I want to thank the author and publisher for an opportunity to read this book through a giveaway. At first I didn’t know what to think about the title but as you go along it makes sense. The book is like that also. The story is about an alcoholic who owns a bar. Like every bar there are the usual and unusual regulars. At the beginning it seems the book will be about the bar and the clientele but as you go along you realize it is about the owner, Ray, and his struggles in life. It is the story of an alcoholic. The book is a great read.
I have put this book on here two other times but I am going to put it on once more. The author corrected some spelling errors and cleaned up the language a little bit. So, we are going to give you another crack at it. And it is only 99¢ for the Kindle version.
This book will make you laugh out loud. I loved it. I started reading it about 10 pm and stayed up until 3 am finishing it. There are more than a few colorful words in the book but they will just make you laugh harder. This is a good one.
William ‘Bayou Billy’ McCall was a outlaw who lived simultaneously between Sawdust City, Texas and Albie, Louisiana. Bayou Billy was well remembered by his colorful lifestyle. How much of it was true may never be known. Then he died. He died doing something you would not want to tell your mother about. The two towns then claimed him as their own which caused an argument about which would get the honor of burying him. It seems Billy had previously promised his body to both in exchange for special perks. The fight over Bayou Billy’s body is the funniest thing you will ever read.
This is a sweet, sad, funny – nostalgic view of adolescence in the 50’s, 60’s or 70’s. Using humor Dave Barry deftly weaves through life experiences to create a tapestry of rich, vibrant images of life through the eyes of an adolescent boy. He brilliantly paints images that feel like they were part of your own childhood memories. This edition is a small, hard-cover easy read which would be a wonderful, nostalgic Christmas gift for a baby-boomer.

This is the latest in C. L. Bevill’s Bubba series. I love this series. Bubba Snoddy is just wonderful and it makes my day when I learn there is a new one coming out. If you like a laugh mixed in with your mystery you can’t go wrong with this series!
Bubba is just doing what Bubba does. On this particular day it was delivering a casserole and buying wood to built a baby bed. On the way home he is flagged down by a woman with car trouble. She turns out to be a exotic dancer at the nearby gentleman’s club which Bubba soon learns is now owned by Bam Bam.
It doesn’t take long for him to find a dead body. Bubba always finds a dead body and that is when the fun starts. Miz Demetrice is trying to unionize the dancers, Willodean tries to arrest Homeland Security officers, David is working as a female exotic dancer and Bam Bam has a identical twin brother who is dead in the men’s room.
****The author of the series often has give aways on Facebook. Things such as removable tatoos and t shirts. For this book she gave a Amazon Fire. I was the lucky winner. I love the tablet but I want to make it clear that the prize had NO influence on my review of her book. This is the 8th book in this series. I have read all of them and most of her other books. I love her work and read her books. She does not have to give me anything to say good things about them. In fact, she has no idea about this blog and who it belongs to.
This is Bubba and Willodean’s wedding day. Everything is perfect. But with Bubba nothing is perfect.
Bubba finds a dead body in his house. A dead body that keeps disappearing. Who is the dead man? Who killed the dead man? Who keeps moving the dead man?
*****What I Thought About This Book*****
I love all the Bubba books including this one but it was a little hard to follow. There are so many characters now that it is easy to forget who they are and who they killed. I hope in the next book the villain is not connected to all the previous ones.
I still recommend the book. It was fun to read.
This book will make you laugh out loud. I loved it. There are more than a few colorful words in the book but they will just make you laugh harder. This is a good one.
