Honestly, I’m not even sure where to begin.  It’s no mystery that you can win my heart by giving me a mystery.  Given a choice I’ll always go mystery, it’s just my niche.  However I have other preferred (please, you know I’ll read ‘anything’ except technical manuals people) genres and when you mix any other genre with a mystery it’s going to be right up my alley. Add to that an author that creates characters and setting that embraces you like a best friend and it can’t go wrong!  Henry Lapp suffered an accident as a child that resulted in a savant gift.  That gift, later in life, brought him into the English world in a way most English never get involved with.  After this encounter Lapp and many of his friends chose to relocate from their home to join a fledgling community in Colorado. There was so much to […]
