I really enjoyed Sock Poacher and the Shower Thief! This is my first book by Freddy MacKay but I was interested in reading it due to the unusual title and the fact she’ll be at GRL this year!
Author: Freddy MacKay
Publisher: Mischief Corner Books
My Rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
From the Publisher:
Namid’s a city boy, born and bred, but he needs a change of pace. Tired of the political jockeying and demands of being a doctor in Chicago, he moves West to Hooper’s Town. He’s about to find out that “quaint small town” is really a euphemism for “completely weird.”
Porches that attack people, herds of cats, nookomis watching him like hawks, Namid accepts the small town as it is because of one important factor–a recluse of a cowboy he just happens to save from a fire. Now if only Namid could find a way to tell Dusty the whole town is gleefully gossiping about them dating.
I found the Sock Poacher and the Shower Thief charming! Despite starting out on a misunderstanding, this is a couple that do well together 🙂
I thought the author did a good job. You got a good, clear picture of both Namid and Dusty, as well as all the other cast of quirky characters. The book was light in tone, despite a few tragedies happening, which kept it from being bogged down with angst. The mystery wasn’t as well fleshed out, but it didn’t really matter. The rest of the story, especially the scenes that led to the title, were well done.
It was quirky, fun and a little over the top; from the meddling grandmothers to the sheriff, everyone’s love was evident. I have to mention the cats and the Strip and Run 5 K (I’ll let your imaginations go with that one) as well! They were a whole other layer of crazy in this little town.
It made Sock Poacher and the Shower Thief a real comfort read.
I would like to thank Mischief Corner Books for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
