Gods in Alabama grabs you from the beginning with a great hook, quirky characters, and a few surprises along the way. It’s just plain good fun, but then it delves deeper into truth, race, and redemption.

Here’s my rankings:

4/5 stars for character
4/5 stars for plot
4/5 stars for overall

REVIEW FROM BOOKS FOR HER:

Arlene Fleet has a brand new life and a secret or two that’s kept her out of South for years—until one chases her all the way to Chicago to drag her back to face her past. Gods in Alabama grabs you from the beginning with a great hook, quirky characters, and few surprises along the way. It’s just plain good fun, but then it delves deeper into truth, race, and redemption.
