(ARC REVIEW) Gin Fling returns us to the world of Bootleg Springs and the Bodine family, and it is a gosh-darn delight. I love this family and this town so much. There is so much humor, heart, family, and moonshine throughout the first five books, with a mystery unraveling across each. It’s so rare to find the perfect combo and balance between mystery, humor, and romance. I’m not sure how much to say without giving away the plot of the overarching mystery, but let’s just say it took another intriguing turn this book and I am on the edge of my seat waiting for the 6th book to come out next month.
Jonah is my favorite Bodine so far, but I’m willing to fall in love with Gibson next as well. I’ve been anxiously waiting for Jonah’s story from the beginning, and he did not disappoint. He is such a calming presence,and the perfect balance to Shelby’s more unsettled lifestyle. He’s supportive without overwhelming or overpowering. I was so glad he got some of the answers he was looking for. Shelby’s on her own journey and I always appreciate an intelligent, confident weirdo.
Do yourself a favor and check out not only this book, but the four before it, so you too can travel to the world of Bootleg Springs. 5/5 Stars.
