Review: Lydia by Tim Sandlin

Lydia is a Novel of Fiction by Tim Sandlin from SourceBooks Landmark.

Book Blurb:

Managing the Virgin Birth Home for Unwed Mothers means the women in Sam Callahan’s life keep his world interesting.  But it’s his family members that really take the cake.  His daughter may be having a nervous breakdown, and his mother’s just out of prison for attempting to poison the president’s dog.

And when they hit the road with a geriatric, an adoptive son trying to discover his parentage and an enraged psychopath on their tails, all hell may break loose.

My thoughts:

Lydia is the first book I have read in the GroVant, Wyoming series by Tim Sandlin and I honestly laughed until tears rolled down my face.

This book tugs on all the emotional strings - humor, anger, regret, love, hate, forgiveness and triumph - to name a few.

I instantly connected with the characters in this book and now I have to get the first three in the wonderful series.

I give Lydia 5 out of 5 stars.

Sounds like a great book :)
I just wish the cover was a bit better, but then I am very shallow
