“Don’t judge a book by its cover.” Oh, come on. I gleefully judge books by their covers. And there is one cover element that experience has taught me is an indicator of a deliciously terrible book: the phrase “USA Today Best Selling Author” emblazoned on the front.
Man, I don’t know if it’s merely a coincidence but the books that I’ve read that trumpet THAT particular achievement… Oof. They’ve been bad. Throw-‘em-at-the-wall bad. So I had very low expectations for Red’s Hot Honky-Tonk Bar by Pamela Morsi when I saw it in the library. But I figured it would be a quick read and maybe fun to review (and savage) so I put it in the basket. Well, I was in for a surprise.
