I signed up for the White Oaks tour, but didn’t quite get this finished in time to post with the tour. So….let’s enter the swamps of White Oaks.
Go by the tour page and enter the giveaway for a chance at a $20 Amazon gift card and a Kindle version of the book.
Everything about White Oaks appeals to me, from the fabulous cover to the wonderful blurb and the southern location. I was hooked from the beginning. Written in a comic style with characters that fit the southern profile, including the family’s three siblings that want to control their father’s fortune.
White Oaks is the Trapnell family’s plantation.
White Oaks starts out with a yellow Lamborghini racing into town and a foxy woman, Aimee, holding a bottle of Southern Comfort getting out. You may draw your own conclusions. lol
We also have Trainor, driving a beat up, rusted truck, feigning poverty because of his divorce from his gold digging third wife
And Marsh, am arms dealer.
Don’t forget Karen, the older sibling by another mother.
Blanton, their father, has no trouble playing them off against each other, sticking the knife in and twisting it. I’m not sure if any of them are worth the paper I am writing my notes on, even the grandchildren, who learn nothing good from their elders.
Blanton is celebrating his 90th birthday, and his wish? “I want to kill a man.”
His children’s bumbling and fumbling to grant his wish lead them on a wild mystery ride of gators, snakes, and treachery, all done with a comically light touch. There is more than meets the eye going on and I loved the twists and turns that Jill Hand came up with.
Humor, mystery, murder and a plot to bring on Ragnarok.
The characters are ones that I love to hate, at times showing some redeeming qualities as they traverse the world on a mission that has so many twists and turn I was constantly surprised.
I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of White Oaks by Jill Hand.
