REDNECKS `N' ROCK CANDY is a continuation of the first book of this series, REDNECKS `N' ROSES. It picks up eight months after the first book ends. Though Amber and Rusty are in this story, this novella focuses on Sheriff Brad Keister and Mandi O'Brian. Both characters that were introduced in book one.
Their story begins when Mandi heads down south for Amber's wedding. There she meets the town's sheriff and though he's hot, she's not interested in getting romantically tangled up with a man living in Yoderville.
Brad has had to adjust to life as a vampire, which hasn't been easy since his love life died since the change. When Mandi comes into his life, the passion is back on. Problem is winning her over, not to mention having to save her life a time or two.
Brad won my heart in book one, but I found Mandi rubbed me the wrong way with her bulldozer type personality. Not only that, she was too much of a snot towards people. I guess this is why I didn't enjoy this second installment nearly as much as the first.
Another issue I had is I felt a couple of the scenes were repeats from the first book. An example is when Amber arrived at the farmhouse, her cat ran under the porch and she tried to coax him out. In book two, Mandi accidentally lets out Amber's cat and it's a repeat. Also, in book one, Rusty was in a tree spying on Amber. Book two, Brad was in the same tree, but spying on Mandi. Since both stories are so short, I'd have like to see something fresh.
Even with my minor complaints, I thoroughly enjoyed both. I look forward to reading more books by this author.
