An Allie Armington Mystery. Anacacho: An Allie Armington Mysteryby Louise Gaylord. This is a work of fiction. Names, characters, places and incidents either are the product of the author’s imagination or are used fictitiously, and any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, business establishments, events or locales is entirely coincidental.

I park the Anacacho station wagon next to Paul’s Mercedes, enter the dark entry hall and stop to listen. Nothing suppress a scream. The paintings are gone, the furniture too. I hurry to the wall. It’s exactly as it was the first time I visited Anacacho: bare, smooth, and cool to the touch, except that mangled picture hooks give evidence of a hurried removal

Hurus
The Allie Armington Mystery Series has become a new favorite of mine! I absolutely loved this series. And this first book, Anachacho, grabbed me from the very first paragraph, which is unusual for me.

The phone rings and suddenly 7 years fade away. The voice at the end of the line belongs to Reena Carpenter, ex-best friend of Allie Armington. Reena Carpenter: Gorgeous Farah Fawcett look-alike who, years before, trapped Allie's boyfriend into marrying her instead.

Reena has turned to Allie, an Assistant D.A. for Harris County, Texas, for help. Reena invites her to return with her by jet to her husband's family home -Anacacho Ranch. But how can Allie help someone who has betrayed her trust in so many ways? And how will she feel once she sees her former boyfriend who is now the husband of Reena? (Now I know that this probably sounds like a "soap opera.") It isn't. Instead you'll find a fast-paced mystery that will leave you guessing until the very end. You just NEVER see it coming!

Anachacho is filled with murder and anticipation that compels you to turn each page quickly. It transports the reader into the drug cartel's world of wealth and suspicion.

I also loved the descriptive characterizations of Louise Gaylord: Not "aviator sunglasses," but "fly-boy sunglasses!" What a difference!

But most of all, Ms. Gaylord makes Allie Armington totally come to life. This is not a "romantic mystery," - although certainly it has romance. However, it is so much more than the usual books that are full of fluff. It totally grabs you and only releases you once the last page is turned. And even then, I'm not sure that it does release the reader. Because I found myself instantly reaching for the next book in the series - Xs and very grateful that there was another book. Great writing!

See previous review. This is also in my pile of books to be read.

For some reason, this mystery has been sitting on my shelf, but once I started reading, I couldn't put it down. As other reviewers have mentioned, the plot is full of surprises. One quick note: first time in a novel the author showed us what it is like to have a concussion, and lose memory around it. Not sure if hypnosis would actually be able to help the person remember, as a concussion with a subdural hematoma is a serious injury, but within the context of the novel, we can suspend disbelief and go with it. Gaylord kept me guessing right up to the end. Time to buy the next Allie Armington myster. I've found me new mystery series.

The joys of finding a new author that you enjoy! I was contacted by Little Moose Press asking if I'd like to review a book by Louise Gaylord. They also offered to send the first two novels in the series so I could get up to speed. That's how I found myself carting Anacacho: An Allie Armington Mystery down to Orlando on vacation. I wasn't expecting much more than some mild entertainment, but I quickly got hooked on the characters and story. Needless to say, her next two novels moved up on my "next to read" list. Gaylord is a talented writer who has done a very nice job with Anacacho.

Allie Armington is an assistant district attorney in Texas who is getting rather frustrated with her job of working with grand juries. Her upstairs neighbor (and hopeful lover) Duncan encourages her to join a private firm, which works out very well for her. But her peaceful, comfortable existence suffers a setback when she gets a call from an old college roommate by the name of Reena Carpenter. Reena is a beautiful woman who stole Allie's fiancee Paul away from her. She also dumped the guy who is now the husband of their third roommate, Susie Baxter. Allie's not sure what or why Reena wants to get together for lunch, but decides to bury her pain and go through with it. Reena's husband has made a fortune in oil, and also seems to be seeing someone else on the side. Reena is convinced that he's about to divorce her and leave her penniless. She begs and pleads for Allie to come visit her at the Anacacho ranch and help her work things out. Allie's not sure she wants to be in close proximity to her ex-fiancee, and *really* regrets the idea when he starts confessing his true love for her and tries to make a move on her. Allie feels like Reena is setting her up for something, but doesn't get a chance to find out exactly what it is as Reena is found dead at the same hideaway where Paul tried to seduce Allie. The physical clues to the killing are non-existent, but there's no lack of suspects... Paul, Susie and her husband (who work for Paul and have a dispute over the land), or some rather unsavory characters who help manage the ranch (but who have rather murky backgrounds).

When I first started reading Anacacho, I thought it was going to be an OK read. But within about 50 pages, I realized that I was going to end up a bit sleep-deprived the next day. Allie's character is a lot of fun. She's got her flaws like everyone else, but she's willing to take risks to uncover truth and fulfill commitments to her friends. I'm really fortunate that the publisher sent the first two novels in the series, as I now have a solid background as to what makes Allie tick. I'm looking forward to the next two in the series, and I'll be keeping an eye open for any additional installments after that.
