wanda Nell is shocked to see him give five one hundred dollar bills to their daughter for her to use on his grandson. Wanda Nell tosses Bobby Ray out of her home with many of the trailer park residents witnessing the ugly scene. The next morning Wanda Nell finds Bobby Ray dead just outsde her trailer with the family pink flamingo lawn ornament shoved through his body. Sheriff Department Officer Elmer Lee Johnson, Bobby Ray¿s friend, leads the investigation. He assumes Wanda Nell killed Bobby Ray; she realizes she better uncover the identity of the killer or between Elmer and her former mother-in-law she could end up in prison. --- FLAMINGO FATALE is a solid regional amateur sleuth tale that uses the backdrop of the rural south to provide a fine who-done-it. Wanda Nell feels strongly that she has no choice but to solve the murder of her former spouse because the lead investigator only looks her way. Jimmie Ruth Evans provides a wonderful Mississippi mystery that stars a fabulous protagonist, a delightful eccentric support cast that brings Tullahoma especially the diner and the trailer park alive, and a surprising final peck.--- Harriet Klausner
