"My name is Dovey Coe, and I reckon it don't matter if you like me or not. I'm here to lay the record straight, to let you know them folks saying I done a terrible thing are liars.... I hated Parnell Caraway as much as the next person, but I didn't kill him."

I enjoyed this book. It was a very quick read with an interesting storyline. The narrator's voice was very engaging, and though at times I wondered if the dialect wasn't slightly over the top, the author's effort to convey Dovey's voice just as if she were telling you the story was well-executed. Dovey's fierce loyalty to her family and her town as well as her determination to speak her mind even when it's a bit "inappropriate" reminded me of a good friend of mine, which added another dimension to the story for me. Thanks again for sharing this with me, Griete.

Now it's on its way to lovemylife who grabbed it from the Teen VBB on BookObsessed. Enjoy!
