Stealing Taffy (Bigler, North Carolina Series)
St. Martin’s Press / August 30th 2016 / $7.99 print & digital
This book snuck up on me and clobbered me over the head with awesome. I honestly wasn’t sure what I would think about it at first. For some reason I was afraid I wouldn’t like it. A few chapters in, though, and I could see that I was very, very wrong. It turned out to be a truly wonderful, enjoyable, and funny read. I cannot say enough good things about it.
Set in her Bigler, North Carolina Series, Susan Donovan’s Stealing Taffy begins in the airport with Tanyalee Newberry, just coming back from a stint in rehab (forgery, kleptomania, and love addiction—it’s a long story), and Dante Cabrera, a DEA officer, crossing paths and spending one wild night in a hotel room together. After that, Tanyalee (also known as Taffy) leaves Dante, thinking the two of them will never see each other again.
He glanced around the room again, and that’s when he saw it - something shiny near his right shin. He stared at the bracelet. What the hell? Then he noticed a small piece of paper underneath. Dante snapped everything up and read Taffy’s words—“something to remember me by.”
He laughed. Damn, that girl was good.
