"The good book says to love your neighbor. No one in it moved next door to a Lawson." ~ 22%
Inheriting a house is usually good news, right? Especially when it comes with an attractive, tall, dark and sexy neighbor. Not the case for Alex Bridges when she learns of the legendary hundred-year old family feud. That sexy neighbor is her enemy. And there's an additional monetary inheritance at stake if she doesn't run him out of the neighborhood for good.
Feud was an impulse buy. If I am not familiar with the author, or not already granted an advance copy, then I stalk a book before buying. It helps curb my book budget. But the eBook was on sale for $2.99 and a couple of my bookhearts were reading it too. After seeing their delight, I immediately pressed "Buy and Send to Kindle." What a treat! Best three bucks I've spent in a while.
"It's easy to think Alex should be nicer when you're sitting on your fanny with a book in your hand." ~ 27%
How the author, Phyllis Bourne, went from being a newspaper crime reporter to comical romance fiction is beyond me. But I'm glad she found her true calling! The witty dialogue, the relatable characters and the pacing was perfect. I felt like a third main character eavesdropping on the neighborly feud shenanigans. Normally the character speaking directly to the reader (as in the quote above) would annoy me. But in Feud? Oh, it was genius! No exaggeration when I tell you I literally LOL'ed and said aloud, "Yessss, girl!" One scene in particular makes me chuckle now just thinking about it. I would love a follow-up book! Bookhearts, look no further for a cute quick read.
