Family Drama With Southern Charm | High Cotton by Debby Mayne

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 in the Bucklin family is never boring.


MY REVIEW

Full of family drama and Southern charm, High Cotton by Debby Mayne is a delight to read. Each character brings something unique to the story, through their circumstances, personality, and wants, as it centers around a family reunion and unfolds from different perspectives. There are a few secrets, some learned lessons, a bit of romance, and a whole lot of crazy family quirkiness, and I enjoyed every page. It made me laugh, it made me tear up, and it left me wanting more of the Bucklin family. A quick and heartwarming read, High Cotton is a perfect book for readers of Southern contemporary fiction, and I recommend it.
