As an adopted southerner (born in the north, lived most of my life in the south), this book is just full of cliches and no substance. The southern characters here are what someone from outside of the region thinks they might be. It is just so obvious that the writer is not a southerner, and her attempts to add the right flavor to the novel fail more often than not.
Maybe. If I didn't have to pay directly out of pocket for it (i.e. local library)
The narrator was excellent. I have no problem with her at all. She did the best she could with what she had, but I wouldn't claim any of the characters as favorites.
All of them or none of them. It doesn't matter because I won't be listening to the sequels.
I bought this through the recent get started on a series sale, and the sample made it seem fun. I realize we all like fluff stories now and again and that not everything we read has to be "deep." This story was just not that good. The characters were such 2-dimensional cut-outs that it was not to be believed.
Cassandra Campbell did an excellent job narrating this book. Nice clean reading! Can't wait until I read the next book,
