I received a free copy of this book from the publishers in exchange for an honest review.
This is a sweet little romance with a side order of desperation and a dash of crazy. I was drawn in from the first chapter, I was laughing at Lulu's experiment to see what her alcohol tolerance would be and how she met Mason.
Lulu finds out that her daddy has lost the money for her college education and things take a wacky turn from there. She is desperate to go to college and comes up with a plot to make and sell moonshine, something that is highly illegal. But Lulu is determined not to stay in Dale, she wants out of the town as soon as possible and manages to persuade her best friends and the outsider Mason to help her set up and get a still going.
I wasn't sure at first if what I was reading was a letter to a dead person, a letter of apology or a letter explaining and asking for forgiveness. It wasn't until I was part way through that it fell into place. It's definitely an apology with a question added at the end.
She didn't plan on getting attached to Mason. He was just supposed to help her get the still up and running but love has a way of tripping people up and throwing spanners into the works.
This is a lovely read, it has a great cast of characters, the story line is entertaining and well-written but it's not too sweet. There is some heartache in there too, not just for Lulu but also for her best friends.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys a great read.
