    How to Be an American Housewife is a novel about mothers and daughters and the pull of tradition. It tells the story of Shoko, a Japanese woman who married an American GI, and her grown daughter, Sue, a divorced mother whose life as an American housewife hasn't been what she'd expected. When illness prevents Shoko from traveling to Japan, she asks Sue to go in her place. The trip reveals family secrets that change their lives in dramatic and unforeseen ways.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If you like family sagas this one is right up there. If you enjoy Oriental tales, this is for you.


    What about Laural Merlington and Emily Durante ’s performance did you like?

    Accents were great.

    Creole Belle begins where the last book in the Dave Robicheaux series, The Glass Rainbow, ended. Dave is in a recovery unit in New Orleans, where a Creole girl named Tee Jolie Melton visits him and leaves him an iPod with the country blues song “Creole Belle” on it. Then she disappears. Dave becomes obsessed with the song and the memory of Tee Jolie and goes in search of her sister, who later turns up inside a block of ice floating in the Gulf.

    "Dave Robicheaux - Better than ever!!!!!"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Creole Belle to be better than the print version?

    YES! Will Patton is Dave & Clete!!!!


    What does Will Patton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Emotion, dialect, suspense.


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to every Dave Robicheaux book and this is the best so far and that’s saying something! I listen to & from work and I found myself sitting in my car as I could not tear myself away! The story was complex and exciting. Several threads all lead to an exciting end! Will Patton IS Dave Robicheaux ! Will Patton brings Dave Robicheaux & Clete to life! I had read all the books but when I heard the 1st audio book I listened to them all from beginning to end and relived them all differently. He mesmorizes you. I will look for more books read by him.
