Review

5 Stars -- This zany story is laugh-out loud funny, squirm in your seat sexy, and so much fun to read. - Amie Louellen

5 Stars -- Jessica at Peace Love Books

4 Stars -- Ah, the publishing world, what a strange and mysterious place.  And, it seems as time passes there are going to be more and more books that I'm going to miss just because it's getting harder to find them on a list.  Well, it almost happened again with The Devil has Dimples, a little gem of a book.  Or should I say ebook. A self-published ebook.  A self-published ebook in first person and also acontemporary.  And, no this isn't some kind of twilight zone SidneyKay must be a pod person thing.  I actually liked this book. - SidneyKay at Kay's Blog

4 Stars -- Pepper Phillips has just gained a new fan!!! I loved this book. From start to finish you are grinning from ear to ear! Small town charm where everybody knows everybody knows everybody's business. Characters that grip your heart and make you smile with their wittiness and make you a bit angry with their tempers, too! Boggy Bayou is a place I want to go and meet all these amazing characters! -- Reviews by Molly

4 Stars -- A fast read that had my interest from the get-go, The Devil Has Dimples offers an entertaining mystery as the main characters piece together broken history. With a satisfying conclusion, and more importantly a compelling journey, the novel maintained its momentum well. - Laura at Change the World

More About the Author

Pepper Phillips wrote her first play in the seventh grade. But before that she read every book in her age group at the small local library in Northeast, Maryland. An only child for years, she entertained herself in the worlds she created in her mind. She's still pretty mindless in some respects, but her writing world is where she is the happiest.

My Summary:
When Maudie Cooper died, the town rejoiced. She wasn't exactly liked because, she liked to gossip and she was quick to point out who was cheating on whom. So, you can imagine the town's surprise when Maudie's illegitimate daughter Sara comes to town after her funeral.

Sara McLaughlin never knew she was adopted, so when she receives a letter stating that her birth mother had died, to say she was surprised would be an understatement. When Sara responds to the letter sent by Maudie's attorney, Grant St. Romaine, she never expect to find a handsome young guy. As Grant explains the details of Maudie's will to Sara, she's unsure if she can follow through with the plan. When she finds out that Grant was Maudie's roommate, things become much more interesting and the thought of staying put for six weeks doesn't seem so bad after all.

My Take:
I honestly wasn't sure what to expect from this book. The blurb for the book sounded good, but I was trying to figure out how the cover reflected the story. I thought maybe it would be a cheeky romance, but what I found was a really lovely story about new love, old love, and finding out who you are.

When the story begins with Maudie's death, it's being told from a local reporters point of view. I won't say how it ends, but the ending is also told from the reporters POV. However, the rest of the story is told from Sara's point of view. It made it easier to get a reading on her and what was happening throughout the process of finding her answers. I really felt for Sara having to learn such a shocking bit of information. I can't imagine learning that not only are you adopted, but your birth mother has just passed away and you have no answers.

It was fun to follow along with Sara as she met the characters of Boggy Bayou, her birth mother's hometown. She's there to find out who her father is and she's got handsome Grant, the local attorney, to help her find her way.
Living in a small town, I could really relate to the characters and situations in this novel. There are some unique twists that will keep you reading. The characters are fun and sassy, the kind of people I'd love to know in real life. Pepper Phillips has a winner in this contemporary romance.

This is an old-fashioned romp through the layered secrets of a small Southern town. Threaded between the decades-old friendships, rivalries, and jealousies, a young woman searches for information about her birth parents. A hot dimpled lawyer shows Sara the ropes and a very good time. Pepper Phillips caught the pulse of small towns and the eternal pull of true love.

Laugh out loud good. Ms. Phillips has captured the charm of a small town, the eccentricities of the population, the depth of a mother's love, and the confusion of begin drop-kicked into unfamiliar territory. I enjoyed every moment of this story and hope to see more of Ms. Phillips work available soon.

I appreciate the work that goes into a novel and I usually am not a nitpicker, but....in Chapter 7, there is a character who is named "Sedge". He is called that four or five times. In the same chapter, he is suddenly called "Serge". I had to go back and reread this to make sure I read it correctly. I think this book could have been proofread much better. It distracted me from enjoying it. There were also places where there were words missing. I read more than half way through and then skimmed it to the end. With better editing I would have given it more stars and not skimmed at all.

This book touched my heart, made me laugh, and kept me guessing. The writer does a wonderful job of describing small town Louisiana life. It made me feel close to home.

This book has a pretty good plot, but the story just wasn't told well. Here are some of the issues I had with it :

Elementary vocabulary
Grammatical errors - there were errors that were just silly and should have been caught.
Immature characters - I felt like Sara was fifteen instead of late twenties. She was exceedingly immature and hard to relate to.
No explanation for dramatic changes- for long periods of time it felt like the story was going nowhere. There were many unnecessary details included that made it seem aimless. But then things would just suddenly happen like Sara and Grant being on bad terms after Grant 's accident or Maudie suddenly being back from the dead.

I kept thinking everything would come together at the end of the story, but it didn't. Very disappointed.

I loved this book. Please give yourself a treat and get this ebook. Usually I delete ebooks I've read nut this one is a keeper. It kept me laughing and guessing about the ending. The characters were quirky yet delightful. It makes you want to be part of that small town.
Happy reading!
