    One thought on “The Katydid Effect”

    1. A e-copy of the novel was provided to me by the author in exchange for an honest review.This is the third of Edward’s books that I am reading, and I must admit that I am getting addicted to his writing. It is so enticing and fluent, I just can’t seem to be able to walk away from the computer once I get started. As I said before, Edward has a way with words. His writing is not seamless, nor very strong, yet it has an appeal that just keeps me glued to the pages. It is melodious, elegant, main [...]

    2. This is book 2 of "The Throckmorten Family Novels". It opens up at the end of Alex and Annie's honeymoon road trip toward her new home on Alex's horse farm in Chumuckla, Florida. They drove down "In A Cream Colored Packard" from Appleton, Wisconsin (Annie's hometown).I think Annie is a wonderful wife for accepting one giant surprise after another, as well as participating in finding the truth of the Throckmorten's family secrets!! In the 2nd book, Alex and Annie meet Nicolas (his father) and fam [...]

    3. The Katydid Effect by Edward Hackemer is an absolute joy to read! He made my memory tingle with his very descriptive sights and sounds of the late 1950's to early 1960's. This is the second book in the Throckmorton Family series. It continues the storyline begun in: In A Cream Packard. In 1955 Alex and Annie are raising horses on their farm near Pensacola, Florida. Alex, reunited with the "Old Man" he thought was dead since 1946; and Annie, are getting to know his Dad. Five years later in Januar [...]

    4. I have really enjoyed this whole series, reading 3-5, then 1 and 2. I don't buy many books but had to this time; I was hooked! This book followed Alex and Annie in the years after their whirlwind wedding. As with his other books, Mr Hackemer shows great historical knowledge and enables the reader to experience the decade along with the characters. There is a real genuineness to his books and I look forward to more from this author.

    5. I loved this book. The only problem was the book ended too soon. I hope the author writes another update novel on the Throckmorton clan. The characters are real, warm and interesting. I want to know what happens next with them.

    6. The book wasn't that good. The charters are not the best and some words are repeated to often. Although, I really enjoyed how Edward Hackemer writes a setting. you can see it in your head. I got a chance to read this book through Good Reads First Reads.

    7. The story was good but there's a ton of irrelevant detail in the book that distracts from the story. The car (Packard) is treated almost like a character. The writing can be stiff and awkward. However, I finished the book fairly rapidly and was interested in it.

    8. Not as much romance as I would have liked, but all together it was a very good story. It had more drama than In a Cream Packard and somee interesting twists in the family jar of surprises! A nice summertime read.

    9. The Katydid Effect by Edward Hackemer is an absolutely delightful read. This is the second book in the "Throckmorton Family Novels". It continues the story begun with: In A Cream Colored Packard. It's 1955 and Alex and Annie are living on their horse farm near Pensacola, Florida raising horses. Alex has just been reunited with his father, Nick, whom he thought had died in 1946 in WW II. There is definitely a mystery to this storyline!! Then five years later, in January of 1960, their lives are i [...]

    10. This story continues from the first book "A Cream Packard" Alex mets his father, who he thought was dead from the war. He also finds out he has twin daughters, that will live with he and Anne. His father knows a lot more than Alex Jr. thinks. The conclusion will be in the next book " A Bridge to Cross" I loved the story with all it's twists and turns. I recieved this FREE book from the author for my honest review.

    11. asks the author to submit a review of their work, so here it is: "Of course, it's a biased review. I wrote it then read it. Lots of times."This is book #2 of the Throckmorton Family Novels. Alex and Annie's lives are turned on edge as surprises and secrets of the past are revealed.
