Hi, I have never read any books in this series before, but this one sounds interesting. Is this the type of series that you need to read the previous books to know the characters, etc., or can I start right in with this one? Thanks very much, Kim

Gillycat I have just finished this and it is the first i have read. It is fine as a stand alone and has made me want to read from the beginning
Meg I would read them in order. The family and community relationships change and develop as the series unfolds.
Virginia Runyon I think you can enjoy this one without having read the rest, or any, of the series. I have read most of the series so it is hard for me to tell exactly how it would be without that background. It seem to me she fills the reader in as necessary.
Ann Wright I've read them mostly in order, but I think author provides enough background that you can read them in any fashion. In fact, I've never read the first one, Bootlegger's Daughter.
