    Not as fantastic as the previous three books, but still a really good read This book has a lot to do about Mickey s family life So many twists and turns that I felt like I was reading a soap opera, but it kept things interesting The mystery was in the background, but still had an exciting climax that Redmann is great at writing Looking forward to book 5.

    J.M Redmann consistently keeps hitting it out of the park with the Mickey Knight series In part 4 Lost Daughters we stay closer to home as Mickey takes on two cases that involve a mother looking for her lost daughter and an adopted son looking for his birth mother It makes her think of her own mother who abandoned her when she was 5 Coming home for a funeral reveal some matters that make Mickey determined to find out the truth once and for all.Next to Mickey s sleuthing we have a secondary plot involving a chain of brutally murdered closeted lesbians that seem to have a connection to her lover Cordelia s clinic Or do they Superb writing and a great plot kept me reading into the wee hours of the morning I don t mind losing sleep when it concerns Mickey Knight If you haven t started this series yet, you are really missing out I m just sayin.f f Themes New Orleans, mothers and daughters, family 5 Stars

    I have to say I m freaking loving this series as Fallback Friday reads It s completely gripping, and VERY well written Personally, this particular novel felt slower than the first 3 It s lighter on the mystery suspense plots and leans heavier on character advancement In my opinion though, it had to happen to advance the series and I didn t mind In fact, it s one of the shorter books in the series so far even though it did feel longer as a read Micky Knight is so complex as a character and the advancement felt natural and necessary to grow her further The twists and turns as we find out of Micky s early family life was masterfully handled, and I can t wait for the next book to find out As a Fallback Friday read, this book is set 3 years after the close of book 3 n the series, and we re finally starting to see technology slowly creep into this series at this point First publishing of the book was in 1998, so it makes sense that we re seeing changes My copy is the Bold Strokes 2009 re published version Anyway, Micky has a friend use the internet for a few cursory searches, and several characters now have car phones Towards the end, Micky s girlfriend Cordelia even mentions getting Micky a cell phone I was still aware that it s an older book, but didn t care one bit.I m wholeheartedly and unashamedly invested in this series, and can t wait to pick up the next book 4 stars.

    3.5 stars This one took a really long time to keep my interest and I figured out who the bad guy was early on Not the best of the Mickey Knight series so far but it was good to get a glimpse into her history to learn why she is the way she is.

    This fourth book in the Micky Knight series is extraordinarily balanced with multiple story lines that delightfully intersect and support the shared searches for lost daughters There are also a disturbing number of murders that hit home and at the heart for Micky and her close friends Micky is not only a key element in the searches, but uncovers the curious link that really ties all the murders together Such a magnificent story that weaves back and forth between the harsh realities and delicate yet profound love of children and their mothers Perfect Micky Knight starts things off by celebrating her third anniversary with her love, Cordelia That is an exceptional milestone and is given a wonderfully appreciative hats off to both women for achieving it Very soon thereafter, Micky digs in on her assignments to find missing relatives for one distraught gay guy s need for his birth mother, one bereft mother in search of her daughter, and her own need to get some definitive answers about her mother This is all happening while lesbian women are being brutally murdered, and an uncomfortable link to Cordelia s clinic seems to be a factor Suzanna Forquet becomes an astounding touchstone for several of Micky s inquiries She also puts a major move on Micky which certainly sends the sparks flying Suzanna s husband, his all round butler, and her neediness to stay far, far away from her desperately poor childhood makes her than a fascinating counterpoint as she and Micky have several jousting like encounters I found Suzanna as intriguing as Micky did, but her fluctuating and compromised marital entanglements reveal a forlorn and shallow foundation that hints at a perilous and extremely fragile lifestyle Fascinating Several lives were shattered, a few people were blessed, and Micky is right in the middle of everything I than recommend this book for not only the delightful Micky antics, the hellish do or die concluding confrontation, but the brilliant touching reunions This is a solid addition to the ongoing Micky Knight saga NOTE This book was provided by Bold Strokes Books for the purpose of a review on Rainbow Book Reviews.

    She s done it again Whew This one was great I love that in each book Micky also solves some important mystery in her own life I was bawling at the end And though I figured out what would happen, the details took me by surprise, yet they fit perfectly Terrific.I see Bywater has a version of this I read the Bold Strokes Books edition and was very disappointed in the binding It was stiff and hard to hold.

    I checked this book out of the library after hearing the author speak at a Mystery Readers and Writers Conference, and I liked it very much The description of the fight between Micky and her lover, Cordelia, over vacuuming the house sounded so much like some fights between my boyfriend and me that was as if J.M Redmann had been inside my head As a resident of the New Orleans area, the setting and its residents seemed very authentic.My favorite line The woman from the house next door decided, like all good New Orleanians, that her input was required So typical

    Book Info Genre Detective Lesbian Noir Reading Level Adult Disclosure I received a free copy of book 7 in this series in exchange for an honest review I purchased the rest of the books in the series myself, so am under no particular obligation, but am happy to provide an honest review.Synopsis Micky takes on the cases of a widowed mother looking for her daughter and a tough gay boy hunting for his biological mother Together they stir in Micky a desire to search for her own mother, who abandoned her when she was a young girl When a young woman patient is murdered at her lover s clinic it seems to be just a bizarre coincidence But when another woman, also a patient, is murdered, these events reveal the frightening possibility that they are than just random chances Even alarming, the killer seems to know too much about the victims As the killer circles ever closer to Micky and the lost daughter she is trying to reconnect to her mother the coincidences become a grisly reality the one characteristic all the victims share is that they dare to love other women My Thoughts This seems on the surface to share certain plot elements with book 2 the murders occurring at the clinic being frighteningly similar to those made to look at botched abortions However, the books are very different The focus in the books is very much on reuniting mothers and daughters Lorraine and her mother, Bourban St Ann a drag queen with his hers, and finally, Micky s search for her own mother It was rather poignant, as I m adopted myself and have considered many times whether I should try to find my birth mother or not.Micky s friends were very much on the periphery again in this book, which takes place 3 years after the previous book unlike the first three, which all take place within about a year We don t even see very much of Cordelia, who is very busy being a doctor However, the book was riveting and I read it through as quickly as I could, only stopping for a brief nap when I got too tired to see straight Highly recommended.
