I LOVE THIS BAR
Normally Brown’s contemporary romps are jam-packed, but this one is just too busy to be entirely enjoyable. Jarod spends too long being prejudiced against Daisy for owning a bar. Uncle Emmit may be faking his Alzheimer’s. And instead of Chigger’s sexuality adding dimension to her character, this sex-crazed sidekick has little emotional depth. Ultimately, there are just too many characters and not enough plot to go around in this oddly engrossing read.
