What I found made this book so charming, was the family element. Through tragedy and learning, through distance and ups and downs, the characters in this book remind the reader of the value of unconditional love. I certainly recommend this book to anyone looking for a light, yet substantial read.
Gioertz' characters jump off the page and grab you by the shirt tails, dragging the reader into their world. She's given them a wonderful back country setting and added a big city lawyer or two.
I loved this book and you will too!

This story is a tale of standing up and doing whats right and learning how to take the walls down and accept some help. Eli and her sisters have a tragic past but they find away to stick together and get the problem solved with the help of a young lawyer.
Eli is the main focus as she seems to have the most scars and the high emotional boundaries but learns it won't killer to accept help and let go.
COUNTRY GIRLS is a heart-felt family story of love and loyalty that any one can appreciate. It is a quick read full of love and humor. Karina Gioertz has done a fine job at story telling in this novel.
25 years after the tragic fire these three girls are 32, 29, and 25/26 years of age. They act and talk like they are about 13. The only thing Eli was missing was a plug of chew in her mouth. I get they grew up with grandpa on the ranch and are tough as nails country girls, but did they have to be such caricatures? I have feeling the whole plot was just an attempt to write a novel based on the Dixie Chicks old hit, "Goodbye Earl." At least the song had a catchy chorus.
The author chose to have Emma tell this story from the first person PoV, but you can't have it both ways. Emma tells what is happening in places she is not at and gives the thoughts of other characters. This just did not work for me---if Emma is telling the story she cannot just know the thoughts and actions of everyone else. The character of Evey was paper thin and useful only as a plot device.
All in all this was pretty cliche, and the dialogue and actions never felt very real. In a 3 minute country song that might work, in a novel not so much.
Also, if editing issues bother you then you really need to give this a skip. Too many commas in the wrong places, too few in the correct places, an overuse of words that just don't work (seriously, when you are angry you seldom "quip" and yet Eli did it so often my eyes were rolling)--it seemed as though a professional editor never went near this book.
