I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
Post Civil War era, and Mississippi still had issues with slavery or the issue of freed slaves and their rights and battles with the KKK members.
This story picks up right after book one and throughout the story, the author does a great job filling in parts that are significant to the first book, just in case you didn’t read it. I enjoy Beth White’s writing style, her voice and the premises of her books. She’s easily followed, her books steady paced and enthralling, her characters wholesome and well-fleshed out. I finished this book quickly.
Moments of tension were perfectly laid out and the wit and charm of the story shines through with smooth precision. All the characters you loved or hated, or loved hating them, or even hated loving them. They were quirky at times, complicated at others and definitely layered and flawed and believable.
I recommend this series and especially this author if you like clean writing and perfectly thought out stories.
