Christmas in the Wylder County Jail


          Adelaide Willowby is having a bad day. First, the madam of the Wylder County Social Club has kicked out the love of her life—for good this time. One of her best girls is getting married and her sister and daughter are barely speaking to her. Then, her long-lost brother-in-law shows up, claiming ownership of her business. What else can go wrong?

          Russ Holt has relied on alcohol to quiet the ghosts from is past for far too long. When his latest bender causes him to let down both Addie and his son, he knows something has to change. When a stranger in town is found dead and Miss Adelaide is arrested for murder, Russ smells a rat. Can he come out of the bottle long enough to save Addie—and win back her heart?

 Our Review: Welcome back Miss Adelaide and the ladies of the Wylder County Social Club! The women, as usual, juggle several balls while assisting a bevy of nuns as they care for victims of a violent train wreck—in the middle of the blizzard of the century—all the while trying to help Addie prove herself innocent of murder charges. Just your average day in Wylder, Wyoming.

With the usual snappy colloquial dialogue authors, Nicole McCaffrey and Kim Turner are known for, the descriptions of the causes and effects of long term alcohol use/abuse are spot-on and detailed for a common sense approach to getting sober. Well done, ladies!  

 On a scale of 1-5, Christmas in the Wylder County Jail deserves a 7.
