Cool Anyone else a Tami Hoag fan?

Topic, really.

While admittedly, I've only read two of her books (Dark Horse and A Thin Dark Line) I'm definately planning on reading the rest!

With my backlog (which could generously be described as 'extensive'), I clearly made a really, really good decision picking up that Barnes and Noble membership... -- they've introduced what are (for now) two of my favorite characters: Elena Estes (the dark horse of, erm, Dark Horse :P) and Antoinette ("Annie") Broussard.

Fair warning: Ms. Hoag has this little predilection for springing endings on the reader literally from out of nowhere, so... if you think you know who's really guilty at some point, trust me: "It ain't over 'till it's over."

I've never fancied them. I find myself put off by her surname ...

Default Im obviously missing something here...

...because I'm not following you. What does a coincidental surname short story first published three years (ok, two years and about three months) prior to Tami Hoag's birth have to do with her?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but... isn't this the kind of thing that's supposed to be covered by the "This is a work of fiction..." disclaimer found in most fiction these days?

I'm not exactly a fan, but I've enjoyed the three or four books of hers that I've read. It's been a while and my TBR pile is so high, I've not added any more of her books to it.
