Pistol Fanny's Hank & Delilah by Annie Rose Welch
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
As a young kid, Hank Rivers wanted to connect with the dead. Particularly Elvis - he was in Tupelo, the birth place of Elvis after all. He thought it would get him the girls. Unfortunately all it got him was to witness a double murder. He made a pact with is young best friends to hide the evidence and stay quiet about it.
Years later, after going to college and becoming a lawyer, Hank is back in Tupelo. Whilst going to the bank to get some needed cash, Hank gets more than he bargained for. He is again a witness to a crime, a bank robbery. And low and behold, he falls in love with one of them. He follows the gang from the bank and slams smack bang into Rotunda's chest, knocking him out. He wakes up with his brother Curly and a homeless man, wondering how and why? The next thing he sees is the girl from the bank - or is it? He's not sure without her wearing the mask. She befriends them and takes them to her establishment - Pistol Fanny's. It's a bar that performs skits and Hank can see one that's made for him and his Darlin' - Hank & Delilah. Hank then goes through a whole heap of emotions and turmoil while he follows Pistolette / Delilah wondering if they are the same woman who is robbing banks with her sisters.
This book starts out strong and had a mixture of Stand by Me, The Hangover and Sister Act all rolled into one which had me intrigued. At times I was a bit lost with all the characters and the different tangents the story line was going, but on the whole its was a good novel. I was rooting for Hank to find his "air" and finally get some resolution from his childhood.
I received an ebook from the author for an honest review.
