WOW... Just goes to show you that you can't judge a book by its cover (or title).

I have have had this book on my TBR list for quite awhile and for some reason couldn't make the decision to purchase and read it. That is until some good friends told me it was a great story. It pulled on all my emotions: Happy (laughed out loud at times), Sad (tears were running down my face), Anger (just wanted to scream), Frustration (OMG, just figure it out Bear). If a book can do that to me it's a 5 star read.

The story was well written and the all the characters work well together and all add to the story line. The Kid is hilarious, Bear and Otter are so right for each other. Anna, Creed, and Mrs. Paquinn what a supporting bunch of folks. The mother, well I can't use the language that comes to mind to describe her so I will just tell you if I could have reached into the book and strangled her I would have.

TJ Klune has a wonderful book here. The writing style is well done, The narration is terrific, the characters all add to the plot and stand on their own. Well done, well done!

I absolutely loved this book. I am anxiously waiting the sequel that will be released next week.

The plan was to get up and read while the hubby's mom slept, but work and GR has distracted me from that plan.
