Dizzy In Durango: An Andy Veracruz Mystery #3 by D. R. Ransdell

DizzyI met this author a couple of years ago at the Tucson Festival of Books – her smile pulled me to the booth, but her main character, Andy keeps me coming back for more reads.

It’s been a while since I read a book in one day.  Yesterday was a rare day off for me, and since the main character likes to swim, I took this book to Barton Springs here in Austin.  Thank goodness it was hot out or I would have just sat and read and forgot to get in the pool!

Andy’s world is always unusual.  In this book a mystery woman has asked him to watch her purse – she never comes back for it.  Instead of turning it in to lost and found, like I would have done, he goes looking for the owner – the rest is a roller coaster of antics.  Rachel is back from a previous book, and Andy’s romance is also taking a turbulent turn.  The musical references are there, and this author has the ability to help me “hear” what the music is.  Of course Andy’s ear for mistakes is much more refined than my tone-deaf one!

Oh, and the author put a bookmark for Book 4 in this copy, and it’s already out – I believe I have my next read!

Check out the entire series HERE.


After a fellow traveler disappears, Andy can’t concentrate on vacationing. Worse, he’s saddled with two children who aren’t his, an angry would-be girlfriend, and a self-appointed younger brother who is more reckless than he is. No wonder he starts seeing double.
