Book Talk Tuesday

A few years ago I did a book review on False Victim (click HERE for the review).  The author, Kathie Truitt, wrote this true, horrifying story of events that happened to her when a neighbor began stalking her and did everything possible to ruin Kathie's life.  Well, through that review, Kathie and I have become blog friends.  She follows my blog and I follow her blog, the Hillbilly Debutante.

Well, Kathie has written another book...this time a work of fiction...The Hillbilly Debutante Cafe.  This story is set in El DoradoSprings, MO and is chock full of quirky townsfolk with some mystery and intrigue thrown in.  The story was fun and easy to read and was a perfect palette cleanser.  There are just times when you need to read something this isn't heavy and dense.  I would love to read more stories with these characters.
Welcome to El Dorado Springs, Missouri, population 3,021. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but it doesn't take long any time at all, really to realize there's much more than meets the eye.

That's how Molly McCarty feels, anyway. After deciding she's had enough of the big-city life as a politician's wife in Washington, Molly moves back to her hometown and buys the abandoned Serenity Farm. Molly acclimates herself to life in a small town with the help of her best friend, Jennifer Papula, who is only too happy to share the town's most recent juicy gossip. For one thing, there's Jerry Ray Turner, the town's best mechanic, who came out of the closet as a cross-dresser. And then there's crazy old Ollie Griffin, still living inside his '69 Thunderbird and occasionally showering in the park's fountain.

But the biggest uproar is Roy Bob Benson, who is trying to buy the old Hacker's Jewelry building and turn it into a 'girly' bar. That's just the beginning of the news, and as Molly tries to help the newly formed revitalization committee think of a way to stop Roy Bob, a vandal threatens the town's sense of security. Who is doing this and why? Full of wit, intrigue, and a cast of memorable characters, The Hillbilly Debutante Café is sure to keep you coming back time and time again!
