I can't recommend this author strongly enough. Try her work, you will enjoy it.
I enjoyed this book. However there were many gramatical & spelling errors. If you can get past that, it's got a good storyline that will keep you reading.
These were good enough to finish without much trouble but I got tired of the high school type attitudes every character had except Mamaw. Every argument in the book reminded me of my high school aged granddaughter arguing with her boyfriend and it got tiresome.
Read the other two books in the series and enjoyed them this one was an odd story
