Between a Book and a Hard Place By Denise Swanson: Review/Giveaway
by Cynthia Chow
No one would ever call Shadow Bend, Missouri boring, and nothing highlighted this more than their most recent city council meeting. As the owner of Devereaux’s Dime Store and Gift Baskets, Dev Sinclair had strong interest on the vote to approve zoning for a proposed SRO. The shocker is that this would be the least contentious topic of the night. First, the Sinclair family nemesis Nadine Underwood supported an alientologist’s proposal to study residents being body snatched by Extra-Terrestrials. Then, closer and more lethal to Dev’s heart, the newest husband of her mother appeared with an offer to support the reestablishment of a much needed Shadow Bend Library.
