Book Review: A Longer Fall

In this second thrilling installment of the Gunnie Rose series, Lizbeth Rose is hired onto a new crew for a seemingly easy protection job, transporting a crate into Dixie, just about the last part of the former United States of America she wants to visit. But what seemed like a straight-forward job turns into a massacre as the crate is stolen. Up against a wall in Dixie, where social norms have stepped back into the last century, Lizbeth has to go undercover with an old friend to retrieve the crate as what’s inside can spark a rebellion, if she can get it back in time.

I received a free digital copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I am going to start this review off by saying I am a bit biased for Charlaine Harries. I have and I will read anything she comes out with (including her grocery list!) A Longer Fall feels so much different than most of her series. There is less magical and fantasy (although there is some mixed in) and more realism. I really enjoyed the first installment of the Gunnie Rose stories. I love how Harris doesn’t make things easy for her heroines. They struggle.. They struggle a LOT. 

I loved the honest take Harries took with this story. She took the issues of today and built an immersive story around them. We are a split US country at the moment and she built this amazing dystopian world around it. The pacing of this book is wonderful. It was fast and kept the story exciting and thrilling. It keeps you at the edge of your seat. 

I really just could not put this book down. I just wanted to stay in this world that Harris created and keep reading. I cannot wait until the next book! As with any Charlaine Harris, you can’t get too attached to the characters as no one is safe!!! 

Thank you so much to Charlaine Harris, Saga Press Publishing, and NetGalley for making this review possible.
