High Cotton By Debby Mayne

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 reunions . . . 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 predictable life? One thing is certain: Life in the Bucklin family is never boring.

My Thoughts...

Sweet tea and a southern family reunion. This book was not what I expected, I loved the whole story. All five of the main characters brought something different and they all felt like family, even the ones that I want to knock up side the head.
You are going to want to grab a copy of this fun, light hearted read.
I am so excited that this is a series and we are going back to the family reunion again this fall.  I can't wait.
I gave this book 4 stars. I recommend getting your copy right away and getting to know the Bucklin family.
