What a wonderful book!
I loved “The Cicada Funeral.” What a wonderful book. The characters are so real and the story is exciting. The setting is very familiar to this life-long Texan. My husband, Buck, and I both enjoyed it. I picked it up to be sure I was spelling cicada correctly; the next thing I knew I was reading the book again! Thank you for a good read. When is your next book coming out?

My favorite author.
I thought this book was an absolute GEM! The Cicada Funeral is about family, money, greed, and mystery, but most of all, it’s about love and believing in the one true love of a life time and never giving up hope. The Cicada Funeral has it all! Alene is an excellent writer and her story gives one hope that all is not lost, that love always wins in the end. She is and will always be my favorite author.

A joy to read!
It’s a joy to read the work of such a brilliant writer. Alene’s books are amazingly intelligent and fast paced, yet thought provoking–so emotionally stirring that, from cover to cover my heart beats in slow motion. Her work has endeared her to me forever.

They brighten and broaden my life.
Alene Roberts books are superior! They brighten and broaden my life. My nine daughters, three daughters-in-law and many others hereabouts wait anxiously for the next.

I will always treasure it.
Alene Roberts is a wonderful author. I’ve just finished The Cicada Funeral. I really enjoyed the mystery and suspense in her story. Alene does a masterful job of luring you into the lives of her characters. Before you know it the book is finished and you are left wondering how the time passed so quickly. The Cicada Funeral is a book I will always treasure and I look forward to passing it on to my daughters.
