by Cookie O'Gorman
Genre: YA Romance/Murder Mystery
Release Date: April 5th 2018
In the south, everyone has a secret--and murder is served with sweet tea.
The word's out: Ethan Wilder’s coming back to town, and the people of Bowie, Georgia are in a southern tizzy. Everyone knows the story. He shot and killed his sister four years ago, and people say his father, Jim Wilder, the biggest holy roller this side of the Mississippi, sent him packing for just that reason. Even if her death was unofficially ruled a suicide, Ethan’s return has everybody talking.
Seventeen-year-old Delilah Doherty can’t go anywhere without hearing his name. Born and raised in Bowie, Delilah knows firsthand about the gossipmongers and how they love a good scandal. The daughter of a wild child and niece of the local psychic, she’s also the only one who doubts Ethan’s guilt.
After Ethan saves her life, the two start a slow and steady burn neither can deny. But when Bowie's spiritual leader is nearly murdered, it rocks the small southern town to its core. Delilah and Ethan are caught in the crossfire, their relationship threatened before it's even begun. Someone has it out for Ethan's family. With everyone convinced of Ethan's guilt, it's up to Delilah to unravel the mystery before someone else gets hurt or worse...dead.

Aside from the ridiculously long title, this book was really enjoyable! Very engaging and quirky. I was on hook, line and sinker from the moment Delilah and Ethan first laid eyes on each other. Great slow burn beginning tempered with the central mystery made it a page turner for me.
Delilah is hilarious and I really enjoyed her character humor, as well as her relationship with Mom and aunt.
Honestly, I was turned off by a situation involving a teacher being offensive and viciously rude to Delilah. I found it very unbelievable and every scene involving them together stuck out like a sore thumb in an otherwise well-written book.
5 Stars for a quirky and funny coming of age mystery!
