Cottonmouths by Kelly J. Ford

You know that feeling when you see a book that you KNOW is the one for you?

This is one of those books for me. I saw it many months appear on GR and kept stalking waiting for it. I had really high hopes for it. Then I got denied for it. I whined to everyone that would listen without telling me to shut up with my first world problems. Okay, so I whined to the ones that told me that also.
Then finally I threw all the craps to the wind and resorted to a different avenue.

Not only for myself but for one of my besties since she had a birthday coming. I have zero shames. She and that boar will cut someone in their sleep.

I need to shut up rambling because now the police are looking for me to serve that restraining order.

Emily has returned home to the small town of Drear’s Bluff. She and her Christian Values mother aren’t telling the story of how Emily dropped out of college after failing a few classes. That would not look good in the town of “let me one up you’s”..something else that wouldn’t go over real good in that town is Emily’s yearnings for her former best friend Jody.

But guess who else is back in town? Jody is back and has a baby attached to her hip. She has way more going on than Emily bargained for. Including that little meth den in the chicken house.

Now ask yourself before you get all judgy on some meth stuff…have you ever really yearned for something so badly that nothing else in your whole life could enter into the picture. Image taking that and putting it into some of the most spare, beautiful words that you have held in your hands in years.
That’s this book.

Booksource: I received a copy of this book from the publisher. They didn’t ask for anything because I think they were busy on the phone with the cops. We won’t go into further comments because this could be evidence. I still loved this book.

Seven Days of Us by Francesa Hornak

Seven Days of Us by Francesca Hornak

It’s Christmas..that happiest time of year. When your family gets together to spread the joy and love!

The family in this book is no different than the rest of us.

They all are going to Weyfield Hall, their falling down aging country home. They will be quarantined there for seven days.
With each other.
And each of them has secrets.

The youngest daughter, Phoebe. She has just gotten engaged and is the favorite child.

Other daughter, Olivia. Who is the cause of the quarantine. She took herself off to Africa to help fight a deadly disease called Haag. I have her cast in my head perfectly….

Mom Emma, who has a secret she won’t let out until after Christmas because she wants the family all together and not fighting. Good luck with that.
Andrew the father, is a former war correspondent turned snooty food critic.

This was a really decent book. It’s not filled with twisty turny stuff and it’s not needed. I can only imagine buying this near Christmas and curling up in front of the Christmas tree with it for a good time with a family like this one. Because I love ‘looking in windows’ at other people’s family drama. I always hope that they are as bat-shit crazy as my family is.

Booksource?: I received a copy of this book from the publisher. How cool is that? They didn’t ask me for any thing but as soon as I find a big enough box I’m gonna send them a certain family member of mine. I’m a giver.
