Book Review: gods in Alabama



gods in Alabama by Joshilyn Jackson

This is, simply, a fantastic read.

A blend of chick lit, Southern fiction and suspense, I found myself completely pulled in from the very first line (which you just have to read for yourself).

What happens when a woman makes promises to God, and then ten years later, rescinds her promises as things begin to twist and fall apart? Read this amazingly written novel to find out. It has murder, mystery, a sexy boyfriend, family woes and more all woven into the pages. A brilliant novel, all the more so as it is Jackson's debut.

Highly recommended!
