In Tales, I got to know the very colorful Alabama Drunk, Donny, and really enjoyed the stories he told - and laughed out loud in several places. I found Slobbering Drunk better in the way a 2nd book by the same author is often better than the 1st. There's more plot in this one, with a touch of mystery and a touch of romance. When I finished this book, I was both laughing and crying! I really couldn't put it down for the last half of the book! Try it!
