Ten-Second Book Review - Sister Mine

Sister Mine by Tawni O'Dell

Okay, I loved this book. I didn't want it to end. The main character is a hard-drinking, cussing, bad-ass former cop with a propensity for getting into bar fights in her small Pennsylvania coal-mining town. Yes, HER town; she's a chick. The sister she thought had been dead for 18 years shows up, nine months pregnant and being followed by a New York attorney, a Connecticut socialite (who basically bought the baby,) and a Russian thug. Makes my family seem normal :) There's an interesting and well-written cast of secondary characters that round out this novel beautifully. Sharply-written, wickedly funny, and an extremely likable heroine.

4.5 stars out of 5
