REVIEW: I WANT MORE! Ashley Farley has done it again with Muddy Bottom. This novella introduces a new Lowcountry series called Palmetto Island. If you love her books you are sure to love this one as well. Change of Tides, book 2 comes out February 9, 2021. Make sure you ask for a gift card for Christmas to pre-order as some of us might have a tight budget about that time!
I loved Muddy Bottom. The characters were, as always, believable and not always lovable. I still cared about what was going on and how it all was going to turn out. I absolutely can’t wait to read more of this series. I can see it going in so many directions.
This was a perfect prequel. You get to learn the background and the characters. You just start falling in love and want to read more when Ms. Farley brings this part of the story to a gentle close. Like me, you will be anxious for the next book.
I received a copy of this book from the author for a fair and honest review. Thank you!
SYNOPSIS: A prequel novella for bestselling author Ashley Farley’s upcoming Lowcountry series, Palmetto Island.
Birdie Fuller’s new year is off to a bad start. Her husband has mysteriously disappeared, leaving Birdie to cope with their unmarried daughter’s unplanned pregnancy. Birdie and Hannah disagree about the baby. Birdie urges her daughter to consider abortion, but Hannah is determined to see the pregnancy to term. When Hannah returns for her last semester in college, Birdie must face her demons, the problems in her marriage that drove her husband to clean out their bank accounts and run off with another woman.
While struggling to hide her pregnancy from her roommates and ex-boyfriend, Hannah interviews for jobs that will take her and her baby far away from her mother. After graduation, with months to kill before the start of her new job, she returns to Palmetto Island for the summer to await the birth of her baby. Tension mounts between Hannah and Birdie when they move from their waterfront home to a two-bedroom apartment above a bakery. Can mother and daughter mend their relationship? Or will they be lost to each other forever?
