Not My Type of Southern Gothic
This is a nouveau Southern Gothic story for sure. You just know that things aren’t as they seem, and things certainly do go bump in the night. I didn’t particularly enjoy this book despite the author’s wonderful ability to put you right into a scene with her deft sensory descriptions. I was turned off by the very first chapter. I really think authors need to put warnings in the blurb when a book tackles, or even mentions, certain taboo subjects like incest. While I have no experience of that personally, thank goodness, I actually have no desire to read a book where it is at all a factor. The book is a page-turner and otherwise well written, so if the incest doesn’t bother you, you might enjoy this book.
