Bubba, The Cowboy Prince
Bubba, The Cowboy Prince - Helen Ketteman,James Warhola

If I could give this book more than 5 stars- I would. This is a southern twist on the classic tale "Cinderella". Bubba is a ranch hand on his step fathers farm and the stepfather and 2 evil step brothers torment Bubba to no end. Bubba wants to go to the ball to meet "Miz" Lurleen (who bears a striking resemblance to Dolly Parton) but is not able to thanks to his step family. Bubba is devastated and rides out into the field to tend to the cows when all of a sudden his Fairy God Cow appears to rescue him and make sure that he makes it to that ball. Miz Lurleen and Bubba hit it off but in his rush to get home before midnight he loses his cowboy boot. Miz Lurleen searches the kingdom for the owner of that boot and eventually reunites with bubba and they ride off in the sunset to live happily ever after. This is a wonderful story to use in a fairytale unit. I would have my students create a t chart to compare and contrast the original Cinderella story to this one.

MY REVIEW

 

Tonya Kappes had me laughing from the opening pages of Southern Fried, when  Kenni Lowry is shushing her ghost.

 

Kenni is the Sheriff of the small of Cottonwood and the ghost is her Grandfather. It was no surprise that she carried a gun, but there were those who frowned on her being the Sheriff.

Even though Cottonwood is a small town, the characters are far from being small.

 

The story contains funny quotes and unique characters that will have you smiling and laughing, and shaking your head.

“It’s hotter than a prostitute’s doorknob on pay day in here.”

Murder, the supernatural and humor are the norm in a Tonya Kappes novel.

 

There are plenty of suspects to keep me guessing, with some romance on the side and a lovable hound dog that, even though he’s not a guard dog, acts like one.

 

The small town of Cottonwood is like all small towns. Even with all the personality conflicts and disagreements, the people come together in the end.

 

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of Southern Fried by Tonya Kappes.

Southern Fried Blues
Southern Fried Blues - Jamie Farrell I loved this book so much that I didn't want it to end. Anna and Jackson are both adorable. A perfect Southern gentleman and a Yankee, they made me laugh-out-loud many times. Both are intelligent and trying to make the best of life. They're not ready to accept their love for each other but also not ready to let go...
This book is a whole package, a real treat for contemporary romance readers. I found it quite entertaining and hope that others do too. :)

Southern Fried Wiccan
Southern Fried Wiccan - S.P. Sipal I gave this book one star because I couldn't give it zero. It was just bad. There is not a single thing I enjoyed about it. Nothing.
Cilla is a brat. She is shallow and spoiled.
Everything about this book is a stereotype. Cilla makes a point of labeling people upon meeting them. The actual story of a city girl moving to a small town is cliche. The mean girl being friends with the new girl is cliche. How they portrayed Wiccans as a bunch of women finding their inner goddess in the woods and rejecting the rest of society is cliche.
So why did I finish it, you ask. Because it was 160 pages, and I refuse to let a book less than 200 pages defeat me.
That said, perhaps I should've forfeited on this one.
Netgalley is going to hear about this.

Southern Fried is southern fun!
Southern Fried - Rob Rosen

It's been awhile since I read this book and when I stumbled across it again, I realized I hadn't written a review and I felt that was a shame because I loved this book.

Rob Rosen has written a book that is a bit of a mystery with some romance and steamy sex thrown in and a huge truckload of humor. If I remember nothing else about his book I remember that I laughed my ass off.

From the moment he returns home Trip Jackson is thrown into a mystery that he's going to need more than a little help to unravel and just when he thinks it's all figured out, there's more. Following Trip and his ragtag collection of friends was an adventure of the most entertaining sort.

If you're looking for a book that will leave you smiling or more probably laughing check out Southern Fried. It's southern hospitality at it's wackiest best!
