I am such a fan of Barbara Neely's series that I am afraid I can't consider this an unbiased reviewWe may not be talking serious literature here but we are talking about a very entertaining novel that is well written but also thought provoking For me the strength of the Blanche novels is that they address social issues throughout the book Race and class are not just a sub text they are central to who Blanche is and how she faces the world I have found each of the three books I've read both stimulating and cause for reflection about who we are and how we look at and treat othersI am not 100% sure I would like Blanche working in my home she is a domestic she listens at doors snoops in drawers and asks many probing uestions of the other staff andor service providers to the household But I sure would want Blanche for a friend She is smart loyal and determined There is not a doubt that her good ualities far outweigh her bad ones but I still would prefer her not to be too involved in MY businessIt is uite a gift to be able to entertain and educate at the same time and Barbara Neely does that for me in every book Well done and Viva Blanche
