This book is packed with a punch. I found myself absorbed in it from the first sentence. Why it has its raw moments, its funny and interesting moments, it did have a good pacing that kept me focused on the storyline, characters and scenes.
A. T. Hicks has a very descriptive style that not only gave me a vivid picture of each event in the book, but allowed my own imagination to follow and conjure the picture she was weaving.
I loved following Peaches an ordinary mother who found herself in an impossible situation of finding the killer of an old dear friend who found himself in an equally impossible situation that cost him his life.
Peaches & the Gambler is definitely a book I enjoyed from start to finish, and even in-between. The story flowed perfectly, allowing me as the reader to follow it effortlessly, all the while having a satisfying experience.
I must admit I read it twice, as I do most of my favorite books and I found it hard to put down each time. Thank you A. T. Hicks for allowing me this opportunity and bringing this work to my attention.
