High Cotton (Bucklin Family Reunion series #1) by Debby Mayne [Giveaway]

ISBN: 9781683701309
Gilead Publishing
Christian fiction $15.99
About the book: Some families are filled with so much love they can't help but drive each other crazy.

Shay Henke has mixed feelings about going to her family's next reunion. On the one hand, she'll get to see everyone in her mama's family---folks she loves unconditionally. On the other hand, she knows there'll be more drama than you can shake a stick at.

The days leading up to the event bring one surprise after another. First Shay must deal with her sister-in-law's deep, dark secret. Then she has to contend with the childish ways of her business-mogul twin cousins. And when her high school crush wants to be her date to the reunion . . . well, it may have been a dream come true for Shay's teen self, but the woman she's become doesn't know what to make of this.

Shay's contentment is challenged, and she's determined to shake things up a bit. But will she find the excitement she's looking for, or will Shay realize she prefers her quiet and predictable life?

One thing is certain: Life with the Bucklin family is never boring.

  2. We call it iced tea where I'm from, but it's the same thing. Thanks for the giveaway!

  3. Do you like sweet tea (I'm "talking" ice cold, dark, sweet, Southern tea)? It's okay

    Have you ever visited in the South - or do you live there? I have never visited the south

  4. Even tho I grew up in the south, I'm not really a fan of sweet/iced tea. I prefer hot tea.

  5. I love sweet tea and have visited the south several times. One of my favorite attractions is the Charleston Tea Plantation.

  6. I have never visited in the South and do not like cold sweet tea.

  7. I love sweet tea! I haven't visited the South yet, but would like to go there someday.

  8. My gram always made sweet tea when i was growing up. This was in Pennsylvania before us Northerners really had sweet tea as a thing. Most places and restaurants always had tea with lemon flavor, not sweet tea. I love the south and hope to retire there someday.

  9. I am born, live and raised in the south. I love dark sweetened ice tea.
