Splendora: A Novel
The new librarian in the tiny town of Splendora, Texas, has a big secret
A stunning and stylish femme fatale named Miss Jessie Gatewood has arrived in the dusty hamlet of Splendora. Miss Jessie is the new town librarian—but she has much bigger plans than just shelving books. She intends to give the town and its people a much-needed makeover. But even as she is influencing the fashion sense of the local ladies—and winning the heart of the lovesick Brother Leggett, Splendora’s Baptist minister—a surprising plan for vengeance occupies the fabulous Miss Gatewood’s mind.
In Edward Swift’s provocative, hilarious first novel, a small town is turned upside down by a new arrival—and a shocking return.
