Pistol Fanny’s Hank & Delilah
Annie Rose Welch
Never fall in love with a bank robber.
Especially if she’s the one who robbed your bank, took you hostage, and dumped you unconscious at the local convenience store. And definitely not if you are the assistant district attorney of Tupelo, Mississippi.
This is the advice Hank Huckleberry Rivers would have given himself, back when he was a man who vowed to always walk on the right side of the law. The same law that had seemed sacrosanct ever since the day he and his friends watched as two men were murdered right below their tree house.
Falling in love with a dangerous criminal can have life-altering consequences, though. And when the past and the present meet head-on, Hank finds himself in more trouble than he ever bargained for. He must run to save his life, daring to find answers to the questions threatening his safety and his heart, as the killer below the tree house comes after Hank—and his pistol-wielding bank robber.
It’s a simple case of love in the first degree.
BLP REVIEW ~ Tracy
| I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I started reading this book but whatever it was didn’t even get close to what I found! Hank & Delilah’s story was a riot.
It was a quirky, engaging and very entertaining read packed with action, adventure, mystery and romance. The story had an old fashioned feel to it at times – possibly down to Del and her music choices and how she lived her life, I’m not entirely sure – but I loved it. I laughed a lot during the read but it wasn’t all fun times, there were some sad and serious events that shaped both our main characters.
Both leads were very likable and I was rooting for them from the off. Hank had a great sense of humour and his take on people and events tickled me. His persistence and determination to win Delilah round was endearing, while at the same time I could understand Del’s hesitation and slight reluctance to become involved with him!
We were introduced to a whole host of characters that give us an idea of the kind of lives our couple lead.. When we first met Hank’s friends they were young and total boys and it was interesting to see who they had grown and how they had changed now that they were older – but the one thing that stayed constant for this little gang was their loyalty and friendship.
If you’re looking for a book that’s a little different from your normal read, that has the lot going on and will keep your attention, give Pistol Fanny’s a go. You won’t regret it!
Hank and Delilah get 4 pistol toting stars from me!!
About the Author
Born and raised in New Orleans, Annie has a habit of shortening her words and telling long stories. She speaks with a southern flair and cooks with it too. At the tender age of twenty- one, she hitched up her wagons (took her first plane ride) and moved out west to the big shake (California). Her writing career began one sleepless night when she imagined a gorgeous woman and a man with maniacal hair floating above her like lightening bugs falling from the sky. Curious about them, their story, and why they were floating around in her head, she sat down and penned (typed) her first novel, Marigny Street. A dream come true for her, she hasn’t stopped writing since. She loves a damn good love story, always has, no matter what the genre. She is particularly moved by imperfect love that in its own unique way is perfect, the notion of love at first sight, soul mates, and things that are generally out of the norm.
When she’s not writing she enjoys dabbling in photography and finding new, inspirational music to add to her collection. She currently (still) resides in the big shake (although her southern roots are calling her home) with her husband, daughter, and their two peculiar dogs, Boudreaux and Tabasco (who, call her crazy, bark with an accent).
