    "This was a great read. I loved the overall theme of the book, it seemed to borrow heavily form Navajo philosophy. The author did a great job of weaving the Navajo's philosophy of keeping peace in life, making your priorities into your way of life and living by it, all the while resisting the ever so present temptation to turn to greed.

    "When I studied history, my favorite aspect of the study was that of the native american people. As a fan of mystery books, I'm always on the look out for mystery books featuring native americans. With Corpus Christmas, I felt that this was a decent mystery story, but it did not take advantage of the breadth of the native american culture in the story. "

    "Was looking for a Native American mystery tale and came across this. It was not was I was looking for. This is an addition to Peter Pan and did have mystery involved but wasn't the right setting for what I was thinking I wanted more of a period fiction style book than a fairytale mystery."

    "I just finished this book for the second time, and I enjoyed the read better than the first one. I've long been an enthusiast of 1930s crime books and articles and have read almost everything I could find on Bonnie and Clyde. There are several books about the couple: many of them simply rehash what's been said time and time again; a couple written by B&C family members are obviously biased toward the two criminals, sometimes outright lying; a few, however are excellent, offering new information gained from primary research and a fresh perspective. Guinn's book tops them all. His research is meticulous, and he leaves very few questions unanswered--if any."

    " the Nature Girl's character reminds me of the lead in the film Raising Arizona (Holly Hunter's character) just trying to get by in a world that ain't fair and where people have no manners. Honey Santana just wants the world to be a little more polite. My only issue was the reading by Lee Adams. That didn't last. She's a gem and her characterizations were incredible, real and fun."

    "G.K. Chesterton's novel portrays a thrilling take of 7 anarchists set in the turbulent and ever-changing times of the turn of the century. With each anarchist naming themselves a day of the week, part of the thrill in reading this book is identifying each day's personality, in particular figuring out who the title character Thursday is like. While a bit slow paced in parts, the mystery behind this story keeps the psychological thrill ride going."

    "What do an annoying heroine and a loosely veiled mystery lead to? I book that is not really worth much. I try to look objectively at each book I read and I know the author put a lot of effort into writing this one. The effort was misguided, however. I had trouble connecting or empathizing with the main character that I didn’t like. When I was halfway through the book I pretty much had the mystery solved. As a fan of the genre, I am going to keep looking for a better book. "
