Review of D.J. Donaldson’s Sleeping with the Crawfish

sleeping I love the title of the D.J. Donaldson book, Sleeping with the Crawfish. It was the first thing that drew me to the crime fiction novel. This third installment of the series about Kit Franklyn and Andy Broussard is just as exciting and entertaining as its two predecessors.

In this book, Kit is “taking a break” from her stressful job as a psychologist but Andy at the medical examiner’s office needs her help. Little did she know that her life would be put in danger by becoming involved.

The numerous plot twists and turns draw in the reader and keep him hooked to the end. This detailed forensic piece with the New Orleans almost mystical setting cannot help but keep the guesses flowing as to who dunnit.

Sleeping with the Crawfish is a great book. I recommend it to mystery-lovers and Louisiana-lovers alike. I give it 4 stars.

I Think I May be Reading More than My Fair Share

I have done something pretty rare for me and I don’t even know why. I have started and am reading three books at once. And, they are all very, very different. My current reading includes:

Les Miserables by Victor Hugo


The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich by Timothy Ferriss


Camping and Woodcraft by Horace Kephart


I find myself reading a little of one, putting it down, reading a little of another, putting it down, etc. It’s not terribly confusing because the books are so varied but it is taking me a little time to “get back into” each book when I pick it back up. It’s like “What do I feel like reading right now?” And I pick that one up. There’s no telling when I’ll finish them. They are each around 300 pages long. Luckily Kephart and Hugo’s books are mine so I can take a little longer on those. I guess I’ll finish Ferriss first since it’s a library book.

Wish me luck!
