Book Review: My Cousin, the Piney by Tony Digerolamo (The Pineys Book 1)


     Professional gambler, Lewis' vehicle breaks down in a backwoods Jersey town. Normally this would be a swift fix and back on the way to his tournament, but when a devil bites him and is able to take on his form Lewis must band together with the hicks in order to send this creature back to hell before it kills others. With talking heads, witchcraft, and devils around every bend the Galloway cousins might be our only hope. 

    I received an eBook copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. I have to start by saying that I love the cover of this book. It is eye-catching and if you are someone who buys things based on the cover this would be one that would draw you in. 

    I will also say there are some pretty gross points in this book, but you don't have time to be disgusted about them until the end. I won't say what it is, but you'll know what I mean when you get into it. How it was handled, however, did not turn me off from the entire series. So long as there isn't a repeat performance, that is. 

    I enjoyed the hicks chasing after shapeshifters and other terrible creatures of hell in an attempt to keep Jersey and the world itself safe. I'm a little amused that there are portals to hell in Jersey because I won't pretend it is the first time I've heard Jersey referred to as hell. I've never personally been, but it still amused me. 

    The characters in this book are realistic, sassy, and as frustrating as those certain family members we all have but hate to acknowledge. I would hate to have to introduce any of the members in this book to anyone, let alone admit that I share blood with them. Course I don't admit that for half of my actual blood, so I can't say much. My favorite character in this book was probably Hem's mom. Sure, she was a rotted corpse, but she had her good traits and could see her being lots of fun as the series progresses. That came out a lot weirder than it sounded, but you'll understand what I mean once you read the book. 

    This book is available on Kindle Unlimited or you can buy it on Amazon for $2.99 by clicking here
