To Leave a Memory

Kirkus Reviews​

"A warm portrait of a family coming together to forgive... the colorful dialogue keeps the story moving... There's a pleasing amount of healthy talk about sex... Forgiveness comes in moments sentimental but tender, and even Andrew's post-stroke syntax has a chance to shine."

Out and In: a mystery-thriller

Lone Star Literary Life

"The well-written tale starts quickly and with a bang ... Evans has a fine ear for entertaining dialogue, and the use of short chapters helps her mystery-thriller keep moving briskly, even though the plot includes several side angles."

Ruthie Jones "Reading By Moonlight" Blog

Out and In hits the ground at a full gallop, brimming with murder, gossip, self-centered and entitled characters, and more than enough drama to go around...The overall plot is definitely unique and filled with rabbit holes and wrong turns, but the author's storytelling keeps everything in focus as Marie struggles to make it through her murder trial intact (talk about drama!) and then struggles to determine who set her up and why.

...The pace is brisk, punctuated by Terrance Nichols's column, "Out and In," that...provides a heavy dose of juicy gossip and speculation that keeps the reader turning the pages to find out just exactly who murdered the notoriously promiscuous Maestro.

...Out and In is a tangled web of secrets that is incredibly fun to unravel. When the full details of greed, corruption, and murder are eventually thrown in your face, you can only laugh at the clever yet raunchy audacity of it all.

Clueless Gent Book Blog

Out and In combines a highly unique set of elements into an engaging story! We have some ex-pro football players, a clique of snobby, rich women who control the Dallas opera scene, a murdered maestro, a gay bar, a major investment fail, and a sleazy columnist who publicizes all of it!
... Pat Dunlap Evans nicely puts all of them together into a tale that remains mysterious until the very end.
If you've ever wondered how the other half lives, this may be the book for you. And after reading it, you'll probably be glad that you're not one of them.
...Overall, I enjoyed this story.  It certainly kept me engaged throughout.  The author did a great job of connecting all the pieces ... I do recommend that you give this story a go - it's very original!
