The Jealous Kind: A Novel (A Holland Family Novel) - James Lee Burke

This was actually my first James Lee Burke book. I've read several of his daughter's books, I've even met her. Sad, it's taken me this long to find him.

What a great book this was! This book was full of everything. Action, heart, love, nostalgia, evil, honesty, goodness, innocence, rebellion, the mob, I mean the list just goes on. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The fact that it was based in Houston also added to my appeal. While the time period was 40 years before I got here, it was kind of educational and interesting to learn a little history while reading fiction.

Of course, it was action packed and the pages were just flying past. An excellent read and I enjoyed every minute of it.

Huge thanks to Simon and Schuster for approving my request and to Net Galley for providing the free e-galley in exchange for an honest review.
