the Wind and Shadows of the Blues as soon as I received Bodacious Blues I was completely ready to delve into Whitney J LeBlanc s Creole family trilogy Unfortunately, I could not find a library near me with the books, so I was faced with a dilemma read book three before the others Would not knowing the character s pasts leave me completely out of the loop Well, after mulling it over for a bit, I finally decided to go for it, and 350 pages later, I am glad that I did The first thing I noticed about this book was its intense cover art alluring women, voodoo dolls, the famous Hollywood sign, and a fist violently crushing and fracturing the images into sharp segments, excellent foreshadowing of what is to come The second thing I noticed was the short synopsis of the two previous novels, as well as a short description of the family lineage Many thanks to the author, these six pages let me know a semblance of what I missed Once I got into the actual story, I was surprised to realize how much I enjoyed getting to know the characters, especially Les, Caryn, Lightfoot, Naomi, Ann, Rosa, and Lala I may not have read previous books, but Whitney J LeBlanc has a way of infusing characters with infectious personalities no matter how minor a character may be Every character I encountered was well developed, realistic, and influential I thought about these characters and their stories well after I completed the book, which I stayed up till 2am to finish The dialect was also well written and authentic, leaving the reader immersed in the world of whatever character was in focus I liked the idea ofthan one plot since there were so many vibrant characters to keep track of I liked Les and Caryn s story the best, but Ann s was a close second Bodacious Blues could definitely be a standalone volume, its characters and rich story lines are strong and well constructed I will be reading the previous books as soon as I can find copies Recommended for readers who like a great family saga and characters they will never forget.Overall Rating On the Run 4 5 I received this book from the author Bostick Communications in exchange for an honest and unbiased review As indicated in the
