On Archimedes Street

When I opened the package that contained this book, I stepped back seeing the name Jefferson Parrish. Being originally from New Orleans, I knew that this has to be a nom de plume. For those of you who do not know, the state of Louisiana is not made up of counties but parishes. New Orleans is in Orleans Parish while most of the suburbs that surround the city are in Jefferson Parish.

This book just got more and more interesting. The more I read, the more I wanted to know about them all. The beauty of it is how one boy Flip Abbott manages to find out how things work and at the same time he challenges every aspect of what he knows. The more he faces, the more he questions. And it ends up being that much more addictive for the reader. If you like, society novels, humor, and the life of those that can afford to live in such a life, and then I would recommend it.

This book surprised me. It started a little slow but the more I read the more I liked it. Its definitely not the same old same old and had me laughing out loud several times. Excellent writing, great story, well developed characters and an HEA. As a bonus, there were secondary characters that were almost as much fun as the main ones. It's a nice long read but goes quickly. A little too quickly for me - I think I could have read and enjoyed double the page count. Buy it - you won't regret it.

Pretty Sally Couldn't Marry Albert

Wow! I am a new fan of Jefferson Parrish. This was another of those pleasant surprises. The title did not woo me in but I am so glad I read this story. . . . If you love a sweet story of family, broken men, stroke patients, recovery, cryptic messages, Valentine's Day and need a great short story to make you smile this one is it!

I really liked this story about two men, both nearly past middle-age, who find each other again after many years apart. One is recovering from a stroke, the other struggles to make ends meet.

A very good story. One of the best in the anthology. It was beautifully written, emotional and I believed the characters. Incredibly well done. I loved the depth here and the men being more mature was fantastic.
