|No, Officer, it wasn't me.|
*Not from a small town? Where I grew up the town cops didn't have too much to do other than check on local high school students. Sometimes they were a little too vigilant. I most definitely did come to a complete stop, but it's as good excuse as any to check to see if a 16-year-old has booze in the car. Not that I knew anyone who did that. ;)
I have, however, been pulled over once for speeding in a well-known speed trap (Villa Grove) and been pulled over once for speeding on the open road (U.S. 36, just outside of Newman). Both times I got off with written warnings. That's Miss Binnie's luck shining through. All in all, it's not a bad inheritance.
|A perfect beach read|
Luck of the Devil is a fun and irreverent romp of a romance. Faith's geeky-cute neighbor has a pretty big secret, but that just means he's quite comfortable with Faith's secrets and all her assorted problems. (A girl's gotta hide that tail and those horns, right? And how do you casually introduce your date to your demonic dad?)
I found the author's blog through the BettyVerse and clicked around enough to find this book. I'm so glad I did. I would call this a perfect beach read. Fun and light. If you take all discussions of good and evil seriously, this probably isn't the book for you. But if you like a lot of irreverence in your reading, Luck of the Devil you're in for a treat.
