Hurricanes in Paradise by Denise Hildreth Reivew

Hurricanes in ParadiseHurricanes in Paradise by Denise Hildreth

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hurricanes in Paradise by Denise Hildreth is a story filled with honesty and inspiration. Though it takes place in place in the Bahamas & is technically not a southern tale it is filled with southern women. A sad but heartwarming story where four southern women meet and come together to share each of their stories.

Though this book is classified as southern fiction and does have some prayers in it, I found it was not overdone like most.

Though there was sometimes quite a bit of drama pertaining to the four women and their stories this was an enjoyable read. Not only is this a heartwarming, touching read it also has its laugh out loud moments. I quite enjoyed this book & would certainly read another of Denise Hildreth's books in the future.

I received a copy of this book in return for an honest review.

The Electric Barracuda by Tim Dorsey Review

Electric BarracudaElectric Barracuda by Tim Dorsey

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Electric Barracuda is a rip roaring ride! You'll be riding along in the Barracuda with quirky serial killer Serge Storms & his stoner friend Coleman. They're on the uproarious run through Florida from law enforcement, a mystery man & the Doberman, who reminds you of a very clumsy Dog the Bounty Hunter.

Not only will you go on the run with them through the Everglades while laughing out loud, you'll learn a little history of Florida as well! Like Al Capone's hideout.

Though you would think you couldn't come to like a serial killer I certainly did! Not only because of his quirky antics, but he's not your typical serial killer! He runs across most unlikable people who, ironically, are out to harm others.

This was a fast paced, laugh out loud, entertaining read. This is the first book I've ever read of Dorsey's & I can't wait to pick up the previous books in this series! Speaking of which...I found you don't have to have read the previous books to easily follow along with Dorsey's latest! I highly recommend this book & it has easily made it onto my list of favorite quick/entertaining reads!
