I have been writing contemporary romance for fifteen years. Trends come and go, but I have stayed true to the genre I most enjoy reading – southern romance. I have lived my entire life in East Tennessee and I write about that place because it is the place I know best. A place where we were taught to say "ma'am" and "sir" from the moment we could talk. A place where no one considers it to be a proper Sunday without fried chicken being consumed at some point. A place passionate about football. A place where few of us can make it through an entire day without quoting some wise adage of our grandmother. Of course, people everywhere, including the place where you live, have these same values, but I don't know those other places. I do know East Tennessee and the people who live here, and these are the people I write about.

LOVE this book!! I'm not much on romance novels, and Schede doesn't write the 'typical' romance novel. She got the "southernisms" down to a fine art, and I found myself reaching for my tablet, wanting to see 'what next?'. Very enjoyable, and a great way to spend an rainy afternoon! Now I'm going to find her other book and read it.

Carol Schede is the queen of anticipation. Ready Or Not is a fun romp through the intricacies of a romance set in the south. Tennessee, to be precise. The heroine, Ginger Lee, does her southern sisters proud, not only with her `big' hair, but also the way she wraps her poor unsuspecting neighbor and lifelong friend, Sam Pepper, around her elegant finger. Then torments him until he's on his knees. I love the-girl-next-door stories and, hands down, this one is the best I've read for a long while. Great humor and heartfelt passion.

Schede shines again with her next story. Ready or not shows us again that she can write friends growing into more than just friends. Warm like a cup of hot chocolate and spicy at the same time, Ready or Not is something you can curl up with anytime. Love this one and highly recommend it.
