Snakes and Jails and Puppy Dog Tails

When I chose, Snakes and Jails and Puppy Dog Tails by Mallary Mitchell to read and review, I didn’t realize it would be a short story. If so I may not have chosen it, but I did, and I am happy I did.

It’s a feel good story about when a brother makes a sacrifice to keep his older brother and father out of jail and he lets true love pass him by.

Levi Wallace loves Arabella Trask, but out of misplaced loyalty to his brother, he marries Joelle Barker who has gotten in the family way by Levi’s married brother, Giles.

Fast forward eight years. Belle finds a man, unconscious by the side of the road with two children. It is Levi Wallace. Even though still hurt by Levi’s betrayal, she helps get him home.

Snakes and Jails and Puppy Dog Tails, is a quick, satisfying read. It left me with a smile and isn’t that what a good story should do.
