Stand By Your Man by Bobby Hutchinson_ - Copy

A week ago, when I was making my first visit to Story Cartel I discovered “Stand By Your Man” by Bobby Hutchinson. I have to confess, I met Bobby Hutchinson 25 years ago when I was attending writers conferences and had dreams of being an author myself. Through time I lost touch with her and most of the other members of the writing community. I was delighted to see her work again so I downloaded it for free. For the record, I read widely and I know I can give this review with no bias.

I used to be an avid reader of simple romances and while my tastes have changed more toward woman’s contemporary works through the years, I absolutely loved “Stand By Your Man.”

This is by no means a simple romance; it has mystery, as well as the depth of contemporary elements that include a dysfunctional family and Maddy the PI, whose secondary job seems to keeping the whole Bertusso family from falling apart or destroying itself. Add to that, hunky Finn Fisher who has his own emotional baggage, plus Zoe, his adorable daughter and the rest of his dysfunctional family; top it all off the undeniable attraction that leads to the steamy sex that he and Maddy share with no promises or commitments and you have a great read.

I loved the snappy dialogue, the quirky and sometimes hackneyed little lines, the notes she tacked up everywhere, the farting dog; it was a refreshing, fun filled read with a depth I don’t always expect to find in this genre. I have to admit that as I read I smiled often, even giggled out loud.

Snap this one up! Don’t miss a treasure!
