Shay Henke can’t believe her eyes when she receives an invitation to another family reunion. She loves her family to death, but it seems like every few months they are having another reunion. Yes, she is excited to see her mother’s family once again but she knows the reunion will be filled with so much drama. I’ve never read a Debby Mayne novel before, but after reading HIGH COTTON I know this one won’t be my last. This heart warming story is filled with laugh out loud moments and so much family drama that the reader will not be able to put it down.
While all of this is going on, Shay is trying to keep a big secret from her brother, Digger and it has to do with his wife, Puddin. Yes, that is really her name. She has been working behind his back and doesn’t want him to know because of his pride and being able to provide for his family. Shay really tries to keep everyone happy and tries to take care of all of her family, but there is only so much she can do. This latest family reunion is going to be the death of her if she doesn’t put on the brakes with trying to keep the peace. Every one of her family members knows there’s going to be family drama and trust me, they are not disappointed. HIGH COTTON is so funny but also filled with family, love, faith, and depth.
HIGH COTTON is a quick read and unputdownable! There were quite a few times when reading it that I wanted to reach into the pages and slap a few of these family members. But that’s how families are, you love them and they drive you crazy at the same time. If you love southern women’s fiction and small town stories, HIGH COTTON will not disappoint. I found myself laughing one second and then tearing up the next. If you are looking for a beautiful story to pull you out of your book slump, you can’t go wrong with HIGH COTTON. I’m so excited to continue with this series. I’d much rather deal with the Bucklin family then my very own. Debby Mayne is now one of my auto buy authors.
HIGH COTTON is the first book in the Bucklin Family Reunion series. I received this book from the publisher for review. A favorable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
Some families are filled with so much love they can’t help but drive each other crazy
Shay Henke has mixed feelings about going to her family’s next reunion. On the one hand, she’ll get to see everyone in her mama's family—folks she loves unconditionally. On the other hand, she knows there’ll be more drama than you can shake a stick at.
The days leading up to the event bring one surprise after another. First Shay must deal with her sister-in-law’s deep, dark secret. Then she has to contend with the childish ways of her business-mogul twin cousins. And when her high school crush wants to be her date to the reunion . . . well, it may have been a dream come true for Shay’s teen self, but the woman she’s become doesn’t know what to make of this.
Shay’s contentment is challenged, and she’s determined to shake things up a bit. But will she find the excitement she’s looking for, or will Shay realize she prefers her quiet and predictable life? One thing is certain: Life in the Bucklin family is never boring.
Life in the south to me, is the best life. We have our times of upheaval but it usually slows back down. We live a life where the front porch is usually called a sitting porch and the fireflies are called lightning bugs. This southern life is how I grew up and I wouldn't change it for anything.
My children were born in Alabama and many of the ideals and situations described in High Cotton are similar to mine. The setting of the story is about four hours from my home. Life in Alabama is about the same as Mississippi maybe just a tad more fast paced but basically the same. I love my life here but the humidity is something I can do without.
Shay on the other hand isn't quite sure as an adult returning for a family reunion if she misses the old home place. So the store takes you through the twists and turns and encounters she makes trying to make sense of it all. But she has to take an honest look by the time the story ends to determine if she is missing out on life here in this small town, after all.

A great down home country life type story that warms your heart.
