Families are great aren't they? There is just no one who gets you quite like a sibling or cousin--- the inside jokes and the old memories.

Of course, there is no one who can drive you crazy quite like family either is there? We may love our families, but every family always seems to have some sort of crazy! Sometimes it can be great to skip our own versions of family craziness and dive into someone else's... even if it's just fiction!

High Cotton by Debby Mayne allows us to do just that:

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 reunions . . . 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 predictable life? One thing is certain: Life in the Bucklin family is never boring.

If you're looking for a fun quick read full of fun, laughs and yes, some drama too, this is certainly one worth checking out. In this first book in the new Bucklin Family Reunion series, we are introduced to a fun cast of characters that are easy to find yourself falling in love with and wanting to find out what happens next. Like all real life families, it is packed full of the essentials- love, drama and some heartwarming moments. Makings of a great family AND a great read.

While it truly was a great story and well worth the read, I must admit that it took a bit to get into the story and follow along. This book has multiple POVs, so with each chapter it jumped back and forth. Definitely not the easiest to keep up with. They didn't seem to be in a particular order, and so that kind of threw me... especially in those initial chapters when you are really just trying to figure out whose who. I'd find myself having to check to remind myself whose point of view I was reading now. Towards the end it became a little easier, but it certainly took some getting used to.

Overall, it was still a really fun read and I look forward to reading more!
