Blog Tour | If The Creek Don’t Rise – Leah Weiss

He’s gonna be sorry he ever messed with me and Loretta Lynn
Sadie Blue has been a wife for fifteen days. That’s long enough to know she should have never hitched herself to Roy Tupkin, even with the baby.
Sadie is desperate to make her own mark on the world, but in remote Appalachia, a ticked out of town is hard to come by, and hope often gets stomped out. When a stranger sweeps into Baines Creek and knocks things off kilter, Sadie finds herself with an unexpected lifeline… if she can just figure out how to use it.
This intimate insight into a fiercely proud, tenacious community unfolds through the voices of the forgotten folks of Baines Creek. With a colorful cast of characters that each contribute a new perspective, If The Creek Don’t Rise is a debut novel bursting with heart, honesty and homegrown grit.
If The Creek Dont Rise

Howdy Y’all! Another blog tour today, this time for If The Creek Don’t Rise by Leah Weiss. This is a debut novel which is always exciting but I imagine pretty scary for the author?! Everyone knows by now that I love the South so this book jumped right out at me. That and the cover which is pretty emotional in itself.

The book was almost like sitting in a quiet Southern kitchen having sweet iced tea with an old friend. The story is told from various perspectives which I really liked, and I thought that the writing style set the perfect tone throughout. It’s an easy read, steady pace and has a great ending!

This book is available from the 22nd August and you can get a copy here
