This book was so freaking cute. I love all of the Landry books but this one was definitely different because it wasn’t about a Landry from Autre but rather a cousin from a different part of Louisiana. One who was just as outrageous and really couldn’t be pulled back. Charlie was the exact opposite of the grumpy Griffin who we had met in the previous book. He just wanted to be left alone and live a life unattached to others because then he wouldn’t get hurt. However, Charlie came into his life like a hurricane and turned it upside down with her ideas and her shock at being told the word “no”. I though it was cute that Charlie was kind of shocked that Griffin said “no” to her plans but she also wasn’t offended by it and that made her more interesting to me. Too much we see characters in works of fiction who are never told “no” and when they are they throw a fit. Charlie just worked harder to get Griffin on her side no matter the idea by listening to his expertise on how things needed to be done if they were going to have the events.
Though this book wasn’t as funny as the previous books there were some pretty great one-liners that made me crack up. And, of course, Ellie is always a great source of entertainment. I do wish that we could have “seen” the entire Boys of the Bayou gang but Kennedy was only mentioned in the book even though she was mayor of the town. I think that with this book being the start of the spin-off series it’s only going to get better from here. We have the three brothers next starting with Fletcher in a best friends-to-lovers romance that is guaranteed to be interesting. You’ll see why at the end of this book. Though I do hope we get to “see” more of the crazy animals. Those goats were great!
