It's about a woman successful in law but not in love, a small town that harbors its own share of oddities and [...]
Okay, so I'll start out by saying that this genre is not always my cup of tea. I don't read a ton of "chick lit" unless I just need some light reading to clear my head or I'm on vacation or something like that. However, I really liked this book for several reasons. First, this book is set in small-town Oklahoma and seeing how I'm a Stillwater-born, Okie from Muskogee-bred Tulsa girl, I was, of course, intrigued. I love all of the references to Oklahoma and how things are done there. I've been aw [...]
In the beginning this fun, off-kilter and wonderful 1st person is a look into the world of a steel magnolia southern woman, her family and her friends. Off beat and sweet, these smart and always stylish women are hell-on-wheels when it comes to protecting, defending and exacting retribution for one of their own. You cheat on one of these Southern Belles and Lord have mercy. Revenge, Southern Style, is beautiful thing.Miss Lilly Atkins has turned into a adult cliché with the 1st in class law deg [...]
Lilly Atkins is a big city lawyer whose nearly perfect life winds up getting turned upside down. She then packs up her things to head back to her hometown of Brooks, Oklahoma to rediscover her roots. Only she didn't anticipate any of what happens next.It's always great when you can find a book with a strong female lead who doesn't need a man to get things done. Don't get me started on all the other characters besides Lilly. Every single one is exciting and so unpredictable. I loved all of them.A [...]
Such a cute read that features a strong lead character as well as a great (and hysterical at times) supporting cast of characters. I'm a native New Yorker and I've never lived in a small southern town before but I loved reading about this one. The town is almost like another character itself. I thought Lily was great and I did enjoy how she turned to her family and went back home after going through a hard time in her life. I don't even think I would totally brand this book chick-lit because whi [...]
This book was entertaining. I am from a small town in Oklahoma just like the one the writer describes in the book. I thought some of the scenarios in the book we quite funny because they we things my girlfriends and I have pulled before. I can also appreciate the way the author describes her characters because I can actually picture them, it probably helps that I knew most of them in person :) Overall I think the book is a great story for someone who is looking to be entertained and looking for [...]
If you are looking for a fun and comedic book with a touch of romance and a semi-dark twist, this is the book for you. It has everything from southern charm to a captivating plot line. I could appreciate all Texas/Oklahoma references in the book, as I too grew up in Texas (small town) and now reside in Oklahoma. I was seriously hooked from the first chapter and that doesn't happen too often. Take this book with you on vacation or spend a rainy weekend reading it, you will be sure to enjoy it. I [...]
I received this ARC in exchange for my honest review. I couldn't put it down once I started reading it. You will just fall in love with Lilly. Light and humorous book to read. It will leave you wanting more of Lilly and her friends and family. Great story line and very capable strong southern women!!! I so can't wait to read more of this series. How will things with her former flame go? Is Cash up to no good?
Cute fun fast summer read that will have mystery lovers and Romance lovers reading until the very end of the bookC From Netgalley
Southern humor and the lawThe story is actually quite humorous which is unusual in the law. OK raised young lawyer catches her Texas raised fiance in bed with his bimbo secretary. Returning to OK and sets up law office in the small town she was raised in. Unfortunately even small towns have crime - attempted murder, arson and murder, divorce, adultery, AND the selling of body parts on the black market. She and her side kick break into offices searching for evidence!Most of this is humorous simpl [...]
FunnyThe prodigal daughter returns. Or rather she’s gone home to lick her wounds. Funny and irreverent, this book will at least bring a smile or two to your face. Small town life and justice abound when attorney Lilly goes home. Instantly pulled back into the life without barely missing a beat, she pulls in her big girl boots and lands in a mystery where body parts go missing and her ex-boyfriend insinuates himself back into her life.
Well written, Southern Charm Mixed With Western Attitude And we have a winner!!! I really enjoyed this book, I am thoroughly looking forward to the next adventures of Lilly and Company! The tale is attention grabbing and truly imaginstive as well as laugh out loud entertainment! A must read for most any woman and written in a style you can hand ofc to your teen daughter without worry!
Amusing story This definitely was humorous. Cowboy boots and big hair with loads of make-up make this a very strange mystery with some twists & turns. Not a very deep book. This was a brainless read.
She'd been done wrong After Lily caught her fiancee in bed with his secretary e left Dallas and went home to Oklahoma and opened her law practice there. She had no idea what awaited her in her small home town. This book is fun with mystery and bits of romance
GreatWhat you get when you take a Attorney, a Oklahoman & stupid men. A wonderful story about a young woman coming home after catching her ex fiancé cheating. Now her ex boyfriend is a getting into trouble and she needs to figure out what's going on.
Good read with a twistI started this book and thought it was a typical chick book with a typical ending, but I was wrong. It was fun to read with a twist and leaving you wanting more.
WellIt's different. But true about small town ways. And gossip. In the south, not only in Oklahoma. Cash and Lilly.
Good readThis book is small town antics and rules to a T. It is laugh-out-loud hilarious and pick-yourself-up-by-your-bootstraps inspirational. It also shows how families can have your back. Can't wait to download the rest. Highly recommend.

I'm an eclectic reader. I will read almost anything, even the back of cereal boxes if there's nothing else. One component that really rocks my library is when an author has a sense of humor. I go along with Reader's Digest on this: Laughter is the best medicine. (A quick net search doesn't yield who originally coined the phrase but one of the closest is a quote by Henry Ward Beecher: Mirth is God’s medicine, so I'll stick with good old Reader's Digest on this one.) Anyway, that's certainly a d [...]
Not very well written, needs the services of a good editorI quite enjoyed the storyline. As an atheist I found the references to jesus rather offensive and unnecessary. Spoiled the whole book for me. Leave out the god references and the story would be much better.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This is the first of a (so far) 3 part series about Miss Lilly Atkins. I had origianlly reviewed the 3rd book and had to read this series from the beginning. While this is a stand alone book, since there are two others go read them! Lilly, from small town Brooks, Oklahoma, returns back home to live with her sister (and basically with her parents and grandparents) after breaking up with her cheating fiance. As with most small towns, [...]

I received this book in exchange for an honest review from NetgalleyI love this series! I can not get enough of Ms. Lloyds small town world and the amazing characters she creates. I love that I can laugh and scratch my head while still following along. I actually read the second book first and was able to follow everything that happened but couldn't wait to read the first one. Lilly Kay is a stubborn smart and sassy lead and her posse never fails to "help" out. loved getting to know the reasons [...]
