Review: Saved by the Belles by Beth Albright

Life is finally wonderful for Tuscaloosa’s Blake O’Hara Heart: a rekindled love affair with her high school sweetheart and a precious new baby on the way. But when she gets an unexpected call from Harry Heart, her soon to be ex-husband, Blake’s new sweet world is turned upside down. Harry vows his love – but soon Blake discovers he is running from a sex scandal—one that could ruin Harry, the freshman senator from Alabama, and bring down Blake right along with him.

Blake is in a fix so she does what any southern woman would do: she rounds up her Sassy Belle sisters to try to prove Harry’s innocence. Blake, Vivi and Dallas band together to fix this scandal and get that man back to Washington if it’s the last thing they do. But Blake is running out of time. Her new baby is waiting for no one as Harry’s new political career is hanging in the balance.

From a trailer-park brothel to the high-society neighborhoods of Tuscaloosa, y’all grab your best girlfriends and some sweet tea and join Blake and her girls on this twisted tale of intrigue and hilarity, southern-style.

Saved by the Belles picks up where Wedding Belles ended.  Dallas Dubois, Blake's former step-sister and frenemy who is the main character in Sleigh Belles, also makes an appearance toward the end of the novella.  I didn't believe Harry's scandal would go away as quickly as it does here, and given the bad feelings between he and Blake, I was surprised to see tender moments between them.

I was happy to read this novella over the holidays and escape to Tuscaloosa with Blake O'Hara Heart and her BFF, Vivi.  Unfortunately, I became so irritated and distressed by spelling and grammatical errors, I was glad to come to the end.  A shame really, because the first two books of the series were well-written and fun.
