The author made it easy to empathize with these characters with writing that makes you feel right along with them. For Thuy (and for me, at least) that includes how she feels about the library, and books:
“From the time I learned to read, the library was the place I could escape. I felt Sarah Crewe’s nobility in The Little Princess...I rode dragons in Anne McCaffrey’s books. I went to the restaurant at the end of the universe with Douglas Adams.”
Smart and tough, we slowly get hints on Thuy’s background, but it’s clear pretty quickly that she’s got some familiarity with criminal elements, so Drill’s background doesn’t faze her other than in a “getting involved with him would be really stupid“ kind of way, but she finds herself attracted in spite of her best intentions. I loved her loyalty to Maddy even as she struggles to find a place for herself in this foreign, small town, farm country world. Even the library is a struggle as her attempts to help are met with suspicion and sometimes outright hostility from the traditionalist, head librarian.
As for Drill, my impression of him from Winston Brothers books was of a guy who was probably decent enough one on one (he fished regularly with Hank Weller and Beau Winston), but was involved in some shady stuff through the Iron Wraiths. And that’s pretty much the Drill we see here, a man who is struggling with disillusionment as the club that has been his family for the past sixteen years is at risk of falling apart completely, and the man he thought was his brother and friend, Catfish, shows he’s willing to do just about anything to prevent that from happening. Drill’s torn loyalties are a large part of what drives the story, as he (and we), try to figure out a way to keep his sister, and the woman he’d very much like to have a relationship with, safe from his club brothers while still meeting his obligations to that club.
There are some moments of humor; for example, Thuy finding out the guy she’s holding a shotgun on is actually Maddy’s brother (“Well. This promised to be awkward.”😂) or how Scotia Simmons (yes, THAT Scotia Simmons from the Winston Brothers) comes to believe that Thuy and Maddy are a lesbian couple and soon the rest of the town believes it as well. It’s really the suspense and mystery that struck me, though, as I had all these questions throughout the book that kept me turning the pages (What exactly is Thuy’s background? Is Drill going to choose Thuy and Maddy over the Wraiths? If he does, what will the club do to punish him?), most of which were answered, but not all (who DID Catfish have in his bedroom? Anyone who has read Dr. Strange Beard will have their suspicions).
I loved how well Thuy and Drill understood each other, and how protective they each were in their own way, even as my heart was breaking for them as I couldn’t see a way out for Drill. By the end, I literally had tears in my eyes as I was cheering for them both, but for Thuy in particular as she made her stand.
Great characters plus suspense, humor, heat, and all the feels, I loved how all the elements came together for a masterfully crafted conclusion. This author has a new fan, and I have a new entry for my “best of 2019” list. 5+ stars
The storyline was really good. The affection, love, and mutual support between Maddy and Twee was very heartwarming. The romance between Teddy and Twee was super exciting, sexy and very sweet! I really enjoyed that Teddy came to see clearly the truth of what his life had become. And... The surprise at the end was spectacular!!! Cathy Yardley really hit it out of the ballpark with it! I was blown away!!!
I love authors who give us epilogues.... The one in this book was so uplifting and satisfying.. I sighed as I finished the book, at the perfection of a jolly good story!!!! In my opinion this book came the closest to a Penny Reid type story out of all the Smartypants series that I have read so far but I have lots to go 😊! I highly recommend it... It's a real winner!!!😇
This is part of the Green Valley, TN storyline from author Penny Reid but can be a standalone.
Love/family does make you reliant on someone for your emotional, financial etc needs...but the healthy kind of love/family lets you find happiness in other relationships as well.
This was a beautiful story of loyalty & family dissolving, renewing, blossoming and *hope*.
This was a good read.
