The Complete Santa Fe Bucket List Book has been getting several reviews lately including:
NEW MEXICO MAGAZINE (November 2016) — "Director of the Santa Fe Public Libraries, Hodapp clicks through laundry list of ways to live like a local, including the obligatory stops at museums and popular restaurants. Along the way, she also drops readers into places with WPA-era art, contemporary statues, and historical markers, like Billy the Kid's brief incarceration near the Plaza."
ALBUQUERQUE JOURNAL (June 12, 2016) — "a personal and universal compendium of things to see and do in the City Different before you die."
ALBUQUERQUE JOURNAL (June 10, 2016 — "when you reach the point in life when there are fewer years in your future than there are in your past, the concept of a bucket list becomes increasingly intriguing."
THE SOUTHSIDER (Spring 2016) — "a must-have book on Santa Fe. You will delight in her choices . . . Reading this book will give you an appreciation for the many cultural pleasures of all sorts that our city has to offer and that we often take for granted. This little gem of a book … is warmly endorsed and recommended by author Anne Hillerman."
SANTA FE NEW MEXICAN (June 10, 2016) — "This is a love letter to Santa Fe."
FRIENDS (June 2016) — "Very much in the travel genre popularized in the early 2000s featuring must-do experiences and must-see locations for a lifetime."

This gem of a book offers unique and valuable suggestions for visitors and locals, things to see and do for all ages, in all price ranges, throughout our fascinating ancient city. Her recommendations include places to eat – one of my personal favorite ways to explore any city.
