Redneck Heaven is a hee-haw-arious look into the lives of Meredith Colt and the Rednecks she is now living in harmony with.
In the hills of Pennsylvania sits a quiet town known as Heaven. Meredith feels the need to retreat to her late grandfathers house in the woods to lick the wounds of losing her fiance (on her wedding day) and her job.
Her "quiet retreat" soon turns into a fun-filled, no holds barred, laugh riot between this new "Flatlander" and the entire population of Heaven.
One Redneck that doesn't ever seem to get enough of Meredith is the local logging company owner and volunteer fireman, Marlon Bridges.
Marlon pushes all of Meredith's buttons in all the best possible ways.
This story was quick paced and full of back and forth banter that will keep you giggling.
I wasn't too sure about all of the hot and cold emotions and screaming matches at first, but as the story progressed I found myself smiling at the tongue in cheek wit.
The cast of characters were too charming and as a girl who lives in a small town, I understood exactly where they were coming from.
I would say that this would be a great light read that can't be taken too seriously. Funny and cute! I would recommend this book to anyone who wanted a fast and easy read. It's also a great story to escape to from all the vampires, apocalypse, and heavy drama that seems to be so popular right now. Redneck Heaven isn't supernatural, but who needs witches and zombies when you have a full grown snark war between a city girl and an entire town all while the local hottie is trying desperately to win over her heart?
This book was received free of charge for the purpose of a review.
Marlon was used to responsibility. He had been named the head of his household and his brothers ever since they were little. Work had be his only love and pleasure, with the exception of a few close friends. He built his company from the ground up, which left very little time for his personal life. Not to mention all of the problems his siblings gave him. But that all changed on the train ride to his sisters wedding. He saved a red-headed fireball from crashing into a mirror, never guessing that she would change his life forever.
This book rocked! Not only is Meredith armed with a firey temper, but her thoughts and quirky sense of humor are hilariously fresh! She was definitely my favorite character. Her interactions with the townspeople, and not to mention her fireman welcome had me rolling with laughter. This story had a lot of twists and turns and I must admit that I was completely shocked at the plot outcome. I didn't see it coming which made it a joy for me!! Meredith goes through a growing period after she moves and her sparkling personality is finally able to break free after being smothered for so long. She becomes a better version of herself and actually helps Marlon as well. It was a joyously delicious read..I would actually say it was Smokin Hot!! Hats off to you Mrs. Wallace!! I hope to read another book by you really soon!!
I absolutely love the character of Meredith. She is a woman who lives life to the fullest, and she tends to change her mood with the wind. I am not a huge fan of Marlon. I guess he can't be too bad if Meredith likes him.
The story had its high points, but there were some things that seemed muddied and did not always make sense. No spoilers from me!
What really hurt this book from my perspective was the prolific use of profanity and erotic sex scenes. I would just start enjoying the story, and the F-bomb would be dropped for no reason. And the sex scenes seem really unrealistic. But that is just my opinion. I can assure you that many would disagree with me.
In short, this book is a nice, light romance that celebrates all things Redneck. I would not recommend it highly, but the story line will keep you interested. In fact, the author adds in a few twists at the end that I did not see coming.
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated in any way, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
