Greetings from a native Southern Californian!I've been married 37 years to my high school sweetheart, Allen, who was born in Kansas. We met when we were fifteen. We don't have children, but are owned by a spoiled and extremely intelligent Pembroke Welsh corgi named Boudin. We call him Boo. Though I'm a native Southern Californian, my parents are not. My father was born in Colorado and grew up in a migrant worker family. My mother's family were cotton sharecropers in Arkansas. I've been writing since I was in my late-twenties. I published my first novel, Fool's Puzzle, when I was in my late thirties. I like to ride horses when I can (and luckily, have friends who own horses), walk my dog, travel with my husband, sometimes do scrapbooking when I have time. I have three sisters. I'm the number two sister. I was named after my father and my grandfather. Both of them are named Earl. The first book I remember reading by myself was Curious George. I think it was the one where he went to the circus. My favorite fictional character is Old Yeller. He had courage and loyalty, two virtues I admire greatly. If I wasn't a writer, I'd love to be a dog trainer. Back in the 1980's, for a year and a half, I taught a weekly craft class at a retirement home in Covina, California. My youngest member was in her late sixties; my oldest was ninety-eight. Those fifteen women taught me way more than I ever taught them. I love strawberry ice cream and fried tacos. Together or separately. Doesn't matter.

Where to start with why I didn't like this book. Let's start with the fact that I was invested in the characters from the beginning. I cared about what happened to them and after the last book I felt confident that things would work out as the author led this reader to believe. Then she yanked t...

I love Earlene Fowler's Benni Harper mystery series, but shied away from this book for years because it sounded sappy. It wasn't sappy, but I still didn't like it much. Even though I knew from reading the acknowledgments in her Benni Harper books that she is a vocal Christian (not in a bad way - j...

Reading this now - 7 years after the first read - I wonder if Fowler's editor convinced her she'd overplayed Gabriel's machismo in the last book and recommended toning it down. Gabriel isn't perfect, in this 4th book, but he's nothing like the horse's ass he was previously. There's a lot of fam...

Re-reading this 7 years later, this book did not hold up as well as the others. My impatience with series books with 'away' settings reared its ugly head and I struggled with impatience. And Gabriel was an ass throughout most of this book. Not a misogynist, not a men-are-smarter-than-women ass, b...

I could have done without the massive relationship angst in this one, but in spite of this my original rating stands. I loved the tie-in to the history of Japanese Americans during WWII; a part of American history that needs to be remembered and acknowledged. The mystery plot of this one was ex...
