Yes I have read quite a few of them. She has 4 different series. I like the Skip Langdon one the best. her first book in that series New Orleans Morning is excellent.

Give her a try.

I recently picked up New Orleans Mournign on CD at the FOL sale rack.  Haven't listened to it yet. Good to know that it's well good.

I have a few of her books on my TBR shelf that I just haven't gotten to yet.

Death Turns a Trick (Rebecca Schwartz, Bk 1) :: Julie Smith
ISBN-13: 9780804108560 - ISBN-10: 0804108560

Rebecca Schwartz is a fairly normal Bay-area attorney. But when she almost gets busted for playing piano in a bordello, and Kandi, a part-time student-prostitute is killed in her home, and then the killer stalks Rebecca, it's time to take action--which is just what she does....

The Sourdough Wars (Rebecca Schwartz, Bk 2) :: Julie Smith
ISBN-13: 9780804109291 - ISBN-10: 080410929X

Thanks to front-page coverage in the San Francisco Chronicle, everyone knows about the upcoming auction of the Martinelli family?s renowned sourdough starter. No one anticipates the outcome: the auction will never take place, because handsome Peter Martinelli, owner of the recipe, is brutally murdered.

No more did attorney Rebecca Schwartz expect to find herself engaged in a hair- raising variety of unlawful and dangerous deeds, inspired by her reckless determination to find out whether Peter really died for a handful of dough. The more she sifts through the tangled relationships of the city?s bread-making dynasties, the more Rebecca is certain that this is no simple affair. Love, hate, revenge, and pride are all ingredients in a dazzling mystery that only Julie Smith could have written--a puzzle that challenges the heart as much as it does the mind.
