Never fall in love with a bank robber.
Especially if she’s the one who robbed your bank, took you hostage, and dumped you unconscious at the local convenience store. And definitely not if you are the assistant district attorney of Tupelo, Mississippi.
This is the advice Hank Huckleberry Rivers would have given himself, back when he was a man who vowed to always walk on the right side of the law. The same law that had seemed sacrosanct ever since the day he and his friends watched as two men were murdered right below their tree house.
Falling in love with a dangerous criminal can have life-altering consequences, though. And when the past and the present meet head-on, Hank finds himself in more trouble than he ever bargained for. He must run to save his life, daring to find answers to the questions threatening his safety and his heart, as the killer below the tree house comes after Hank—and his pistol-wielding bank robber.
It’s a simple case of love in the first degree.

Excerpt 1:

Even so, these mystical women in heels who were robbing and donating continued to make headlines, and banks across the states had never been busier. Men were lining up, never taking such an interest in where their money was stashed, all in hopes of catching a glimpse of them.
Posters were made, memes popped up like mushrooms in a wet field online, and a comic strip was dedicated to these women. Pistollette was bigger than life, her legs spread apart, a pistol in each hand, looking down on the world. That exaggerated smile on her face, those brown blinking eyes.
Her sisters were right beside her, blowing things up, winking and playing the boom box, tap dancing by a door, flipping on counters. Close to their hairlines, a zipper, and a clear thin line that separated their two sides. The good and the bad. The zipper was the key to their true identity. And below them all were men, amplified cartoon hearts floating from their chests, stars in their eyes, and lust in their smiles.
The slogan for these women—not only do they steal your money, they collect interest on your heart.
The entire world knew who they were. Headlines read: Maybe coming to a bank near you.
Propaganda hung in alleys, on fences, above urinals, and below in underground train stations. They were up in pool halls, in dive bars, and on the walls of the swankiest clubs in New York. They had become art. Modern day sophisticate meets old lawless ruggedness. A huge billboard hung in Hollywood, showing the girls appearing out of smoke: Stealing the hearts of the rich guys, giving to the poor ones. Pistollette and her Sirens will take you by storm! They were for the good guys of the world who cared enough to figure it out.
They were elusive and mysterious, and there was a reward for any man who would dare remove any of their masks. The world was sure underneath the masquerades were the most beautiful faces any man had ever seen. No one ever tried. They were too stupefied in their presence. They were truck drivers’ and bikers’ dreams, doctors’ and lawyers’ fantasies.
The hoopla went on and on.

Excerpt 2:

Hank took a step toward her and she held up her hand. He stopped and swallowed hard. He had to fight the wild urge to take her in his arms and kiss her.

  “One more day, Delilah. That’s all I’m asking. It’s not a life sentence, is it?”

  “Hank, it seems you’ve found yourself in a mess. Two women? You couldn’t have fallen out of love with…Pistollette, isn’t that what you called her? So soon?”

  “No.” Hank shook his head. “I love her still. I can’t change—”

Born and raised in New Orleans, Annie has a habit of shortening her words and telling long stories. She speaks with a southern flair and cooks with it too. At the tender age of twenty- one, she hitched up her wagons (took her first plane ride) and moved out west to the big shake (California). 

Her writing career began one sleepless night when she imagined a gorgeous woman and a man with maniacal hair floating above her like lightening bugs falling from the sky. Curious about them, their story, and why they were floating around in her head, she sat down and penned (typed) her first novel, Marigny Street. A dream come true for her, she hasn't stopped writing since. She loves a damn good love story, always has, no matter what the genre. She is particularly moved by imperfect love that in its own unique way is perfect, the notion of love at first sight, soul mates, and things that are generally out of the norm.

When she's not writing she enjoys dabbling in photography and finding new, inspirational music to add to her collection. Deciding on a whim to hitch up those same wagons, Annie currently resides in Texas (where everything is bigger) with her husband, daughter, and their two peculiar dogs, Boudreaux and Tabasco (who, call her crazy, bark with an accent).

REVIEWED BY Monique Cashmere for Jo&Isalovebooks Review Team

Pistol Fanny's Hank & DelilahPistol Fanny's Hank & Delilah by Annie Rose Welch
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

As a young kid, Hank Rivers wanted to connect with the dead. Particularly Elvis - he was in Tupelo, the birth place of Elvis after all. He thought it would get him the girls. Unfortunately all it got him was to witness a double murder. He made a pact with is young best friends to hide the evidence and stay quiet about it.

Years later, after going to college and becoming a lawyer, Hank is back in Tupelo. Whilst going to the bank to get some needed cash, Hank gets more than he bargained for. He is again a witness to a crime, a bank robbery. And low and behold, he falls in love with one of them. He follows the gang from the bank and slams smack bang into Rotunda's chest, knocking him out. He wakes up with his brother Curly and a homeless man, wondering how and why? The next thing he sees is the girl from the bank - or is it? He's not sure without her wearing the mask. She befriends them and takes them to her establishment - Pistol Fanny's. It's a bar that performs skits and Hank can see one that's made for him and his Darlin' - Hank & Delilah. Hank then goes through a whole heap of emotions and turmoil while he follows Pistolette / Delilah wondering if they are the same woman who is robbing banks with her sisters.

This book starts out strong and had a mixture of Stand by Me, The Hangover and Sister Act all rolled into one which had me intrigued. At times I was a bit lost with all the characters and the different tangents the story line was going, but on the whole its was a good novel. I was rooting for Hank to find his "air" and finally get some resolution from his childhood.

I received an ebook from the author for an honest review.
