Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Sandra Dallas spins a moving, memorable yarn that transports listeners from rural Montana to 1940s Hollywood. Buster Midnight’s Cafe is a compelling story of longtime friends, a shared past, and an act of violence that shatters innocence forever.

May Anna Kovacks was discovered on the dustry streets of Butte, Montana and went on to become a Hollywood star. War, fame, marriage, love, and heartbreak came and went. What never changed was the bond she shared with her two best friends, Effa Commander and Whippy Bird. When scandal, murder, and betrayal made a legend of May Anna, only Effa and Whippy Bird could set the record straight.

    "Great listen"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Buster Midnight’s Cafe to be better than the print version?

    All depends on how you spend your time. I can listen and do other things around the house or yard, kill 2 birds with one stone so to speak.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Effa Commander and Whoopie bird. The era in which the book took place is a favorite of mine. I was born in the wrong era. The 40's and 50's would have been a great time to have raised a family.


    Have you listened to any of Cynthia Darlow’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. I will have to give her a try.


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

    Laugh, and feel sad, but not cry


    Any additional comments?

    I have one more book of hers to listen to and then I will have had them all.
