I received this through the GoodReads Giveaway.

This is one of the most bizarre books I've read in a while. That's not a bad thing, but it threw me for a loop that I was not expecting. I don't even know how to review this book without giving the storyline away.

Reading the blurb, I went into the story with the expectation that the story was going to head in one direction. Instead it totally went in another unbelievable direction that changed the entire flavor of the tale.

Well Mr Chaunce Stanton. This is not the sort of story book that I would normally ever pick up off a shelf, anywhere. I am a bit of a stick, and I love my crime and historical fiction.

I just finished reading Luano's Luckiest Day" written by Chaunce Stanton. It was extremely well written. The colorful use of the English language enveloped me amongst the characters in that small desert town and afforded me an escape so often sought after in a "good read".It was creative with its usage of imaginative analogies allowing me to visualize the surroundings and sense its aroma. I highly recommend this book, and eagerly anticipate this authors next surprise.
