Louisiana Bigshot (Talba Wallis Mysteries Book 2) by Julie Smith is FREE for Kindle today. Ms. Smith is a terrific writer who has two great mystery series set in New Orleans. This is the second book in the Talba Wallis series. Talba is a private investigator by day, and her passion is the poetry she writes and performs as the Baroness Pontalba. She’s an unusual and wonderful character and the plots are good, too. Also, the author lives in and loves New Orleans and her love of the city shines through these books. Recommended.
