Out of character

So sue me. I like Randy Wayne White’s books. I just finished the second book in his new series, Deceived.  It is interesting to see Doc Ford, the hero of the original series, through the eyes of Hannah Smith. She hasn’t quite figured out yet that Ford is anything more than a mild-mannered biologist. Maybe she will in the next book.

I like the fact that Hannah calls Doc by his real name, Marion. I suppose that is White’s homage to another manly man, John Wayne. Come to think of it, I wonder if that is the origin of White’s own middle name. 

Anyway, it will be interesting to see how the romance of Marion and Hannah proceeds.
