Portable Mistletoe

Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.

The Pecan Man ★★☆☆☆ (DNF)

The Pecan Man - Cassie Dandridge Selleck

I tried, I really did. But maybe the author was a little too true to the voice of her main character, because the first hour of this was just like listening to somebody else’s old granny rambling her way through a story. Maybe it got better, but I didn’t wait around to find out. DNF

 

I intended to read this for the 2018 Halloween Bingo square Southern Gothic : mystery, supernatural, suspense or horror set in the Southern part of the United States. It seemed to fit because it was a murder/miscarriage of justice story set in Florida. Since I wasn’t able to finish it, I’m going with The Elementals - Michael Rowe,Michael McDowell  instead.
