Book Review: Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins

Rebel BelleBook Review: Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins

When a Homecoming Dance goes horribly wrong, Harper Price inherits the powers of a Paladin who is protecting; of course, her arch nemesis. What’s a girl to do but kick some bad guy butt? But now, this new job is seriously getting in the way of cotillion and her other relationships.

I only chose two quotes from this book, but I have to say, I absolutely love the voice of Rachel Hawkins! I’ve read her other books, and even; in full disclosure, own a pink taser. Gotta love Christmas gifts from people who get you. She is witty, and sarcastic, but still manages to pull at your heartstrings. This book was the first book in a new series and was entertaining from start to finish. As someone who lives in the south, but doesn’t always get the south, I loved some of the nuances hidden in this book.

Great first line:

Looking back, none of this would have happened if I’d brought lip gloss the night of the Homecoming Dance.

On being polite even when you don’t want to be:

And you especially need to be polite to said douchebag when it happens to be the nephew of Saylor Stark, president of the Pine Grove Junior League; head of the Pine Grove Betterment Society; chairwoman of the Grove Academy School Board; and, most importantly, organizer of the Pine Grove’s Annual Cotillion.
