Payback in Wayback, by Lynda Coker, starts with a vivid picture of Corey, a man betrayed by fate and by falling in love. Of course, falling in love with "the Devil's daughter," even if a very human devil, could never be a very good idea. Still, by the end of the first chapter, the reader knows enough to wish they knew more, and to feel the ache of tears behind the music of "love gone bad."
It's time for payback in Wayback, Texas, but who will pay whom, and how? There are broken relationships, and relationships wrong-footed from the start. And there's a shining hope that keeps the story going.
The author has a delightful way of portraying her characters' feelings in simple details, hands clasped too tight, legs left limp after sitting under too much stress, the sensual eating of familiar food. And then there are the details of secrets whose surprises brand this tale with a delightful conclusion.
Wrong assumptions, anger and regret all give way under laughter and innocence. The story ends like a song drawn out to its beautiful final notes; a really fun lunch-time read, or a bedtime story for weary moms, with just the right amount of pathos, romance and mystery.
