Read Red Dirt Online Free - The small town of Lake Bittersweet, Oklahoma, ain't no paradise, but Sammy Lester has lived there her whole life, and she'll most likely be buried there, too. Don't matter that she barely graduated high school, or that money's tight, or that her ex-con father's on the verge of losing custody of her six-year-old half sister Decca. Sammy can't leave Lake Bittersweet. She's got nowhere else to go.
When she meets charming city boy Brayton Foster, things start looking up for once. Then one dark night, her father, Bobby Ray, goes missing, and Sammy knows in her bones who's to blame. Local drug kingpin Redbreast Tuller and his family of criminals have unfinished business with Bobby Ray, and it seems they finally caught up with him. But the sheriff is in the Tullers' back pocket, and nobody in law enforcement cares about finding Sammy's dad.
As she struggles to keep her family--and her new relationship with Brayton--from falling apart, Sammy realizes that if she wants answers, if she wants someone to pay, she'll have to handle it her damn self. Because in a place like Lake Bittersweet, justice ain't something you're given--it's something you take.

So I received this book in the mail not knowing much about it, in the end it was a pretty good book. Not REALLY good, but pretty good. The things I liked about the book were the murder mystery and the family dynamics. However, the relationship in this book was satisfactory. The two characters nev...

I am not the target audience for this book (a teenager.) However, I am a teacher, and I read many YA and middle-grade books. That said: I found some aspects of the book engaging and some troubling. Sammy Lester just turned 18, and she has been smoking, drinking, and having sex for some time. She...

This book is hard to review. Mostly because it's not in a genre I usually read, but also because I really disliked the first 1/3 of this book.
In "Red Dirt", Sammy and Denver's father goes missing and no one seems to really care (after an initial search). Sammy is trying to juggle the loss of her...

I wasn't sure what to expect with this one. I knew it was going to be a bit of a mystery, but I couldn't tell if it was a book I would have picked off the shelf at Barnes and Noble or not. It was not. Yet, I was seriously surprised with how much I liked this novel and that I actually found myself...

This book is very amazing and even though Sammy has so many problems to deal with and they had gotten even bigger when Brayton was introduced into the story. It sucked that when her dad went missing none of the authorities even cared about him and then Sammy had to start caring for her as well. I...

This one is tough to rate. To start with the "tone" of the book took some getting use to because the narration is very "country" which I'm not use to. The book is part mystery, part romance. I enjoyed the mystery part, it was a simple slightly predictable mystery but still an okay read. The roman...
