Today I am sharing my review from June this year for The Ballad of Mrs. Molony (The Hat Book 3) by C.S. Boyack
About the book
Lizzie and the hat are back, and this time they’re chasing vampires across a subculture of America. A pair of rodeo cowboys are holding a woman captive to use like a milk cow since they joined the undead.
The person who put them onto the trail is also a vampire, but he has to be the worst vampire in history. Is he really that pitiful, or is he setting a trap for our heroes? Does the woman even exists? Can Lizzie and the hat find her before she also takes up blood sucking?
Follow Lizzie and the hat as they use their cover band to stalk vamps across the country music scene.
My review for the book June 21st 2021
I have been looking forward to the third book in The Hat series and I was not disappointed. Non-stop action from first to last page and although a short read, it is packed with great writing.
Lizzie, The Hat and the band play some interesting new venues for their gigs, and whilst money is key, finding a missing woman is Lizzie’s priority. They meet some pretty unsavoury characters along the way, and have to keep their eyes peeled for those who have more than a good music and a dance in mind.
Thankfully the versatile Hat uses his enhanced powers to assist the investigation, that is when you can get him away from his online shopping. Thankfully the crime fighting duo are not deterred by the challenges thrown at them, and the author creates some wonderful escapades along the way for them to get their teeth into…
Whilst this is about vampires and things that go bang in the night, it is not macabre and there is a wonderful wry humour running through the narrative.
The characters of Lizzie and the Hat have developed over the books to become a finely honed partnership. With their daring and banter they are gaining a reputation…Batman and Robin with a touch of Laurel and Hardy!
Escapist fantasy at its best.. Try on The Hat and give it a whirl…recommended.
A selection of other books by C.S. Boyack
I was born in a town called Elko, Nevada. I like to tell everyone I was born in a small town in the 1940s. I’m not quite that old, but Elko has always been a little behind the times. This gives me a unique perspective of earlier times, and other ways of getting by. Some of this bleeds through into my fiction.
I moved to Idaho right after the turn of the century, and never looked back. My writing career was born here, with access to other writers and critique groups I jumped in with both feet.
I like to write about things that have something unusual. My works are in the realm of science fiction, paranormal, and fantasy. The goal is to entertain you for a few hours. I hope you enjoy the ride.
Thanks for dropping in and I hope you have enjoyed the review for Craig’s terrific book.. thanks Sally.
