Oh man, this book is definitely going on the must read again list. I fell in love with this book from jump. Saxon Bennett is such a fascinating author. Her stories are full of amazing characters and substantial story lines and dialogue.

Loved this book!

This book was hysterical! I kept laughing out loud throughout the story. This reminds me in a lot of ways to the humor of Rita Mae Brown. A very well done book! Thank you!

Loved this book.

I really enjoyed this book. The story, the plot and the characters were great. I forgot how good it feels to laugh out loud. A very fun enjoyable read.
