Secret Heart of Lacie Blade by Diane J. Reed
Publisher: Bandits Ranch Books, LLC
This isn’t just the PTA it is the Gangsta PTA.
Lacie Blade knows she is hardly mother of the year especially after her release from prison on a bad rap. All she wants is to go home and hug her beloved son Winchester. Lacie decides that she needs to convince the handsome principal to take Winchester back when he is expelled from school for fighting kids that teased him about his “con” mother. And to do that she needs to become the president of the PTA and to fundraise more money than the school has ever seen.
Luckily Lacie knows all about the skeletons in her neighbors’ closets and the bodies at the bottom of Bender Lake. With a little magical help from her fortune-telling friend, Granny Tinker, Lacie uses every trick in the book to blackmail and spy her way into providing the textbooks and computers that the school so desperately needs. The jaded principal soon discovers that Lacie has a heart far bigger than her rap sheet even if it is hidden. She might also just be the best thing that happened to him not to mention Bender Lake Elementary school.
This is a sweet novella that is a fast read but will also have readers wanting to check out the rest of the books in the series. Readers can easily read this story and follow it very well even if they haven’t read the other book in the series. The characters are interesting and make for a fun read.
I give this one 4 red roses
