Flat Broke with Two Goats
Flat Broke with Two Goats: A Memoir of Appalachia - Jennifer McGaha

This book is about a family who lived way outside of their means and when the recession hit lost their home. If you want a book with a financial plan on how to deal with the fact that they had a ton of debt and hadn't paid their taxes in years this isn't that book. The author does acknowledge the fact that they messed up, she left all things financial to her husband (I died reading this) and they were living beyond their means. The way that she explains how they got into this situation was really understandable, irresponsible but understandable. After this initial explanation it does turn into a bit of a poor me fest with Jennifer going on a bit of journey of self discovery. To be fair she did have a string of personal loss at the same time they were going through foreclosure. The last chunk of the book goes over the families move into a cabin in the woods, getting chickens and goats and basically the struggles of two non farming people trying to farm. A lot of people took issue with people who were that broke spending as much as they did on farming when they didn't know much about what they were doing. I get it but it didn't bother me.

 

Overall this book was very readable, and I was curious about what was going to happen next but it wasn't the most amazing thing I've ever read. I'd be interested to read more from McGaha to see how I feel about her writing outside of a memoir since I feel like those can, in some cases, be a little hard use as a judgement on rather or not I like an author.

In some ways what Hillbilly Elegy should have been
Flat Broke with Two Goats: A Memoir of Appalachia - Jennifer McGaha

My Book Box selection Jan 2018.

Honesty, I would not have picked up this book on my own, but I am so glad that My Book Box chose it. Funny, brutally, honest, and wonderful. For the record, the back of the book is slightly misleading as Merle is not the first goat.

Mystery at Dead Broke Ranch (Texas Rangers, Men Who Wear the Star Book 1) - Anne Greene

Mystery at Dead Broke Ranch by Anne Greene
Have read other works by the author and have enjoyed the reads.
This one starts out with Ashley, a special ed therapist and she needs a man. She is strong and lives on the ranch with Zach her brother in a wheelchair.
The job is still available: work at the ranch and the man riding up on the motorcycle wants it, Stone Hunter. He's done all kinds of jobs, interesting hearing about them all throughout the book.
She needed him to work because if they didn't have ramps for Zach and other things he'd go back to foster homes. They still have not solved the murder of her grandfather... She just wants a Christian man.
Her twin sisters are moving in and one is to be married at Christmas. Love the work she does with the horses for handicap kids.
Stone just wants to find what he left behind and get out of there...
Past events are brought forward and she recalls why Zach is confined to the chair.
He tells the family the truth then he has to leave and he hopes to clear his past before returning... So many leads and clues as to who killed her grandfather...
There is so much more to learn about the characters and their careers, can't wait to read more about them. Handful of characters but easy to keep them straight.
Lots of action and more mystery and the authors other works are highlighted at the end.
I was given the book by the author via Book Fun (The Book Club Network) and this is my honest review

Can 12 Month Loan Give A Golden Chance to Deal with Financial Woes?

 

Reasons are many why one needs to find the necessary resources for emergency funds. From renovating your kitchen to give it a new look to covering the expenses of your big day; your saving seems insufficient to serve your purposes.  In that case, it is considered an effective solution to derive the funds through the means of loans. What will you do if your pocket is void and you do have a credible credit score?

 

Opportunities Are Available for Bad Credit People

 

When you cannot wait for long to arrange the funds, you should try out to avail a loan. Now you must be confused do you still stand a chance to secure a loan or not? Securing a loan despite bad credit rating always seems to be a tough task. However, the opportunities are still available for you. It is quite obvious that if you borrow funds from the traditional lenders, you might face rejection. In that case, what you can do is to apply for the 12 month loan despite bad credit with no guarantor from the direct lender.

 

Direct Lenders Can Help You When Doors Are Closed

 

Once you got a black mark on your credit record, the options of borrowing funds tend to get limited. When you constantly face rejection of your loan request, your stress can be increased. In a bad credit situation, when you feel like the doors of borrowing funds are closed forever, the online direct lender will come to your rescue. Private lenders are lenient and they never judge your creditworthiness through your past borrowing history. In short, online lenders bring you a chance to improve your financial situation by lending you money despite poor credit history.

 

Get Your Cash without Involving A Broker

 

Now you must be thinking to turn to a loan broker to reach the genuine lender. If you are planning to seek the assistance of a loan broker, then you should skip this plan. Nowadays, the lenders are providing complete details about their offers and policies over the internet and offering the loans for bad credit people with no guarantor, no fees and no brokers. And this way you will save not only your time but also get the funds immediately.

 

The Benefits You Can Avail If Avoid to Approach A Loan Adviser

 

Before applying for the loans, it is always necessary to know about the benefits that will come your way if you apply directly from the online lenders. One of the most attractive benefits is that you will indeed save a lot of time and money. In fact, the processing will speed up and you can avail a loan despite not having a guarantor. Apart from borrowing through the easy lending process, you can also enjoy the quick disbursement of cash.

 

An Ideal Alternative for Jobless Borrowers

 

Since the reasons are many why you need to borrow extra funds, finding a loan option according to requirements seems to be beneficial to get the best outcome. What will you do if despite not having a satisfactory credit score, you lose your job? In such circumstances, the option of short term loans for unemployed people does prove to be the ideal. The loans are ideal for jobless people and give them a chance to manage their financial condition until the next job is found.

To avail the benefits of these loans, make sure to sign a deal with a genuine lender and evaluate the loan offers carefully.
