Publisher's Summary

Heartbreak. Home. Gunshots.

  • Former small-town girl turned big-city lawyer Lilly Atkins has tidily checked off her adult to-do list.

    • Prestigious law degree
    • Flourishing career
    • Designer wardrobe
    • Well-bred fiancé

    In a moment of cliché, her list gets whipped out the window. And run over a few times.

    So she heads home to Brooks. Where the creek is cool and the gossip is always hot.

    Lilly sets up shop to work off her broken heart. Before the paint can dry, her former flame, Dr. Cash Stetson, shows up requesting representation for his divorce. Two new clients involve a possible negligent homicide and the desecration of human remains, both cases stemming from the local hospital. Run by Cash. When her not so unrequited love's wife turns up dead, Lilly begins to wonder if the former bad boy is up to no good.

    "A light, mostly humorous mystery"

    Lilly Atkins left small town Brooks, Oklahoma to be a big city lawyer in Dallas, and was quite successful at--until everything came crashing down with the discovery of her fiancé in their shared bed with his secretary. Now she's home in Brooks, setting up a local law practice.

    She knows she's got trouble when her high school on-and-off boyfriend walks in the door, wanting her to handle his divorce. She just doesn't know how much trouble.

    Lilly Atkins and her female family and friends take the duties and responsibilities of Southern womanhood very seriously, and that means some entertaining petty revenge when the husband of one of their number is caught cheating on her. It's a bit less clear what it means when Lilly's former boyfriend, now a doctor and running the local hospital, in addition to wanting a divorce, may also be engaged in organ smuggling.

    The overall tone of this is light and humorous, and yet it really is, in part, about organ smuggling. That created a certain dissonance for me, that I wasn't happy about. Of course, it's also about small town closeness, the importance of family and friends, and remembering where you came from, and the light humor is far more appropriate for that.

    I do rather like Lilly.

    Enjoyable, if you're only looking for a light distraction sort of read.

    I bought this audiobook.

    "Funny"

    I really liked the dry sense of humor....I lived in OK a lifetime ago. They are like this. I wish the narrator had been a little better. Her accent was great, she hit the humor....but, a little more emotion would have made it better. Looking forward to the second book.

    "Missed the humor"

    I am always leery of author's who do their own narration. I should have listen to my instincts. I missed the humor that the other reviewers indicated, and that was my main reason for listening.

    Story
    "Must listen (or read)"

    I listened to Home Is Where Your Boots Are during a road trip. I am a small town born and raised southerner who now lives in a city. My drive was a trip back home and this story had me giggling in the car. The characters are relatable for those with a similar background yet charismatic enough to entertain those with different roots. The plot is a mystery filled with romance and many pages of humor. The characters and personalities are vivid. Can't wait for a movie one day! The author and narrator grew into the characters as she read with each becoming more distinct throughout the reading. I look forward to the sequel which is already downloaded and ready for my next trip.

    "Pleasantly Surprised!"
    Any additional comments?

    I was pleasantly surprised by "Home is Where Your Boots Are." I listened to it on my drive to and from work everyday and really enjoyed it. The book kept me on my toes and actually got me excited to get in the car each day (which, if you know me, you know I loathe driving). Aside from being a talented author, I believe Kalan has a real knack for narration! Her different voices and accents kept me entertained and really helped to bring the story to life. You won't regret purchasing this book!
