Summary

From the best-selling author of Sweet Hollow Women comes a quirky new thriller for fans of Megan Abbott, Liane Moriarty, and Carl Hiaasen.

Veloura has never stood a chance. Raised by negligent parents and orphaned as a teen, she's settled for a life of low expectations. She spends her days sprucing up the shack of a has-been bull rider and washing hair down at the local salon. But when it turns out her fiancé doesn't have her best interests at heart, she's forced to come up with a new plan for herself.

An opportunity to be the spokesperson for a coffee chain means a bright future could be hers, if only she can stay ahead of her dark past.

LOL

Oh wow. This book is different from what I'm used to. It was a whole lot of fun to listen to, except for the backstory. The narrator was so good. the writing was really good, and the characters and dialogue were so much fun.

I liked it

I was able to listen to the audiobook of this. The narrator did a wonderful job. That being said, I did have some issues with Veloura. I understand she was young, but my goodness sometimes I wanted to shake her and tell her to open her eyes! The mystery was a good one though!

Fantastic book that will have you LOL!!

This book had me laughing like a loon! The narrator did a phenomenal job with the various characters...I could certainly picture the douchebag, Thunder! Velora didn’t have the most memorable of childhood, her drug-addicted mother was accidentally killed by a bf when she was in hs. She’s been sort of coasting through life. When she runs off from her bf, who’s been plotting to kill her, she wings it and gets a job as a spokesperson for a coffee shop chain. Velora goes from anonymity to ‘famous’. With a stalker, or stalkers, after her, will Velora survive to celebrate her 21st birthday.
I highly recommend this book if you want to have some laughs. There is one sad spot but that just enhances the story. Definitely a reread/listen!
I accepted a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Amazing characters, and a great plot.

This book tackled a lot of hard topics, and did it really well. The characters were interesting, and fun and I loved every minute.

Humor & Good Plot

A woman who hasn’t know luck, is mistaken for someone else and lands a plush job, for an advertising company traveling. Her past with all the junkies, idiots follow her, the story gives them a good description, which then brings us laughs along the way. Her books are always well written this one had more humor in it for readers to enjoy
