Whispers of the Bayou
Whispers of the Bayou by Mindy Starns Clark is this month's book club choice. It is a mystery that is set primarily in Louisiana. Miranda spent the first five years of her life in Louisiana, then moved to New York to live with her aunt. In the story she is 32 years old and suddenly called to return to her childhood home. Miranda ends up going and learns much about the first years of her life, which she had forgotten up to that point. I don't read many mysteries, but this book had me hooked shortly after I began reading it. The surprises start early in the story, and it was filled with more surprises that made me keep wondering what was going to happen as I read. Even if reading mysteries isn't your favorite thing you would likely enjoy this story.
