When Arlene Fleet heads up north for college, she makes three promises to God: She will stop fornicating with every boy who crosses her path; never tell another lie; and never, ever go back to the fourth rack of hell, her hometown of Possett, Alabama. All she wants from Him is one little miracle: make sure the body is never found.

Ten years later, God has broken His end of the deal. Alabama has landed on Arlene's Chicago doorstep in the form of her high school archenemy, a young woman who wants to find the golden-haired football hero who disappeared during their senior year.

To make matters worse, Arlene's African-American boyfriend, Burr, has given her an ultimatum; introduce him to her lily-white family or he's gone. Arlene would rather burn up in a fire than let him meet her steel magnolia Aunt Florence; her eccentric, half-mad Mama; her sweet-as-pecan-pie Cousin Clarice; and all the rest of her deeply racist kith and kin.

But the fickle finger of fate is pointing her south. All too soon she and Burr are on their way to confront Arlene's redneck roots, the secret she ran from, and the crime that stole her peace of mind. Back in the small town of her girlhood, Arlene's demons are closing in, and after a decade of running away, Arlene must face them all. Yet while the truth threatens to destroy the life she has built for herself, it just may open her eyes to a love powerful enough to revise her past and alter her future.

Crackling with humor, defiantly endearing characters, and plot twists that will astonish even the most jaded reader, Gods in Alabama will send you careening from tears to laughter and back. Most of all, it brings a unique, rough-around-the-edges heroine to life and makes her a permanent part of your own.

    " Pretty good. Reminds of of the movies "Hope Floats" & "Divine Secrets of the YaYa Sisterhood", course with deeper, darker issues. "

    " Audiobook. Lena promises God she'll never return to Alabama (or lie or "fornicate") after making a deal with Him that she'll never get caught for her high school crime. She manages to keep these promises for about 10 yrs, then she's forced to go home, lie and, well, 10 yrs is a REALLY long time to go without sex. This was a fun read, and it had a nice twist at the end. "

    " I finished this book and immediately began re-reading it to experience it again now that I know how the book ends. After A Grown Up Kind of Pretty, I was eager to read another book by Joshilyn Jackson and this was just as captivating. The characters are well developed and the "dark secret" theme plays out well. "

    " Great for a quick read! Not for the easily offended, though. "
