It doesn't usually take much innuendo to get a rumor started in some places. Joyful, Georgia is no exception in Leslie Kelly's latest book SHE DRIVES ME CRAZY.
Emma Jean Frasier finds out the hard way just how fast gossip can spread as folks in her home town mistakenly assume she is not only the owner of the new strip club being built on the outskirts of town, but also a famous porn star bringing wickedness to Joyful.
After all, she was last seen ten years ago in a local park's gazebo on prom night in her birthday suit with bad boy, now local prosecutor, Johnny Walker.
From the first line in this story, I was hooked. Leslie Kelly creates a sea of funny and often heart warming characters I swear I've met and talked to while traveling through small towns.
SHE DRIVES ME CRAZY is as hilarious as I've come to look forward to in Leslie's books and has a nice twist I didn't expect at the end. The scene in chapter one at the local convenience store involving a sprained ankle and laundry detergent had me laughing until I cried. My personal favorite scene however, involves a window unit air-conditioner on an exceptionally hot day. Whew!!
Leslie Kelly simply rocks! And so does SHE DRIVES ME CRAZY. You're in for a treat when you read this.
SHE DRIVES ME CRAZY is going not only on my must read list, but also has a special place on my book shelf of favorites.
I can't wait for Nick's Walker's story!
