New York Times bestselling author Sandra Dallas spins a moving, memorable yarn that transports listeners from rural Montana to 1940s Hollywood. Buster Midnight’s Cafe is a compelling story of longtime friends, a shared past, and an act of violence that shatters innocence forever.

May Anna Kovacks was discovered on the dusty streets of Butte, Montana, and went on to become a Hollywood star. War, fame, marriage, love, and heartbreak came and went. What never changed was the bond she shared with her two best friends, Effa Commander and Whippy Bird. When scandal, murder, and betrayal made a legend of May Anna, only Effa and Whippy Bird could set the record straight.

    " This story reminds me of my mother and her best friend who were "flappers" back in the day. How difficult it must have been to send husbands off to war and then to get the news that they were killed in battle. But friendship was the most important thing in those days. "

    " I really like the way this author uses "voice," but I didn't like this story or characters near as much as I liked the Persian Pickle. Not sure I would recommend it. "

    " This book was a 4-star book for me all the way until the last two chapters...then it moved right up to a 5-star. I loved this book, I love Sandra Dallas and I love Effa Commander and Whippy Bird! "

    " Being from Butte made it more fun. Maybe some characters that were in our high school. Good story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rebecca | 1/3/2011

    " I liked Persion Pickle Club so much better that this was disappointing. Now I'm not sure I'll read any more by Sandra Dallas. Anyone have any recommendations of some of her better titles? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathleen | 12/23/2010

    " This was my first Sandra Dallas book and I found it a light, funny , and serious read at times. I'd would enjoy picking up another of her books to take on a car trip or for a vacation read, one eye on the book one on the scenery. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa | 12/18/2010

    " I love the way Sandra Dallas tells a story. Even if they're all similar in some way, I could just keep reading her books. This is another one of my favorites. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeannie | 10/18/2010

    " What can I say. I love the way Sandra Dallas paints a picture in her story telling.
    I did not like this story nearly as much as some of her other books. Somewhat disappointed. "
