ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — New books by two female Santa Fe authors – one nonfiction, the other a mystery novel – share a strong quality: The authors make the reader feel very much part of the extended family in each book.
That is true for Katie Arnold’s unforgettable memoir, “Running Home.” (Reviewed here March 24.)
And it is true for Anne Hillerman’s fifth and latest police procedural, “The Tale Teller – A Leaphorn, Chee & Manuelito Novel.”
