I admit that being anything BUT a country girl; this book took a little warming up to. However, once I picked it up, I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN! The country was merely the stage for this wildly entertaining look into the lives of three sisters whose love, strength and courage help them to conquer the demons of their past,stir up a lifetime of trouble, and blaze a path straight to their future. It was an unexpectedly emotional journey that I hope goes on for generations to come! YEEEHAAW, what a ride!

I can definitely say that I had an impartial view when going into this book, as I am anything but a country girl. I wasn't sure how much I would like this, as country is not really my thing. I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed this sweet and interesting story. You can't help but care about the characters in this book as they pull at your heartstrings early one. For once, it was difficult for me to choose the character I liked the most, as they were all very well written and individual.

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.

Fried Green Tomatoes-esque novel with a rather predictable story line. Great character development really made it more worth reading. A good tale of small town eccentricities and family ties. Also is a quick read.

Some nice plot twists. Keeps you wondering how things will turn out. Strong women characters who might be a bit over the top, but turns out they have every right to be.

This is a wonderful, rollicking read. I love Karina Gioertz's style! These three sisters will do anything for one another. They prove there's nothing stronger than love of your family, in this wonderful story.

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!

The Wilson girls have a tragic past. Orphaned at a young age Emma, Eli and Eve were raised by their grandpa Harry in Louisiana. Angie is a small town where the folk go about theirs and everyone elses business. Everyone also knows that Emma and Eli never run from trouble or a good fight and often start them. They get their fair share of trouble after they rescue their very pregnant sister Eve from her husband and try to teach him a lesson. Things go horribly wrong when he disappears and his family wants to point fingers at the girls.

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.

I like tough, country girls! Grew up on a ranch myself and have done more than my share of feeding, fixing fence, mucking stalls, etc. However, if I had ever ended up in jail,,, my grandfather's reaction would have been quite different! Its a change to find a story where sisters not just willing to stick up for one another whatever the cost, but acting on those feelings. And also women not holding their horrible beginnings as excuses for what they've become and what they've done. They can take care of themselves and each other and you better get outta their way as they do it! Good story!

The premise was good, the execution was difficult to get through. It started well, but then the 3 girls grew up and it all went downhill fast.

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.
