You just have to picture in your mind, a tiny southern town, in Alabama, where people still believe in the upper and lower class of folks. Then you take the senator's 30 something daughter, who is a judge, still living with her parents, and acting like a little girl. And the housekeeper's son, who claims to be innocent of the murder he sat in prison for 15 years for. And the only job this college educated man could get after paroled, was in his cousins auto repair shop. Here is the base of the story.
Then you add three families, with twisted mixed relationships, deception, dishonesty, illegitimate children, affairs, murders, and small town gossip.
What a story, it flows slow like hot molasses, it is steamy enough to heat up the syrup, and southern to the point that you will want a mint julep while reading it.. There's so many secrets to be revealed, plot twists to surprise, that kept me reading, even though the irrelevant numerous details are numbing at times. ~ Three spoons
