    Dixon Sinclair arrives in Jexville, Mississippi, the town of her forebears, to find solace, stop drinking, and rebuild her life after her father’s murder. As the new publisher of the weekly newspaper and a second-generation journalist, she’s determined to ignite the political will of the townspeople and expose the corruption of the old guard. She forms an uneasy partnership with Sheriff J.D. Horton, another prodigal son returned hoping to find peace and a sense of fulfillment by keeping his town safe.

    Story
    Would you listen to Judas Burning again? Why?

    Yes. It's a good story and does not wander nor have a lot of unneeded details which always distract me especially in a mystery.


    What other book might you compare Judas Burning to and why?

    Can't really think of another book to compare this one to, but I thought this one was very good


    What about Courtney Patterson’s performance did you like?

    I thought she handled the southern accent extremely well. Lots of narrators butcher the southern accent and she seemed to be close to the characters in the book. Overall, I think she added a lot to the book - I listen to a lot of audiobooks and I know that the narrator can make or break an audiobook.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No. It made me a little sad at the end but that's because it didn't end as I expected.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the first of Carolyn Haines' novels that I have read or listened to. This book was recommended by a friend and it was well worth the time. I hope to find more of Ms. Haines books.
