    1. Sara Sue Hoklotubbe is the author of the Sadie Walela Mystery Series and winner of the New Mexico Arizona Book Award for Mystery Suspense, winner of the WILLA Literary Award by Women Writing the West, and winner of Mystery of the Year by Wordcraft Circle of Native Writers and Storytellers She was also a finalist for the ForeWord Book of the Year Award and the Oklahoma Book Award She may be reached through her website at hoklotubbe

    2. If you do a search for "Native American mystery writers" you will be hard pressed to find Native American authors. Hoklotubbe is one of them, and her main character, Sadie Walela, is a young Cherokee woman who works in a bank (as did Hoklotubbe). I appreciate the authenticity of the characters (and the bank robbery!) and I think Hoklotubbe's books would be great for young adults as well as adult readers.

    3. An excellent mystery set against the backdrop of small-town Oklahoma and its Native culture. This is a fun read, beautifully written, and the rural Oklahoma setting within modern-day life for a mixed blood Cherokee woman drew me in.

    4. I wanted to like this book but found it flat. The rural Oklahoma setting doesn't come alive in the writing, and the details of modern-day life for a part-Cherokee woman aren't as interesting as I'd hoped.

    5. This was a good mystery. I really liked the Cherokee information and history that was part of the story.
