I just love Southern novels with a sense of cham and humour and in my my mind I was sitting out on the back porch, sipping Ice tea while the fireflys kept me company on a balmy evening in June Reality was a wet Bank holiday Monday in June and the chance to sit outside would be luxury in Ireland, but through reading one can be any where any time and for this book my head was in the deep American South.
I have previously read [b:Blue Asylum|12331596|Blue Asylum|Kathy Hepinstall|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1324673247s/12331596.jpg|17310610][bc:Blue Asylum|12331596|Blue Asylum|Kathy Hepinstall|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1324673247s/12331596.jpg|17310610] by Kathy Hepinstall and thoroughly enjoyed it and was so happy to read [b:The Book of Polly|30763908|The Book of Polly|Kathy Hepinstall|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1471279606s/30763908.jpg|51320025]and it really didn't disappoint as the writting and characters just ooze that southern charm that makes me want to pack a bag and hop on a plane.
I simply adored the characters in this book and the lines were just fabulous with so much wit and humour and charm that I laughed out loud many times. I fell head over heels in love with Polly and her no nonsense attitude and Willow and the other characters were equally as interesting and charming. There is a serious side to the story when the " Bear" becomes a reality in the lives of Polly and Willow but the author has a way with words that keeps this book fresh and fun.
This isn't the sort of book that keeps you on the edge of your seat but its a beautiful story, well written and full of witty lines with tons of southern charm. Its the sort of feel good book that keeps you turning the pages because you have fallen for the characters and care about what becomes of them.
Really enjoyed this book and recommend it to readers who have enjoy southern fiction or just want a feel good summer read to transport them to someplace else.
