Love a good Mafia/Gangster/Bad Guys story?  How about a TRUE ONE?  Well, then this is for you!  "I HEARD YOU PAINT HOUSES,"  is the Inside Story of the Mafia, the Teamsters, and the Last Ride of union leader Jimmy Hoffa.

"I heard you paint houses," are the first words Jimmy Hoffa ever spoke to Frank "The Irishman" Sheeran.

To paint a house is to kill a man. The paint is the blood that splatters on the walls and floors. In the course of nearly five years of recorded interviews Frank Sheeran confessed to Charles Brandt that he handled more than twenty five hits for the mob, and for his friend Hoffa.

This is one fantastic read.  Suspenseful, thrilling, gripping.  Not just for awhile, but throughout every page.  This book is an absolute “can’t put it down!” book.  Full of history, mystery, sadness, puzzles, wonders, events that will make you cry, laugh, and wonder.  And our hero, Cotton Malone, one time U.S. operative, takes it all in stride, guiding us through the realm of mystery.

This is the first book of a great series.  Murder, humor, tears and lots of edge of your seat twists and turns.  If you love James Bond and Dirty Harry, with  maybe just a tad of Colombo and James Rockford thrown in for good measure, you will absolutely adore “Beau”.

If you’re anything like me and you loved gothics, and especially southern gothics, mystery, laughs, spookiness, a touch of romance, and of course, a great heroine to take you through the story……you’ll love Sara Booth Delaney and her cohorts.  Especially Jitty, Sarah Booth's great, great grandmother's nanny, who regulary haunts the Delaney ancestral plantation and  is dead, no pun intended, and set on Sarah Booth getting married and having babies especially since Sarah Booth especially since Sarah Booth is already over thirty! especially since Sarah Booth is already over thirty!

The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas.  Dashingly handsome men and beautiful evil women...what fun!  This review is a bit different, because this book has been made into a movie countless times, so I am going to review both…..and then let you in on a bit of Trivia Truth which many of you may never have heard before.
