Book Review -- The Ladies Temperance Club's Farewell Tour

TITLE - The Ladies Temperance Club's Farewell Tour

AUTHOR - Jeff Lee
Publisher - Jeff Lee 

Currently available in Kindle format
I loved this book. For anyone who has read Janet Evanovich Stephanie Plum novels, it is similar in style to those, just slightly less content.
It tells the story of 3 friends who form The Ladies Temperance Club. One of them, Vonda, has lived with her abusive alcoholic boyfriend for several years. It's a strange relationship. He also hates her friends. She's finally had enough though and whacks him over the head with one of his beloved trophies and kills him. Her friends stand by her and they hide his body in the freezer of his RV and then go off on a Thelma and Louise type trip. This is where the fun starts.

Her husband was a fraudster and the repo company on their Harley Davidsons are after him and his RV. They are tracking the RV across the state and come into some amusing scrapes along the way. Each time you think they're catching the girls up, something happens which delays them. It's such fun! Then they do catch them up and take the RV, along with the body in the freezer. Although the girls don't know that it's repo guys that have took it and panic, not wanting to report it stolen as they don't want the police to find what's in it.

It really is a fun and light hearted read. I believe there is to be a sequel to the book and I can't wait to read it. I think the book is well written, humourous and you keep wanting to read more.

My rating - 5/5
