By THE SELF-TAUGHT COOK 29 Jul 2012 5

Harley Jean Davidson is a Memphis tour guide who spend most of her time driving conventioneers and tourists to Graceland and Beale Street. Her parents, Yogi and Diva, are old hippies who never quite gave up the flower child lifestyle. When their dog, King (named, of course, for Elvis) is dognapped, they call Harley for help. While searching for King, she finds their elderly neighbor murdered. When Yogi and Diva go missing, the police leap to the conclusion that Yogi must be guilty. Harley makes it her mission to find her parents before the police do.

Any novel that is set in Memphis, has a protagonist named after the iconic motorcycle, features the Peabody, Beale Street, and barbecue, has to be good. Add two characters named Yogi and Diva and you know it's going to be a fun read. Because I don't believe in "spoilers", I won't explain this next part, but by the time Harley started carrying a wooden phallus, I knew this was a series I would return to again and again. It has a good plot, entertaining dialogue, offbeat characters, and again, I have to say it, a wooden phallus.

If I could, I would give it more than 5 stars. Thank you, thank you very much....
