Book Review: Death of The Zanjero: Anne Louise Bannon

Dear reader I just finished reading “Death of the Zanjero” book number one in the “Old Los Angeles” series by Anne Louise Bannon. I picked up this book in soft-cover edition when I went to L.A. times Book Fest in April of this year with my dad.

I met the author of the book at her booth and I picked up and payed for the book because it seemed interesting and I personally love books set within the “Old West time” period. My personal review of the book is as follows:

It was really unique and interesting(in my personal opinion) to see a story set in this time period with a strong realistic female main character who also happens to be a doctor. I loved the way that she stood up for herself, the people around her, and her convictions no matter how much risk she faced in doing so. I also really liked how realistic the characters felt.

I found the mystery to be interesting even though(in my personal opinion) the end of it felt a bit rushed and for lack of a better way of phrasing it “took us back to the start” so to speak as readers(I don’t want to say anything more and risk giving anything away.). Overall I personally rate this book a 7 and half out of 10. Happy reading dear reader 😊.  Please like and share this review if you enjoyed it doing so helps me to get approved by publishers and authors for future books and helps others to find my reviews 💜.
